Are you a responsible and effective salesperson who would like
to earn commission from a few hours of work per week?
Our sales in bookstores are going well, and now we are looking for one
or more long-term Thailand residents who would like to earn commission
by pitching, stocking, and collecting payments for Thailand Fever in local, non-bookstore venues
such as bars, language schools, matchmaking outfits, etc. We'd like
to find sales reps in at least Bangkok, Pattaya, and Phuket, and any
other area with big sales potential. The sky's the limit, since the
venues are up to your own creative talent.
Why Thailand Fever?
You've probably seen the "competition" yourself at Thai bookstores.
It's all fun but trashy novels and sensational accounts of problems.
This is the first book we've seen that is non-fiction and offers
useful advice as to how to avoid problems. And it's the only
bilingual book we've seen on the topic. In just two months of initial
sales, we ran through our entire first printing of 1,000 copies. This
is a great opportunity for any sales person.
Specifically, we're looking for people who wish to:
- take units on consignment,
- choose venues,
- stock them and maintain stock at the venues,
- collect payment from the venues, and
- return payment minus commission to the publisher.
You may pursue any venue except for bookstores or websites that sell
newly manufactured books. So, for example, you may pursue bars,
language schools, matchmaking outfits, street vendors or on-the-street
agents in relevant areas, bookstores that primarily sell used books,
etc. Part of your job is to come up with creative venues.
You can either offer the books to the venues on consignment or
outright sale. You can divide your commission between yourself and
your venues in whatever way you see fit. Either way, your commission
from the publisher will be the same, and the exact percent will depend
on how many units you can sell each month.
We can discuss exclusivity to territories; it depends on how many
salespeople we find and how much work they commit to perform in their

Obviously, we're in a tricky spot here: the ideal candidate is
familiar with the scenes where Westerners get romantically involved
with Thais (which often includes bars, nightclubs, etc.), but who is
also diligent and will treat our books and payments responsibly. It's
fair to say that the two goals are often in conflict, since the
temptations are great at those locations. By offering books on
consignment, we will be taking a risk, and so we need to know that we
can trust you. Please help us evaluate you by providing us with some
good references as to your previous responsible performance and sales
