HBT Publications is a company that was established in the early 1990s and claims to give people an honest chance to work for them, from home, and make a real income with no limitations.
This company claims to hire people as “Independent Commissioned Mailers,” a job which requires you to mail out order forms for their company from the comfort of your home.
HBT Publications says it can hire people to do this type of work from their home because it saves them so much money in overhead costs. They will pay their workers $5.00 per mailed envelope guaranteed, and all you need to start is to pay a $35 registration fee.
How It Works
After you register, you will be sent a kit of provided materials, including envelopes, brochures, and order forms for their “Free Mailers Program.” You will then follow detailed instructions to put together and process each of the envelopes.
All the envelopes you receive will be addressed and stamped already. As long as you work for HBT Publications, you will never be expected to manage the cost of postage or mailing lists.
They also promise that you will never be asked to sell items, you will never mail anything you might find objectionable, you will never have to speak to customers or handle products.
There is a lot of skepticism surrounding “envelope stuffing schemes.” HBT Publications addresses this on their website, saying that companies who claimed that people could get rich off this opportunity and promised to pay exorbitant incomes for this work ruined the reputation of the industry.
Instead, HBT Publications says that their promise of $5.00 per envelope is a realistic offer, and that you are guaranteed payment for each envelope you mail.
In addition, they have a program which will allow you to earn even more money, by giving you the opportunity to make commission on sales which result from your mailers. This commission based opportunity is not really detailed on the website, unfortunately.
However they do promise that if you are unhappy with their program that you are able to return their kit and materials within 30 days of receiving them and get a full refund of your registration cost.
And if you stick with the opportunity, they say that your registration fee will be refunded to you automatically after you complete 100 mailings – the fee is only a safeguard for them to cover the cost of materials for people who order the kits and never complete their work.
