As seen on TV just ‘ad’s to success!
2009 saw the beginning of great things for the company with the launch of its first ever television advert.
Such was the success of the advert, we went on to create another one and have further plans to take the
campaign over to Irish television in the summer.

The TV ad campaign has led to Distributors’ sales increasing, as more people – becoming aware of the brand
– open the catalogue packs and order. We’ve had more people than ever before also requesting a copy of the
catalogues through our website, which we pass on to the nearest ordering Distributor. So, before we even
launched our TV recruitment advert, sponsoring was increasing as people became more aware of the brand.




The story so far…
5 September 2009
The audience of the Kleeneze Xmas Showcase at the NIA in Birmingham are the first to see Kleeneze’s new
advertising campaign. “TV changes people’s perceptions,” stated Managing Director Jamie Stewart after the
first showing of the ad. “How many people do you know who watch TV during the day who could see your
Kleeneze business being advertised on national TV? I’d urge you to spend some time really thinking about
how you will use this powerful media to benefit your business.”

                                                      COMPANY MAGAZINE

21 September 2009
Worth almost a quarter of a million pounds, the advert ran for four weeks from Monday 21 September across
a wide-range of channels. Working with the media agency, Kleeneze had opted for daytime TV, specifically
targeting the average Kleeneze customer profile.

28 September 2009
Our new advertising campaign certainly hit the ground running in its first week, as hundreds of leads came
pouring through. The first showing was on ITV1 at 10.10am on Monday morning and just seconds later, the
catalogue requests came flooding in. Here is some of our Distributors’ feedback:

                                              “Angel and I would like to say a big thank you to all those
                                              involved with the TV ad campaign and the email notifications we
                                              get when a customer requests a catalogue,” said Bronze
                                              Executive Distributors Angel and Stuart Hill from Leeds.
                                              “We received an email last week to advise us that a local lady,
                                              Jackie, had requested a catalogue. I clicked the link to inform the
                                              company that we would deliver one to her.

                                              She only lived 5 minutes away, just outside the area that we
                                              drop our books, and she had a catalogue through her door
                                              within a few hours of the request. That evening she called us to
                                              ask for another order form as the first was full! When I dropped
                                              it off the next morning she completed her order for £154.
                                              She has recently moved to the UK from the USA and needed
                                              loads of stuff for the house so she sent the text after seeing the
                                              TV ad.”

“I recently received an email from Kleeneze to deliver a catalogue to a prospective customer that had seen the
television advert,” said Silver Distributor Jason Jones in Birmingham. “I thought I’d do a blanket drop of
catalogues in the area while I was there. I dropped 200 catalogues, including the prospective customer, and
collected 24 orders totalling £355.50!”

“We received an email from Kleeneze asking us to drop a catalogue to an address in our area, and after a bit
of searching found a door behind a shop which was marked flat A and flat B,” explained Keith Glass and
Margaret Holvec, Bronze Executive Distributors in Surrey. “As we don’t usually put books through
these types of doors (because it’s often difficult to find out which person picked up the package), I sent a text
to the person who requested the catalogue asking her to ensure that it was she who retrieved it. I said that I
would collect it the following morning. She texted me back saying that she would leave the book outside
before going to bed. When it wasn’t there this morning I sent another message to remind her. Within a few
minutes of me driving off I got a text saying that it was there now. I turned around and went back to find an
order for £73.75. Thank you Kleeneze for finding a customer for us that we would never have found
ourselves.”


28 October 2009
Throughout the whole of October, Kleeneze continued to reel from the response of its TV campaign. Both
sales and sponsoring figures soared and Distributors all over the Network got out there to back the campaign,

                                                                                                               5

ensuring they branded everything with the Kleeneze name and passed on the advert to their friends and
family.

So, imagine the excitement when, on 28 October, we announced we were running the advert again. It’s a
well known fact that repeating your advertising works. With repeat advertising, not only do you increase the
number of people who see it, you also shift the expectation of the viewer. The more times a prospective
customer sees YOUR advert, the more he or she will shift their expectations about the number of other
consumers who will ask for a Kleeneze catalogue. Simply put, the more advertising the customer sees, the
more likely they are to buy from you.

December 2009
The Kleeneze TV ad runs for another four weeks:

“I just thought I would email you a thank you for the TV advert,” emailed Mick McCaul, Gold Distributor
from Bradford. “You passed on to me two requests from people who wanted to see the catalogue. The first
gave me an order for £18. With the second one, I decided to do a blanket drop of the whole area. I put out
around 200 catalogues and picked up £447.25, gaining myself another 35 customers in the process

It worked out at £12.77 per order, but when you take into account I got one order for £62 and one for £50
the rest still average out at £10.15 per order. I earned about £93 for about 7-8 hours work which is over £11
per hour!

Brilliant, this is better than my previous job! Roll on the next advertising campaign!”

“I just wanted to let you know that the TV advert has really created awareness to customers about Kleeneze
products,” said Felix Onyema, Distributor in Newcastle. “A customer contacted me after the Kleeneze
advert and I gave her the catalogue. The next day she placed an order worth £157. Today, she has placed yet
another order worth about £77 and has also contacted all her friends to see the catalogue too.”

“Thank you for passing on the catalogue lead,” said Gold Distributors, Cathy and John Reilly in
Northampton. “We dropped the catalogue pack the day we got the email and our lead couldn’t believe she
got it so quick after she requested it. She was delighted and spent £22. We did the street and got another
order for £25. Keep the requests coming!”

9 January 2010
A brand new year and a brand new advertising campaign! Kleeneze announces that it’s going back on TV
screens this time with a recruitment advert.

“The 4-week advertising campaign was a trial to see what you and TV advertising combined can do together,”
said our Managing Director, Jamie Stewart. If we saw growth, we’d give serious thought to bigger investment
very soon. Well we tripled catalogue requests over the 4-week period and had responses from Distributors of
amazing order values. And then - with sponsoring, during the 12-week period from September to end of
November - we saw a steep change in Distributor number growth.

So, to support your team building through 2010 we are investing heavily in TV advertising and branding, and
over the next 12 months we have over £2million worth of TV advertising planned. We will help you take this
life changing opportunity to more people than ever before.”

Mark and Alison Bird ran in
conjunction with our first radio advert
on Real Radio.

16 January 2010
The advert may have brought in
floods of leads, but not as many in
Ireland as we would have liked. So on
16 January, Jamie Stewart announced
that we were going to be running a
targeted campaign in the Republic of
Ireland throughout summer to test
the impact of TV advertising in the
country. With a dedicated Irish response number, we’re hoping for a great impact there too!

1 February 2010
“I think the TV ad was brilliant and we all think it should keep running all the time as much as possible. I have
so many people come up to me in the streets, or call asking for a catalogue. All the parents at my daughter’s
school have been asking, but also asking how to join. I have had so many leads from this advert; I wish it
could run all the time,” Tina and Paul Cole, Distributors.

This on the first week that our new recruitment advert ran! The Distributors who starred in the advert also
secured major press publicity for their roles, so it was a double-whammy for the brand.

                              “I have had yet another lead from the Kleeneze advertising campaign and this is
                              6 in total now. So far I have received £111.75 on just four catalogues. The other
                              books are due for collection soon. When I received the fourth lead I took the
                              pack of catalogues immediately to the house and as there was no one in, I just
                              pushed it through the door with a little note explaining who I was and why I
                              was calling. The house was in a street of what I can only describe as mansions
                              and I never even knew they existed.

                               When I collected the book the lady told me she was so impressed with the
                               Kleeneze service. She had requested a catalogue on the Sunday and the same
                               evening it was on her doormat. I received an order for £15.75, but she has
                               asked me to keep calling. I am planning to drop the whole street now. This just
                               goes to show that we should never pre-judge who will or who won’t be
interested in receiving our catalogues. Thanks Kleeneze!”

KLEENEZE SUPPORTS
LOCAL ECONOMY
As we limped out of one of the worst and longest
recessions the world has ever experienced, every
pound spent in the local economy became even more
important. In the last four years, we’ve all started to
have a renewed interest in, but with the collapse of
the global economy, this just skyrocketed.

Local economy means the people closest to you
geographically – nearby businesses, neighbours and
anyone else who contributes to the economy in a
neighbourhood. Supporting it means choosing your
local retailers over superstores for example.

For Kleeneze, this is a subject close to home. That is
why, earlier this year, we launched the Shop Local
campaign to show support for our Distributors and
their fellow small traders.

Small businesses and independent traders are the backbone of communities. They offer a friendly personal
service and, now more than ever, they need the support of their communities as they face increased competition
from high street giants and global brands.

Since the campaign launched, Distributors from all over the country have been the subject of media attention as
they campaign in their local areas for people to shop locally.

Why shop locally?

• It keeps money in the local economy – every £1 spent with a local supplier keeps £1.76 in the local economy
  (source: New Economics Foundation)

• Small businesses offer a personal service and extra care – local business owners know their customers and are
  able to offer a more personal service

• It maintains local character – supporting local businesses ensures their survival and maintains the local
  provision of services and character of local communities

• It’s better for the environment – shopping locally promotes fewer and shorter car journeys, plus local stores
  use less CO2 than superstores (sources: DEFRA, Sheffield Hallam University)

An incentive that was
Med to measure!
In October 2009, one lucky group of Distributors boarded flights that were to whisk them away for four days of
five-star luxury in Southern Cyprus. All their hard work and dedication over the previous six months had paid off
with resulting its in them qualifying for Kleeneze’s Autumn Destination 2009.
The group spent time in the beautiful, sunny town of Limassol with its base being the luxurious Le Meridien Spa
and Resort. Situated right on the beach, Distributors looked out of their hotel rooms to see miles of sandy
coastline and sparkling blue waters and had a choice of dipping into one of the many freshwater and seawater
pools peppered all around or popping into the spa for a pampering session.
Fine dining, plenty of wine and lavishness the likes of which you don’t experience every day was part of their
everyday routine. SEDs had an extra day in which to experience the Kleeneze way. Taking them off to board
three separate millionaires’ yachts, the leaders raced their way across the Med to a sumptuous
barbecue on the beach.
Later the same day, the rest of the group arrived in Cyprus and what followed
was a whirlwind of great times – from a fiesta in a traditional
Cypriot village and an afternoon of hilarity in the boat building
competition to a toga night at the breathtaking site of Aphrodite’s
Sanctuary and a conference of inspirational proportions.
The Autumn Destination 2009 was another huge success for
Kleeneze and with over half of the qualifiers new to the business,
proof that everyone really can succeed!

     “It was just an out-of-this-world experience. The fantastic thing is you get the
     chance to mix with leaders in the business and ask their advice and for tips on how
     they achieved what they achieved. We’re going to take away lots of pictures,
     souvenirs and amazing memories but, most importantly, priceless advice from
     leaders and some fantastic new friends!”

“The resort was spectacular, the excitement of being with all those other Kleeneze
people was overwhelming and the fact that we had to ’work’ on Monday morning
(conference day) just drove home how much we love our ’work’! We run our own
team camp every summer and have always wanted to do something like the boat
building - trust Kleeneze to pull that one off too! We were teamed up for the boat
building and the Gala Dinner evening with all first-time qualifiers, so to see the
conference from their perspective was very special, because even though we try and
tell people how fantastic the conferences are, you can’t really appreciate it until
you’ve experienced one!”

This has been by far the best Autumn Destination ever. For us, the boat building
was the best bit, because of the team spirit, plus it was just absolutely brilliant fun!

sure more of them are on the next one.”

afternoon and we were so amazed that we managed to sail our ’yacht’ all the way

were so many wow moments on this trip we couldn’t possibly pick out just one -
memories are a bonus that we can store and keep forever and boy do we have
some of those. Hong Kong is a must for all Distributors to work towards. I know we
definitely will be and we hope to see you all there.”

Mum’s the word
This year, the average cost of raising a child to the age
of 21 has crashed through the £200,000 barrier for the
very first time in history.

It’s not just the day-to-day running costs of the family
that can hurt either. With many people facing added
pressure to put in more time at work, those with
families are looking for other options that will allow
them to earn an income while also being there for their
little ones. Scheduling hours around school time, many
parents leave work altogether after having children
because of a lack of flexible working arrangements.
Those who continue, still have to shell out for the cost
of childcare and therein goes their income.

Gold Executive Distributor, Caroline Harris, went
from part-time Distributor to mother seamlessly
thanks to Kleeneze:

“Personally, I cannot think of any other job or business
that would allow me the opportunity to be a full-time
mum while at the same time earning a full-time
income.”

With four children, all under the age of 12, Silver
Distributor Vanessa Hodgkinson had her work cut
out. Thankfully, Kleeneze was there to help with
the costs of a family as well as giving her the
time to be there for her youngsters:

“I joined Kleeneze in October 2007 to earn a little extra
cash. Previously,, I had worked full-time in an accounts
department for over 12 years before starting a family. I
now have 4 children, all under 8 years old, of which the
youngest is 3 weeks old.

Seeing in the New Year
the Kleeneze way


One of the busiest large scale indoor venues in Europe will see the likes of the X-Factor, Stereophonics, Strictly
Come Dancing, Rod Stewart, the European Gymnastics Championships and Alicia Keys pass through its doors
over the next 12 months. However, to kick start the year, it was Kleeneze that took to the stage of
Birmingham’s National Indoor Arena.

Culminating in a sumptuous Gala Dinner, the day saw around 3,000 Distributors come together to launch
another successful year for the company, as well as celebrate the year just gone.

“There are more people than ever before looking for work and unemployment is forecast to rise still further,”
said Managing Director Jamie Stewart at the start of the event. “At this time of year many think about finally
clearing their credit card bills or for some it might be some extra money to
afford a little luxury in life. Whatever it is, we have the Kleeneze solution.

“2010 will be a year that changes people lives for good and for bad, let’s help
as many people as we can change their lives for the better. There’s a General
Election coming up this year and no doubt there will be some major changes in
tax and earnings that we can’t even imagine yet.

“2010 is set to be the year that the recession impacts people’s lifestyles. And
Kleeneze is set to shout to the world that we are ready to help everyone change
their lives for good.”

It wasn’t just Kleeneze Distributors that were shouting to the world either. Our
special guest speaker was Dragons’ Den panel member – James Caan. And
what a talk it was! His life story is actually not too dissimilar to those starting up

The Showcase was also vital for internal training. We’ve so
much going on this year – the qualification for Hong Kong, a
major advertising campaign and fresh new support for new
starters, so it was important that those who have already
had success in this business stepped up to give others help
and advice. Silver Senior Executive Distributor, Geoff
Webb; Bronze Executive Distributor, Debra Pusey;
Silver Executive Distributor, Dave Birtwistle; Gold
Distributor Sharon Allsop and Silver Principal
Executive Distributor, Bob Webb were our Network
speakers for the day on hand to give everyone some brilliant
tips on moving their businesses forward.
Of course, it wasn’t all about training, though. In the
evening, everyone donned their finery for a Gala Dinner of
luxurious proportions and partied long into the evening.
However, once all the wine had been supped and everyone’s
sore dancing feet were tucked up in bed, the Showcase
Organisers were at it again – this time getting ready to host
the Kleeneze Ireland New Year Showcase!
There was more training from the likes of newly-crowned
winner of the Distributor Challenge Trophy John Morgan;
the very inspirational Distributorship Peter and Jackie
White and testimonials from Laura Cleland and Ninan
Puliyayil Kuriakose; this time in Dublin.
Kleeneze Ireland has a completely different feel to the NIA
Showcase. The day was packed full of training and
recognition and a great deal of laughter and humour, as is
Birmingham, but it’s an entirely intimate, personal event.
Don’t take our word for it though! The Christmas Showcases
in Birmingham and Dublin will take place in September, so
come and see for yourself!

A REWARDING AND
AWARDING BUSINESS
You’ve worked hard at work for 12 solid months, put in hours above and beyond the call of duty, completed
those projects in record time and have basically had an exemplary year. So, how were you rewarded? A pat on
the back? A ‘well done’ and a firm handshake? Or simply more work thrown your way (hey, you’ve proved you
can do it, so here’s some more!).
Kleeneze prides itself on recognising its Distributors in a big way. Yes, there are holidays, cars and cash bonuses
to be won, but it’s also important for us to recognise our top performers in the Network on stage in front of
their team mates and peers. This is why, every year, Kleeneze holds its own awards ceremony




There are six main business awards presented by Kleeneze every January at the New Year Showcase. The
award winners accept their prize in front of thousands in the Network and often the awards come with their
own reward – this year, all of our winners have automatically won a trip to Hong Kong!
Designed to recognise exceptional effort in all areas of the business, there’s the VIP Trophy for consistency of
effort and outstanding personal retail sales; the Distributor Challenge Trophy and Harry Crook Trophy awarded
for outstanding business development; the Executive Distributor Challenge Cup and the SED Challenge Trophy
awarded for Outstanding Executive group sales and, of course, the Distributor of the Year Award - given, at
the company’s discretion, to the distributorship that has shown amazing ambition and dynamism.

JOHN MORGAN AND GILLY MCCRONE, DISTRIBUTOR CHALLENGE TROPHY




How has the first part of 2010 been treating you?
What a way to start 2010 by winning the Distributor Challenge Trophy and finding out we’re are going to
Hong Kong! And just this past week Vinny Tsoi and Lorraine Lawlor in our team have qualified for Cape
Town! So 2010 is going GREAT!! It’s a wonderful feeling to help someone in your team not only earn a
fantastic income, but to see that hard work rewarded also with a trip of a lifetime. There’s nothing else out
there that gives such a sense of pride.
As you’re a trophy winner, you automatically qualify for our next Destination. How did that feel?
We couldn’t believe it when the video of Hong Kong started playing at the New Year Showcase. We just kept
looking at each other whispering: ‘Wow! Are we going to Hong Kong?’
Was winning the Distributor Challenge Trophy a goal for you?
Yes it was a massive goal for us, one of many goals for 2009. We had a fantastic finish to 2008 and we kept
the momentum going into 2009. We knew if we continued to build our customer base, share the opportunity
with more people and help our team we would have a great chance to win.
And in qualifying for it, has it strengthened your business?
Absolutely. Our own customer base was pretty solid but we continued to find new customers ensuring we
had strong personal retail. It also fired up the team, it got everyone excited to know they could be part of a
winning team.
How do you think winning something like a trophy changes your business?
It will definitely help with sponsoring - it shows new prospects the massive rewards available to everyone in
Kleeneze and they will be part of a winning team. It has boosted morale in the whole ROCK team. It shows
that winning a trophy is achievable to anyone who is willing to work hard enough for it.




20
What did you have to do to qualify for it?
We had a great start to 2008 and knew if we continued as we started we would be in with a shout of
winning. We believe in leading by example, so we set a goal to do 18% personal retail per period. The more
we retailed, the more everyone in the team retailed. We continued to sponsor and started to run our own
sizzles to help new people get their businesses off to the best possible start.
What are your goals for this year?
Having goals is massively important to us - small goals as well as big ones. We want to continue to build our
team and help each person to achieve their goals. We recently sat down with some of our team and followed
Jim Rohn’s guide to setting goals. Something we would recommend to everyone. A huge goal is to help as
many of our team to join us in Hong Kong, and a Mini Cooper would also be nice!
Do you have any advice for anyone who wants that trophy in 2011?
Make a plan and take massive action. The saying goes: ‘Fail to plan, plan to fail.’ Follow the system and don’t
change it. You also need to work hard on your own personal development. We recommend reading many of
the books available; anything by Jim Rohn is a good start! Believe you can and keep rocking!


GEOFF AND FIONA WEBB, SED CHALLENGE CUP
So once again, you’ve snapped up the trophy. How do you keep up the consistency it obviously
takes to keep on qualifying for these things?
It’s all about the system. Personally for us, 2009 was a challenging year with family illness that necessitated us
taking quite a chunk of time out when Fiona’s mum (who lives over 200 miles away) was critically Ill. We’ve
always believed that there are two ways to build a successful networking business: Firstly to make yourself
pivotal to the organisation whereby it grows largely on your personal effort - and indeed it is possible to earn
huge incomes by doing this. The only problem is that when you stop, it all starts to fall away. So, we’ve opted
                                                                               for what we consider to be a
                                                                               much smarter business model,
                                                                               and that is to coach our amazing
                                                                               team with a simple, duplicatable
                                                                               system, that perpetuates even

in the following year another 30 runners broke that belief barrier, and the year after that, another 300!
Winning the trophy was down to the success within the team - record new Gold Distributors breaking, record
numbers attending the conference on board Club Med ll and again in Cyprus. All of this has combined to
help everyone in our team to believe that they too can achieve their own success within the group. Team
morale is at an all time high, and we are massively privileged that the team synergy is so strong - with
everyone wanting others to achieve - even cross line, and that’s very special!
2009 brought about a lot of new things for the company. Was there one thing that helped your
business more than anything else?
Most definitely the TV advertising - not just for the exposure of our brand, but even more so for the
confidence we’ve seen in the Network on the back of this. We’ve always believed in our opportunity and have
been proud of our business, but the power of the advertising has given everyone pride in this world class
opportunity, and that’s led to more lead generation activity, more people contacting their warm market with
confidence, and overall better conversion rates because Distributors feel altogether more confident about their
business.
Tell us about your goal setting
Goal setting has always been a very important subject for us - we believe passionately that if people don’t
have their own strong personal goals in place, then this will hamper their success. For us, our goals are very
personal. We believe in, and try to practise, Zig Zigler’s wisdom: ’Help enough people achieve their goals, and
you will achieve yours’.
To be honest, we live our ultimate goal now, on a daily basis - we choose when we work, we report to no
one, we have a business that feels like our favourite hobby which we can do 24/7 if we choose, and we have
a quality of life that is second to none. Of course, to everyone we teach the importance of smaller goals - we
understand that for someone earning a relatively small amount now, it can seem very difficult to focus on a
£1m house or a £50k car. In our early days we realised the importance of achieving smaller goals - an extra
£15 a week paid for us to send our ironing out! Smaller goals are key to achieving your larger goals -
remember, we only joined to earn an extra £100 per month so we could treat ourselves to a steak and bottle
of red wine at our favourite restaurant a couple of times a month! There is however, one goal that I, (Geoff)
will never achieve though, and that is earning more in a month, than Fiona can spend!


KIMBERLEY SUNTER, HARRY CROOK TROPHY
Tell us about your journey to winning the Harry Crook Trophy
Around October of last year, I got a text message from my Upline, James O’Neil, saying ‘do you realise that
you’re third place on the Harry Crook Trophy table? To be honest with you, I’ve never really won anything –
even a trophy at school – so when I was told I had a good chance of getting this, it really made me think
‘right, what do I have to do?’
Did you face any challenges on your journey?
As soon as I knew I was in with a chance, I decided to do more than ever. However, as life is, things happen
when you really don’t want them to happen! The snow was a problem, schools were shut so my routine was
out the window and I had car trouble! However, I wanted that trophy so I just kept at it and focussing.

                                                                                   that something like this

How have things been going since you won the Trophy?
This year has been good so far. The new book certainly picked up for me at the beginning of the year, which
was good. And I’m excited about Hong Kong. Now I just need to make some money before I go, as I’ve
already made quite a long shopping list!
The team’s morale has been raised since I came back with the Trophy. It’s definitely strengthened my belief in
the business and I know it has helped me as a marketing tool, as well. I signed somebody last week and it
was because I was telling him about the trophy and Hong Kong. There was a £50 joining offer at the time
and he took advantage of it straight away. I do believe by winning the trophy and being fired up about it,
people sign up. Now I can tell them that I am going on one of these incentives. It gives it more clout that I’m
going on a Destination rather than just telling them that other people are!
What are your goals for the coming year now?
Before Kleeneze, I was a student. I was a single parent and doing my A-levels and accountancy. My mum
joined Kleeneze and when she told me about it, I thought ok I’ll give it a go. I only really did it for something
to do though, as I was going to go to university. I never really took Kleeneze seriously – it was just a bit of
extra money. In the last 12 months, though, I’ve seen the bigger picture and really decided to get on with it.
I’m now so excited and I know that this year is going to be better than even last year!
By the end of the year, I want to get to Bronze, get some more team members in and stabilise my business.
I’m definitely not going to go to Hong Kong on my own either! The whole team is fired up to get on the
Destination so I’m taking them with me!

                                 Are you enjoying 2010 so far?
                                 Like everyone else, we had the snow and ice to contend with at
                                 the beginning of the year, so we’re playing a little catch up
                                 now. We’ve been working really hard for our Period 2 turnover
                                 to exceed our Period 12 turnover. Rob Forster once said if you
                                 achieve that you’ll have a great year and that’s what we want.
                                            You had a fantastic year in 2009. Was a trophy win part
                                            of your plan?
                                            It wasn’t a goal right in January, but it became one in March.
                                            We were working hard anyway and when we saw that we
                                            were on the list, it did encourage us. We worked hard to
                                            achieve it. Did more activity and helped the team.
I couldn’t believe that we’d qualified for Hong Kong too. We were blown away by it. Now we’ve got
more time to spend helping our team get to Hong Kong too. We’ve got definitely 8, maybe 11
Distributorships who are actively going for Hong Kong. Everyone’s so excited about it. We’re having a
sizzle on Sunday and ordering in Chinese food to get in the spirit of things!
How has winning the trophy affected your business so far?
When you win a trophy, it’s a fantastic motivator for you and the team. It gives you the belief that you
can achieve anything. Team morale’s very high because of it.
It definitely motivates others too. When I go to see people now, I tell them that the team has won this
trophy this year and if they do decide to join they’ll be in a great team. From that point of view, it really
has helped.
Last year you climbed the sales plan, qualified for Cyprus and won a Mini. Now you have the
trophy and Hong Kong too. What’s the secret?
At the moment, looking at my screen, I have a picture of Hong Kong there. When we were going for the
Mini, we had pictures of the Mini and we put Cyprus up too. You think about it every single day when
you get up. We have a plan and strategy in place and then we just get out there and do it.
It wasn’t always a story of success for you was it?
We’ve been in Kleeneze for 11 years now. We did really well at the beginning and then just slowed down.
I think sometimes you talk about it more than actually doing anything. I always thought that we were
doing Kleeneze, but really we weren’t doing it as much as we should have been.
The turning point for me was when my sisters died. One had a long-term illness and the other died very
suddenly. I started questioning myself and what life was all about. I thought right I’m not going to play
about with this business anymore. I needed to move it on so I focused and pushed for it – I did what it
takes. You can get diverted by things and go off on a tangent sometimes, but I really concentrated on the
elements – retailing, sponsoring and teaching others to do the same. I sat down, started talking to the
team finding out what they wanted to do. Then we just went for it.
We’ve got big goals for 2010 too now. We want to be Bronze SED by the end of the year and the BMW
as well. That’s our plan.

DISTRIBUTOR OF THE YEAR –
GAVIN SCOTT AND BONNIE ARAPES




The Distributor of the Year award - given at the company’s discretion to the distributorship that has shown
amazing ambition and dynamism – is the most coveted Kleeneze award there is. And, over the years, one
name has become synonymous with ambition, dynamism and Kleeneze – that of Gavin Scott.
An incredible rags-to-riches story, Gavin left school with just a few basic qualifications and with no definitive
career plan, following in his father’s footsteps into the Tyneside shipyards. Nine years later, he was still there –
however, he yearned for something better. Something better eventually came along, in the form of a Kleeneze
information pack.
That pack intrigued Gavin enough to start a part-time business with Kleeneze in September 1992. He went on
to create a Kleeneze business with a multi-million pound turnover. Gavin and his partner Bonnie Arapes have
also qualified for conferences to Australia, Arizona, Malta, Monte Carlo, Bangkok, Bali and Florida – to name
but a few, along the way.
In 1994, this huge success in the business meant that Gavin was made Distributor of the Year award. Over 15
years later and his business continues to be an inspiration to all. Towards the end of last year, this
Distributorship flew a whopping four levels up the Sales Plan, collecting a Period 12 cheque in excess of
£43,000 – that’s for only four weeks’ work!
Last year’s success along with their continued dedication to Kleeneze meant that the Distributor
of the Year award once more went to Gavin Scott and Bonnie Arapes!

It’s been 15 years since you last won the
Distributor of the Year award. What changes
have you seen since then?
Well, I didn’t have a mobile phone then, there was
no Internet, no voicemail and no technology really.
That’s changed massively. It makes an enormous
difference, because you have so much access to get
in touch with so many people and help them. In the
beginning, you couldn’t do that. When I first started,
I’d do a monthly newsletter and post it out and it
used to take forever to get to them. It’s dead easy
now!

You’re often quoted as being someone who
has been instrumental in the growth of
Kleeneze. What’s your perception of that
statement?

A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEBT
If the last 12 months have taught us anything, it’s that the ‘buy
now and pay later’ culture was a time bomb just waiting to
explode. Over the past year, personal debt statistics have been at
the forefront of the media like never before, and with good
reason. Personal debt in the UK is now at crisis level and tales of
home repossessions and bankruptcies are now commonplace.

So, lesson learnt, right? Wrong. The recession has done nothing
to stop lending or borrowing rates rising and at the end of
2008, figures showed that UK lenders were handing out
£175million to borrowers EVERY DAY. At the same time,
unemployment continues to rise well into 2010 with
approximately 1,522 people per day losing their jobs.

If you thought the end of the recession was a light in the tunnel
when it comes to debt matters, think again. Many experts are
predicting that personal debt in the UK is only going to go one
way in 2010 – up.

So, if you are in the position of living from paycheque to
paycheque, worrying how you’re going to pay off your
Christmas credit cards, at least you’re not alone! However, a
debt-free life can give you immense financial and personal relief,
so make it your resolution for 2010 to ditch the debts by
following a few simple steps:

1.    Acknowledge your debts
      A whopping one in five adults are lying to their partners about the amount of debt they have. It’s time to
      take a realistic look at your situation.

2.    Stop digging
      The hole you’ve dug yourself isn’t going to get any smaller if you keep digging! Cut up those credit cards
      and stop any non-essential spending. We’re sure you can go without that daily cappuccino.

3.    List your income and outgoings
      Sit down and make a realistic budget plan. Monthly bills, one-off car expenses, average supermarket bills –
      include them all. This will not only show you how much you have left over to pay off debt, but will also
      highlight where you can cut back.

4.    Maximise your income
      If there’s nothing you can feasibly cut back on, you could consider getting a second job to supplement your
      income. Kleeneze is ideal, as you can do it whenever you want and for however much money you need

28
5.    Prioritise your debt
      You now need to work what to pay to whom. Start by
      making regular payments to your creditors (even if it’s
      only a very small amount). Your priority debts are the ones
      that have the harshest consequences should you not pay
      them (mortgage, Council tax, utility bills etc).

6.    Start a debt snowball
      List your debts in order (from smallest to largest). Now
      determine how much extra can be applied towards the
      smallest debt. Pay the minimum payment plus the extra
      amount towards that smallest debt until it is paid off.
      Once that debt is paid in full, add the old minimum
      payment (plus any extra amount available) from the first
      debt to the minimum payment on the second smallest
      debt, and apply the new sum to repaying the second
      smallest debt. Then repeat!



“We joined Kleeneze three years ago and at that time we were like a lot of other families - we owned our own
house, had 3 children, Darren had a full time job and I had a part-time job. We had enough money to be able to
have a treat once a week and be able to let the kids have their hobbies and could afford all our bills quite
comfortably.

Then unfortunately Darren lost his Nana to cancer and exactly one year after, his Granddad passed away, Darren
was very close to them, so as you can imagine he was devastated.

After sorting everything out we were given the chance to buy their house, which was like a dream to Darren for
the memories. At the time we were expecting our fourth child, so it was also good as the house was a lot bigger
than the one we were living in at that time.

Once we had moved in we decided to do it up to how we wanted it and because it was an old house there was
quite a bit of repair work needed. So we started to pay out for the house to be rewired, damp proofed etc and
before we knew it we had spent all our money. As we were only halfway through doing it up we naturally wanted
                                                    to finish it, so we decided to borrow the rest. It was so easy to
                                                    borrow and they kept on offering us more!

                                                     Then things started to go downhill. The house was finished -
                                                     fantastic! But Darren had his hours cut at work and his boss
                                                     started to take him for granted, putting more and more
                                                     responsibilities on him.

                                                     As we had a bigger mortgage, by the time we had completed
                                                     the house we knew there was only one option - I had to find
                                                     another job, so I started to look in the local paper on job
                                                     night.

                                                     I found this ’catalogue job’ advertised and made an
                                                     appointment to meet someone. Darren came with me as I was

                                                                                                                 29

quite nervous. When we were told it was Kleeneze I thought ‘Get me out of here! I’ve heard of that rubbish!’

But as we had paid £4 for the car park we listened to what they had to say. They must have done a good job
because the next day we signed up!

Unfortunately our debt was so severe by this time we had started to use credit cards to pay our bills - it was a
vicious circle.

Soon afterwards, we lost our house and found ourselves in rented accommodation waiting to be housed in a
council house. We messed about with Kleeneze for a good year, then one day we both decided enough is
enough. We have our own business; it’s time to take it seriously.

By the end of the year Darren was earning more from our Kleeneze business than in his job and sacked his boss!
We now work our Kleeneze business full time and take it very seriously and the best bit? WE LOVE IT!!

We can now see the light at the end of the tunnel, Darren is happier than he has been for years and our business
is growing all the time. Although we still have debt, thanks to Kleeneze, we have it under control. We are no
longer looking to move into a council house, as we love the house we’re renting now and are hoping to buy it
one day! We know that with the way we are working our business it won’t be long before we are totally out of
debt and having whatever we want.

From Darren and my points of view, not only are we clawing our way out of debt but we have got our sanity
back because we are involved with some fantastic positive people! Again we would like to say ‘Thank you
Kleeneze’ for helping us to get our lives back on track, what an amazing opportunity we have!”

”Prior to joining Kleeneze, Myrna and I purchased an
Australian ’Fast food’ Coffee and Donut franchise at
a cost of £108,000. Training took place for six weeks
at a place called Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast
in Queensland, Australia. That was a tremendous
experience, but unfortunately from thereon it was
downhill.

The franchisors (a £100m company) promised a
blaze of publicity at our grand opening as we were
to be the first store in the northern hemisphere, and
Ralph Harris was going to cut the ribbon. We were
elated, until nearer the time came to our ’Grand
Opening’ when we were informed that on the big
day we were to be given some balloons to inflate
ourselves and give out to passing children!

                                           We worked from 5am most mornings until past 7pm each evening for
                                           little or no wages as our thirteen staff members took priority in the
                                           queue at the end of the week. Although we were experiencing a

                                           reluctant bank. After two years on this slippery slope we sold the
                                           business to the franchisors ’for a song’, and even then it was a further
                                           three years before they paid us, by which time it had no value, as the
                                           bank snapped it up. After the sale of the business we were left with a
                                           heavily mortgaged home and a huge bank loan which we’d used to
                                           keep the business afloat, and our situation was desperate.

                                           It was at this point that we began frantically scouring the newspapers
                                           for gainful employment and fortunately stumbled across Kleeneze. We
                                           immediately saw the potential with Kleeneze as a viable if not
                                           incredible business opportunity and threw ourselves into it.

                                            With Kleeneze our income has steadily increased over the years which
                                            has enabled us to pay off our debts, and has even allowed us to retire
from the ’rat race’. After researching hundreds of conventional businesses and other income opportunities we
know that the only opportunity that has a guaranteed direct effort and commitment related success formula is
Kleeneze. We would no doubt have lost everything had it not been for this amazing company.“

The adventure of a lifetime


At the beginning of 2009, Kleeneze announced that it would be taking its qualifying Distributors on the trip
of a lifetime. To reward them for months of hard work, they were to spend five nights lapping up the sun in
one of the most dramatic and inspiring Destinations in Kleeneze history – the thrilling city of Cape Town!
As this magazine went to print, over 130 Distributors were settling into revel in the five-star luxury of the Table
Bay Hotel with stunning views of the city. They’ll be looking forward to a whirlwind week of fine dining, fine
company and being royally spoilt by Kleeneze! Here are some of the things they’ll be getting up to:
•   Making the ascent in rotating gondolas to the top of the magnificent, famed Table Mountain where
    they’ll toast their success at an exclusive drinks reception
•   Feasting in some of the most famous restaurants in the city and experiencing traditional African dining.
•   Touring the countryside of the historic Cape Winelands and picnicking at one of South Africa’s most
    famous wineries
•   Experiencing a thrilling jet boat ride towards Cape Point, spotting whales, seals, sharks, dolphins and sea
    birds
•   Taking a trip up to the Cape Point lighthouse for a spectacular view of the peninsula
•   Visiting Boulders Beach, home to a colony of some 300 penguins!
Plus, they’ll also have an opportunity to wander around in their own time, booking some extra excursions,
such as a trip out to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned or, for the more adventurous,
some shark cage diving!
In a new twist, we had two parts in our qualification criteria this year, the second part being a competition in
which it was anyone’s game! One of our first qualifiers through was:
Bronze Executive Distributor, Ivan Darch.
“It’s fantastic,” Ivan admitted, when asked how he felt about achieving qualification for Cape Town. “Kleeneze
Destinations are pretty awesome events and you don’t want to miss them if you can help it! I’ve been to
Vienna and Cannes with Kleeneze before, so I know what these experiences are like.

                                                         I always put Kleeneze down to work ethic. Most days of the
                                                         week, I’m up at 5 or 6 in the morning and working until
                                                         11pm or midnight! Even when I started, I retailed with all the
                                                         spare time I had. I earned £871 in my first month with
                                                         Kleeneze and that was just four hours a day retailing. You only
                                                         ever get out what you put in with this business. You just need
                                                         to strive and do more than you think you can.”
                                                         Then on Monday 8 February, Distributors throughout the
                                                         Network were to be found in a state of frenzy. Some were
                                                         crying, others screaming, a few even shaking. Such was the
                                                         reaction to a phone call from Head of Network Development,
                                                         Michael Khatkar. Of course, it wasn’t any old phone call that
                                                         brought these Distributors to their knees. Michael was calling
                                                         to let them know that he could happily confirm their
                                                         qualification for the Spring Destination 2010 – Cape Town!
                                                         For the past five months, the Distributors had been battling it
                                                         out in the Cape Town competition. Many upped their retailing
                                                         drastically; held meetings geared towards the Destination and
                                                         basically pulled out all the stops to ensure they were part of
                                                         the Great Kleeneze Destination. And it worked!
                                                         “I wasn’t really sure if I was going to laugh, cry or my heart
                                                         was going to jump about of my body when I heard. I was just
                                                         so excited. In fact, I’m still shaking a bit now! I’m over the
                                                         moon,” said Gold Distributor, John McNally.
                                                “It has been a huge effort, but, without a shadow of a doubt,
                                                it was a team effort. Going out over the last few months with
the snow and this bad weather! If it wasn’t for the team, there’s no doubt about it that myself and Lesley
wouldn’t be going to South Africa in three weeks’ time. I can assure you that these team members will be
rewarded in future, hopefully by getting to Hong Kong”!

THE GREAT SPRING KLEEN
The nights are getting lighter, the flowers have started to
bloom and we’re treated to the sun peaking through our
curtains. But what’s this?! With sun comes all sorts of
other problems – such as its canny ability to highlight all
the cobwebs, dust, film and all the other unmentionable
debris a Christmas of good content has left in its wake.
Springtime is all about renewal and regeneration and
spring cleaning is all part of that process. Before you shut
this magazine with a large groan and close your curtains
again, though, we have some helpful hints and products
that can make your yearly decontamination process a
doddle.

TIPS FOR A HAPPY AND HARMONIOUS SPRING CLEAN
1. Get all your cleaning supplies together first
2. Pick a day and time to do your spring cleaning and don’t deviate from it
3. Tackle only one room at a time – don’t take on too much or the temptation to give up will be too strong
4. Delegate! Make sure your family or others in your household pitch in
5. Turn up the music – from Britney to Beethoven, a little bit of music can make the task much
   more enjoyable



TACKLING ONE ROOM AT A TIME
THE KITCHEN             It’s probably the most frequented room in the house and to
                                                reward us for our loyalty to this particular room, it’s the least
                                                fun to clean.

                                                Stove
                                                This is a particularly nasty job and, unlike the oven where the
                                                grease can be hidden simply by shutting the door (we don’t do
                                                that, honest), your hob is on display to anyone who chooses to
                                                enter your kitchen. Using the Ceramic Hob Cleaner means that
                                                you never again need be ashamed of your stove.

                                                Told you we don’t ignore this, but it is possibly our most-hated
                                                job. This is why we love Oven Mate. Paint it on, leave it, wipe it
                                                off. Job done. Possibly the best mate we’ve ever had

A COMPANY CAR FOR LIFE!
A common rite of passage into middle management is getting the keys to a shiny new motor. It’s a nice
reward scheme, which is seen by many as a status symbol. However, is the traditional company car all it’s
cracked up to be?

Let’s see: it doesn’t really belong to you, it doesn’t increase your wage, you rarely get an upgraded car as you
climb further up the career ladder, often it is only yourself who is allowed to drive the car and there are
occasionally even restrictions on whether it’s available for private use.

Kleeneze’s car scheme is something completely different. There is a range of cars available at all stages of your
journey in your business plus these are yours to keep for life! Put your business into gear and you can drive off
with one of the four brand new Mini Coopers we award every year! We’ve also upgraded our car awards to
include some of the most prestigious models available.

One Distributorship more than most, has
the beginnings of a fleet of cars under its
belt! East-Sussex based Richard and Clare
Chantler have qualified for two Mini
Coopers and won a Corsa in the past 18
months. In their eyes, though, this is just
the start.

“We planned for the first Mini and we
planned for the second Mini,” explains
Richard. “The Corsa, I knew we had a
chance of winning it so again it was just
holding the position for a certain amount
of periods. My overall goal now is to win
four Minis throughout my Kleeneze career
and that’s quite achievable. I’d love for
some of the team to win some of the cars too.”

Richard and Clare have been soaring up the Sales Plan over the last couple of years and are a part of a wave
of Distributorships who are truly making their mark in the Network. Having joined Kleeneze in 2003, it wasn’t
all plain sailing, but hard work has proved very worth it.”

“About 2 and a-half years ago I went to a meeting at which Gold Senior Executive Distributor Dave
Pemberton-Smith spoke about volumes of activity and productivity,” remembers Richard. “That really triggered
it for me and we started to do huge amounts of work immediately. We really started to take massive action
and from two-and-a-half solid years of hard work, our business has grown really quickly.


                                                                                                             39

                                        “Now I do more than I’ve ever done,” he adds. “But that’s because I
                                        want to drive the business quicker than I’ve done before. I want to
                                        have a Premier business.”

                                        As Richard admits, hard work really is the key. However, it’s also
                                        important to have a goal in mind.

                                        “You have your goal and then you set your plan for it and work it
                                        daily,” he explains. “It’s that easy. If you don’t work your daily plan
                                        consistently, it’s not going to work.”

                                        As with any incentive in this business, winning it affects the whole of
                                        the team. It’s a joint effort by every team member that helps a
                                        Distributor get anywhere up the Sales Plan and Richard and Clare are
                                        equally determined that their team achieves the same success that they
                                        have.

                                       “What happens is that it generates excitement within the group itself,”
                                       says Richard on winning the cars. “We’ve got other people now who
want to win a Mini as well. That helps with strengthening the business as well.

“We let people develop at their own pace, but if someone starts to develop quickly we’ll single them out and
work with them directly. You can tell by the volume of work they’re doing. By their actions – the amount of
retail they’re doing, the amount of people they’re bringing into the business, the amount of meetings they’re
attending. If they’re consistently doing these actions, then they’re the sort of person you want to work with to
move the business forward. I know then, once you’ve worked with them, that their business is going to be
sustainable. They’re doing all the right things.”

Of course, all work and no play would make for a very dull Distributor and Clare is quick to add that a car is
not the best bit of the business.

“These incentives are amazing,” she admits. “And
they’re on offer to be taken – so everyone should just
go for them! For our team, I think to have us qualify
brings the incentives closer to home and helps them
believe that they can and will qualify for them as well.
I have to say, though, the best thing about this whole
business are these life-long friendships you develop.
You realise that after coming back from a conference
where you get to talk to people throughout the
Network that you wouldn’t have the chance to
usually. We could never leave this business – if only
for the social side of it!”

Kleeneze’s new website launched
Last year was huge for the Kleeneze brand.
In a bid to provide a solution to the
thousands that were made redundant in the
recession and thousands more who are
unhappy with their jobs and their income,
Kleeneze went to the masses in the form of
advertising. However, with millions now open
to the Kleeneze opportunity, it was important
that the face of the company was the best
too. This was why, last year, we launched our
brand new website.

Kleeneze launched its new corporate website
to reflect its growing vision as a solution to
growing insecurity in the job market, part-
time opportunities and a way of earning an
extra income.

The website, www.kleeneze.co.uk, was
treated to a complete design and layout
revamp, featuring new content along with
enhanced navigation and usability.


The Range
Kleeneze.co.uk shows our potential
customers the vast range of Kleeneze
catalogues that are out there. You can even
view the catalogues online to give you a
taster of what could be delivered direct to
your door.

there to ensure that our Distributors have the best possible
company-facing website and thus continue to grow their

The future’s bright?



Let’s face it, we’ve all been living in a spend-now-pay-later culture and now we have a whopping great
financial hangover to deal with. And on top of that painful worry come pensions. The majority of us have
made no pension provisions at all and the downside of living longer and healthier lives is that the state
pension is becoming increasingly, well, paltry.

Before you put your blinkers back on and cry ‘I’ve ages yet’, take a look at Britain’s current situation. One in
three pensioners is living in poverty. And that was the generation that had some savings!

Record fuel, food and council bills means that the elderly have been hit harder than ever, many of them
having to cut back on essential household items. Higher prices for household goods and services and
recreational activities means that while a typical family is facing an annual increase in living costs of 1.85%,
pensioners of between 65 and 74 years old are having to manage a rise of 1.89% in their day-to-day
expenditure and older pensioners with a 1.53% hike.

For many, financial necessity deems that they continue working past the state pension age, however, currently
an employer can legally sack a worker when they reach 65. Then there’s the question of those who have no
pension provision, having spend most of their lives bringing up children.

Now, with two-thirds of full-time workers having no pension, the state pension is to increase from 65 years of
age to 66 in 2024, 67 in 2034 and 68 in 2044. Is this enough, though?

                                     “I’ve been self-employed since 1970 and had all sorts of businesses,” says
                                     Silver Premier Executive Distributor, John Hawkes. “In the 1980s, I
                                     had a hotel and towards the end of that decade, I sold it to invest the
                                     money in buy-to-let properties.”

                                     It was these buy-to-let properties that John hoped would provide him
                                     with a reasonable pension. However, come 16 September 1992,
                                     Chancellor Norman Lamont raised the interest rates in an attempt to prop
                                     up the then-failing pound. The result of that day was that many were to
                                     see their mortgages sky-rocket.

                                    “I was playing golf that day,” remembers John of ‘Black Wednesday’. “The
                                    interest rate when I set off was 6%. I played the first 18 holes, came in at
                                    lunchtime and the interest rate was 9%. I went out for the second 18
                                    holes and by the time we’d finished, the interest rate was 16%. All my
                                    properties were mortgaged and it was the rent that was paying for them.
Those interest rises meant I was about £1,000 a month short on the mortgages.”

So John started to look around to find something to help him supplement the mortgages. What he found
was Network Marketing.

“My aim was just to earn £1,000 a month to square the mortgages,” he explains. “After nine months, I hit
Gold and that was the £1,000 a month I needed. After 14 months, I hit Bronze Executive level and remained
there for 20 Periods - my group turnover was £20,000 per Period, but I wasn’t moving! My Upline, Bob
Webb, said ‘keep doing what you’re doing, because it’s right and soon it will start to go up.’ He was right. A
month later it really started taking off.”

John hasn’t looked back since then. Thanks to Kleeneze, he’s travelled around the world, amassed a sizeable
income and has a retirement many would envy.

“I was 58-years-old when I started with Kleeneze and I’m 75 now. In the 10 years I’ve been of pensionable
age, my pension from the State has been around £32,000 (I don’t have a full stamp, as I spent time overseas).
That’s about £3,000 a year. I can earn that with Kleeneze in 2-and-a-half months!”

In John’s 10 pension-entitled years, he’s earned well over £1,000,000 with Kleeneze. Consistently, for the past
five years, his yearly cheque has been over £140,000.

“I probably could have lived off the State pension, but certainly not to any standard I would have liked,” he
admits. “In the time I’ve been with Kleeneze, I’ve helped other pensioners do incredible things as well. I’ve a
lady in my team, who’s about my age. When she joined, she was living in one rented room. Shortly
afterwards, she bought a freehold of a warden-controlled flat. She paid about £45,000 and it’s now worth
£130,000 – Kleeneze has paid the mortgage off on it for her.

“When I come across someone who is in their 50s or older, I really start to make the point about pensions –
quite forcibly really – because you never know what’s coming. It’s such a powerful thing that we have here.”

Objection, objection!



Every day, thousands of people achieve success with Kleeneze. Equally, though, thousands turn it down for
one reason or another. Gold Distributor, Vinny Tsoi from Dublin took some convincing before he turned to
Kleeneze, but now he’s more than glad he did.

“I had never heard of Kleeneze before,” he admitted. “I was working with John Morgan (now my sponsor) as
an engineer on a site together. I was essentially his boss, but at the end of the month he was basically coming
out with the same money as me, because he was doing Kleeneze.

John told me about Kleeneze now and again, but I thought it wasn’t for me at all. I didn’t want to do it
mainly because I thought it involved knocking on doors and selling. I also didn’t think it would work in my
area either. Where I live, I really didn’t think anyone would buy from the catalogue.

Then we were both let go from the job we were working at. John turned to doing Kleeneze full-time, but I
stayed unemployed for about 6 months. I started toying with the idea of Kleeneze, as John was still doing it
and I thought for an extra hundred pounds a week it might be ok. The thing that really changed my mind,
though, was when John told me that it wasn’t selling at all, you just drop the catalogues off and collect them
and the orders are there. Lorraine, my girlfriend said, why don’t you just try it – you’ve nothing to lose. If you
don’t like it, you can leave.

In my first 2 weeks in the business I earned €738.92. Since then I’ve consistently stuck to a retailing plan and
I’ve built a fantastic customer base. My girlfriend went on to join me on the distributorship.

I come across the same objections now when I’m sponsoring people. I tell people that I felt the same way and
the last thing I wanted to do is sell things at people’s doors, but I know the business is actually not that. It’s
probably one of the main objections I come across.”

Vinny’s story is not uncommon, so we looked into the main reasons people give in turning this fantastic
opportunity down and why they should think again:

Isn’t Network Marketing the same as pyramid selling?
Absolutely not! Kleeneze, together with the Direct Selling Association was instrumental in outlawing these
scams. Pyramid schemes involve the exchange of money primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme,
often without any product or service being delivered. Kleeneze, on the other hand, has been offering this
opportunity since 1970 and has a very well deserved reputation for being one of the most ethical companies
in the industry.

I’ve heard Kleeneze doesn’t work
Kleeneze isn’t a get-rich-quick scheme. You do have to put the time and effort into it. Kleeneze works, it’s
people that don’t. We have some distributors who have been with the business for over 50 years!

It’s too expensive to start
According to the British Franchise Association, the average cost of setting your own business up is
£42,200 (a figure that includes fees, working capital, equipment and fittings, stock and materials). And then
you could look forward to many years of non-profit before your business gets anywhere.

Kleeneze only costs between £75 - £165 (€110 - €248) to set up and rather than wait six months to two
years before you yield a profit, you can reap the cash rewards straight away with no overheads, stock holding
or staff costs.

I can’t, I’m on benefits
Kleeneze is a great way to help you get out of the benefits trap
and start to better for yourself and your family. The support and
encouragement you receive every step of the way will help you
to move on to make a great income and have the life you
deserve.

I’ve already got three Distributors on my street
And you probably have three very successful supermarkets in
your area too! We find that not everyone buys from the same
Distributor and so several can operate in the same area and
quite happily make a profit.

Isn’t it time you
got a life?
Finding the perfect work/life balance in today’s fast-paced world is no easy quest. If your day starts with a
mad dash to drop the kids off at school, sandwiched by picking up little Maisie’s prescription at lunchtime
before grabbing a quick bite at your desk and culminates with dragging your moping moggy to the vets
before getting home to a pile of washing, a hungry family and the thought of doing it all again tomorrow,
you’re not alone. However, a recent study has proved that it’s more than your mental health you’re hurting by
living a frazzled existence.

Researchers for the Cochrane Libraryin Oxford have found that people who can choose their own working
hours could have lower blood pressure and healthier heart rates. And, confirming what we already suspected,
the review of 10 studies of more than 16,000 people said that having control of your working hours might
also have a positive impact on mental health.

Researchers at the Cochrane Library - an organisation in Oxford which looks at published studies - found the
key was workers, rather than employers, having control over their hours.

“I joined Kleeneze back in 2002, following a nervous breakdown, having been on long term sick from my
employment as a social worker for 18 months,” said Lyn Davies from Hull.

“During this period I had been unable to go outside unaccompanied, so for me Kleeneze was very
therapeutic. It gave me focus and a
reason to leave the house, despite
the initial trepidation I actually found
delivering my catalogues quite
liberating. It wasn’t long before I
regained my confidence and was
able to face the world again, thanks
to the brilliant support network and
wonderful customers I had made in
a very short period of time.

The contrast between the corporate
world and Kleeneze was vast; in
social work the only recognition you
receive is when something goes

wrong, so it was with great surprise that I received constant praise for my efforts, certificates, badges,
increased income and team support, on reaching milestones in the business.”

The Federation of Small Businesses said many small firms offered flexible working but working from home did
not suit industries such as retail or construction. Plus, office workers who are given the chance to work from
home and choose their own hours believe that their bosses are sceptical about whether people are really
working if they aren’t in the office.

The study comes at a time that the recession has forced companies to re-think traditional nine-to-five roles,
but how easy is it to get a job with flexible working hours?

“I was one of those people many Distributors
wouldn’t think to approach as a prospect,” says
Jamie Cook, a Silver Distributor from
Somerset. “I had a well-paid job, didn’t need any
extra money and, on the outside, it appeared that
Kleeneze wouldn’t have anything to offer me.
However, it also left me very little time to indulge in
my hobby of photography.

In May 2008 I met Heather who had been doing
Kleeneze for about 18 months on a part-time basis.
I was struck by the lifestyle it afforded her. It
seemed every time I rang her from my office she
would be relaxing in the local coffee bar, her work
completed for the day. It got me thinking – ‘Why am I stuck in an office working for somebody else when I
could be out working for myself?’ Heather and I discussed our options and decided that by making Kleeneze
our priority we could afford for me to quit my job, which I did in March 2009.

The benefits have been wonderful. Prior to Kleeneze I suffered from sciatica, high blood pressure and was
seriously overweight. Now I am pain free, I’ve lost 3 stone in weight and my blood pressure is back to normal.
I’ve also been able to focus on my photography more and in September 2009 won my first award in a local
competition.

One of our goals when I left full-time employment was to replace my income within 2 years and we are well
on our way to achieving this, and hoping to qualify for Hong Kong! Now I get to sit in the coffee bar, albeit
meeting prospective distributors. Certainly beats the office job!”

With more people working longer hours than ever, toiling hard to ward off unemployment, meet childcare
costs and simply affording to live, a satisfying work/life balance is for many seemingly impossible. But, as Jamie
learnt, there is another way.

How to market your Kleeneze
business with
Kleeneze’s PR agency, Citypress, gives you the inside scoop on PR and the best way to market your business.

What is PR?
Citypress is a leading PR agency based in Manchester. We’ve been working with Kleeneze since June this year,
and it’s our job to spread the word about what a fantastic opportunity the company offers by securing as
much coverage of the business in the media as we can.

We do this in a variety of ways, but our main method is by issuing press releases to the media. PR differs from
advertising in that we don’t pay newspapers or websites to use our stories; instead, we strive to make our
press releases as interesting and topical as possible so that the media will choose to run them.

The media always wants stories with an ‘angle’ that will provoke public interest. To provide them with this, we
endeavour to put together press releases that highlight the ‘Kleeneze solution’ as a way to tackle topical
problems such as the recession and graduate unemployment.

The topic of each press release we put together is discussed and debated in detail with the team at Kleeneze
before we proceed with putting together the story, which we then issue to the media.
We usually approach both national and regional media with the press release, tweaking the release a little for
each area of the country by including regional statistics and/ or a case study example (i.e. a Kleeneze
distributor who works in that area and who we can relate to the story) to make it more relevant for each
individual media outlet.

How Citypress is working for you
We’re always looking for Kleeneze Distributors who are willing to be used as case study examples in our press
releases.
If you’d like to be considered, then please register on our database at www.citypress.co.uk/kleeneze.
There, you’ll be asked to fill in various details about yourself and your time with Kleeneze so that we have all
of your information on file.

We’re able to search this database for suitable case study candidates each time we draft a release. If we’d like
to use you as a case study, we’ll give you a call to have a chat and double check that you’re right for the story.

We will always ask you to approve any press release that mentions you via email or on the phone before we
issue it to the media, so you can be sure that all the information is correct.

In some cases, we might need to set up a photo shoot with you so we have images to provide to the press. It
might also be that a journalist who picks up the story wants to talk to you themselves to get some more
information. We will always consult you first before organising a shoot or a phone interview to ensure you’re
comfortable with it going ahead.

                                     COMPANY MAGAZINE

If we use you as a case study example and the story appears online or in a newspaper, we will do our very
best to let you know and get a copy of it to you. If we conduct a photo shoot, we will also be able to provide
you with the photos so you can use them for your own promotional work; just let us know and we’ll send
them to you via email.

What you can do to promote your business
Unfortunately, the size of the Kleeneze network means we are unable to draft stories about individual
distributors and their achievements. However, if you think you have a story that’s worth telling, you’ll find a
number of templates on the DSA which you can use to draft your own press release.

Fill in the appropriate template with your details and then you’ll then be able to try and sell your story to local
media.

Call the chosen newspaper/s and ask to speak to the Newsdesk then explain who you are, briefly summarise
what your story is about and ask who the best person to send the releases to is. e.g. ‘I’m Paul Smith and I
work as a Kleeneze distributor in Preston. I recently won a car for my work with the company. I’ve drafted a
press release about it, and I was wondering who would be the best person to send that to?’

The journalist should then give you an email address to send your release through to. If you have a photo that
you think will sit alongside the story – for example, if you’ve won a car, perhaps a shot of you with your prize -
it’s worth sending that to the newspapers too.

If you’d like, you can follow up your story with another call to the newspaper a few days later; make sure you
take a note of the journalist’s name so that you can speak to the same person the next time you call.
However, make sure you don’t pester journalists – if anything, it will put them off running your story.

Please note that we don’t recommend that Kleeneze Distributors approach national media outlets with these
press releases; you’re much more likely to get a positive response from your local media. Nor do we
recommend that you draft your own releases from scratch if the template releases don’t suit your needs.



   • Please respond as soon as you can to any messages or emails that we leave for you – the media
     moves fast, which means you could miss out on an opportunity if you are slow in getting back to
     us.

   • Be as detailed as possible when filling out your database entry at
     www.citypress.co.uk/kleeneze as this will help us to make sure we get in touch with the right
     case study examples.

   • You can help us by keeping an eye out on your local press titles and letting us know if the story
     that you’ve appeared in is featured; we have a newspaper cuttings service that should pick up on
     all press coverage, but occasionally smaller pieces are missed.


If you have a story that you’re sure would interest the national media, then you can email
Citypress at kleeneze@citypress.co.uk.

Get dressed for success
What you wear is important to your success. Delivering
catalogues in your pyjamas may result in the same sales,
but to be noticed; to be top of your customers’ minds is
vital for increasing sales. When customers see the
company you are representing, the want to know that
it’s professional, outstanding and successful. Which is
why over the past couple of years, Kleeneze has invested
heavily in producing branded clothing.

                     “This Kleeneze clothing is working
                     wonders for me!” said Gold
                     Senior Executive Distributor,
                     Marie Ryan. “Any day I am out
                     doing activity promoting my
                     business and as soon as anyone
                     sees the name Kleeneze on my
                     fleece T-shirt or whatever I’m
                     wearing, they have no problem
                     putting up my advertisement.

When I was in the bank paying my account a few weeks
ago, the lady behind the counter noticed the name on
the statement and commented that she had seen advert
on TV and she wanted a catalogue. I also had 7 other
people looking for catalogues in various different areas
as we were doing activity with some new team
members. It gives the new Distributors great confidence
to see people looking for a catalogue.

I think every one should invest in branded clothing, as
the company are due to go live on Irish TV channels
soon and they’ll meet us with the brand Kleeneze being
advertised. The power of association will be very
powerful, but only if it’s used. I am proud of what I do
and that is the message I am putting out there - be a
Kleeneze agent not a secret agent.”

From polo shirts to waterproofs, we have everything to
help you brand your business effectively. What better
way to spread the word!

THEY THINK IT’S ALL OVER…
BUT IT’S ONLY HALF-TIME
Many breathed a sigh of relief when the announcement came that Britain was officially out of recession.
However, looking around the empty towns and cities with as much as a quarter of shops lying empty, it’s
feared that some high streets will never be the same again. Add to that more reports of thousands of job
losses throughout January and February of this year and it makes for a glum realisation – the recession is still
very much alive and well.

“I was a National Sales Manager on a great salary, had a BMW and
all the perks,” explains Surrey-based Carol Talmage. “Then, on
my first day back at work in January after the New Year I was told,
hand your car back – you haven’t got a job anymore.

“I’d looked at Kleeneze in the past, but it had never been the right
time. I decided I’d try Kleeneze and look for another job at the
same time. But something changed. In my old job, I was working
80-odd hours a week, away from home two or three times a week
and I just didn’t relish the thought of working for another boss. In
my first month, I’d qualified for the SOS incentive and then later
went Gold. I began to see what I could really make from Kleeneze.

My partner, Steve Dowling, was a carpenter and due to the way
the market was, lost his job too. Once he saw how well I was doing, he decided to join as well. The recession
is actually helping Kleeneze – there are a lot more people out there looking for this opportunity.

With warnings that unemployment may reach 3 million by the end of 2010, Carol is definitely not alone. In
fact, the recession figures show that women are faring worst because they fill many of the part-time and
temporary posts that are routinely cut first.

                                           “I joined Kleeneze in September 2009,” said Silver Distributor
                                           Wendy Ward in Sheffield. “I had worked at Senior Management
                                           level within recruitment since 1993, working long hours and under
                                           immense pressure. I had my children in 2000 and 2005 and
                                           returned to working part-time, with my children being in private
                                           childcare provision 40 hours a week. My bills for monthly childcare
                                           were double my mortgage payments! I earned a good salary, with
                                           a company car, but I got ill in 2008 and then I was made
                                           redundant in May 2009 and found myself not knowing how I was
                                           going to work around my illness, my kids and my requirement for
                                           an interesting job.

“Whilst surfing the internet for a work from home opportunity, I came across Kleeneze. I wasn't sure how I
could physically do the distribution as I suffer with chronic fatigue and walk with a crutch. However, I got
more information about the opportunity and thought if I didn't give it a go, I would never know.

“Doing the business in school hours is great; no more childcare! I also have the chance to spend time with the
kids when they are ill and this year I am going to both the kids’ Christmas shows, without asking anyone and
without dashing straight off like the other working Mums and Dads!”

For many, the recession brought a huge amount of doubt and anxiety in its wake. Those who had a career/life
plan mapped out, had to rethink, as suddenly the future wasn’t quite so secure.

Maria and Frank Rendle was one couple who were caught
off guard by the recession. Seven years ago, they started their
10-year retirement plan, only to have their lives turned upside
down in March last year.

“Our retirement plan was to buy a house in the country in
Suffolk and for Frank to work to the age of 70 or 71, by
which time we would be mortgage and debt-free. As we both
worked in Project Management in the rail industry and with
several large projects about to start, this was quite feasible.

“But in late 2008, with the recession biting, both our
consultancy firms were making people redundant. Frank
found a contract position, but the company had their long
term contract reduced, so Frank was again made redundant in March 2009.

“It took us until May 2009 to realise that traditional jobs were really hard to find, so we started looking at
alternative employment options. We responded to an ad for Catalogue Distributors, expecting to go out and
deliver telephone directories or Yellow Pages. When Heather O’Neil sent us the information pack, we felt that
it wasn't for us, partly because neither of us is a sales person, but also because an income of a few hundred
pounds didn't come close to Frank's previous income. So, we turned it down.

“Heather sent us her contact details, but also explained that it really wasn't sales. After a few weeks with
nothing promising on the horizon, we talked the opportunity over again and decided to give Kleeneze a try as
we had nothing to lose except £151. A few days later we had our starter kit, put it together and Frank did his
first drop. He lost a lot of catalogues, but also came home with £305 worth of orders. We were amazed! Our
first full period in business was Period 8 of 2009 - we made the 10% level and in Period 9 made 13%. Any
reservations we may still have had were blown away by the Xmas Showcase in Birmingham. It was so
inspirational and we went home with great enthusiasm for the Kleeneze system.

“By period 13 we turned over £2,000. While we're still only making a fifth of Frank's erstwhile income, we've
seen that the system works and that it is possible to make an income from Kleeneze that exceeds Frank's
previous income. And then mine also!”
