300 sites is what you should aim to build up to within the first month and this will give you a good income. A good strategy in this business to improve your income without working longer hours, is to simply place more boxes.

Therefore, you will be collecting larger amounts of cash on each visit. 450 boxes is what to aim for longer term.

As this is your business you will have the luxury to decide what hours and what days to work, which makes this a very desirable business to run if you have children at school.

Someone pops in carrying a children’s charity snack box full of lovely tempting items and asks you if you’d mind them leaving it there for the staff to use in order to help raise money for the children’s charity. Wouldn’t you say yes! Its that simple.
