Trying to start my Avon business
« on: December 06, 2014, 06:36:49 PM »
Okay, so I'm really trying to get my Avon business to take off so that I can make a living off of that. I want to work at home for the time being. I would spend more time with my family and I can concentrate a little more on school, since I am a part time college student. Working from home would really allow for me to finish my degree faster because I could go to school full time instead of what I'm doing now. Also, I have googled so many work from home sites and I have not gotten anywhere! What are some great work from home sites I can go to and try to find work? Also, how do I spot a SPAM article/job posting from an actual legit job posting?

As far as your Avon business goes, put it on your Facebook page and make sure that all of your friends know you are a representative. Try visiting local businesses and see if they need an Avon lady. :) There are a lot of sites where you can make a little bit of side income like Postloop and Amazon Mechanical Turk. I am still learning which sites to avoid for article writing so I can't help you much with that one. :)

What is Amazon Mechanical Turk? Is that where you sell stuff on Amazon or something? I have never heard of that one before. I mean, it's never popped up in my google searches lol. Does postloop pay well?

Good luck with your Avon business. :)
I am also an Avon lady, just signed up on it last year but never got serious on it. Mostly bought items there for personal use and gifts only cause there are discounts as a member.
You can browse various threads in this forum to learn some of those legit sites and avoid those scam ones.

Avon work is good.....IF you have people that want to buy the products. I mean, I have people asking me left and right for books but yet no one has really come to me to place an order. I don't know if they kick you out of Avon if you don't make any sales, but whatever. I have googled so many different sites and for some reason, my computer has all the "needs" of having that job, but you run the system check and it says I don't qualify when CLEARLY I know I do. I'm just on the verge of getting evicted from my house and I need money and need it fast so I can pay my bills! I'm so stressed out! Those survey sites really pay out? I can get never "qualify" for any of them. It is really a bummer.

I love avon. I've sold it before. I did really well with it. Sales experience helps. If you can figure out where to go to be around women that just see that you have the catalogues. Soft sell it. A community center, the library, or where ever you can. Work on orders or just browse the catalogue. They will come over to you and ask if you sell. The catalogues are like a magnet. Go into small businesses and place the catalogues like hair salons or small shops. How much is it to have a website with them a month? This is a good add-on. I probably did about $500 a campaign in profit (every two weeks).

Where i am located Avon is not a booming business as it once was. I remember when the distributors were overwhelmed with customers and the products were quite a catch on the market, especially the cosmetics. Now the market is getting more competitive and other products are taking over as they are more reasonably priced and the number of distributors are getting less. I have not seen a distributor for a long while. Avon products are still available in the country though, but mostly the larger distributors such as the cosmetic shops have them as opposed to individuals.

I found it hard to start my Avon business when I first started too. Since I was not working at the time, I passed out catalogs to everyone who seemed interested in whatever I was wearing at the time from them, and I made sure I got friends and family to purchase items and let their friends know about it. I received most of my orders from friends of my family members, and word-of-mouth.

Avon was a really hard one for me, I guess because I am an introvert and not really too outgoing. If you can build up clients that buy from you on a regular basis you will do good with it. I know someone that goes to hair salons and nail shops and just drops off her catalogs, I assume she does well with it because she has been doing it for years.

As far as finding something online to do you have to be very careful when you are desperate because it is easy to fall for scams. I know this from experience. You will have to play with sites to see which ones are a good fit for you. Just make sure to find reviews of honest people who have had experience with any sites you find.

I have made most of my money from writing articles on textbroker and crowdsource, you can also try iwriter. I have also had some success with a couple survey sites but they are a little time consuming for the pay if you need a lot of cash fast. I wish you luck and look forward to reading about your progress.

I sold Avon before and did real well.  I would go places with a catalog and just look at it.  Women would come up to me.  If I was in a place that a lot of women worked I would leave one every once in a while.  It took a while to build up but it was good.

Wow, selling cosmetics door to door still exists?? Would you actually make money from doing that? I mean, nowadays, there's so many options for people to buy things, that I don't think it'll be worth the time and effort you put in, UNLESS you have lots of wealthy friends willing to buy products from you

I think starting your own Avon business is a good thing. If you think you've got the skills in sales, my bet is that you'll be successful in this career. All you have to do is make the world know about your products, and do a lot of promoting and advertising on social media sites. Offline marketing is also good as I think "Word-of-Mouth" marketing never gets old. Good luck! :)

Selling AVON could be quite profitable for you as long as you have an outgoing personality. You have to be prepared to be told no by a lot of people, and still have the drive and motivation to go forward with your product sales. The good thing about selling AVON is that just about every woman here in the United States knows what it is and has had exposure to the products at least once in their lives. A lot of your advertising is already done for you. You should do some research to see how many AVON ladies work in your area because the market can sometimes get flooded with representatives.

I know of several people who have done well with Avon, but it takes work. Surveys do pay, but you have to learn how to answer them. Some answers should never be absolute, but rather select something in the middle, if you want to stay in the survey. Surveys do pay, but not monthly. I usually draw mine towards year end. Postloop pays, but not much. iWriter pays weekly and you can make quite a lot once you get your own clients. oDesk can get you some great jobs, but you will have to sift through the low paying ones. Textbroker is quite good. Transcription sites and usertesting are quite good. Good luck, you sound like you are going to be quite busy.
