Avon can be a money earner
« on: May 17, 2014, 06:28:45 PM »
l remember seeing Avon starting out when they was a small company and l was a teenager and now they are a big international company with thousands of workers worldwide, l did try it in my younger days and it was a good little earner and l know a lot of other females that have tried it and made a good income but l would not go back. For those people that have some spare time delivering catalogues and having Avon parties it is a good way to make some extra cash.

I read somewhere that it is even easier to sell nowadays with their online platform.  I can't remember the details, but something about a fee you pay monthly to have traffic sent to your order site.  That sounds good, depending what the fee is.  I also sold when I was younger, now it seems like the kids would just play with my inventory...hee hee.

I have considered becoming an avon representative from time to time but what puts me off is the competition. There are so many people already selling Avon products that I think it would be very difficult to find new customers.

When I was an avon rep, I was basically coming out even. There are so many avon representatives that it really is hard to find a dedicated buyer without stealing them from someone else. I never had much luck with online sales either.

If you sell avon, how do you approach people?  I may be interested in this.  But is there a website that teaches you how to sell?  I heard you don't make any money with their online page.  does anyone here have a youtube address, or link where it specifies how to make yourself profitable with avon?  Do you just walk up to people in stores?  They used to go door to door, but I do not believe that many people are home, let alone answer their doors. Thank you in advance.

I know Avon is a door to door type of work right? I think it's tedious to be an Avon Lady, since I read that you still don't make any money with their online page, so you really have no choice but to go door to door, and you must have a lot of contacts who are willing to buy to make a substantial income. How much is the commission per sale of an Avon Lady?

I remember my mother purchasing Avon all the time when I was younger...sweet memories!  I have not tried selling Avon products before, but I did try Mary Kay, which was the same principle.  I did not have much luck at all because it was during the recession when everyone was broke and could not afford to buy things from me.  It got frustrating to say the least.  I think I would like to try selling Avon, but don't you have to know someone to get in?

I love Avon products. Their products are of a very high standard and they have so much variety. Avon are always updating and coming up with new products. Their monthly specials can be truly amazing and very affordable.

I believe Avon can be a money maker if you know what you are doing.
I recently saw someone selling Avon products in a store in the mall. It was nice to be able to handle the products and not to have to wait to receive it. However I'm sure that buying all the items up front for the mall can be difficult. She said she had to do a bit of research to see what items people usually bought from her and she bought those items for her shop.
She also stated that she networks like crazy. She hosts parties, and does giveaways.
Sorry for the long post. I hope this was somewhat helpful.

I was an Avon Representative. It was fun for a while. You can make decent money being a part of their team. It takes hard work and dedication like everything else. You have to accumulate a large following if you want big money. This is somewhat difficult to do because not everyone is rushing to purchase these types of products in an economy like this one. I am not knocking it, it just simply was not for me. I do recommend this for those whom like selling.

I sold Avon years ago and so did my mother. She went door to door and each representative had their own territory which held down the competition. Now everyone has to scramble for customers. If you already have a job and they allow you to solicit you can make a good income and delivery all goes to one place. I also sold Mary Kay and Amway. Obviously I'm no good at direct sales.

I tried selling Avon years ago, but wasn't successful at it. My "income" (which wasn't a lot) went to buy products for myself. I loved trying out all the new things!

I didn't have a big customer base, my mother in law was the main customer. She just bought because she felt sorry for me, I think! Lol.

Avon wants you to buy a specific amount of product, and I believe it is a high starting price. Now days you also get a website with your business, depends where you are at and who wants the products. There is also a quota on how much you have to sell, this is all from here say though. Have heard good and bad things about this company, however I guess every company has the good, the bad and the ugly.
