Why Should I Sell Avon?
The legacy of Avon Founder David H. McConnell, and the core priority of the company today, is the empowerment of women. This mission is as relevant today as it was in 1886 when the company was founded.
The Avon independent Sales Representative earnings opportunity empowers women by enabling Avon’s independent Representatives to support themselves and their families. Representatives across North America are in business for themselves, but they are not by themselves. Our field management, as well as other Representatives, provide mentoring, training and support.
The Representative earnings opportunity offers another benefit: a flexible alternative to traditional employment, without set hours and a set workplace. Whether in San Juan, Montreal or St. Louis, women leverage this flexibility to drive their Avon businesses in the context of other responsibilities—the ultimate work-life balance.
There are two ways to earn money as a Representative: by selling products or—through the Sales Leadership program—by selling products while recruiting others. The higher a Representative’s campaign (selling cycle) sales are, the greater the percentage she will earn on those sales. Sales Leaders, Representatives who both sell and recruit, earn money based on their personal sales plus their recruits’ sales, with a similar progressive earnings structure applied.
What is Direct Selling?
Direct selling is the marketing and selling of products directly to customers away from a fixed retail location. Direct selling can be conducted one-on-one, in a group or party format, or online. At Avon, the “direct” part of direct selling also refers to the personal component of this sales channel; it’s about building relationships with people and offering them a high level of service and personal attention.
Avon wants our Representatives to succeed by offering a no-barrier earnings opportunity to support themselves and their families. We support each Representative in her efforts to achieve success and empower her to be self-sufficient by earning an income. The company’s direct-selling model offers a low cost of entry, a wide range of training and development opportunities, management support, and digital direct selling tools that enable Representatives to manage and grow their businesses as never before.
All it takes to become a Representative and launch a business is the nominal cost of an appointment fee.
Once appointed, a Representative has flexibility over her schedule and is her own boss, setting the parameters and goals for her business. For some Representatives, selling Avon is a full-time business. Others sell Avon to supplement income from a full-time job, or for a set period of time to achieve a certain financial goal, such as a child’s college tuition or a family vacation.
Credit-eligible Representatives generally do not pay Avon until their customers pay them directly, meaning a Representative does not have to make a cash outlay to cover the cost of her customers’ orders.
Our business model enables many women, who otherwise might not have access to credit, to pursue and attain their personal financial goals.
Training for Success
Avon offers numerous training opportunities for Representatives, including an online training curriculum called Avon University, available on yourAvon.com, the website used by Representatives to manage their business. This eLearning program offers more than 100 round-the-clock, free, self-paced training courses on subjects including: building your sales, success is green, building your team, managing your business, marketing your business, as well as a specific curriculum for new Representatives.
Mentoring is also a key component of training. We offer our Representatives workshop training and development, leadership seminars and monthly district “business buzz” meetings targeting product marketing offers.
Connectivity and community have always been critical to Avon’s direct-selling model. When the company was founded 130 years ago, it pioneered relationship marketing, with Representatives personally marketing products to their customers—the original social network. Today the one-on-one relationship, defined by high quality, personalized service, is still at the core of our direct-selling business.
We meld face-to-face contact with virtual interaction and are constantly integrating new technologies in the way people connect, communicate, share and shop. Our digital strategy is designed to enhance the social selling experience for Representatives and the shopping experience for consumers. By innovating the direct-selling sales channel, we continue to help our Representatives succeed and thrive through “social selling,” a complement to traditional face-to-face selling.
We offer many digital tools—on the Internet, social media and mobile technology—that enhance Representatives’ reach, productivity, and earnings. Representatives businesses can integrate seamlessly with the way people today connect, share and shop, and create communities, through our new multi-channel selling tools such as:
• Personalized eStores in the United States that give Representatives the option to sell through their own online store, featuring such customizable features as blogs, special offers, select product highlights, and videos.
• Email marketing programs and a social media suite featuring valuable beauty content that Representatives can easily share with their customers.
• Customized social media environments for Representatives to reach customers and other Representatives.
• Avon-branded networking sites for Representatives, their customers, sales leaders and all empowered women. These sites enable users to interact to share their love of beauty, as well as connect with each other. Representatives also receive peer to peer support on the sites.
• A Virtual Makeover Tool on the United States eCommerce site, as well as a mobile version, that enables customers to try on products virtually before purchasing.
Empowered to Make an Impact
Unique to Avon is our woman-to-woman network of Representatives combined with our capacity to educate, engage and mobilize.
Representatives make up a powerful grassroots movement that reaches across continents and time zones to raise awareness and funds for issues of health, safety and well-being that are important to women.
For the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade and Speak Out Against Domestic Violence initiatives, Representatives have raised hundreds of millions of dollars through sales of special products and personal participation in walks, runs and other events. For our Healthy Forests, Beautiful World initiative, Representatives raised millions of dollars to help restore endangered rain forests in Brazil and Indonesia.

My Avon Story
I am born and raised in Southern California. I grew up in Anaheim, CA, spent 13 years in mountains of Idyllwild and then eventually moved to the Hemet/San Jacinto Valley where I now reside. I began working at the age 0f 15 but I have actually only had a handful of jobs in my lifetime; Fast food manager, extruder operator, restaurant owner, fire fighter and now district manager for a private fire prevention company and media/ marketing for an off road racing company. I also own a home based computer service/repair company and an off road media/marketing company. I hold an AS degree in Fire Science from Mt San Jacinto College where I graduated with honors of distinction.
I decided to become an Avon Representative in 2014. My daughter had signed up and my sister-in-law as well. My sister-in-law joined for the discount on her own purchases and my daughter gave it up after a while; she found she didn’t have the time she wanted to devote to it while raising two toddlers.
I had always thought about becoming an Avon Rep, but it was always just a thought. I remember my mom buying Avon when I was very young and was always mesmerized at all the products and how the Avon lady always looked so beautiful and polished. Of course I loved the lipstick bullets!
My daughter’s upline and mutual friend, Leslie Reid, was always sharing Avon deals and the opportunity on Facebook. One day she posted about joining her team and becoming an Avon Rep; I just decided right then and there to do it. I had no plan or specific reason. As I started selling, I realized that I was actually having fun and felt accomplished at how well I was doing. I decided I wanted to get serious and actually be successful!
For the remainder of that first year I concentrated on learning as much as I could about the business; learning most everything on my own. Then in 2015 I devoted every extra dollar and minute I had to my Avon Business. I grew my customer base slowly but surely and over time my customer base and sales consistently increased. I even started my leadership journey at the encouragement of Emily Seagren who was Leslie’s upline.
I studied and learned everything I could from Emily and through her’s and Leslie’s mentorship I am where I am today. In January of 2017 the opportunity to purchase Leslie’s Avon team was presented to me. Not one to pass up a great offer I took it! Emily Seagren is now my upline, my team has almost doubled and I am now a Bronze Leader; Team Shine is thriving!
My goals for 2017 are to ear the title of “Gold Leader” and make “Honor Society” again in 2017. My long term goal is to retire and Avon continue to be my major source of income. I hope to accomplish this in the next 5 years.
