New Avon KickStart Program


New Avon KickStart Program



KickStart Program: Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the KickStart Program?

A: The KickStart program is part of the overall new onboarding experience, designed to help new Representatives get a taste for success from their first Avon order and beyond. It rewards new Representatives for both sales and recruiting success in their first 7 campaigns. New Representatives can earn free brochures covering their KickStart selling timeframe when they place orders of $50 or more on in LOA 1-5. Lastly, New Representative can earn a $200 performance bonus when they achieve the KickStart sales targets and bring in a minimum of three (3) Qualified Recruits within the incentive timeframe.

Q: How does the program work?

A: The program consists of three components: there is a Sales Component, a Recruiting component and a KickStart Bonus component.

1. Sales Component

a. New Representatives placing a will earn 40% on all product sales (direct delivery, fixed-earnings items and beauty) when they achieve sales at the following thresholds charted below:

LOA Sales Goal Earnings
1 Any size 40%
2 $150 40%
3 $200 40%
4 $250 40%
5 $300 40%
6 $350 40%
7 $400 40%

b. In addition, to help new Representatives “KickStart” their business, Avon will supply new Representatives with one pack (10) of free brochures with a order of $50 or more in LOAs 1-5. This means, when Representatives take advantage of the free brochures offer – these brochures added to those included in the Starter kit – represents free brochures covering their entire first 7 campaigns (KickStart period) of selling!

2. Recruiting Component

In addition to this sales component, new Representatives qualify for a $50 recruiting bonus for every Qualified KickStart Recruit (QKR) referred during their first 7 campaigns with Avon. A QKR is defined as having a $150 or more on time paid 1st order or 2nd order.

3. KickStart Performance Bonus

When new Representatives achieve all the sales targets and recruit a minimum of three (3) qualified Representatives within their first 7 campaigns, they will receive an additional $200 performance bonus. Achieving all three components results in new Representatives earning $1000 or more in their first 90 days.

Q: How do new Representatives qualify for the free pack of 10 brochures during KickStart?

A: Representatives must place a order of $50 or more in LOAs 1-5

Q: How do New Representatives receive the free brochures during KickStart?

A: Representatives will receive the free brochures directly in their qualifying orders.

Q: What happens if a Representative misses a sales target – are they out of the Kick Start Program?

A: No not at all. Each campaign stands alone meaning a Representative can earn the 40% earnings and/or the pack of free brochures in any individual campaign even if she missed a previous order’s sales target for these rewards.

Q: Do online store orders, Sales Center and Representative Delivery ( orders count towards the campaign sales qualifier for this program?

A: Yes. Online Orders, Direct Delivery orders, Sales Center orders in addition to Representative Delivered orders ( all count each campaign towards the 40% sales goals for this program. However, only orders count toward the $50 orders for the free pack of brochures.

Q: Are Bonus Dollars included in calculating the sales qualifier for this Program?

A: No. Bonus Dollars like Double / Triple Dollar are not included in calculating the sales targets in this program.

Q: I understand a new Representative will not earn 40% if a sales target is missed – but what will they earn on those sales?

A: If the sales goal is NOT achieved in any KickStart campaign, the Representative will earn based on the chart below:

Campaign Order Size Earnings on Beauty & Jewelry Earnings on Fashion & Home fixed (◊)
$0-$149.99 20% 20%
$150-$299.99 30% 20%
$300-$399.99 35% 20%

Q. Do the orders have to be placed on time?

A: Yes, orders must be submitted on time as defined in the Avon Independent Sales Representative Policies & Procedures located on the Community Tab on

Q: What happens if a Representative doesn’t submit her brochure order but gets an online store order before her contracted started campaign?

A: Any “early orders” are collected to be combined to post in the new Representatives expected campaign of first order. However, if the new Representatives does not place an order on in the expected campaign of first order (expected campaign of first order is the campaign indicated on her Representative agreement) any online orders and/or any Avon Sales Center purchases that fall within the timeframe will be combined and processed as the Representative’s first order at 40%.

Q: What is the Campaign of expected first order?

A: The campaign of expected first order is the campaign a new Representative is assigned to place their first order, based on the day they enroll online. The campaign of expected first order assignment is based on criteria that allows enough time for a new Representative to sell their first campaign. The counter begins the day the kit is expected to arrive (we have built in a 5 day delivery window), from which point we ensure at least 14 days for the New Representative to sell.

Q: How can I determine what Campaign my new Recruit is assigned to?

A: To help you to understand the calculation, we’ve created a new tool for Mentors called the “Onboarding Calendar for Mentors” which will help you identify the campaign your new recruit will be assigned, based on the date of their online enrollment on or Leaders can find the calendar on under Mentor Tools.

Q: Do the orders have to be paid for on time?

A: Yes. For recruiting bonuses to qualify, the new Representative’s account must be in good standing.

Q. Do reinstatements count as New Representatives?

A: No, Reinstatements do not count. For more information on what is defined as a reinstatement, refer to the Business Policies and Procedures for Avon Independent Sales Representatives which can be found on

Q: When will the New Representative receive her Recruiting bonus Pay-out?

A. The $50 recruiting bonus will be sent by direct deposit at the campaign close when the recruit’s 1st order has been paid on time. If the Representative chooses not to enroll in direct deposit, recruiting bonuses will be administered via a pre-paid Visa/MasterCard. Be advised it may take up to 30 days for the card to be issued. Once issued, subsequent recruiting or performance bonuses will be added at the end of each campaign.

Q: When will the New Representatives receive the $200 KickStart Performance bonus?

A: The Performance Bonus Payout will be issued after the close of the 7th campaign if the sales levels and minimum recruiting criteria have already been met within the 7 campaign timeframe. If the KickStart participant has a pending new recruit(s) within the 30-day window to submit the first order, then performance bonus payout will be pending until the new recruit becomes a QKR or reaches the end of the 30-day incentive order submission window.

Q: Do Representative accounts need to be in good standing to receive the rewards?

A: Yes. As per Avon policy Representative must be active and in good standing to receive any rewards.

Q: Will I be able to find reports to track my new Representative’ progress in KickStart?

A: Tracking is available on VIBE for Sales Leaders.

    About Me

    I was 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 of 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.

    How I became an Avon Representative

    I decided to become an Avon Representative in 2014.  My sister-in-law was a representative but only for her own discount. My daughter had sold for a short time but it just wasn’t her thing.

    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 friend Leslie who was a representative as well 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. Remember, I was already working a full time job on top of my own businesses. As I started selling, I realized that I was actually having fun and felt accomplished at how well I was doing; I was only doing Avon part time in the evenings and weekends. 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 more than tripled and I am now a Gold Leader!
