Avon ?'s

Is it a hard job?

I know you have to pay $10 to start. But later on will I have to pay for things to sell?

What If I don't want to sell anymore? What would I have to do? would I have to pay to stop selling the avon products or just tell them you dont want to anymore then it's done?

What happens if you dont sell that much?

If you know anything else that's IMPORTANT to know be4 u start please help me out thanks!

  • I have a friend who is just starting. She is trying out the products right now to see if she feels good about selling them. I know it is an ethical company and I had thought about doing it myself. But then I wondered, in this economy, if it would be hard to sell people something they don't really need, such as make-up and skin products. If you are looking to start a home business, may I suggest a company called GBG. They offer products that are good for the "inside", which to me, is more important than anything. I began with them in February, and my monthly business cost is $32.15 (that includes one great product and my own website). They offer a lucrative pay plan as well. Here are some links re: the biz. Maybe it would be a fit for you. Good luck. www.shopgbg.com/cmoyer

  • Is it a hard job? It is not a hard job at all! But you do have to work at it! It is a job :)
    I know you have to pay $10 to start. But later on will I have to pay for things to sell? You don't have to carry stock no.
    What If I don't want to sell anymore? What would I have to do? would I have to pay to stop selling the avon products or just tell them you dont want to anymore then it's done? No. Its easy just don't place an order three times in a row and you are auto removed from the system! No fee for quitting.
    What happens if you dont sell that much? Nothing. There are no quotas for sales reps.
    Best advice I have is to have someone sign you up thats willing to help you! I became a unit leader bc my org upline didn't help me succeed. My new one is amazing and as soon as I got on board with her business started booming! I'd love to have you www.start.youravon.com use ref code dhullum PM me for questions :)

  • Before buying or selling any skin care products, it is important to check the safety of the ingredients. I like the Skin Deep database maintained by the Environmental Working Group (the folks who publish the guide to pesticides in produce). www.ewg.org
    Avon and Mary Kay, among others, make a big public show of their support of breast cancer research and victims, yet refuse to stop using cancer causing ingredients in their products.
