I'm thinking about selling Avon or Mary Kay because it would be nice to have some extra money in the family budget. I was wondering if it is possible to just do all that through a web page. Any information about selling either would great. thank you

  • You can sign up for a web directly with Avon. It's not expensive and people you don't even know can buy from you it just shows up on your page and the order, payment and shipping is handled by the company

  • Actually, I think it is, especially Avon. That's a fantastic opportunity as far as I am concerned! Both companies have been around forever, which should give you some idea of how they are business wise. Good luck.

  • Both are great companies and I have tried them both before. I live in a small town and had a hard time finding new customers b/c alot of women were doing it and they already had their own customer base....

  • It's difficult to sell something that everyone and their mother's brother is already selling. I enjoy selling Miche bags and Guy and Eva jewelry. I have what people want, and I'm one of the very few in my area with Miche, and one of the only 3 in my state with Guy and Eva. I have good success with both, and enjoy it very much.

  • Avon is not a big money maker after you pay for your website and such. I didn't care for it. I have never tried Mary Kay. I am a LaBella Gift Basket Consultant and LOVE it! We have a $1.97 jump start program right now. Check out my profile and PM me with any questions you may have.

  • Would you be interested in doing something regarding health and beauty from the inside out? Juice Plus is 17 different fruits and vegetables in a capsule or a gummy. The research for the effects of getting enough fruits and veggies into your diet related to healthy skin and hair is amazing. Contact me if you would like more info.

  • I think you can with Avon but both are saturated markets so don't expect high sales volumn unless you are an excellant saleswoman.
