My mother has been with Avon for 25+ years. She does NOT have a website yet BUT she makes about $1200 in residual income and $300+ in sales income every month. Keep in mind she has been doing it for 25 years... She makes better money this time of year because of Christmas. She does craft and home shows in the area and sets up a table. It's more expensive up front because she has to order all the stuff for the table first but she usually does well with them. She had one this past week end and she said in 3 days she made almost $400...
All that said I see why people get in to Avon. It's a good product. I tried it myself, but it just wasn't for me! I am now with Ameriplan and in 6 months I was making more than she is after 25 years. Which would be a HUGE part of the reason I quit Avon.

There are 2 big reasons why Avon and other businesses like it are so hard to do now a days... The first reason is simply the fact that with the economy the way it is people are spending MUCH less on the extras like jewelry and candles. The second reason is because the market is over saturated with reps. Every one has, is or was an Avon lady (or guy). So it's hard to find people that need someone to buy from.
If you would like to build your business here are some things I would suggest. First, visit VistaPrint.com and sign up. get business cards and make up postcards and anything else you can get free... (if you want tips on how to get the most free w/VP just PM me) Make up a bunch of stuff with your information and website on it as well as some of the recruiting information on it... LEAVE THEM EVERYWHERE!!! If you leave the house you can find at least 10 places to leave your paper trail before you go home...
