  • I tried it but so many people sell it that it's hard to get a customer base.

  • I tried to sell it for a while and I ended up owing Avon more than I was making. Around here, there are about 100 people who sell and only about 2,000 people (total), so most of those who sell don't make it very far. In some places, you can make decent money with it, though. If you want to try it, start talking to people now about it and see if you can find some people who are interested. If you start selling, print off fliers, post on any websites you're a member of (you can also get an online page for Avon), etc. Put up the fliers anywhere you can, talk to classmates, cashiers, your stylist, pretty much everyone.

  • I think it only costs $20 to start with Avon. I tried selling it once. I had a few relatives order off of me, but Avon is so cheap that you have to sell a ton of it to make any money.

  • You get books for the current campaign and the following campaign and maybe a few samples. Its been about 2 years since I sold it, so I don't remember exactly everything.

  • well it cost ten dollars excatly to get the next two campg. books ten of each...and one sample pack, a order book, and alittle information papers..i personally thinks its easier to sign up online. and they send everything to you. they now have a online sight that is for 7.50 every two weeks if you have one sale the online fee is waived....i sell now. the only thing i dont like about it is having to ask people for my money,lol. plus you gonna have your good and bad camps if you like you can inbox me your name and email and i will refer you to the right place...good luck!Q

  • I've heard of some people making money but a majority hasn't. As with any home business, it's going to take work.

    I wish you luck!! :o)
