Anyone sell AVON? Is it worth it?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
The really low startup fee is enticing, and the fact that you don't have to have an inventory, but I'm worried I'll get buckle and dimed and not have many customers.

I really want to be exclusively online and do online marketing/selling. People could just buy product via my website. Is this possible with AVON? Or do you have to go door to door and have parties/shows? I signed up with AVON online to get more info, bit the rep that called me wasn't very helpful.

If not AVON are there other companies that offer online rep opportunities?

What is 31?


Quoting metalhealthmom:

I don't like Avon product...so I wouldn't do it.



I've been thinking about selling 31, though.

I sold Avon for 15 years. I didn't make any money. I just kept doing it because I enjoyed it. The books cost a lot, so it's hard to make money because of that too. You can't miss more than two campaigns or they shut you down. I don't know how it is on the internet Good Luck

See, that also concerns me because I don't know many women who would buy. This is why I wanted to do exclusively online marketing.


Quoting Aspirel:

I use to sell Avon and I made good money.HOWEVER most of my sales were at my 9-5 job where 95 percent of the employees were women.So you need to have access to a lot of women to succeed. I tried online,it never worked ,I refused to spam people though.

Quoting MrsMalsam:

I hated Avon and Shaklee. I now sell Scentsy and don't have to carry stock either. 85% of my sales are online. 

Edit to add: I LOVE scentsy. I've never had a customer complain about it and I am also addicted to the products so for me it's a win-win. I have more customers now than I ever did with Avon or Shaklee. 

Hello,

I read your reply and was wondering what is Scentsy? How much is it to join?
