Q:  How Does AVON work?  What is a campaign?  How do I get paid?

A: You take orders from family, friends and coworkers etc.each campaign.  A campaign is the selling period for each brochure and lasts 2 weeks. At the end of the campaign you submit the order to AVON.  You are billed the discounted price.  The customers pay the full brochure price. You submit payment to Avon before the placing the next order. The difference between the two is your pay!

Q: What do I need to run a successful business?

A: As an Avon independent sales representative you own your own business.  You are responsible for purchases the things necessary such as brochures, samples, basic office supplies etc.  You get brochures in your kit to start.  After that you must purchase them, the more you buy the less they cost.pack # of brochures cost each total
  10 brochures $5.75
  20 brochures $7.95
  30 brochures $10.20

You will receive some samples in with your starter kit but for samples you want to purchase it will cost between $1.00 and $2.00 for a pack of 10 samples.

Q: Do I have to keep any inventory on hand?  A: At Avon, you are never required to keep a stock of products on hand. I find its nearly impossible to predict what your customers will order and do not suggest stocking up.  

Q:  Am I required to place an order every campaign?

A: No, its not required but its advisable to at least order the brochures so you are able to show your customers the current sales and the latest products. To stay active you need to place an order every two or three campaigns.

Q: Do I have to attend meetings? 

A: You do not have to attend but I highly recommend it.   Avon offers extensive on-line training that you access 24 hours a day, seven days a week to enhance your business. Your District Sales Manager, or the Avon Representative who referred you to this site, may hold group meetings in your area designed to share product training or program incentives. If so, you will be contacted in advance. 

Q: Do I have to have parties?

A: You are not required to have any parties.  However, many Representatives find group selling to be a very lucrative way to sell more products, broaden their customer base, and build their network marketing organization. If you do choose to participate in group selling, Avon offers various training and support materials to assist you.  That's the beauty of Avon you decide how to run your business.

Q: Is it hard to sell Avon?

A: Avon is one of the best known brands in the world, which makes it easy to sell. It has quality products at affordable prices.  There is something for everyone!

Q: Do I need to file Income Tax? A: Avon is not required to send in your name or SS# unless you make more than $5000 a year. You will need to contact an accountant for info on filing for taxes.

Q: Do I have to sign a contract with Avon?

A: . There is a contract to sign, but it is only to state that you agree to the terms and conditions of being a representative. There is no time limit on the contract, and there is no fee or penalty to ending your relationship with AVON.
