One of the great advantages of selling Avon products as a business venture is its low start-up cost. To get started, you will firstly be required to pay a one-time registration fee of $10. After which you will fill out a short application form either online or by an existing representative in your local area.
You can get signed up now by visiting our Avon website here.
Once signed up, you are now your own boss running your own business - ready to start selling Avon. Furthermore, selling Avon is more than a business its a new lifestyle.
Avon require all new representatives to be coached by an existing one in their local area, so if you signed up online you can search for a representative closest to you here. This representative will show how to get started and how to use your online backoffice.
Getting The Word Out
Your next step is to start marketing your Avon business. You have great products in your Avon arsenal for men, women, teens and children (over 2000 products for them to choose from) but without an effective marketing machinery to get the word out you will not be making any money.
Avon will initially provide you with a package of advertising material including brochures, flyers and booklets. Further materials for future advertising will have to be purchased.
So what are your marketing options for selling Avon? How do you get the word out?
You would of course want to market your business both offline and online for optimal effectiveness. You would need to have a computer, printer/fax, basic stationary items and of course the Internet.
Your customers order can either be filled by you placing it for them or they can shop directly from your website after sending them a personal link upon request (having your own Avon website will cost $26 for the year).
If purchases are made from your site by the customer Avon will directly ship it to them, if ordered by you Avon will send the products to you and then arrangements will have to be made with the customer for pickup.
Avon will bill you the discounted price of all items sold and you pay the bill with the money collected from your customers at the retail price. The difference is your earnings.
