The Positives and Negatives Of Selling Avon

Just like with any business, Selling Avon has positives and negatives.

I try to be upfront with people, so they know exactly what they are “getting into.”  If you know what to expect upfront, you’re more likely to be successful.

For some reason, it seems that when some people sign up to start their own home business, they have some idea in the back of their mind that they just bought a lottery ticket.

They paid their money and purchased the starter kit, and now the money will just start rolling in.

But it just doesn’t work that way.  I don’t think you’ll find anything that works that way, except maybe the lottery. 🙂

I’m not looking to just sign someone up to sell Avon so I can have them on my team.  That doesn’t help you and it doesn’t help me either.

Selling is just like any other business.  It takes work, enthusiasm, and the ability to stay focused while you grow your business.  But it’s an amazing opportunity for those who embrace it and work to build it.

Selling Avon is just like any other business. It takes work. Having a home business isn’t for everyone, and that’s okay. But it is a great opportunity for those where there is a fit.

Is Avon right for you? It depends on what you’re looking for.

Are you outgoing (or willing to learn), ambitious, and willing to put in the effort it will take to create a life-changing income? Then, Yes, this is for you.

Maybe you’re looking to just earn a little bit of extra cash, or even get your personal products at a discount. Then, Yes, this is for you too.

You won’t get rich with Avon overnight, but you can definitely get rich over time, with some dedicated, consistent effort.

Still interested? Great! Let’s get into the Positives and Negatives of Selling Avon!

The Positives of Selling Avon

Get started for as little as $5! – It’s a quick application. This will give you everything you need to build a successful Avon Business.

Or you can purchase a Starter Kit of Avon’s best-selling products for only $30. Each kit is valued at over $100.

Unlike many other direct sales companies, you don’t have to spend very much on a starter kit to start selling Avon.

You can make your dreams come true with Avon – You’ll make friends that will last a lifetime, have the opportunity to earn luxurious vacations, and build your business to the top of the pay scale in sales and leadership to bring home a 6-figure income and beyond.

Avon’s Quick Start Program – New Representatives have the ability to earn $3,250+ in their first 4 months.*

The more you sell, the more you make – Avon gives you the benefit to grow your business as you see fit, and the more effort you put into it, the more money you will make.

When you sign up to sell Avon, you will earn a 25% commission on all Beauty & Jewelry products.

You will earn 20% on the “fixed earnings” products. These are products in the Avon brochure that have a diamond ❖ symbol in front of its description, such as purses, clothing, shoes, etc.

As your sales continue to grow, your commission percentages will also increase… all the way up to a possible 50% earnings.

One Exception to this, There is also a Pathway to Premier program, which, if followed, will help you earn $3,250 within your first 8 campaigns.*

If you’ve looked at Avon before, you will note that this is a NEW, exciting, simplified commission structure.

*All new Representatives earned an average of $112 over their first 8 campaigns, but those who participated in Pathway to Premier earned an average of $390 over their first 8 campaigns, based on those who started in Campaigns 5 through 19, 2020 (exclusive of signup and shipping costs).

No Quotas – There are no sales quotas. This is your business and you get to choose what you want out of it. As long as you place an order of any amount every 6 campaigns your Avon account will remain active.

You will, however, want to order brochures for every campaign so you can continue to build a strong business.  But then again… that’s not even required.  If you choose to text the Digital Brochure to your customers, that’s perfectly acceptable and is also a great way to grow your business!

Free Online Store, Training, and Support – Every Avon Representatives gets their own FREE Online Store where you can sell to anyone in the U.S. Your store is open 24-hours a day.

You can set your store up so that whenever anyone comes to your store, they will place their order, pay for it at that time, and Avon will ship the products to them and then pay you your commission. Pretty sweet!

You also get FREE Training from Avon and from Me! You are never in it alone when you sign up to be an Avon Representative.

Flexibility – Make your own schedule. Have the flexibility to work around your children’s needs or the needs of your aging parents. You are in control of your own schedule.

The Negatives of Selling Avon

It’s not a get-rich-quick business – You will not get rich overnight. You can definitely grow your business to a 6-figure income and beyond, but it will not happen overnight.

If you’re expecting to make a ton of money right away, you’ll either need to be willing to put in massive effort right away or reconsider your decision to sell Avon.

Flexibility – I listed this as a Positive of Selling Avon, but it can also be in the Negative section. You have the flexibility to make your own schedule. But it can also be your downfall if you don’t take the scheduling part seriously. It’s important to schedule your activities and put in the effort to build a strong Avon business.

It takes work – All direct selling companies require time, dedication, and investment to be successful. You can be as successful as you want, but you will have to want it and work hard at it.

You may run into some competition – Depending on where you live, you may have a lot of local Avon Representatives in your area. But I suggest you not let that bother you. Stay true to yourself, and you’ll attract the right people to you.

In my team, 7 out of my 10 top Representatives in my entire team all live in one tiny little town in California. You would think that would be a problem, but it’s not really. Everyone has their own sphere of influence, and we all know different people.

And you’ll find some customers would rather work with you and they’ll be loyal to you. You’ll also find some customers who would rather work with another Avon Representative, and that’s okay too. There’s plenty of business for everyone.

Someone will tell you No – They will tell you they’re not interested or may even look at you funny. You’ll need to learn to not let that No bother you.  Keep in mind that they’re not saying No to you, only to Avon… and that’s totally okay.  If you keep going, you’ll find more than enough people who say Yes!  The more you do it, the easier it will get.

Having a home business can be a lot like riding a roller coaster – Just like in anything else in life, there will be ups and downs in your Avon business. Sometimes you’re riding high on a wave and everything you touch turns to gold. And then there are times when it feels like you can do nothing right.

Just hang in there. Don’t worry about what other Avon Representatives are doing. Be in competition only with yourself. Work to be better than yesterday and do something every day to move your business forward. Trust the process and stay committed to growing our business and you will succeed.

The Bottom Line

Like any business, you get paid according to the effort you put into building it. Avon is a performance-based opportunity, which means the harder you work, the more money you will earn.

In order to make the most money, I recommend that you build your Avon business by incorporating all three ways to earn income with Avon:

  1. Selling Avon Face-to-Face – There are lots of ways to sell Avon face-to-face… Passing out brochures to your friends and family, taking brochures to work and sharing them with your coworkers, getting out there and meeting new people (like at stores, restaurants, etc.) and passing out brochures, setting up a table or booth at an event, or even going door-to-door.
  2. Selling Avon Online – You will be given your own Avon Online Store where you will be able to sell online. You can set it up so that your customer places their order on your website and pays for their order just like any other shopping website, and then Avon ships the products directly to them.  You’ll want to build a text or email list for your Digital Brochure texts.  And when you add your new potential customers to your Avon Address Book, Avon will email them to keep them engaged with your store.
  3. Starting Your Own Avon Team – You share the Avon opportunity with others and help them build their own business. You are there to mentor and support them as they grow their business, and then you will earn a bonus commission from your entire team sales.

So, is selling Avon worth it? It all depends on how much time, effort, and hard work you’re willing to invest.

If you’re just looking for a little extra spending money and/or getting a discount on your products, you won’t need as much effort.

But if you’re looking to build a walk-away income, you can do that too if you decide you want it and work hard to pursue your dreams.
