To get started with your business right away, go to smoore.avonrepresentative.com/opportunity/start. You'll be added to my team, the Cloud Climbers, and I will work with you to make your business a success.
You can learn a good bit about the business at the link, and just below are some details as well. If you have other questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The beauty of
starting an Avon business is that you invest so little, (your choice of $25, $50, or $100) and
there is no party kit required, no inventory to maintain, no minimum order, and no sales quota.
For your investment, you will receive resource
materials to get you started as well as books for each of your first
two campaigns. You will also receive full size Avon products worth more than your investment. We turn in orders every two weeks (called a campaign) on
the internet and orders are delivered to our doorsteps within a few
days. Avon will determine from the information submitted on your
contract what your credit limit is. It is your own business, so people
pay you with cash, checks (made out to you), or by credit/debit card,
and you pay Avon the amount due them. You can sell to anyone you want.
Earnings levels with Avon range from 20% to 50%, depending on the
amount of your order. Your discount on the products you purchase for
yourself is equal to your earnings level on the order. You must turn in
an order of at least $50 in order to receive any earnings or discount.
If you order products when they first come out on demo, you get an
additional 5% off.
Here is our current earnings chart for new representatives:
Earnings Chart *
$0 - $149 = 20%
$150 - $299.99 = 30%
$300 - $499.99 = 35%
$500+ = 40%
When you place your first order with Avon,
you order brochures for your third campaign. The brochures are sold in
packs of 10, and one pack is $6.49. The more brochures you buy, the
less they cost per brochure, with 20 books costing $8.89, 30 costing
$11.39, etc. This is to encourage you to build your business by getting
new customers. You charge each customer a service charge of .75 on their
order, and you keep all of that to help cover your expenses. You will
need to purchase bags for sorting the customer orders, and you can get
50 of those for about $1.25. Avon charges One Simple Fee to cover the
cost of the shipping of your products to you based on the size of your order - starting
at $6.00. By charging each customer you personally deliver to a service fee of .75 or $1, you should be able to cover the cost of shipping. Avon has a 100% money back guarantee good for 90 days after the customer purchases the products and you will be able to return one shipment of items to Avon each month with no shipping cost.
Of course, you can invest more in the business by
purchasing samples, demo products, etc., but that is up to you. There
are many free interactive training courses at the Avon website to help you build a
successful business. These courses are excellent, and well worth your time if you want to build a successful business. There are also many top selling Avon representatives who produce content on blogs, on YouTube, and in Facebook groups to help those representatives who choose to use their expert advice.
Avon will furnish you a personal
website (your eStore) at no additional cost where your customers can shop if they
choose or if they live outside of your delivery area. With your eStore you can sell to anyone within the continental United States, with those
not in your delivery area choosing direct delivery from Avon. You will
receive the same earnings for orders placed at your eStore as you do for orders you deliver personally. Avon creates many social media posts that you can use in promoting your
website, and your eCustomers can register to receive emails from Avon about all the latest coupon codes and offers. To see what a typical personal eStore looks like, take a look at mine: www.youravon.com/smoore
I'm sure I have not answered all the questions you may have about an Avon business in this post, so please contact me with any others you think of. I keep no secrets about the Avon business!
*There are some products that are fixed earnings and representatives earn 20% or 25% on those items. This earnings chart reflects earnings for core products such as makeup, skin care, bath & body, fragrance, jewelry except watches, etc. New Representatives will earn 40% on the fixed earnings products if they meet their sales goals as shown in the table above.
There is another way to earn, and that is by adding team members and mentoring them to success. You can ask me more about that part of the business, as I have more than 15 years of experience mentoring my team.
