Do you believe in yourself?

hobbies vs. business

Hobbies COST You Money!
Business' Make You Money!

So what you're rejected... it happens all the time

*Don't take rejection personally. Learn to deal with it and move on to your next prospect.
*If a prospect isn't interested, find out whether the person knows someone who is and ask for a referral.

Tip of the Day

Tip of the day: When you are in a store shopping and the sales person ask if you need help... say sure! Build the relationship then politely give a brochure.
If you haven't already, be sure to import your email contacts into your web office and regularly send them email. Also, be sure to scroll through your contacts daily to make sure you delete any contacts that unsubscribed to the emails
The greatest danger for most of us is not that we aim too high and we miss it, but we aim too low and reach it.

I am looking for motivated individuals to join my team. After reading the FAQ's below and if you are interested in joining my winning team, please contact me ASAP.


What is the total investment required to start up my business?
The cost of starting your own Avon business is less than a family dinner at a fast food restaurant.

Will I receive materials to start my business?
You will receive 20 Avon brochures (10 each for your first two selling campaigns) along with product samples and sales training and reference material. As a new Representative you also have the opportunity to purchase selected products and samples at special promotional prices.

What is a selling campaign?
The two-week selling period supported by a brochure that offers customers different products 26 times a year.

What information will be required from me in order to establish my account?
As an Avon Representative, you will be given an automatic line of credit, as such we will require the standard personal information that is requested whenever credit is extended, including your social security number.

How much can I make selling Avon?
You earn 40% commission on beauty products in your first order, regardless of the size when your order is placed online. Throughout your Avon career, you can continue to earn as much as 50% on beauty products, depending on your order size. You can increase your earnings potential by recruiting, training, and mentoring new Representatives.

Do I have to keep products on hand?
At Avon, you are never required to keep a stock of products on hand. You may find, however, that your customers have personal favorites that are helpful for you to have available for last-minute needs. In addition, as a Representative, you are offered exclusive promotional opportunities to purchase products in advance.

How often do I have to place an order?
Avon has 26 sales campaigns throughout the year. Each campaign reflects a two-week selling period marked by promotional offers and/or new product introductions. Contacting your Customers every campaign gives them the opportunity to purchase their Avon favorites, see new products, and take advantage of special offers. You'll find that contacting new and potential Customers on a consistent basis will result in your placing an order each campaign.

How long does it take to receive my order once it is placed?
You will receive your order within 2-3 business days after the order is submitted.

How do I receive future brochures?
Every two weeks, when you place a product order, you purchase your future brochures. Brochures are always ordered four weeks ahead so that you will have them in plenty of time to include them in your Customers' orders, and to share them with new potential Customers.

Do I have to pay for shipping, or do my customers pay a shipping fee?
As long as you place your order on-time, there is never a shipping fee for you. If you wish to receive an order at a different time from your regular scheduled delivery you have the option of receiving it for an additional fee. Surcharges may apply for Alaska, Guam, and Hawaii.

You can sell through a personal website. Your customers can either order products that will be shipped to them directly from Avon or that will be included in your order for you to deliver to customers.

How do I pay for my order?
Payment to Avon is due two weeks after your order is shipped. This gives you time to deliver your orders and collect payment from your customers. You can pay by check, money order, credit card, or online directly from your checking account using Avon Quickpay.

Am I required to attend meetings?
No, meeting attendance is not required. 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 in order to add the event to your calendar.

Do I have to have parties?
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.
(After reading this faq, if you are interested in the opportunity, let me know)

Is it hard to sell Avon?
Avon is one of the best known brands in the world, which makes it easy to sell.

What happens after I sign up?
In a few easy steps, you can become an Avon Representative and start your own business. Promptly after you sign up, you will receive a welcome e-mail. Then, you can go online, explore the product line, and start your training. You may also build your personal website to sell products to customers and manage your business.

Just to clear up some things...

On a daily basis, I offer people an Avon brochure. Out of all of the responses I generally hear I love this one the best,  "I don't wear make up". That answer usually tell me how long it's been since they've seen a brochure. Well, let me fill you in...  Avon is not just about makeup! 

Through the years, Avon has evolved and here are a few of the things that make up Avon today:

Stretch Marks, anyone?

The sentence after this may be a little contradicting but... I have absolutely no problem with the stretch marks on my stomach. I don't feel bad about them and my esteem is not hurt one bit. I embrace them as a badge of honor. But of course i will have my children the rest of my life, God willing so I don't really Need the physical reminder.

The entire year and few months since I've been with avon, they've had creams for stretch marks (solutions and Anew) and I've sold it and heard great reviews. Nothing convinced me to purchase. Well, let me tell you a secret: The best way to know about something is to experience it first hand. So, Skin-so-Soft just came out with a new oil specifically for Stretch Marks, Discolorations, Uneven tone and Scars. I decided to try it for my stretch marks. I began using this product on Monday and i can already tell you that the color of my stretch marks on my tummy has lightened up a little. It's so amazing!!! I will give you another update after my second week.

This product is highly concentrated oil with nourishing vitamins A and E, chamomile, sunflower seed oil and phytol.

Spot Treatment

When I received my “what’s new” catalog a few campaigns ago, there was a NEW product that I was particularly excited about. This product is is Blemish Clearing Acne Body Wash by Clearskin. I was excited because I have been using the Clearskin Foaming Cleanser for my face and it did a superb job! I was so excited at one time, that I was going to use it for the blemishes on my body. I tried once but I realized I would run out of the soap quickly. Now I think you see why I got excited.  I am in my 5th day of using the product and I love the results I see so far.

It will take at least 2 weeks for me to see a drastic difference. If you have dark blemishes on your skin, I highly recommend this product! Check it out for yourself while it is at the low price of $5.99. You can also get the Clearskin for the face.

I am willing to invest in someone that is motivated, driven and destined to succeed!

I have a FREE start up kit to get your Avon business up and running. This is good through 7/18/11. This includes books, order book, your own website, support and some extra little free items from me :) WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE??? With Avon, you don't have minimum orders, no shipping fee, and you don't have to keep stock on hand. Earn 40% for the first 2 months!!! Plus you can receive a percentage off your sprint/t-mobile services, discounts to amusement parks, discount on car rentals, discounts on cruises, ect.

And please tell me why you want this opportunity and what you expect.

Why I became an Avon Representative

 I am an Avon representative/Unit Leader and I am looking for some women and men who are interested in starting their own Avon business. I began 5/26/10 and I love it!! I work full time and I have two baby boys, 1 and 3 years old. I started because It only cost $10 to start, I did not want to work a part time job on someone else's clock, i want my children to grown up and think that they should go into business for themselves and I want to give my children the life they deserve... so far one of them is in private school. This business is easy because everyone knows Avon. You do not have to be a sales person, people just have to know you have the book or website. I will also be here to help you grow as I grow.
