I get asked this question a lot and I’ll be straight to the point: the answer is yes! There is a variety of ways to be a successful Avon Rep and I’m going to share my experience with you. You may find that you’ll get different feedback from every Rep you talk to, and that’s really the beauty of the business! Being an Avon Rep means something different to each person, but with hardwork, determination, and passion for the products, you can make money selling Avon.
We frequently see posts on social media claiming that you can “get paid today!” and “make money while you sleep!”. Maybe there is an app or survey service that will help you make a quick buck, but for direct sales, these spammy posts are a turn-off. Yes you can make money in direct sales, but it’s so much more than a cheap trick. If you focus on building relationships, learning about the products, and sharing your knowledge, you can make money selling Avon. This article is based upon my experience as an Avon Rep since joining in 2015; feel free to learn more about me here!
Social Selling With Avon
I absolutely love the phrase Social Selling. It’s becoming more and more popular for good reasons. Avon is a direct sales company that teaches its Reps the value of customer service and social selling. Well what is Social Selling? It’s very simply, the process of building and maintaining relationships, both online and in the real world, to be the foundation of your business. When you take the time to know your customers, they will take the time to know your business. When you value your customers, they will value your business. This may sound simple, but with any relationship, it only works with a serious commitment.
I use Social Selling in every aspect of my Avon business. First of all, I focus on sharing Avon products, not selling Avon products. What I mean by this, is that when I get a new accessory to demo or I’m excited to wear my favorite lipstick shade, I share it on social media. For example, I’ll post a picture of me wearing the new accessory while getting ready for date night. Instead of writing, “buy this necklace for $20!”, I’ll caption the photo with “the perfect accessory for date night!”. By doing this, I’m focusing on my excitement that the new piece brings to my night instead of focusing on sales. That excitement is contagious!
I also share samples of new products so that my close friends and customers can try them too! Sometimes I get my hands on extra demos, which means that my vip customers can try new products before they come out. These actions build relationships AND my business at the same time. By sharing my excitement through social media, samples, and conversations, I create a sense of community and a social buzz that continues to build.
Make Money Selling Avon – In Person Sales
Well now that you know how much I love Social Selling, let’s chat about making money! Sharing your excitement for products can generate both online and in-person sales. Let me share with you the best ways I’ve gained in-person sales. The more you wear Avon products, the more people notice. Take Avon everywhere you go and the conversations will start happening. Set up a table at a local vendor event and meet other local small business owners. Share samples and follow-up for feedback. All of these actions can result in in-person sales and create a successful Avon business.
If you choose to run your Avon business this way, then you will be responsible for collecting, placing, and delivering orders. We have a Rep-only website that we use to manage our business and place orders. You’ll make 20-50% commission and you will build a customer base by traditional face-to-face interactions. Primarily selling Avon this way is profitable, but it requires a larger time and resource commitment than selling online.
Make Money Selling Avon – Online Sales
As social media continues to grow and influence our daily lives, we cannot deny the impact it has on our business. Attracting, retaining, and servicing online customers is very different from traditional customers. Avon gives us great tools to grow and maintain an online customer base. We have email services, Avon Social (a social media platform to manage online content), and our own estore to share with customers. Add great customer service to these great tools, and you can run a successful online Avon business.
You make the same commission percentages for online sales as you do for in-person sales, and the time/resource commitment is less. Online customers go to your personalized website to pay for and place their orders and Avon ships directly to them. You earn commission when the order ships and Avon direct deposits those earnings. It’s that easy!
Make Money Selling Avon – Leadership, Incentives, & Bonuses
In addition to making money by selling Avon products, you can also earn leadership earnings, special incentives (trips, products, etc), and bonuses. If you decide to build a team, you will earn a percentage of sales from your recruits. Avon values your mentoring and coaching by offering a generous leadership compensation plan. You also have the opportunity to participate in special incentives for exclusive vacations and hot products. If you excel at building a team, you will also earn bonuses as your team members promote to new titles. Overall, Avon offers a variety of income streams for your Avon business.
