I used to sell Avon [probably going to get back in to it soon]. Here's a couple of ideas :

Use your online Avon site. It's free for a bit, then a few bucks a month but it will help a lot.

Promote your website in your emails by putting the link in your signature.

Many areas have local free classifieds online. Find a popular one for your area and make an ad stating that you sell Avon. Include your phone number if they want books and your website link if they'd rather shop online.

Write your name and number on the back of Avon books. Take a few to local hot spots that will allow you to leave them on the counter. I had gained approximately 20 customers who ordered out of each new book from just leaving them at a library. Not including other places.

when I worked there was a lady who came in and sold avon, now I don't know who sells it, and my mom and me love the speial gifts that they carry on the different holidays.  I don't care much for the make up but they do have real nice products.  if you were in my area you would have 2 customers eager to buy.  goood luck. :bunny:

If you let me know what product you are looking for, I would be glad to look at my website to see if it is available for you. Every now and again products are backlogged and are temporarily removed form the brochures until current orders can be fulfilled. . I could then assist you in how you could go about purchasing it. Sometimes all products are not available in all areas, but we can burn that bridge if we get there.

I've been selling for 4+ month and i've made steady income. It's all about being ambitious and going the extra mile to earn the money you deserve. It's all about investing the right amount in brochures and spending extra time to inform people about your business. It does not happen over night. Also do you know others that would like to sell? Have you asked your sales manager about the leadership program? Do you have the proper tools? Business cards? Are you enrolled as an Erep?

I know what your going thru with Avon.  I only buy from Avon for the majority of my makeup.  I love it and some of the clothes I buy.  But my lady is having a hard time making it and keeping her website up.  She has done this for over 20 years but I do buy less and less now since times are rough.

It is not easy, many say the money comes from the referals, cuz it is hard to sell,. my grandmother sold back in the day, and she lived off of it, but that is when most women stayed at home, and spent their husbands money, now adays, women will drive and get what they want.

If there was some way that FC members could make contact through email then she could email you her Avon website address and you all could order from her there.

What about the Facebook?? She could list her Avon website there and you or anyone could contact her there.

My wife has been selling Avon for over four years.  She doesn't have a lot of customers but she has steady customers.
If you're expecting to make a lot of money from Avon within a short period of time , that simply will not happen.  As with any business online or off, if you want to grow it, you need time and patience, and effort, a lot of effort.
Now, if you're  looking to make some decent pocket change on a daily basis that you can grow and perhaps use to invest in your Avon business, that can be done too without ever spending a dime. :wave:

I like for women to wear lipstick and makeup when I get to see them! Good economy or not.
