How To Sell Avon Successfully (No Excuses)


We all have great excuses but here is how to sell Avon online successfully by overcoming those excuses.

I don’t have time.

Time is precious. And when you’re a parent or student, there’s not enough hours in the day. Let me give you some reasons why this won’t matter when you sell Avon online.

  • Avon has a social media app that posts your estore content, selfies, order photos, personal buys, inspirational quotes, and more. It takes about 5 minutes a week to set it up and tadow. Your posts for the week are done. What makes it even nicer is that ALL of the content (minus the selfies) are already within the app. You choose your style and what you want your customers to see. It’s really that easy to sell Avon online only with these kind of tools.
  • You choose the time you want to spend. If it’s a busy week, then you don’t take any orders. Just put your personal Avon order in. As long as you are at least placing your own personal orders (makeup, skincare, etc) you’ll earn commission.
  • Avon also offers a lead generation service. If you sign up a sister or best friend to gain access to leadership perks, it’s worth it!

I have to talk to my husband about it.

  • Tell him you’ll be spending 60%-80% less money on the household things you normally buy. Soaps, lotions, kids bath wash, shampoo, and your makeup and skincare. He’ll say yes.

I’m shy and don’t like “selling”.

  • This is my favorite because I started out the same way when I first started selling Avon. But I realized something that you will too. Everything that Avon carries, people already buy! Think about your friends and how many times they make trips to Sephora, Ulta, or buy beauty products online. If you use your samples (they’re so cheap too) you won’t have to “sell” anything at all. Ship out your samples, and let the quality of Avon do the rest. In time, you’ll fall in love like the rest of us and the conversation won’t feel like “selling” Avon anymore. It honestly turns into girl chat. 

I don’t like being in the spotlight.

  • Often times being shy also comes with a fear of being viewed by others. I know because I’d much rather be helping and supporting from the rear. The beauty of this Avon business is that the product sells itself. By using your Avon tools, you’ll gain confidence in so many areas of your life. You can speak with any Avon Representative and we will all tell you the same. There’s something about being the facilitator of your own business that’s a feeling like none other. Avon offers tuition reimbursement. general contractor insurance, and the tools to become a Certified Anew Skin Care Expert. All of these perks become available to you after you begin an Avon business. (For a limited time only, you can start today for $10!)

I’m afraid of failing.

  • I’m not going to sugarcoat this one. Your Avon business will take work. You can start out using your business to buy all the things you need at a discount and just enjoy the quality of Avon products.  If you choose to go into leadership/mentorship, the work begins. There are a few easy things to do that require minimal time to get your business started. Read more here for how to sell Avon online successfully. .

How To Recruit Avon Reps Quickly


Check out some tips to recruit new Avon reps quickly.

1.) If a client has an order that is more than $25, and contains at least one of the items that ship in the initial business kit, offer the opportunity to become an Avon Representative. Using Avon for personal use is how many of us started in leadership.

2.) If she’s buying Skin So Soft Oil. The Avon Quick Start kit actually comes with a full size Skin So Soft body and bath oil and sometimes that product sells for $19.99. I’d be hard pressed to think she wouldn’t spend $25 for her business kit that comes with even more.  Plus, she’ll not only receive her order but let’s throw in lipstick samples, Anew samples, eyeliner, and more.  The Avon Starter Kits are valued at $300+ in product alone. We know it’s a great deal, it’s just up to us to explain it well. Once she makes her first personal purchase and sees the savings, the leadership inspiration bug is planted.

3.) If she loves Anew but cannot afford it, this is a great opportunity to offer business details. Offer the $25 Avon Starter kit and explain to her that one of the Avon representative benefits is being able to always shop from the last 3 campaign sales. It doesn’t hurt that the Avon Starter kit also comes with Anew samples! She’ll never pay above what she can afford for her Anew regimen again.

4.) If she loves makeup and skincare but isn’t currently employed. A client that knows the struggle of healthy skincare and beauty on a budget, is a perfect candidate for leadership.  Once this client sees how much she’ll be saving on her personal use products from Avon, you’ve become a part of an inspiring story if you mentor her into leadership. And if not, you’ve given her a backdoor portal into quality beauty products at a fraction of the cost.

5.) Run an ad on Adwords in your local area. Avon USA dominates the Google search engines when someone is looking to sell Avon. By running a personal ad for your business using your city name, locals are much more likely to click on your ad instead of Avon USA. I ran an ad and grew my team by 3 recruits in one week for less than $20 in ad costs. Avon does have some rules about running ads but they’re very easy to follow.  Contact me if you would like to get more information on running an Ad for Avon recruits. 

6.) If she asks you how much you make, she’s interested in the opportunity. Look for those key words and special interaction with customers when you’re dropping off brochures to small businesses. It is estimated that more than 50% of Americans will be working from home within the coming years. This opportunity is a wonderful way for anyone looking for a part time job to get their feet wet in sales, marketing, and editing a website. Explain how Avon U walks new Avon reps through the training process and how she can also become an Avon certified skin consultant.

7.) If you have a friend who is an MUA or a beauty enthusiast, ask her to join so that she can purchase samples for her business. Avon skincare and lipstick samples are very inexpensive. The value in having samples is important for clients who are hesitant about buying new lip colors and shades. Samples are extra important for those with sensitive skin who need an Avon “tester” before going all in.

8.) Plus size women looking for staple fashions at a reasonable price. Avon has such a wide array of representatives and clients, young and older, bigger and smaller. Flipping through the Avon brochures, you can see how many of the latest trending fashions come in plus sizes. Don’t forget the lingerie section as well for undergarments. These items are tough for some plus size women to find. Show her how having the power to order from her back office will save her so much money and time shopping for her fashions. Once she joins, direct her to this Avon Facebook group. With almost 2K members, ladies enjoy posting their Avon Looks of the Day.
