Shy people can Sell Avon too!


Although you may not be the LOUDEST salesperson out there, you may in fact be the most prepared. 

     Not ALL shy people are technically “SHY”. Some may be considered introverts rather than “SHY.” Introversion is a personality trait. It refers to how you energize. While extroverts energize by being with other people, and exchanging ideas, and talking to think, introverts energize in solitude, have rich inner worlds, and think before talking. On the other hand, if you are stuck at home watching Netflix and craving social interaction but paralyzed with the fear of introducing yourself to new people, you’re probably just shy. Can you be both? Absolutely! But, because introversion isn’t going anywhere, it’s best to tackle the shyness.

Here are 7 tips for success in building your Avon business (Even if you aren’t all that into getting out there and talking to people)


Avon products have been around for over 130 years and still going strong! People LOVE our products because of the quality and so should you. (Being an Avon Sales Rep and all). Sample some of the products yourself! Wear some of your favorite fragrances, or even some of the clothing line. When someone compliments you on your appearance or fragrance, this allows you to immediately bring up the fact that, “Hey thanks! This is AVON!”


If at all possible, do as much research as you can on the product. Say, for example,  AVON Skincare. Avon’s Skincare Training Clinics and Online Training Classes are a great tool to help you prepare for understanding what skin type is best with what skin cream, lotion, cleanser, etc. Google is a very powerful tool and if you have the Internet at your disposal, then USE it! If you are unsure of a product, the best way is to research it! 


Understanding your customer requires analysis and problem-solving. Here are two questions to help you decipher who your customer is

  • Who is my customer? (Age, demographic, gender)
  • What type of products serve my customer’s needs? (Do they usually purchase skincare, makeup, bath&body products?) 

It’s important to narrow down who your target customer is, so that you can one-on-one relationship with that person. It becomes a more specific conversation, instead of seeing what sticks, and that’s crucial for the introvert personality.


This could mean pulling out a script and reading lines over and over. (Boring!) OR you could try rehearsing with say a family member or friend about Avon products. Being able to genuinely converse one-on-one with someone is so much easier then reading lines. They can offer feedback, and also it will help you in building up your momentum when you actually go out there and–dare I say it–converse with strangers! 


Perhaps one of the best tools in your arsenal is the ability to listen actively. One thing I’ve found out is that customers LOVE to talk about themselves. Let them talk! Subtly interject questions that guide them down the path to choosing your product.I guarantee you that if you listen long enough and subtly guide, you’ll find an opportunity to solve the customer’s problem with your products.


Now that you have a customer, use your desire for long-lasting partnerships to keep that relationship strong. Sometimes, a person isn’t ready to buy from you. Use that as an opportunity to build trust with the person. Keep up with them on social media, send friendly emails, and stay in touch. One day, that relationship may be profitable.


You are a salesperson, but avoid the idea of selling. Instead, become a facilitator. Let your desire for authenticity inform your approach.

You’re not selling. You’re offering useful advice.

Because you’ve listened to and studied the customer, you know their needs. You’ve built a relationship so that the customer can trust you when it comes time to make a purchase. Close the deal! Let the customer do the talking in the end. Avon has something for everyone, and chances are, your particular customer knows his/her needs thanks to you!
