Many times people will consider becoming an Avon Representative, but often dismiss the idea because of the thought of having to invest money for a starter kit turns them away. Or the thought of having to “sell” something sends shivers down their spine. Why is it that when people think of selling Avon, that it has turned into a negative action instead of a positive one?
Here are some myths and truths about Avon to take into consideration if you are thinking about becoming an Avon Representative.
Myth 1: Avon is a scam. You end up owing money to them rather than making money.
FACT: Avon is NOT a scam. Avon has been around for over 130+ years; most “scam” companies don’t last that long. Also, if you manage your bills wisely, you won’t end up owing anything to Avon. Avon has it to where you make money based on how much you sell. The system works like this:
- You have customers who order from you and give you a total order of $500.
- Avon gives you a discount (also known as your earnings) based on your order size. For a $500 order, you would earn 40%.
- Avon will charge you $300 for your order (not including tax or shipping), and you EARN $200.
- You have customers pay you the FULL PRICE listed in the brochure for products.
- You collect all $500 from customers, pay Avon the $300, and keep $200 as your earnings/profit.
Myth 2: The starter kits are too expensive.
FACT: The starter kits are to help you build your business. When you start a new job, you have to buy things like non slip shoes, work uniforms, etc. With Avon, the cost to join is as low as $25. However, the choice to invest MORE in your BUSINESS is up to you. Keep in mind, this is a BUSINESS investment, and for $25, that’s pretty cheap!
Myth 3: No one ever buys from you. It’s a waste of time
FACT: The only reason no one would buy from you is if you don’t put any effort into the business at all. It takes some time to build this business, but it is well worth it if you keep at it.
In order to have customers buy from you, you need to follow 2 rules:1) MAKING CONNECTIONS and 2) GETTING CONTACT INFORMATION.
When you build a relationship with your customer, get to know them, ask them questions, and so on, you are making a connection. This helps the customer learn to TRUST you as an Avon Representative. Lastly, getting contact information allows you to FOLLOW UP with the customer, letting them know when you place their order and seeing if they have any questions.
Myth 4: You can’t make any money with Avon.
FACT: THIS IS A BIG FAT LIE! You CAN make money with AVON, you just have to WORK for it. Build your business everyday by passing out brochures and collecting contact information from everyone you come in contact with. Remind customers your order goes in soon and you would like their email or phone number to let them know when your order goes in. The more you continually build, the more your business will grow, and the more MONEY you will make. You can’t make a FULL TIME income treating Avon like a hobby. Get out there and build it BIG!
