Default Wife wants to sell avon products

My wife wants to start selling avon products. I am afraid that she is going to be her only customer and start spending crazy on avon products for herself and make no money whatsoever selling to others.
I am trying to discourage her from trying to get into the avon business.
Do you know anyone who made serious money selling avon products or am I right to say that it is just a waste of time and energy????

Wink selling avon

Hi Mustafa,
Actually, there are many people, mainly women, who have made a lot of money selling avon. Some have even become multi-millionaires. As for your wife, it all depends on how serious and motivated she is. Selling anything is hard becasue you will deal with a lot of rejection and this can discourage many people. But, if your wife is able to overcome the disappointments with rejection and just move on, she could do well. Give her a chance. Let her do her thing. You may be surprised!

I don't think that anybody make any money selling avon products anymore. My ex-wife tried it for a while and gave it up without having made any significant money.
It was just something to keep her busy and at the end, she got tired of it.

In my opinion, the market is saturated with Avon. I used to sell Avon, what I found were a few problems: Not enough support and training to help you succeed, the products were not enough of daily consumable products to make residual sales, and the products were not of higher quality or uniqueness to make people switch from regular store carried brands. I tried for quite a while and could not make enough to make it worth while, infact, I lost some money. There are people out there making it work though. There are Avon sucess stories, it might depend on the circumstances. You never know, your wife may actually do well. I did not. The thing is she won't know until she tries, I failed at Avon, but I'm very successful with my new venture. Let her find out if it's the right fit for her. Best wishes

Default Avon

I agree with Watkins4Life. Just because one person fails at something does not mean everyone will. I have met some people who are successful in Avon and some who aren't. I am surprised though Watkins4Life. I have a friend who is involved in Mary Kay and she said the same thing. Other than the trainings on how to put on makeup and workshop on makeup, there is not a whole lot of training; especially on how to market your products. Much of her customers stem from word of mouth. That would be hard for me to do. I was involved in an MLM, that sold health products, and we were taught how to market our business; including how to talk to people. I failed, I think, because I was not ready. I found talking to people too difficult and just found that I did not have the time to put out the flyers and do some of the other marketing methods. I tried advertising in newspapers and even that was very costly. I found myself spending way more than what I was making. After 4 years, I quit and I am now doing something else that, in a very short amount of time, is growing.

Avon practically sells itself. Once a woman sees the book, forget it! I helped a friend sell some AVon this summer. I sold $500 worth of a product. I just told people I had the book with me. That was it.

GailTravlel, are you still involved in Avon? If you aren't, if you had so much success, why are not still with Avon? I am just curious.

I have been a member of another product which too had a great response from the people and I was fairly successful in my endeavors to sell the products which were mainly cosmetics to both the men and women equally !

I don't think I would be very good at selling cosmetics. I am a believer that if you are selling a particular product, then you must also be using the products because you like them.

I don't wear too much makeup, other than lipstick and maybe an eyeliner and occasionally some eyeshadow for when I go out at night. I run every day and being so busy and active with my home-based business, my real estate investment properties and business and my full-time job, I just do not have the time to worry about makeup.

This is also the reason, after having long hair for such a long time, I had to cut my hair. Blow drying and curling my hair every morning before work became too much of a chore. My boyfriend thinks my haircut is cute. Yeah, he had better say that. LOL!
