How Do I Make Money with Avon?

Hello there,

Thank you for being here!  You may already be an Avon Representative, or you may be looking into the opportunity, I assume you are wondering, “How do I make money with Avon?”

As an Avon Representative you have the opportunity to earn multiple streams of income.  Every successful entrepreneur or business owner has multiple streams of income.  It’s like the old saying, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket!”  The more opportunities you take advantage of, the more money you are going to earn, and the more security you are going to have in your business.  If one area takes a small dip you still have other areas to earn from.

With Avon you earn multiple ways, (if you choose too).  You can manage your Avon business however you decide.  You can take advantage of all opportunities or only one!  It’s completely up to you.

The first way you earn money with Avon is through your personal sales. Customers will receive a new brochure from you every two weeks (per campaign).  The customer will select the products they would like, and they will submit their selections to you personally.Every two weeks on your “order date” you will collect and submit all your customer orders at once.When you submit your orders you will order your new brochures.When you deliver the customers order, you will ensure they have the next book in their order.The two week campaign cycle is great for our daily care product customers.  Naturally everyone needs shower gel, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, makeup, deodorant, after shave, cologne, and perfume, right?  Therefore as your customers products run out, they will need to replenish often.  This is your residual income with your personal sales!  Avon Representatives are at an advantage, our product is necessary, and runs out, which means your customers will come back! Based on the total amount of your order you will earn a certain percentage of the entire order (including your online sales).

For Example: a total order of 20 customers at $30 average order per customer gives you an order total of $600.  This puts you at the 40% earning level.  

40% of $600=$240 in two weeks (minus business tools)

Your Earnings Level: is based on order size, product category and sales achievement level, and applies to orders from your online store as well as YourAvon.com orders.

You’ll receive variable earnings, as shown above, on Beauty and Jewelry products, and fixed earnings on Fashion and Home products, which are indicated by the Variable Earnings symbol symbol in the brochure. Earnings on products with this symbol are 25% for members of the President’s Recognition Program and 20% for all other Representatives.

All products within the Avon brochure, Avon online, mark. Magalog, Outlet, Specialty or Novelty flyers, fundraisers, samples, sales tools and a portion of the price of Demonstration products (Demos) count toward Earnings Level. Starter Kits and recruiting tools do not count toward Earnings Level.

See earnings chart below:earning chart

You can even earn up to 50% earnings as a Presidents Club Member  ($10,000 in sales in an Avon calendar year campaign 1- campaign 26-see Blog Post, “Avon Top Seller-Presidents Club Program”)

See Presidents Club Earnings Chart Below: DEFINITELY WORTH ACHIEVING!PRP chart earner

You earn money when customers shop through your web store!  This also counts toward the total sales for the relative campaign. Each Avon Representative is given a FREE website at sign up!  You can find your web store address here (if available and within policy you can customize your web store address):web office 2

For example: Total brochure sales are $350.  Additionally, you have had $200 in sales from your Web store which gives you an entire campaign sales of $550 in sales.  Therefore. you are now earning at the 40% earnings level.  Without your web store sales you were earning at the 35% level which would be 35% of $450= $122.50, however adding the extra $200 in web store sales increases your total sales to $550 which gives you an earnings of $220.80 at the 40% earnings level! In summary your face to face sales and your online sales are added together for your total campaign sales every two weeks.  The total sales puts you at a specific sales earnings level! You decide how much you want or need to earn! It is all up to you, Boss!

The third way and most lucrative way to earn money in my opinion and experience is through, Avon leadership.  Simply sharing the Avon opportunity with others.  As an Avon Representative we not only offer state of the art products, we also offer a state of the art opportunity to start your very own business!

With Avon Leadership you earn in more than 1 way.

  • Every two weeks you earn a commission based on your total team sales
  • You earn Qualified New Recruit Bonuses
  • You earn Mentor Bonuses
  • You earn Title Bonuses
  • You earn Lifestyle Bonuses
  • See Leadership Earnings Chart Below:career earning chart.PNG

What is a Qualified New Recruit Bonus?

When you welcome a new team member to the business (officially sign up under you) and they place their first or second qualified order goal of $150 or more (within the Kickstart Program) See New Avon Representative Bonus Program-Kickstart Program Blog Post you earn a qualified new recruit bonus of $20 per new team member! (Unless you are a New Representative within your first 7 campaigns, that bonus is almost TRIPLED, $50 per qualified new recruit!) See New Avon Representative Bonus Program-Kickstart Program Blog Post

Lastly, as an Avon Representative you can build your business and give back to a great cause, with Avon Fundraising!

It is up to you as a Representative if you see fundraising as a “Money earner.”

When an Avon Representative registers a fundraiser it is automatically tagged, at the 50% earnings level of total sales no matter the amount.  This means between the Representative and the organization, you can decide which percentage of the earnings they would like to agree on.  I generally offer 40% as the 10% pays for flyers for the fundraiser, bags,  supplies, and other various materials and tools needed to run a successful fundraiser.  And….. of course your time, costs you money as well.

For Example: A total fundraiser sale = $5000.00.  50% of the total sales is $2500, this is the earnings from the fundraiser the other 50% pays Avon for the Product.  

Of that $2500 you have decided to give the organization 35% which equals $1675.00 for the organizationYou hold back 15%, for your time, materials, and business tools needed to run the fundraiser. You keep $875.00. 

In my opinion, when offering a fundraiser I like to give as much as I can to the organization without costing my business money.  This is why I offer 40%.

The biggest win in my opinion is of course giving back to a great cause, and the amount of new customers you will gain running a fundraiser.

When the organization is pleased, the positive word of mouth will surely book new fundraisers through you!

Check out the fundraising flyers offered in the slide show below from Avon! (some are seasonal and may change)  The organization can choose to offer 1 or all flyers to maximize sales!

  1. BE VERSATILE! DO IT ALL!  As an Avon Representative you are GIVEN an unlimited income opportunity!  It is simply up to you whether or not you take advantage of that opportunity!  No waiting for a raise or the manager/boss to say, “You are up for promotion.”  It is not up to anyone but you whether or not you will earn Big Bonuses, and higher commissions or not!  With Avon you can not only build a large customer base selling world class beauty and health and wellness products, you can also offer the Avon opportunity to friends and family, and start  your very own team!   As you build and grown your team, you can earn extraordinary bonuses, and commissions (biweekly) based on your entire team sales!  SO YES, YOU ARE THINKING CORRECTLY! THE BIGGER YOUR TEAM THE HIGHER YOUR INCOME! Again, you call the shots! With Avon you can sell your products face to face through the brochures, and online with your FREE website Avon gives EVERY Avon Representative, customers can shop with you 24/7 anywhere in the USA!  And GET THIS!!!  Avon offers your brand new online customers a one time coupon of 10% off their entire order when they register their email address on your website (use code WELCOME10 )!  It gets better!  Your website ALWAYS OFFERS FREE SHIPPING on their order of $40 or more!  Avon does all the work for you when customers shop online, shipping is all taken care of, and earnings are directly deposited (must opt into direct deposit)! You can give back and offer a variety of different fundraisers to clubs, organizations, and more with your Avon Business!  You can earn incentives, and FREE VACATIONS year after year when you achieve certain goals! Most successful business owners have multiple streams of income to maximize all income opportunities!  Avon gives you everything you need!  Be versatile! 
  2. BE SOCIAL! I always say, and strongly believe there is absolutely no growth in comfort zones!  Yes, believe it or not I AM AN INTROVERT!  However, I certainly cannot be successful and sell product or an opportunity, EVEN IF SOMEONE NEEDED IT, if I do not socialize!  You must show up everywhere you go!  What do I mean?  Start practicing, say hello to 10 strangers today in your daily routine, share your success with me below in the comments, I CANNOT WAIT TO HEAR!  Talk to the person in line next to you at the grocery store, talk to the cashier, compliment the women at the bank, talk to the secretary at the school when you pick up your children, wave at the bus driver when he/she drops the kids off, strike up a conversation with your neighbor that you still don’t know after living there for 10 years!  Get the conversation started!  Plant seeds everywhere you go!  Other wise you become the person no one sees, or hears!  Be memorable, and thoughtful, remember what people tell you, even if you have to take a note here and there so you remember!  Remember what they’ve mentioned and ask them how that is going the next time you see them!  They will appreciate your kind and considerate demeanor.   Begin creating and nourishing GENUINE relationships with people every where you go, and you will quickly see your network grow!  Once a familiarity and relationship is formed you will feel more comfortable offering your new acquaintance or maybe even new friend an Avon brochure, or recomend a product to them based on your new knowledge of what they may like or need! I don’t just mean face to face! Use technology and social media to grow your business!  It is called Social networking for a reason you know!  I think sometimes people forget that, and they simply post and scroll through ONLY looking at other posts!  STOP DOING THAT! Every time you get a birthday notification, wish them all a happy birthday!  Comment words of encouragement and kindness when someone is having a bad day, compliment them on their on their family photo, congratulate the graduate, wish speedy recovery to those that are not well!  Reply to people when they comment on your posts!  Do a monthly, “Who is celebrating their  birthday this month?” post.  Inbox them to send you their address for FREE birthday samples and a flashy birthday message in the mail!  Keep the conversation going!  The more your name pops into their mind and on their social media the more they will see and be reminded of you, oh and by the way your business!  Post recognition, and gratitude for customers that purchase from you!  People love seeing their name especially in a positive light!  Whats more, their friends and family on social media will see the post you tagged them in and this will strike their interest…. MORE CUSTOMER or TEAM MEMBERS!  It goes on and on, think of all the people your network knows that you don’t know, and how many people their network knows, and on and on! THEY WILL REMEMBER YOU!
  3. BE STRATEGIC! Push yourself even further!  Make a plan daily that will increase your lead bank! Ask 5 people TODAY and EVERYDAY, for their contact information, record their information in your phone for safe keeping!  I find asking for their phone number and/or Facebook name is most successful!  Follow up that evening or the next day, too much time in between meeting them and the follow up will tarnish the freshness of interest and your conversation!  It seems everyone has Facebook these days!  Don’t be afraid…… simply say something like, “I’ve really enjoyed connecting/meeting with you!  Why don’t you write down your contact info and I’ll follow up with you before the next order goes in, I have some awesome samples here you can try in the meantime!” 
  4. BE PERSISTENT! NEVER QUIT approaching new people,  we all, EVEN TOP TOP TOP sellers and sales leaders hear NO, on a daily basis, the Representatives that continue on, are the ones that are successful, you’ll never be successful if you quit.  Do not be discouraged, they are not rejecting YOU personally, it just may not be for them right now, but people and their lives change, and you have planted a seed!  I have had many customers and recruits order and/or sign up on my team years later, because their lives changed, their income changed, and they remembered me approaching them!  MOVE ON, do not miss the opportunity with the next potential customer or team member, because you heard a no!  
  5. BE EXCITED! Isn’t it exciting that you can create your own schedule!  Isn’t it exciting that you can earn as much money as you want, have the ability to achieve and go on all expense paid vacations, even multiple vacations a year after year, mentor and empower others to do the same, work from home, and so much more!  Isn’t it exciting that you get first dibs on industry leading, world class beauty and health and wellness products!  I thinks its THRILLING, and a HUGE opportunity for EVERYONE! Be excited and share the excitement in your daily routine, share the excitement on social media!  Share testimonials of the products you have tried and and the benefits you have received from the products and the business!  Be loud and proud of your business!
  6. BE AVON FLASHY! BE YOUR OWN AVON ADVERTISEMENT! BE A WALKING, TALKING BILLBOARD FOR YOUR VERY OWN BUSINESS!  You have your own business that LITERALLY offers something for almost every aspect of your life!  Why would you pay full price at a retail store for things like, deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, vitamins, makeup, skin care, hair care products, candles, jewelry, and SO MUCH MORE when you can get them at a discount FROM YOURSELF!  Wear your own product and I bet you will find people complimenting your jewelry and Avon products that you are wearing!  The perfect conversation starter and opportunity to offer your products and/or Avon opportunity!  Create an opportunity for yourself! YOU GOT THIS! Share your love of your Avon business and products!
  7. BE AN ACTIVE LISTENER AND SUGGESTIVE!  I often find a common issue in direct sales is that the direct seller is doing 90% talking and 10% listening!  If we switch those percentages, and listen 90% and talk 10% our customers will tell us exactly what they need and want!  We must also ask open ended questions that give the customer or lead an opportunity to share more than 1-2 word answers.  Be careful not to be directive with your questions.  For example, “Do you have dry skin?” The only way someone could answer this question is , “Yes” or “No.” Let’s try a more open ended version of that question!  “What type of skin do you have, and what skin care concerns do you have?”  This question needs to be answered in detail, they must give more than one word answers!  It gives them a chance to converse with you and share much more about their skin!  The more they share, the more material you have to work with, to then recomend products they can benefit from! In the first example, the Representative is too focused on getting to an answer so they can sell a product!  In the second example the Representative is simply trying to get more information about the customers skin, and LISTENING with out asking too many questions, or giving their opinions.  LESS TALKING MORE LISTENING!  The customers concerns will direct you to the right products to offer them!  The product will ideally take care of the issue they shared, and naturally they will be satisfied with the benefits and become a repeat customer!  Help your customers solve their concern, and they will return! 
  8. BE AN AVON PRODUCT EXPERT!  Daily care products are a gateway to a huge business!  I don’t know a single person without skin, and everyone bathes!  So everyone is your potential customer, and what is even better….. they will run out and buy more over and over again!  We are lucky enough to be in a business that offers products that everyone needs in their daily routine, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, makeup, deodorant, and above all, SKINCARE!! YAY FOR AVON REPRESENTATIVES!  This means you can offer your business to EVERYONE! Why would they go anywhere else when you offer word class innovative products, with personalized service at an extremely reasonable price! Know your products and their benefits!  Know them by using them!  Your personal and honest testimonial is your greatest selling tool! Avon even offers their Representatives a FREE Skin Care Adviser Quiz and Vitamin Quiz for their customers!  This tool allows the customer to answer a series of quick questions that will direct them to the best products for them based on the answers they provide! 
  9. AVON SKINCARE products are truly amazing!  In fact Avon’s ANEW Ultimate Supreme Advanced Performance Creme outperforms a popular department store brand that retails at $350!  Our customers price is $55!  That is just one example!  Once a customer finds the best skin care routine for their skin type and concerns, they can opt into, AUTO REPLENISH! Auto replenish gives customers the opportunity to automatically receive their products on a time line they choose!  They can save their card information on their account through your website and Avon automatically bills, and ships their products right to their door, no shipping cost when $40 or more!  Easy and convenient for both you and your customers!  RESIDUAL INCOME AT IT’S FINEST! 
  10. BE CONSISTENT!  The competitive edge that each Avon Representative has is their ability to deliver impeccable customer service to their customers!  Customers can have a personalized shopping service through YOU, their Avon Representative!  Know your order dates, and delivery dates.  Have a solid calendar that promotes efficiency, and consistent behaviors that your customers can rely on.  The day you submit your order, your new books should labeled and ready to share!  Time waits for no one, do not waste a single second of your full 2 week Avon selling campaign cycle!  Be sure your customers know your dates as well, never waiver from commitments you make with your business and your customers or team members.  If you do not take your business seriously, your customers will not either.  They will quickly learn they cannot rely on you! Imagine your customer is ordering a gift for someone, and they do not receive their gift in time, due to your inconsistency.  I’d imagine they will no longer continue ordering through you.  To create a residual income you must be consistent and reliable! 
  11. BE GENUINE!  Take a genuine interest in your customers and team members lives.  Get to know them outside of Avon, let them get to know you!  Ask them how they are feeling, stop in to say hello, have coffee or ice cream with them once and a while!  Gift wrap their products, get in tune with the theme for the upcoming holiday!  If Valentine’s Day is coming place a heart sticker on each invoice! Get to know their interests and hobbies.  Do NOT become a product focused business, be and remain a people and relationship driven business!  Create genuine long lasting relationships and the business will come, and stay! 

BONUS!

STAY HUMBLE!  ALWAYS REMAIN IN A STUDENT’S MIND SET!  Believe it or not you and I DO NOT know everything!  The more open we are to the right mentors and tools/materials available to us the more we can learn and grow and the more we can offer our customers and team members!  No one can drink from an empty well, a car cannot run with out gas, and you can not thrive in your business without learning and growing everyday!  Take advantage of those that have had success, reach out for ideas and tips.  READ, if you find an area of opportunity for you to grow, do your research and become an expert!  Never become STILL!  With Avon your growth is unlimited, and not just financially, your personal and professional growth is unlimited as well!

BUILDING: Average Order per Customer!

I would like to shed some MAJOR light on a huge money-making opportunity for YOU every campaign!  It is called “Average Order Size.”  
So what does this mean?
Every campaign you place your order, right?  If you take the number of customers and divide it by your total sales that campaign you will have your average order size.  Let’s use the example below to show you how to earn more money in your business with a few small easy changes!
Example:  Campaign 2 you have 10 customers and the total order is $200, therefore if you divide 10 customers by $200 in sales that is about $20 per customer.
Inline image 1
A $200 order you earn at the 30% earnings level!  30% of $200= $64 earnings for YOU!
Now imagine if you took a look at each order your customer submitted to you, and followed up with all friends and family each campaign and actually made suggestions for them based on what you know about them!  Imagine each customer order was around $30 a campaign!  Additionally, due to your impeccable and consistent following up and asking your current customers for referrals you now have 15 customers at $30 each!
15 customers times $30 each = $450 in sales which gets you to the 35% earnings level which means you would earn $157.50 that campaign!
Now lets take it up a notch, because you really want to clear debt in the new year and take over some payments with your AVON business!
Say due to all your up selling and product suggestions you still had 15 customers, but their average order went up to $40!
That is 15 customers times $40 average order which = $600 in sales and places you in the 40% earnings level which means you earn $240 that campaign!
OK we are getting somewhere, you are really learning how to cross category sell, and up sell, by getting to know your customers and what they need and like!
You now have 20 customers with an average order size of $50 becuase each customer is ordering the A Box you have suggested for only $10 with their $40 order!
This means …….. you have a campaign sale of $1000 and you are earning at the 40% earning level which is a whopping $400 in your pocket!  
Two campaigns a month = $800 in your pocket each month!  
What would you pay with that?  Mortgage?  Cell Phone bill?  Car payment? Groceries?  Day Care?
You see it’s all about YOU!  How YOU decide to manage YOUR business!  How YOU decide to reach out for tips and help from ME and through Avon U on www.youravon.com! All the resources are here to help you make the most out of your Avon business!
What is even greater is if you sell at minimum $400 each campaign for 26 campaigns you will be a member of the Presidents Club Program which locked you into 40% earnings no matter what your order size is!!  You also get invited to an exclusive Recognition Gala for Top Sellers Like YOU!  You get to order up to 3 of the same demo a campaign rather than just 1 !  And so much MORE!!
 
$400 in sales for 26 campaigns gives you $10,000 in total year sales which is the minimum requirement for President’s Club!  Take a look at the attached Presidents Club Information!
 
Don’t say it can’t be done ….. I did it in 9 campaigns with Avon, in fact my total sales were $15,928 for 10 campaigns!!
