In 2016, Avon celebrated it’s 130 year anniversary. It is one of the first companies to not only provide quality products for women, but also give them an opportunity to gain financial independence.
David H. McConnell, founder of Avon, originally was a traveling book salesman who used sample fragrances as an incentive to purchase his books. He quickly realized that the women, his main customer base, were more interested in the FREE fragrance samples then the books he was selling. So in a small New York City office, McConnell created the company’s first fragrances. “Since women had a passion for his products and loved networking with other women, McConnell was inspired to recruit them as Sales Representatives” (Avon Products, Inc, 2016). In doing so, McConnell provided women an opportunity to earn money independently in a time that jobs for women were scarce, especially women who were married & had children.
McConnell created a set of guiding principles that are still used today (Avon Products, Inc, 2016):
- Providing an earnings opportunity so individuals can achieve financial independence and enjoy all that comes with such an accomplishment.
- Recognizing everyone’s unique contributions.
- Giving back to the communities Avon serves.
- Offering the highest-quality products with a guarantee of satisfaction.
- Maintaining and cherishing the “friendly spirit of Avon.”
McConnell was a strong believer in that each person’s own success is dependent on that person’s own hard work & dedication regardless of the external circumstances:
“If we stop and look over the past and then into the future, we can see that the possibilities are growing greater and greater every day; that we have scarcely begun to reach the proper results from the field we have before us.” – David H. McConnell, Avon’s Founder (Avon Products, Inc, 2016)
Why I Said Yes to Selling Avon
In August of 2015, I was looking for a way to earn money & be able to do this around my family’s schedule. At that time I had 4 boys in school who were all active in extra curricular activities. I did the whole work full time outside the home for 3 years & as much as I loved the financial independence, I hated the guilt I felt when I would have to miss one of my kids events/activities & how tired/worn out I felt having to be on the go from the time I woke up to the time I went to bed.
So, when I came across an ad from a local mom about businesses that you can do at home, I had to check out to see if this would be something worthy of my time. Once I contacted her, she gave me a list of a variety of direct selling businesses that I could do at home. I couldn’t believe that there were so many & what was even more surprising was the variety of businesses there were. Not really have any experience in direct selling or any type of sales other then being a cashier, the long list did make it hard to choose from. So, I went with what I felt comfortable with, the one I all ready knew- AVON.
At my meeting, I met with my new friend & her leader to learn more about the Avon Opportunity. I learned about:
- 2 Ways to Sell– in person or online.
- 2 Ways to Earn– sell to your customers &/or grow a team of Avon Representatives.
- Incentives– how there are a variety of rewards an Avon Representative can earn through Avon or their team leaders. Incentives which ranged from free Avon products to trips to Mexico or Las Vegas. You can check out the current incentives at Avon Training: How to Earn Money with Avon
- Support– the knowledge in knowing I am not in this alone. I can receive help from Avon Customer Service, team leaders & even other Avon Representatives.
- Start Up Cost– for just $15 I was able to start my own Avon business & receive the New Representative Starter Kit which, at that time, included 2 full size products, 2 packs of different samples, brochures for next 2 campaigns & a promotional offer to give to my new potential customers.
I made a quick decision & joined Avon right on the spot. I have always been one that has to “sleep on it” when it comes to decisions like this but once I walked away from the meeting, as nervous as I was, my excitement of all the possibilities this opportunity could give me, I knew that I made the right choice not only for myself, but for my family as well.
