Can Men Sell Avon?

Absolutely! The Avon opportunity is open to anyone, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. I'm not going to lie to you - women still make up the majority of Avon representatives, so if you are a man and begin to sell, you're going to stand out.

The reasons men join Avon are the same reasons anyone else would: to be your own boss, to be independent, and to work your own hours.

  • Fabrizio Freda: current Estée Lauder Companies

Tell Your Story

To many people, Avon conjures the image of a well-dressed woman in red lipstick and matching heels. Don't worry, that's intimidating to all of us, regardless of gender. The truth is that Avon representatives are as diverse as the products they sell. Being an Avon man, however, is definitely an attention-grabber. When making your pitch, whether it be to new recruits or potential customers, make sure you let them know why you're here. Do you want to make a statement and break the gender-bias, do you have a connection to the brand and the products - or do you simply recognize the opportunity? There is no wrong reason to make a positive difference in your life.

Husband and wife teams are some of the most successful Avon sellers!

Recommend Products You Use

Avon is most widely known for cosmetics sales, which don't interest many men. However, we also have an extensive men's fragrance collection, gender-neutral and men's skincare products, home goods, and more.

One of the best sells is the men's line of fragrances and body care - my personal favorite is Wild Country. Many people have fond memories of parents or grandparents wearing some of our most memorable fragrances.

Know Your Stuff

Assuming you're a man who doesn't already use makeup, you might find it hard to sell cosmetics and other Avon products. The easiest way to fix this is of course, to learn!

Avon University is a great resource for new sellers and can help you learns the basic for free. YouTube is another great resource if you're unfamiliar to cosmetics.
