    what is Avon any way? But one of the way to be a superseller is advertisement. You best advertisement method will be the people that have used your product.

      Avon sell beauty, promotes beauty, and builds beauty portfolio. Men isn't well inclined with beauty so they hardly can make it in the businesses. But it's nice to see men selling beuaty products.

    Our Avon lady is a man he comes rain or shine and is totally reliable. I don’t think he gets asked if he uses the products but I know he has a large clientele in the area, and gets regular orders from them.  And the ladies of the village are quite proud of their Avon Man

      If he's good-looking, women will be inclined to buy from him rather than a woman.

    Immaculately, fashionably groomed men are taken much more seriously than women when it comes to beauty products etc. Women really do pay more attention to them.

    I think it is hard to sell Avon anyway.
    I was an Avon rep for about a year and gave it up. My area (and friends and family) brought loads at first but the novelty wore off pretty quickly. I was struggling to make minimum order pretty much every campaign. I tried plenty of special offers, gave free samples and gifts (as well as the deals Avon advertised), but people just weren't interested.
    I think that the bottom line is that Avon products aren't that cheap. Bodycare, and supermarkets often do much better deals. Or maybe my problem is that I am not a hot male? tongue

    As much as I moan though, I love Avon products and still order them from their online shop (hehe). Just don't get my discount anymore sad

    I sold Avon for close on 3 years, and did very well with it. It's all about service service service. It was a very part time thing for me, yet I was outselling many reps that had been selling for far longer.

    My secret? Glycerine hand cream with me wherever I went. Meet someone new, squeeze some into the person's hand, leave a brochure.

    The call WILL come.


    And although I use(d) the products, I generally come across as a bit scruffy, but so what?
