If you are looking for a great home based business opportunity and think that the world of beauty and cosmetics might be the answer you are looking for then you can't go past the world leader in cosmetic direct sales - Avon.
You probably have even used one or two of their products already and so know how universally loved many of their range is - from the popular bubble bath, the iconic Skin So Soft Bath Oil and now the innovative Anew range of skin creams.
But is it a good opportunity for you? I mean what you really want to know is how much money can you make selling Avon, am I right? Well that's good because I'm here to tell you exactly how much.
Well, except I can't really, tell you EXACTLY, because everyone is different. You could make $1000 a year, or a month or even a week. Or you could even make nothing at all. It's really all about the effort that you put into it - like everything.
But I can tell you that the commission generally ranges from 20% to 50% depending on your personal sales level. And of course you can increase the amount of money that you earn also by building a team of representatives under you that you will earn a small commission from their sales as well (up to 12% in fact).
There are also lots of different performance bonuses from holidays, cars and even big cash payments - although you need to be doing exceptionally well to get those, but it's nice to know that it's possible. Even the big earning representatives at Avon had to start right at the beginning just like everyone else.
At the very low end, you could just sell to friends and family and make enough to keep you stocked in all your favourite Avon products. Or you could decide to make it a really home business and actively seek out customers who are willing to place orders with your directly, or from your representative website online.
Now that Avon has gone online, it's a much easier way to get people to buy from you, all you need to do is give them your web address and Avon will handle the order and shipping for you. Of course you still need to do the groundwork to find the customers so that they know your website address - but having a website makes things a lot easier and frees up a lot of the time spent packing orders and delivering them yourself - time that you could spend finding more customers and making more money for yourself.
So whether you want to build a huge Avon empire by building your Avon downline, or just want to sell to your friends and family (or even just buy for yourself) it's possible with Avon.
