Why Become a Reading Avon Representative
Avon is one of the world’s largest direct sellers. Being an Avon Representative means you’re selling an iconic global brand while running your own local business. With Avon, you are in business for yourself but not by yourself. Avon’s field management, as well as your fellow Representatives, provide mentoring, training and support every step of the way.
Three good reasons for joining Avon.
Avon has a presence in countries around the world and enjoys 90% brand recognition in most major markets. With the company’s incredible global reach, Avon Representatives sell four lipsticks every second.
As an Avon Representative, you would have the chance to sell award winning products from Avon’s world class R and D team. You’d have the opportunity to offer customers a broad range of products that appeal to a diverse consumer base.
Compelling Earnings Opportunity
There are two ways to earn money as an Avon Representative: (1) by selling products and (2) through the Sales Leadership program (selling products while recruiting others). The higher your campaign (selling cycle) sales are, the greater the percentage you’ll earn on those sales. Sales Leaders-Representatives who both sell and recruit, earn money based on their personal sales and on their recruits’ sales, with a similar progressive earnings structure applied.
Avon is innovating the direct selling industry, enabling Representatives to run their businesses and maximize their earnings as never before. The company leverages the most advanced digital tools – on the Internet, social media and mobile technology. A Representative’s business integrates seamlessly with the way people today connect, share and shop. This enhances both the selling and shopping experiences. Avon’s directselling innovations include:
- Customized social media environments for Representatives to reach customers and other Representatives.
- A personalized eBrochure widget to ensure that customers are never more than a few clicks away from ordering, sharing the eBrochure with friends and creating a viral sensation.
- Online training and sales tools.
- A new application for Sales Leadership Representatives to more effectively monitor their Representatives’ orders.
- “Intelligent ordering,” which makes it easier for Representatives to place their orders with Avon and ensures that they receive special product offers that are relevant to them.
- A widget which lets Representatives embed the latest Avon TV advertisements and videos into their own social media platforms.
Avon is passionate about giving you technology that does not depersonalize your relationships with your customers, ensuring that the core element of our business is still at the heart of everything we do. The best way to describe selling for Avon? High tech, high touch, highly rewarding.
Working as a Reading Avon Representative falls into 3 easy steps;
Online orders are placed directly by your customers. With your brochure customers, you will need to personally collect orders that have been placed. You then place your order with Avon which is delivered to you. You distribute to all your brochure customers and your online customers who have opted for delivery by you as opposed to direct delivery from Avon.
You collect payment from your brochure customers (online customers pay at the time of placing their order). You deduct your earnings (commission) You then pay Avon. Avon pay you at the end of each campaign for online orders placed by your customers.
How much can I earn?
This is really up to you. There is no limit to how much you can earn and depends on how much time and effort you put into your role as an Avon Representative.
There are elements to the commission structure as an Avon Representative. You have to achieve the MINIMUM ORDER VALUE (MOV) before the commission is paid to you. Once you have achieved the minimum order value you then receive £1 for every £5 (20%) of sales that you make. Once you achieve the HIGHER ORDER VALUE (HOV) you are then paid £1 in every £4 (25%) of sales that you make. This is the same for both brochure sales and online sales which are added together to achieve the campaign order value.
MINIMUM ORDER VALUE (MOV)
This is currently set at £90.00 – If your order to Avon falls below this figure you won’t receive any commission, so it is obviously worth your while to make sure your sales are always above the MOV.
HIGHER ORDER VALUE (HOV)
This is currently set at £170.00 – Sales between the MOV and the HOV attract a commission of 20% or £1 in every £5 of sales. Sales over the HOV achieve commission of 25% or £1 in every £4 of sales you make.
Please view the examples below;
Example 1: You make sales of £75 – You won’t earn any commission as you are below the MOV of £90.00
Example 2: You make sales of £120 – You will earn 20% commission of £24. You have sold more than the MOV of £90.00 but are under the HOV of £170.00
Example 3: You make sales of £200 – You will earn 25% commission of £50. Your sales are higher than both the MOV and the HOV
