Anyone sell AVON/mark?

Recommended Posts

Since I recently got laid off I have been trying to think of possible part-time jobs I could pick up to get some extra cash coming in while I look for a new FT job. I'm curious to hear from those who currently sell or have sold. Is it worth it, and how much time/money did you have to put in?

I have been selling Avon/Mark for almost a year....Honestly, I just sell to the ladies I work with. I don't go out there and hand out brochures to women I don't know. I would say if you are willing to do the leg work you can make pretty good money. I'm one of those that sell it and any money I make goes to buying stuff for myself. I didn't get into for the money....just for a discount on make-up.

 

Each campaign, you have to buy your brouchures, which depending on how many you get can run you about $8.00 for 20. The more brochures you buy the less it is per book.

 

I'm not going to go into full detail, because there is just to much. But if you want you can PM me if you have ?s or want to know some more.

I do as well! I actually just stopped with avon though because it was costing me way more money than it was worth.

 

Mark is pretty much free after the sign up though and you get a free webstore for people to order from so it's alot easier to promote whether you have a ton of sales or none. Plus, if people order from your site.. you get the commission and don't do a thing if they chose to have it shipped to them! Avon however charges I think 7.95 or so a month for the website... but if you have 1 or more online sale then it is waived. My problem was inconsistency.. between order brochures and the website fee if no one ordered that campaign.. I was throwing money away. So i'm sticking to just mark now.

 

It really depends on who you know and are exposed to and how much time you want to put into to determine how well you will do.

 

If you have any specific questions just PM me and I'd be happy to try to help.

I don't sell, but I mom has been a District Sales Manager for Avon for 20 years and my grandmother did it for longer than that. It is my Mom's job to find people that want to sell and to "guide" them. All the bs aside, there is a lot of money to be made selling. From talking to my mom right now there is a lt of $$$ to be made in recruiting and finding other people that want to sell. I know there is a $1000 bonus opportunity out there right now. I am not sure of all the details right now, but pm me if you want more details. I love Avon. I grew up with it. The career itself isn't for me, but I do have my own account and order stuff just for me.

 

A little OT, but I am putting some Avon in my OOT bags, they have bug guard wipes and a variety of samples, lip balms and so on that we will use!

mark is like the younger version of avon. same company, cooler products, geared at the under 35 crowd i guess.
