History[ edit ] David H. McConnell[ edit ] David H. McConnell was first a struggling door-to-door salesman who used to sell books to New York homes. In September he decided to sell perfumes rather than books.
Avon is a popular network marketing company, and one of the largest in the game. They may be the quintessential old lady cosmetics brand, but their status as one of the first major network marketing companies has made them the biggest name in the MLM space, rivaled only by Amway.
Product-wise, these guys are solid. Business opportunity-wise, however, the company is a little played out. Not saying it would be impossible to still make money with Avon, but there are certainly more sustainable options out there. Ouch, big hit since then. Their revenue was hit the hardest in North America, their home market Avon hails from New Yorkwhere their revenue in was barely half of what it was in How much does Avon cost?
Products Avon sells make-up, skincare products, perfume, home goods, and even accessories and lingerie.
Almost every single MLM out there overprices their products, but Avon actually has incredibly reasonable prices…and not just for an MLM, but even compared to drugstore brands. Some claim it works even better than DEET. Their skincare products have been praised for their anti-aging and moisturizing benefits.
Their insect repellent and sunblock are very highly rated. There are no reported side effects associated with Avon products. Compensation Plan Avon is one of those rare MLMs that allows you to make an OK supplemental income on selling alone, without ever recruiting a single team member.
In fact, many Avon Sales Reps do just that. Once you start recruiting a team, you open up a wider range of earning opportunities, from team commissions to rank bonuses to cars and vacations.
However, the vast majority of Avon reps make only a few hundred dollars a month, if that. Even if they manage to stay afloat, the sale of their entire North American operations proves that the company will never be the same again. After a while, being the oldest player in the game stops being an advantage and starts being a disadvantage.
On top of that, the fact that they follow all the rules better than that kiss ass you always hated in Kindergarten might win them brownie points with the SEC and FTC, but it might also be making it difficult for them to compete in a world filled with MLMs that bend and break the rules to such an extent that they find themselves under investigation in less than a decade see: TrivitaBioceuticaor Vemma.
Even the brightest stars die out eventually, and Avon is flickering.This is a list of companies which use multi-level marketing (also known as network marketing, direct selling, referral marketing, and pyramid selling) for most of their sales..
