Be Sure To Research the Company You Want to Work With
Most people who join Network Marketing Companies do so because someone asked them. They generally don’t do their due diligence to find out about the company before they get involved.
Many times, people are only looking for something to help them bring in some extra part-time money and aren’t looking for this to become permanent or the majority of their income.
Richard and I did exactly that. We chose our original company, Avon, primarily based on the fact that we wouldn’t have to do parties (we didn’t have the time) and the fact that we could do most of our sales online. I was only looking for a way to help pay for my square dance website and never thought I would consider leaving my day job for this company.
But things happen, and within a year and 4 months we had earned enough to pay cash for a brand new car. This was really a wake-up call for us. What would happen if we got serious? Well we did, and two years later I was “retiring” from my day job.
If I would’ve thought that was a possibility when I started, I might have been more picky about the company I chose.
I was lucky. I just happened to find the right company from the start. In fact, I later took a hiatus from my first company and tried a couple of other companies. Unfortunately, no matter how hard I worked, I couldn’t replace my Avon income in any of the other 3 companies we tried. And we gave one company 5 years!
Keep in mind that when you join a network marketing company, you are investing more than just your money. You are investing your reputation with your closest friends and relatives.
If the company turns out to not be working from a foundation of integrity, this could affect everyone you introduce to the company. You can replace money, but your reputation is harder to replace.
So let’s look at what you want to look for when deciding which company to choose.
1 – Is the company solid, and with integrity? Is it a quality product that’s going to be around for a while?
Those are important questions to ask and the answers are important. I would suggest you spend some time and research the company and the product to be sure it fits with your values, and that it’s got great potential for your business.
Avon has a rich history of empowering women around the world to live life on their own terms. Since 1886, women have been selling Avon as a way to give them the opportunities not available elsewhere.
Before women even had the right to vote, Avon’s founder, David McConnell, pioneered a new kind of selling that gave them the power to run their own businesses and earn their own money.
Avon has been around for more than 130 years. We’re still going strong, still helping people become financially free, and we’re not going anywhere.
Very few companies have been successful for so long, so Avon is obviously doing something right! 🙂
2 – Are the products relevant and reasonably priced?
You can’t build long-term residual income if the product or service only has short-term appeal. Always think long term. The product or service must appeal to your customers beyond today.
There is no doubt that the cosmetic industry is certainly one of the most profitable businesses today, and so combining direct selling with cosmetics promises a huge potential for success.
Cosmetics are a consumable product, meaning the products are used up and need to be reordered, which offers larger income potential than other products in the direct sales market.
The health and wellness category, for example, tends to perform well. With Avon’s Espira product line, they have a strong hold in this category as well.
Avon products are top quality products at value prices. They are products that people use every day. Since Avon has products that appeal to both men and women, there is also a larger demographic for our products.
Many other companies have great products as well. But take a look at their pricing and name recognition. No other company has the quality products at value prices that Avon has.
And I don’t believe any company has the name recognition of Avon. In fact, around the world, 9 out of 10 women know Avon.
3 – Is there any money in it?
Very good question! There’s not much point if you can’t make money, right? Look at what the others in the company are doing. If at least one person is making good money, then you know that you can too. But you’ll want to see that many people are successful.
Many Avon Representatives earn over six-figures with Avon.
As a new Representative, you will earn 25% on Beauty Products and 20% on Fashion & Home products. There is also a Pathway to Premier Program, which, if followed, will help you earn $3,250 within your first 8 campaigns.
There are also many people who sell Avon and don’t make money, but that is their choice.
With Avon, you get to choose how much money you want to earn. Sell a little Avon and earn a little money… sell a lot of Avon and make a lot… it’s really that simple!
4 – Can I do it?
Well that’s probably the most important of all! If you haven’t had a lot of experience in the type of business you’re looking at, you’ll definitely want to make sure you have a solid team who will be there to guide you all the way. You’ll want to be sure there is a Simple System in place that you can plug people into to grow your business. The better that system is, the greater your chance for success.
When you join Avon under our team, we already have a simple system in place to help you get started and making money right away. We believe that the key to success is to have a system in place so that anyone who joins our Avon team can participate in and that will help him or her build a strong business.
One of the benefits of joining our team, is we will Host a Facebook Party for YOU to LAUNCH your Avon business.
It’s really pretty simple really… We will do all the work, and you invite everyone you know to attend. And you’ll earn 40% of the sales right away!
We will promote YOU as a new business owner, and we will help you get new customers and maybe even recruits.
Your launch party is where you’re going to get your very first customers and sales, and maybe even some new team members. It will be the springboard towards growing a wonderful Avon business.
Your Avon business is going to take effort. Nothing is free in today’s world. But we teach you how to automate the basic tasks, which leaves you free to build your business.
Just imagine what would happen to your Avon business success if you have powerful systems – both online and offline – to help you achieve success and that you can share instantly to your new team members to help them achieve that same success!
