10 Best Tips to Build A Successful Avon Business
Building a business of any kind is tough, and it’s no different if you’re looking to build a successful Avon Business.
You have a powerful business opportunity in your hands with Avon.
It’s one of the best-known companies in America where you can make a full-time living at a part-time level.
Growing your Avon business is pretty simple.
There are only 4 main steps:
- Prospecting for new customers & recruits.
- Getting a brochure (either paper or digital) to every customer every campaign.
- Following up with every customer you gave a brochure to every campaign before you place your order.
- Take the order, submit it to Avon and deliver to your customer, or send them to your Avon Online Store to place their order
And then Rinse and Repeat.
It’s really that simple. You just do these 4 steps over and over again, and you will have a strong Avon business.
We have our Daily 8 System to help you work on the activities that will help you grow your business.
The Daily 8 system is a proven formula
When followed consistently, the Daily 8 Plan will help you maintain the consistency required to build a thriving team and an exponentially expanding residual income.
Instead of working 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week, your goal is to capture 8 POINTS a day, 5 days a week for a total of 40 POINTS per week.
Follow this plan consistently for 90-days and teach your team to do the same. At the end of 90 days, REPEAT and then REPEAT again. This is your Daily Method of operation.
The real secret to your Avon Business success is that there is NO SECRET!
It simply takes a simple plan and the dedication and commitment to WORK THE PLAN consistently! That’s it!

Today We’ll Talk About the 10 Best Tips to Build A Successful Avon Business
People sign up to Sell Avon for many different reasons.
- Some want to be able to stay home with their children.
- Others want to pay for an exciting vacation every year.
- Some need extra money to handle an unexpected expense such as braces for their child.
- And some are looking to build an exciting, flourishing business.
If you’re looking for a business where you can get full-time benefits from part-time work, it’s definitely possible with Avon. But it does take work.
10 Powerful Tips to Build a Successful Avon Business
Here are 10 powerful tips to help you smash your business goals and get you the results you want.
1 – Be Serious
If you treat your business like a hobby, it will pay like a hobby.
Your business is your soul and not a mere hobby.
It starts with the right mindset.
And if you want success, you will have to be willing to make sacrifices.
This means spending more time investing in yourself and getting your Avon business (brochure) in front of as many people as possible.
2 – Don’t Treat Your Friends Like Business Prospects
Of course, your friends could turn out to be your most valuable Avon customers.
But that needs to be a natural process and not one you’re trying to force on them.
You can casually let them know you’ve started your Avon business and ask if they want to see a brochure. (If they say Yes, be sure to add them to your automated Follow-Ups).
To be clear, DO NOT EVER chase, beg, guilt, or even attempt to convince anyone, especially your friends to buy from you or join your team.
It’s not important that your friend buys from you. Either they are interested, or they are not.
There are lots of people out there who want what you have to offer.
3 – Use Social Media
Social media is like your ultimate relationship-building tool.
Whether you’re working on social media, or in face-to-face contacts, know that you will need to talk to a lot of people.
Social media allows you to invest in paid advertising and actively connect with those who want to hear from you.
Be sure to always come from a position of providing value. It’s not always about shouting, “Buy from me!” What can you offer them as you make the connections?
Start with any two platforms and stick to mastering them. For our business, Facebook and Instagram are good places to start.
TikTok is also a great place to start, especially if you’re going to create short videos.
4 – Find a Mentor
You need someone who has been there, done that, and is still growing.
Why? Because when you’re first starting out, there are a lot of things you’ll have to figure out.
Mentors know that and they also know what it takes to cut through the clutter and get stuff done.
They can help you focus on the right things to get maximum results with less effort.
If you have a mentor, great!
If not, be sure to join some of Avon’s Top Avon Rep Training Facebook Groups. There are many out there, but here are just a few of my favorites:
- Online Beauty Biz
- ONWARD! No Matter What! A Tribe For Avon Reps!
- Tuesdays with Theresa
- Avon Reps: Tips & Tricks for Reps by Team Nova
- AVON 101: Tips, Advice, & Help to Sell Avon
- And don’t miss Avon Representative Social Selling – This is a MUST!
These are just a few of the top Groups, in no particular order. There are also many others.
You can also learn a lot from this Online Beauty Biz Blog.
5 – Have a Growth Mindset
I talk about mindset all the time. It’s really important to your successful Avon business.
You have to be positive even if the odds are stacked against you.
You have to believe in yourself, not be afraid of failing, and keep pushing until you get to the point you want.
Most people give up when things don’t work out the way they thought they would.
Be different! Don’t ever give up.
Just keep working on that growth mindset, know what you want, and more importantly… know that you can achieve whatever it is that you’re working for.
With that attitude, you will achieve what you want!
6 – Be Consistent
Consistency is critical to a successful Avon business and getting the results you want.
Your Avon business is going to have ups and downs.
You’re going to run into things you need to learn to get over or around the hurdles that come up.
But that won’t happen if you don’t stay consistent.
The more consistency, the more results, and the more results, the more doors open up for you.
7 – Share Your Products/Services and the Avon Opportunity Every Day Without Fail
This might seem obvious, but it’s extremely common for Reps to focus on either selling products or inviting people to join their team.
But to grow a large successful Avon business, you need to focus on both, and that means talking about both aspects of your Avon business EVERY DAY!
8 – Automate Your Business Basics
Plug into our System.
When you automate your follow-up tasks, it can free you up to really focus on building your business.
It also takes the fear of following up away. Now you can get out of your head worrying about “being a bug.”
There are other things you can automate as well.
From scheduling posts to sending newsletters, order reminders, online tools can help you make sure that you are being consistent, free up time, and get really productive.
You’ll be saving time, making more sales, and the best part? You’ll be loving every minute of it.
8 – Learn the Products
You don’t need to know everything about beauty to Sell Avon.
But it never hurts to have a pretty good idea of what you’re selling.
Be sure to get on Avon’s training webinars and videos. Learn as much as you can.
Being knowledgeable and enthusiastic about your product is contagious.
Get people excited about what you have to offer, and they’ll reward you with repeat orders.
9 – Be Real
Be sure to be real and stay real.
Be genuine with your customers about what you’re offering and who you are.
Nothing turns people away from you more than when you advertise flashily or look desperate.
Explain the pros and cons, show the good and the bad, and let people decide for themselves.
10 – Prepare to Sponsor Team Members Into Your Team
Always offer the opportunity.
You never know when someone is looking for a way to make their life better.
It’s always better to turn your customer into an Avon Rep than to lose that customer to another Rep who offered them the chance to grow a business.
As your team grows, you will earn commissions from your team sales.
But that only happens after they succeed.
The more your team member succeeds, the more you will.
So, it’s super important to help them get off the ground and build their own successful Avon business.
It’s Absolutely Possible to Build a Thriving, Successful Avon Business!
It’s totally doable if you’re willing to put in the work.
Take note of these tips, use them to the fullest, and you’ll soon start seeing results.
Make sure to always be learning and implementing new ways of meeting more people and getting your Avon business in front of more people.
It will take some time, but you’ll find a successful Avon business can be rewarding and fun!
