Are you thinking about joining Avon? The direct sales company for women.
Avon are probably one of the most well known direct sales companies around, they have achieved some incredible results and helped women all over the world achieve financial freedom and success. Avon originally began in 1886 as the California Perfume Company and was founded by David McConnell, who realised that direct person to person selling was far more effective than conventional methods.
The company became Avon Products Inc in 1936 and has since gone on to recruit over 5 million reps worldwide, expand into over 100 countries and turnover around $8 billion in sales each year. They are also listed in the major stock exchanges and are regularly featured in Fortune Magazines, top companies listings.
“You will definitely have credibility on your side by becoming an Avon representative.”
In 1955 they created the Avon Foundation which has donated over $500 million to address issues relating to breast cancer, emergency relief and domestic violence. Their head office is in New York and they also have a science and research facility in Suffern, NY with a team of over 300 scientists and technicians.
