I have just updated this review in order to include my Campaign 13 progress. by stompgal_87
I've just given up being a rep after doing it for 16 years. It's hard work but it#s worth it, if only for the friends you'll make. Most of my old customers are more like family now. :o) by Elysia2003

Just don't spend all your earnings!
Review of Avon representative by redpomme

Advantages: Flexible, first look at products, discount, meet new people
Disadvantages: Sometimes doesn't pay off, books are close together, have to pay for books, bags, samples

I have now been an Avon rep since January 2008, and for the most part it has been a good experience. After the first few campaigns you get to grips with the quick brochure turn around (3 weeks average, but closer together at Xmas) and the way that earning ... Read review

I used to be an Avon rep and found that by the time you paid for your books, it wasn't worth the time and efford. People just didn't return the books or they were left out in the rain so couldn't be reused. I agree with you, that the best strategy is if you have a big family/ friend base that will order from you. by murphypig

Advantages: Nice to meet people who lived in my area
Disadvantages: Too much messing about collecting money

My sister used to do Avon, but got bored so my mam took over. I dont think she makes much from it either - it's more an excuse to pop round to the neighbours for a chat in her case! x by pink_champagne
