My Avon Story
My Avon story began in January of 2008. I received an Avon brochure on my door with an opportunity to become an Avon rep for $10. I have a degree in accounting and have always loved working at different bookkeeping and income tax offices. However, I finally had to quit when osteoarthritis set into my hands and wrists. So when I received this Avon opportunity the wheels started turning in my head. Selling Avon would not require me to continuously use my hands or sit at a desk for 8 hours. It would give me much more variety. I also had a teenage daughter at the time who loved makeup and fashion. It was a no brainer when I learned I could get a discount on our beauty purchases.
I started out as many new Avon reps do by selling to friends and neighbors. We all know that they cannot buy every campaign. That is when I branched out by hanging Avon brochures on the doors of nearby neighborhoods. I always had Avon catalogs with me when doing my errands. I left books in laundromats, hair salons, dentist offices, schools and anywhere I went. Before long I started getting more and more customers. It was great! But I wanted more customers with less work.
With the many people shopping online, I started thinking this would be the perfect opportunity to sell Avon online. After doing some research on Google in 2010, I found an eBook that taught me how to get started building my own Avon beauty blog. The authors of the book offered me great free advice. They are awesome and I couldn't have done it without them.
Sell Avon Online Successfully
At first I was pretty green at writing my blog posts. I was constantly researching online how to make my blog better and how to get better SEO. My goal was to rank on the first page of Google for my Avon keywords. Since Avon requires all purchases to be made from our free Avon website, I redirected all my traffic from my blog to my Avon website. In 2011 I actually started getting some online sales. I was so excited! This encouraged me to work harder and harder over the next months.
My personal and online sales were doing VERY WELL! Then...............on June 20, 2011 I received a phone call that changed many lives forever.
Our Tragic News
A Nebraska sheriff called me telling me my son-in-law and daughter were in a tragic car accident as they were traveling back home to Colorado. I was in shock and couldn't believe all that he was telling me. My daughter and her girlfriend (who was in the backseat) were in critical condition and airlifted to different hospitals in SD. My 21-year-old son-in-law was pronounced dead on impact. They had only been married for 8 months AND my daughter was pregnant with their first child.
My daughter suffered from a traumatic brain injury and many other life-threatening injuries. My husband and I stayed with her throughout her recovery for 4 months in different hospitals. We are thankful to God for preserving her and her baby girl who is now 3 years old. What a joy they are to us! We can testify of God's mercies to us.
Thankful for Online Avon Business
Throughout all 4 months I did not do much Avon. However, my Avon online sales grew and grew. I was amazed! The checks from Avon kept coming in. We were so thankful for this extra income with all of the medical and travel bills we incurred. In 2011 and 2012 I earned free trips from Avon to New York and an Alaskan cruise. We also enjoyed a trip for 4 to Disney World in Orlando, Florida in 2012 which we took my daughter and granddaughter to. These were memorable times! Is selling Avon worth it? Yes, thank you Avon!
