In This Together – Could Avon Be Helping You??

In This Together – Could Avon Be Helping You??

Many people bash Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) and slate them for being ‘Pyramid Schemes’. The way I see it is everyone has a boss in most jobs, how well you do that job affects the ‘boss’ position and their income. During the lockdown due to Covid-19, more and more people are wanting to work from home. Being able to earn if they have lost their job, home schooling children, even having a mental focus during a difficult time is important.

Where many industries are slowing or even closing, Working From Home is thriving. I am able to run my business from the safety of my home, sharing posts on social media and sending a digital brochure to friends and family. Those few simple things ensure I can earn during a difficult time.

What is Avon doing?

Avon have supported reps ensuring we can still earn using and providing digital tools. We are able to earn from the first £1 sale and have customer orders delivered directly eliminating the risk to ourselves as well as customers. Earnings go into the bank weekly to help with bills and purchase food, plus having discounts on our own products is clearly a perk and helps keep expenditure down. Avon even gave each active rep a FREE bottle of the NEW Moisturising Hand Gel to help keep us safe.

It isn’t just reps Avon have been helping –

  • Avon are donating £150,000 to the charity Refuge who are desperately in need of support. Domestic violence during the lockdown is predicted to rise dramatically. The BBC stated there had already been a 25% increase in calls to the National Domestic Abuse Helpline by 6th April – https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52157620
  • Avon have donated £443,000 in both cash and products to both NHS staff and Refuge. Many reps (and their customers) have also donated products to their local hospitals and NHS staff too.
  • Avon have donate 10,000 care packs to our NHS heroes on the front line, including hand creams, foot oils, pillow mists for relaxing sleep and much more.

At this point, I don’t think I could be prouder of being part of the Avon team. Helping support people in their time of need, be it heroes on the front line or helping reps keeping food on their table.

Avon may not be everyone’s dream job, but for a limited time Avon have made our basic start up kit FREE (usually £15). This means anyone can access Avon, having the opportunity to earn from the safety of their homes. Next time you hear someone mock Multi-Level Marketing or similar, please remember who has helped provide so much support during an awful time.

#StayHomeSaveLives

Safety Comes First…

Here is my first blog on my new site. I wondered what would be the best topic to start with – many people say to start at the beginning (which does seem like a good place) but I think that tale can wait for now. Maybe I should start by discussing new products or even the new site in general HOWEVER it’s spring 2020 and so there does only seem one sensible and obvious place to start – COVID-19.

I hope everyone is well and safe – your family, friends and loved ones are all healthy and secure during these unprecedented times.

Within a short space of time we have gone from being able to leave the house freely – going where we want, when we want, for whatever reason we want… to stuck at home. Many things we classed as pivotal to our lives have been put into perspective – I never knew that toilets rolls were a form of currency. Sales of Avon handwash and handcreams have increase so much, handwashes increasing from 10,000 sales every 3 weeks to 34,000 a DAY!!! Toiletries and lounge-wear, along with pyjamas, pampering products and hair dye have been very popular.

What Have Avon Been Doing?

Avon have brought out a Moisturising Sanitising Hand Gel, (64% alcohol). This product has gone in the space of a few short from a non-existing product to readily available. A great and effective product which is already proving to be popular.

People have very mixed feelings about Avon, and about Multi Level Marketing (MLMs) in general. However I don’t think in my time at Avon, that I have been as proud as I currently am. As you can see in the image below, Avon are working hard to support everyone in the current situation. Donating money and products to charities plus helping the NHS staff too- #ProudToBeAnAvonRep
