Long before home-based jobs became popular, Avon already had its direct selling representatives for their products but these reps were only women. Today, however, there’s a new breed of Avon reps who muscle it out by working from home: men. The financial rewards of being your own boss, accessible quality products, and flexible hours are attracting the so-called “stronger sex” to take a foothold in an industry that used to be women’s domain.
What is an Avon Salesman?
An Avon salesman markets and sells Avon products – which include makeup, fragrances, body lotions, anti-ageing creams, whitening soaps, foot scrubs, and other beauty and skin care merchandise primarily for women with several items for men such as deodorants, colognes, and after-shave lotions – directly to consumers who are nowhere a fixed location.
These sales and marketing methods are done through demonstrations, “party” plans that introduce the products to a group of prospective buyers, and other arrangements of a personal contact nature. One thorough definition would be: an Avon salesman presents, demonstrates, and sells Avon products to consumers in their respective homes or, if that isn’t possible, at their workplaces within lunch hours.
