A devoted Avon user since she was a little girl, Dena from WorkingPoint decided to learn more about AVON’s business model, why these great independent sellers choose to use WorkingPoint, as well as some insider information on what great AVON products to buy. The following is her interview with WorkingPoint user and AVON independent seller Jackie Cumberbatch:
WorkingPoint: Why did you decide to start your own business working for AVON?
Jackie: I like the fact that Avon has been in business for a long time. The name speaks for itself. I did my homework and I felt that AVON was the best choice for me.
WP: What’s your favorite and/or bestselling AVON Product that you would recommend?
Jackie: My favorite AVON product is AVON Basics Care Cocoa Buttter Lotion. My family and I both use the product. We like the texture, and scent of it as well as the price. The best selling AVON product is their Skin So Soft line. Among my customers the Skin So Soft Original Bath Oil is the favorite product of that line. One of my customers loves it so much that this is her main purchase. I have another customer whose husband uses it and wouldn’t be without it. I would recommend both these products.
WP: What’s the best part of working for yourself?
Jackie: I am able to set my own hours and the earning potential is unlimited.
WP: What’s one piece of advice you would give to others people running their own home based business?
Jackie: Don’t limit yourself or depend on family and friends for support. Most of the customers that I have are not related to me nor were they friends prior to purchasing AVON from me.
WP: How did you hear about WorkingPoint? Why did you decide to use it? What’s your favorite feature?
Jackie: I found WorkingPoint while searching the web for an easier way to bill my customers. I found it easy to use. My favorite feature is the calculation of sales tax. Prior to using WorkingPoint I manually prepared invoices and that process included manually calculating the sales tax. It was very time consuming and at times very frustrating. With WorkingPoint I just have to enter the information using my computer and WorkingPoint does everything for me.
WP: Thank you Jackie! How can people get in touch with you to purchase products? Anything else they should know about AVON?
Jackie: I have been an Independent Sales Representative for AVON for about 2 years. I enjoy it and I have met some very nice people. It is a good way to earn extra cash and for some people it could turn into a career opportunity. Interested purchasers can visit my website at www.youravon.com/jcumberbatch.
