Avon’s main sales tool is our brochure
In South Africa, we produce 12 issues of the brochure every year which offer a wide and contemporary selection of beauty and related products at affordable prices.
The Avon representative shows the brochure to customers in their homes, at work, at social or leisure activities or to their friends and family. The representatives then send the orders to Avon and the products are delivered free of charge directly to the representatives’ homes.
Our people and our community
In the workplace, diversity is valued and supported and we aim to help staff achieve a good balance between their work and home lives. This has led to Avon being listed as a Sunday Times Employer of Choice in recent years. As an employer, we believe our people are our greatest asset and we encourage and reward outstanding performance.
In the sales field, our representatives and sales leaders rely on their own interpersonal skills and our excellent products to forge lasting relationships with their customers. Our independent sales people enjoy flexible earning opportunities while our customers are able to select and order products in the comfort of their own homes.
Over the years, the relationship between customer and representative evolves into one of communication, trust and understanding. Representatives and sales leaders get to know their customers’ needs and respond with real personal service.
Creating opportunities for our representatives and sales leaders is the very essence of Avon and the single most important factor that sets us apart from other companies.
