I used to sell avon, and I would love to do something similar-- what other companies are there?

I don't want to go back to selling avon, what other companies are there?

I know that there is mary kay, but the start up is a little expensive...

thanks for your help.

BTW-- If you post ads for cash crate or anything like that you will be reported the second i see it.

Hi are you looking specifically for other cosmetic companies? There is Arbonne and that has a low start up cost $29 and Aloette but I don't know anything about that one.
I know you said the the $100 start up for Mary is expensive for you would you consider having a show to earn you start up? Just a thought since you mentioned it. Do you know a Mary Kay consultant if not and want to talk more about email me.
also other companies I like are Tastefully Simple

Have you thought of selling Betterware and Kleeneze products.
If you devote your available time to it you would end up with a very good earning potential, why not sell Avon again if you did all 3 imagine the results you could have.
I'm a firm supporter of those who chose this method of earning as most often it is a mum trying hard for her family and in this day that's becoming a thing of the past.
Mary Kay are far to expensive and when I've gone along to a M.J. morning I have felt obliged to purchase as its been a friend who's organized it. I don't like to be in such a position as this, personally party earning could potentially alienate you from some associates.

I have a representative who also sells Avon, and she recently showed me their business model and I was apalled! I could not believe the compensation plan and I really don't understand why anyone would do that.
As for Mary Kay and Tupperware, etc. those companies have all experienced hyper-growth. They were awesome in their time, but their large incomes have already been earned. Then there is market saturation.

I was like you, just wondering what home based business was something I could actually earn income with, not just income, I wanted something that was modern, and something that the general public was looking for.
I found that in health and wellness. I market only one product, but it is one that is proving itself over and over again.
Your largest market is always the baby boomers and what they are looking for now is health and anti-aging. This product really delivers, they are experiencing positive results. The compensation plan is by far the best I have ever seen, you start earning an income right away without jumping through all the usual hoops that Avon and others have in place. I have found this to be the best company yet.

I would love to talk to you about Purse Party. It's just like avon or mary kay except we sell purses and jewelry! You get paid 30% commission the night of your party and can earn an extra 10%! You can email me if you would like to chat!

Can't wait to talk to you! I know you will love Purse Party. Every woman loves purses and jewelry the combination at parties really sells itself!

by purseparty.comamber - 7 years ago

I know of several legitimate companies that are similar to Avon in that you would be selling products, there is Melaleuca which is a wellness company, Party Lite which is candle based, and Cookie Lee which is jewelry based. I would suggest Melaleuca simply because you would be buying products each month that you would regularly use in your household. They use only natural substances to create their products, things such as shampoos, disinfectants, candles, etc. They have a wide variety of items that you will always use. I personally don't work for them but am aware of someone who currently does, if you want more details, I can reach her for you? Let me know!
