Avon Wants More Men As Sales Representatives In UK

May 26, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Avon is recruiting more men as sales consultants in the UK. Men seem to be good in selling cosmetics and other Avon products, with Fife-based Avon sales leader Tracey Eydmann saying it is maybe because men have an idea of what women want. Avon sales representatives receive a 25 percent share on sales higher than £150 per month, and the company also offers incentives and bonuses for sales leaders managing other representatives and recruits. Avon reported sales decreased to £313 million in 2011 from £329 in 2010; however, the company said pre-tax profits rose from £4 million to £25.5 million during the same period. Avon's male representatives are part of a trend in the UK where more people are choosing self-employment with multi-level marketing companies, which contributed £1.5 billion to the UK economy in 2012, according to the Direct Selling Association.
