Avon Tips For Selling Right From Your Bed

I like to sell Avon online from my bed and connect with parents like me. Sometimes I'm watching TV at the same time too.

Sell Avon online from bed. Sounds weird but that’s why I love my Avon business. Find out more about me and how I do it. 

A Word From Nicole Mae


Hi and welcome to my little Avon corner! Just an update…I recently started a new business venture with blogging online. I’ve always loved to write which is why I enjoy blogging so much about my Avon. If you find joy in doing something, anything, no matter what it is…try and find a way to weave it into your passion. xoxo, Nicole

My bed and I featuring, Avon.

After 2 years of being an Avon rep, this is my “selling” weekly routine. 

I hate that “selling” word so much that I wrote about why I hate selling Avon a few weeks ago. I’d like to think it was a pretty good read so you can check it out.

After making dinner, doing some laundry, and going over homework with my daughter, it’s time for her to get to bed. We say our prayers and I exhale. Any parent will understand how that exhale feels. Now it’s coffee and blogging time. 

With my coffee in hand, I either lay across the bed and catch up on some shows and start sharing Avon posts to my pages. While I’m laying there, I come up with a great blog title idea and brainstorming something my readers will enjoy.

If the idea hits me, I get up and start blogging. If not, I typically fall asleep next to cold coffee. But it’s my business so that’s ok right?

I do most of my best work late at night. If you’re not a night owl, you might jump on your phone in the morning and do the same.

Having Your Own Business

The big takeaway here is that when you have a business you’ll incorporate it into your every day life. Clocking in on the day job is robotic. But working your business on your own time is a completely different feeling.

Become an Avon Representative in Campaign 5 and sell Avon online only from your bed as well.


When you sign up for Avon, you actually get to choose how to run your business without telling a soul. I don’t like pushy people so this was a win-win for me.



How to work your Avon business and sell more Avon.

I post about the Avon products I love on Instagram, and throw in a few selfie photos and things going on in my life. From Instagram settings, those posts automatically copy over to Facebook, Tumblr, and Twitter. I currently have about 60K monthly viewers on Pinterest and the number is growing. All in all, it takes about 1-2 hours a week to start seeing results and generating sales. Canva Pinterest graphics has been a huge help!

Does the word”sell” make you nervous?

Many women get nervous by the word “sell”. I wrote about the reasons I chose to focus my business on growing my Avon team and not “selling”. You can read about it here.

There are plenty of choices related to how you can run your Avon business.

What do you need to start a makeup business?

Starting out as an Avon Rep is a good and cheap place to start. You will need a debit, credit, or money card with a Visa/MC logo & $30 with comes with your choice of an Avon Starter Kit. As an e-Representative you’ll start making money by working 1-2 hours per week. 

A typical day in the life of a new Avon rep trying to get your Avon business going.

Sign into your Avon 2.0 app and poke around. If you have access to a desktop pc, sign in at youravon.com and poke around there too. It can be overwhelming at first but there’s some great information there! Make sure to add your estore link to all of your social media pages. Create a Pinterest and Facebook account and start following your friends….many will follow you back. That’s the first step. 

Create a small bag or see through box to keep in your car. Stick a small Avon sticker on your driver side passenger window. Drive through cashiers will see it and ask for a brochure or sample. Make sure you’re always ready to work your business :)

It’s not for the unmotivated, but with perseverance, it’s the best side hustle. 

The second step for getting your Avon business going.

I once wrote a short list of things all new Avon reps should know. I think the list has 14 or so tips. You can check it out here. Now that you have your social media pages set, you can begin setting up your posts using the “Content Planner” section of your Avon Social tab.

Let me just say, our Avon social is THE BEST for grabbing content to post on Instagram too when you’re out of ideas. It has quotes, video tutorials, family content, pet funnies and of course Avon news mentions.

The third and final step for getting your Avon first sale is to place your own order.

I know, I know, it sounds crazy and MLM’ish but it’s the only way you’re really going to know the quality of the products. You may essentially be your first customer.  In your first order, you’ll see the savings discount at the Avon checkout page. think that’s when every serious Avon rep gets HOOKED.

How to make money with Avon without blogging?

It’s definitely doable! If you’ve got a great group of friends, start texting them your Avon brochure link. To find it, just go to your estore select “The Book”.  Copy and paste the link anywhere.

Turn your attention to Instagram and start sharing some pretty photos of yourself. Open up, be vulnerable, be real, be honest, and build trust with your followers. Comment back, like back, use IG stories, take video clips, start a YT channel, the possibilities are endless.
