Avon was founded by David H McConnell and was initially based in New york in United States of America. It is the fifth largest beauty based company in the world and the second largest direct selling entreprise, just behind Amway. The main products of Avon are beauty, personal care and household products. From a struggling door to door salesman , selling books in New York, the founder of the company is a true example of rags to riches story after Avon was launched in 1886. Though initially it was started in New York, the company witnessed a great deal of sales in the United Kingdom and other parts of Europe. This led to the shifting of the base from New York to London.
The company has more than 6.4 billion representatives around the world. Brazil is the largest consumer of Avon products. This promoted the company to start a service in 2018 in Brazil whereby the company delivers the products within 2 hours of ordering.
Reps are very much interested in the company due to very low starting package of just $10.
