PRICING: Store vs. Direct Selling

PRICING: Store vs. Direct Selling

We Make It Bold, You Make It Beautiful

Have you ever wondered why some things (ok, a LOT of things) are sold in stores, where on the other hand, some brands, such as Avon, have never sold in a store? One reason is pricing. For everything you see on a shelf in a box store, there is a company behind that product paying for shelf space. Which, of course is factored into the price of the product and passed onto you, the customer. So, on one hand, how low would the prices of makeup, skincare, and other products really be in a store such as WalMart if companies didn’t have to pay for shelf space??

Makeup and More

On the other hand, how much lower in price would the high-end makeup, skincare and other products be?? Think all those brands you see at Sephora – NARS, MAC and Dior, just to name a few. Well, now you’re talking Avon‘s language. Avon‘s products are of high-end quaility without the high-end price. How? Avon doesn’t pay for shelf space. Avon is able to bring to you the very best, and keep their prices low by selling through us Independent Sales Representatives.

Did you also realize that with Avon, you don’t have to worry if you are not happy with a product. With Avon’s guarantee, if you are not 100% satisfied, you can exchange or return any item and get your money back. I don’t think you can do that too many other places, if at all. We prefer our customers happy AND satisfied. Just some things to think about next time you go shopping for something. Which reminds me, have you taken a look at Avon lately?
