The Avon business story started in the USA back in 1886 by a young door-to-door bookseller, David McConnell. The rose oil perfume he was giving away as an incentive for women to buy his books was the reason itself why they were buying.
From there his dreams materialised into superior quality products sold through a network of like individuals direct from the manufacturer to the consumer’s home.
Mrs. P.F.E. Albee of Winchester, New Hampshire was McConnell’s first recruit, the world’s first “Avon Lady” together they developed the early selling model that would become the foundation of a global business. Mrs Albee sold products and recruited other women as depot agents, becoming the role model for the Avon Representative of today.
McConnell’s vision offered a unique way for women to take control of their lives and become more independent at a time when women were expected to stay at home rather than a earn a living. At a time even before women had the right to vote. Those first Avon ladies must have been quite inspiring and tenacious, the same qualities of today’s successful Avon Representatives.
During a visit to England, McConnell was awe inspired by the beauty of Stratford-upon-Avon which prompted his introduction of a new product line “Avon” in 1939. Later he changed the company’s name to Avon Products Inc.
Ding-Dong – Avon calling
The 1950’s brought the age of the television, the famous ‘ding-dong – Avon calling’ was first heard on US television in 1954. Global expansion increased rapidly in the late 1950’s including Avon’s emergence into Europe.
Now Avon Cosmetics is the world’s leading direct seller of beauty and related products, manufacturing and selling a quality trusted brand for over 50 years in the UK.
There are 160,000 Avon sales reps in the UK with an estimated 8 million customers, one in three women at some time have bought Avon. A friendly and professional network of Avon Ladies that would make McConnell proud.
