Avon in 1962
I was browsing online when I came across this AVON advert from 1962. (my birth year) (Click on the image below to activate this vintage Avon advert)
This got me thinking. Do people know exactly how long has Avon been around? Did you know Avon has been around for exactly 130 years this year? How amazing it is to be a part of a company with such an established and powerful brand name.
Avon started life as The California Perfume Company 130 years ago in the USA. David H McConnell was the founder. He started out selling books to housewives as a travelling salesman! By chance, he decided to add perfume samples to his Book selling as a way to try to encourage his customers to buy his books. He quickly realised the perfumes were more popular than his books! An astute businessman, he also realised that women would sell the perfumes better than he could.
He set up The California Perfume Company and enlisted the help of a pharmacist to make his perfumes. Then Mr McConnell started signing up women to sell his perfumes. These ladies were the first ever 'avon ladies'.
From here he started to diversify and sell other products. He re named the company after his favourite place to take his holidays, the district of AVON in the UK. And the rest, as they say, is history!! Avon is now a global, multi million dollar organisation, operating in over 100 countries! Little did Mr. CcConnell know all those years ago how significant it was that he employed his army of Avon ladies or how iconic his Avon brand was to become 130 years later!
Avon Cosmetics came over to the UK around 60 years ago, and during this time Avon UK has diversified and grown into the well know household name that we all know and love. It is without a doubt the most enduring name in the cosmetics world. Avon products are synonymous with both quality and value.
Since introducing Sales Leadership and Team building to the business, Avon UK has grown from strength to strength. I believe it is by far the most attractive and successful network marketing opportunity out there,
