Nail techs are notoriously shy about selling retail, but not Brenda Bollard, the owner of Bren’s Nails in Conroe, Texas. According to Brenda, selling Avon products is “easy money.” She simply keeps a brochure on her nail table and her clients shop while they are having their nails done. She also has a website that clients can go to 24/7 to browse or place an order.
“There is a new campaign with new items and sales every two weeks so every time a client comes in for her two-week fill, I have a new brochure on my table to entice her,” she says.
“I don’t have to deliver, because their order is waiting for them the next time that they come in the salon. Avon has make-up, jewelry, skincare, fragrance, purses, shoes, clothes, gift items, men’s items — something for everyone. And I don’t have to keep any inventory. The greatest thing is that Avon pays to ship my order to me.”
Sounds like a sweet deal to me.
