There are many products that can be sold from home including Avon which is now around 130 years old in its origin. Like all sell from home businesses there are mixed reviews and it really depends what you are looking for. Avon for many works incredibly well if you have the time and are willing to put the required effort in. There are start up costs of around £15 but these are usually deducted over two installments from your earnings, there is also a fee to pay for the brochures but again, this is something you initially pay for and then can make the money back through sales.  The more sales you obtain, you higher discount range you receive and this is how you make the money. Its really important to get a really good regular customer base with return sales. Avon for many is a very good way to earn money whilst they are not in employment and for some turns out to be a really great work from home opportunity and as long as you are prepared to put the work in, you will make a good return.


Another great selling Programme is Neal’s Yard Organic, the principle is the same as Avon but the start up costs may vary. There will be an initial start up amount to pay which may be in the region of around £95. This gives you a kit to get you started and is worth around £250.  They offer a great support network to help you obtain your sales and give you lots of advice on how to increase your customer base. There is around 25% commission on sales and there is the option to organize parties where you can further sell the products but this isn’t mandatory and you can just build a successful customer base instead if you don’t want to host regular parties.  The success will largely depend on what you put in and you can make a real success if you have the time and are willing to build a regular customer base.


The body shop is another well established work from home business that has a good reputation and the added bonus of great products.  There is usually a start up cost of £45 for a pamper kit which is worth £145 in sales, this includes some of the best selling items. This will give you an earning capacity of 25%-30% commission on the products.  There is no experience necessary and they offer training and advice. The great thing with the body shop products is that they are so popular, selling them direct to family and friends initially isn’t a problem. Once you have got started, you can widen your network and use social media to spread the word.


There are many more sell from home businesses and you can search on the internet and find an array of products. Which one you choose largely depends on your personal circumstances and the start up costs. The most important thing to consider is to choose a product you actually like yourself and have perhaps used, this will give you more confidence when selling the product.  It is also really important you consider how much time you have for selling the products, the general advice from sellers is to ensue you have the time to give because if you don’t, you will run the risk of failure. Building a customer base is time consuming but if you are trying to do other things at the same time, it will prove incredibly difficult.

Like all businesses, you have to put a lot of time in to get returns and unfortunately whilst products like Avon help to sell themselves, a lot of the work will have to be done by you. The other important aspect to consider is sales, if you enjoy increasing sales and meeting new people then this may be for you but if you don’t, you may struggle.  Always consider all of this before you decide which one you want to do and read about the many opportunities out there before making a choice, for many it proves to be a great way to work from home and make money but for others the time needed proves to be an obstruction. Whatever you decide, there are some great work from home products out there even if you only do them for a while.
