Avon was established in America in 1886 with distinctive approach of selling women’s cosmetics with the name of Avon calling. This idea of business was initiated by David McConnell from new York. The main merchandise of business was not perfume and creams but at the age of sixteen McConnell started to sell books through door to door selling. He found out he was not able to entice the consumers to buy the books. so he initiated the campaign by offering free gifts as perfumes which he produced with the collaboration of the pharmacist. Subsequently this turned out to be an incentive that became a mainline product for Avon and the books were abolished, paving the way for Avon cosmetics' existence. The door to door selling was made specifically to specification and later by 1887 McConnell hired around 13 women representatives.
Moreover, with the passage of time the company began to grow and the name was changed from California cosmetic company to Avon Products, Inc. Presently is ranked first across the nation in cosmetic industry with high revenues.
