    Jumbo_Refill,

    Are you saying you want to sell Avon through PPC channels in order to learn about them? If so, that seems like a good idea although I can see you running into problems with PPC advertisers' policies for brand names. I know that Avon wants their home sales consultants to market their brand but in the eyes of some PPC providers, you can't use a company's brand name unless you are the company. Not sure if that would be a hurdle or not.

    If you are using Adwords for example, the landing page must be set up to sell the brand's products or the ad isn't approved,

    Hope that helps,

    I wouldnt do Avon its not really that good money wise, you have to pay for your own testers/magazines and all that... You need a big client base to actually make some decent profit and now a days people just hate seeing them in there letter boxes.
