As time is limited and web updating is sometimes involved, I'm suggesting you spend some time on my
Avon Blog Page there, I can post new thoughts and ideas more readily and I like the format because it's more interactive.
I urge you to comment on those ideas and I hope you'll become a follower!
The purpose of this website is to assist both
new Avon Representatives and those looking for a fresh start. If you've been here before you'll notice a change to the Avon pages.
I've decided to incorporate the whole site into my info pages.
If this is your first visit I encourage you to take a moment to view all pages related
to this subject, there just my be something for you on another page. Just click a link
below or go to the link to the left "more tips".
We will discuss such topics as brochures, ideas on how to use them and why.
If you are new to the business there are things you should do first to help get your
business off the ground. I've seen many Avon Business struggle
because the representative lacks the necessary motivation to get it going and keep it
going. We'll also be discussing leadership, why it's important, what to
expect from yours and if you become a Unit Leader what will be
expected from you. No business can survive with out advertising, but where to start, Avon
business cards, newspaper, brochures it can be mind boggling, but
with a little thought we can wade through this. This site is a
work in progress, I invite you to
I hope you find the information useful, feel free to
share it with those associated with your business.
Are You Reaching Your Full Potential Selling
Building a successful Avon business is more about business
attitude than selling Avon. Here we discuss business ideas and
how they pertain to operating and building your business. This is
about being motivated and being able to motivate those in your
business. Those Ladies that have reached Senior Executive unit
Leader didn't get there because they were lucky and they
didn't sell there way to the top either.
Lets Keep in Touch
I'm a real person just like you, I have a family, a home and a job, I've been in business for over 25
years and much of the information provided is business oriented with an Avon slant. I invite you
to join me on Facebook
If you have a specific Avon topic that I haven't covered and you think would be of interest to other ladies, contact me. Just fill out the form
with your comments.
(I don't send out a mail list and I don't sell lists so you need not worry about spam).
I've watched many ladies get all excited about living the
lavish lifestyle portrayed on Avon's promotional material.
Can you achieve it - Absolutely! But most won't, Why? I
suppose because they forget that it requires devotion and
commitment. You must keep the dream (or reason) in front of
you. Its also important to realize that, Rome
wasn't built in a day. And you must also realize that
you may have to do things a little different. I've included
some tips about the business as well as some creative products
that HAVE worked for us, you can use them too or design your own.more on

your business is an indication you're already taking the
first steps necessary to become successful. This site has been visited by thousands of Ladies
from all over the world, most are here for a short time, many
bookmark us and come back. Now let me ask you a couple of
questions. Over time who do think will be more successful, the
Representative that drops by for a few moments, or the one that
invests a little time and comes back now and again to see
what's new? Your time is valuable as
is mine, if I can be of assistance in pointing you in the right
direction, by sharing with you my point of view than I'm
satisfied. The adds are here to help pay for
the site, and hopeful will also assist you on your journey,
many of them you may find interesting and further your knowledge.
I'm Trying To Help
I believe its a husbands responsibility to help or at least
encourage his wife - Not always so apparently. I've noticed
that most Representatives are on their own and many receive
little assistance from District Managers, Up Line, husbands or
significant others. I work with my wife because I see the
commitment she has to her business, her Ladies and her customers.
Six Important Points You need To Know
to your customers
Educatethem as to why
they should deal with you and the Avon product line.
Persist - If you have
customers be there, don't give a brochure then never go back
- keep going back
service you can - if a product is on back order, go the extra
mile, if you don't someone else will!
Everyone needs a hot button perhaps yours is to be a stay at home
mom, be there for the kids when the leave for school or perhaps
your little ones are not yet in school and you understand the
importance of working your own hours. Perhaps your not interested
building a large network of Ladies but simply to have a few
customers. Isn't it great this is an opportunity for you
also. There are many different ways to generate income while
working at home but few offer the stability of the Avon
For those that are busy building their mega networking empire
don't rule out these fine moms, there are more of them than
you may realize, and they will provide a stable mix to your
Are You An e-Rep? You Should Be
If you're going to compete with the movers and
shakers you need to be serious about your business. You will
need to attract sales whenever and wherever you can. Being an
e-rep allows you to tap the internet with your own Avon site (you
can customize it somewhat) you can direct friends and family from
out of town to your site, customers that move can still deal with
you. Your customers can order from the site, you get an e-mail
informing you of the order. You will know if the customer has
prepaid or if you have to collect when you deliver. The order is
either sent to them (if they prepaid) or if sent to you,
you'll collect. The cost is around $7.50 USD per
campaign, and you go to youravon.com to sign-up. The cost
is waived if you have an order through your site (for each
campaign that you have an online order) Note: If you're in leadership and want to use the
downline manager you will need to be an e-rep.
Remember to put you web address on your brochures, business
cards, bumper sticker etc. you never know who will see your
I know that Representatives don't have much money to spent on advertising.
We both know that you have to do something! Sure the brochures are the best idea - but we've tried buttons like the ones below and they really do work. The price is minimal.
Just put one on, wear it around and someone will approach you. Yup it's just that easy!
Your upline know this - and the farther up you go, the more you'll find they spend!
Think of it this way - If you want to be at the top think like they do.
I don't know of any way to build
a business without advertising. We all know the caveman from
Geiko right? What do you think of when you think of
Affleck? So let me ask you this. How do you
your business? If you're not achieving the levels you know that you
can then you need to understand what the problem is. We use
a more subtle (less annoying approach) its more subjective
- lets face it every one wants to make more money right? What if
you were wearing a sweatshirt that offered folks to do just
that - MAKE MORE money? Check out
the items we've provided and you will see how you can
turn yourself into a BILLBOARD for your own business.
