80 Avon Tips to grow your business

  1. Whenever possible, give your product as a gift. I keep a little bit of stock of hand creams, bubble baths, mascaras and lip balms to give out as gifts. Avon shampoo, conditioner and hand soap are great house warming gifts and host gifts!
  2. Ask every single customer if they would like to join you in your business.
  3. Promote your business as a “family” business and give examples.
  4. Remember your customer’s children and spouse’s names
  5. Don’t be pushy; sincerely and honestly tell potential recruits why they would be good at this!
  6. Leave your old catalogs in public places with “Help Wanted” stickers
  7. If someone feels they are too busy because they are already employed outside the home, tell them they can be the “on-site” Representative for your company.

  9. Indirect method of asking “Do you know of anyone who might be interested…”
  10. Follow up within 24-48 hours.

  40. Encourage people at parties to ask questions about what you do.
  41. Declare a monthly recruiting goal, and share that goal with your spouse.
  42.  Post your goal in several places around the house.
  43. Take your monthly goal, multiply by 10 and then number the lines of a spiral notebook accordingly. (example, if 4 a month is your goal, number 1-40 on individual lines). This is your Master List of new people to talk to each month about the business.
  44. Break your goal down to a daily level of activity (in the above example, you would need to ask 2 people to join you each day – Monday through Friday).

My Opinion Counts!

My Opinion Counts!
Avon listens to their Representatives!


Have you worked for a company that values your opinion? Avon is always communicating with the representatives and eagerly awaiting our feedback. Avon cares about us representatives and are always looking for ways to better the Avon business and the representative experience!

I have received many invites from Avon to express my opinions on products and about the Avon business.

I received an email saying that Avon has selected me to give my views on some of Avon’s latest products! I also will be helping Avon to pick out some of the products that could appear in upcoming campaigns.

They state “As an Avon Representative, your opinion counts in determining what we offer you and your Customers.”

Isn’t Avon awesome?! They really value the opinions of the representatives! What other business does that?

The survey was a “game”.

The goal of the game is to guess what the average person would pay for a variety of styles and give them my thoughts on the styles.

After asking me some preliminary info such as age, ethnicity yrs as avon rep, etc, it was time to play the game!

I was shown a photo of an item and was asked to leave feedback about my views on the styles. There were about a dozen photos and this game was specifically about lingerie and under wear items including bras. Did you know Avon sells bras? At a great value too!

Along with the photo there was two different sliders. The first slider is to set price – what would they pay? What would the customer pay?

The second slider is to set sentiment – drag to the spot best represents how I feel about this item.

I LOVE working with a company that listens to my concerns and makes changes to suit us better. Fantastic!

Are you ready to get started with this GREAT company?

Easy way to get Avon Customers

Easy way to get Avon Customers

Are you looking for an easy way to get Avon customers? Are you new to the Avon business and would like customers? Here’s a great idea!

Easy way to get Avon Customers

This wonderful idea and photo is from the wonderful Lisa Wilber!

This is a very simple and inexpensive way to promote your business and get local Avon customers. Carry around an Avon bag and write on it “Ask Me for an Avon Brochure!” This is definitely a conversation starter and help connect you with people that want Avon service!

It’s easy to chat with people when they first talk to you!

Carry this around with you when you’re grocery shopping, set it on the table when you’re dining at a restaurant and bring it

Ask them “When’s the last time you’ve seen an Avon brochure?”


Your bag should contain:

  • Avon Brochures
  • Paper and Pen to get new customer’s information (name, phone number and email) to follow up
  • Samples
  • One product to demonstrate – a piece a of jewelry to show off or give them a squirt of the new hand cream!

Easy peasy! Grow your Avon business with customers!

Today In My Avon Business

This is how I label my Avon brochures!
This is how I label my Avon brochures!

So, I placed my campaign 5 order while here in Vegas and received it in a day and a half! Super quick! As the delivery driver pulled up to our RV spot, I heard him moving heavy boxes from one side of the van to the other. I didn’t think much of it until he appeared from behind the van with 5 boxes of books on his hand truck! 5!? I didn’t order THAT many!

Well, I must have ordered that many. I received 330 books! We don’t have much room for them in the RV, so I really need to get to work and start handing out all these brochures.

First, I start by labeling all of the brochures. I use Avery mailing labels on the back of my books with my name, phone number, website and info on how to become a representative.

I also print a second label that I use on the back of the brochure that I call my “recruiting label”. This has a short blurb about selling Avon and info about starting your own business.

I’ve recently started adding a third label to my brochures but I place it on the front of the book. This label has info on how to connect with me on my website www.MakeupMavenJessica.com and on Facebook, facebook.com/MakeupMavenJessica and Twitter @MakeupMavenJess

Now, I’m off to find new customers and recruits!
