Grow Your Avon Business – 21 Tips for Quick Success

Are you interested in growing your Avon business? Becoming an Avon Representative is super easy, and there are plenty of resources to help you grow your business and achieve your personal goals.

  1. Use Avon products yourself. One of the best ways to sell a product is to know everything about it. Your regular discount and demos allow you to save money and try the products on your own first.
  2. Ask your customers for product reviews. When distributing orders, ask your customer to let you know how the products perform. This is a great way to learn about the products so that you can offer more information to other customers.
  3. Share your products. If you work in an office, make sure you have hand lotion to share with your colleagues. I got several orders just letting others try the lotion sitting on my desk. Another Avon rep keeps extra tubes of hand cream for on-site sales.
  4. Educate yourself with training. Get the most out of your business by taking Avon’s online training courses. Every new rep should start here first as the courses include everything from money management, to launching your business, to placing orders. Most lessons last 30 minutes and have downloadable text sheets. Earn a certificate upon completion of each and special recognition for completing certain courses.
  5. Become an electronic representative. Curious about becoming an eRep? Customers can order online and have the product delivered directly to their home. There is usually a free or discounted shipping code on the website. I tell my clients if they don’t see one, let me know and I’ll get them one! Once you become an erep, you also have access to other customer management tools. You can set up an email marketing campaign to let customers know about new products or campaigns. My customers love the “little reminder” because they often include free or discount codes.
  6. Use your network. Share your enthusiasm for your new business and people will love you. Most of your friends are already familiar with Avon products and therefore they will be your easiest customers. Everyone is a member of some organization or workplace. You have an extensive network of football moms, hairdressers, delivery clerks, doctor’s employees, etc.
  7. Wear Avon jewelry. I get so many compliments when I wear a new Avon necklace. Most jewelry comes in sets, such as a necklace and bracelet. They are designed to complement fashion or seasonal colors. Some told me they weren’t sure if a necklace would match their dress, but with the hassle-free return guarantee they weren’t afraid to return it if it didn’t. Oh, and I haven’t received any jewelry returns yet!
  8. Invest in great business cards. Make sure your business cards look professional, even if you buy from a discount provider. Include a customer reward program on the back. I printed mine with a “buy in five campaigns, get 20% off your sixth campaign order” coupon on the back.
  9. Share your business cards. Tip one for your waiter, hang them in the community bulletin board area of ​​the grocery store, give it to the mall cashier, etc.
  10. Personalize your business cards. When I distribute my business cards, I write a free shipping code offer that fits on my website. I also mention the Avon Opportunity: Do you want to earn extra money by becoming an Avon Representative?
  11. Order lots of brochures. Brochures are truly your “shop”. They are well designed, colorful and cheap. The photos are very clear and often show what makeup looks like on a real person. In every campaign brochure, Avon includes their famous scratch-and-smell perfume circles.
  12. Keep brochures handy. I keep the latest campaign brochure and a flyer for the outlet sales in my bag. I always preview the campaign brochure so I can address the market: for example, I could say, have you seen the new Avon line of mineral makeup? There’s a 1 deal, get 1 half price on page 32 for Smooth Mineral Makeup. Oh!
  13. Buy stickers for the back of brochures. My stickers match my business cards and the large print makes them easy to read. The stickers include my name, phone number, email address and website address. Brochures, stickers and business cards are powerful sales tools!
  14. Don’t forget the special offers. Everyone loves a deal! Use your imagination to come up with captivating ideas. How about free wrapping for Mother’s Day? Reminder for birthdays and anniversaries? BOGO – buy one get one? Refer a friend and get 10% off your next order? Print Avon Bucks and include in their bag when handing out orders.
  15. Always upsell. This is a key selling tip that really works. Suppose your customer purchases a certain fragrance; draw his attention to the lotion. Do you have an order for a necklace? Indicates the ring on the same page. Has your client chosen a skincare product for aged skin? Make sure he knows about the eye lift cream.
  16. Attend sales meetings. Your district manager or DM will hold sales meetings every few months during which you will have the opportunity to meet other representatives, see and try new products, share your successes, and discuss sales techniques. These meetings are encouraging and fun, be sure to attend.
  17. Make samples and demos work for you. Attach a sample on the most recent brochure page where the item is listed with a paper clip. Encourage your customers to try the product. Buy a demo and use it yourself or give it to a loyal customer to try it out.
  18. Vacation and special days. Remind your customers that holidays and special occasions tend to sneak up on us and that you have great gifts for anyone.
  19. Don’t forget the male customer. We tend to forget about the boys, but they have daughters home from college, wives who love to wear makeup, and mothers who love to be treated with a gift from mom who thinks of you. Avon has some great products especially for men. Discover the aftershave balms and the foot care line. Don’t forget Bug Guard for camping, hunting and yard work.
  20. Use the hassle-free returns policy to close the deal. Avon promises, “If you’re not happy with a purchase, return it for an exchange or your money back. No questions. No problem. No problem.” Even if the trick is open, if the customer is unhappy Avon will return without stress. You will collect the item and use eZ Returns for a credit. No problem even for repetitions!
  21. Grow your team. Get ready to share your success when someone asks about the Avon Opportunity. Some of your customers may tell you that they are interested in earning extra money. Avon is so successful thanks to people like you and me who love products and work to grow their business.

Focus on what attracted you to Avon and create strategies to communicate that to your customers. Were you already a customer who loved skin care products? Your testimonial can be a great asset to your business. Are you excited about the earning potential? Share how you achieved a financial goal. Avon offers training, great products, customer service and a support network to help you achieve your goals. Becoming an Avon Representative is a personal growth opportunity that’s also a lot of fun!
