Here are my top secrets on how to get more Avon customers online before you quit your Avon business completely.So many of us are working from home. Working your Avon business from home forces you to be a little more creative.
All of these Avon selling tips can be accomplished with a smart phone or tablet.
#1 Make short videos of you opening your Avon boxes using Facebook stories
I was surprised to get more Avon customers after posting vidoes to my Facebook stories. Use Flipagram, Viva Video, Instashot, and other video apps to make a beginner video look like a pro.
Make sure to hold your camera very still when capturing photos. Also make sure your photos are clear by cleaning the camera lens of your phone beforehand.
Selfie lights are a cheap way to get great photos too. Then tap your finger on the center of your phone screen in order to focus the shot.
#2 Find a pretty spot in your home
Every business person needs a small enough space to help them get inspired. Even a large shoe box was one woman’s office.
Use Portrait Mode!!
Find a place in your home with nice lighting and snap your photos in front of that space regularly.
Granite countertops, or a white desk, maybe even a window seat are all good choices for a product back drop.
#3 Use Pinterest to get more Avon customers online
Create Pinterest boards and share your online store every 2 weeks! (Several times a day)
I try to use the same template so that my followers know that it’s me when my pins appear.
You may opt to use the same filter in every photo so it’s more visually pleasing.
#4 Make videos with you in them.
Did you know you can make videos with just pictures? I love this feature for when I don’t quite feel up to begging on camera.
Using my photos, I create a video, add music to it, and post it to Instagram, Facebook, and my blogs.
#5 Acknowledge your buyers.
When you have great customers (even if it’s only 1-2) reward them with thank you cards and free samples.
Take a step further and find out their birthdays.
Treat them like royalty and make note of the things they love to purchase.
#6 Don’t compare yourself to other representatives.
In this business, competition is high but there’s PLENTY of room for everyone. There aren’t any Avon Representative MUA’s that I know of within the company. (Outside of Avon execs)
The lane is wide open for someone outgoing to start new trends.The biggest mistake Avon Reps make is giving up too soon and not using ALL of your resources.
#7 Know your local area & interact with them to get more Avon customers online
Do you live in a military community? Or maybe a tourist/beach area? Or a small town?
This is important because depending on your area, your marketing will vary. For instance, small town Avon Reps can connect with local businesses that they see regularly.
Gas stations, fast food, day cares, etc. In this case, I would also connect with them on Instagram or Facebook.
#8 Use Samples Wisely
If you can, always get 2 referrals from each sample.
When you sell Avon, advertise that you’re giving away samples on Facebook locally or ask the library if you can host an Avon fundraiser event there.
The library always has a media room and they will advertise your event for you as well.
Community libraries will often times do this free of charge.
#9 Use a company to send Avon brochures to past customers
I began using Campaign Mailer to begin shipping Avon brochures to all of my recent and past Avon customers. Since doing so, I’ve been getting 3x’s more orders online.
The company also sends Avon brochures with free samples for pennies more.
Invest about $20 a month starting out and your earnings will begin to exceed your investment.
Below shows the orders coming in now that I’ve begun mailing Avon brochures.
What recruiting looks like when you advance into Avon leadership
I can’t think of a better way to wake up with my coffee and my email! It’s a great feeling!
#10 Connect with people like yourself
Join groups on Facebook that appeal to the things you love and identify with. Most Facebook groups have a thread that allows you to post your business weekly.
#11 Go to Avon Rep Fest/Avon Con At Least Once
At Avon Rep Fest, you’ll be so inspired with new information and ways to market your business. Not to mention, it’s fun meeting all the million dollar team leaders.
