Avon Update and Giveaway: Writer's Cramp

When you order 100 brochures to pass out, you have to write your name, telephone number, and website 100 times.  I need to invest in a stamp. 

I've given up writing my email address because no one can read it.  I've also stopped writing an expiration date because it's too confusing.  You can only shop from the current brochure online, but I can sell out of 3 brochures at a time (very helpful to new reps).  I was trying to put both dates on the brochures, but I'm not sure customers really understood.  I've decided that in the interest of gaining new customers it's best to honor the prices listed in whatever brochure she's got in her hands.    



I've started my Christmas shopping!  Avon has stocking stuffers and Secret Santa gifts galore, some of which are pictured above.  I bought hand creams, lip balms, and bubble bath minis to put in little gift bags for my family and friends.  Money is tight this year, so I'm on a limited budget.  These were perfect.  The earrings were $6 for the set of 2 boxes, and the other items were less than a dollar each. 

If you have people in your life who might appreciate these in their stockings, you can buy them from my online store:   http://jenniferdavidson.avonrepresentative.com/.   



I'm going to ask some of my friends and customers if they will host Avon parties for me.  I'd like to stock up on seasonal merchandise to have on hand.  Once again, I'm asking for help to decide what to buy.  I'm giving away the above earring set to one lucky winner.  To enter, click here then leave in a comment which jewelry giftset you'd be most likely to give to someone.  You guys can participate, too.  You know you've got Secret Santa gifts to buy as well as shopping for your sisters, daughters, girlfriends, wives...      

I'm experimenting with extra entries on this one.  In addition to the required entry mentioned above, for each of the following you can earn one additional entry.  Leave one comment for each:

1)  Follow my blog on Google Friend Connect.
2)  Register at my e store (no purchase required):    http://jenniferdavidson.avonrepresentative.com/register.html?cmd=register

The winner will be selected using Random.com.  Last day to enter:  November 24, 2010. 
            
Don't forget to leave your email address if it's not on your public profile.

CONTEST CLOSED.  Congratulations to Emily.

Sounds like you are learning a lot as you go along. And I always think of Avon as just make-up and stuff ... didn't realize they have jewelry too.

Kelly said...

Cute earrings!! I may have to order some. I use to love their holiday lip balms and purse sized hand lotions.

I get e-mails from you all the time now. (ever since I signed in to my Avon account through your page!)

Jen said...

How often do those go out? I've got it set on auto, but have considered turning that off. I want to remind people I exist, but don't want so many to go out to annoy them so they unsubscribe or send me to their spam folder.

THE Morena CZ Gift Set WOULD BE A GREAT GIFT FOR MY FRIEND TAMMY THIS CHRISTMAS

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Loving Avon, I follow your blog and I will have to go look at your avon site. My cousin sells it but she's not a very good sales rep so you may win out!

Publix Coupon Queen said...

Can I make an Avon recommendation? Try using Vistaprint. They have a free rubber stamp you can put all your info and pay $6 in shipping.

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

Oh man I wish I had the money, I love Avon products.

Kelly said...

Well...... it does seem like I get one most every day! If not that, three or four times a week. I can keep track if you want me to.

Jen said...

That's too often! I'm turning it off. I can manually forward the good ones.

You definitely need to invest in a stamp. Your poor hand will not survive all that writing.

Since you have an online store, are you going to be offering the chance to do online parties? I have a lot of girlfriends, but in the last year we have all moved apart because of marriage and careers.
