Avon Update and Giveaway: Door to Door is Working

I've been reading the Avon forums and the biggest complaint seems to be running all over town to get a few dollars here and a few dollars there.  I've decided to concentrate my efforts on going door to door in my neighborhood so my customers won't be scattered all over.  I usually spend 2 or 3 hours and gain one customer each time.  That doesn't seem like a lot, but once I find them most have been reordering.  On Saturday, I didn't even knock.  I just put old brochures on doors.  I've gotten two phone calls so far!  If I can gain an average of one customer a week maybe I can eventually build up a healthy customer base.  If I take advantage of the free expired brochures my upline sometimes provides, I can gain even more.

I'm trying to grow my online business, as well.  My previous giveaway of assorted products was so successful, I'm doing it again.  Maybe this will become a monthly event.  It's a fun way to introduce people to Avon and a good use for some of the items I bought to increase my earnings level.  (If my order is 120 dollars, I'll buy another 25 dollars worth so I can earn 30% instead of 20%.)  

This time I'm giving away the following items, pictured above, with a total value of $50.

1)  Naturals Hydrating Shampoo:  Banana and Coconut Milk
2)  Naturals Hydrating Conditioner:  Banana and Coconut Milk
3)  Skin So Soft Mini:  Soft and Sensual replenishing body lotion
4)Naturals Shower Gel:  glazed apple and walnut
5)  Astonishing Lengths Mascara:  black
6)  Ultra Color Rich Lipstick:  wineberry
7)  Glazewear Shine Lip Gloss:  darling pink
8)  Glimmersticks Diamonds eye liner:  black ice
9)  Precision Glimmer powder eyeshadow:  classic mocha

REQUIRED ENTRY:  Leave one comment telling me your favorite Avon product.  If you've never tried Avon, tell me which product would most likely be your first purchase.

ADDITIONAL ENTRIES:  After the required entry, earn additional entries by doing the following:

One additional entry (leave one additional comment):  Follow me on GFC.

my favorite product is skin-so-soft

Linda said...

I don't know if you still have this because I had a stockpile and didn't buy it for a couple of years, but all my life I have used the lip balm called LipDew. So, starting about age 15 that's almost 50 years, plus using various other products along the way.

I love the Ultra Color Rich lipstick in Instant Mocha; sometimes, it's hard to find. It is the perfect color for my ruddy complexion, as it tones down my natural rosy tones.

I just got the Avon Anew Reversalist (I think that's the name) from my mom as a stocking stuffer (yes my mommy still stuffs my stocking don't laugh!) and so far I love it. She got me the day and night cream because she uses it and looks about 30 (when shes 50++) so I can't wait to see what results I have!

my fav item is between their nail polishes and lipsticks, hands down the best i have ever used and i am not sure people realize that. also the sss product line, especially the sunscreen with sss in it. do they still carry the kids version that was blue until they rubbed it in? that was the BEST and my little ones were always covered in it.
