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
