The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

leader-2815528_1920.pngRecruiting is a generally a distasteful word. Most everyone seems to associate it with negativity. But, whether you’re actively recruiting or not, it’s totally natural that others will want a little piece of what you’ve got when you’re excited about what you sell.

Here’s my best piece of advice: let recruits come to you. Simply put it out there so that the information is readily available for those who are interested in finding it and just keep loving what you sell by shouting it out to the world!

Personalize your story. Advertise your why. Others will want to jump on board with you in time if you keep on putting it out there.

List your sign up link and referral code on your brochure labels and post it on your social media profiles/groups/pages. Schedule regular posts from Avon’s social media center (PRO TIP: I always choose Mondays to post them since most folks hate having to go to work on Mondays) and make sure to let folks know you are thrilled to mentor them if they choose to join in the journey.

Another way to get team members “accidentally” is to publicize whenever your team grows.  People love being part of something that’s growing and gaining steam, so don’t fail to toot your team’s horn when it grows…or when it hits new praise-worthy heights.

Do just these few things and you just might be surprised when you have a new team member or two!

    This is excellent advice. Applicable to almost anything, not only Avon.

        I miss ‘us’ too….With the birthday celebration (which were myriad) came a few days off of work, now I’m playing catch up at work, which has left me with zero time to blog. 😞 Still in the office and it’s almost 7 on the East Coast.

            Every minute of every second of it. I was thinking about blogging about it (the celebrations, that is) but thought it might be too self-indulgent. Thoughts?

              Not at all – your blog is about you and your last entry was about your birthday (which you should link back to in a follow up piece). It seems like the whole world wished you a happy birthday, so it seems logical that we all care about how you celebrated. 🙂
