The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

Paper or…virtual?  Let’s talk business cards!  

Are you constantly trying to create new content that will entice customers/team members and hitting a brick wall?  Consider preparing an Avon newsletter! 

For those of you Avon reps handing out brochures, one giant tip you should know about is labeling your books. Every campaign I have 4-5 labels on the main brochure – 3 of them askew on the front! Why? Because people notice things that are unexpected and out of place! (Side tip: Want to be noticed in a large crowd of strangers? Wear your name tag vertical or upside down!) I place the following labels on my books…

Building a team is something I’m relatively new at. For the longest time, I focused ALL of my attention on building up my Avon customer base and becoming the best Avon lady I could be. That suited me just fine for a long time but the more your customer base grows, the more likely it will be that one or more of them will want to join your team.

While I focus a majority of my energy on my own Avon customers, I also have a small Avon team and we are known as Team Purrfection!  My current team came about organically – meaning I didn’t “recruit” them, they came to me to join my team for various reasons – two of them have never bought a single Avon item from me, one didn’t even know me personally.  Why do I tell you this?  To let you know that I am not the one you should be looking to for advice on how to build a gigantic team in a traditional way – I simply don’t operate that way…probably because I wasn’t recruited either.  *shrug*
