Improving AVON Sales

I've decided to read the ebook "Exploding AVON sales" to see what all I can learn today. Hopefully it turns out to be $5.99 well spent.

I read the ebook and it gave me some great idea to build my sales with AVON. Hopefully some of these will work out well and I will increase my sales alot :)

Business Update

I actually ended up doing much better on my last order than I thought I would. Several new customers. Took the step of putting together some gift bags with samples and catalogs to give to businesses. It was a little nervewracking but I got up the courage to approach a few. Hopefully, I can keep the courage up and get alot more business this way. One office I went to even said they had been looking for an AVON lady. I hope this works out. I think sometimes I forget how shy I can be about approaching people I don't know .I know AVON has great products at excellent prices so that helps alot to be confident in the product I'm selling.
I ordered some tshirts to promote my sales as well so hopefully that gets alot more attention. I think the real key is just taking the risk and approaching people. Just about everyone seems to know what AVON is, whether or not they have been asked to buy any seems to be the question of the day. Most haven't so here's to hoping I get some decent sales out of this next campaign.

Building Customer Base

Building my customer base has been a rough start. I started with friends and coworkers from different jobs. I tried leaving catalogs with my business card in my neighborhood. So far I've averaged about $150 for each of my first two campaigns. I've ordered more brochures this time around) time (100 this , working on some letters to businesses, and ordered some samples to give away to new customers. I created a frequent shopper loyalty card for customers to get 5.00 off a $20.00 purchase after they have bought 10 items during the months of April though May. Working on printing some coupons. My AVON website is up and running. I have enjoyed getting a discount purchasing different items and have quickly developed a love for 10 products. I listed them on the right side of my blog.
