Make videos without you in them.
Since I’m an Avon Representative but also a loyal customer, I have an Avon stock pile of my faves.
Most of these were purchased at almost 80% off. Eyeliners, lipsticks, and shadows mostly but I love them all.
I believe I made the video below with Instashot or Youtube. You can download the app here for both your android or iphone.
You’ll get more Avon customers online just by simply showing a more in depth look at beautiful Avon products. Sounds easy huh? I thought so too.
But I have to push myself to do some of these tips!
How to snap gorgeous pictures for your Avon marketing.
Flipagram, Viva Video, Instashot, and other video apps are great for making a beginner video look like a pro. Just make sure to take really still and clear photos.
Make sure your photos are clear by cleaning the camera lens of your phone beforehand. Selfie lights are a cheap way to get great photos too.
Then tap your finger on the center of your phone screen in order to focus the shot. In most cases, this works great.
I went around the house taking great pictures of Avon items in beautiful settings. After searching online for info on marketing my Avon business even more, I admit it was really overwhelming.
I grabbed a nifty little book here that helped me get a beginner’s understanding on how to get started using social media to earn a living.
Avon U training is free and has great tips for marketing your Avon (or any business) online.
Dedicate an office space to yourself but make it pretty.
Every business person needs a small enough space to help them get inspired. Even a large shoe box was one woman’s office.
Each day she would unload and load up the box.
My office spaces are my desk, trunk of my car, and honestly the bathroom toilet.
I do my most creative writing sitting right on the throne and from my iphone. TMI? I’m sorry.
I have a town home so for me, space is essential. Small desks are enough to house your tablet, some Avon samples, a few writing pads, and your personal inspiration.
Use Pinterest and create specific Avon boards.
I have a Pinterest board for every category of Avon (just about). Consistently I post my estore links to their specified categories.
Be patient because even though you see 20K monthly viewers, that’s nothing compared to Avon top sellers who have over 1million.
Try to share links from your estore daily & follow lots of people. Use the Canva app to create those long Pinterest ads and customize them with photos from your Avon social app.
The Avon social images are absolutely gorgeous.
Make videos with you in them.
Did you know you can make videos with just pictures? I love this feature for when I don’t quite feel up to talking.
The video below was made with Inshot.
Using my photos, I create a video, add music to it, and post it to Instagram, Facebook, and my blogs.
Since music is my life, I love finding the right tracks for the video and dancing to it!
I do my best makeup applications at night on my vanity. But you can do it anywhere or even outside to get that natural light.
Know this one fact… The best Avon customers are Avon Reps.
Why? Because we know how good Avon products are. We buy, use, and enjoy. There’s a reason why I’ve focused on building my Avon team.
Imagine having a team of Avon reps who don’t place any orders? (I struggle with motivating my team too. I admit.)
They will never know the product, they’ll never enjoy it, and chances are they won’t be successful either as a customer or an Avon Leader.
Excitement about running an Avon business is electrifying within the first 30 days. Then it can fizzle out of a rep was stagnant and uninspired.
IMPORTANT: During the first 2 campaigns as a new Avon Rep, if you/your recruit doesn’t place an order, (for any amount) you/they almost never will.
Keep A Business Activity Journal
No one knows more than I do how disappointing it feels to have no orders coming in.
If you allow that emotion to lose your steam, you’ll quit before you get started.
For self accountability purposes, journal the 3 things you do every day to help your business. On a side note, some days you will feel like nothing is working! But don’t stop!
When I would write blogs and post them online, for months there were no likes or comments.
Even today, my blogs don’t receive lots of interaction. But KEEP BLOGGING (if that’s what you do). Google likes it.
Don’t compare yourself to other Reps.
In this business, competition is high but there’s PLENTY of room for everyone. There are currently no Avon Reps who have gone viral on Youtube.
There are no Avon Representative MUA’s that are well known within the company. (Outside of Avon execs)
The lane is wide open for someone much less shy than I am to kick down the Avon myths. But even if you’re shy, keep going. Don’t stop.
Find a way to gauge what’s working and what’s not and keep what’s working. The biggest mistake Avon Reps make is giving up too soon.
Know your local area demographic.
Do you live in a military community? Or maybe a tourist/beach area? Or a small town?
This is important because depending on your area, your marketing will vary.
For instance, small town residents will be able to connect with local businesses that they see regularly. In this case, I would begin by connecting with them on Instagram or Facebook.
After commenting and engaging with them there, you may send a message asking if they’d like you to drop off AN AVON BOOK.
Your mission is to eventually turn them into online shoppers here so only leave one book.
Next, make sure your book has an easy way to receive a digital brochure link via email or text.
Anyone in the office who wants a book can receive a shopping link this way. You’ll only use one book and you’ll gain more customers.
Rewards will come!
Just so you know, this is what the email notification looks like when someone joins or inquires about joining your Avon team.
Self appointment means that someone has signed up with you as a mentor. Contact that person immediately and welcome them.
I also like to add them to Facebook so that I can also add them to the big Avon groups.
Use Samples Wisely
If you can, always get 2 referrals from each sample. When you sell Avon, advertise that you’re giving away samples on Facebook locally or ask the library if you can host an Avon fundraiser event there.
The library always has a media room and they will advertise your event for you as well. Community libraries will often times do this free of charge.
Avon fundraising is something I’ve always wanted to try and haven’t done it yet!
