Business Bank Account

Today I made a Commitment to my AVON Business.  I opened a separate account designated for my AVON business only.  It is through my primary bank, Bank of America and the new account is an E-account.  This means that all transaction will take place through an ATM with online statements and transactions.

I began the account with 25.00 from my savings account and I will consider this an investment in myself.  
Update:  I have my first recruit!  This is very exciting for me.  I am on my way to building my AVON business. I am going to help her grow her business too!

Avon addiction getting hard to handle?

Schedule an AVON "Book Party" and receive FREE AVON when your friends, family and coworkers purchase through you, their hostess.  A minimum of 5 "guest orders" is required.

Step 1:  Call or email me to schedule your book party. No refreshments to buy, no babysitter required!  I'll provide you with the brochures, an order book and a collection envelope.

Step 2:  Talk to everyone you know!  The more orders you get, the more FREE AVON you will earn! Contact me when you've collected all your orders.  I'll drop by to pick up your order book.  I'll call you a few days later with everyone's order totals so you can collect their $$.

Step 3:  I'll deliver all the orders to you, after you've collected everyone's money.

Step 4:  Shop for your FREE AVON.

$100 book party = $20 in FREE AVON

$200 book party = $40 in FREE AVON

$300 book party = $60 in FREE AVON

$400+ book party = $80 in FREE AVON. 

If you get $400+ in orders then you should be selling AVON yourself.  I'll pay your $10 Representative appointment fee and you can earn up to 50% on all orders!!!

Start your party now!!

Tossing AVON Books Information

I received a question regarding the "tossing" of my Avon Books. This question comes from Marc in New York

"Dear Lisa,

I noticed on your blog that you said that you tossed about 200 books? Forgive me for sounding ignorant.  When you say tossed are speaking from a literal standpoint, by tossing them out of your car window as you drive by an address or are simply speaking of door-hanging that many books?

I am a relatively new representative and have only been with AVON for only about 1 month. Just looking for as many ideas as I can which will help me grow my business.

Marc Schreiber
AVON Sales Leader

Marc, thanks for your question and I hope you don't mind that I am responding to you on my blog.  I figured that if one person had a question, there might be others that have a question too.

Simply, when I tossed the books, I literally drove up and down streets in my neighborhood and "tossed" the books onto their driveways.  The next batch of books that I toss, I am going to definitely put a date on the back stating when the campaign ends.

I am also going to compose a brief note stating that I am an AVON Rep in their area, and I hope that they understand that in today's world it is safer to toss a brochure in the driveway than to walk up to to the door.  I will encourage them to give me a call, and hope that I will grow my business that way.

Hope this helps!

Tossing AVON Books Update

I have"tossed" about 120 AVON books so far.  If you see my previous post, I explain where I got the extra books to toss.  As of this evening, I got two calls about AVON.  The first phone call was from a woman that wanted to start selling AVON again.  Evidently she sold AVON in New York and is ready to come back and start again now that she lives in Florida.  My DSM is going to follow up with her on Friday. 
I also got a call from neighbor about 2 streets over.  She placed a nice size order, and after talking for a few minutes we discovered that we have friends in common.  Small world.

There is about 80  more books to be tossed, and I am thinking about tossing them in another neighborhood that is slightly more affluent.  Consider it a social experiment of sorts. 

How are you doing in your AVON adventures?

Tossing AVON Books

This morning I am going Tossing. Tossing is an easy way to canvas the whole neighborhood with my AVON books. Saturday, my district manager sent out an Email to everyone that there were books left over from the last campaign. I went to the office and picked up 3 boxes of books (180 catalogs total) and brought them home. I prepared a label, printed out about 7 sheets of them and began sticking the labels on the books. I then stuffed each book into an AVON door hanger bag. I was going to toss them last night, but I will try to get most of them tossed this morning before work.

Will this provide me with more AVON customers?  I have tried this in the past, ( several years ago while in school) and it did give me about 2 -3 steady customers.  I will let you know how it goes in a couple of days.
