Where Can I Find Avon Customers?

Where Can I Find Avon Customers?

Once you start thinking about becoming an Avon Representative, one of the first questions you will typically ask yourself is where will I get customers to sell to? And that's a good question to be asking. Figuring out who you will sell to and how is one of the first steps of getting your Avon business started.

Who will you approach?

Everyone is a potential customer or recruit. With your online store you can serve customers anywhere in the united states so you are not limited to people that you see face to face.

Our job as representatives is not to decide who would or wouldn't be interested in being an Avon customer or representative but to let them know what we have to offer and let them make the choice for themselves. We really do have something to offer just about every home from the skincare, makeup and personal care products we're known for to everyday essentials like oral care and hair care to fashion and household cleaning.

Of course there will be people you approach who are not interested, or it's just not the right time for them to look at Avon, and that's okay. Just know that the more people you ask, the more yeses you'll get, as well as lots of maybes that can turn into yeses down the road.

How to Use the Avon Sweepstakes

How to the Use Avon Sweepstakes 

Avon provides us with a great tool for helping to build our marketing list with the Avon Sweepstakes.  

 

What is Avon Sweepstakes?

 

Avon Sweepstakes is a giveaway that Avon runs offering a large prize package in a random drawing.  Anyone can enter and Representatives can share a unique link to the entry form that then links that entry to our personal Avon website. 

 

Why do I want to share the Sweepstakes?

 

When someone visits your unique sweepstakes link and enters, they have the option to be added to your address book and receive the marketing emails from Avon.  When they do, they will start receiving the professionally designed emails that Avon sends to anyone we have in our address book who has opted in to receive them. While not everyone who gets these emails will become a customer, many of them will eventually place an order.  


Where do I find Avon Sweepstakes?

 

 As a Representative, when you log into Avon.com you are seeing a view of the website that has features specific to Representatives. When customers visit your online store they see just those things specific for customers.  This usually means that we see everything a customer does plus the representative features.  In the case of the Sweepstakes, that feature is for customers and does not display for representatives so it does not show on our view of the website. 

 

Because of this you will need to visit your online store without logging in.  To do this use your online store link, avon.com/repstore/(YOURREPID), then do not sign in.  If your device logs you in automatically you'll want to sign out by going to where it says "Hi YourName" at the top of the page, then click/tap Sign Out. You can also use a private browsing or incognito window in your internet browser. 

 

Once you are viewing your online store as a customer would, there are 3 places you can find the Sweepstakes. 

 

1. On your Online Store, the banner for the sweepstakes will be right next to your picture/under your header banner

 

 

2. Under Special Offers there will be a box for the sweepstakes in the list of offers

 

 

3. Under Featured in the menu on the left


 

How do I share the Sweepstakes?

 

Once you have accessed the Sweepstakes page via one of the above options, copy the url from the address bar of your browser. Be sure you see your RepId in the url, it will look like ?rep=(YourRepId). You can then share that url just about anywhere and invite your contacts to enter. Some of the places you could share would include:

 

In a text message, email or direct message to someone who might like to enter

 

On Social Media. I personally like to take the picture of what is included in the prize package and use Canva to make a visually attractive graphic to include with the link on social media to get the post more attention. Here's what that graphic might look like:

 

 

For the text of the post I would of course include the url, and I'll often copy the description of the prize from the entry page

 


 

When talking to new contacts when you're out an about. I like to save the link on my phone so I can quickly copy and paste it into a text message or email when I'm talking to someone about Avon. I can also go right to the sweepstakes on my phone or tablet and let someone enter right there

 

When you are set up at a vendor event you can have a sign with a picture of the prize and the link to enter, or create a QR code to invite people who visit your table to enter.

 

If you have a blog, you can create a post promoting the Sweepstakes. You can see an example of one of my sweepstakes blog posts here.

Setting up a Google My Business Page for your Avon Busiiness

Setting up a Google My Business Page for your Avon Business

 Google My Business Logo Vector Logo - Download Free SVG Icon |  Worldvectorlogo

If you are looking to expand your Avon business beyond your current contacts, a great way to do that is with a Google My Business page.  Google My Business is a free and easy-to-use tool for businesses and organizations to manage their online presence across Google, including Search and Maps.
 
Having a Google My Business Profile allows local customers who may be looking for an Avon Representative to find you when the search online.
This is not the same as Avon's Find a Rep feature on Avon.com 

I get several calls a month from people looking for a representative, and have picked up many new customers that have found me this way. 

Some tips to keep in mind if you are going to be listed on Google.  
 
1. Answer your phone!  While I do have it set up where people can message me through my Google listing, the vast majority of them call me.  If I don't answer my phone when they call only about 1 in 4 will leave a voicemail, the rest move on to the next representative in the search results, or simply forget to call back.  You will get more sales if you answer the phone live whenever possible.
 
2. Consider having a few key items on hand. While many of the calls I get from my Google listing are looking for a traditional representative connection, I do get calls from people who are looking to get a favorite product quickly.  I make note of what things people ask for when they call and try to have one of those items on hand for immediate needs. The 3 things I get the most requests for are Skin So Soft Bath Oil, Moisture Therapy Intensive Hand Cream and Silicone Glove Hand Cream.
 
3. Remember that you will not be the perfect choice for every customer.  While you want to accommodate as many customers requests as possible to increase sales, you are allowed to set boundaries in terms of things like when and where you will deliver, and how you handle payments.  Don't be afraid to politely say no if you feel you will not be a good match for a particular customer.
 
You can access Google My Business online by going to business.google.com. You can also find the Google My Business app in both the App Store or the Google Play Store. Once there you can follow the steps to set up and verify your business and customize the information potential customers can see when they find you online. 

Here is an example of what your Google My Business listing could look like
My Google Listing
You can also see other examples in the list on the left of that page. 
 
2 Wonderful Top Selling Representatives who sell mainly online have created step by step guides for setting up Google My Business so I will share those here because they are truly the experts on online marketing and I have found both of their tutorials to be very easy to follow.
