Are you Prepared?

Happy October

Are you Prepared? Part One
We are in our busiest time of the year.  This is a fantastic time to find new customers and to increase the orders from your existing customers. 

Every day there are things we need to make sure are in place so that we can take advantage of every opportunity to expand our business that presents itself.

We need to make sure that we have the supplies we need wherever we go.  The essential supplies are:
1. Brochures – These are your store.  You need to be sure you have a brochure handy anytime you meet someone you would like to invite into your store.  You can also leave them places you visit or pass during your day such as:
        Waiting rooms
        Your customer’s neighbors
        Leave a few extra with an existing customer to pass on to friends or co-workers
2. Business Cards – are a small but powerful tool in getting your name out as the Avon Lady in your area, and anywhere you go.  And they can go places our brochures sometimes can’t
    Bulletin boards or the car next to yours in the parking lot or the mirror in the public bathroom.
    Some businesses will have a place where you can leave a small stack of cards for their customers to pick one up.
    Hand one to the people you meet but don’t get a chance to connect with.

3. Notepad and Pen – This is probably the most valuable tool of all.
        Take down information for the people you want to follow up with
        Write down orders you get while you are out so they are all together until you can get them entered on
        Make note of anything you promised to find out and get back to someone on. Don’t trust your memory no matter how good it is..always write it down and be sure to follow through.
