Intro
Congratulations again on starting your Avon business.  I do hope we've had a chance to chat, but if we haven't I would really love to get to know a little about you and what brought you to Avon. 

Over the next couple of weeks I'll be sending a series of emails with tips for getting your business going.  Since we all have different goals for our business and how we want to work it, there may be tips that don't apply to you or that you aren't ready to implement right away.  Please know that none of these tips are intended to pressure you to do more than you are wanting to do, they are intended to help you get moving in whatever direction you want to take your business. 

If you'd like to move more quickly through these tips than one a day, you can see the entire series on the New Representative Training page on our team website. You'll also find lots of other information helpful for new representatives on that page. 

Please feel free to reach out any time I may be of assistance with this or any other topic.
If you would prefer to receive these by text or messenger just let me know.

Day 1
Today is the first day of the new campaign. Take a look at the new brochure to get familiar with the current sales and new products. Be sure to let your customers and prospects know there's a new brochure with new products and offers for them to see. 

A new campaign also means new preview products for upcoming campaigns.  Be sure to pick out a new product that you'd like to try or share with your customers. 
You can find the online brochure and What's New flyer with the preview products on AvonNow. Simply click on Browse Products then Shop Our Brochures.

Day 2 
Decide what day you will send your order for the campaign. You can find the campaign calendar on the main page on AvonNow. 

I find that it works well for me and my customers to order the same day every campaign, but the beauty of flexible ordering is you can order when it works best for you, even if that is a different day each campaign.  I recommend submitting on any day except the last day of the campaign because life has a way of getting in the way of the best laid plans and you don't want to have to worry about missing out on an incentive or a special sale price because the order ended up getting pushed into the next campaign. Click HERE for more tips about choosing an order day.

When you place your order, be sure to order your brochures 2 campaigns out so you will be ready to sell the new campaign as soon as the next order goes in. For example, if you are placing your Campaign 5 order you would order Campaign 7 books. You would already have your Campaign 6 brochures on your Campaign 4 order so you will be ready to start selling Campaign 6 as soon as you've completed your Campaign 5 order instead of waiting for your Campaign 5 shipment to arrive. If you are ordering the same day every campaign, that gives you the full two weeks to share each campaign's brochures and collect orders. 


Day 3
Pick a product you'd like to try yourself.  Not sure what to try? How about something you're about to run out of that you were buying somewhere else? Or you can't go wrong with a good facial moisturizer. Need help picking the right product? I'm here to help. 

When we use Avon products ourselves we are better able to sell the products to others.  Not only does it give us a first hand testimonial of the products to share with our customers,  but it also shows our confidence in the value and benefits of our products.  After all, if we don't use our products, why would we expect anyone else to use them. 

Day 4
Want to promote your business on Facebook?  Since Facebook prohibits using your personal profile for business purposes you'll need to set up a Facebook Page for your business.  That will act as your "storefront" on Facebook. Our Learning and Development team has put together a step by step guide for how to set that up.  To find this training module, click on Avon U at the top of the page/menu on AvonNow, then search for 'How Facebook Can Help Your Business'. 

Day 5
Start your Avon U Training by clicking on Avon U at the top of the page/menu on AvonNow.  Avon U has training on a wide variety of topics related to your Avon business.  Each module only takes about 5-15 minutes to complete so it's very easy to work into your day.  You could complete a module a day with Breakfast or Lunch or you could commit to completing a module before you start scrolling through Facebook or firing up your online/mobile game. 

Avon has set up Avon U to take you through the topics in Avon U in the order that makes sense for most new representatives. You can also use the search feature at the top of the page to find any topic you would like to explore. 

Day 6
Share your online store or a brochure with a friend who loves beauty. Invite them to check out the many new products we have to offer.  The easiest way to share the online brochure is to click on Browse Products then View Online Brochure on AvonNow, then click the cover of the brochure. You'll see the option to share with customers above the book with links for sharing on Facebook (including Messanger), Pinterest, Twitter or email.  If you're on a mobile device you will also see the option to share by text. 

If you want to offer a more interactive experience with videos, tutorials and a tool to try on makeup colors virtually, click on Digital Catalog on AvonNow.com and look for the share icon under the picture of the brochure cover.

Day 7
Check out the Product One-Pagers for our key products. These are a great way to get to know our products and have a better idea of what products to recommend to which customers. You can find the One-Pagers by going to AvonNow -> Avon U -> click on One Pagers in the menu

You can also visit the product pages on our online store (where our customers shop, youravon.com/your rep ID) and read the information there, including customer reviews.  

Pick a product a day, or a few products a week to learn about and before you know it, you'll be a product expert. 

Day 8
Avon has created a private Facebook group just for representatives.  The majority of our training is done via Facebook Live in this group and you can view past training videos there as well. You can find pictures to use on social media in the albums on the media/photos tab. 

Be sure to watch your email for important emails from Avon.  In particular watch for the Beauty Buzz email every Monday with all the latest news from Avon.   Alternatively you can schedule time every Monday to visit the Beauty Buzz page under the Manage Business tab on AvonNow. 

Day 9
Invite your contacts to enter Avon's Monthly Sweepstakes.  It's a great way to generate leads through your online store at no cost to you.  Take the Avon U module titled Avon Sweepstakes to learn how to add the Sweepstakes entry link  to your online store .  Once you've added the Sweepstakes to your online store, visit your online store and scroll down to where it says "I Feel Lucky" and click that link.  Copy the url(with your repid) from the address bar and share that on social media, or in a text, email or private message.

Check your address book in the Web Office on AvonNow regularly for new contacts.  In the address book click on Groups, then New Customers.  I recommend add them to a group in the address book (I call my group Prospects) so you can easily send them Promotional Codes to your new contacts that have not yet placed an order. For more information on Promotional Codes, take the Avon U module titled Creating a Promotion Offer

Day 10

Join the Sunrise Beauty Team group on Facebook.  This is a private group just for our team where we share ideas, information, ask questions and support each other.  

You'll also want to join the Meetings with the Sunrise Beauty Team group on Facebook if you are interested in our team meetings and group training.  Our team hosts a Lunch and Learn every 4th Monday (the day before even numbered campaigns end) where we share new products, new programs and incentives and share ideas for making your business the best it can be.  Since we understand that it's impossible for everyone who wants to join us to do so in person we broadcast the meeting live on Facebook.  We also post the recording of the meeting in the group for anyone who can't join us live. 

We also do other training such as our Power Hours where we learn how to do something new and put it in practice right away.
