Lots of changes in the Avon world, not least of which is that all reps can now have their own Avon Store! (Went live last week.) We can also now recruit/sign up new reps remotely via FB etc. although a personal face to face visit further down the line is recommended. (Sure it doesn't always happen....)
Very informative but the original post on the first page is now out of date in a lot of ways....
Appreciate your post is very old now but.... we're all encouraged to contact anyone showing interest in being an Avon rep within 24 hours. If you're still looking and need help, just ask.
Yes all new reps are offered territory if they want it. It's not obligatory though; you're not under any pressure to hit any target unless you want additional territory over and above what you're initially allocated. Some reps don't have any territory at all, preferring just to show their book (s) to family and friends. There's also the concept of Personal Shopper where a rep just prefers to order from 'First Look' (our rep book) and goods are discounted by up to 70%.
The sales 'targets' as such just dictate what level of discount a rep gets on their orders ie orders £87+ = 20% discount from customer book; orders £160+ = 25% discount. Campaigns are usually 3 weeks long and whilst avon do like reps to order every campaign I just ask my team members to let me know if they prefer to skip a campaign or two - no problem.
HTH - good luck!
Well done you! When you get your first order it's a bit like Christmas :-) When you have everything parcelled up it's a good idea to call/text your customers to confirm their order's arrived, the amount due and when you'll be delivering. Hopefully then they'll have the monies ready for you. Don't hand over any goods if they don't have the cash; instead give them the next book, tell them when you'll be collecting it and you'll bring their order back again then (checking of course that they can have the cash by then). That way no extra trip for you and no chance of you not being able to pay your Avon invoice. If they're very close by though you might like to offer to pop back earlier (or sometimes customers offer to collect from you when they can pay for their order).
Im really struggling with avon right now!!!
ive done 3 campaigns and only made £12 ish each one! Not really worth it for the effort ive been putting it.
Ive delivered my orders and given the customers who ordered £10+ a loyalty card
Also, ive told my friends that if they introduce me a customer and they order £10+ they will receive a stamp in their card.
so, if they get me 2 new customers that spend £10+ and they spend £10+ themselves, then they'll get 3 stamps!
How does this sound?
