How to Earn Your All-Inclusive Trip to Jamaica

Avon’s latest amazing trip incentive for representatives is the “Make It Jamaica” incentive, where ALL Avon representatives have the opportunity to EARN a 4-night/5-day all-inclusive trip (including airfare, hotel/airport transfers, hotel accommodations, food, drinks, and more) to Montego Bay, Jamaica.

The trip can be earned between Campaign 1, 2019 – Campaign 26, 2019, through a variety of methods, which are each outlined in full, official detail under the Sales Incentives section of avonnow.com.

In this post, I’m going to offer an “in a nutshell” look at four different ways  for representatives to earn the “Make It Jamaica” incentive, along with tips specific for each pathway to Jamaica.

First, let’s start with a few general tips, as you approach your plan…

GENERAL TIPS:

Jump in with both feet right NOW. At this point, we are halfway through the incentive period. There is currently still plenty of time to earn the trip, but the longer you wait, the more challenging it will be. Make a plan, but don’t get stuck in the in the planning process. Get that plan into motion ASAP! You can always adjust the plan as you move along.

Know where you are and where you’re going. Be sure to check out your personal incentive tracker under the “Get Details” link for the Make It Jamaica incentive (under the Sales Incentives section on avonnow.com). The tracker will show your current progress towards the goals, so that you can develop your plan for the remainder of the sales year.

Believe in your ability to earn this trip (because you CAN). Don’t let self-doubt hold you back from giving it everything you’ve got! Jump in and go for it!! Everything you do as you work towards this trip will help you to build a stronger, more profitable business in the process.

Be willing to step outside of your comfort zone and try new things. If the current way that you’ve been working your business is not producing the results which will get you on that trip, then it’s time to try something new! The same old behaviors are likely to produce the same old results. If you want different results, do different things!

Evaluate your progress every campaign and adjust your plan as necessary. If you’re not progressing as quickly as you need to, rework your plan to stay on track. Use the personal incentive tracker, which I mentioned previously, to track your progress and adjust your plan.

Plan to achieve the trip in less time than you actually have. You have until Campaign 26 to earn the trip. Plan as if you only have until Campaign 24. That way, you’ll have two full campaigns to catch up, if everything doesn’t go according to your plan.

Now, let’s take a look at the four current ways to earn the trip to Jamaica, along with tips for each…

Tips to Earn Through Personal Sales (with 25% or 50%  of sales online):

Online Fundraisers – Online fundraisers can be a fantastic way to raise both your overall sales and the percent coming from online orders. They are a convenient way for organizations, groups, clubs, teams, etc. to raise money they need, and so simple for reps to register and manage. Best of all, they are a fantastic way to make connections with new potential lifelong customers, who all remain linked with you as their Avon rep (unless they are already linked with another rep) even after the fundraiser has concluded. TIP: Check out the Fundraising course in Avon U for detailed info on how to register and run an online fundraiser.

Digital Brochure Link – Utilize the totally FREE digital brochure link (available through your online store) to share the brochure with more potential customers each campaign. Every campaign, send the link to everyone you know, everywhere across the United States. Customers can easily click any product image to add the item to their online shopping cart. The more people you share the link with each campaign, the higher your overall sales (and the percent of online sales) will rise. The best part here is that it’s a FREE way to promote your business!

Social Media – Regularly utilize all available social media tools (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.) to promote your business. Utilize our FREE social media tool, Avon Social, to easily post thousands of eye-catching photos and videos to your social media. Include your web store link with every post. Be sure to also include you own personal photos, selfies, and authentic testimonials. The personal touch makes a difference! TIP: Be consistent with your use of social media! Create engagement, generate interest, and give your efforts time to produce results.

Online Parties – Host online parties as an easy way to connect with new customers online. It can be as simple as setting up a group on Facebook, inviting guests (or asking your online party hostess to invite their guests) to the group, then posting tons of pics and videos to show all of the great products Avon offers. Playing simple games, asking questions, and offering giveaways can help to boost participation and engagement. Utilize Avon Social to help with the product posts!

Refer-a-Friend – Utilize your current customers to connect with new customers. Ask you current customers to share the brochure or your online store link with people they know who may be interested in Avon. Offer them a thank you gift or discount in return for their support.

Tips to Earn Through Team Sales:

Grow Your Team –  The bigger your team grows, the easier it will be to hit your total team sales goal. Reach out to old leads, invest in new leads, and generate your own personal leads through prospecting, advertising, and sharing the opportunity with everyone you know.

Reengage Inactive/Removed/Discontinued Team Members – Reach out to team members who have not been active to lend a hand. Let them know the most exciting Avon news and offer help with getting their businesses back on track.

Product Training – The more informed your team members are about the products, the better prepared they’ll be to sell them. Avon provides us with a long list of excellent product training resources, such as product education videos, Campaign Insider videos, resources in Avon U, the What’s New catalog, and more! Stay alert for those resources and share them with your team. You can also share your own personal testimonials of the products with your team members, to excite and educate!

Sales Training – Support your team members in learning how to effectively sell the products, both online and through the brochures. The monthly Avon-hosted Virtual Sales Meeting and the bi-monthly Campaign Insider videos are great resources for tips on how to sell the products. Watch those videos, encourage your team members to watch the videos, and highlight the most valuable points as you communicate with your team members. TIP: Be sure to follow the Avon USA Representatives Facebook page to be notified when live product/sales training videos are taking place!

Be a Role Model For Sales Success – Practice what you preach (and preach what you practice). Dedicate yourself to boosting your own personal sales. Be brave and step outside of your own comfort zone to experiment with new strategies. Share your results with your team to inspire them to try new things too. TIP: Pay special attention to strategies which boost online sale, in order to meet the required 25% or 50% of your team sales goal from online sales.

Book Parties – Hosting “Book Parties” can be a great way to get more printed brochures in front of more eyes.

They collect orders and payments from their friends, which they turn over to you. In return, you thank your “hostess” with free Avon gifts or a discount on their own purchases. TIP: If they enjoy hosting the “book party” ask them if they’d like to be your regular helper or even a member of your team!

Vendor Events – Seek out vendor events in your area to set up an Avon table. Events can be an effective way to gain both on-the-spot sales and new lifelong customers. Always offer a free raffle basket at your table as a way to attract attention and collect contact info for follow-up afterwards.

Tips to Earn for Leaders (through Qualified New Recruits):

Kickstart – Make sure that you understand the Kickstart program for new reps and can communicate it clearly with your new team members. Helping your new team members to get the most out of the Kickstart program will help YOU to gain the Qualified New Recruits you need. Through Kickstart, new reps get 40% earnings on all sales, of any amount, in their 1st campaign. In their 2nd campaign, they can achieve that 40% earnings level again when they reach their 2nd campaign Kickstart sales goal of $150+. Reaching that goal puts good money in your new team member’s pockets. And for you, when your new team member reaches sales of $150+ in their 1st or 2nd campaign, they become a “Qualified New Recruit” which counts towards your Jamaica goal! Win-Win!!

Generate Personal Leads – Share the Avon opportunity with everyone you know. Message people you know who could benefit from earning extra funds on their own schedule. Ask current customers if they’d be interested in the discount they could be enjoying on their personal purchases as an Avon representative. Talk to people about the Avon opportunity at events and everywhere you go. Include information about buying OR selling Avon on brochures and in all of your communications.

Reach Out to Old Leads – Send an email to all of your contacts who have previously expressed interest or requested information about becoming an Avon representative. Share some of the most exciting Avon updates, your favorite new products, and the top reasons you love being an Avon rep. Offer to provide additional information about getting started with their own Avon business!

Invest in New ALMA Leads – If eligible, invest in new ALMA leads as your budget allows. Make the most of your investment by following up with all leads in a timely manner and through a variety of methods (call, email, mail, etc.) over the course of about a week. When they sign-up, give them a great, big welcome and all of the support they need for a successful start. Maintain contact information for all of your unconverted leads, for continued occasional follow-up (unless they’ve requested not to be contacted any longer). TIP: The faster you follow-up with leads, the better the results!

Discontinued Team Members – View your “Discontinued” report under the Team Reports section of avonnow.com. These are former team members whose accounts have been fully removed from Avon’s system. Reach out to invite them to give Avon another try. Let them know about some of the latest tools, resources, and products, which can help them to find greater success as they relaunch their business.

Pending Team Members – View your “Pending Appointments” report under the Team Reports section of avonnow.com. These are team members who have signed up, but not yet placed a first order. Reach out to offer your support in helping them launch their Avon business. Show them the ropes, so that they can get a great start with their new business. TIP: Be sure they know about the Kickstart program for new reps, so they can maximize their earnings and YOU can gain those Qualified New Recruits! Win-Win!!
