I’m going to walk you through a few of first steps you can take right NOW to launch your new business and begin earning!!

 

1. Register on the Representative Web Site– The first thing you should do after signing up is go to www.avonnow.com (the representative web site, where you will monitor and manage your business) to register using your account number. 

 
 

2. Record Your Log-in Info – Once you register on the representative site, you will set up a password for future log-ins. Be sure to record your password somewhere safe.

 
 

3. Activate and Share Your Online Store – The next step will be to activate your personal online Avon store. Don’t worry! It’s super easy! Avon has everything all set up for you. All you’ll need to do is to confirm the online store address that Avon has made for you or customize your own!

 

As soon as you do that, your web site will be ready for you or your customers to shop from! Share your link with everyone you know (by email, messenger, and on social media) and invite them to be one of your 1st customers!!

 

Through Avon’s Rapid Pay feature, you can have your earnings on online orders direct-deposited to your bank within two days of the order shipping. To sign up for direct deposit of your online earnings, go to the My Account link on youravon.com (top right corner) and select “Get Paid By Avon”. Click HERE for more info about how you get paid on your Avon sales.

 
 
 

4. Start Exploring and Learning – There is a ton of useful information on the representative web site. Start exploring to learn your way around. Be sure to visit the AVON U TRAINING link in the top left corner of the page. You will be able to complete self-paced online courses there, to help you with your business! I highly recommend that you complete the “Shortcuts to Success” and “Building an Online Business” courses. Take as much training as you’d like! Learn about products, selling online, fundraising, and more! It’s all FREE!

 
 

5. Place Your 1st Order and Earn Free Gifts and Rewards– You can place your 1st order on avonnow.com ANYTIME! Your first order is a great time to order brochures, samples, and products you’d like to try at a discount!  

 

Starting out, you’ll get a 25% discount/earnings on all beauty purchases/sales as long as you have at least $40 in total purchases/sales in that two-week campaign period. You’ll achieve higher earnings percents, with no required minimum sales, as you reach the sales achievement levels of “Premier” and then “President’s Club”.  

 

As a new representative, you’re also eligible to receive a variety of free gifts and bonus rewards as you launch your new business. Check out the pic below for an overview of the current rewards for new reps!

Put it on all brochures that you pass out. Include it when you promote your Avon business on Facebook and other social media.

TIP: If you’ve never shopped your own online store before, give it a try so that you can experience exactly what your customers will experience! You will then be better prepared to walk your customers through the easy process!

How To Sell Avon – In 10 Simple Steps

If you’re just getting started, you might be feeling overwhelmed by all of the things you need to learn. You likely have tons of questions about the products, how to find customers, how to sell the products, how to place orders, how you’ll get paid, and more!

Don’t worry! It’s totally normal to have a lot of questions when you’re starting something new.  Don’t let your questions stop you from jumping in! You don’t need to learn everything all at once. Just take it one step at a time, and reach out to your upline mentor whenever you’re feeling stuck or confused.

Selling Avon the traditional way (with printed brochures) is really pretty simple – Pass out the brochures, then follow-up to collect orders.

In this blog post, I’ve broken down how to sell Avon (using the brochures) into 10 very simple, uncomplicated steps. I’ve also provided links to more tips, information, and tutorials for many of the steps. In a separate blog post (HERE), I’ll explain how you can sell Avon online, utilizing your online store and the digital brochures.

How to Sell Avon (using the brochures):

  1. Order Brochures
  2. Label Brochures
  3. Pass Out Brochures
  4. Follow-Up
  5. Create Order Invoice
  6. Collect Payment
  7. Enter and Submit Orders
  8. Track Your Order
  9. Prepare Orders
  10. Deliver Orders

Step 1: Order Brochures For the Upcoming Campaign – You can find the complete campaign order schedule on the representative site (www.avonnow.com). Order brochures for the upcoming campaign(s) on avonnow.com (Click “Order Products”, then select “Brochures & Flyers”)

TIP: You may wish to order brochures two campaigns ahead of time, so that you can pass out brochures and collect orders BEFORE the ordering window opens for that campaign. Placing orders early in each campaign’s ordering window ensures the best product availability.

Step 2: Label Brochures – Put your contact info and your online store link on the back of those brochures, so that customers can order the way they prefer – by contacting you or through your online store.

Step 3: Pass Out Brochures – Give those brochures to potential customers.

More Info: Click HERE for tips on building your customer list.

Step 4: Follow-Up – Follow-up with the people you gave brochures to a few days later. Offer to answer any questions, suggest some things they may like, and ask if there’s anything they’d like to order this campaign.

Step 5: Create an Order Invoice – Utilize the Customer Invoicing Tool (located in the Web Office section of avonnow.com) to create an invoice (receipt) for the customer’s order. Click HERE for a tutorial on how to use the Customer Invoicing Tool.

Step 6: Collect Payment – Collect payment from the customer.

TIP: It’s ultimately your choice whether you collect payment upfront or when you deliver, but be aware that you will be required to pay Avon when you submit the orders. Collecting payment upfront ensures that you always have the funds you need to make your payment. 

More Info: Click HERE for tips about collecting payment from customers and paying Avon.

Step 7: Enter and Submit Orders to Avon – Add the customer’s items into your order cart of avonnow.com and submit the orders to Avon.

TIP: Submitting all of the orders you’ve collected for the campaign, from all customers, at the same time will save you on shipping. Add whatever business tools or personal items you need at the same time, so it’s all under one shipping fee.

More Info: Click HERE for a video tutorial on how to place an order.

Step 8: Track Your Order – You will receive a confirmation email after you submit your order, then another email once the order has billed (officially processed). You will then receive an email once your order has shipped. You can track your order under the “Manage Orders” tab on avonnow.com

Step 9: Prepare Orders When your shipment arrives (a few business days after you submit it), sort the items and place them in bags for each customer. Include a new brochure and samples with each order.

Step 10: Deliver Orders – Deliver orders to each customer. Collect payment for any orders you did not collect payment for upfront. Be sure to thank each customer for their order, then follow-up within a few days to see how they like their items and if there’s anything they’d like to order from the new brochure.
