NEW AVON REPS – How to Earn a Cruise Vacation + Nearly $5000 by August!!

Greetings, Beauty Boss!!

If you’ve just recently started your Avon business, this post is for YOU!

One of the many wonderful things about Avon is the flexibility. As an Avon representative, YOU get to choose how Avon fits into your life.

For some reps, it’s as simple as saving on their own beauty products. Other reps come to Avon to make a little extra pocket money, while still others come to Avon to replace a part-time (or even full-time) job!

Ultimately, the rewards you reap from your Avon business will vary depending on YOU, your personal goals, and what you’re willing to do to achieve those goals.

If you are a new Avon rep who is determined to make the most of your new business and take advantage of every available incentive to earn the most money and even an all-inclusive cruise vacation, then this post is for YOU!

I’m going to outline how new Avon reps (anyone who placed a 1st order in C24 ’19 or later) can earn nearly $5000 AND an all-inclusive 5-night/6-day cruise, on board Royal Caribbean’s Odyssey of the Seas between NOW (Campaign 5 ’20) and the end of Campaign 17 ’20 (8/4/20).

Are you ready??

First, there are two current Avon incentives you should know about:

  1. Pathway to Premier
  2. Destination Avon – Caribbean Odyssey

I’m going to briefly explain both incentives below, and then we’ll dive into a plan which would help you to achieve the maximum bonuses from Pathway to Premier AND the cruise vacation!!

PATHWAY TO PREMIER

This is Avon’s new program for new representatives, which began in Campaign 5 ’20. Through Pathway to Premier, new representatives can earn two types of bonuses (on top of their regular 25% commission on beauty, jewelry, and wellness sales; 20% on fashion/home) during their first EIGHT campaigns with Avon (or until they reach $5000 in total sales – whichever happens first).

For representatives starting in C5 ’20 or later, your first “Pathway to Premier” campaign begins whenever you place an order through the representative site (avonnow.com) or a customer places an order through your online store (www.youravon.com/______)

For representatives who already placed a 1st order between C24 ’19 – C4 ’20, your eight “Pathway to Premier” campaigns begin in C5 ’20.

Here is the Pathway to Premier flyer, which outlines the bonuses which can be earned during your eight “Pathway to Premier” campaigns.

At the program’s max, you could be looking at $3250 in earnings and bonuses. That’s what we’re going to aim for in the plan I’ll outline below!

DESTINATION AVON – CARIBBEAN ODYSSEY

This incentive, which runs from C1 ’20 – C17 ’20 is open for ALL Avon representatives to earn, by achieving a sales goal determined by sales achievement level and length of time as an Avon representative.

Reach your sales goal to earn an all-inclusive 5-night/6-day cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Odyssey of the Seas (November 9-14).

For NEW REPS (in this case, anyone who started in C1 ’19 or later), the sales goal to earn the TRIP FOR ONE is $10,000 between C1 ’20 – C17 ’20. The sales goal for the TRIP FOR TWO is $15,000.

Here’s the official flyer for the Destination Avon incentive…

So, now that you know about these two exciting opportunities, let’s break down what it would take for you to earn it ALL! After I break down the plan, I’ll outline a few tips for success!

If you’re starting right now, in Campaign 5 2020, you’ve got a total of 13 campaigns to reach the $10,000 in sales necessary to earn the cruise. That means that you need about $770 in sales each campaign between C5 – C17. For simplicity, let’s round up to $800 in sales each campaign (because what’s another $30 in sales, right??).

If you sell $800 each campaign, between C5 – C17, watch how the Pathway to Premier bonuses stack up, as you land yourself on the cruise vacation!

Keep the following in mind:

  1. You’ll earn 25% commission on all beauty, jewelry, and wellness sales (as long as your total sales for the campaign is $40, which won’t be an issue in this plan); 20% on fashion/home. (For the sake of this plan, let’s assume that all of your sales of beauty, jewelry, and wellness items, which make up the vast majority of our product collection.)
  2. Once you reach $5000 in sales, you become a PREMIER achiever, and your earnings on beauty, jewelry, and wellness increase to 30%! BOOM, you’ve given yourself a raise!
  3. Once you reach $10,000 in sales, you become a PRESIDENT’S CLUB achiever, and your earnings on beauty, jewelry, and wellness increase to 40%! BOOM, you’ve given yourself another raise!
  4. Through Pathway to Premier, you’ll earn a $20 “Stepping Stone” bonus for every $200 increment of sales within a campaign (up to $500 total in Stepping Stone bonuses).
  5. Through Pathway to Premier, you’ll also earn a 10% “Milestone” bonus for every $1000 in cumulative sales within your first eight campaigns, maxing out at a bonus of $500 when you reach $5000 in cumulative sales within your 1st eight campaigns.

There you have it!! Earning nearly $5000 between now and August 4, along with an all-inclusive trip for one on Royal Caribbean’s Odyssey of the Seas, is as simple as selling $800 each campaign between C5 ’20 – C17 ’20.

Notice that I said SIMPLE, not EASY.

It will likely not be EASY to sell $800 each campaign, but it IS achievable with a solid plan, efficient use of available resources, a hefty dose of determination, unwavering perseverance, and an unstoppable “can-do” attitude!

Check out these TIPS for making it happen:

Jump in with both feet right NOW. Don’t delay in getting started. The fewer campaigns you give yourself, the more you’ll need to sell each campaign to hit $10,000 by C17.

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 “Destination Avon” incentive. Track your progress regularly and adjust your plan as needed.

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. Reaching sales of $800 each campaign will take a bit of effort, creativity, and ingenuity! Be brave! You’ll be thankful you were when you’re relaxing with your feet up, tropical cocktail in hand, on that cruise ship!

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.

Utilize every available resource at your disposal. You’re going to need it all to hit that sales goal! Use your online store, digital brochure, printed brochures, samples, social media, Facebook posts, emails, texting, vendor events, online parties, fundraisers, friend referrals, specials offers, etc. Use it all to hit that goal!!

Take advantage of all training opportunities! Avon offers us a tremendous amount of training and support. Participate in as many opportunities as you can. The more familiar you are with the products, resources, and sales strategies, the more successful you will be at selling! You can find a summary of each week’s training opportunities in the BEAUTY BUZZ section, on the homepage of avonnow.com. Also, check out the AVON U training section of avonnow.com for other valuable resources!

Be determined and don’t let anything stop you!! Start off slower or later than you’d hoped? That’s ok! Keep pushing forward! Look for ways to accelerate your progress! This is worth it and YOU ARE CAPABLE of achieving it!

 

 

What I DIDN’T Know About Becoming an Avon Rep

In May of 2013, I was taking a walk around my neighborhood with my three little boys. My youngest (2-years-old at the time) was in a stroller and my older two sons (4 and 6-years-old) walked beside me.

As we enjoyed the lovely spring afternoon, a memory popped into my head; one of the very few memories I have of my mother before she passed away from breast cancer when I was four years old.

In the memory, my mother holds me in her arms as my younger sister rests beside us in a pretty yellow baby buggy. Across from us sit two older couples at a picnic table. We’re in their backyard. My mother’s arm is extended towards the table, offering one of the women her Avon order.

My mother, Suzan, with my sisters and I, shortly before she passed away. (I’m the one in the middle, sucking on my blanket.)

It was in that moment, as I reflected on the happy memory of my mother delivering an Avon order with her young children in tow, that I decided to become an Avon representative.

I was an Avon rep by the time my husband got home from work that day.

WHAT I KNEW ABOUT AVON WHEN I SIGNED UP…

  • I knew Avon had been around for a very long time (133 years to date).
  • I knew Avon offered a wide selection of great products.
  • I knew that it was very inexpensive to sign up – $10 at the time (It’ll be FREE for a limited time, beginning 2/5/20).
  • I knew it was flexible, that there were no order quotas, and that I didn’t have to keep an inventory.
  • I knew that I didn’t need to host parties (which relieved me as a busy mom of young children).
  • I knew that there would be samples and brochures to pass out to customers.
  • I knew that I could likely make a little extra money and at the very least get a discount on my own purchases.

The things I knew gave me the comfort I needed to take a $10 risk on signing up. What I realize now, about 6.5 years later, is that there were so many things I didn’t know about becoming an Avon representative.

WHAT I DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT BECOMING AN AVON REP…

I didn’t know that Avon would lead me to some of the dearest and most special friendships I have ever experienced.

I didn’t know that my Avon business would provide me with the sense of personal accomplishment, pride, and recognition that I was missing as a stay-at-home mom.

I didn’t know that in addition to the printed brochures, I’d have my own online store and a wide variety of digital tools, which would allow me to easily sell from home, whenever it fit into my busy days with the kids.

I didn’t know that Avon could become my full-time job, with an income to match. At best, I’d expected a little extra spending money. I never imagined that it could make a substantial contribution to my family’s income, while still allowing me to stay home with our kids.

I didn’t know that I could earn all-inclusive vacations, just by doing the things I was already doing to build a stronger business. To date, I’ve enjoyed vacations to Playa del Carmen and Los Cabos, Mexico , Bahamas (Atlantis), Maui, Disney World, and a cruise to Bermuda. Jamaica is up next! I’ve been able to share many of these incredible experiences with my husband, sister, and sons.

I didn’t know that I’d also get to visit other fun cites for Avon’s annual conventions and leadership conferences, including Orlando, Nashville, San Antonio, Chicago, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Columbus, and Scottsdale.

I didn’t know that I’d earn other fun rewards, like an HDTV, Apple TV, family games, a KitchenAid mixer, beautiful jewelry, cash bonuses, a diamond necklace, and more!

I didn’t know about the other incredible opportunities Avon would offer me, like the time I got to meet Barbara Corcoran (from Shark Tank) or  when I was asked to represent Avon on the Today show, to present Avon’s donation (over $450,000 worth of toys) to their annual toy drive.

I didn’t know that I would have the opportunity to represent the voice of my fellow representatives as a member of advisory councils, as a speaker during national conferences, and on a variety of panels.

I didn’t know that my mentor, my team members, and my customers would become such important parts of my life, fulfilling that basic human desire to feel valued and connected.

I didn’t know that I’d be able to raise money (with the help of my sons) for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (a cause which is near and dear to my heart) as part of Team Avon.

I didn’t know that I’d be able to offer Avon fundraisers, to help other individuals, teams, and organizations raise money for their valued causes.

I didn’t know that Avon would become such an important part of my boys’ lives and that they’d become the best business partners ever!

Had I known all of those things about Avon, I would have signed up a long time ago!
