Benefits of participating in Avon Fundraising

(All of this info is available at youravon.com under the “Earning Opportunities” tab)

Increase Your Earnings Immediately

A small group with only 20 participants selling $15 worth of products to just 10 Customers each gives you a $3,000 order—entitling you to 50% earnings in that campaign. You decide what percentage of the $1,500 will go to the Fundraising organization. The rest is your profit!

Reach More Potential Customers

Fundraising means networking with a variety of people. Everyone you contact is a potential Customer, a source of referrals or a prospective recruit.

Fast Track to President’s Club and Above

Every Fundraising order counts toward your Award Sales and Earnings Level. Fundraising sales can boost you to President’s Club or a higher level of sales achievement and help you to earn Points that can be redeemed for over 3000 rewards.

“How to” Fundraise

Step 1: Finding an Organization

The initial step for your Avon Fundraising endeavors is to find an organization to work with.

As an Avon Representative, you started selling to people you know. Selling Avon Fundraisers works the same way.

SPREAD THE WORD

Make a list of the organizations with which you are personally involved: your church, your children’s schools and sports teams, for example. Contact the person in charge and always mention that you and your family are members of the organization. Use our flyer inserts in every brochure you distribute or post our bulletin board flyers at schools, community centers, supermarkets, and other places in your neighborhood.

Once you’ve spread the word…

Avon Fundraising

MAKE THE RIGHT CONNECTIONS

Many organizations have a fundraising committee or chairperson, who makes final decisions on which fundraiser to use. Use the suggested phone scrip to help you identify the correct person. Always have your contact worksheet ready to write down additional information gathered from your first call. Before you contact the chairperson, make sure to decide what percentage of profits the organization will receive. Use the Organization Earnings Opportunity Chart and ask your District Sales Manager or Upline Representative for guidance. Once you have the name of the person in charge of fundraising, you can either phone that person directly, send a brief e-mail, or mail a letter and flyer. Don’t forget to follow-up! Use our introductory letters to craft a personalized message to your contact.

GREATER EARNINGS FOR YOUR ORGANIZATION

With typical fundraisers, most people will buy only one candy bar or T-shirt. Avon offers a variety of products for everyone.

CUTTING-EDGE PRODUCTS

Avon’s reputation for top-quality products opens doors and makes selling simple. Select from assorted personal care, makeup, and fragrance items.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROGRAMS

Avon’s Community Outreach Program makes it simple for you to approach organizations that have toy drives during the year. Someone who donates through a Community Outreach Program is donating a “gift in kind,” which means they are donating the actual item needed by the organization, rather than money. Customers pay for an Avon product specifically chosen for the Outreach Program to be donated through the charitable organization. This item is often a plush toy.

MAKE IT OFFICIAL

Before reaching out to customers, ask for a letter from the organization that states you are working on behalf of the charitable organization to put the chosen product in the hands of the organization’s recipients this season.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH PARTICIPANTS

Visit children’s hospitals, police stations, fire departments, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, local Y’s, beauty salons, drycleaners, local restaurants, municipal buildings, college sororities and fraternities, etc. Don’t forget to bring your Avon product with you to show off!

SUB SECTIONS:

Visit children’s hospitals, police stations, fire departments, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, local Y’s, beauty salons, drycleaners, local restaurants, municipal buildings, college sororities and fraternities, etc. Don’t forget to bring your Avon product with you to show off!

Step 2: Choose your Program and Flyers

See what types of programs and Fundraising opportunities are best for you.

1.1 Determine the Organization’s Needs

The more you know about the organization in advance, the more effective your presentation will be.

Topics to Cover:

EARNINGS POTENTIAL

The organization’s earnings should be determined by actual sales. If a group sells $1,500, suggested earnings could be 40%. On sales of less than $1,500, suggested earnings could be 30%. Use the Organization Earnings Opportunity Charts to illustrate the potential profit for the organization.

ADDRESS ALL COSTS

Some Representatives prefer to take a higher percentage of the profits and pay for fundraising materials themselves. Others prefer to take a lower percentage and have the organization pay for the participants’ materials and delivery bags. If the organization is exempt from sales tax, Avon will need a copy of the Sales Tax Exempt Certificate. If not, fundraising participants must collect the appropriate sales tax.

AVON FUNDRAISING TYPE

Work with the organization to determine which Avon Fundraising vehicle works best for its needs-a single page product flyer or a Community Outreach program? Show an example of each, plus an order form and collection envelope with instructions.

TIMING & ORGANIZATION PARTICIPATION

Other things to determine with the organization include:

  1. Fundraiser start dates (include the kick-off/launch meeting).
  2. Fundraiser coordinators (you’ll need approximately one coordinator for every 20 to 30 participants).
  3. Fundraiser duration.
  4. Order due dates.
  5. Expected delivery dates and payment to you.
  6. Who will help package the orders.

PRIZE PROGRAMS

Some vendors, especially those that target schools, have prize programs built into their fundraisers. These may look attractive, but the prizes are NOT free. The cost of prizes is built into the cost of the products. Avon FundRaising programs do not have an automatic prize program.You offer great products at fabulous prices. If an organization feels that a prize program is necessary, you have two options:

  • AVON PRIZES: Look in the brochure or other communications pieces like the Avon Outlet for sale items to use as low-cost prizes. You can sell them to the organization at your cost, or at a small mark up. Also, when you take advantage of instant delivery and stock-up programs, you can use free products and incentive cash to pay for the cost of the prizes.
  • LOCAL DONATIONS: The organization can develop its own tiered prize program. For example, the top two or three sellers receive the top prize (such as video games, bikes, digital cameras). The top team (the class/grade with the highest sales) receives a group prize such as a pizza party. Pizza and refreshments can be donated locally. IMPORTANT: With prize programs, always remember to negotiate the cost of the prizes up front and deduct their cost from the organization’s earnings.

1.2 The Presentation

A personal presentation may seem challenging, but it is a way to introduce yourself and Avon. Everything you need to create a professional presentation is included on the Resources page – forms, earnings charts, and even suggested scripts.

AT THE PRESENTATION

Begin by introducing yourself and give a brief description of the Avon Fundraiser. Then discuss the following points:

Recommend the type of fundraiser for the organization based on your initial discussions – Single-page product flyer or a Community Outreach program.

Agree on an earnings level for the organization. Most fundraising companies offer 30% to 40%. Discuss a scale (based on total sales volume) or a flat percentage. Show the Organization Earnings Opportunity Charts If the organization requires more than your current earnings level, suggest establishing a scale. For the organization to get 40%, it must sell at least $1,500; for 45%, it must sell $2,000.

OTHER THINGS TO CONSIDER DURING THE PRESENTATION:

Who will purchase the fundraising materials? If the organization must have 40% to 45% earnings, it should purchase the collateral material. Otherwise, the cost will come out of your earnings.

Who will help with order and product sorting? If the organization provides substantial support, you might consider giving a larger percentage. If you’re not going to get enough help, you may want to take a higher percentage to compensate for your time.

Does the organization want a prize program? If so, be ready with suggestions.

AFTER YOU’VE BOOKED AN AVON FUNDRAISER

Complete the Fundraiser Agreement Form and have it signed. This is your Agreement Form; use it as your guide. Keep in Mind- Bagging fundraiser orders is just like bagging your regular Avon orders-only a lot bigger! Determine in advance who will pay for the bags. Include this information in the Additional Agreements section of the Fundraiser Agreement Form and have it signed. This is your Agreement Form; use it as your guide. This is also a great opportunity to find new customers. Drop a brochure and your contact information in with the fundraising orders! Fill out the Contact Timeline at the same time as you fill out the Fundraiser Agreement Form. Make copies of both for you and the organization.

Order the appropriate number of flyers.

Step 3: Register your Fundraiser

Always register your Fundraiser to ensure you receive all the benefits of Avon Fundraising!

Step 4: Managing Avon Fundraising

When you receive the participants’ materials, schedule a launch meeting one week before the start of selling to walk-through the Fundraiser process.

LAUNCH MEETING OBJECTIVES:

  • Introduce Avon Fundraising to the coordinators.
  • Discuss why the organization is selling Avon products.
  • Review the schedule.
  • Assign responsibilities.
  • Answer questions.

COORDINATORS’ DUTIES:

  • Distribute participants’ materials.
  • Collect orders and payments from participants.
  • Check orders for accurate totals and enclosed payments.
  • Turn all money over to the fundraiser chairperson.
  • Deliver orders to you (where and when).
  • Help pack orders.
  • Make sure participants pick up their orders.

ALWAYS MAKE SURE THAT:

  • Participants’ materials are distributed.
  • Everyone is clear about their duties and has your phone number in case they need to contact you.
  • Everyone is clear about the important dates:
    • When orders are due to you.
    • When products will be delivered to the organization.
    • When participants can pick up orders.
    • When your payment is due.

3 STEPS TO SUCCESS:

  1. You provide each participant with a flyer from which they will take orders. Participants also get a Customer order form and a collection envelope.
  2. Each participant returns the order form and payment in the collection envelope to a contact person in charge at the organization.
  3. You collect the orders and submit them to Avon for processing via your normal ordering process.

GATHER ORDERS & COLLECT MONEY

Determine your order total in advance and advise the organization of how much you are owed so that a check will be ready when you deliver the products. Remember, they have the money-no check means no products.

After the fundraiser, meet with the fundraiser coordinators to collect the orders. Refer to your list of coordinators to make sure that everyone has turned in their group’s orders; call anyone whose order is missing. Coordinators should turn all money over to the fundraiser chairperson. Confirm that coordinators have collected the correct amount to cover order cost.

Deliver the Orders

TIPS TO STREAMLINE THE PROCESS:

  • Coordinators should make copies of each participant’s order to keep track of how much money is due.
  • Packers should double check to see that each bag’s contents correspond with the order form. Then, write each Customer’s name on the outside of the bag. Add one of your thank-you notes.
  • When all orders are filled, list any shorts or discrepancies. In each of these orders, you should include a personal note of explanation.
  • Decide how you are going to handle late orders, and if you will continue to give the organization a percentage of sales of any reorders. Offering 10% to 25% of the reorders will help them remember your support throughout the year.
  • Coordinators should set up a time for participants to pick up their orders.

Follow-up

THE ORGANIZATION

Organizations hold fundraisers regularly, so keep in touch. Find out when the next fundraiser is being planned and express your eagerness to work with them again. Ask your contact for any suggestions to make the next fundraiser even more successful. Within a week, send the chairperson a gift and/or personal note of thanks for the chance to work with the organization. Say that you look forward to working with her/him again. And remember to summarize the results of your Avon Fundraiser. (Keep a record of each fundraiser and its results, and use it to activate interest with new organizations and to encourage repeat fundraisers.)

NEW CUSTOMERS

Include thank-you notes with orders to give new customers a way to reach you. Include samples with their brochures; then call to ask how they liked the samples and to get their orders. Offer to drop off a current brochure to everyone who doesn’t already have an Avon Representative. You also have the list of coordinators’ names and numbers. They, too, may want to reorder products from you if they don’t have an Avon Representative.

Avon Fundraising

POTENTIAL RECRUITS

Use the same list to contact the coordinators and ask if they’re interested in becoming Avon Representatives. If the organization had people over the age of 18 selling, contact the participants to let them know that they can earn money for themselves by selling Avon. Be sure to get the organization’s permission before using any list.

    About Me

    I was born and raised in Southern California. I grew up in Anaheim, CA, spent 13 years in mountains of Idyllwild and then eventually moved to the Hemet/San Jacinto Valley where I now reside. I began working at the age of 15 but I have actually only had a handful of jobs in my lifetime; Fast food manager, extruder operator, restaurant owner, fire fighter and now district manager for a private fire prevention company and media/ marketing for an off road racing company.  I also own a home based computer service/repair company and an off road media/marketing company. I hold an AS degree in Fire Science from Mt San Jacinto College where I graduated with honors of distinction.

    How I became an Avon Representative

    I decided to become an Avon Representative in 2014.  My sister-in-law was a representative but only for her own discount. My daughter had sold for a short time but it just wasn’t her thing.

    I had always thought about becoming an Avon Rep, but it was always just a thought. I remember my mom buying Avon when I was very young and was always mesmerized at all the products and how the Avon lady always looked so beautiful and polished. Of course I loved the lipstick bullets!

    My friend Leslie who was a representative as well was always sharing Avon deals and the opportunity on Facebook. One day she posted about joining her team and becoming an Avon Rep; I just decided right then and there to do it. I had no plan or specific reason. Remember, I was already working a full time job on top of my own businesses. As I started selling, I realized that I was actually having fun and felt accomplished at how well I was doing; I was only doing Avon part time in the evenings and weekends. I decided I wanted to get serious and actually be successful!

    For the remainder of that first year I concentrated on learning as much as I could about the business; learning most everything on my own. Then in 2015 I devoted every extra dollar and minute I had to my Avon Business. I grew my customer base slowly but surely and over time my customer base and sales consistently increased. I even started my leadership journey at the encouragement of Emily Seagren who was Leslie’s upline.

    I studied and learned everything I could from Emily and through her’s and Leslie’s mentorship I am where I am today. In January of 2017 the opportunity to purchase Leslie’s Avon team was presented to me. Not one to pass up a great offer I took it! Emily Seagren is now my upline, my team has more than tripled and I am now a Silver Leader!
