How to Convert Alma Leads

I seem to have a lot of success with my approach to my Alma leads as do others who use them. I thought I would share my “technique” with you. You need to take the Alma course at Avon University, do this now, do not wait! This is long but a good read! Remember, you can use ALMA for your own personal leads as well, just manually enter them.

Important Tips;

  • First and foremost, I contact my leads as soon as possible; within minutes if I can but definitely within 12 hours. I will use all three means of contact right away; Call, Text and email. If it happens to be late at night I will at least get an email sent off to them.
  • Second, I purchase premium leads. I know, they cost $10 a piece. Let me tell you they are worth it.
  • Third, use 3-4 means of communication. The 4 types are; Phone, Text, Email and Regular Mail. I do not use regular mail but it is an option. There are recruiting postcards you can purchase from Vista Print, Town & Country or you can make your own.
  • Fourth, In all of my emails I include the following attachments; Starter Appointment Kits Flyer, Daily Care Collection Flyer, New KickStart Flyer. This will include the “Welcome” email.

What I do;

Many reps will print their leads and keep track of them this way. I exlusively use Alma; it works for me. Find what works for you but remember, you must keep Alma updated or your share leads may be revoked if they expire because you did not update them.

  • When I receive a lead, I first call them.  The majority of leads do not answer the phone since they don’t recognize the number.  This is ok; leave a message.  My messages are brief and always the same on the first call. “Hi (Mary), this is Shirl.  I am a National Sales Leader with Avon and I understand you are interested in joining Avon. My number is XXX-XXX-XXXX. You can call or text me anytime if you have any questions.  I am going to send you a follow up text with the link to join and an email with additional information. I look forward to hearing from you, have a great day/evening”.

  • I then immediately send a follow up text. It will read; “Hi (Mary)!! This is Shirl from Avon. Let’s get you signed up today! I can’t wait to see where this amazing opportunity takes you. Whatever your “why” is; a little extra money in your pocket, personal discount on items you use every day or a full time business, Avon is the right choice for you! It only costs $25 and includes everything you need to get started including a free website. Follow this link to sign up and watch Avon enrich your life. http://spapaian.avonrepresentative.com/opportunity/start.  Use reference code SPAPAIAN.  Check your email for additional info.”

Once these three tasks are completed, I document in my Alma.  I schedule the next follow up in 3-5 days. When it is time to follow up I repeat all three forms of communication but in a 3 day period.

  • Day 1 I call. I will leave a message stating, “Hi (Mary), this is Shirl with Avon.  I just wanted to follow up with you. My number is XXX-XXX-XXXX. You can call or text me anytime.  I look forward to hearing from you, have a great day/evening.”

Again, each time I attempt a contact I document my Alma. At this point if I don’t hear back I will schedule a follow up two weeks out and repeat all three forms of communication. If nothing again, I will push it out a month and so on.

Now, if you DO hear back, just have a conversation with the lead. Ask if they have any questions. Be sure to document it in Alma as well.

Once a Lead signs up and becomes a New Recruit

Once I have converted the lead I will follow up with a “Welcome” email.

PLACING YOUR ORDERS:

Orders are placed every two weeks and need to be placed by 11:59 PM on your order day (it is okay to place the order the night before).

Your order day depends on your Representative Processing Schedule (RPS).

You can find your RPS or Ordering Schedule under youravon.com>campaign tools>2015 Campaign Selling Calendars.

Your mail plan is: RPS 1, I have attached your schedule.

KEEP YOUR STORE OPEN AT ALL TIMES WITH YOUR BROCHURES!! 

*To invest in your business, you will need to purchase your most important  business tool every campaign-Your brochures! After all this is YOUR STORE! Keep in mind you are ordering brochures for 2 campaigns ahead of the one you started in. 

BROCHURES ARE ORDERED IN PACKS OF 10, NOT INDIVIDUALLY

The more packs  you order, the cheaper they are!!           

*Shipping charges are based on your order size and whether your order was placed on time ($6-$13).

*Your delivery day will be consistent, unless a holiday falls within a campaign, in which case your order may be delayed 1 business day.

*In any campaign, you can order from the current brochure as well as the 2 previous brochures. 

*In any campaign, you can order from the next 2 campaign’s What’s New.  However, once that campaign begins, you must order your products from the brochure. (eg. If we are in C15, you may order from the What’s New 16 and the What’s New 17). Samples are available for purchase in the back of the What’s New. As a new Representative, you may purchase 1 of each product from the What’s New unless specified. When there are 2 prices listed in the What’s New, you pay the “R” price.  Once you reach President’s Club (award sales reach $10,000), your cost will then be the “PRP” price and you will be able to order up to 3 of each products. 

You should also purchase some bags for packaging and delivering your Avon products to your customers.

Bags range in size and price and are available both in paper and plastic.

You can find them under Sales Tools from your online order form.

Clear Literature bags (to hang brochures) 50pk/$.80 (058-443)

For Products:

  • Small Popcorn Bags (for lipsticks, eyeliners, etc.) 50pk/$.95 #907-090
  • Medium Popcorn Bags  50pk/$1.15 #432-816
  • Large Popcorn Bags (perfect starter bags) 50pk/$1.25 #907-119
  • Extra Large Popcorn Bags (deep for larger orders) 50pk/$2.00 #432-820

Paper Shopping Bags are much nicer bags with nylon handles for carrying. I use them for high dollar orders like clothes, shoes, Anew Skin Care, gift bags, jewelry. They come in:

  • Small (10pk/$2.00) #907-051
  • Medium (10pk/$2.25) #907-066
  • Large (10pk/$2.55) #907-070
  • Extra Large (10pk/$2.95) #907-085

If you are using the handwritten order books, you may want to order those too.  They are free item #309-920.

I will be sending you additional information and you will probably receive an email from Team Momentum Leader Emily Seagren.  She is a wealth of information! Be sure to connect with me on Facebook;

How to Convert Alma Leads

My Avon Story

I am born and raised in Southern California. I grew up in Anaheim, CA, spent 13 years in the mountains of Idyllwild and then eventually moved to the Hemet/San Jacinto Valley where I now reside. I began working at the age 0f 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.

I decided to become an Avon Representative in 2014.  My daughter had signed up and my sister-in-law as well. My sister-in-law joined for the discount on her own purchases and my daughter gave it up after a while; she found she didn’t have the time she wanted to devote to it while raising two toddlers.

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 daughter’s upline and mutual friend, Leslie Reid, 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. As I started selling, I realized that I was actually having fun and felt accomplished at how well I was doing. 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 almost doubled and I am now a Gold Ambassador; Team Shine is thriving!

My goals for 2017 are to earn the title of “Gold Leader” and “Honor Society” again in 2017. My long term goal is to retire and Avon continue to be my major source of income. I hope to accomplish this in the next 5 years.
