First of all, order brochures each and every campaign.  These are your “store”.  You can’t grow your Avon business without them! Be sure you place a label or stamp on the brochure with your name, phone number and web address.

What Do I Do With My Avon Brochures?

Add your eStore address and that you are an Avon Independent Sales Rep in your email signature.

The Power of Three; Offer 3 people every day an Avon brochure. This could be a sales clerk, someone in line behind or in front of you, someone you pass after parking your car, anyone you come in contact with.  Carry brochures with you always. Ask these people for their contact info so you can follow up with them. This is one of the best ways to grow your Avon business. Be sure to follow up!

FOLLOW UP!  Always follow up with people you hand your brochure to.  Always follow up with current customers each campaign.  I contact my current customers a few days before my order is due to alert them when my order goes in and to check if they need to order anything. You have to follow up to grow your Avon business!

Leave a brochure or business card EVERYWHERE you go!  The doctor’s office, dentist office, restaurant, gas station, ATM, bank, grocery store, gym, public restrooms. You get the picture! Here is another post with ideas of where to leave brochures.

Get an Avon vinyl decal on the back window of your car. Free advertising everywhere you go. I bought mine from  I love it! I have had people follow me to ask me for a brochure.

Everywhere you go potential customers will see you!

Place a hook on the back window or side window of your car and hang brochures in the clear literature bags (sales tools item #058433) on the hook so that people can grab one when passing your car.  I have a 3M hook on my back window and everywhere I go I hang at least 5 brochure packs on it.  Someone always grabs one and I get orders this way.

Let potential customers grab a brochure while you are parked!

Post a sign or brochure holder in your front yard.  My husband made me one and it works!  I live by a school so I have great car and foot traffic in front of my house.

Great for high traffic areas!

Ask your local businesses if you can leave brochures/business cards at their establishment.  My favorite Mexican restaurant has a bookcase when you walk in and they allow me to leave two stacks of brochures on it.  So many people take them that I have to restock every few days.  I get new customers all the time saying they found my brochure there.

Tailgate in a parking lot such as the dollar store, Walmart, your local park or at a parade.

Grow your Avon Business

On the spot sales and future customers!

“Toss” older brochures.  Never throw old brochures away.  Place them in the clear plastic literature bags (sales tools item #058433) and toss them in driveways, hang on doors or leave at businesses. There is a lot of dispute over whether tossing brochures works, it has worked for me!  I get about a third of my customers this way.  I believe this is another great way to grow your Avon business.

Put together sample packs.  Use the smaller snack size baggies.  Put a business card and a few samples in each bag and hand them out to people you come in contact with.  Be sure to get their contact info so you can follow up with them.

Join social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumbler, Google+ etc. Advertise your Avon business there.

Start a blog geared around your Avon business to expand your social media presence.

Create a Facebook page for your Avon business and post ads there such as free shipping offers, sales, new products. Be sure to invite all of your Facebook friends to “like” your page.

Join Facebook selling groups in your area and post your eStore address and info on a regular basis including any specials or sales going on.

Use the Social Media Center on to post to your social media sites.  These posts will direct customers to your eStore.

Join Avon related Facebook groups to learn more about selling Avon.  Some suggestions are “Onward No Matter What”, “Makeup Marketing Online”, “Avon Flyers by Alicia”, “Monday Morning Madness”, “Tuesdays with Theresa”, “Success with Scola” and “Believe and Achieve”.

Set up booths at vendor events in your area, especially during holidays.  You don’t need to have a large amount of product in stock.  Have brochures, business cards, samples, an order book.  Less expensive products to have on hand to sell would be hand creams, shower gels, lip balms, Foot Works, Bubble Bath.  Purchase items when on sale for this purpose.

Grow your Avon Business

Vendor events attract new customers, on the spot sales and new recruits!

Wear an Avon button or t-shirt to start a conversation. Again, be sure to always carry Avon brochures with you everywhere you go.

Host Avon parties for friends or family.

There are so many ways to grow your Avon business.  These are just a few of the things that work for me. You don’t have to do all of them at once and not everything works for all reps.  You need to find what works for you and always try new things.  If something isn’t working, try something else. Here is a flyer of 100 different ways to grow your Avon business!

    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 Gold Leader!
