My Avon Store To Do list
Think carefully about your user name. You can NOT change it once you have chosen it, so make sure it's easy to spell, relevant to you and something unique Try to stay away from what everyone is using, like gailsbeuaty, or gailsmakeupshop.... try to be more creative and put your own personality into your user name. Failing that simply use your full name as this will be easy for others to find.
Always make sure your image is of YOU and not your favourite pet or flower! Although they maybe sweet and cute they are not very professional and will NOT represent you as a serious and reliable Avon representative.
Make sure you can use the same username in your social media platforms. Open up a new Avon Store Twitter account with the same user name. Create a new Face Book page or group with the same user name too. This will help people find you easily and you can promote yourself a lot faster using the same name. Branding yourself is very important so think carefully before you open your store.
Now you're up and running it's time to start promoting and sharing your Online Store. Let's start with Face Book, this is one of the largest social media platforms in the world with over a Billion users! You can read our blog on how to open your Facebook profile, pages and groups and even venture into opening an eBay store too.
Whatever you decide to do, just know that taking ACTION is the key to your success online with your Avon store.
Join Buying and selling groups on Facebook and share your online store with as many people as you can think of. Send out emails to your friends and family with your online store link, and create a mailing list for all your regular customers too. Sending regular Avon customers your link to your store will create impulse buying too, and it's a great reminder of the little things they may have missed since they last saw a brochure.
Have your customers select Courier Delivery. That way Avon will take their payment, Avon will deliver their order and you get paid commission into your Avon account. You have then earn't money by sharing your store but not doing the physical delivering. This way means you can share you link more widely, even to friends and family that live the other end of the country. So long as the customer does live in England & Northern Ireland Avon will deliver it and pay you. You can also set your shop up to offer only this delivery method, tick the box that says DIRECT DELIVERY ONLY.
If you offer both REP delivery and Direct delivery then you will need to look out for and deal with the REP deliveries - follow this BLOG that will show you the simple steps to accepting teh REP delivery customers.
