WHAT TO WEAR:

LIKE YOU ARE HAVING FUN, because this is fun!
WHEN A MOTORIST/PASSERBY STOPS BY:
-- To be fair to each other..rotate who gets the leads.

REPS should smile and wave, but ONLY ONE person go up to the car or wait on the person to walk up to the AVON vehicle.
They stop by because they are curious, looking for a specific AVON product or need an AVON representative.

Grab & Go
I found a great way to store and transport my samples. The fishing tackle department at your local Wal-Mart
has some beautiful holders for fishing lures. The ones I found have a pretty blue case with a see through lid on both sides,
and a carry handle. I have one set up with all of my skin care samples (in the original avon boxes, arranged in alpha order)
on one side and my foundation color samples on the other. I can read the box tops right through the lid! It is so easy to
grab and go! One of my downline found a clear ammunition carrier for her lipstick bullets in the hunting department!
Purchase extra brochures or ask your manager...target an area...toss them out. Sherry Horn successfully
does this on a regular basis and recommends this to everyone!
Recruit & Customer Search
Places to search for new customers and recruits:
*Be sure to have lots
of brochures old or new with you, a business card and maybe some samples to hand out and recruiting fliers and WEAR YOUR AVON
NAME BADGE: craft fairs, flea markets, shopping malls or their parking lots, grocery stores or their parking lots, parties
for direct sale products (Tupperware, Partylite, House of Lloyd,etc), playrounds, kids parties, online chats, schools (after
school when mom's are picking up their kids), pizza parlors, OR JUST anywhere! Just do it.
* Ask for a phone # to "follow
up" and ask if they would like to be added to your mailing list to receive a brochure regularly; that way you'll get an address
* If you do this at one location for 1/2 to 1 hr 2 or 3 times a week, you will most definately increase your customer
base and/or downline.
Mark your calendars..and make a commitment to do it!
