Finally! Avon Tips and Tricks to Sell Online
Here’s goes, Avon representatives, my attempt at giving my Avon selling secrets ideas. However, since I do so much to market Avon online it’s hard for me to tell which of my efforts actually get me the customers. I started back in 2010 with consistent hard work. Many hours of trying different things to attract customers. Today there are many reps that have really excelled in selling online with their own creative ideas and talents. Please don’t expect to instantly start getting sales, as it takes a long time, work, and dedication.
#1 Avon Online Selling Tip
The first place to start when selling Avon online is to set up your social media profiles. If you don’t know how to do this, do a Google search. You can find posts, images, and videos on almost anything you need on the internet. I would suggest you be consistent in your name or handle on all accounts. I didn’t do that but I wish I would have. Read Avon’s policies in choosing your name. Make sure you write a bio on each profile. Include your picture for a personal touch. The same color scheme would be great also. The social media that I use and suggest are:
My BEST tip for marketing Avon on social media is to start with one platform. Research on how to successfully use it. Youtube is an amazing resource for educating yourself on almost anything. Do a Google search to find the top ways to promote products on each social media account. Research how to use hashtags properly for each platform. Every social account has different hashtags. Once you have mastered one platform, add another to your marketing routine. I would suggest that we follow each other on our social media accounts. My links will be at the bottom of this post. Post your links in the comments so we can all build our followers.
#2 Avon Online Selling Tip
Set up your profile on youravon.com by going to My Office – Web Office – Online Store – Personalization Tool. Make sure to include your phone number and/or address on the Personal Web Page, Find a Rep Tool Online, and Find a Rep Tool Phone. Also, fill out your Interests and Why I love selling Avon section. When customers are looking for a rep, a list of representatives will come up. By having your city, phone number, Interests, and Why I love Selling Avon filled out, customers will more likely call you than another.
#3 Avon Online Selling Tip
My suggestion is to put a personal picture of yourself on your eStore. Go to My Office – Web Office – Online Store – Edit your Online Store. Write a personal message telling people about you and why they should shop from you. By doing both of these your online customers will feel like they know you personally. This is also the place to add your social account links. This is very important as you want people to follow you on social media. I also chose to display my phone number and city and state.
#4 Avon Online Selling Tip
Get on the first page of Google when people are looking for a local Avon Rep. Do an online search for Avon rep Loveland, Colorado
. You should see my Google Business Page listing with my picture on the right side of the screen. Start your Avon Google Business page
to get found online by people in your area.
#5 Avon Online Selling Tip
Put labels on your brochures with your eStore web address and the current Avon coupon. Don’t forget to include your Avon eStore address on your business cards. Hand these out to everyone you see and hang them on business bulletin boards.
#6 Avon Online Selling Tip
Share the Avon Social posts and videos on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Google Plus. Don’t post them all at once. Try to post them several times a day. You can also go to your Avon eStore and share the individual products by clicking on the icons below each image. Be creative with your descriptions and show excitement. People are looking for answers to their problems. Evoke curiosity and try to solve their problems.
#7 Avon Online Selling Tip
Many of you have been asking about the eBook that I used back in 2010. The name of it is Internet Marketing For Avon Representatives
. It can be purchased on Amazon for $.99 for a Kindle. The great tip from this book was the special code that you could add to your blog. However, that code is no longer needed since all product URLs now contain your specific store information. Some information in this book is outdated but it still has some very good information in it. The author is a top Avon online seller today. She and her husband helped me get started with lots of tips on how to market Avon online.
#8 Avon Online Selling Tip
Starting an Avon blog is a great Avon selling secret
. However, I must warn you that it takes a lot of hard consistent work. I have done tons of online research on this topic to get where I am. As a matter of fact, I still research because Google algorithms change quite often. I have two Avon blogs, Beauty with Mary
and Think Beauty Today
. The first one is hosted by Blogger
. It’s easy and free. The second one is from WordPress.com.
I don’t advise you to use the free wordpress.com version. The best version is wordpress.org where you pay for a hosting provider and manage your plugins and software updates. You can do an online search on how to set up a blog on either of these platforms. The ebook mentioned in #7 also gives help on setting up an Avon Blogger blog.WpBegginer has a great post on How to Start a WordPress Blog the Right Way in 7 easy steps
. It is time-consuming and does cost money but it is worth it.
#9 Avon Online Selling Tip
Here is a tip that you may already know about. Avon President’s Council Member and Silver Ambassador, Dianne Hernandez, was asked by Avon to give a webinar on her suggestions for selling Avon online. She earned this top sales level by selling only online. If you haven’t listened to this webinar, it is awesome. She truly is an amazing online marketer.
The public Facebook Group, Online Beauty Bosses has marketing tips that are public to anyone on Facebook. Like and follow this page to get notifications on your Facebook personal page.
Here’s my last tip for you. YouTube is very popular. If you are a good speaker, I would highly suggest you make youtube videos. You can do makeup tutorials, product reviews, or your personal review on being an Avon Representative. Always leave your eStore link in the description.
If you aren’t already an Avon representative, I would love to have you join my team. I will then give you additional marketing tips to get your online sales a boost. I would love to have you join me at the next recognition celebration and celebrate your success.
