6 Steps To Finding The Time To Grow Your Avon Business
Time management is key to success in any business, and your Avon business is no exception.
Finding time to grow your Avon business can be a challenge, but with the right strategies in place, you can achieve your goals while enjoying the things you love.
Growing Your Avon Business Is Pretty Simple
There are only 4 main steps:
- Prospecting for new customers & recruits.
- Getting a brochure (either paper or digital) to every customer every campaign.
- Following up with every customer you gave a brochure to every campaign before you place your order.
- Take the order, submit it to Avon and deliver to your customer, or send them to your Avon Online Store to place their order.
And then Rinse and Repeat.
It’s really that simple. You just do these 4 steps over and over again, and you will have a strong Avon business.
We have our Daily 8 System to help you work on the activities that will help you grow your business.
The Daily 8 System Is A Proven Formula
When followed consistently, the Daily 8 Plan will help you maintain the consistency required to build a thriving team and an exponentially expanding residual income.
Instead of working 8 hours a day, 40 hours a week, your goal is to capture 8 POINTS a day, 5 days a week for a total of 40 POINTS per week.
Follow this plan consistently for 90-days and teach your team to do the same. At the end of 90 days, REPEAT and then REPEAT again. This is your Daily Method of operation.
The real secret to your Avon Business success is that there is NO SECRET!
It simply takes a simple plan and the dedication and commitment to WORK THE PLAN consistently! That’s it!

Today We’ll Talk About 6 Steps To Finding The Time To Grow Your Avon Business
Sometimes things just get so busy between kids, dogs, life, and other small mini crisis’ that it’s easy to put the business on the back burner while we take care of “important stuff.”
If this sounds familiar, it’s not to pick on you, it’s to tell you that you’re not alone!
Truly, it wasn’t until I realized that in order for me to really grow a strong business and not continue to play around like it was a hobby, I was going to have to set myself up some real boundaries and processes.
I didn’t have a lot of time, because I was working 60-70 hours a week and commuting 3 hours a day to my job.
And so, if I wasn’t organized, I wouldn’t be able to grow my business in the limited time I had.
Once I regulated my time and implemented systems to help me, things got a lot easier.
Six Steps To Help You Maximize Your Time And Energy To Drive Your Avon Business Forward
1 – Prioritize Your Goals:
Start by setting clear, achievable goals.
Whether it’s increasing your sales or expanding your team, knowing your objectives will help you stay focused.
Prioritize your goals to understand what’s most important to you.
2 – Create a Weekly Schedule:
Plan your week and each campaign ahead of time.
Dedicate specific time blocks in your calendar to your Avon business activities.
Know the Avon Campaign Schedule and when your orders are due.
Prioritize your Income Producing Activities first!
This could include prospecting for new recruits and customers, and following up with everyone you meet.
Implement our simple system to Automate Your Follow-Ups to maintain your current business while continuing to work on growing your business.
Be sure to schedule product training and team meetings into your schedule as well.
Allocate time for personal activities, like spending time with friends, enjoying coffee, and traveling, to maintain a balanced life.
3 – Delegate and Outsource:
Don’t hesitate to delegate tasks that can be handled by others.
If you have team members, empower them to take on certain responsibilities.
You could also consider outsourcing tasks like administrative work or social media management to free up more of your time.
4 – Embrace Technology:
Leverage technology to streamline your business operations.
Use Avon’s digital tools for easy order processing and tracking.
Automate routine tasks whenever possible to save time.
Tools such as our System to Automate your Follow-Ups can help you make sure every customer has a brochure and a follow-up each campaign.
Social media platforms can help you connect with customers and prospects.
Our Social Media Calendars can help you plan out your social media posts a month a t a time.
Block out time in your calendar to schedule out all your posts for the month, or even the upcoming week.
Tools such as CinchShare can make all the difference in saving you time and helping you be more efficient in scheduling your social media posts.
Schedule your posts in advance using time blocks in your calendar to enable you to be more efficient. Use a tool such as CinchShare to make it super easy to schedule posts.
5 – Continuous Learning:
Invest time in continuous learning.
Stay updated on Avon’s product offerings, industry trends, and sales strategies.
Take advantage of Avon’s A-List training, Campaign Priorities training (Avon U & YouTube), LIVE Shopping events, and any other training to become more knowledgeable.
Watch the Marketing Calendar on Avon.com so you don’t miss any important trainings. Register for any training you can, and watch the replays when you are less busy.
This will make your time more productive and your guidance more valuable to your team.
6 – Time for Self-Care:
Taking care of yourself is essential.
Dedicate time to personal growth activities, such as reading, meditation, or attending self-help seminars.
A well-balanced and fulfilled Lynn will have more to offer your team.
Let Go Of That Employee Mentality
One of the biggest challenges new Representatives face when trying to grow their business is getting out of the employee mentality.
Business is intentional, and if you aren’t intentional with your time, there’s no one else to keep you on task.
There’s no boss to train you, no one else to blame.
Once you make that mindset shift to one of a Business Owner, everything will change!
Time Management Is Key
Finding the time to grow your Avon business is all about effective time management, setting priorities, and taking care of yourself.
By following these six steps and maintaining a balanced approach to life, you can achieve success in your Avon business while enjoying your favorite activities.
You are not going to be perfect!
With everything going on in your life, you won’t ever be able to stay 100% on point every single day…
But when you have a plan, know what your top priorities are, and schedule your time… you’ll at least be able to get through the non-negotiables so your business can continue to move forward.
