How to Create an Avon Catalog Request for Social Media
Sometimes, you just want to have a way for people to step up and ask you for an Avon Brochure without you having to sell, sell, sell on social media.
So today we’re going to talk about how to create your own Avon Catalog Request.
This is an online form that a potential customer can fill out, which will send their contact information to you, so you can service them.
The video walks you how to create and use the form, and you’ll find details below:
The first thing you’ll need is a Gmail account. If you don’t already have one, you can get one free at Gmail.com.
Log into your gmail account, Click on the little box of squares in the top right corner, and then click on Drive.
Now you are in your Google Drive. It’s just like your hard drive on your computer except it’s in the cloud. You can save documents here if you’d like, and they can be accessed from anywhere.
Click on New / More / Google Forms
Be sure to Name your new form in two places – at the top of the form and the file name.
Now you’re going to create each field in your form. Start with the first one and type Name. Choose Short Answer as the Field Type, and Select Required.
Then Click on the Duplicate Field Button at the bottom of that field, and create all the rest of the fields you want in your form.
These are the fields you are going to want: Name, Address, City, State, Zip, Email, Phone. You can add more if desired.
Now you have all the fields in your form. You can add your description at the top under your Form Name if you want where is says Form Description.
Click on Responses. Then click on the little green square, which is for Spreadsheet.
Click on Create New Spreadsheet (it should already be selected), Then the name of the form with the word (Responses) should already be there. Leave that as is. Then click on Create.
That will create a spreadsheet to go along with your form. All your responses will be housed in this spreadsheet.
Click on the 3 dots to the right of the spreadsheet button. That will open a submenu. Click on Get Email Notifications for New Responses if it’s not already clicked. And then make sure Accepting Responses is turned on.
Now your form is complete and ready to go. To get the link for your form, click on the little eyeball in the top right corner. This is the preview button.
It will open your live form in a new window. Grab the address at the top of the screen. That is the link to your form.
Copy that link and go to a link shortener such as bitly.com to create a short version. That is the link you will use on Social Media. Post the link in your post, and add a picture and you’re set to go.
Watch the above video for more tips and tricks on how to actually use this Catalog Request Form and how to post it on Facebook.
