While on my trip to Punta Cana, I met a Representative named Teddi Davies. Teddi is an amazing lady who has achieved many of the top ranks with Avon. She told me about the incredible way she grew her business to what it is today. I loved her ideas so much I wanted to share them with you. Teddi, if you’re reading this, please feel free to add to or correct anything I say here, and thank you for sharing your stories with me.
What Teddi did, was setup a table of products which she sold on the spot at a local hospital cafeteria or in front of the hospital gift shop, enticing employees and visitors a chance to stop and shop, as well as to pickup a catalog and a sample. Over the years, Teddi grew this to the point where she had 5-6 tables and sold thousands of dollars in product every week.
Teddi donated a percentage of her sales to the group of the hospital’s choice. Imagine how many departments in a busy hospital desperately need funds – whether it’s to make a more comfortable area for cancer patients to receive their treatments, or a family-friendly waiting area for family members of patients, or even to organizations such as March of Dimes, the American Heart Association, or many other groups that need funds.
What a wonderful way to increase your sales and prospect for new representatives and customers, all while helping your local community! Get out there and start talking to hospitals. Also keep in mind that there are many auxiliary groups within the hospitals who are always looking for ways to get more money. I personally do an actual fund-raiser 1-2 times each year for a local maternity hospital for unwed and underprivileged mothers. The auxiliary who works with me is very small and most of the members are elderly, but nonetheless, they do a great Avon fundraiser and raise much needed funds for these patients.
