It doesn’t matter how small or large your Avon business is, it’s still a business so we need to treat it like one. If you treat your Avon business like a hobby, that is what it will become, and hobbies cost money. If you treat your business like a business, it will grow and grow until it becomes a large business.
Work on being professional in your business. If your company provides CDs or DVDs, spend the money to get the originals to pass out to people. Do not make photocopies of recruiting materials or copies of the CDs and DVDs. Same with Fundraising Flyers. Order them professionally printed, or get them printed at Kinkos.
What kind of impression are you giving out when you give out copies that don't look professional? It is your responsibility to show that you are a viable business and your appearance and the appearance of your sales tools are a part of that.
Be sure to follow up on leads and return phone calls right away. Maintain that professionalism every day. Keep your word. Your word is very important as that is a direct indication of you and your business.
Remember that people join people who they know, like and trust. If you want to attract successful people, then you need to become that person first. If you appear to be a hobbyist, that will be who you attract.
Work your business consistently. Our Avon business is built one person at a time. Day by day, week by week… there is no shortcut to building a strong business. Everything depends on consistently prospecting, developing and coaching people. Once you find your first recruit, and then your next 4 or 5 or even 12 recruits, and then when one of those gets a recruit… now you'll become addicted to growing your Avon business!
Work a little every day. Don’t let a single day go by without doing something to move your business forward. Set your goal to the top of your pay plan. It may feel like you’re moving really slowly at times, but when a couple of months go by and you look at your business and see how far you’ve come you’ll be surprised!
Then you’ll be glad you’re an Avon Representative, and you’ll know without a doubt that you do have the greatest opportunity in the world!
