Avon RepFest 2017 Update 1/2017

Avon RepFest ’17 Information Update, as of January 2017

Avon RepFest 2017 in Nashville

 

Avon Representatives, we have more information on the Avon RepFest 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee and I want to pass it along to you!

 

 

 

What we already knew

 

This year’s conference will 3 days of fun & excitement on Saturday August 5 through Monday August 7, 2017 in Nashville, Tennessee. The Gaylord Opryland Resort will be our host hotel.

 

 

 

Not an Avon Rep yet? That’s okay! Become an Avon Representative here!

 

 

 

The New Stuff

 

Conference registration will open soon February 1, 2017 and is $139 per Representative. There will be room at RepFest for only 6,000 Reps, so get your registration submitted online via your Rep account at YourAvon.com as soon as possible! If you have a guest or co-applicant who will also be attending, their registration will also be $139. They will receive the same goodie bag and conference access as you!

 

Early Bird Registration is February 1st until March 31st for the discounted price of $99!

 

 

Hotel rooms at The Gaylord Opryland Resort have been blocked off and deeply discounted just for Avon Representatives at $169. That’s $120 cheaper than their normal rate! You will be able to reserve a single, double, triple, or quad. If you bunk with other Avon Reps, the cost will be split between you, costing you even less!

 

If $169 per night is still out of your budget, there are several hotels within walking distance of the Gaylord that offer rooms for less than $100 per night. And Nashville does have an RV park, if you wish to camp. If you choose to stay at the Gaylord, you must register for the conference first before booking your room! That is the only way you’ll get the Avon Rep room discount. If you’re staying at a near-by hotel, you can go ahead and book it and will get to lock it in before they’re all gone!

 

 

 

Goodie Bags are Avon’s way of both thanking you for attending and you can use the free products in them however you want – for your personal use or to give away or to sell! This year’s goodie bags are worth $150 each!

 

You can bring a guest to the conference if you wish. For them to receive a goodie bag and be able to attend the training seminars and such, they will need to be registered conference guest.

 

 

 

Seminars & workshops are an important part of Avon RepFest. This year’s seminar/workshop list hasn’t been finalized yet, but we all look forward to seeing it! Last year’s RepFest was the first to have a seminar for the non-Rep husbands or other guest who wanted to know a little more about Avon Rep life and how they could help support the Rep.

 

 

 

If you will need to book an airplane ticket to get there, it will be cheaper to go ahead and book it now rather than wait.

 

 

 

The annual Avon conference gives us the chance to see old friends & meet many new ones, no matter what our sales level is, no matter if we have a team or not! This will also be your opportunity to be among the first to see Avon’s newest products and innovations at the “product palooza”, as well getting in on some awesome training to help you build your Avon business.

How Much Does it Cost to Sell Avon?

How much does it cost to sell Avon?

How Much Does It Cost to Sell Avon

 

As with any business, there are some costs to selling Avon, but it’s not as much as you might think!

 

I believe everyone should have as much information as they can get to be able make an informed decision and that includes being up front about the costs with anyone who is interested in selling Avon. I will do my best to cover that here!

 

Avon is one of the lowest (if not *the* lowest) start-ups in direct sales. Avon Reps have a free website we can sell from 24/7. We have access to free training on our Representative website and at sales meetings. We don’t have to order every campaign. As long as your order is at least $50 before taxes & shipping, you earn money. There are no quotas to make or inventory to keep.

 

You will be responsible for paying for your starter kit, brochures, rep order shipping, and other business tools such as samples and product delivery bags.

 

 

Starter Kits

There are three starter kits to choose from and each is shipped to you for free. While you can purchase whichever one you want, each is designed to help you depending on what your goals are. The Quick Starter is $25, the Advanced is $50, and the Premium is $100.

New Rep Starter Kits Quick Reference Guide Beth Bailey BossLifeForMe.com

 

Brochures

Avon Brochures are our store. You don’t have to buy any, but without them, your store is essentially closed. Brochures are bought in packs of 10 in your choice of English or Spanish. You can certainly buy 1 pack of each if you want or need to. The cost of brochures depends on how many packs of 10 you buy and the more you buy, the less each brochure costs.

 

They currently start out at about $6.50 for the first pack. You can also order mark. magalogs, Avon Living magalogs, Outlet brochures, and other seasonal brochures all by packs of 5 or 10. It’s okay to start out with what you can afford. Just try to increase a little each campaign. (Avon adjusts the costs of brochures once every 2 or 3 years, so the amount seen above may no longer be accurate.)

 

 

Shipping

Another thing we as Avon Reps pay for is the shipping for our bulk orders. Our shipping cost doesn’t depend on how many boxes there are or how much the order weighs – just on whether or not it is a late order or an additional order, meaning you are ordering past your Representative order due date or you have already placed a campaign order and then go back and place a second order.

 

For on-time orders up to $399.99, shipping is $6. If your order is late or an additional order, shipping is $10. For all on-time orders of $400 and up, shipping is $9. If that order is either an additional or late order, shipping is $13.

 

Each time you place an order, shipping will be charged so make sure everything you need is in that regular order. Also, if you are ordering only brochures and/or other sales tools such as samples or product delivery bags, you can call Avon customer service and may get the shipping cost waived.

 

 

Demos, Samples, and other Sales Tools

Samples are another staple of an Avon business and are strongly recommended because they give your customers a way to try certain products before they buy. Avon has many samples at a nominal cost, so you. For example, most of our perfume/cologne samples are $1.25 for a pack of 12.

 

Demos definitely aren’t a must. However, demos are full-size products and give an added experience for the customer, since they get to also see & handle the product packaging such as the pretty perfume bottle. There’s an exclusive Avon Reps catalog we can buy demos from for an even bigger discount than if we buy from the brochure at whatever order level we’re at that campaign.

 

Don’t go overboard and try to buy all the samples and demos you see! Just like the brochures, it’s okay to start out buying what you can afford while working up a little more when you can!

 

 

Tip: You can use full-size products to create samples that aren’t available through Avon!

 

 

Other sales tools you will be responsible for yourself are your product delivery bags and clear literature bags you may find you want.

Other things you might want to invest in to help your business are tools like business cards. You can get deals on business cards at affordable prices and are a good investment to start with. Other things you can work up to are maybe a name badge, customized shirt, or even signage. None of these are a must to start out with. They can wait unless & until you have the funds to spend on them without sacrificing the business tools you DO need, like brochures!

 

 

Have a great day and I look forward to a successful partnership!

3 Things to Do for Your Face

If you don’t do anything else for your face, do these 3 things!

avon-skin-care-cleansers

 

A proper skincare routine doesn’t have to be extensive to keep your skin healthy and vibrant. Many of us have such a busy life, we think we just don’t have the time to make our facial skin a priority. If you don’t do anything else for your face, do these! Btw, Avon has a great free skin consult. Click here to start your consult.

Cleanse

Use a cleanser to wash your face every night, to remove dirt and oil accumulated during the day, as well as makeup – no matter what your skin type is.

 

– If your skin is oily or combination, also wash your face with a cleanser in the morning, to remove oil and bacteria accumulated during the night. Anew Clean Purifying Gel Cleanser is perfectly formulated for oily/combination skin. I have a mostly oily complexion myself. I’ve used Intensive Moisture Foot Cream ever since I first discovered it when I became an Avon Rep almost 5 years ago and love it. I’m waiting to get low on it and maybe try our Clean gel cleanser I already mentioned.

 

– If your skin type is dry, a morning swipe with a warm-wet washcloth should be sufficient and is still important to do even though a cleanser isn’t involved. Give this Comforting Cream & Mask a try.

 

– If you have both dry and acne-prone skin, this is considered to also be combination skin but make sure your cleanser is formulated to address acne-prone skin such as Avon ClearSkin Blemish Clearing Foaming Cleanser.

 

– If you have normal skin, that doesn’t mean you are necessarily exempt from cleansing in the morning! That will depend on how sensitive your skin is. Find a balanced formula cleanser. The cleanser for dry skin above is also formulated for normal skin. Maybe it’s what you’re looking for.

 

Using warm water is better than hot or cold to wash with because hot water is abrasive, will irritate skin, and will make dry skin drier while warm water will allow the cleanser to lather well. If you have oily skin, no, hot water is still not better.

Avon has great cleansers for all skin types and concerns. Click here to check out our cleansers.

Just a note about using any brand of Micellar water as a cleanser, which Avon does indeed offer, as well. It is my firm belief that while Micellar water is great as a toner, a freshen-up, and maybe the occasional last-resort cleaner if nothing else is on hand, it does not do the job as a daily facial cleanser to fully get rid of dirt, oil, and makeup.

A tip for your facial skin’s health: don’t go to bed with makeup still on. Your face needs a break to renew itself. Bedtime with a clean face (even with moisturizer/treatment lotion) is the perfect time for that. Sleeping with makeup still on your face will cause the collagen to break down, thus resulting in early-aging. One night of sleeping with makeup on likely won’t cause problems unless you’re prone to break-outs. The makeup will clog your pores and then bacteria sticks to your face, either of which causes acne. I don’t know if this happens to everyone but my pores open wide when I’m asleep. I don’t need more help having acne by not washing my face!

By the way, eye makeup should be removed daily, too. Otherwise, it’ll end up being rubbed off onto your pillow and may then be rubbed into your eyes, causing irritation. Avon Moisture Effective Eye Makeup Remover Lotion is also pretty popular.

 

 

 

Moisturize

Moisturizing actually is important to do, as well. Our skin wants to be hydrated and protected so either we do it with a lotion or day cream or the skin will produce it on it’s own. If the skin has to do it on it’s own, oil will likely be overproduced. Applying the right moisturizer for your skin type once to twice a day won’t make your face oilier. It will actually help calm down your skin’s impulse to produce it’s own.

If your skin is oily, a moisturizer for normal skin will of course just make it worse, so going with an oil-free formula will help keep it in check while adding moister to your skin without also adding oil. If your skin is dry, you want a rich formula that will add a little bit of oil to your skin. Yep, if you have normal skin, you can still benefit from moisturizing, too!

When choosing a day lotion or day cream, it should have SPF to protect your skin against the sun’s rays which it is exposed to every time we go outside in the daytime, even on light cloudy days and in winter. Yes, of course Avon has moisturizers, too! Our day lotions and day creams have SPF 15 to SPF 50. Click here to find them!

Scrub

Every face needs a good but gentle scrub every few days, at least once a week. If you have a dry complexion, a scrub may need to be done a few times a week. No matter what your skin type is, be gentle about it! Scrubbing too hard can cause your skin to develop tiny tears in the skin.

If you have acne-prone skin, I understand the thinking that scrubbing harder will better penetrate your pores – but it won’t! It will only make it worse by creating tiny tears around the pores and causing the acne to become more irritated (as if you want that, right?). Here’s a good scrub that also doubles as a cleanser. ClearSkin Professional Deep Pore Cleansing Scrub.

My personal favorite (that I start to freak out if I run low on without having a new one ready) is our ClearSkin Pore Penetrating Invigorating Scrub. It’s a fine-grain scrub formulated with Pore Firming Technology and also with Eucalyptus Extract and Witch Hazel to cleanse and refresh. I love the mint scent!
