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.

 

 

To join me and become an Avon Representative, visit BossLifeForMe.com  and start your own 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!

Avon’s KickStart New Representative Program

KickStart Your Avon Sales Business

become an avon rep we give you the opportunity you make rewarding work online set your own hours earn

Avon’s new and improved New Representative Program, known as KickStart, begins September 16, 2016. There are changes coming that are designed to improve the new rep experience.

 

To become an Avon Representative, visit my Start page at bethbailey.avonrepresentative.com/opportunity/start

 

The Starter Kits are getting seriously updated!

Anyone becoming an Avon Representative will have not one but three Starter Kits to choose from! You can take our optional quiz to help you choose the Starter Kit based on your needs and the goals you have for your business. I encourage you to review the starter kits and their features in the 3 photos just below and to take the quiz at the time of enrollment, since both together will help you to know which kit you should get.

 

avon-quick-starter-kit

 

avon-starter-kit-advanced

 

avon-premium-starter-kit

 

Which Starter Kit you will receive is a choice you make at the time of enrollment only. They are not available to be ordered later and are limited to only one per Representative. There will be plenty of bundle opportunities for you to take advantage of in your coming Campaigns. These additional opportunities to get key product bundles at Representative-only prices are to assist you in achieving your business goals.

 

Once new representative enrollment is completed, your Starter Kit will ship out to you directly from Avon. The Starter Kit must be paid for in full before shipping. You should receive it in within three to four business days. In the meantime, you should set up and personalize your eStore. It does not take much time and is worth it to be able to have customers shop with you online. Sharing your eStore with family and friends on social media is the perfect way to start promoting your new Avon business.

 

Starter Kits shipping to new Representatives in Alaska, Hawaii, or Guam may take up to 7-8 business days. If you are a Trendsetter Representative, your advance literature will come to you as a separate shipment if it is not available at the time your Starter Kit ships out.

 

 

Achieving the 3 following components can result in you earning $1,000 in your first 90 Days.

1 – Sales

Earnings for new representatives has been redrafted to encourage building your business, begins in your 1st Campaign and ends with your 6th. You will receive a minimum of 40% earnings when you meet the sales goal for that Campaign. The 40% earnings will be for all products sales. This includes products in any and all of the brochures, all direct delivery orders you receive (customers buying from your online store and this is usually 20-25% earnings*), even fixed earnings items (which are normally 20-25% earnings*).

The sales goals do not include tax nor our One Simple Fee shipping cost. All of your online order, direct delivery orders, sales center orders, and regular representative delivery orders count toward your per-Campaign sales total.

Avon KickStart new rep earnings sales goals

If you miss a sales goal, no worries – you are still in the KickStart program! You will not have to go straight to the sliding scale from here on out. Each Campaign stands alone and you can achieve the 40% earnings even if you miss a previous sales goal. Any Campaigns where you miss the goal, your earnings will be:

Avon KickStart new rep earnings when sales goals aren't met

 

If, in any of the 6 KickStart Campaigns, you over-achieve your sales goal to a total of $925-$1574.99, your discount on all full-earnings products go up to 45%! If your total is at least $1575, then you earn 50% on all full-earnings products!

 

 

2 – Recruiting

In addition to the Sales Component, as a new representative you will qualify for a $50 bonus for each Qualified KickStart Recruit referred during your first 6 Campaigns. The QKR must have a first order of $150 or more and pay for it on time within their first 30 days of enrollment.

 

3 – KickStart Performance Bonus

When you achieve all of your sales goals and recruit at least 3 Qualified KickStart Recruits within your 1st 6 Campaigns, you will earn an additional $200 bonus. This bonus will be paid out at the close of your 6th Campaign, as long as all of your sales goals and recruiting criteria were met and your own account is active and in good standing.

 

 

 

There are more changes happening. You can find those in Avon All Aboard with Onboarding.

 

IMPORTANT EDIT – DON’T LEAVE THIS OUT OF YOUR READ: I unintentionally left out one very important thing! While I have mentioned starting Avon online over and over, the first reason September 16, 2016 is so important is because as of that date, new Avon Representatives can come onboard only online. Avon Leaders no longer have to buy and maintain starter kits. No more paper contracts to have to fill out and send in to Avon. In-person onboarding can still be accomplished as long as someone has a computer and internet. Smartphones and tablets count. Payment is now made only to Avon and only by credit/debit card (pre-paid cards count).

Why and How to Make Your Self-Employment Public on Facebook

Why & how to make your self-employment public on Facebook

Why & how to make your self-employment public on Facebook

Can everyone see your self-employment information on Facebook, even if they’re not on your Friends’ list? You want them to!  Why? If you have an online business, having an online presence is crucial. Having your self-employment public on your personal Facebook timeline will help promote your business even when you’re not online.

 

 

While Facebook isn’t the end-all, be-all for an online presence, it has almost 1.8 billion users and has become a search engine in it’s own right, so it certainly helps to utilize what you have. Not everyone opts to have a social media account, but if you do and it’s on Facebook, are you making the most of your Timeline to promote your business? I’m not talking about posting about your business 5 times a day so that you are always showing up in your Friends Newsfeed. Too much of that and it could become a problem to them (I know it would mine!). I’m talking about something very simple that I stumbled upon on my own timeline that I think you need to be doing, too: making it possible for even those who aren’t your Facebook Friends to see your business just by glancing at your About section on your personal timeline.

 

 

Here’s how you achieve that: On your Facebook Timeline, go to your About section, go into Work & Education, click on Edit. If you haven’t already added your self-employment to your employment section, do that now. You can add your website URL(s) to the description box. If you have a Facebook Page for your business (if you don’t, why not?), you can indicate your Page as your “Employer” by starting to type the name of your Page & selecting it when it pops up. That little  audience drop-down box beside Employer, make sure you select Public instead of leaving it at Friends so that everyone can see your employment even if they’re not your Facebook friends. Make sure you click “Save Changes” and “Done Editing”!

 

 

On the other side of that same page, in your Contact Information: Websites section, add your website URL(s). You can add up to six URLs. In the audience drop-down box right beside that, click Public instead of leaving it at Friends. Make sure you click “Save”!

 

 

There – you’re done! Now, everyone can see you’re self-employed, what services/products you can provide them, and they can easily access your Facebook Page from your personal timeline!
