Finding new customers
Anytime is a great time to look for new Avon customers. Here are just a few ways to get people interested!
Find a Representative
Don’t miss out on the great opportunity to find more Customers with ‘Find a Representative’ Customer leads. It’s easy and all you need to do is tick two boxes! By opting into this functionality, Customers who are looking to get connected to a Representative will be presented with your Profile if you are in their local area. You can choose what you would like them to see but we suggest that the more details you give, the more likely they will be to select your profile. They don’t need to hang around and wait for you to get in touch as there is also the chance to link your profile to your personal online brochure so they can get ordering straight away! Go to your profile section and preferences to opt in.

Put in some leg work
Get out and about, and re-canvass your whole area – you’ll probably find people who weren’t interested before will have seen all the adverts on TV and in magazines, and want to find out more. People’s circumstances change, so it’s always worth asking to leave a brochure, as they might just order something.
Look for removal vans
When you notice ‘Sold’ signs outside houses – someone new is moving into the area, so they might not have seen a brochure before. This is a great opportunity to welcome your new neighbour, and introduce them to Avon at the same time. Just make sure you leave them to unpack for a week or two, or your brochure might get lost in the mess!
Has anyone you know just had a baby? New mums may be at home a lot, and they will be really busy too, so ordering toiletries and everyday essentials from home would be useful for them, especially as they can save so much money with our great deals.
Head to your local community centre and talk to people coming out of toddlers group or fitness classes. It’s a great way to meet new people and get chatting about what you do – don’t forget to take your brochures!
Remind friends and family
Show a new brochure to all your friends and family – it’s a good way to remind them they can order great products through you, and introduce them to any new products.
Get your hair done
Take some brochures when you visit your hairdresser – they know hundreds of people – and they’re great talkers. Ask them to spread the news about your Avon business!
Next time you visit an elderly relative or friend in a nursing home – why not take a few brochures with you? Older people make great Avon customers, especially around Christmas time, as they want to buy presents for their family, but may find it a struggle going to the shops.
Make sure you always have a brochure with you at work and that you tell people you are an Avon Representative. . If you have a noticeboard where you can place a card let them know your contact details and when your next order is due in.
Leave a brochure in the doctor’s surgery with the magazines and let the receptionists know you are an Avon Representative. Remember to put your contact details on the brochure.
Leave a brochure in the changing room or café area at the gym. Make sure the instructors know you are an Avon Representative.
Always make sure you have a brochure in your handbag – you never know when you might meet someone you can chat to and who might be interested in buying – at the school gates, at the supermarket checkout, at the bus stop – the opportunities are endless.
Wear your products
Using a current Avon handbag, or wearing some of our jewellery is a great way to introduce people – even strangers – to our ranges. When people compliment you, you can tell them about your business and give them a brochure.
Re-canvass existing homes
People are always moving house – so it will always pay to drop a brochure in every door now and again. Always re-canvass regularly – remember circumstances may have changed in the homes i.e. new people moving in/moving out.
When you have finished with your brochures – rather than just throw them away – use them to re-canvass a few of your homes. Each campaign, cover the next group of homes, and in no time you will have revisited them all.
Introductions from existing customers
Why not ask existing customers to find a new customer. Very often existing customers do not realise that they may show their Avon brochure to a friend! You could reward them for their efforts.
Show brochures at work / social events/ clubs
Potential customers may not have the opportunity to see an Avon brochure because they do not have an Avon Representative covering the road they live in, or they lead busy lives and they just do not have contact with one. By showing your brochures at work and at social events you could generate additional customers – and best of all you will be seeing them on a regular basis.
Show brochures at local shops and offices
- Shops – hairdressers, local shops and cafes are great. Employees love to look through the brochure during their coffee breaks.
- Offices – approach the reception area and ask if you can leave a brochure in the staff room/cafeteria. You may even find someone who is prepared to network for you by collecting and distributing the orders. A gift or a discount on their own order is often thanks enough.
