What happens next
In the next 24 hours i will be sending your starter pack,,,
I will also add to our help group
I will send your parcel by uk mail this normally take up to 5 days, you will get a email or text saying its on the way to you
In the mean time you can open your Avon account, you will have been given your account number so now its time to set up your own password (as Avon will not do this for you) registration
Once you have set up your password you can open your brand new Avon store.
You will have a chance here to choose a new store name please click this link if you need help choosing a name?
I also find opening a Facebook page is great as you can invite friends etc and place ads for new items on your online store, it will also stop Facebook think you are spamming your adds
I will also send you a video saying your new to Avon and you can add this with your link to your Facebook wall
Start asking friends if they would like a book from you and also ask family or friends to share your post
For the next couple of days try and build your self a customer base online and also in your street or local area, (please ask for help if you need more homes ) shops are also great , the school gates etc
By now you will have got your starter pack you will have 40 books use the number that is the lowest first, the next lot of books are for next time so please put save ,
how to find your order dates
You will get a order forms which you fill in with your details and choose a delivery date and a pick up date, its normally better to give them a couple days. then pick up the books up, remember to put the orders safe then you can reuse the books again you may find you need to go back a couple of times so i have enclosed some pink calling cards .I would do this a number of times as you have up to 3 weeks with each book
Once you have collected all your orders its time to ether place online or by phone to get commission please remember to get your orders to min rate also all orders are free with p and p if the order is over £30, or if not £1.50 each order do not forget to order order forms, book bags if needed and also some paper bags to make your orders up in to , the codes will be with your book
The orders will come to your home within normally five days please check the amount of boxes you are signing for , then double check your items on the invoice which will be in the box marked invoice
If you have items missing please call Avon and not my self
The best way of getting into your boxes is by turning them upside down, this allows you to keep the ‘lid’ of the box and so then enable you to reuse them.
You will then need to look for box 1 which will contain your invoice. As with any deliver this needs to be checked and everyone has their own system on how they do it.
I personally choose to empty all my boxes and group the products together e.g children’s products, a bubble bath group etc, this then means I can go through each group and tick the product off.
Some people choose to find the item on the invoice and check it off as they remove an item from a box.
There is no right or wrong way, its what works for you.
Once I’ve checked I have everything I will then start bagging up for customers.
I tend to do one slip at a time and then place the complete bag in a box, I find this the neatest way of storing orders and moving them around
Once its all done its then time to deliver their goods along with their copy of the latest brochure.
I normally let customers know by text, call or Facebook that their order has arrived and arrange delivery of their goods.
I tend to work on a route type plan as my customer base is quite spread out.
Again this is something which you will find a system that works for you.
Always collect the payment as you collect goods to limit loss of products, while most people are honest, there is always the chance that they may ‘forget’ to pay you or just not pay you intentionally. You still have to pay for the goods regardless of if they have given you the money or not. Once goods are delivered to you, they are your responsibility.
You will then need to make your payment to AVON. (This is due 13 days after your invoice) this can be paid via giro or card payment from your bank, which ever is easiest for you.
Avon will tell you our much you earned you take out of the Avon money as cash
Then you start again collecting your new book etc
