Hurry! It's the Final days of Share the Love for $10 - and the FREEBIES are Getting Even Better!

Greetings to all of you!

Today is National Avon Recruiting Day and Avon Representatives are out in force spreading the Share the Love for $10 opportunity to potential team members, because it ends on August 20. 😢 I'm "stuck" at home (I actually love being at home), due to my son having my car while his is in the shop, so my recruiting is all being done online. If I haven't told you before, my Avon business is my full time job, so I am very much available as a Mentor to my Cloud Climbers team. If you become a Rep. through this link: smoore.avonrepresentative.com/opportunity/start, you will never have to wait long to hear from me when you have questions. But, you may want to know a little more about me first, so you can go to my Facebook page (@SandraMooreAvonLady) to see what is new with Avon and to see me! You can also go to @AvonUSARepresentatives to see other Representatives sharing what a blessing Avon has been for their lives and get lots of information about Avon Representative Appreciation Month, new products coming soon, and other great info being shared about the Avon business. 

Now, about the freebies getting even better: There has been such a great response to Share the Love for $10 that Avon is running low on the Best of Beauty kits that you get two of when you order the $10 kit, and two more of when you place a first order of any size. So....they are reserving those B of B kits for the new appointments and using A Boxes to replace them in the second part of the program!!! Therefore, some new Reps will be getting A Boxes, and those are an even better and more valuable than the B of B kits. Each A Box is different and I don't know which ones you might get, but each will have some full size products and maybe some trial size products and they come in a beautiful triangular box that is really a collectible you will want to keep. Even if that first order you place is just to get products for yourself at a 40% discount and even if you never place another order, this is truly a great offer. AND, I will also be sending out goodie packages to all new Cloud Climbers who join my team between now and the 20th of August and have a successful order of at least $150 in either their first or second campaign. You cannot lose with this deal, unless you wait too long to take advantage of it!! 

Thanks for your time,

Sandra Moore, IASR

Campaign 17 Cloud Climbers Team Newsletter - It's ARAM!


"This fall, we’re giving away $150,000 CASH with our Rake in the Cash incentive during Campaigns 20-24, 2018! You can be one of the winners—4 people will rake in $25,000 each and there’s other cash prizes, ranging from $500 all the way to $10,000. Here’s how you can get your share. Get one entry for every $100 increase over your Award Sales in the same Campaign last year. To see your sales last year, go to the “PRP Tracker” on the Rewards & Recognition page on YourAvon.com. If you’re using YourAvon 2.0, you can see this on the Earnings page. New Representatives can participate too! Everyone can get an early start on earning their entries by ordering Campaign 19 brochures. For each 10-pack you order above what you ordered in Campaign 18, you’ll earn one entry."

Greetings!

I thought I would start off the newsletter by posting the above notice in case you haven't seen it on YA yet. There will be a lot of winners, but you can't win if you don't enter and the first way to get entries is by ordering Campaign 19 brochures. If you order extra brochures and use them to get new customers, that's a great way to increase your sales for Campaigns 20-24 and gain even more entries! Be sure to mark those pages I told you about in the Campaign 19 brochure with your reference code in case your brochures end up in the hands of people who are interested in the Avon opportunity.

Don't forget about my own incentive for Campaign 18. Everyone who has an order for C18 will be entered into a drawing for one of two $20 bills. I'll do the drawing in a Facebook Live and it will be fun to see who gets the money! We are three days into the campaign and already have 16 orders turned in for a total of $2,199, so that's a good start toward the $8K I need. I'll give the money away even if we don't make the $8K, so get those orders in, no matter how small! If you have online store orders, those count too. 

My YA account rolled to 2.0 yesterday morning, so I've had just a few moments to take a look at it and have not yet entered an order. It's going to be a learning curve, but learning new things keeps your mind sharp and I'm sure it won't be long before I won't even be able to remember the old YA because I will be so used to this one. All new Reps. are coming in with 2.0, so I needed to go ahead and upgrade to be able to see what they see and be better prepared to help them. With 2.0 came a new look to my online store and I love it! 

Speaking of new Representatives, we have added no new Cloud Climbers in the first nine days of August, so I guess we will miss our goal of 27 by August 20. Keep promoting the Share the Love for $10 incentive and I will too and maybe we will have some names to report in the Campaign 18 newsletter. I had a call pretty late two nights ago from a potential Rep. who had a whole lot of questions for me, so I hope to at least have that one added soon. 😊  We have five Cloud Climbers who are Promoters with at least one person on their teams. Ruby NunneryJudith Lea, andLeslie Clendenon each have one, Rene Parker PC has three, and Deanna Buswell has four. Let's keep the team growing! I'd like to get back to the days of yore (about 15 years ago) when I had up to five generations of Cloud Climbers on the team. (I think I will try to keep the promoters names in Gold for future newsletters.)

As part of Avon Representative Appreciation Month, there will be free shipping on orders of $25 or more for a eight days! It starts this Sunday, August 12, and runs through Sunday, August 19. In addition to the free shipping, if they spend $50 or more, they'll get our Ultimate Skin Care Set, which is a $65 value! This is an amazing deal, so share the code ULTIMATEKIT with everyone you know, build those online orders, and "add some sizzle to your sales this summer".

My current new project is sending postcards to addresses in neighborhoods where there is no soliciting. We have a bunch of those around Monrovia and Madison, so I hope to gain some customers I have never been able to get to before and possibly even a recruit or two. With the first cards I ordered from VistaPrint, I chose a card with clouds on it and I did not take enough time to learn how to make changes on the back side. I'm still going to use them, but since I just was not satisfied because of the print being too small and light, I ordered another set and took a lot longer to study the system and get them right. It turned out that the cloud card could not be adjusted to suit my needs, so I used one that actually fits Avon better and will have an easy to read backside. I'll post pictures on the Cloud Climbers Avon Team FB page when they come in. All of this is a major investment in money and time, so I certainly don't expect many of you, if any, to give it a try until your business has built to a point to be able to reinvest this much in it, but I'm just letting you know what I'm trying and I'll update you on how well it works or, perhaps, doesn't work.

Have a great weekend!

Campaign 18 Customer Reminder and Incentive From Me!

This is the reminder that I send to my own team just before the beginning of the campaign so that they can use it as a reminder for their customers. It's a service I provide to my whole team of Cloud Climbers, and I would love to be providing it to you, as well! We are still in the Share the Love for $10 incentive right now, so you can begin your business for only $10 until August 20 by going to sellavon.com and using the reference code SMOORE when you order your kit. If you just click the link you will not be asked for a reference code, and that is all the better, because it means you will automatically become a Cloud Climber!! 


Greetings!

I've had some other projects in the works and ended up a little behind in getting this reminder to you. I know that a few of you will be placing your orders just as soon as we roll to Campaign 18 tomorrow night while others will be waiting until closer to the end, and at least three newbies are not expected to have orders until Campaign 19. For those new Cloud Climbers, this is the reminder that I send to my team and then to my customers each campaign. It is for you to use with your customers, either by forwarding it with your changes to fit your needs or by cutting and pasting to another email.( I don't think I have mentioned this before, but please always use Blind Copy when you send emails to your customers.) If you will be calling your customers that you don't have email addresses for (always a great idea), you can use some of these bargain prices as talking points in those calls. Don't forget that I will be giving away two crisp $20 bills and you must have an order for Campaign 18 to be in the drawing for these. We have close to 100 team members when we count those who are still pending because they have not placed orders, and less than half of those are placing orders regularly. We must do better! 😊 (Of course, if only 50 people place orders, you realize that your chances of being a winner are pretty good. 😉)

Here are some of the best buys of the Campaign 18 brochure:
  • Pg. 7, Love at 1st Lash Mascara has been getting a lot of good press from the Avon Reps who have been using it, including me, and it is now available for you to purchase for only $8.99. The Velvet Mulberry shade is only available for a limited time, and it is also available in Black and Black Brown.
  • Pg. 8, Beyond Color Lipstick and Lip Conditioner and True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss are any 2 for $10.
  • Pg. 10, MagiX Face Perfector, our colorless skin perfecting primer, is $8.99.
  • Pg. 14, True Color Eyeshadow Quads are $4.99. Do you have a palette to coordinate with your fall fashions? Romantic Mauves and Urban Skyline will go well with the fashions Avon is introducing in the Campaign 19 brochure.
  • Pg. 20, True Color Always on Point Eye Liner, in Black, Black Brown, Brown, and Midnight Navy, is on sale for $4.99. The sharpener is in the cap for this Best of Beauty liner, so you just give it a click when it gets dull.
  • Pg. 30, Need a new makeup brush? All of them are on sale this campaign!
  • Pg. 33, True Color Glossy Tube Lip Gloss, another Best of Beauty product, is only $3.99 and available in six shades.
  • Pg. 43, Anew Full Size Regimen 4-piece boxed kits in Ultimate and Platinum are available for only $55. AND, you get the matching cleanser free! You really can't beat this deal.
  • Pgs. 48 to 55, the Anew Clinical products are individually sale priced and Anew Power Serum is a WOW DEAL at only $19.99.
  • Pg. 74, Fragranced Shower Gels ($4.99), Body Lotions ($4.99), and Perfumed Skin Softeners ($2.99) are all sale priced. 
  • Pg. 79, Black Suede and Wild Country are $8.99 each.
  • Pg. 93, Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing & Repair Extra Strength Cream is half price of $2.99!
  • Pg. 109, Nurtura, Dramatic Firming Cream, and Banishing Cream are any 3 for $9.99.
  • Pg. 110, Full-size Hand Creams are $1.99 each (SSS, MT, and Silicone Glove), and Perfumed Liquid Deodorant is $2.99.
  • Pg. 111, Lip Balms are $1.29 each.
Don't forget that the Fortune is in the Follow Up, and have a great rest of the week!

Cloud Climbers Team Newsletter for C16, RepFest Recap, and C18 Incentive!



Greetings, Cloud Climbers!

Let's start with the RepFest Recap, shall we? I wasn't there, but I watched a lot of the FB Live videos posted on the Avon USA Representatives Facebook page. If you are on Facebook, that is one of the pages you really should follow, and you should also be on our team page: Cloud Climbers Avon Team. If you aren't on there yet, just let me know and I'll be glad to add you. Coming up for the holidays: Unicorns for the girls and dragons for the boys, vintage style makeup items and Velvet fragrance for the ladies, slippers and ? for the men, and fun decorative items for the home. Also coming, multivitamins for the kids. I hope these sell well, but I have seen some comments on Facebook from Reps and their kids who have tried them and said they weren't exactly tops in taste. I'll be ordering some to see for myself. 

In other news from RepFest: 
  • Share the Love for $10 has been going so well that Avon is extending it through August 20, so keep sharing the love and building our team! 😊
  • August has been declared Avon Representative Appreciation Month (ARAM) and Avon will be doing some special things for us, so watch your mail and YA for more info. I'm attaching the one image I've seen about this, so you can have a head start on working toward some of these prizes. 
  • As part of ARAM, there will be free shipping on all Direct Delivery orders over $25 placed at our online stores for several days during August. (I'm still trying to find out the exact dates, because I've seen conflicting info on this, including that it might be all month, which would be great!)
  • We will receive double dollars on our highest award sales campaign from C23 through C26, (I believe those are the ones included) which can help us reach President's Club or the next level of achievement.
  • We are getting a 2.0 version of YA that will roll out over the next few weeks. (I saw the option to upgrade to it on my home page earlier this week, but didn't do it then and now I don't see it anymore. Hmmm.) PLEASE be patient if there are bugs with it, because we know anytime you upgrade websites you generally have a few bugs to work out.
  • Avon is giving away $150,000 in cash from Campaigns 20 through 24, so watch for details on how to earn entries into the drawing. 
  • Beginning in C23, the "No Animal Testing" bunny will appear on all brochures, so you will be able to show it to anyone who worries that New Avon does animal testing. Explain to them that New Avon is separate from Avon International. Read all the details about this under the Beauty Buzz on the home page of YA. 
  • The Campaign 19 brochure will contain no professional models, only Avon Reps! I've ordered a few extras so I can pass them out to some of the former customers I haven't given a brochure to in awhile to see if it will encourage them to start purchasing again. 
  • RepFest2019 will be held in New Orleans.
  • The incentive trip to be earned in early 2019 is to Los Cabos, Mexico.

Top Ten in Sales for C16

 1. Sandra Moore HS  $1355
 2. Leslie Clendenon   $518
 3. Cynthia Blake   $356
 4. Gladys Faulk   $342
 5. Deanna Buswell   $307
 6. Rene Parker PC   $271
 7. Margaret McCrary   $270
 8. Stephanie Johnson   $241
 9. Kelli Violet   $192
10. Judith Lea   $180

We added three more team members since the last newsletter, and lost one of the new ones I announced in the last newsletter.* New Cloud Climbers are Selina Nelson of Decatur, AL, who is now a team member of Deanna BuswellShay Parker of Huntsville, AL, who is the daughter of Rene Parker and her newest team member, andBarbara Allen of Brighton, AL, who was an ALMA Lead of mine who decided to join Avon by ordering her Share the Love $10 Kit. Welcome to the Cloud Climbers, Avon ladies! I pray you will have much success with your businesses.

Now for the incentive from me. 😊  As you know, with a lot of perseverance and your help, I was able to make Bronze Leader a few campaigns ago. Unfortunately, the summer slump hit and team sales went down for the past few campaigns so I've only been getting paid at the Gold Ambassador level. If I am not mistaken, if we do not have team sales of at least $8,000 in C17 or C18, I will lose my title. 😢 C17 does not look promising at this time, so I'm pushing for C18 to be the campaign that keeps me at Bronze Leader status and PAYS me at Bronze Leader status. 😍 Therefore, I'm requesting that everyone have an order for C18, no matter how small and even if you just order at your own online store, so that we hit $8,000 in C18! Everyone who has an order will go into a drawing for a crisp $20 bill and I will be giving 2 of them away! Will you help? I hope I can count on you!!

Since this newsletter is a little long already, I'll feature the birthdays and Avon anniversaries in the next one. Keep working hard on your businesses, especially in view of the sales that can be yours during the upcoming holiday season, and let me know if there is any way that I can help you.

God bless you and your business!

*Allow me to explain about the team member we lost. Because of the ALMA Leads system that Avon has, anyone who does not put in the Reference Code for the Avon Rep whose recruit she/he wants to be will be automatically assigned to an Avon Rep who participates in the ALMA Leads program. Peggy Hobbs was an ALMA Lead I was in contact with who decided to become a Rep. during the Share the Love incentive and was therefore added to my team since she was assigned to me. As it turns out, Peggy really thought she was going to be mentored by another Rep, probably a friend of hers, so she contacted Avon within the required five days and in the required way to have the correction made and now she is with the Rep she wanted. In a similar situation, one of our Cloud Climbers had someone sign up under Share the Love who was accidentally assigned to another Rep who participates in ALMA and she did not correct the situation in the required way within five days, so she will remain with the other Rep and cannot be on our team. All of this explanation I have given is so that you will know how important it is to make sure the people you know understand how to be added to your team if they want to become Avon Reps and be mentored by you and also that you understand that corrections can be made as long as they are done correctly and within the allotted time. I will be happy to work with you if you need my help in any situations that come up while you are recruiting, but I need to know about them right away.
