Best Buys of Campaign 16, 2019 - Featuring Lip Tattoo!

Greetings, Avon Customers!

I'll be turning in my regular Campaign 16 order for local delivery customers on Monday night after 8:00 p.m. Other customers are welcome to shop for direct delivery from Avon at my online store

Here are some of the best buys of Campaign 16, and I want to particularly call your attention to the Wild Country After Shave Splash on page 95, since we have not had an after shave splash in awhile and customers have been asking for it. 
  • Pg. 7, Introducing 2-in-1 Lip Tattoo! Six long-lasting stains that you
    won't regret getting - even years later. 😉 Only $8.99 at intro price.
  • Pg. 11, True Color Eyeshadow Quad is $5.29 and available in 10 shade combinations. Don't miss the hand written tips on this and many other pages of this brochure!
  • Pg. 23, Our #1 best seller for skin care is Anew Ultimate Multi-Performance Day Cream! You can get it for $23.99 right now, and the same price is available on the Multi-Performance Night Cream, the Multi-Performance Eye System, and the Gold Peel-Off Mask
  • Pg. 27, If you want to give the entire Anew Ultimate or Anew Platinum regimen a try (my personal recommendation), your best buy is going to be the Regimen Set for each of these at only $52.49. Be sure to add the matching cleanser for $6.99!
  • Pgs. 28-31, Every now and then we hear "What about skin care for men? My husband needs it too!" and we reply that men are totally welcome to use any of our skin care products. However, the Hydra Fusion skin care line might appeal to them the most, since it does not have a "feminine" look and has little to no fragrance. Have him try it, because with Avon's 90 day money back guarantee you have nothing to lose. 
  • Pg. 33, If you are young and just beginning to take care of your skin, I recommend either the Hydra Fusion line or Vitale. All Vitale products are $21.99 each this campaign.
  • Pgs. 50-53, Lipstick, Lipstick, Lipstick! We've got a formula and a shade for every skin tone and lip type and they are all on sale for $5.29 this campaign. 
  • Pg. 61, We were out of stock on Glimmershadows, but they are coming back into stock now, so take a look at my online store to see what's available and let me know the shades you want.
  • Pgs. 76 - 79, The Far Away fragrances and the Haiku fragrances are $13.49 each, but you can still get the limited edition Far Away Aloha Eau de Parfum for only $12.99. 
  • Pg. 95, Woo Hoo!!!! Wild Country After Shave Splash is back and only $8.99!!! Please take note, however, that this is a "limited edition" so you need to order while you can, and stock up if you love it. We don't know if and when it will return once this batch is sold out. 
  • Pg. 186, Espira Multivitamins for Men, Women, and Women 40+ are any 2 for $12. Don't miss out on these great products that are all natural with 100% of the daily value of 19+ vitamins and minerals plus phytonutrients and whole food concentrates. Each bottle is a two month supply. Think about it.... 🙂
  • Back cover, The A Box contains 3 Avon Faves, including our top selling Clinical Eye Lift Pro, and it can be yours for only $10 with your $40 order. 
You may notice that sale prices on several items in this brochure are higher than sale prices of the past, (for example, eye quads for $5.29 instead of $4.99) so I expect these are the new sale prices that we will be seeing from now on. 

Thanks so much for your continued support of my Avon business! I'm challenging my team of Cloud Climbers to all have orders this campaign and get us back up into the $8K in team sales per campaign range where we belong, so any help you can give me with building my own order up (check your products to see what's running low, share this email with a friend, share my website link or your brochure with a friend, etc.) will be much appreciated!

Campaign 14, 2019, Cloud Climbers Newsletter!

I've fallen a little behind in my blog posting, so I'm trying to catch up. :) 


Greetings!

I hope all of you are enjoying your summer and I suspect that you are, because sales are down significantly so far this campaign. 😳😭😘 I suspect our customers might be spending their dollars on vacation expenses as well! My sales for Campaign 15 are about half of what they usually are, which is a bit surprising to me, but it happens now and then. I'm going to send an email out to my customers today to let them know that if they missed getting orders in to me due to vacations, etc., I can still take their orders and place them at my online store so they don't have to wait until Campaign 16. Since we have the coupon code CHICAGO that is good until July 10 to get free shipping on a $25 order, doing that will not be a problem for me, and it may build that order up a bit closer to where I want it!

Top Ten in Sales for Campaign 14

 1. Sandra Moore RC   $740
 2. Margo Prytz   $440
 3. Leslie Clendenon PC  $418
 4. Rene Parker PC  $281
 5. Hattie Bush   $276
 6. Gladys Faulk   $259
 7. Vicky White   $244
 8. Amy Budisalich  $217
 9. Linda Wardell   $208
10. Carolyn King   $167

This is the first campaign in a long time that we have had anyone in the Top Ten with sales under $200, which proves my point about sales overall being down. We have a few Cloud Climbers tracking toward President's Club, (Leslie Clendenon ($6,184), Rene Parker ($5,439), and Margo Prytz ($4,712), but we have passed the half way point in the year, so anyone who is not half way there ($5,000) needs to step it up just a bit to be sure they don't miss out on this goal! Remember, there are really only two ways to increase your sales...1) Get more customers, and 2) Get the customers you have to buy more products. It's a simple formula, so put some thought into how to make it work for you. 

Those celebrating Birthdays in July are: Helen Keeton (July 8), Patsy Cloud (July 11), Claire Philadelphia (July 23), Stacie Barnes (July 28), and Annetta Taylor (July 28). Congratulations to the following who are celebratingAvon Anniversaries in July: Barbara Treloar (31 years! on July 7), Amy Layne (1 year on July 12), Alison Hogan (2 years on July 13), Laura Boykin (1 year on July 16), Rhonda Kennedy (5 years on July 17), Linda Wardell(1 year on July 17), April Moore (3 years on July 18), Angi Price (7 years on July 23), Angelika Turner (5 years on July 26), and Barbara Allen (1 year on July 30). So....not many Cloud Climbers were born in July, but a whole lot of them started their businesses in July! Perhaps that means that we need to do some extra promoting of the business opportunity right now, since it seems that July is a month when many people start businesses. Hmmm. I think I can do something with that info on Facebook or Instagram. Can you? 

Tips for 2-in-1 Lip Tattoo: For the 2-in-1 Lip Tattoo to last really well, tell your customers to have their lips completely clean and dry with no lip balm on them before they apply, to wait 5 minutes or so for the product to dry before adding lip balm, and one Rep. said that applying our Eye Lid Primer to lips before applying the Lip Tattoo really made it last. Of course, that last tip contradicts the one about having lips completely clean, but it was a recommendation that I found in a Facebook group, so we can suggest it to customers who love the product but want to be sure it lasts a long time and let them decide whether to try it. Also, let your customers know that they need to store the product lying flat, not standing on end, in order to keep the contents flowing to both ends of the product.

After saying for months that I was not going to go to RepFest 2019 in New Orleans, no matter how many times my Avon buddy MaryBeth Bette encouraged me to go, I'm now registered to attend. I had been thinking about the fact that many things would be shared at this RepFest with LG buying us and that perhaps I should have planned to go all along, but it was still my intention not to go. However, MaryBeth sent me a message that another Avon buddy of ours was not going to be able to attend, she had one of the least expensive tickets ($79 for those who attended RepFest last year and registered early) that she needed to transfer to someone else, her space in MB's hotel room and in MB's traveling vehicle were also available and needed to be filled, so with all of that falling into my lap I decided to go ahead and head to RepFest with them in August! I don't know of any other Cloud Climbers who are going, but I will keep you informed on what we learn, and Avon will do so as well. I know that some videos and announcements will be made available to you either as they happen or very soon afterwards on the Avon USA Representatives Facebook page, but I know that many of you are not on Facebook, so I will try to get emails sent out during the event with some info. 

One more thing that I just become aware of yesterday. I've been sharing the link to my online store as - smoore.avonrepresentative.com - because I knew that would work and it was simple with no slashes. However, yesterday I was on the phone with a new customer who had never been to my online store and I was trying to walk him through placing an order for the FootWorks Antifungal Spray that he wanted. When I gave him my website link in the usual way he said that using it took him to a page with several options. I tried using the link myself and the search engine flipped my entry to - avon.com/myavon/smoore - so I gave him that link and it went straight to my online store. Since I could not recreate his experience with the first link on my own computer, I had my daughter use her brand new laptop that has never been used to go to my online store to try that link so I could see what he saw. Well, when my daughter tried it, it went straight to my online store with no problem. Hmmm. I still don't know why the link didn't work for him unless he really didn't have it typed correctly. I checked Web Office on Avon Now and my online store there is still showing as youravon.com/smoore, so maybe I'll go back to sharing that instead of using smoore.avonrepresentative.com just in case that one doesn't work for some people. I did find it very interesting that the search bar flips the address to something different now (avon.com/myavon/smoore instead of smoore.avonrepresentative.com) once it goes to my online store.

Have a great rest of the weekend, remember that I am praying for you and your business daily, and let me know if there is any way that I can help you!

Who Are My Avon Customers?

Good Saturday morning to you! I was just now printing out invoices for a couple of my customers and it got me to thinking about the variety of customers I have. Who buys Avon products from this Avon Lady? Here is a small sampling of my local delivery customers and helpers:

  • an 80 something lady in a small frame house who buys mostly skin care and bath & body products,
  • an aerobics teacher living in one of the more upscale communities in the area who buys products for herself and her students (wouldn't it be nice to have a teacher like that?)
  • an older gentleman who buys fragrance for himself and his girlfriend,
  • a lady I never see because she prefers to leave a check on the door so her dogs don't try to get out when I deliver,
  • an older widow who I stop in to chat with when she has an order,
  • a handicapped neighbor of hers who prefers that I sit down with her and the brochure so she can just go ahead and flip through it and place an order then,
  • a customer who has been buying Ultimate products almost exclusively for many years and keeps a stash in the fridge to make sure she never runs out,
  • a helper who is also one of my team members. (Not many team leaders have a situation like ours, I'm sure. She keeps her account open for personal purchases at a discount, but she doesn't want to sell products now so she gives her co-workers orders to me.)
  • a customer who was an Avon Rep herself for many years. Actually, I have a few like this.
  • a customer who is an entrepreneur with two clothing companies she started - one for little boys and one for little girls - and the leader of a local networking group,
  • a customer about my age who has been ordering Avon through me for at least 25 of the 32 years I've been in business,
  • an older lady who just recently became a customer because she fell in love with FootWorks products,
  • customers who live in a retirement facility and still love to look and smell nice, of course.
Like I said, that is just a small sampling. They range in age from their 30s to 80s. They come from all demographics and earnings levels. They live in small low rent apartments all the way up to half million dollar homes. They are employed in all types of jobs, are stay at home moms, or they are retired. In other words, Avon products are for everyone! If you haven't investigated to find out why, it is high time that you did. Also, If you love meeting new people and being a blessing to others by your visits and encouragement while supplying the products they have come to love, if you want to give personalized service to people and be blessed by the way they appreciate your service, you are the type of person I want on my Cloud Climbers team and it is high time you investigated that opportunity as well!

Campaign 15 Customer Reminder - SALE! SALE! SALE!

Greetings!

Thanks so much for your continued support of my Avon business! You make selling Avon fun and profitable* for me, and I may not tell you how much I appreciate that often enough. We are now in our biggest sale campaign of the year, with items up to 65% off. It is important to notice, however, that the discontinued items on pages 1-39 are all while supplies last and also final sale/no returns. Please understand that I will not be able to accept these items back for returns unless something arrives damaged. Also, since they are while supplies last, you may want to go ahead and order them quickly at my online store: smoore.avonrepresentative.com

Almost everything Avon has to offer appears on sale in this brochure, so here are just a few items that I will call your attention to:
  • Pgs. 73-75, Anew Hydra Fusion products are all on sale. These products are getting great reviews, so don't let your sun parched skin wait any longer for maximum moisture!
  • Pg. 83, Our customers who need extreme sun protection love Anew Skinvincible Day Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 50. The Skinvincible Deep Recovery Cream is a great addition to it for night-time wear. Both of these are fragrance-free for sensitive skin.
  • Pg. 113, The WOW DEAL is Mesmerize Cologne for men at only $9.99!
  • Back cover, We've got some new shades in Glimmersticks for Eyes and Brows, and all are $2.99 each.
I will be turning in my regularly scheduled Avon order on Monday night, July 1. At that time I can order from C15, C14, and C13, and I can combine items from those campaigns to get you the best prices. 

Have you heard about our great new 2-in-1 Lip Tattoo?** It won't be available in the brochure until Campaign 16, at which time it will be introductory price of $8.99. However, Avon has released the product for sale on our online stores as of June 26, at the regular price of $12 or any 2 for $20. If you take advantage of the any 2 for $20 offer, you will receive a FREE compact mirror when you use the code LIPDUO at checkout! If the Lip Tattoo does not appeal to you, free shipping on a $25 order might, so use the code CHICAGO to get that until July 10. If your order is over $40 (and with all the great deals we have right now it very well might be), you will automatically get free shipping so you can use the code WELCOME10 to get 10% off your order if you have not yet used that one this year. If your order is over $50, you can use the code GLOWNOW to get a free Illuminating Stick until the end of June, or use the code TAKE10 to get 10% off your order if you have not used it yet this year. Whew! What a lot of great coupon codes Avon is blessing us with right now!! There are even a couple more available for free jewelry, so go to my online store at smoore.avonrepresentative.com to see those.

**I did a couple of videos on the Lip Tattoo on my FB business page if you want to take a look at those here: https://www.facebook.com/sandramooreavonlady/

Get Your Summer Glow On!

Avon has what you need to get glowing this summer. Let's face it, we all like to glow but we don't all want to spend a lot of time in the sun and some of us don't have a lot of time TO spend in the sun. With these products, you can have glowing skin anytime.

What's "Glowing" in Campaign 14!

Greetings!

I'll start with the special message. Some Avon Reps are now using text messaging a lot more than emailing to contact their customers. I haven't done it yet, although I do have customers who text me orders. If you would like for me to text the new brochure link to you at the beginning of each campaign, please send me a text at 256-479-4061 with your name and say "I want the book link" and I'll be glad to do that. I promise not to spam you, and only send the brochure once each campaign. I'll send it at the beginning in case you want to go ahead and place your order online either for me to add to my order or for direct delivery from Avon. Either way works for me, so do what is best for you. 

I'm sending this reminder early and will only send it once, because I am going to be out of town on my summer mission trip from Friday through next Thursday. I am planning to place my order on Monday night, June 17, so if you need to call me please call 256-479-4061 as that is my cell phone. I will be able to take orders on my phone (or by email or FB Messenger) and submit them from my phone, so please do not hesitate to order this campaign. Should you want to look at The Book online, the link to the brochure is highlighted just below in the next line.

Here are some of the best buys I spotted in the Campaign 14 brochure:
  • Pg. 3, Lip Glow Lip Gloss is any 2 for $10. 
  • Pg. 9, Beyond Color Lip Conditioner or Lipstick are $4.99 each.
  • Pg. 13, Gel Finish Top Coat and Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel are $5.99 each. Pick a pretty shade for a pedicure!
  • Pgs. 20-23, All Mascaras are on sale this campaign, including Love at 1st Lash.
  • Pgs. 26/27, All Foundations are on sale for $8.99 each.
  • Pg. 30, Dew Kiss and Flavor Savers Lip Balms are $1.29 each.
  • Pg. 43, The WOW DEAL is Far Away Eau de Parfum for $9.99.
  • Pg. 57, Perceive Cologne for men is specially priced at $12.99.
  • Pg. 71, Anew Power Serum is $22.99.
  • Pg. 74, The original Anew Clinical product, Advanced Wrinkle Corrector, is only $19.99.
  • Pg. 78, Anew Clinical Extra Strength Retexturizing Peel has an exclusive Multi-Acid Complex to give you results similar to a pro glycolic peel. (Read more on the page.)
  • Pgs. 80/81, 4-Piece Boxed Kit of Ultimate Skin Care products and Platinum Skin Care products are $50 each kit.
  • Pg. 107, Another WOW DEAL is Skin So Soft Bonus-Size Shower Gel for $9.99 each. I love the convenience of these pump bottles for every one in the household!
  • Pg. 186/187, The Glow Baby Glow A Box gives you the opportunity to try two of our favorite skin care serums as well as a full size Crave Lip Gloss and Full Size Anew Vitamin C Antioxidant Lip Treatment. The Lip Treatment is already a customer favorite!
Thanks so much for your loyal support of my business! If you feel inclined to forward this email to friends and family members, that would be greatly appreciated. I'm working on a Big Hairy Audacious Goal for June - having one online direct delivery order for every day of the month (a total of 30 orders) - so getting The Book link out to as many people as possible will certainly help me meet that goal. As of this writing it is going well, with 11 orders in 13 days. 🙂

Cloud Climbers Newsletter for Campaign 13, 2019

Greetings!

I'm packing this morning to leave town on my annual stateside mission trip, (this year we are off to Ferguson, Missouri) but I realized I had not gotten the C13 Newsletter done, so I'm allotting myself just a few minutes for this. If I have any typos, please forgive me. 🙂

Top Ten in Sales for Campaign 13

 1. Sandra Moore RC   $1,223
 2. Leslie Clendenon PC   $494
 3. Gladys Faulk   $367
 4. Kelli Violet   $322
 5. Amy Budisalich   $321    (1st Campaign and look at you in the Top Ten already!)
 6. Regina Smith   $313
 7. Deanna Buswell   $235
 8. Rene Parker PC   $232
 9. Sharon Tibbs   $230
10. Margo Prytz   $217

We are half way through the selling cycle and Leslie Clendenon and Rene Parker are already over half way to President's Club for the year, so congratulations to both of them for keeping their businesses in good shape! I know that once you make PC you never want to fall out of it because the 40% guaranteed earnings on beauty products gives you a great incentive to stay. Margo Prytz is fast approaching the half way point, so I feel certain that she will make PC this year as well. 

In the last newsletter I asked Anna Kinsaul for tips about how she got customers to order at her online store, because she had over $400 in direct delivery sales in Campaign 11. She explained that she lives in a large subdivision with probably 1500 residents or more and they have a Facebook group for their neighborhood. Most of the people in the subdivision range in age from their late 20s to their early 40s and there are many children. She had simply posted once in the FB group that she was an Avon Representative and asked if anyone wanted Bug Guard and "the orders flooded in". Because she can do so, she places orders for them at her own online store whenever she has enough for a $40 order (so that she does not pay shipping), since most of them have smaller than $40 orders. Then she either delivers the orders to them or they come by her house to pick them up. So....the moral is that if YOU have a place to post about Bug Guard, do it! And if you want to order at your online store rather than through the usual way, do that too! Just remember that you cannot purchase brochures, samples, demos, etc. in that way and you will pay up front for orders and have your earnings on them deposited to your bank account.  

We've got someone to Spotlight this campaign, as our newest Cloud Climber, Amy Budisalich, shared some information about herself with me. She has been married to Derek for almost 22 years and they have two daughters: Riley 917) and Peyton (13). The moved from Tucson to Priceville in 2013 but she is originally from Illinois, which is where she grew up and where she met Derek. Amy has been an RN since 2008 and has been working at Sav-a-Life Pregnancy Resource Center for the past 2 years doing ultrasounds. She said she loves her job, and that is always a good thing! She states, "I've been back and forth about becoming a rep for a few years now. I've loved and used Avon for a long time. I'm excited about this new adventure and others around me are excited for me! I made a business page on Facebook, and I've gotten some good feedback there. My sister in IL has placed 2 orders already, and the ladies I work with are anxiously awaiting the arrival of my books. They have lists of items they want to order." As you can see from Amy making the Top Ten in her first campaign, she is off to a great start with Avon! Amy, I pray that your success will continue. 

FYI: Please be sure to read the information in the Beauty Buzz each week. Many Reps are having trouble submitting their orders because of the new feature that requires you to select whether to use your credit with Avon (some of you have that and some do not), when you pay your bill and you must do it before you can submit the order. If you did not read that in the BB, go to your home page, scroll down to the BB, choose "View All" at the bottom of that section, and then click on "Jun 3-9" to view last weeks articles. Also, some Reps are having issues with a pop-up about accepting the Terms and Conditions coming up and not seeing a way to accept them. I'm hoping all of that has been worked out or will be worked out when system maintenance is done this weekend. I haven't heard from any of you about the issue, I've just seen it talked about in some FB groups, so perhaps the Cloud Climbers have all managed to climb that cloud with no problem. We are a smart team, after all. 😊

That's all I have time for right now, so I'll report more on how my June BHAG is going in the next newsletter, but so far it is going pretty good. Also, I'm pretty sure there is a drawing I'm supposed to be doing for the last Challenge, but that will have to wait as well. May God bless each and every one of you. I'm praying for you and your business each day.
