My Team Newsletter for Campaign 17


RepFest 2017 was a wonderful experience! I don't know if I'll ever attend another Avon convention, because I'm not a great fan of flying or expending large amounts of money on trips that require plane tickets, but I'm truly glad that this one was close by and I was able to attend. I had enough Avon points to cover the registration fee, I had a couple of roommates so we were able to share the expense, and my riders helped cover the cost of gas, so all in all the trip wasn't too expensive at all and well worth the cost. You can all share in the experience for only $10 plus your gas by attending RepFest at the Movies this Saturday, August 19, in Hoover, Alabama, and you will get a swag bag worth $73!! Here is the link to register: You can bring a friend, so bring your husband or wife or someone who is considering starting their own Avon business. The friend pays $10 and receives a swag bag as well. I'd take a car load of you myself, but I am running too far behind on my work so I'm going to skip it and leave my seat for someone who didn't get to go to RepFest. The thing we learned about at RepFest that excites me the most is the "espira" line of nutritional supplements coming in 2018. They will launch in January, I believe, at the perfect time to help our businesses most. Avon wants to concentrate on the holiday selling season during 4th Quarter and introduce "espira" in 1st Quarter - the time of year when more people start concentrating on improving their health than at any other time.

Two days before leaving for RepFest, the 35 Nested Representatives I earned in the Lead to Achieve challenge were added to my team, so I want to introduce all of them.  I'm excited to see that some of my Nested Reps. are on the top ten lists below. The Lead to Achieve incentive was a great blessing to my business and I am certainly thankful. If any of you, new, old, or nested, need anything from me, please know that I am only a phone call or text away - 256-479-4061

As you can tell from this list, Avon gave us people who lived in our general area when they could so it would be easier if we ever want to get together for meetings, events, etc. Speaking of meetings, I am going to have a Virtual Opportunity Meeting on my Facebook business page on Monday, August 28. The event will run from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., so even those who are working can participate. I have not done an event like this before, so it will be a learning experience for me. If you are on Facebook and we are not already Facebook friends, please go to and send me a friend request so I can add you to our Cloud Climbers Avon Team page. Then I will also be able to invite you to participate in the Opportunity Meeting and you can invite your friends. You never know who might be interested in joining you in your Avon journey, so don't make decisions for your friends. Invite them and let them decide whether or not to attend to learn more. I will make it very clear that anyone who becomes a Representative after attending the event at your invitation needs to put your code in as the Reference Code so that they are added to your team. I have plenty of people on my First Generation, so I want them to be on your First Generation, not mine. That will be of greater benefit to me in the long run, so please trust that I am not going to be grabbing your recruits and invite, Invite, INVITE! I'll be launching the event later this week so that people have plenty of time to see it and accept invitations. On the day of the event I will start with a live video welcoming everyone and then I'll post bits and pieces of information about the Avon business opportunity all day long. There will be a door prize of Avon products for one attendee, but I'm not sure how I'll be determining how people enter the drawing yet.

These six Cloud Climbers had Direct Delivery orders placed at their Online Stores in C17: Sandra MooreDarren MannahanAnna KinsaulMelanie HamiltonBarbie Breen, and Alison Hogan. Six out of ninety-nine team members is not a high percentage, so I suspect that many of you still don't have your Online Stores set up or perhaps you haven't been sharing your link. As you can see below my signature, I share my link on almost every email I send out, only removing it when I feel it is not appropriate. I also share it a lot on my Facebook business page, I include it in my email reminders to my customers, and it is on every brochure I hand out. Just this week I posted on a page about the Sweepstakes that is always on our personal Online Stores that we and our customers can enter and a Representative said she didn't know anything about the sweepstakes because she didn't have her Online Store set up. The reason she didn't have it set up is because she didn't know how to do so. I also heard from one of our Cloud Climbers that she needed my help in setting up her Online Store, but she really didn't need my help once I told her to just go to and look for her Web Office and she could find the info there. If you don't have yours set up, go to Web Office and then click on the pink square in the very center of the screen to set it up. It only takes a couple of minutes, because Avon already takes care of keeping the information there current. Please take an extra 10-15 minutes to personalize your Online Store so that your customers will know it is you they are shopping with and then start sharing your link. You cannot wait for people to find your Online Store, YOU must share your link. 

I won't do a Spotlight with this newsletter since I don't want it to become too long. Nested Reps, if you will provide me with just a little information about yourself and your goals and dreams/why you are an Avon Representative, I will be happy to Spotlight you in an upcoming newsletter. For most of us this is our order day for C18, so I hope you are getting ready to turn your order in before midnight. If it isn't where you want it to be to meet your goals, get on the phone or send out another email reminder! Don't let the day slip away without making money that you could have made if you had just asked.

You and your business are in my prayers. Have a great rest of the week!

Sandra Moore
Avon Gold Ambassador
