C19 Cloud Climbers Team Newsletter

Greetings all you lovely Cloud Climbers!

It is past time for me to get the Campaign 19 newsletter out to you, but September has been such a busy month so far and will continue to be a busy month, with so much to share too, that I have not been able to get it all together until now. I'll start with all the recognition, but please read through to the end for the important updates to Avon procedures.

Top Ten in Sales for C19   

 1. Sandra Moore  HS
 2. Melanie Hamilton
 3. Steffanie Erdelt
 4. Tisha Johnson
 5. Alison Hogan
 6. Phyllis Smith
 7. Margaret McCrary 
 8. Carolyn King
 9. Rene Parker  PC
10. Hattie Bush

I'm happy to report that all of the above had sales over $250, and most were well over $250. I stocked up on a few items for an upcoming event, so I still ended up in the #1 spot, but if I had not done that, Melanie would have come close to out selling me!

Top Four in Sales for 2017 Year-to-Date

1. Sandra Moore  HS
2. Steffanie Erdelt
3. Rene Parker  PC
4. Phyllis Smith

If SteffanieRene, and Phyllis stay focused through the end of the year, all of them have a good opportunity to be in President's Club next year. I sure hope so! Remember, S, R, and P, that it only takes $10,000 in sales to be in PC. All three of you are just over half-way there and it may seem like it is too late in the year to make up the remaining amount, but 4th Quarter is almost here and sales are always best then. I have faith that you can do it! Buy this Avon necklace for yourself as a reminder that you can step out of your comfort zone and build your business better than it has ever been before. :)

New to our team since the last newsletter are: Stan Matthews of Stevenson, Alabama, Mary Bowen of La Fayette, Georgia, Tracie Myrick of Valley Head, Alabama, and Cassandra Mae Young of Rancho Cordova, California. Congratulations go to new Promoter Deanna Buswell who recruited Cassandra as her first team member when she found her on Facebook and made an effort to reach out and bring her into Avon as a Cloud Climber. I haven't had any return communication from Stan, Mary, or Tracie, but Cassandra has been talking to both Deanna and myself and I know she is already working hard to build a successful Avon business. 

A few of our Cloud Climbers have been and are still struggling with some health challenges. I know of two who were having procedures done today and one who continues to take treatments for breast cancer. There are probably others who I don't know about, but these I am praying for and I want you ALL to know that I remember you frequently in prayer - praying for the success of your businesses and for any challenges that you have. Sophya Johnson gave birth to a baby boy this week, so we congratulate her on the new addition to her family! Like a truly dedicated Avon lady, she is getting her order turned in for Campaign 20 even if it is a few days late due to that sweet baby being born. Sophya does not want to disappoint her customers or miss out on any sales! 

Here is news that I thought we would have received an email from Avon about today, because I know that it started today. I'm including the picture I received from my Leadership Coach on Thursday that explains it as well as pictures of the three starter kits so that you can go ahead and be sharing this good news with your potential team members. 

In other big news, most of you should have received an email from Avon this week about going to a Flexible ordering system in Campaign 23. Yay! I've known this was coming but did not know when. If you did not receive the email, you are either not a part of the program or Avon does not have a valid email address for you. What this means for those who are on Flexible ordering is that YOU get to choose which day of the two week campaign period you want to turn in your order. I suggest that you pick a day and stick with it as much as you can so that your customers always know which day is your day for ordering. Flexible ordering also means that if you have to turn your order in late for some reason you will not be charged a late fee. For myself, I plan to back up my orders by one day because right now they are coming late on a Friday afternoon, sometimes as late as 7:30 or 8:00, and since we generally have other activities going on through the weekend I can't even get my order sorted until Monday. Backing it up a day will get it to me on Thursday and I can sort on Friday and be ready to deliver on Monday.  If you are not yet on Flexible ordering, don't despair, because it will come to you eventually as Avon rolls this system out across the country. 

I received a text this afternoon from the person who won the door prize at the booth I had at an event last Saturday. She was so excited and said she had received the package I had sent (I ordered her door prize at my online store for delivery to her and it came today) and that it made her week. I replied that I was glad someone won who took the time to express appreciation for her gifts, because I have delivered door prizes to people who never even said "Thank you." I hope that all of you remember toexpress appreciation to your customers and to anyone who does something special for you that they did not have to do. I'm sure you like to be appreciated yourself, so don't forget to appreciate others. That's my sermon for today. ;) 

I'm going to keep asking you to add me as a friend on Facebook until all of you who use Facebook have added me. :)  I want to be able to add you to our team page so we can share with each other. There are only about 1/3 of you in that group now and we need to build that number and help each other with tips, encouragement, and answering questions. Find me here:  There are times that I do things/post things there that don't appear in the Newsletter. For example, I recently posted an offer for those who had eStore sales in C19 to go into a drawing for a package of samples. I did a FB Live video for the drawing and Brittney Monti was the winner. I haven't made it by the Post Office yet to mail your package, Brittney, but I'll get there soon. 
That's it for now. Somebody (new or old) give me some information about themselves to put in the Spotlight next campaign, okay? TIA!

"The Power of Pink"

Just a couple of posts ago I told you all about the new Avon A Boxes. To recap: There is a new A Box every campaign and each one has a theme that fits with the brochure it is attached to. You can purchase the A Box for only $10 when you have a $40 order from the brochure, sale fliers, mark., Avon Living, or the Outlet. Since Campaign 21 is our "Shop for the Greater Goods" campaign, the A Box is "The Power of Pink." If you are shopping at my online store, the item number to use is 729-990. Unlike some "box" programs, there are no surprises in these boxes. You can always see every item that you will receive. A Boxes make great gifts, too!

Here is what you will find in your Power of Pink A Box:

A Boxes are just one exciting reason to begin your business now. The Avon opportunity gets better and better, and my next post will announce a MAJOR perk if you begin your Avon business now. Here's a hint: There's a rebate on the business kit involved. Stay tuned!

The A Box!

I just realized that I have not yet written about the Avon A Boxes. They were introduced a few campaigns ago and will continue to be available until the end of the year. There's a new A Box for each campaign, each one is only $10 with a $40 purchase from the regular brochure, and they are available through me or through my online store. Here's what you will find in the A Box for Campaign 20:

Each A Box has a theme and this one is "The Best of Beauty" because the Campaign 20 brochure features some of our top selling beauty products at special prices. In this kit you will find Anew Power Serum in a sample size. The Power Serum boosts the work of your moisturizer and has been very popular since it's introduction. 

You'll also find the top selling shade of Glimmersticks Eye Liner - no sharpener needed....

...and our most popular Anew Skin Care product line - Ultimate - in the day and night creams. Each is a two week supply that is perfect for travel. 

The fifth item in the box is a lipstick in a shade that has been a customer favorite for many years. You can bet that Cherry Jubilee will not be discontinued!

What do you think? Are A Boxes not the best Avon deal ever? Would you like to be able to share the A Boxes with your own customers? There will be 6 more of them to come, so get your own Avon business started today so you can share in the excitement and the sales! We are only a couple of campaigns away from starting to sell our holiday collection items and people will be ready to shop with you for Christmas gifts, so don't delay - start today!!
