Greetings, Cloud Climbers!
Wow! A lot of us had direct delivery orders at our online stores in C21. Isn't it exciting to know you are making money just by sharing your online store link? Be sure to share it often and at different times on the day on social media and include it on all brochures that you deliver to your customers. Some of the people who order at my online store live within two miles of me and just prefer that method of shopping. I still deliver brochures to the ones who live close by, at least every third campaign, to encourage them to keep shopping. I also send personal email "Thank You" notes to them at times so they hear from me directly in addition to the stock email of thanks they receive from Avon on my behalf. The personal touch matters! Those with direct delivery orders for C21 are: Sandra Moore, Judy Ashworth, Deanna Buswell, Cassandra Mae Young, Alison Hogan, Yvonne Lassiter, Margaret McCrary, April Moore, Joanne Bradford, Rene Parker, Danielle Reneau, Brenda Taylor, and Susanne Walters. The top five people in direct delivery sales so far this year: Sandra Moore ($3,799.65), Rene Parker ($575.47), Brittney Monti ($569.21), Alison Hogan ($461.18), and Joanne Bradford ($447.96).

Sales are clearly picking up as we head into the Christmas selling season. Or could it be that they are higher because we are already doing our own Christmas shopping with Avon? I'm already buying helper gifts and I'm adding to my stash of gifts for weddings from some of the Avon Living items. I've ordered the sets of holiday hand creams and lip balms because it is my tradition to take a basket of mini hand creams and lip balms to family gatherings, along with our calendars, and everyone looks forward to picking from my basket. Even some of the guys pick out hand creams and lip balms! Don't forget about teacher gifts if you have children, because we have lots of items that are ideal for that purpose.
Have you chosen the date you will use for flexible ordering? I found out that Cassandra Young is the only one currently on our team who will not be participating in flexible ordering, so the rest of you should be putting some thought into it and choosing your dates. Picking a date early in the campaign is helpful for making sure items that are in high demand do not run out, but picking a later date could work best if you sell to people who procrastinate and/or need to wait until payday to order. Being able to choose your date is a good thing, but please try to be as consistent as you can be once you choose a date, and then be sure to give your regular customers plenty of notice about the change, especially if you are changing it to an earlier time.
Congratulations go to Deanna Buswell for earning a $50 Award in the KickStart Program! I know Deanna will put that money to good use. Also, congratulations to Deanna for adding a new team member, Theresa Leonard, just this week. I also want to welcome Candra Simmons of Chattsworth, GA, Patricia Echols of Vinement, AL, and Tammy Sears of Dickson, TN. Theresa, Candra, Patricia, and Tammy, we are happy to have you as a Cloud Climbers and I pray this is just the start of very successful businesses for all of you.
I hope that I will see a few of you at the Drive Like a Boss Workshop this Saturday in Huntsville. If you have not registered, please do so today, because there is only room for about 120 people and I heard that 100 have already registered. Of course, a few of those may not show up, so if you don't get to register but find that you can come, please do! It has been reported to me by a reliable source that these events are a lot of fun.
A few of you are now doing setups at events, which is one way to get contacts for potential team members and customers while selling a bit of Avon stock. I enjoy these events because I like interacting with the public and networking with other vendors. Deanna Buswell recently participated in two events and I was able to loan her some of my table coverings and my canopy. If you are doing events in the Huntsville area (I believe Donna Langford is planning one soon), talk to me to see if there are ways I can help you.
It's time to close this newsletter out now so that I can get it to you today. Let me know in what ways I can help you to build your business and I will do my best.
