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!


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:

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 to see those.

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!


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


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.
