Campaign 3, 2020, Customer Reminder & Best Buys!


I hope that each of you are surviving the messy day with no wind damage or flooding. We have the storm shelter open just outside the door, so we can make a run for it if the need arises. I'm thinking the worst is behind us now, though. 

First of all, here is my special offer for this campaign only. There are some of you who only order one or two favorite Avon items and you haven't tried any of the others. In order to encourage you to try something new, I am allowing you to order one core brochure item (that means any personal care item that can be used up, but not items like clothes or shoes) at my cost, which is a 40% discount. The one stipulation is that it MUST be an item you have not tried before! When you place your order, just tell me which item you want at the 40% discount and it will be yours. The 90 day money back guarantee still applies, of course.

You can also view the online brochure here. Below are some of the best buys I spotted in C3:
  • Pg. 24, A Limited Edition Honey Blossom Gift Set - Eau de Parfum, Travel Spray, and Rose Gold Makeup Bag - all 3 for $27.  (If the bag is not important to you, get the Eau de Parum & Travel Spray for $23 on pg. 95.)
  • Pg. 26-28, Any 2 of the Ultimate and Platinum skin care items featured for $46. Individual sale prices are usually $23.99, so this is a good deal.
  • Pg. 31, The Ultimate & Platinum Kits are $55 each with a free matching cleanser. That makes this a best buy if you are use all the products or are ready to give them a try.
  • Pg. 44, Anew Clinical Eye Lift is only $21.99!
  • Pg. 54, The Basics - Dramatic Firming Cream, Banishing Cream, and Nurtura - are any 3 for $13.
  • Pg. 63, Glimmersticks are any 3 for $10.
  • Pg. 97, The Limited Edition Mesmerize Sports Car Decanter Cologne is now the ridiculously low price of only $8.99!! Get it before it is gone!
  • Pg. 131, All Foot Works products are on sale.
  • Pg. 134-135, Lip Balms are $1.29 and Full-Size Hand Creams are $2.50.
  • Pg. 206-207, NEW from Avon x The Face Shop - The Solution Mask for only $2.50. Choose from Firming, Nourishing, and Pore Care
  • Pg. 208, NEW from Avon x The Face Shop - Root Touch-Up, an instant way to cover up your grey roots, available in 4 shades and only $15 each.
  • Pg. 210, The Gold Standard A Box is $10 with a $40 purchase and includes a Full-Size Eye Lift Pro along with Try-It Sizes of Anew Ultimate Day Cream and Night Cream - a $70 value!

First Cloud Climbers Newsletter for 2020!

Happy New Year!

I hope that your year is off to as great  start. We were able to do all the usual traditional celebrating that we do and have a few extra fun times with family and friends as well. I'm quite thankful for my cell phone that allows me to participate in activities, perhaps even short out of town trips, while still staying connected and available for my customers and all of you. The hubby and I will be doing a bit more of those during basketball season, as he loves to support friends and family members who play his favorite sport.

👄HOT TIP: Let all of your customers who have ordered at your online store for direct delivery from Avon in the past know that they only have 5 more days to take advantage of free shipping on a $25 order. I've notified mine and I've gotten several orders since then. I've set a team goal to have the Top 10 in Sales for C2 over $200 each and online orders can definitely help us reach that goal!

Speaking of direct delivery orders, here are the Top 5 in Sales for 2019. These numbers include orders placed by the Cloud Climbers themselves, because the report does not show customer orders only and I know that some of us place orders to be shipped to our customers as well as ordering for ourselves at our online stores. 

Top 5 in Online Orders for 2019
  1. Sandra Moore HS   $6,814  (About 95% of this figure consists of orders placed by customers.*)
  2. Rene Parker PC   $1,914
  3. Amy Budisalich   $1,006
  4. Anna Kinsaul   $749
  5. Leslie Clendenon   $641
It will be interesting to see how our online orders go for 2020 with the change in shipping costs as of January 7 and with us bearing $8 of the cost on orders over $60. I know that I will most likely be doing less ordering at my online store, but I wonder if my customers will? It remains to be seen! 

Congratulations to those who titled in 2019:  Honor Society - Myself -- Presidents Club Leslie ClendenonMargo PrytzRene Parker. -- Premier - Amy Layne, Gladys Faulk, Phyllis SmithMy Goal for 2020: 6 of us at PC Level or above!

It's time for me to get ready to head back out into the rain for another activity, so I shall close and get this sent. Always remember that I am praying for you and your business. Let me know if you would like for me to pray about specific things in your business or your general life and I'll be happy to do so.

May God bless you in 2020!
