Ding Dong

I’ve been asked many times what being an Avon Rep involves so I thought I’d share my experience with you.

Avon Reps are traditionally known for calling at peoples doors as the old advert goes “ding dong.”  Showing the latest Avon brochure to friends and family is the bread and butter for Avon Reps.

Avon, unlike some other Direct Selling Companies allocate “territory” so each rep has their own patch of houses to show their brochures to and collect orders.

There are 18 brochures for Reps to sell from during the year, for those not great at maths that’s a new book every three weeks with a couple of two week campaigns over Christmas each year.

Once the Avon Rep has collected their orders in they are placed online, unlike a few years ago when everything was paperimage based and posted through another reps door for the Area Manager to collect.  With online ordering the Rep can input several orders fairly quickly.

The products are then delivered to the Rep in a big box (or boxes!) and they work out which customer has ordered what.  I always have a brochure handy incase I’m unsure of the customers handwriting.

Once the Rep has “bagged up” all of their orders they can deliver to their customers and collect payment from them.  Avon allow the Rep two weeks to collect in the payments, meaning no upfront cost to the Avon Rep.  The difference between the amount the Rep needs to pay Avon and the amount they have collected from their customers is the Reps commission – Avon even calculate it for us on our invoice.

If a customer wants to return anything under Avon’s 28 day no quibble guarantee we just print out a returns form and hand the item back to the delivery driver when he delivers the next order.

Avon have recently launched online selling allowing the Avon Rep to sell UK wide, with the customer making payment directly to Avon and delivery coming straight from Avon’s head office this gives comfort to the customer that they will get their products directly and the flexibility to get that lippy whenever they want it.  The Avon Rep gets the benefit of an extra customer whilst still earning their commission.  Visit my online shop at http://www.avon.uk.com/store/mymakeup

Home hair cut?

Anyone out there desperately needing a hair cut? I know it’s not the norm but I’m not a big fan of getting my hair cut so I leave it as long as possible before heading to the hairdresser. I didn’t time it very well!

One thing I can do at home though, is a colour. With more time on mg hands while we’re stuck at home there’s no reason why I can’t spend the time to do a little patch test then get myself to the bathroom and put a colour on my hair.

I’m at the stage where I’m starting to get enough grey streaks of hair to make it noticeable and with more and more zoom conference calls it means I can be seen – damn this technology that allowed us to see each other whilst we isolate lol.

Luckily the Avon hair dye is currently half price at just £3.50, so I can’t go wrong, hopefully!

Stock up on your shade at http://www.avon.uk.com/store/freedelivery

Postage is free when you spend £15 or just £2.50 for orders under £15 so if you need any other essentials (or a little treat) they can be delivered contactless to your door.

Who doesn’t need a pick me up right now?

I know after a couple of weeks indoors, online shopping is a godsend. Looking at the supermarket queues, if I can get my toiletries online- and we’re using a lot more hand soap and even more shower gel, it’s one less trip to a shop I need to make as I really can’t face another long queue.

A little free gift whilst I stock up on my essentials is just what I need. I need to check who has a birthday coming up as well so I can get some nice giftable bits I can post out.

What strange times we are living in

I hope your all keeping safe and well.

I’ve never known anything like the time we’re living in at the moment. It’s all a bit surreal.

I mean I work from home, so I’m used to being home a lot but I do normally get out and about, doing the school run twice a day, getting in the fresh air and talking to different people – none of which we can do now.

I’m lucky I’m still able to run the part of my business where I sell online and I’m really greatful for those of you who have supported me by shopping with me digitally or sharing the link to my online shop. Each and every sale really counts and makes a difference to our little family, plus it puts a little smile on my face ever time I see an email in my inbox to say I have a new order.

Avon have measures in place so all orders can be delivered contactless and they have lots of deliveries into the warehouse to keep up supplies of the essentials such as your hand soap, shower gel and shampoo’s, all with shift changes to make sure the best social distancing possible could be implemented.

Plus Avon are working on a hand gel, so make sure you register as a customer on my online Avon shop so you are notified as soon as it becomes available.

If you need any Avon goodies, please support me by shopping online, with free delivery when you spend £15 at: http://www.avon.uk.com/store/mymakeup

Look after the hands who look after us

Please share this!

Can you help me look after the hands that will be looking after us? Let us give back to our amazing NHS staff who are all working so hard for us right now!

I am asking you if you would please sponsor a hand cream or hand soap for just £1 – their hands will be extra sore with all the additional washing and sanitising.

For every 4 sponsored, I will add an extra one from my commission so I will NOT be making any money personally from this. Our hand creams and soaps are just £1 each at the moment so a £4 sponsor would get 5 hand creams or 5 hand soaps.

If you would like to take part, please just send your payment by friends/trusted seller PayPal payment to laura_rolston@yahoo.co.uk and I will do the rest.

In a world where you can be anything, be kind! Without the NHS we would be in a really sorry state right now ~ it’s time to give back! ❤️

Making a difference together

I’m proud to say I’m an Avon Rep at this moment, whilst we are in unprecedented times Avon Reps are pulling together, checking in on some of their more vulnerable customers as well as supplying some of those every day essentials, shower gels, deodorants, hand soaps, through their online shops.

Getting a few essentials online really does the works of good for our mental health and the less we need to go outside for the better. And by shopping with your Avon Rep your also supporting that little self employed business.

I’m also pleased to tell you that from next month we will also have a new hand gel product available and all profits made from these will be given to Refuge, the Domestic violence charity who unfortunately are expecting to see an increase in demand during these difficult times.

Avon will also be sending care packages to the amazing NHS staff at Northampton and Kettering General Hospitals – thank you to each and every one of you, you are all doing such a great job fighting this virus on the front line.

Thank you from your Avon Rep

I hope your all staying safe and enjoying the extra time with your family.

I just wanted to thank you for supporting me as a small business, it really is appreciated at these tough times.

We’re enjoying home schooling and getting some jobs around the house done while we have this extra time and having my little one at home, it’s unusual to have so much family time so we’re definitely going to make the most of it.

Stay safe and see you on the other side 🙂
