hi friends Am a new Avon rep.Every campaign i keep on trying new ideas to boost my area sales in my terrotory.this time in each book i added a note telling peole to call me to help me make them understand the great offers included in this book.but not a single soul called.i distributed in as many as 60 homes.My husband had told me earlier that not one will even care to call.it happened that way.i was so disappointed.what went wrong?? why didnt they call??? What would you do if you get such a note in your books???will you call if yes why if not why??? Please amswer me all my friends before i distribute my new books in three days.Any Ideas to grapple their attention are welcomed.think what would induce you to buy???? Thanks a lot.

Avon has just given E-reps a place on facebook! Please take advantage of it and find people in your area and see if you can meet up on the weekends. Have a makeup party also. Valentines day items are out now. Decorate your house with the items. If you are close to your district manager like I am she will let you borrow things from the display that they have for the monthly meetings.

people do not usually call avon reps that they do not know, you have to go back to all those houses and tell them you left a book could you come and show them some of the wonderful new products avon now has to offer them and explain the great savings they will receive too.

my friend you have replied to all mu diss.as far as possible i shall try to answer to yours.Thanks for the recipe. Now first point, yes i too thought they may be a bit hesitant to call a unknkown Rep they are unaware of. i really feel so odd knocking doors and i feel afraid i dont want to be a SITTYING DUCK FOR Anyone you see!! Secondly i have baby to look after so whole day i am busy with her. then people arent that entertaining here u know. so many turns i have to make.i too am a handicapped person its very tiring i have put this time books in 70 houses going to all of them oh i will die of walking but yes i can do that in my neighbourhood on weekends when my hubbys there to look after the baby. i can try in my neighbourhood. i will definitely turn thin in this way!!! love imrose..
