Avon Trial Sizes Make Great Gifts!

I'm making my Christmas list for trial sizes to give out to potential customer. I have neighbors that I have never met. What better way to meet them than to knock on their door and give them a free gift of trial sizes of cleansers, creams, deodorants and other goodies? My adopted mom is a woman of color, so I am going to get her a lipstick in the Avon Color section, and maybe she will also want to order from me. She wears nail polish also.. so I will gift her with the lipstick, Candid trial size deodorant, and nail polish. I will buy my adopted brother (her son) some Black Suede deodorant, and my other adopted brother I will gift him with Wild Country deodorant. I want to start giving free gifts like my friend "Gifts" does to get customers. I'm really getting excited about this. I don't have that many neighbors on my street.. but I do have a few. One I won't go into because they have a posted sign and a mean looking bull dog chained up that barks whenever anyone walks by that yard.. so I won't go in there. I know when new business open up they often have free samples.. so that is what I am going to do with all of the free samples I can get my hands on. People who order $30 or more can get free shipping too.. they just need to put the code in that is given to them on the website. I probably should buy a stamp that has my name, title, phone number and website.. then I can stamp my books and all my info will be there. Any thoughts? Anything I'm missing?

Our friend Gifts does stuff like this all the time. I'm going to do it too so that I can build a good client base.

Hi Kalyni2011! I'm not sure what shipping will cost me. I am buying this stuff to get potential customers... but ... If you will send me your full name and address, I will send you some, if my cost isn't too much. Do you have Avon in India? I know some countries don't have Avon reps. If you have Avon in India, you should buy from a representative there.

Giving samples makes customers. Giving gifts is a good way to make friends and positive connections. I like your idea about labels better than the idea of a rubber stamp. I was always a sloppy stamper and I think the labels will look better. Avon is all about personal service and style, I think you will do well. Let us know how this goes for you.

Thanks Gerty! I think the idea for labels is better too.. I'll be going over to Staples at the first part of the next month when I get paid. Each month I will be stocking up on sale items of 99 cents or lower.. and trial sizes that are usually around 89 cents or so... I want to keep buying brochures, because that is my store... and then the people can go to my website and order. I won't be doing the orders myself because I don't get out that much.
