About the Trainer, Emily Seagren

Emily Seagren has been an Avon Representative since January 2008. She sells at the President’s Council level (over $112,000 annually), owns a Licensed Avon Beauty Center in Rockford, Illinois (Avon Store Perryville), and is an Executive Unit Leader with almost 200 Avon Representative team members in over 30 states nationwide. Emily sold over $46,000 of Avon products online and recruited 183 team members in 2014 as a result of her online marketing efforts. In 2014, her nationwide team of reps, Avon Team Momentum, sold over $513,600 in Avon products.

In 2015, Emily was awarded the prestigious award of Avon Woman of Enterprise. The Avon Woman of Enterprise award is presented to the Avon Representative who not only is leading and growing a successful Avon business, but does so while being a role model for other Representatives through her embodiment of the Avon Values of Belief, Integrity, Respect, Trust and Humility. Among the many North America Avon business owners, Avon selects only one Representative to receive this annual award.

Emily has earned all expense-paid trips to Hawaii, Punta Cana, Cancun, Puerto Rico, Hollywood, San Diego, Las Vegas, New York, Orlando, a cruise to the Bahamas, and a cruise to Alaska. In July 2014, Emily had brain surgery to remove a benign tumor. She was especially grateful at this time that she had a built a big Avon business that produces when she cannot work. Her goal is to reach Senior Executive Unit Leader and Inner Circle (over $220,000 annually) by the end of the 2016 cycle. She provides free marketing tips and training to Avon Reps across the country through blog posts and videos listed at www.makeupmarketingonline.com/training and www.makeupmarketers.com.

How to Sell More Avon

Be Absolutely Awesome with Avon’s President’s Recognition Program!

One of the best parts about selling Avon is the business is completely flexible. Some top sellers get there by having helpers and some get there by building huge customer bases. When you sell Avon, you can do fundraisers, home parties, sell door-to-door, sell Avon online, set up at events, go tossing, and more. One thing is for sure, at a minimum, your goal should be to reach President’s Club. You will make the most money selling Avon when you reach President’s Club or higher each year. The Avon selling cycle now goes from campaign 1 – campaign 26 each year. The sales levels are based on award sales received during the annual cycle.

Avon Sales Levels for 2015

  • Level 1 – President’s Club: $10,000
  • Level 2 – Honor Society: $20,000
  • Level 3 – Rose Circle: $35,000
  • Level 4 – David H. McConnell Club: $65,000
  • Level 5 – President’s Council: $110,000
  • Level 6 – Inner Circle: $220,000

How much Money can you make Selling Avon?

Please see the 2015 Avon commission chart below. Avon’s commission chart is based on a “the more you sell, the more you earn” philosophy. Keep in mind that although online sales are not based on an earnings chart, those award sales from your online business can bump you up into the next earnings level for your traditional order. When you sell Avon, you collect the total amount due from your customer including the product price from the book, sales tax, and customer order charge. When you submit your order to Avon, the company charges you for the cost of the product and for the sales tax you collected. The amount left over after paying Avon is your profit. To earn a decent profit from your Avon business, I would recommend setting a goal to sell at the 40% earnings level every campaign. With a total of $500 in orders, that would give you a profit of $200 each campaign to re-invest in your business or to add to your family’s monthly income.

Avon Selling Quick Tips

  1. Wear Avon products. This may be an obvious tip but I didn’t do it myself for about my first year selling. When you try and use the products yourself, it will be easier to relate to customers and answer customer questions. Don’t go overboard on your spending but make it a goal to try something new at least once a month. If you can’t afford the products yourself, use your Avon website to see how customers have reviewed the product.
  2. Buy samples and / or demos. It is hard to sell beauty without having some sort of samples or demos on hand. Customers want to see, feel, and smell products before they buy. Take advantage of sample packs in the What’s New books. Be sure to buy samples of new skincare or fragrance before they debut in the catalog. The more your customers try, the more they will buy.
  3. Try different methods of selling Avon. There are plenty of ways to sell Avon and we are all going to get different results based on our personalities and how we present to customers. Keep trying new ways of selling to figure out which methods will add to your success.
  4. Bring Avon catalogs with you everywhere you go. Carry 3 – 5 with you each day and ask people you run into if they’d like one. You’d be surprised how many people wish they had a good Avon lady and will welcome the opportunity to take a book.
  5. Invest in catalogs and do your homework. Look ahead at the campaigns to see where the best sales are, which products are new, and what your hot sellers will be for that specific campaign. The more you know about the book, the better you will be able to sell it to your customers. Use little sticky notes to mark pages of good deals, scented pages, or new products.
  6. Communicate with your customer on their terms. Ask your customer how often they would like you to follow up and their preferred method of contact.
  7. Give good customer service. Avon products are great quality. Most complaints I hear about Avon are about the customer’s last representative…how they never delivered their products on time or they couldn’t get in touch with them, or how they stopped selling. There are plenty of customers out there to service…you just need to get your name out there and give great customer service.
  8. Offer free gifts with big purchases or discounts for first-time customers. Use these offers as door openers to build relationships and gain new customers. Make yourself stand out from other Avon Reps.
  9. Do your best to reach President’s Club. How would you like a guaranteed 40% commission on all full earnings items in your orders for a whole year? Well, that’s what you get when you make President’s Club along with other great benefits. Plan out each campaign, take advantage of double and triple dollar offers, and look for organizations willing to do fundraisers. Do whatever it takes to make President’s Club…you’ll be glad you did.
  10. If you are a shy Avon Representative, use the catalog as a tool to open the door to conversations with people you encounter. Try saying something like, “How would you like an Avon brochure?” with a smile on your face. The more you step out of your comfort zone, the braver you will become in uncomfortable situations.

Check back to this page often for updates! Depending on how much time you have to dedicate to your Avon business, try implementing 1 – 3 new sales or recruiting activities per week.

Marketing Avon Online

Getting website traffic to your Avon website is only half the battle. How do you turn website visitors into online customers and recruits? We all know having a lot of website traffic is a good thing but it doesn’t help you make any more money unless those visitors are placing orders or signing up on your team. There are a few things you can do to encourage those who are browsing your website to take action and place an online order or sign up to become an Avon Representative on your team.

Emily’s Avon Marketing Tips to Increase Sales and Recruits Online

So you’ve installed StatCounter or Google Analytics to track your Avon website visitor traffic but you still aren’t getting online orders or new team members. It can be frustrating but don’t give up! Celebrate your little accomplishments and look back at how far you’ve come over time. Be proud of your progress and keep moving forward by increasing your sales and building your team. Check out these quick tips on boosting your conversion rates:

  • Avon eStore Widgets – Customize your eStore so you have both the eNewsletter sign up widget and “Believe in your Business” widget on your home page. Both of these widgets encourage browsers to submit their contact information so you can continuously market to them as either a customer or potential recruit. Select these widgets in your web office – under eStore – edit eStore.
  • Avon Survey Cards – Use Avon survey cards to collect contact information from anyone you talk to about your Avon business. These are great tools to use especially when working at events, job fairs, or setting up tables. Try offering a giveaway (ex: a Naturals bundle) and use the survey cards as their raffle entries. Even if those who fill out their information do not become your customer or rep that day…it doesn’t mean they won’t ever want to in the future. This way you have their information so you can follow up with them at a later date. With permission, you may want to add them to your web office (make sure your Automated Email Program is turned on) or send them a catalog (check out Campaign Mailer or Consultant Depot if you don’t have time to mail or deliver the books yourself) to continue marketing to them after the event or meeting. Here is an example of the customer survey card: Avon Customer Survey Card
  • Automated Email Program – Do not be scared of turning on your Automated Email Program! I recommend turning on both the promotional and campaign emails. If you have not done this yet and are still hesitant, at least turn on the campaign emails…you will not regret it. The automation of Avon’s email marketing program will definitely give your online sales a boost with its consistency and special promotions offered in the professionally designed emails. If some customers complain about too many emails, they can either unsubscribe themselves or you can do it for them and move on. Turn on your Automated Email Program in your web office under eStore – personalization tool – customer preferences – automated email programs.
  • Customize your eStore – One way to boost your placement in the search engines like Google and Yahoo is to consistently have fresh content and update your information often. Since our eStores switch to a new campaign every other week just like the Avon catalog, try customizing your home page with an image, hyperlinks, and helpful information (like a coupon code, campaign dates, and how to become an Avon Rep on your team). Watch this YouTube video on how to customize your Avon website: Sell More Avon Online by Customizing your Website
  • Use RepId Specific Hyperlinks on Blog Posts and Social Media – Be careful which links you share on the Internet to try to find new customers. Use the links and images via the social media share buttons on product pages or directly from the Social Media Center on yourAvon.com. This will ensure visitors are going to your personal Avon website, not the generic Avon.com where they shop without a preferred representative.
  • Using the Right Link for Recruiting Avon Representatives Online – Whenever you promote the Avon opportunity whether it’s on paper or online, there are different ways to tell someone how to sign up. Did you know every Avon Representative has an opportunity page whether they have signed up their first recruit or not? That means you have a landing page you can send people to who are interested in learning more about becoming an Avon Representative that is specific to your Avon website. Here is my rule of thumb for which link to use and when: 1) to promote the opportunity on paper (marketing flyers, business cards, labels, etc.) I use these instructions: go to www.startavon.com and use reference code: ESEAGREN (your reference code is the the part after www.youravon.com/ – the last part of your Avon website URL), 2) to market the opportunity on social media, in a blog post, or anywhere else online where they may want to click to get more info, I send them to http://eseagren.avonrepresentative.com/opportunity (this page will tell them more about becoming an Avon rep and they can submit their information if they would like to learn even more), and 3) finally if I’m sending the link to someone I know is ready to sign up, I use this format: http://eseagren.avonrepresentative.com/opportunity/start (this lead capture page will have your reference code pre-filled and will allow the visitor to submit their information and complete the online appointment if they are ready).

Avon What’s New 10 2015 Demo Book

Avon What’s New brochures also known as Avon demo books contain products for Avon Representatives to purchase prior to when the campaign officially starts in the Avon catalog. It is a chance for current Avon Reps to order new products, sales tools, and samples at discounted prices before the start of the campaign for Avon customers. The R price is for representatives and the PRP price is the price for Avon Representatives who are at President’s Club sales level or higher. Your sales level determines the quantity you can order of each product unless the item says otherwise (for ex: no demo limit). You can order demos for the current campaign and the upcoming 2 campaigns. You can order out of the Avon What’s New Campaign 10 2015 brochure in Avon Campaign 8 2015, Avon Campaign 9 2015, Avon Campaign 10 2015, and Avon Campaign 11 2015.

Demos give customers the chance to experience the scent of a fragrance, the shade of a lipstick, or the feel of a moisturizer – before they buy. Order demos and samples every campaign to support brochure offers and you’ll see that demos are worth the investment. Depending on your Avon sales level, see the demo limits below:

How to Sell Avon Online Successfully with Blogs

Sell Avon Online Successfully - Blogs

Blogs have played a big part in my success in selling Avon online. With almost 225,000 unique visitors to my Makeup Marketing Online website in 2014, my blog was by far the biggest referral source to my personal Avon website. As a result, I sold almost $46,900 in Avon products online and signed up 183 new team members through recruiting online in 2014 alone. If you want to sell Avon online and don’t have a blog yet, I suggest you start one! This page will guide you through my advice for starting your own Avon blog and marketing your posts to sell more Avon online and learn how to recruit new Avon Representatives online. As always, be sure to read your Avon Policies and Procedures guide to make sure your marketing activities are within Avon’s acceptable marketing guidelines.

Emily’s Avon Online Sales Stats 2009 – 2014

As you can see, the number of blog posts I created each year had a direct effect on how many website visitors browsed my website and how much revenue I produced in online sales. If you have never blogged before, you may want to start with trying to publish 1 – 2 new blog posts per week depending on how much time you have to dedicate to your online marketing. The longer you write and the more experienced you get at writing blog posts, the easier it will become to come up with topics and create a new post.

  • 2008 – 0 blog posts – wasn’t yet tracking visitors – $2,680 Avon online sales
  • 2009 – 16 blog posts – 7,354 unique website visitors – $4,720 Avon online sales
  • 2010 – 0 blog posts – 6,296 unique website visitors – $3,305 Avon online sales
  • 2011 – 7 blog posts – 3,572 unique website visitors – $4,035 Avon online sales
  • 2012 – 103 blog posts – 49,691 unique website visitors – $9,420 Avon online sales
  • 2013 – 50 blog posts – 132,424 unique website visitors – $13,815 Avon online sales
  • 2014  242 blog posts – 435,382 unique website visitors – $46,908 Avon online sales and 183 online appointments

*Unique website visitors includes those who visited Makeup Marketing Online or my personal Avon website.

Basics of Writing a Blog – How to Write an Avon Blog

1. Set up a Blog – start by creating a couple of blog posts on the yourAvon.com blog to get the feel for writing. Then look into a blog outside of the Avon website if you are going to be consistent about blogging like WordPressBlogger, or Weebly. If you’re not sure which blogging service to choose, do some research on the Internet or join some of the Avon Representative Networking Groups on Facebook to ask for advice there.

2. Pick a Topic – Don’t let writer’s block get the best of you. With Avon, there is always news to share whether it be a product launch, new sales, or the start of the next campaign. This is good news for us because we will never run out of writing material. What is the purpose of your blog post? Decide if you are trying to get more online sales or you want to recruit new team members. Then pick a topic on a product, promotion, the opportunity, or a team / tip post.

3. Do your Research – Once you decide what you want to write about, find out how customers are searching for your topic. I like to use the free Google Keyword Tool or Wordtracker. Type in your keyword to see how many people are searching and how they are searching for your topic. Another way to find out how people are searching for your topic is to do the search yourself on Google on your topic. At the bottom of the first page of results, there will be links listed under “Searches Related to…” Pick 1 – 3 keywords related to your topic to use in your post.

4. Be Informative – When creating blog posts, provide facts and useful information rather than just your opinion. Try to repeat your keyword(s) at least 3 times throughout the article but make sure your sentences are natural to read for readers to follow and not just created for search engine optimization.

5. Share on Social Media – Be sure to get in the habit of sharing your blog post URL on all of your social media profiles after you have published it. The whole purpose of creating the blog is to get more traffic to your website so be proud of your work and share it with the online world!

Emily’s 5 Different Types of Avon Blog Posts

1. Promotional: free shipping, discount offers, sales, campaigns

2. Products: new products, informative product posts, product reviews

3. Opportunity: the Avon selling opportunity, details on becoming an Avon rep, the benefits of selling Avon, how to sign up, FAQs

4. Avon Representative Tips: online marketing tips, sales tips, recruiting tips, and leadership tips

5. Team: newsletters, recognition, tips, ideas, incentives

Other ideas: industry news, how-to posts, beauty tips, personal reviews – If you are interested in building both the sales and leadership sides of your Avon business (which I highly recommend), try to alternate your posts so that some are geared toward finding new customers and some are focused on recruiting new team members.

How to Promote your Avon Blog Posts for Free on Social Media

With a Bachelor’s degree in marketing, 13 years work experience in marketing, almost 10 years in network marketing experience with 7 of those years being with Avon, I think I finally have a hold on what works for me with online marketing and social media. Keep in mind my techniques aren’t going to work for every Avon Representative so you need to keep trying different approaches and do what works best for you. When you figure out what works for you, it’s important to come up with a marketing routine / schedule that you repeat daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly depending on how much time you have to dedicate online. Be consistent, persistent, and keep going until you make it work if you are passionate about online marketing!

Since the majority of my website visitors come from my blog posts listed in search engines like Google, I know that I want to spend the majority of my time creating new content for my beauty blog. Another way customers and potential recruits come across my blog is through status updates I post on my social media profiles like Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google+, and Twitter. Once you have written a successful Avon blog post, you will want to share the link of that post on social media to get traffic to your website. Read the steps below and then watch the video for an online demonstration.How to Promote Avon Blog Posts on Social Media for Free

Emily Seagren’s 6 Marketing Steps for Promoting an Avon Blog Post Online

1. One of the first places I share my blog post is Facebook. I write a couple of sentences to entice followers to want to learn more and then include the link to the blog post. Depending on the type of blog post I have written, I will share the post to my Facebook business page and to my Facebook group. Every once in awhile I will share links on my personal Facebook profile but I like to talk more about Avon in an informal matter on my personal page.

2. I have Facebook automatically connected to Twitter so anything I post on Facebook is automatically “Tweeted.” You can connect your Facebook account to Twitter by going to: http://www.facebook.com/twitter.

3. I have also chosen the option on my WordPress blog to have new posts automatically shared on LinkedIn. Check with your blog provider to see if there are automated options to share new posts.

4. Since Pinterest is my third best source of referrals, I always make sure to pin any images from new blog posts on one or more of my Pinterest boards.

5. Last but not least for sharing on social media, I try to share all new blog post links to my Google+ profile.

6. The last step I take after publishing a blog post is to copy my own article and post it on my Avon blog. In order to get images in my posts on my Avon website, I copy my own articles on WordPress and then paste them into the blog using Internet Explorer.

Emily Seagren’s Marketing Tips for Blogging

  • If you are just starting a blog, make it a goal to post at least 1 new article per week.
  • Rotate the types of blog posts you create to attract a larger audience. For example: my blog posts can be about products, recruiting, promotions, recognition, and tips for Avon Representatives.
  • The more content and posts you write, the easier it will become for you to blog. Once it starts getting easier for you to blog, try to post more than 1 blog post per week.
  • Make your articles interesting and informative. Try to include images, answer questions your audience might be asking, and make your articles easy to read and follow.
  • Be sure you have share and like buttons for social media on each post so your readers can pass the information on to their followers.
  • When posting a blog link on social media, use 3 – 5 hashtags that categorize your post. Hashtags work on Facebook, Twitter, GooglePlus, Pinterest, and a few other social media sites.
  • It’s always a great idea to have a subscribe option on your blog so that your followers are notified when new content is posted.

How to Post the Current Avon Brochure on your Website

How do you post the current Avon catalog on your website? This is probably the most frequent question I get asked from Avon Representatives on how to sell Avon online. Here are step-by-step instructions on how to post Avon Campaign 5 2015 on your website.

If you have already followed the instructions on how to add the Avon brochure image to your website from me before, follow set A. instructions on how to update the image. If this is your first time adding the brochure image to your Avon website, follow set B. instructions. Please note: if you have already customized the main window widget on your website with a personal message but would like to try adding the current catalog image, you may want to save a copy of what you have there before making any changes so you have a back-up version to revert to in case you cannot get this to work.
Avon Key Campaign Dates

If you are going to put an image of the current brochure on your website, make sure you are able to commit your time to updating the image every time your website switches over to a new campaign (every other week). The online catalog on your eStore will automatically update but you will need to update the image on the home page at the start of every campaign. To find the schedule when your website changes over, go to yourAvon.com – my account – Key Campaign Dates. Ex: I am RPS 7 and my regular order is due every other Thursday and my website switches over to the new campaign 2 days later (on Saturday). I would let customers know they can shop Avon Campaign 4 2015 online 1/24 (Saturday) – 2/6 (Friday). My website will switch over to Avon Campaign 5 2015 on the 7th so I would let customers know they can shop Avon Campaign 5 2015 online 2/7 (Saturday) – 2/20 (Friday).
