Slow Going

Last Thursday my Avon order came in.  I love sorting out everyone's orders and packing their bags with new brochures and samples!  Unpacking the box makes a huge mess in the living room and making up door hangers with samples takes hours.  It's so much fun!
Yesterday we went for a walk and Matthew helped me hang bags on doors.  This is the first time I'm really trying to reach out to strangers to boost my business, and I'm really hoping it works.  I need it to work!

This will be my first campaign without the newbie commission boost, so unless I land more sales, I'm afraid I won't be able to even afford being a rep.  So far my orders have all come from friends, family, and coworkers, and I really appreciate their business but I need more.  I would hate to give up on something that I enjoy so much!

I'm going to try to slip Avon into a few more tweets during the week, and I'm thinking about making a page on Facebook also.  I'm definitely NOT going to start an Avon only blog!  I have a lot of time on my hands, but I don't have *that* much time!  It's a little frustrating because the only thing I've gotten for my efforts on the web have been scams.  Good thing I'm a smart little cookie :D

If any of you wonderful readers would like to host an eParty on your blog, I'd love to set one up.  Hostesses get a discount on their personal orders equivalent to my rep discount!  Now is a good time because Avon has all of their adorable Halloween decor available.  If anyone's interested, let me know!  And if you'd like to visit my Avon store and register as a customer you'll get an email once every two weeks when the new campaign starts.  That's it!  I promise your inbox won't get flooded!

Now before I start flat out begging for customers...

Have a good weekend everyone, see you on Monday!


  1. Good luck with your Avon venture! My grandma sold it for yeeeaaars! I just said in my newest blog post that this is the type of thing I haven't ever/won't ever do! Lol But I know some people are great at it. :-) So again, good luck!!!

  2. Thanks! I don't know if I'm good at it or not yet, all I know is that for now it's still fun!


If you leave me a comment, I'll be your best friend. <3
