Avon Reps: 11 Tips to Turning Facebook Posts into New Customers

Update: New Video Training as of 1/29/2019

Note: Original article is from 2016; therefore, SOME information may have changed since then.

Often, I’m either asked the question of how do I grow my business online or hear the complaint that no one is buying after several Facebook posts. Facebook has an algorithm. The more a person engages with your posts, the more likely Facebook will show them your posts. Facebook has recently included a survey that asks users how often they want to see posts from you. To avoid the “Really Don’t Want” selection, make sure your posts are engaging, informative and specific to your audience.

Here are 11 tips that I use to help grow my audience, keep them engaged and convert them to online customers:

  1. Select your audience – starting off, it’s fine to invite all of your friends to like your Facebook page. It’s a great way to let everyone know what you do and also once your page hits 50 “likes”, you’ll have access to Insights (described below). Once your page has the minimum likes, you’ll want to think about your target market to better engage with your potential customers. If you’re unsure, think about your specialty. What made you decide to sell Avon? Do you love a certain product? Do you love the makeup? Do you love the fragrances? It’s easier to talk about the products you love and also helps you understand the psyche of similar customers. Invite those with similar interests to “like” your page. If you don’t have many personal friends, join online communities that share similar interests. Share your posts in the group, interact with others and invite them to like your page or “friend” them.
  2. Be original – people buy from people they like. Let your personality show in your posts. There are a lot of Avon representatives and Avon (corporate) posting pictures to promote sales. Change it up. Even if you use an Avon-approved photo, change the wording. Be original. Be creative. No one wants to hear the same message over and over again. If you have the product, take a picture of it. It shows that you believe in the product (enough to buy it) and the photo is unique so they’ll only see it on your page. One of my  male customers has agreed to model his bottle of Luck for me 🙂 Can’t wait to post it.
  3. Call-to-action – let your viewers know what you intend for them to do but be creative. Don’t just say “buy from me.” Customers see/hear that everyday. Try to create some type of engagement such as “who’s ready to try it?” or “who else loves pink?”
  4. Always include your e-store address – don’t assume they know your website address. Include it on every post that includes a product. If you’re showcasing a specific product, direct customers to the URL for that specific product (instructions available if needed).
  5. Get your viewers involved – tell viewers to “like”, share, comment and tag others. This is free publicity, keeps the audience engaged and gets your posts seen by more users. Facebook usually shares on personal timelines when a “friend” has liked a post.
  6. Educate/enlighten – your page doesn’t have to be a 24/7 sales ad. No one wants to be constantly sold. Post an educating article or funny meme. Viewers will naturally share or like it if it’s entertaining, engaging or something different. Just recently, I posted a teenager that saved up $17k to open his own business. New viewers engaged with this post and now they’re being shown more of my posts.
  7. Hashtags – add 2-3 hash tags that tells users the content of the post. If you’re showing off lipstick, use #lipstick. Whenever anyone searches #lipstick or lipstick, your post may be seen (even if they’re not following you). Try it. Search in Facebook for #Avon, you’ll see official posts from Avon as well as from other representatives and customers.
  8. Share – depending on your fan base or how many people have “liked” your Facebook business page, your post may only be seen by a handful of people. Share your posts in Facebook groups (according to your interests) and on your personal Facebook page. When you share the post, it’s almost as if handing out your business card. At the top of the posts, it will say that you’ve shared it and allows the person to click on your business name. With that, they can go down your timeline to see more posts and even “like” your page.
  9. Keep the audience engaged – treat online customers just like face-to-face. If you have samples, offer them samples. Interact with your customers. Reach out to anyone that likes your post. Invite them to like your page and also see if you’d be able to offer some assistance.
  10. Insights – Facebook offers insights for your business page. With this, you can see the age group that engages most with your posts, how many people view your page, and so much more. Use this information and tailor your messages to your audience.
  11. Building fan base without Facebook – whether online or offline, tell your current customers to “like” your Facebook business page for new products, special offers and whatever else you’d like to throw in. Include it in your e-mail signature, on your brochures, across other social media accounts, on business cards and wherever else you can print it.

Above all, don’t become discouraged. It takes time to build a successful online business. Consistency is key. Share, share, share, share, share and just when you’re about to quit, share some more. With all the posts on Facebook, it’s easy for your message to become drowned. The key is to get your message in front of more people and when it becomes popular/relevant, Facebook will show it to others.

Here’s an example:

On Saturday, I received my Avon delivery with samples for Musk + Marine, Musk + Storm and Musk + Fire. I took a picture of the samples and asked who would like to try a new fragrance. I shared in a couple of groups. Immediately, gentlemen began to “like” the post. For the gentlemen that did not like my Facebook page, I “invited” them to like it so they can see more of my posts (picture shown). Not only did I invite them to like it but I also messaged them to collect their contact information. The contact information was then entered into my back office so they receive all the emails about special promotions. I’ll also mail them the samples. With this one posts, I gained 1 new customer and 37 new contacts! It’s no different than face-to-face. If you have samples, you’d offer it to your customers or even just threw in the bag; however, now you’re able to see who’s even looking for that type of sample.

 

 

 

Here’s another example:

In this post, I decided to create my own ad to showcase mark. Lipclick in Starlet. The url directs users to the product so they can purchase. They don’t have to try to find it on the site. I also used popular hashtags in the makeup community:

#MOTD – Makeup of the Day

#POTD – Product of the Day or Photo of the Day

#FOTD – Face of the Day

FacebookAd

Of course, these tips can be used on just about all social media accounts. So feel free to try them out!

How to Boost Your Business? With Other Businesses!

February 23, 2016

New to Avon? Or just looking for more ways to grow your business? Have you looked at other businesses?

Businesses are a great business for you! Think about it. Most businesses have some type of wait. Give patrons something to do while waiting. Then narrow in on what type of patrons you want. What type of patrons? Is that a serious question? Yes! And the serious answer is “paying patrons.”

Everyone is a potential customer so don’t overlook anyone or be too quick to judge. You’ll be surprised at least once in your Avon life by who wants to order from you. So why do I say “paying patrons?” In order to make your business grow, you need people that do not have a problem paying you — those that have disposable income.

Of course, everyone would love to save money so they’ll probably opt for Dollar Store, Wal-mart, etc; however, what do you have in businesses? People that can afford to spend more. What type of businesses should you seek?

– Beauty Shop

– Hair salon

– Nail salon

– Restaurants

– the list goes on!

Just think about it. With the four types of businesses mentioned above, you don’t absolutely NEED to go. You can do it yourself. It’s cheaper cooking your own meals than eating out (and you’ll probably be more satisfied). You definitely don’t NEED someone else to do your hair as long as you’re physically capable (probably only get one good day out of the new hairdo anyway). Nail salons? A no-brainer! And beauty shops/supplies? They’re going in to buy exactly what you sell! That is your target market.

How to get in to these types of businesses? The great thing about Avon is we’ve been around since 1886. That’s 130 years of greatness! EVERYONE knows us and is eager to meet one of our talented, beautiful representatives! Just go in and simply ask if you can leave a few of your brochures. You’d be surprised that many of these places already have magazine racks and places to leave local advertisements. Join the club! It really doesn’t require a long, drawn-out introduction. You can use something as simple as “Hi, I’m Natalie with Avon. I was wondering if I could leave a few brochures?” or “Hi, is it alright if I leave a few brochures?” This is awesome for shy representatives. It doesn’t require too much talking; absolutely no selling and people will come to you.

Still not sold? Why else would you focus on businesses:

– They always have people (i.e. staff)

– If they work there, that means they have a paycheck. If they have a paycheck, they have money!

– People are social creatures. If you have one to order from you, others will join in because either they trust the other person’s judgment (for skeptics) or they want to be part of the wonderful crowd. Have you seen the smiles of customers when their orders arrive?

– Makes deliveries easier going to one location to drop off 4-5 orders versus 4-5 places to drop off one order each

What you may be wondering:

– What about the Power of 3? Still go out and practice the power of three. By using a combination of methods, you will be sure to grow your Avon business. No one is going to buy from you if they don’t know you sell Avon or any product for that matter. You have to get your name out there. Don’t be afraid. You are backed by a company with 130 years of expertise. Use that to your advantage.

– But what about getting follow-up information? By leaving brochures at businesses, you may not be able to collect contact information unless you run into someone; HOWEVER, even while you’re at home, your books are still circulating. You can be sleep, doing laundry, at school, church, wherever when someone picks up a book and decides to call. Your books will continue to circulate. Let’s face it. We’re all humans. We can’t be at multiple places at the same time BUT your books help you. You can be at the beauty supply and local diner at the same time; thanks to your books 🙂
Any results? Of course! I’m one of the many representatives that began by leaving books at businesses. I continue to pick up new customers have campaign from a book left at a business but not only that, but the employees are my customers! I have restaurants where the entire staff orders from me! How awesome is that?

Remember, your books are your store. Always have books with you. And remember to have fun. Try to make it easier on yourself and not wear yourself down by jumping through loops and trying to do too much at once. We are all people. Set realistic goals and a plan to follow-through.
