10 Ways to Promote yourself!

Hey guys okay for today I'm offering 10 ways to advertise your Avon/Tiny Tillia/Mary Kay/etc business! Of course you know I love Avon/Tiny Tillia & I can't say anything about the Mary Kay PRODUCTS but I will try not to focus on only Avon. Though I might refer to only Avon, you can use these tips for almost any direct sales company! Okay.....go!

#1. Take a small zip close baggie (snack sizes work well) and include the following in it:

Your Business Card, mini flyer (business opportunity from Avon, meet mark. from mark., customizable flyer with a little bit of info about you & the company), a piece of candy such as hard candy or a lollipop, mini flyer of current host specials, discount coupon (optional), samples, etc.

Hand these out to the bank tellers, retail cashiers, at your kids sport events, every where you go!

#2. Be creative when you leave tips for Hotel Maids, Waitresses, Waiters, Hair Dressers, etc. Don't just hand them your business card, make it memorable!

You can also buy cute little beaded change purses at your local dollar discount store!

#3. Print out flyers with your contact info (not your personal address!), your website address, phone number & email address along with any current specials you are offering.

Then contact local area mobile home park offices, apartment complex rental offices, housing developements etc and ask them if you can leave fliers in their office or hang on their tennants doors. Give the office employees a free gift or discount on their personal orders.

#4. Contact local area bridal supply stores, bridal gown stores, caterers, tux rental centers, wedding dj's etc. Ask them if you can leave your business cards & fliers there. Offer a bridal gift registry and/or special for brides & their bridal party!

Offer store owners a free gift or a personal discount for helping you spread the word about your business.

#5. Daycare Centers! They are excellent to contact and leave business cards and/or fliers at! Especially if you are doing Tiny Tillia this is a great place!

#6. Alot of churches hold a Spring and Fall Fest! Contact them about getting a table or a booth. Alot of times this will cost you under $15.00 for a space! A great idea is to host a raffle and have cards where they can enter their information to win. They get a great gift, and you get a possible customer!

Make sure you take products with you along with fliers, plenty of catalogs, business cards, samples, etc.

#7. Join your local area chamber of commerce! They are always holding local business events that you can participate in.

#8. College Campuses! Dorms & Housing Students are always looking to spend money! Alot of college students are also looking for an extra income so be sure to tell them about your business opportunity if you are recruiting!

Drop off fliers and business cards to the College Student Center! They usually have bulletin boards, tables and other things where you can leave your information at for FREE!

#9. Contact your local area Welcome Wagon or Welcome to the Neighborhood Group! Ask them about you leaving mini catalogs, fliers, business cards, discount coupons, freebie mini gifts, etc with them.

They are always looking for additional items to place in their Welcome Bags!

#10. Contact your local area hospitals and ask for Human Resources Dept. The Majority of hospitals hand out New Mommy Diaper Bags filled with products, samples and other stuff for New Moms who just had a baby!

There you go 10 ways to market your Avon! Try this and let me know how it goes!
