2017 Kickstart for New Avon Representatives Tips

One of the many benefits of being an Avon representative is the amazing incentives that they continually offer to all representatives. What I personally love is the variety. Some incentives will help you earn money, while others will help you earn business tools or exclusive Avon products. Then there are those fun free trips! Avon offers incentives at any given point for sales & leadership to help motivate & encourage representatives to build & grow their business starting with Avon Kickstart Program.

What is Avon Kickstart Program?

header_this_is_boss_life_kickstart

The Avon Kickstart program is an incentive for new representatives in their first 7 campaigns (14 weeks). It is built to help new representatives to grow their business at a steady pace so at the end they will have a solid foundation with their customer base as well as in Avon Advanced Leadership.

How Avon Kickstart Program Works?

There are 3 components to the Avon Kickstart incentive- Sales Component, Recruiting Component & Kickstart Performance Bonus.  Each component has goals to meet in order to receive it’s individual bonus earnings.

chart-kickstart-program

Sales Component

The sales component with Avon Kickstart is created to help a new representative to steadily grow their customer base & campaigns sales so by the 7th campaign, he/she will be on the road to reaching President’s Club by their 7th campaign.

Recruiting Component

The recruiting component is all about sharing the opportunity so by the 7th campaign, the new representative will have the minimum requirements established to start receiving Avon Advanced Leadership checks at the Bronze Ambassador Level.

Kickstart Performance Bonus

The Kickstart Performance Bonus is a motivational bonus & a way to reward the new representative that completes the sales & recruiting component as recommended.

How to Complete Kickstart Sales Component

With the Kickstart program, each time a new representative meets their sales goal, he/she will receive 40% earnings on ALL SALES. When I say ALL SALES that includes brochure orders, online orders & fixed items.

How to Qualify for 40% Earnings

With your 1st campaign, you will automatically receive 40% earnings on any total order size.

For your 2nd-7th campaigns:

CAMPAIGN #

SALES GOAL # OF CUSTOMERS TOTAL EARNINGS
2 $150 5-6

$60

3

$200 6-8 $80
4 $250 8-10

$100

5

$300 10-12 $120
6 $350 12-14

$140

7

$400 14-16

$160

As you can see, each campaign you want to grow your business by $50 in sales. By adding 2-3 more customers placing $20-$25 orders each campaign, this is very a manageable number that is very plausible as you are starting your business.

TIP: Not every customer will order each campaign. Honestly, most customers won’t order every campaign. So getting into the routine of gaining new customers each campaign when you are a new representative will end up making it easier for you in the long run.

Determining Order Total

In order to determine if you have met your sales goal, it is important to know how your order total is determined. Avon determines your order total by adding youravon.com submitted orders (a.k.a. brochure orders), online sales & Avon Sales Center purchases. The totals used do not include the taxes or any fees like Shipping & Handling. Basically they total up all your orders you have for any given campaign- It’s that simple!

What You Earn if You Do Not Meet Kickstart Sales Goal

If for some reason you do not meet your campaign sales goal, you will still earn money based on your order total. However, earnings will be based on the regular earnings chart:

2017 earnings chart

Keep in mind, if you do meet a sales goal for any given campaign, you are still able to earn the 40% earnings in the next campaign as long as you meet your sales goal. This is not a all or nothing incentive. The only thing missing a sales goal will effect regarding the Kickstart incentive is the performance bonus. See below for more details.

How to Start Growing Your Customer Base

Avon is a well known name so when you mention Avon to someone, he/she will know the brand (Personally, I have not come across ANYONE who did not know what Avon was in the last almost 2 years of being a representative.) So, once you start letting people know you are an Avon representative, you will get customers. For your first campaign, it is recommended to start with your warm market. Your warm market contains people you know personally- family, friends, neighbors, coworkers, etc.

The “hard part” comes after letting your warm market know. The goal each campaign is informing as many people as you can. Don’t worry, though, you will be provided with tools, guidance & training to help you with that:

 

3-ways-to-shop

  • FREE E-Store: As an Avon representative, you are able to create your very own e-Store for customers to shop online. This helps representatives be able to build their businesses outside of their local area. As a new representative, this can be very helpful if you have friends & family who either live out of the local area or prefer to shop online. Also available on your e-Store are tutorials, guides & even a skincare quiz customers can use to help them choose the best products for what their needs & wants are. To learn about more of the benefits your customers will be able to enjoy by shopping online, check out Benefits of Shopping Avon with Jen Antunes Online.
  • FREE Email Center & Social Media Center: On your personal Avon account, you will have access to a FREE Email Center & Social Media Center to help you share your business online. They are updated on a regular basis with new images & topics. What makes this an amazing tool is when someone clicks on your email or post image, they will be automatically directed to your e-Store.

  • Sales Tools: On your personal Avon account, you will have access to sales tools to help you better provide for your customers. Each campaign, you will have access to a tips video on how you can use the highlighted products to grow your sales & gain new customers. You will also have access to printable product information so you can recommend the best product to meet your customer’s needs.

  • FREE Online Training: Another benefit as an Avon representative is access to FREE Online training with Avon U found on your personal Avon account. There you will have access to personalized training that will help you learn how to start & grow your Avon business.
  • Training & Guidance from Your Upline & Other Representatives: What makes being an Avon representative so amazing is the support & guidance you get from other representatives, starting with me as your mentor, when you join our Avon team. I will be your go to person when you have questions or concerns. As your mentor you will be provided with support, guidance & training so you learn how to create & build a successful Avon business. With the use of Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest & the internet, you will also have access to other training materials & videos from other top Avon representatives across the country.

President’s Recognition Club

The main goal for the sales component in the Kickstart incentive is to help new representatives build a solid customer base so they can earn at the President’s Club sales level. Now I’m sure you’re wondering:

“What is President’s Club?”

Presidents Recognition Program Sales Levels

The President’s Recognition Club (PRC) is a way Avon recognizes & rewards representatives who sells $10,000+ in Award Sales with in a given sales year (by Campaign 26). The first sales level in the PRC is called President’s Club. A representative will reach this sales level once he/she has accumulated $10,000 in Award Sales between Campaign 1 & Campaign 26.

Once he/she has reached the President’s Club sales level, he/she will receive the rest of that selling year & all of the following year:

  • 40% earnings on jewelry & beauty products
  • 25% earnings on fixed earning items.
  • Ability to purchase up to 3 products at demo price in Avon’s representative demo book.
  • Invitation to Avon’s President Recognition Program annual event
  • Ability to order Avon brochures 2 campaigns early for a small fee.
  • Exclusive gift & pin presented at the President Recognition annual event.’
  • 400 points in order to redeem Mrs. Albee Award from the Rewards Headquarter or you can use the points toward other items.

The higher you go up in the PRC the more rewards & benefits you will receive. For example, those who are Presidents Council & above earn a FREE ANNUAL TRIP! Yes that’s right- EACH YEAR YOU QUALIFY YOU WILL RECEIVE A FREE TRIP! Do you know another company who will give you a free trip for just doing what you would be doing anyways- SELLING AVON! Check out what earners of the 2017 President’s Recognition Program Celebration will receive next spring:

How to Complete Kickstart Recruiting Component

When a new representative shares the Avon opportunity with others & has recruits join under their name, he/she has the opportunity to earn a $50 recruiting bonus for each one that joins. There is no cap on how many $50 recruiting bonuses a new representative can earn so this is a great opportunity for him/her to earn A LOT of money!

How to Qualify for Kickstart Recruiting Bonus

In order to receive the $50 recruiting bonus, he/she needs to meet 2 qualifications:

  1. The recruit must join within the first 7 campaigns of the new representative. (After the 7th campaign, the recruiting bonus is $20 each) 
  2. The new representative must place a $150 by their 2nd campaign on time & pay for it on time.

FYI: If a Kickstart representative does not recruit within their first 7 campaigns, he/she will not lose out on the sales component of the Kickstart incentive. They are separate bonuses within the same incentive.

How to Start Growing Your Team

One thing you need to keep in mind as you are growing your team is that there are a variety of reasons why someone would want to join Avon. The way that Avon has set up their direct selling business, the Avon opportunity will meet the variety of reasons you will come across as a recruiter.

TIP: As a recruiter, it is up to you to learn what is each person’s why so you can let them know how the Avon opportunity can help them. So, when you are talking to people about your business & the Avon opportunity make sure to listen to what they are saying. Recruiting is about them, not you.
