How to host an AVON Coffee Morning

It is a great idea to host an AVON Coffee Morning for your customers (and potential customers) as you can showcase AVON products and have a natter with your customers over an informal cup of coffee and cake.  In this blog post, I want to share with you my top tips for holding a successful AVON Coffee Morning.

Getting Organised for the AVON Coffee Morning

There isn’t a lot to get organised in advance, it’s just about being organised.  There are checklists on the AVON website that are easy to download and follow.

All your invitations and checklists are available on your AVON website to simply download and print.

Here are the key points to holding a basic AVON Coffee Morning:

TICK AVON Coffee Morning Get your venue sorted – either your own home or a friend/customers house coffee morning 210x300 AVON Coffee Morning

TICK AVON Coffee Morning  Decide on a date and time – depending on whether your customer base are daytime/evening type people.

TICK AVON Coffee Morning Send out your invites well in advance – make sure you “over” invite and remind people via your facebook and text/call people the day before the event.  I tend to invite double the number I want to attend.

TICK AVON Coffee Morning Place your order for a small amount of stock to display.  I find it best to concentrate on just a small range of products – perhaps skincare, jewellery, make-up or new launch products.  Think about what your customers like or may like to try.   We can advise you on what products you may want to order.

TICK AVON Coffee Morning  Have brochures, plenty of order forms and pens on hand.  Also get some samples.

TICK AVON Coffee Morning  Organise really basic refreshments – tea/coffee/soft drinks and some cakes or biscuits. It doesn’t have to be fussy or elaborate.

At the AVON Coffee Morning

It’s an informal get together where you are just having a chat with people – there doesn’t need to be any party games or demonstrations (unless you want to) so just be your HAPPY self.  Chances are, you will know a lot of your customers already, so it’s just like having friends around for a cuppa.

My top tips for making things run smoothly at an AVON Coffee morning are:

TICK AVON Coffee Morning  If you are expecting young children have a small play area set aside for them.  This will mean that mum can have a good look at the brochure and products.

TICK AVON Coffee Morning If you have some excess stock you could have a table where people can “buy now”

TICK AVON Coffee Morning Wear as many AVON products as you can – this will spark conversation and interest.

TICK AVON Coffee Morning You could hold a fundraising raffle.

TICK AVON Coffee Morning Put together a “goody bag” for all attendees – use the AVON black plastic bags – pop in a brochure, order form, some samples and your contact details on a “thank you” note.  Also, put in either a “Fancy Hosting Your Own Coffee Morning or AVON Party” flyer and/or if you are a Sales Leader you could put a Recruitment Flyer in too.

Hosting an AVON Coffee Morning is such a simple way of boosting sales, finding new customers and ultimately increasing your AVON Income.  Give it a try and see how you get on with an AVON Coffee Morning.
