Okay, my business cards are working out big time! My phone is ringing. How cool is that?
Now I think it is time to kick it up to the next notch and get Advertising Magnets. I can get my business cards printed with magnetic backs. That way people would always have my number and my Avon info on their fridge which I bet they never misplace.
I am also contemplating getting a couple of those magnetic car signs for my car door. Then I would always be advertising my Avon business. Not only that, all the mileage I put on my car with the signs attached is tax deductible!
I just took out a one week ad in the newspaper. It cost me just under $20.00. For a little over twice that much I could get the magnetic door signs. I could use them for weeks on end — months even — and only pay the one time fee. Plus, I’d get much better exposure.
Those door signs would also work well with another Avon selling strategy. At our last monthly meeting Cynthia told me I should always carry bagged Avon books and a window hook in my car, then when I park I hang a few Avon books out and interested passersby can grab one. That car sign might lead people in the parking lot to approach the car and see the books.
Or I could create a shape magnet. I think a magnet shaped like a bottle of nail polish (only bigger, of course) with my Avon contact info on it might be catchy. And all of these strategies combined (implemented one at a time, of course) will slowly help me grow my business.
