If you are new to Avon, you may be wondering how to find new customers. One way to let people know that they have an Avon Representative nearby ready to help them is by canvasing with your brochures. There are a number of places to leave Avon Brochures if you want to gain new customers. It’s helpful to be creative and come up with a few new places to leave Avon brochures that are special to your own town, but this list will get you started. If you can’t afford many brochures in the beginning, ask your Avon mentor or district manager if they have any old brochures you can have.

How Do I Know Where To Leave My Avon Brochures?

The key to gaining new Avon customers is leaving brochures in strategic places consistently.

 

Strategic because you want to pick places that have heavy traffic and that are frequented by your customer base. Your broad customer base is women ages 18-100. It’s up to you which demographic you want to focus on from there. You may find that women in a specific age range, frequent a particular type of establishment, or who share a particular hobby seem to be your best customers. Go out of your way to market to them a little extra.

 

Consistent because people want a reliable Avon Representative. If you don’t keep up with current brochures, your potential customers will forget about your business, and it sends the message that you are flaky. Don’t expect to see a sudden jump in your customer base or sales because you remembered to leave brochures a couple times in a couple places. You have to consciously keep brochures in your bag/purse at all times and train yourself to scope out and recognize opportunities when they arise. You also have to get past the fear of being caught doing something wrong. If it turns out there is a policy that an establishment doesn’t allow soliciting, they will use the contact information on your brochure or business card to let you know. No harm, no foul.

When I was first starting out with my Avon business, I used many of the listed places to leave Avon brochures but my two favorite spots were bathroom stalls and neighborhood tossing.

 

Bathroom stalls were quick and easy. Leaving brochures in the clear literature bags hanging from the coat hooks on the back of bathroom stall doors is super simple and perfect for the shy representative or an introvert. When people use the stall, if they are interested, they will take the brochure and if they are not, they will leave it for someone who is.

 

Neighborhood tossing was an easy way to cover a ton of potential customers in a densely packed area. It is also a fun way to get your kids involved in the “business”. I like to take my boxes of old Avon brochures and toss them in different neighborhoods. I keep track by writing down the neighborhood and the date. You could also use a map to do this and just fill in the date you covered each neighborhood. Sometimes I get a bite and sometimes I don’t but I feel like I’m covering more ground and expanding my reach by doing this. Plus it makes me feel better knowing that all of my old brochures didn’t go to the garbage man.

 

If you are feeling particularly bold, introduce yourself to people when going to the places on the list and hand them an Avon brochure personally. Putting a face to the name on the back of your brochure inspires confidence and may gain you an order. Make sure you get their contact information so you can call and follow up! This is easily accomplished by applying a sticky note to the front or back of each of your brochures. Use the sticky note to jot down their contact info before handing them the brochure. A name and a phone number or email address is enough. Don’t ask for too much more than that or they may start getting skittish. You keep the sticky note and they get the brochure in return. You can also make up bombitas and hand them out  instead of brochures. Make sure you are getting their contact information too! Have some brochures on hand though in case someone asks if you have one.

ATM – Leave one propped up at your local atm. You could even hit atm’s from other banks.

Secretary Of State – Don’t go overboard in government buildings. Just leave a brochure on your vacated seat as you walk up to take care of your business. Don’t go specifically to leave brochures because this is bound to get you reprimanded.

Library – Libraries usually have Take One areas and bulletin boards for community information. Take advantage. Maybe post a fundraising flyer as well.

Post Office – As a rule, at least at my local post office, you can’t advertise on their bulletin boards unless you get permission. My post office would only let me post something that was to the community’s advantage. A Fundraiser flyer is an easy way to get around this. Just make sure all of your contact information is included so regular Avon customers can contact you too.

Laundromat – Laundromats usually have both bulletin boards and tables with magazines. Leave a brochure or two laying out. Customers have nothing but time to kill while waiting on their loads so they are bound to pick up your brochure.

Mechanics Waiting Room – Leave a brochure among the magazines in the waiting area.

WIC Office – Leave a brochure among the magazines in the waiting area.

Dept. Human Services Lobby – Don’t go overboard in government buildings. Just leave a brochure on your vacated seat as you walk up to take care of your business. Don’t go specifically to leave brochures because this is bound to get you reprimanded.

Temporary Staff Offices – Leave a brochure among the selection of magazines in the waiting area.

Church Lobby – Leave one or two in a casual area or on a bulletin board depending on your place of worship.

Bowling Alley – Look for a bulletin board to place your brochures, flyers, or business cards.

Movie Theater – I would just leave a brochure or two in the ladies bathroom either on the stall door or laying on the counter top. The back of the stall door in a clear literature bag is you best bet if you don’t want your brochures seen and thrown out by theater employees.

Bar Bathrooms – Hang a brochure or two in a clear literature bag on the bathroom stall hook, or if the sink counter looks clean and dry, lay one there.

Pool Hall – Look for a bulletin board to place your brochures, flyers, or business cards.

Resale Shops – Look for a bulletin board to place your brochures, flyers, or business cards.

Door of Public Restroom Stall – Hang a brochure inside a clear literature bag on the hook of the bathroom stall door. It’s out of the way but clearly visible to each occupant of the stall after you.

Dressing Room – Leave a brochure on the dressing room bench when you leave for the next occupant.

Hair Salon – Make sure you get permission to leave your brochures or business cards at salons as they may view your advertisements as competition to their products or services.

Apartment Managers Office – See if you can persuade the manager of yours or a local apartment complex to include a brochure in their welcome packets for new tenants. Just make sure you either give him/her business cards/flyers so they don’t expire, or keep up with switching out current brochures. I  personally would get the big Anew sample cards and just staple my business card to the front of it. That way they are getting a freebie, it’s big enough to not be missed, it doesn’t expire every 2 weeks, and they have all of your contact information to get a brochure if they are interested.

Retirement Home/Senior Center – Look for a bulletin board to place your brochures, flyers, or business cards. You could also ask to set out brochures at the front check-in desk.

Real Estate Agents Office – Ask if you can add brochures to the realtors welcome bags for new home owners, or if they don’t give out welcome bags, if you can make some up yourself for them to hand out. If you really want to go all out, you could go around to other local businesses to see if they have coupons or samples they would like to include in the bags and use that opportunity to touch base about possibly setting your brochures at their establishments.

Open Houses – Ask the realtor holding the open house if you can set some brochures out at their welcome table as a sort of neighborhood welcome.

Convenience Store – Look for a bulletin board to place your brochures, flyers, or business cards.

With Tip at Restaurants – Leave a brochure on the table with your tip after your meal. Your server will love the bonus!

Toll Booth Collectors – Hand a brochure to your toll booth collector with your payment.

Fast Food Clerks – Hand a brochure to the clerk who takes your food order.

Mall Bench – Leave a brochure on a mall bench. Be aware that you might get a call from management about this since you are advertising a business without “renting” space. That is what my local mall’s management said.

Casino/Slot Machines – Leave a brochure sitting on top of your slot machine when you get up from it.

Expressway Rest Stops – If there is a bulletin board, utilize that but you can also hang brochures from the bathroom stall doors.

Bus Stop Benches – Leave a brochure on the bench as you get on the bus. You could also leave a brochure in your seat on the bus as you reach your stop.

Train Station – Leave a brochure in the bathroom or on any public bulletin boards.

Airport – Leave a brochure on your seat as you get up to board or to switch terminals.

Hotel/Motel Lobby – Leave a brochure among the array of magazines in the lobby area.

Newspaper Stand – Leave one or two brochures sitting on top of a newspaper box. You know the ones on street corners that you put a dollar into and the door pulls down? Those ones.

Under YOUR Windshield Wiper – This distinction is important because placing a brochure or flyer on someone else’s car is illegal in some states. If you want to drum up some business in a densely packed parking lot, try to park where the most traffic will be walking by. Stick a removable command hook on your back window and hang some brochures inside clear literature bags from the hook. If people are interested, they will take one.

Yard Sales – If you, a friend or neighbor is having a garage sale, put out some books and samples to see if you can drum up some new business. Just make sure that if you put out any samples or products, that they are in the shade. You don’t want melted lipstick bullets!

Toss Old Brochures on Doorsteps – You can use your new brochures but tossing won’t yield a ton of leads so it’s best to use expired books with a little note or sticker detailing that they are old and if they would like a new one to contact you. There are so many cute rhymes other representatives have come up with for this one.

It’s important to note that many of the places to leave Avon brochures listed above are also great for recruiting. If you feel like you are ready to mentor a team of new Avon Representatives, now is the time to consider Leadership. Place recruiting flyers out as well when you are canvasing for new customers. You could also have recruiting oriented business cards made up and tack some of those up instead of flyers. Flyers are big and splashy but can be expensive to print ink-wise. You can get 500 business cards from Vista Print sometimes for as little as $9.99. Many people are looking for a way to make some extra money. Especially when the holidays are nearing.
