Another Christmas Fayre [Dec. 4th, 2011|02:17 pm]
Tony Grist
We took Odi and her Avon cosmetics to another Christman Fayre at another school (this time in Rochdale)- and once again she failed to sell anything. The stall next to hers did OK- but that was mainly because Ailz and I are crazy for pashminas. There was a brass band playing Christmas music out in the corridor and I took Christa by the hand and went and plonked down next to them.

I think people see Avon as more something your order online or buy from home. And then there is the fact that it's something you can get any day and not just at special events. That's too bad.

Odi needs to work on her sales techniques. Her friend- who was also selling cosmetics- was offering punters free facials. Odi just laid her stuff out on a shelf at the back of the and sat around waiting for custom.

I did very well on Avon, going door to door. I was a top seller and made some real money for my family to supplement my husband's salary. I also made a lot of friends and I enjoyed what I was doing. If Odi wants to make any money with Avon, she will have to go door to door and follow up without high pressure.

Odi has been going door-to-door. I don't know how well she's doing. Early on she made the mistake of handing over a lot of stuff to a customer before she was paid- and the woman disappeared overnight.
