  • Look for vendor opportunities in your area (craft shows, spring flings, etc). You may be able to set up a table to display your products and make some new contacts. Make sure you get your customers contact info so you can follow up and let them know when you are placing orders. Get their emails and send them an electronic newsletter to share what's new and remind them to order. It takes time to build your customer base but the great thing is that you can build bigger and bigger. Also, I believe Avon offers a fundraiser? If you are interested in offering fundraisers you want to let people know that it's an option. A fundraiser would be a great way to get a lot of new customers. Good luck.
