Avon does listen to their sales force from time to time.
No more Brochure Effective Dates! Yes, Avon heard you! They listen to what their Representatives want and are open to making changes. Can you say the same about the company you work for?
Brochure Effective Dates
Beginning in Campaign 18, starting August 8th, 2018, Avon will no longer print the brochure effective dates on the back of the campaign brochures.
Personally, I use stickers on the back of my brochures, with my contact information and the link to my online store, so I simply cover the brochure dates.
In the past few weeks I did hear a lot of grumbling that many Reps, especially the ones that have been with Avon for a long time, didn’t like having the brochure effective dates on the back cover.
In a statement released in May, on the YourAvon.com representative website, they stated the following. “We understand these dates may have resulted in last-minute orders from your customers and lots of last-minute order submissions to place at the close of each Campaign. Remember, the early bird gets the benefits when it comes to Campaign ordering.”

They added a brochure effective date to the back of their Avon campaign brochures in early May. After getting negative feedback from numerous Reps. they decided to remove the dates. Thank you for listening Avon!
After a few months Avon decided to remove the brochure dates again since enough Representatives complaint about it. Ha! You just can’t please everybody, all the time.
