What IS an AOL?

AOL stands for AVON On Location. An AOL, typically takes place at a public venue, such as a shopping mall, or a fair. At an AOL you have a display about the AVON Opportunity, and AVON products. Sometimes you will also offer fundraising items for sale, such as the breast cancer crusade items. Most AOLs also include a draw.The draw tickets, help you create a mailing list of people who would like to hear more about the AVON opportunity, or receive AVON brochures.

Tools for a successful AOL

Here’s a list of some handy tools for an AOL.

  1. Brochures – Have lots of brochures to hand out! Our team, sometimes has access to free brochures you can use for special events.
  2. Stickers with your contact information - especially handy to put on brochures when you are in a hurry, as they don’t smudge.
  3. Draw ballots – Print out official ballots from your info center, or order from AVON under leadership materials.
  4. Pens – you can never have enough of these.
  5. Note pad or book for notes.
  6. Draw box – While the one you can order from AVON looks nice, it is flimsy. Brigitte has a source for a great locking wooden box.
  7. Opportunity flyers – Information about joining your AVON team
  8. AVON pin or button – Wear something that identifies you as an AVON member.
  9. Table cloth- Dress up the table! Plain is best.(Usually the venue supplies a table)Our team has table cloths you can borrow.
  10. Display items – Our team has a variety of items you can borrow, we have everything from signs to flags, to banners.
  11. AVON Membership kits – at least one.
  12. What’s New flyer.- Show prospects the great deals available!
