Avon Representatives can list under the Avon name in the White Pages section. The phone company, of course, charges extra for this service, which will be added to your monthly phone bill. Representatives may secure a boldface listing. For example:
Some Representatives have had great success listing in the Yellow Pages (business) section of the phone book. For example:
For a fee charged by the telephone company, Representatives can obtain a toll-free number for business purposes.
This is particularly helpful for Representatives who are active in recruiting or Representatives who invest in building their Customer base through the Avon Brochure by Mail or eRepresentatives.
Representatives may wish to separate their listings from those of other Representatives by further identifying themselves.
For example: “Avon Independent Sales Representative Mary Smith of Queens, New York.” No other business name may be included. If, for example, a Representative also sells “XYZ Toys,” that name cannot appear in the ad with “AVON.” Otherwise, Customers could assume that Avon and XYZ Toys are related companies.
As a general rule, if you publish a telephone number in the White Pages or Yellow Pages, it is automatically published online as well. In addition to your name, address and phone number, some online telephone directories offer, as part of the listing, the option of including e-mail links, driving directions, maps, etc.
Check with your local telephone directories to determine which listing options are available to support your Avon business. Many telephone directories are exclusively Web-based, such as Switchboard.com, YellowPages.com and Infobel.com.
Others are names you may know well, like AnyWho.com (AT&T), SuperPages.com (Verizon), SmartPages.com (Southwest Bell, Pacific Bell, Nevada Bell) and many more. IMPORTANT! Representatives must clearly identify themselves as Avon Independent Sales Representatives, both in their ads and when speaking on the phone.
Representatives may not imply that they are employees of Avon or are Avon, the company.Avon Independent Sales Representative
