Do you know that many people don't place an Avon order because they feel that their order is too small and that they don't want to waste your time.
To get around this I like to put a label on the front of the Avon brochure that says something like:
"SMALL ORDERS WELCOME!"
I usually add this label the third time I drop at a house. (Because I would rather they place large orders, so it's really only a tactic to pick up houses that haven't ordered from you yet).
