Finding Sales Reps
31 July 2012 4 Comments
So maybe you have been following my previous blogs on doing your own sales and have decided that this is not your favorite thing, or just don't feel it's your best use of time considering your lack of expertise, or you just outright hate it. Any which way you slice it, it has to be done if you want to make money….. so time to move on and find some reps.
Finding reps can be tricky. There is no main directory for reps out there – sadly. And if there was, I don't know if it would mean anything to you without seeing what they are all about, who they represent and if you click with them. These links below can direct to you listings of reps in the different categories for apparel and gift. I would suggest you call them and see who is wiling to meet with you after they view your website and/or catalogs. Unless the person comes HIGHLY recommended by a friend (or colleague) then I suggest taking a trip to visit them. You are most likely going to want to meet them face to face before you sign them on – I would highly recommend that.
