One Voice: A Thank You Letter to Distributors
For most people, the written 'thank you' is the ideal expression of warm, heartfelt thanks. The Emily Post Institute, the legacy of the queen of etiquette, recommends that we get in touch with the sincerity of thanking people for thinking about them with a gift—even if it's a hot pink polyester sweater. Although not technically hand-written, this particular thank-you note is a public expression of the gratitude we have as an industry for the host of products and services provided by each and every distributor. THANK YOU!
The CustomRetailer.net Web site publishes, free of charge, every participating distributor's schedule of training: http://www.customretailer.net/calendars. Thousands of hours of manufacturers' training, business courses and expos are offered practically every day of the year, specifically designed to make you a successful custom retailer, integrator or installer.
These unsung heroes have identified and filled the gap between simply ordering a product through their catalogues, their online store or from the will-call counter, and helping their customers run a successful business. That gap is about understanding how to grow your business with strategic and pragmatic business training. It's about product knowledge and how to make more money from selling new technology. And it's about implementing a business model makeover targeting new market segments like commercial and security.
CustomRetailer.net makes it easy to keep track of the news from our distributor partners as well, with the dedicated Distributor Topic section on the Web site: http://www.customretailer.net/topic/distributors. Add both of these links to your Favorites for easy reference, along with the Web site addresses of your distributor partners.
And while you are at it, sign up for the CustomRetailer E-Weekly Newsletter at http://www.custom retailer.net/. We will send you the Special Digital Edition of the Ultimate Guide to Distributors in August with updated information from the content inside this April issue.
