For anybody interested in Sandy’s Wholesale Business Consultation service I’d like to share my experience.
In short – this was EXACTLY what I needed to give me the peace of mind that was preventing me launching.
Even before I began the consultation I started to benefit. I actually booked my hours appointment weeks ago. It took me forever to get myself prepared enough to be able to explain my business plan. The work needed to explain clearly how my business would run gave me a wonderful clarity of mind.
I was a little embarrassed that I’d sent … over 35 pages before the consultation began! Half of these were legal documents and just skimming through them probably took up the full hour of the consultation time I’d paid for. Mercifully for me Sandy didn’t charge any extra for this preparation time.
…I had prepared a long list of questions and I was amazed by how straightforward the answers to many of them were.
Some questions had been stressing me out for weeks and yet suddenly within 60 minutes they were all just deflating one after the other.
As you might have perceived from (her) writings, Sandy (is) very personable. They put me immediately at ease and I never felt I was asking dumb questions and they took their time helping me understand anything I was unfamiliar with.
The most valuable few snippets of information I gained from the consultation included:
– The benefits of creating a welcome package for my new sales reps.
– Loads of tweaks to my complex sales rep agreement
– An entirely new market I’d never considered before
– The value of me being represented at Trade Shows in January.
By the end of the consultation I was fired with enthusiasm. Since then I’ve been waking up excited to continue work, I’ve gained the confidence to actually speak to reps on the phone without fearing they’d see me as a novice and we’re just a few days away from having all our paperwork, admin, welcome packs, website and marketing materials finalized.
Everybody else – you’re reading this because you’re clearly interested in or involved in selling to retailers. Whether you’ve got a concrete plan already or are just looking for somebody to bounce ideas from I can proudly attest that there’s no better way to move forward than to speak to our resident industry experts.
(P.S. No I was not paid to write this, but I felt the consultation fee was such a steal that I wanted to find a sincere way or repaying their time and service.)
Sandy helped me out a tremendous deal when I had a recent consultation appointment with (her). There were many aspects to my business that I thought I was doing right and (she was) able to affirm alot of what I was doing. Also, great advice like using the assistance of commission based sales reps has already helped me to take my business to the next level. Both me and the clients I represent are grateful for all I learned from the Dells!
