I'm not real sure what other sample box companies offer their e-tailers for sending in their products. I purposely don't know, so that we are able to build our company without the influence of others. If we do something similiar to them, it is purely accidental. Maybe great minds think alike! I wish all entrepreneurs the best of luck in their endeavors. That said, I will continue listing our "perks".
You send in your wonderful, creative samples to us and we package them up to send out to our consumers. You may ask, "What's in it for me, as an e-tailer"? That is a good question. I don't know anyone that does this, but it is a possible scenario - the samples arrive - they are packaged - sent out - end of story. Well, that is not how we work.
Once your samples arrive here -
* You are added to the list of e-tailers "in the box"
* If you have been an e-tailer in the past, you are listed on that page of our website
* If you have decided to be a sponsor for the month - you have a page on our website to promote yourself.
* If you have decided to be the mystery prize sponsor for the month - you will be listed as such.
*you are added to our forum. You may go to the forum - visit and leave comments as often as you like. Your page on the forum is "your page". You may post specials, pictures of products, promote your website - whatever you want on this page.
*You will be listed on our blog as an e-tailer in the box.
*If you have a blog and send us the link - your blog will be listed.
*You may ask to be featured in the "e-tailer spotlight".
*If you are featured in the "spotlight" we will promote you on many forums, myspace and twitter.
*We are always looking for new places to promote your website (and ours). We will share any places that we find with you.
*Your website will have many links on the internet and we know that search engines love links. This will make your website more visible to the consumer.
*Once you have been an e-tailer with us, we will still contact you about forums to join, places to promote your businesses, and ideas for getting the word out. If you aren't interested - just hit delete.
Now, I know you are wondering, "What does it cost", "What is the catch"? It doesn't cost you anything other than the cost of your samples. And there is no catch. We believe there are many small indie business in this country with superior products. They are just out there waiting for someone to come along and discover them. We have found some wonderful products, great business women and men, with excellent customer service. Maybe they just don't know where to go to get the exposure they need or maybe they simply don't have the time that it takes. It is time intensive to find places to promote buisnesses and products that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. In these days of economic decline, small business don't have the money to shell out for anything extra and we understand that concept. This is our area of expertise. We have the time to search for new places for free or low cost advertising and promotion.
Our goal is to promote your business to the best of our ability. We will work hard to see that you are promoted and not just tossed in the box and forgotten about. We do want your products, but only so we can show the world "what you have to offer".
