I am new to Startup Nation. It’s really great to be able to find and connect with other entrepreneurs who share the same passion as me.
I am currently in the process of creating and importing a line of bedding products (comforters, blankets and maybe even bedding sheets..etc) that address the vast amount of population who suffers allergies and are looking for viable Down alternatives.
I have identified my suppliers; have the samples; base on the sample I received I am making some design adjustment; I am in the process finding a web designer to help me create my brand and my website.
So, the question is now that I have this wonderful line of products coming together, where do I connect with qualified independent sales rep. that already sale into the market I am looking for? I have tried Google search and contacted one “general” sale rep. company; after they took down my information, they never called me back.
Due to pricing point of the products and the type of the products (more along the luxury line), I am not looking to sell into Wal-mart, Target, Costco,…type of big box retailer; instead my target market is boutique shops and higher end stores.
Any feedback, suggestions and valuable leads would be highly appreciated
