I have developed, prototyped and filed patent application for a product that is currently being sold through an online and catalog specialty products firm. However, to reach the full potential of the product I am trying to establish business relationship with larger retail companies like RadioShack, Discovery and others, hopefully before the holiday season rush. Many of these companies, Discovery in particular, have non-helpful call in lines that ask how they may redirect your call and then refuse to do so, even when one of their VPs provided the contact information. I`ve followed their instructions for new product introduction but can not even get a critique on their evaluation. RadioShack on the other hand says their response will take 6 weeks to process, and not a day less.
Big Companies? Go figure.
Any one know how I can streamline these interfaces, or am I wasting time with them. I predict their revenue from my product will exceed $3.5 million, but time is a wasting.
