I'm working with a business with a list of potential widget producers to contact and request to sell their product (not large suppliers, usually individuals with one product for sale on a crappy website)
My reaction is to blast email them with something like:
"Hi I am Hubie with Widget Distribution, we want to sell your widget in our distribution channel. If you are interested please contact me."
The other hurdles to this is these widget producers normally price their products extremely high, we'll be requesting a MUCH lower retail price, and a restrictive contract on where they cannot sell their product once we begin distributing it (they can still sell where they do, just not where we will).
Obviously, I'm not so worried about contracts and commissions right now as much as I am with the opening email. What's the best way to approach all these widget producers without getting *deleted* or even worse *report spam*?
Thanks to all,
