Hello, I just registered and I am beginning a plan to supply connections throughout the Caribbean with cleaning formula. Although and because the formula's packaging has been marketed primarily in commercial size containers only, for some 23 years, I have been requested by numerous Caribbean Wholesale Company Owners to provide 'household size' packaging to fill the demands from their patrons. My efforts to personally 'save' for such a niche market approach, since the original company owner has no desire to enter such marketing avenues, has been a personal challenge especially by resent family health expenses. Whereby, I am leaning toward idea of establishing agreement with investors/wholesale exporters to buy setup orders, since income is such a major issue at this point. My primary concern is lose of control of wholesale accounts and established repeat customers in a never ending consumable's market. Is there a why to negotiate contracts to limit established initial agreements, is that approach, anyway common in 'startups'? I have about 30% of a business plan outlined to date. My experience on the front lines of daily direct sales in the Caribbean has taught me an overwhelming truth by not having availability to supply consumer size product our 6 man team would lose 40-50 sales each daily, again going door to door! Another angle is to have product indorsed by famous locals such as Olympian Gold Medalists who want get involved and who have personally bought and used the product. Anyone out there with suggestions or contacts feel free to contact me personally on my email, especially female owned business who want to get this export network of Exclusive Distributorships cemented and in place for the long term.
