A typical day for me is reviewing my sales and reaching out to customers for re-order opportunities. I am also always identifying new strategies to reach out to new customers. Researching online what customers carry the brands we offer and to see what current product they are carrying on their websites. I had to learn everything on my own there was no training offered , I am a quick learner and a go-getter who prefers to work independently so this wasn't a difficult task for me. The management style is very laid back, as long as you are doing your work and the sales are showing profitable, management lets you be. There is no micro-managing which I appreciate as I can handle my own businesses without being watched over by a manager. The hardest part of the job would be convincing retailers to add your product when they have similar product already on their floor. Since we are factory direct we are able to offer great quality product at a lower cost then our competitors.
