I think you gals are on the same page (at least you seem to be, reading through comments you've made elsewhere). It is so easy to misread the "tone" of a post when communicating this way. Let's get back to tanning!

"What do you as a salon owner think your sales reps are really up to? In your opinion, who are they really looking out for"?
When you say YOUR sales rep, that is implying that it is the company that a salon owner is using. Do you really think as a salon owner, they are going to choose a distributor that they think is "shady" or in it for the wrong reasons? That is the whole advantage of having so many distributors out there now.... you get to be selective and use the company that you feel best about. Am I wrong?

As a salon owner, I dont like getting call after call for someone trying to solicit lotions. If you want me to try your lotion, send me samples, if we like it I will order it. If not, Please dont keep calling me, especially during tanning season, I am to busy to worry about buying lotions, I have never used or even heard of.

It annoys the heck out of me!!! I tell them the same spill about sending me samples. I don't have time for it. So I put my number on the do not call list. I can't wait to see if it works.

If you are talking about the national do not call list sorry it will not help stop calls at your salon, it is only for residences not biz to biz sales.

I got 4 calls today.....

My standard reply is that I don't buy new lotions over the phone from someone I don't know based on a "hot deal" or because the manufacturer bought an ad on page la-de-da of yadda-yadda-yadda tanning magazine last month.

You have my address: send me samples and your deals in writing or don't bother me.

If I and my staff like your product and we can sell it at "double keystone" margins for the suggested retail price, then I will buy in product. I don't buy samples to try.

Oh my GOD I can't stand that! Because they have an ad in TANNING TRENDS I'm supposed to believe that thier lotion is any good. I'm so glad I don't get tanning trends as it seems that all the "top lotion manufacturers" seem to have their ads in there. Buy 12 and we'll send you 36 free! Oh man. What a deal. And it's always tingle lotion.

Like you can sell all those lotions to someone. What sucks if you dont like it, you cant do anything with it. Thats why I want samples first. You are suppose to be able to send them a letter in writing telling them not to call you. I did that last year and they still call me. The kicker that really gets me is that when you get one call it seems all of them florida seller calls the same day.
My things is, if you can afford that ad you can afford to send out samples. Media is not cheap.
