This spring we have just returned from the tiny beach town of La Manzanilla, Mexico.

Where we stayed.

Not to gloat but…. we stayed in this amazing house on the the near perfect 5 mile beach in La Manzanilla.

I Am Here

Every year I take a 3+ week vacation during the Chinese New Years.

Sun, Sand and Product Research. Yeah right!

You may be thinking as you read this..”BS…product research on the beach in Mexico!” If you do think this way (ie BS) you are wrong (in a nice way).

“Yea Right…you call BS…product research on the beach in Mexico!”

We work very hard 11 months of the year trying to stay on top of the new trends and ideas. We are very quick in recognizing new ideas that work for logoing, sourcing them in China and around the world and adding them to the site making them available to you and your clients.

However, our best product research and testing is done during the period in China where everyone at the factory is on holidays. Chinese New Years.

Where I go and What I do?

For the last few years I have gone to a tiny Mexican fishing village on the west coast called La Manzanilla.  I stay in a great place called Casa Maguey.

During the next 4 weeks I will be shooting images of new products and updating Sage and our web sites. We will be testing out the products looking for advantages and decorating options that will make you and your clients happy in 2019. Stay tuned for updates.

I will be answering emails but your main contact will be Emily who is forcibly tied to a desk back at the home office. She can be reached toll free at 1-888-908-1481 or email Emily

Day 1

I arrived and checked into my Casa. The town is La Manzanilla and is a fishing village of about 2500 people located on a soft white sand beach about 5 miles long. About 4 hours south of PV.

I am on the end, on a cliff overlooking the beach. Looking forward to product research….soon, real soon.

What is a Tyvek Wallet?

Firstly, let’s learn a little more about the fabulous material that is Tyvek. Tyvek is a Dupont product that has been used for decades as a waterproof, tearproof and breathable material. It is most commonly found in the material that is used as a wrap around your house. In fact, Tyvek (in use over 40 years) has wrapped more than 10 million houses in America.

 

“Waterproof, Tearproof, Super Thin …it is the perfect material for the new Ultra-Thin Wallets.”

Why ASI is bad for your business

We believe that only using ASI or PPAI search for your business is a bad idea.

Here’s why!

We have been a supplier for 20 years and there are some secrets about ASI that most distributors don’t know. It is important to know so you can make more sales and make more money.

Here are a few key things you need to be aware of.

#1 – When you see ANY search result it is PAID to be placed there by the supplier

When using product searches on ASI or PPAI you may not be seeing the best, most popular or most innovative products at all. You are simply seeing what was paid to be seen!

Suppliers pay on average 60K a year for product placement. A few years ago I bought half of 1 day a week’s banner. It cost $1500 PER DAY!

#2 – The average age of end users is 35 while the average ASI distributor age is 57

There is a disconnect in the age gap that is most apparent if Distributors ONLY use ASI and PPAI search.

As a supplier, every day I get inquiries from Distributors looking for “something their client found online!” The end user wants something unique and unusual. They don’t always want the same thing, again… and again. You need to look elsewhere!

#3 – If you only use ASI and PPAI search, what advantage do you have over your competitor?

It may seem obvious, but if you and the Distributor down the street get the same inquiry for the same general product what advantage do you have? Isn’t it then only down to price?

In the internet age, Distributors need an advantage to beat out their biggest competitor: the end user!

If you keep presenting the same old ideas as your competitor down the street you will continue to encourage the end user (remember they are 35 and web-savvy) to buy online and NOT from you.

“It’s time to think differently!”

set ups are a scam

What do YOU think?

Does this make sense to you? Is this intriguing? Is this an idea you want to explore? Join the many hundreds of other innovative forward thinking Distributors who are looking for something different.
