no worries at all I can take it
as for tardis....welll.....hmmmm
Phil, here is some constructive criticism. When I started eShine I insisted on selling only products that I personally found I liked and did not see the need to sell other similar products at similar prices. Some brands I did not sell because I did not like the way they performed. Then I realised being a big brother and deciding what people should or should not use is not good business sense. Because most products are very user subjective we tried adding several brands that we did not plan solely on the brands being the “flavour of the week” on forums. The way I see it is if the customer wants product A, who am I to say, “no, no, you need to try product B”. We simply sell them what they want. I have customers simply love products that I have found to suck and vice versa, I use several products which I read on forums to be considered sucky products yet I love them. Business here grows with how many products and variety we have. Even in this recession our sales grew over 50% this year. My advice it to keep doing the hard to get stuff but also consider the popular brands. I took a look at your brands and you are lacking the major players. Klasse, Wolfgang, Pinnacle, Duragloss, Lexol, Poorboys, the rest of the Optimum line etc. These lines are HUGE and bring in a lot of business and make a LOT of happy customers. Without the bread N Butter lines we would not survive or grow.
I don't disagree with you but I'm not sure the market we have over in the us will be the same as the one in ca...but heck what do I know lol
optimum is very easy I have tried and tested everything and pretty much everything will be on the shelf by middle of next week.
I'm still working on many other things but as you know I also only go direct
We find that popular products in the USA fly off our shelves as soon as we stock them. I would only assume that they also sell great in the US of A. Dealing with Palm Beach gets you DP (A great seller), Wolfgang, and Pinnacle. Three birds with one stone! Steve at Poorboys is a good guy to deal with. Get cracking! LOL
the funny thing is we sponsor 40 websites now and no one has asked me for anything but one brand and you didn't mention it, Megs.. M105 and M205....
No one even really knows wolfgang and dp on the other boards that we sell on...
Agreed.... only one other person I know that operates like this and that is Bob at Danase...
Phil, the fact that you take the time to post a thread like this says a heck of a lot.
If we're going to pick lines we'd like to see you pick up, my vote is for Scholl. I've used four of their polishes and loved each of them. S03+ is the best heavy cutting compound I've ever used.
It wouldn't hurt my feelings if you didn't pick up Meguiar's. I know a lot of people here like 105; I hated it and sold my bottle here on DB. :lol:
Only 10% of our customers come from forums. Duno, maybe our strategy only works in the snow
phil is the best
but seriously, i buy pretty much everything from DD except for the Meg's detailer line products that i use like Hyperdressing, APC+, and wheel brightener...
list the items of megs I may have to bite the bullet.
as for the % of biz I get from the forums well its much more than 10% off maybe I should see how your doing it Chris because right now.
I have 55% coming from the forum
I have only used the lifelong sealant and the shampoo. One of the cleanest rinsing shampoos ever.
i would wana see separate pricing if you ship to business address. this saves about 30% on shipping cost
when i calculated shipping to residential address from CG for those towels, shipping came to $8 something. when i did for business address (my work) it came to $5. i dont think its hard to do since ups and fedex gives this option on their site. whats the problem with setting this up?
Where in Jersey?
Your service is fantastic! My only advice to you is that you need to corner the market.
The only mfg's that I could think of adding is.......
Megs- affordable & popular=increased sales and profit
Poorboys- fantastic products for the price
Dodo- offers a lower to mid priced waxes which you really don't have
Vics- because I want it and I want to buy it from you
We are in Norwood NJ.
Thanks for the comments I have worked on many and some have not come thru.
Others like M105 and M205 will be coming soon in 32 and 1 gal and it will be an aggressive price and limited qty.
cool. i still have to try M205.
any chance of expanding your 1Z line?
what would you like to see I would have to bring it in on special order because I believe we have the full line already.
Universal Cleaner with Odor Eliminator
Multi-Wash and Tar Remover
Acrysol Silicone Remover
Intensive Plastic Care
Anti_frost Windscreen Cleaner Concentrate
I got the stuff listed from this link: http://einszett.com/website/katalog_en.pdf
They also make clay, but the stupid Automagic patent keeps that from being carried here.
