    Hey

    I am launching a new brand and plan to wholesale to retailers. I have managed to secure some one on one time with a (until very recently) state manager of a major company in my particular niche of the retail industry.

    We are meeting up tomorrow and I am not quite clear on the role of the state manager or what assistance they could provide a start up such as us.

    Some questions to ask or clarification of their role would be great

    Thanks

    How about just that. What exactly was your roll ? What did it entail ? What could you bring to my business ?

    Hi Prelaunch,

    That sounds like a great opportunity for you.

    In your shoes, I’d be asking what the best way is to approach someone like him/her (or the national manager above him/her) about ranging your products. What kind of presentation do they expect to see, what kind of financial info would be helpful, what else will help you get your foot in the door?

    Hope that helps – good luck!
