    Hi guys,

    Recently moved from sole trader to a LTD company as I now have rights to a product.

    What I am wondering is what would be the best way to move larger volumes. Target other retailers (I have brought on two new trade customers in the first two weeks) or find a distributor and do distributors actually approach large retailers to move them or do they just wait to be approached and if either option, is there a good more effective way of finding such distributors etc.

    The product is a mobile phone accessory

    Thank you!

    Hi Reece

    There are distributirs that just list your product and wait for orders, others who specialise in the major retailers. There are however many who will actively push new products, and normally have quite a large customer database ranging from one man bands to the major retailers.

    We are a small consumer electronics distributor, hopefully one of the more pro-active ones.

    If you want to IM me the detials on the product I can certainly have a look.
