For those who are ready...
Every "success" guru, every personal
development program, every book on how to excel in your chosen field, emphasizes the use of mentors to accelerate your business
growth and profits.
As experienced trainers, with 24 combined years as successful sales reps, and 19
combined years experience as gourmet food manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers, my hubby, Malcolm, and I, can
help you meet your business goals more quickly.
We've "been there, done that" many times, and in 2010 we started publishing
information products to help people like you succeed.
Our published resources, including the Complete eGuide for Selling to Gift Shops, and the eGuide on How to Find, Recruit, and Manage Independent Sales Reps, and Trade Show Exhibiting Secrets! have sold hundreds of copies each. Along the way, we've
attracted stellar reviews and testimonials from small business professionals (like you!) who believe
we created great value in their business! (Check out the sidebars on those sales page
links above or click on the images below, for
But we don't have all the answers (though we love finding them for
you!). That is where a "Mastermind" group comes in.
The term "mastermind" first entered the general American lexicon, through the work
of Napolean Hill, who achieved fame by studying the habits of successful people, later publishing several
works on the topic, the most famous of which, was "Think and Grow Rich":
The concept of a Mastermind, is to bring
together people with a common goal, and rely on the collective group
knowledge to reach those goals, benefitting individual members.
In this case (since you will benefit, and I expect to get great
value as well), the mastermind group's goal becomes
the advancement of a highly profitable and rewarding product marketing business - for each
(Side benefits will include lifelong friendships and networking, with people you
will learn to love and care about, professionally AND personally.)
Anyway, after years of rubbing shoulders and networking with other product
marketers, and offering a market survey to fine-tune our thoughts about
relevant information needs, we designed a membership/mastermind program to meet those needs. We believe
this the best low-cost option to benefit those people in our industry who are TRULY ready to enter the
realm of success!
Are you one of those people?
'BIG PICTURE' BENEFITS of MEMBERSHIP!
From a macro (big picture) perspective, you get the
- Virtually unlimited private
consulting (albeit in a group environment), tapping into my knowledge and passion, about selling and
moving products, through wholesale channels. ($99/hour value)
- Unlimited private consulting (inside the Mastermind membership area) from
Malcolm's significant "big picture", and strategic orientation, on all
things marketing and business deveopment. ($150/hour value)
- Access to the vast
collective knowledge and experiences of the entire group, to solve your every problem, to ask for
feedback on your every effort, and to create new and important friendships in your industry. (Priceless!
... to borrow the credit card TV advertising slogan...)
- The opportunity to give back, and
share your own discoveries, thereby making a difference in the lives of
others who will become your compadres in product marketing. (After all, we are in this together,
both as an industry, and as members of this planet... NOTHING feeds individual self-esteem like helping others
succeed... and you WILL discover you care about your fellow travelers in this Mastermind, and they will care
- An occasional Q&A teleconference, where we can all
talk live... about ANYTHING!
- Periodic group chat... chitchat about lifestyle or business issues!
The membership solution we are
proposing, even offers a private communication messaging system as well
- for those topics just too sensitive or too much of a "trade secret" for you to feel comfortable
approaching the entire group.
PERSONAL BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP!
Now, from a "micro", or direct benefit standpoint, here are some valuable
opportunities you will own, if take advantage of our membership solution:

to join your blog, Fan page, LinkedIn group, or follow you on Twitter!

- And much more!
- Scheduled and unscheduled group "chats"!
- Product bartering for holidays or other gift giving!
- Benefits and opportunities that will pop up as the Mastermind grows... can you add some ideas?
A quick note: although the main topic for
this Mastermind is "wholesaling", we all need information on selling direct to consumers as well... e.g. direct
mail, catalogs, email marketing, website SEO, farmers' markets, fairs, holiday booths, even our own retail stores.
So those are fair game too! Anything that product marketers need to know on their way to success, is a legit
topic for our Mastermind group!
So, What is My Investment in This
'Last Chance at This Price' Opportunity?
And now, the moment you've been waiting for (imagine a drum roll, please, as my
website audio library does not include a drum roll), and the question you want to ask:
"What kind of investment am I looking at?"
Over the years, Malcolm and I were invited to a number of Masterminds (and
joined a couple) in various related industries. Membership fees typically range from $17, $47,
$97, $197 - to even $497 or more PER
MONTH, for high-end programs. And of course, as the membership and value increased over time, so
did the fees!
At this moment, you enjoy the opportunity to be a part of something special. As a
member of the SELLING TO RETAILERS MASTERMIND GROUP, you may lock in the lowest price we will ever offer again ... just $47, that's it! ONE
TIME!... about what I charge for under
30 minutes of private consulting.
With this membership you get UNLIMITED access to my experience, Malcolm's
experience, and all the knowledge of Group members.
AND, you get discounted new
publications, as we unleash them, and those discounts will often be worth more than the
$47 fee. In fact, we guarantee it!
Over time, as participation and value increase, we reserve the right to
increase the fee, or even add a monthly membership...but today you can nail down the $47 figure for the length of
And if the low charter price were not enough, I am offering you even the
$47 at NO RISK whatsoever:
I know you might be hesitant to join,
simply because if - sooner or later - you decide to drop out, you might
feel a bit awkward. After all, by now you are probably familiar with my life's work, we probably connected by
email, and you may even like me (or at least I hope you do!)
If, at any time, you decide not to
continue, I will understand that the Mastermind opportunity is not for you, at least not right now. I will still enjoy
and appreciate you, as a respected co-member of our industry, even if we cannot be Master-Minders
together here. Our friendship is not now, nor ever, in jeopardy, if you go another direction.
But I really hope you will give it a try. Find out now - for about the price of a good sandwich
and soda at a local cafe - if this type of mentoring and sharing is just
what you've been looking for!! AND, I will cheerfully refund the 7 bucks, if you feel you did not get even that
much value! Zero risk to you.
You can't lose on this deal!
So, just to recap:

Monthly Recurring (NO MONTHLY FEES!)

long as you like!

PS ... just a note or two about the platform we will be using for
this membership program. Most will be thrilled, but some might be bummed...
so I want to make sure YOU understand why we use
a FACEBOOK Closed
Group, as the primary membership/mentoring/mastermind
Malcolm and I started looking into a membership program idea a couple years ago.
We researched MANY membership options, including iGroops, Amember, Wild Apricot, and others. We finally settled on
Wishlist Member, which is a WordPress plugin, as it seemed to offer the best combination of features and value.
(Plus, I am well versed in WordPress, so it was easy to learn.) We even built a working prototype with three
However, over the past six months, the booming Facebook community, with
it's ever increasing list of features and ease of use, made us do an "about face" and, combined with our own
comfort level with Facebook, and survey results, we decided to launch the membership mastermind on Facebook, using
their Closed Group feature!
More than any other platform, Facebook offers the following
- Most people are already ON Facebook, so there are no new logins or passwords or URLs to remember, and no new sites
to search out... just click on "Selling to Retailers..." under the GROUPS section of the left column,
while you are browsing the Facebook news feed.
- You can post photos with relative
ease, to ask for feedback on packaging, or suggest a resource, or start a discussion.
- Web links are a snap, and
include a snapshot of the home page, complete with thumbnail photo, for sharing resources, or asking for a
- Even though the membership is CLOSED to outsiders, once you log in to
Facebook, you are already logged into the member area...
all you need to do (as mentioned previously) is click on the group link under GROUPS in the left
- Starting or following a thread is SUPER easy.
- You can turn Notifications on or
- Anyone can start a resource under "DOCS"
that other members can add to.. for example, I have started a
contact form, so people can share contact info, websites, fan pages, etc
on an ongoing basis.
- We can easily support each other's fan pages (and talk about how to get them
- Event announcements can be embedded into Facebook.
- And much more.
Anyway, if you are NOT comfortable yet with Facebook, I can assure you, that the
learning curve, once you are in, is less than a normal membership site. AND THERE IS SO MUCH MORE YOU CAN DO, SEE,
Last chance to join the parade. I REALLY hope you will join, but as soon as we hit
our numbers, the price will go up to $97. Join now
to get the best price we will ever offer... just $47 bucks!
