The information you are about to read is a list of things to look for in a 3M distributor. This will save you money and will help you make a better decision. Check out the following information.
Make sure that the company you are looking at is a 3M distributor. Don’t let your name be associated with another brand.
Get a copy of their business license. You can find this online or in their board of directors. It is required if you are purchasing stock.
Get their feedback. Their customers will tell you everything you need to know. When you find one that is good, write down their name and contact number. You should call them up and ask for more information.
Talk to them face to face. If they are a distributor, they will want to talk to you. Don’t push them. Let them know you are considering them and what they can do for you. Let them know you have had some experience with them and where to find more information.
Take the time to learn about the new things that are available. Maybe they are offering a layaway plan, or an option to rent your machine. Learn what they offer. Get a feel for the new business models and see if it is something you can do.
Ask them if they have any questions. They will most likely have something to say about it. If not, you might as well forget about it. Sometimes the best business you can get is to get one of the less expensive machines for yourself.
Get their business cards. Find a place to go where you can meet with a real person. They are easier to talk to if you have something on paper that you can use.
Even if you don’t like the old business model, don’t ignore it. In the long run, it will be the only one you want to work with. Change the product and get ready to set up an effective plan.
Keep in mind that when you buy stock in a distributor, you get what you pay for. When you have less than what you expected to pay, it is possible that the money is going straight to the company. The problem is that there will be no product and they won’t be able to give you any help.
The information you will receive from your contact information will help you choose between distributors and machines. When you do, you will have made the right choice.
