"Yesterday I was working at a trade show for our biggest Distributor customer in Southern California. They invite all the pet product retailers to attend. A believing colleague and I were commenting about how our sales were down 16% compared to YTD last year. WE DECLARED that this trade show would be the boost we needed to get our numbers up.
Good daily sales for a show like this are $40-50k. By the time we were 75% through the day we were at 40k.
Then a customer who was NOT EVEN AT THE TRADE SHOW contacted his sales rep for the distributor and said if we would give him an extra 5% off he would order $450k of our products.
I got my boss on the phone on a Sunday and after some back and forth we made the deal..which ended up being $250k!!!
So we ended the show with about $300k in sales, which is about TEN TIMES THE AVERAGE OF WHAT WE DO IN SALES AT A TRADE SHOW. Even the VP of our a distributor customer ( who has 30+ years in the business) was amazed.
God responded to our simple declaration.
When the new numbers come in we should now be up 35% compared to YTD last year.
