Sales Blast - Sunday 6/8/14

A great end of a weekend with beautiful weather (no snow) and sunny. It was a very busy week at Bullen getting details finalized for our Airx Training Day coming on June 18th. We are fully booked and ready for 17 attendee’s.

Jack Collins has posted another entry to the Bullen blog that you should find interesting reading:

WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER PRIVATE BRANDING

Here is one excerpt from the post-

MINNESOTA BECOMES FIRST STATE TO BAN CONSUMER HAND & BODY PRODUCTS CONTAINING TRICLOSAN

In recent years, consumer groups have pushed for tighter restrictions on triclosan, arguing that studies suggest that triclosan may cause hormone disruption and increase the development of bacterial resistance. Triclosan has also been identified as a top wastewater contaminant.

Bullen has moved away for soaps with antibacterial ingredients like Triclosan and PCMX because of the same reason.

Part of the Airx Training Day program will be the use of social media and how it can help your business and your sales. I will be doing a short section on using Linkedin to get access to accounts and people that normally would be difficult to reach. Stay tuned for that in future SSB’s.

Have a great day and an even better sales week!
