Today I went out “Shop Researching” for 10 hours. First with the man and when he collapsed my partner in shopping crime took over ! That ended up with less researching and more shopping 🙂 And I have some great news to tell!

I approached ONE store with the book during the whole day (the rest was research to source stores.) And now we got ONE more store stocking our book. So exciting. I can’t reveal any details until we’ve got our shipment and all deals are sealed but the scenario was bizarrely easy like this

Me at counter: “Hi…. We just launched this travel journal and would love to stock it in your store”.

Amazing Man at counter: “Mhm…” looking through book “…how much is it?”

Me: “$34.99, wholesale 60%”

Amazing Man at counter” “I’ll take 6 straight away”

Me (shocked & superexcited): “That was easy!!”

Man – SMILES

It was the easiest sale I made in my life. And it is a book I’m coming into a store to sell – without any notice. I think it is bizarre but amazing that the world still works like this. People told us that we need to go through distributors, trade shows, sales men – losing all the personal touch. People were wrong, and I am so happy for that. Go personal relations!
