Project Description

The objective of this project is to facilitate greater visibility into the independent retail market. You will find the sales templates here as well as a button to add a document. This is where you will provide your communication and sales reporting quarterly.

This portal will be used to easily keep track of progress as we move forward with the introduction of the product and company to the network.

Project Discussion 29 Responses to Chandler Honey

Hi Michelle,
I know it’s only been two days since launch, but I’ve only had one company who has reached out for a sample (I’ve spoken with him on the phone and the sample is on its way!). Is this normal to have such a slow uptick? Anything we can do to drive more interest from the get-go?
Cheers,Tique

    Thanks very much! I’ll be reaching out to them today, and I’ll be keeping track of all my interactions via the sales template

    Hi Michelle,
    Thanks for the new leads! I’m still getting used to checking this portal frequently – is there any way I can sign up for email alerts when you message me?
    I’ve attached my sales tracker so far, where I’m keeping detailed notes about my reach outs and follow ups. I’ve only been able to connect with two on the phone, and my emails are going unnoticed. I feel like I’m bothering companies or just reaching the general phone line where all customer inquiries go.
    Any tips or words of motivation for me? Is it normal that only one company has requested a sample?
    Cheers,Tique

    Hi Michelle,
    Could we have a call later this week to discuss how things are going? I’ll update with a spreadsheet shortly, but the bottom line is that I’ve had zero sales from Mr Checkout (despite quite a bit of dilligence on my follow ups). I’m disappointed in the way things are going, and I’d like to see if we can get them on the right track. 
    Cheers,Tique

    Hi Michelle,
    I actually hadn’t updated my file in my last message – I’ve done so now. As you can see, I’ve been more proactively picking up the phone and really following up with leads 5+ times before considering them lost. I’m really putting in the time and work. 
    I’m a one-woman team here who does all the sales/marketing/production/order fulfillment, following up with leads this often is quite draining to my time. I also have sent three samples now (with expensive shipping to the USA) with no traction at all from customers… leading me to worry that people might be signing up for samples with no intention of purchasing. 
    I was also under the impression when joining Mr Checkout’s “Fast Track” program that I would have more sales support, especially with the expensive onboarding fee I paid. Can we please book a call for next week to chat about getting me help?
    Cheers,Tique

      Hi Melissa,
      Looking forward to hearing about the calls your team made for Chandler Honey by the end of this week, as you mentioned on our call on Monday. Fingers crossed on some samples being requested (or even sales!).
      Cheers,Tique

      Hi Melissa,
      How did the calls go last week? Just a reminder that you commited your team to helping me out with 5-10 calls to stores you think would be a good fit (the more the merrier, truthfully). I think a big part of why my call pickup rate is so low is because I’m calling from a Canadian number. 
      Any and all sales help is really needed from my end! Thanks again so much.
      Cheers,Tique

      Hi Michelle,
      Any more leads come through that I can contact? What kind of promotional push can we plan for September coming up?
      Cheers,Tique

    Hi Michelle,
    No responses from the 5 leads you sent me on July 19. I am still in touch with Green Grocer from June 28th – they haven’t made an order yet, but there is a possibility there.
    My new sales sheet for September is attached. I was on vacation a bit during August, so wasn’t following up as much as I normally would (plus I’m sure store owners were on vacation too). September can be more disciplined on my end if I get new quality leads. 
    Cheers,Tique

    Hi Michelle,Thank you very much! I’ve reached out and will update my sales template sometime soon.
    Cheers,Tique

    Hi Michelle,
    I’ve most recently uploaded my sales report in September, and I’ll upload October’s soon. I understand you need reports quarterly, and I try to do them monthly or every two months. 
    At a glance, things are not going well at all. I haven’t sold a single case of honey. I’m wasting my time and money sending out samples, just to be ghosted by seemingly-uninterested buyers. I’m extremely disappointed. 
    Is there a way to be alerted of these communications rather than logging into this portal? Can I sign up for email alerts when you contact me?
    Respectfully,Tique

    December sales tracker is uploaded. Still no sales, but I’m looking forward to picking this up with renewed effort (from both my team and yours) in January 2023.Tique
