Hey Michelle.  Would you send me the email blast please.  I would like to see it before you send it out.  Thank you

Or I am guessing that you are just going to email out the digital sell sheet?

    So I have to admit that I am quite disturbed by this.  I paid a lot of money for qualifying leads and not only have we left out the majority of my target market by only looking at boutiques and not sports shops, but this eblast has only returned a total of 9 leads.  
    I have no problem with sales calls and Mr. Checkout’s required reporting- however if I understand your message, you did not even eblast companies that are associated with Mr. Checkout?  That makes no sense, I was told that there were 150,000 different gift retailers that are able to be accesed through Mr. Checkout.  Even if the eblast only went out to the 5,832 people on your member directory to only have 9 possible leads is still a disturbingly low number.  
    So my question is, what did I actually pay for?  Did I pay for a member directory that I will have to reach out and contact myself (which is fine I get it, nothing is perfect), or did I pay for what I was told Mr. Checkout had wich is the possibilty of reaching almost 200,000 different nationwide business that include my target markets and getting my product in the eyes of buyers nationwide? 
    I need to clarify the answer so that way I can adjust and plan accordingly for my own business purposes.  I was under a different impression on what Mr. Checkout was capable of more than just 9 bridal boutique leads.

    I have reached out to all the people that you have listed.  Mixed results so far.  It is all documented in the excel spreadsheet.  I have sent out a few samples as well.  Generally the majority of the places I have contacted are not interested due to proximity of local fishing spots and or more urban environments.  The boutiques are not a great bet until the christmas time frame and most boutiques are really only doing clothes and bags.  So it is not going well which I knew would happen because they are not really the target market like I stated last week.

      Ya I will get that in today.  I was going through the directory page by page I have changed around some of my search terms in regards to who I contact or spend my time on researching.

      Ya there was some confusion on the Allison Wonderland one.  I called and spoke to a woman and was given a different location to contact cliff at.  I was still unable to get ahold of him, I will try later this week.  I did send him an email, but just like the intial email blast I imagine that the majority of emails these businesses are getting are going directly into the spam folder and not being seen.

So I have come to the conclusion that I need the sporting goods store leads.  I have major sales going on in the sporting goods stores outside of your provided directory and frankly just don’t see a point in even trying to contact the leads you have provided.  
The toy store and boutique leads you provided might come into play around the Christmas season but for now sporting goods stores and outdoor stores are booming, and that is where I am focusing my sales.  
So I have submitted my call log and hopefully Mr. Checkout can provide me with a sporting goods directory.

I just sold $ 10,000 worth of product in prep for the christmas season.  I will not be folllowing up with these onsey twosy shops, they can follow up with me.  My product has never been seen before in an over a $700 million dollar a year industry.  Lol it is hitting big time and if mr. Checkout wants to be a part of that then cool if not then I just got scammed out of my money.  
Get me the leads that will actually sell.
