What are the requirements?
IN-STOCK INVENTORY - MERIK Authorized Dealers must prominently display five or more different current MERIK Safes that are representative of the MERIK Safe product line in order to best convey MERIK Safe standard features, and construction details. An exception may be made, at the discretion of the MERIK SAFE Sales Manager.
MARKETING - MERIK Authorized Dealers must service the leads MERIK distributes. Service is evaluated by the following elements:
- "MERIK" or "MERIK Authorized Dealer" signage or banners must be prominently displayed.
- MERIK Authorized Dealers should accommodate customers by providing installation services or maintaining a current list of competent installers in their area.
SALES LEAD FOLLOW UP - MERIK Authorized Dealers must provide prompt service to the customer and trade leads that MERIK provides. MERIK does not mass distribute sales leads to multiple dealers. Therefore, each lead is expecting to hear back from that specific MERIK Authorized Dealer.
Prompt service will reflect well on MERIK Safe, the MERIK Authorized Dealer and the Nationwide Network of Authorized Dealers.
COMMITMENT - Commit to the following five points:
- Set Business Goals
- Commit to growing your business
- Strategically plan your in-store inventory
- Visualize Success
- Stay Committed and Motivate your staff
It is fairly simple to set a goal. Reaching a goal is typically not as easy. Commitment is sticking with your goal, seeing it through to the end, even when things get challenging! The difference between success and failure comes down to your resolve and following through on your commitments.
