Our tool outperforms any other drill/impact driver on the market today by being safer to operate while also saving operator time and money whenever doing drywalling. We actually want reps/distributors throughout the U.S. Your thoughts?
I checked out your website, l great tool you've got there. I noticed you also have a Facebook page. With that in mind, I have a couple of recommendations:
Your video is really thorough in explaining your product, but you need to get noticed. Create a short 15-20 sec video to post on FB that really grabs people's attention. The use FB push advertising to get that video in the right people's feed. It is really simple, and not that expensive. Happy to show you how if you are unfamiliar.
Second, Home Depot has a local buyer program that allows SOME of their stores to buy product at the local rather than national level. You may want to go by your local HD and speak to the manager about getting your product on the shelf, or even having a product demo day.
HD also has a Diversity Supplier program which includes Veteran owned small businesses. https://corporate.homedepot.com/responsibility/people/supplier-diversity-qualifications
You might also want to reach out to the National Association of State Contractors Licensing Agencies(NASCLA), www.nascla.org, and the United Brotherhood of Carpenters, www.carpenters.org. It probably wouldn't be a bad idea to stop by a couple of UBC union halls with your product.
Thanks for your question! From my experience with my father being a general contractor, word of mouth is the best way to market a product such as yours, but then that turns your inquiry into a chicken or the egg scenario.
My best suggestion, having spoken with my father regarding this exact topic, would be to get to the local Mom and Pop lumbar yards. Many cater to the types of contractor and construction customers you crave for a consumer base.
I hope that this suggestion helped. Feel free to send me a direct message on this site for further inquiry, and I'd be happy to help.
