Default How To Find Sales Reps For Gift Jewelry Line In 40 States

I am currently in charge of finding gift Jewelry sales reps for 40 states. Yes, that is 40 independent sales reps. I have been searching for quite some time and it seems as if most web sites that charge for their services have dead end leads. I also have attended the Atlanta Market Gift Show and noticed that fewer reps are attending.

Are there any mediums to find sales reps that I have not tried that anyone can recommend to me. It is especially hard finding reps that have gift jewelry experience.

Thank you for your help!

Default Let me know if you find some

I own a marketing company that pays a 50% residual of the gross payment and I can't find reps. I am partnered with Microsoft Bing and offer a fantastic product for a fair price.

I have tried craigslist and really didn't get anything but people that want something for nothing.

Default Same Here

I agree, Craigslist and other classifieds seem to bring bum leads. I am ready to bite the bullet on a pay site but some of the sales rep referral sites cost as much as $1000 or as little as $300/month. I am not sure if my companies money will be well spent. What if I still don't get results?

Hello. I'm new to this forum. I found it through a Google search looking for topics on finding sales reps. I too am interested in finding sales reps but for my skin and hair care business. I would be very interested to learn and share methods of locating good sales reps. (Right now I'm only at the "learn stage.:-)
