ER and Carteblanche, re negoitate thier Independant trade agreement, and sign a new deal that takes the partnership to 2020, with minimun target goals set which will see Carteblanche enhancing thier sales force penetration....Re launch to take place on 18th July 2018 at the Carte Blanche Spring Sales conference - Jen and Martin to attend.
Thanks to everyone’s for their support with our prep for this week’s trading review at Tesco. Overwhelmingly positive feedback from the buying team, soundbites being:
Emotional Rescue considered amongst Top 5 category partners
We were the ‘Star of the Show’ in this year’s Father’s Day range (In what was a tough season for many)
Loved new Virtual Safari & OTC Captions refresh + Seriously Just Kidding
Chris and Mark will follow up all sales opportunities over the coming days, with Sara & Lauren (The Buyers) planning to come across to ER Towers in August.
Our first royalty statement for book sales has just arrived!
Royalties on sales for the last quarter of last year were £104,000
(combined for first 4 books!)
Following on from Toni and Mark's visit to UKG's head office yesterday, news reached us that WHSmith had decided to add Seriously Just Kidding to their main 2018 Christmas plan. Traditionally ranges need to be established in Everyday before introducing to seasons.
The everyday range has also been moved up the test schedule to April, so all the noises are very positive.
Thanks to everyone involved in the concepts, range launch, boards and presentation material. (Special thanks also to efforts in turning around Seriously Test POS this week)
Dare I say it's been a very 'Serious' week.....
