In just fewer than six months, DistributorTalk. com has skyrocketed to the top of every promotional product distributors "places to see and be seen." The online discussion forum recently received its 10,000th posting. The site has seen a flurry of memberships and activity since its launch in March 2005.
"The phenomenal growth of this site has been amazing to watch," said Chris Miller, principal founder and head geek in charge of the site. "The comments from the participants about the site have been 100% positive. This site was badly needed in our industry - it opens up communications among colleagues from all over the country."
Miller said that "promotional product distributors act as independent agents, selling imprinted items to their clients. Many of the 20,000 distributor firms in the US and Canada are small, 1-3 person shops, but there are hundreds of larger companies too. Our membership consists of business people that need a place to discuss business in general, and to develop ideas for themselves and their customers."
In addition to product research and business management, the site features specific areas for software tips and support, trade show news, selling techniques, artwork, and case histories.
"Our Product Research forum is by far the most active," Miller added. "But the other areas are busy as well. No matter what kind of problem the promotional products distributor may run into, chances are he'll find an answer fast on DistributorTalk. com"
DistributorTalk. com welcomes and encourages supplier input as well. The industry is served by almost 4,000 suppliers, who manufacture products offered for sale through distributors across the US and Canada. These products range from calendars, pens and office items, to wearables, plastics, healthcare and automotive items. Virtually ANY item can be a promotional product.
