With the rapid rise of online competition, as well as fast-changing customer expectations, the pressure is on to provide the same kind of support to your customers online as you do in-person. After all, you are the link between your customers and the brands they count on to serve their clientele. They turn to you for what they need to know about the newest product, techniques, and more. How are you translating that relationship online, and how can you avoid being just another “me too”? Join fellow distributors from across the country for PBA’s Distributor Workshop to discuss how to take an authentic, real-you approach to attract, engage and convert new prospects online, as well as build stronger relationships with your existing customers.
