Default Here's what I would say....

Call them on the PHONE and say....

"Hello....I'm with "Smith Distributing"...
we have software/video games and the latest Mexican/American Titles....which are REALLY HOT (put a little passion in your voice) right now and I think these would be of great interest to your customers.

I'd like to stop and show you our line. Would you have a few minutes this afternoon...or would tomorrow be better?

This afternoon! Fine! How about 2pm or would 3 be better?"

They ain't gonna bite you. Remember to put a SMILE on your face when making calls. Know that they are interested in what your product CAN DO FOR THEM!

You might want to write down all the REASONS WHY they should cary your product. The first one being...the product WILL MAKE THEM MONEY...because they've already been PROVEN TO SELL!

Once you get over your first 3 or 4 calls...the "butterflies" will subside and you'll gain confidence. ALL of "us salespeople" have ben there. You'll get thru the "stage-fright" stage and do OK.
