Go-Dome®, the world’s preeminent manufacturer of portable planetariums and Newtonian 2 mirror and projection systems, relies heavily on a dedicated worldwide network of distributors/partners to spread the word about its products — and to help fulfill the mission of educating people everywhere about the wonders of the night sky.
In return, Go-Dome® rewards its distributors/partners with a competitive pricing structure, as well as opportunities to earn discounts and even free products. Basically, the more Go-Dome® products a distributor sells, the steeper discounts it will receive and the more free products it will earn. Because its distributors/partners essentially represent Go-Dome® in their respective sales territories, the company does not work with just anyone. Before Go-Dome® will consider bringing a company into its exclusive distributor/partner network, the company must prove that it is committed to making a good-faith effort to market Go-Dome® products aggressively.
Potential distributors/partners must submit a one-page proposal detailing how they plan to market Go-Dome’s® products in the upcoming year. Marketing strategies may include (but are not limited to) website presence, e-mail campaigns, trade-show exhibits, showroom displays, brochures, direct-mail campaigns, banners, and print or digital media advertising. The proposal may be submitted as a brief bullet-point summary that includes any links or supplemental materials that may be appropriate.
Potential distributors/partners also must pledge to accumulate at least five Go-Dome® reward points for the upcoming calendar year. (Reward points are awarded based on sales; each Go-Dome® product is assigned a point-value based on its sales price.)
Go-Dome® distributor/partner agreements last for one calendar year, and begin on January 1 of each year. Each year, existing distributors/partners must renew their agreement. If you are interested in becoming a Go-Dome® distributor/partner for 2013, it is not too early to begin considering how you would market the company’s products over the course of next year.
