Dear Sales Rep,
What if your stores could sell 18% more?
We have joined a sales program by Bridge that makes it easier for you to sell our products. You will sell more via your retailers' websites. Bridge's Shop Local service can help all of your retailers.
We recommend that you promote Shop Local to your stores.
Why promote Shop Local?
- You will earn more in commission.
- Help your retailers show more product online.
- Help your retailers save time and money in labor.
- Give your retailers instant, accurate pricing.
- Give your retailers instant, professional product images.
- Give your retailers immediate display of new products and pictures.
What is Shop Local? Shop Local is an e-commerce platform. We upload our products to it, and your retailers can more easily sell our products by using it. Retailers can either use their Shop Local account as just an image library, or turn on an Online Store pre-populated with all of our products.
Via Shop Local, we maintain our product data on your retailers' sites. This helps your stores spend less time and money on website maintenance.
In addition, you can receive a free Shop Local account. Your account will show you what orders are made on your retailers' sites in real time.
Using Shop Local, you can be in more places at once. Instead of having to send price lists to many retailers, Shop Local lets us make a change once and have it appear on 100s of retailers' sites.
What success has Shop Local had for stores?

Will you get commission on Shop Local generated orders?

Does our Shop Local work with a retailer's existing website?
