Why is it so frustrating, and hard to find a rep?”

Manufacturers have asked me this question when they want me to look over their product lines. No such a good way to start a positive relationship, sharing that other reps do not want to work with you!

Reps who have been in business for many years, and in most cases carry well over 45 lines, have shared with me that they now most likely not take smaller brands that are unproven and unknown. They do not want the product to get lost among the “Well Branded,” “Better Known” lines in their showrooms.

In a recent post on July 1, 2009, Bebe Bella Designs has been privileged to be featured in a blog on the CuteKid’s website. Throughout this article, they have included a variety of the outfits and accessories that have been very popular with the public. Our clothes are made with simple elegance in mind and are always very fashion forward. We are excited to see that others have been enjoying the products as much as we have and are looking forward to making more comfortable clothes for babies and parents alike.

Keeping your head, hands, feet and neck warm during the cold winter, especially here in Minnesota, is something we all know is imperative to enjoying the long winter months. Trying to take an infant or toddler out in the middle of winter can be a challenge, but if you have the right gear and comfortable accessories, it can be a great time. With Bebe Bella’s soft and warm hats, mittens, scarves and booties, we can make those winter months bearable.

In just two weeks my little niece will turn the big -1- year old. I simply cannot believe how fast time has flown. I remember when she had just been born, she was infinitesimally small. I could fit 10 of her little hands in mine. She was fresh and snuggly and held all the promise that new life affords. And now one year later she is all the more beautiful! She is deserving of the most spectacular of birthday celebrations, alas I will not be in close enough proximity to help facilitate this.

Melissa Sachse, founder, entrepreneur, and mother, understands how important it is to surround your child with the most comfortable and affordable clothing possible. As we all know, putting a child in uncomfortable, scratchy outfit can lead to a miserable day for child and parent. Melissa has created a line of clothing and accessories that will please the child’s senses and still give the parent’s stylish clothing for the families on the go.

A few weeks ago I wrote about key factors that influence why sales reps choose to represent your brand.

Those factors include:
• Good marketing; Branding
• Exclusivity of product
• Appropriate price points
• Focus
• “It” factor

Those points focus on your product. Some other key points that influence why a rep might work with you, or might continue to work with you, focus on, well… you.

The Rep Relationship

Would you let another Mother breastfeed your baby? That is the question I am asking myself after reading a recent article from Parenting Magazine. Apparently it is a growing trend for new Mothers to allow other new Mothers to breastfeed their babies and vice versa. There is also some controversy surrounding this as there are noted benefits and risks to the practice.

So this is my first blog entry, and instead of writing about the industry, per se, I decided to write about freaking out, and then calming down.

No Slippy Hair Clippy is privileged to grace the pages of yet another children’s publication! NSHC products are featured in the May addition of Baby and Kids Magazine! And Ryan Newman once again models our clips beautifully.
