Your source for today's leading brands
Epic International is a full-service sales and marketing company dedicated to representing our manufacturers in special markets and other non-traditional sales channels. Our customers include incentive companies, promotional products distributors, ad/marketing agencies and advertising specialty distributors.
To our customers we provide active lifestyle products from leading brands backed by outstanding customer service and attention to detail. One of our greatest assets is the flexibility we can provide in program development, including product recommendations, price points, assistance with creative and fulfillment options. We will drop ship to individual consumers and we have the capability to customize products with imprinted logos or other artwork.
Direct mail catalogs carry products from multiple manufacturers. These catalogs can have a closed clientele or could also be open to consumers.
A company will give product to a retailer for ordering additional quantities of the company’s product to support a promotion. The loader product is either raffled off at store level or kept by the retailer. Loaders are very popular with soft drink manufacturers and grocery/convenience store promotions.
Epic excels in credit card rewards and mileage (or points) programs. Consumers accumulate points (or miles, or dollars) and redeem for merchandise awards. Many of these programs utilize print (or web-based) merchandise catalogs, either generic or specifically tailored to the program.
Includes corporate sales incentive and recognition (service award) programs. Many of these programs utilize print (or web-based) merchandise catalogs, either generic or specifically tailored to the program.
The cornerstone of Epic’s success is the unique ability to provide a diverse array of services to our manufacturers. For the majority of our manufacturers, we function as the national sales force for the premium/incentive channel, with 14 sales groups providing complete coverage in all key markets. However, for some of our manufacturers, we also manage the retail, direct mail, specialty and internet channels. As an outsourced sale and marketing firm, we will take on the level of responsibility that will benefit the manufacturer the most.
Trade Show Management
We generate further exposure for our manufacturer’s products through promotion/display at trade shows, including the Motivation Show and other industry-specific events.
We have an in-house design department that creates customized presentations and other sales support materials. We also develop our own marketing collateral materials specifically tailored to the premium/incentive channel.
The premium channel has different requirements than the standard retail channel. We have trained specialists working exclusively for this specific channel freeing up members of your staff so they can focus on areas of higher return. We assume responsibility for purchasing, order tracking, customer inquiries and inventory control.
The premium channel can add 400-5,000 new customers. We take responsibility for the billings, thus freeing your finance department from approving credit, tracking ord
ers and collecting payments from accounts that can do as little as $500.00 in sales. We also pay rep commissions, thereby reducing the potential workload even further.
