The Vernon Company, Trade Only and Promo Marketing Announce Partnership
The Vernon Company, the distributor based in Newton, Iowa, announced that it has signed an exclusive three-way partnership with Trade Only and Promo Marketing today at The Vernon Company National Sales Meeting in Savannah, Ga.
The partnership was announced this morning during a breakfast seminar at The Vernon Company's National Sales Meeting. Dave Regan, vice president of sales and marketing for The Vernon Company, said "This is a great opportunity for our sales team and something I've been excited to reveal for months. Trade Only's sites are second-to-none, and give our account executives one more tool to help them remain the best in the industry."
Through the deal all account executives will have access to their own Trade Only STORE websites at little or no charge as The Vernon Company is subsidizing the cost. Each highly customizable site allows the account executive to include their own information and social media accounts. The sites also allow for co-branding where corporate representatives can keep their individual corporate identity including their name and logo. Using Promo Marketing's database, the Trade Only STORE pages have been populated with products from approximately 80 key supplier partners, including BIC Graphic, Leed's and Hit Promotional Products.
"We are really thrilled to be working with such a leading distributor as The Vernon Company," said Julie Henderson, chief operating officer of Trade Only. "They have an excellent group of people on board and are a pleasure to work with. This partnership will allow The Vernon Company, Trade Only and Promo Marketing to continue to grow in 2014 and beyond."
Nichole Stella, group president of Promo Marketing, said "This partnership brings together three of the industry's top players. Combining PromoMarketing.com's database of suppliers and products with Trade Only's best-in-service websites will give The Vernon Company the best resources available in promotional products."
The Vernon Company account executives who received the free websites will have access to them on April 15. For more information, visit www.vernoncompany.com.
