Industry Vet Kim Airs Launches Consulting Business
LOS ANGELES — Industry vet Kim Airs is now offering manufacturing and retail consulting services, which she has coined The Kim Airs Sales Boost.
The Kim Airs Sales Boost is designed to provide manufacturers of adult toys and products a personal contact at the distributor and retail level without the expense of a full time staff member. As the president of The Kim Airs Sales Boost, Airs brings more than 20 years of sex toy sales experience to manufacturers, distributors and retail stores.
Airs says she will work closely with smaller, independent manufacturers who may not be able to afford an on-the-road salesperson.
“Whether it is a single store, larger chain or distributors, these retailers and wholesalers may not be aware of the brand and the benefits and features of their products,” Airs says.
By utilizing Airs’ services, manufacturers can have a presence with distributors and in retail stores without the cost of a full-time sales employee.
CEO Ronnie Coutu of North Carolina-based Helix Toys said, "Kim Airs recently shared her depth of knowledge with my buyers and sales associates here at Helix Toys. She has keen insight on how to sell sex toys and other adult products and can easily relate to both store owners and their sales staff. Plus, she's funny! I can't wait to have her visit Helix again."
Airs said, “I have been in every aspect of the adult products sales channel with over 10 years of experience with manufacturers after owning my own successful retail store for over a decade. I know representing a manufacturer and training at both the distributor and store level supports not only the manufacturer but the bottom line of the retailer as well. And retailers love the knowledge I share with their staff for increasing sales by training on upselling and cross selling techniques.”’
Veteran sales executive Lynn Swanson added, "Take it from me, no one promotes adult products like Kim. I have always said, ‘Just put something into Kim Airs' hands and she'll sell it!’ With her humor and intelligence, she can effortlessly demonstrate product at both the distributor and the retail level which can easily result in more sales for all companies involved."
With The Kim Airs Sales Boost, new manufacturers can present their products directly to store buyers without the expense of a trade show booth.
