A LETTER

W D M

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK Dear Readers, The Internet of Things is upon us. However, before my socks talk to my toaster, what makes sense in the natural order of the wireless eco-system is consumer adoption of technologies in front of us right now like wireless charging. Investor’s Business Daily recently sited a report that the wireless charging market may surpass $8.5 billion by 2018. With wireless charging standards established, look for widespread consumer adoption in the US. Is your store stocked with smart charging accessories yet? Speaking of, we are thrilled to feature Samung and their new Wireless Charging Pad in our Spring issue. The Samsung Wireless Charging Pad for the Galaxy S 6 has arrived and they were smart to build-in both wireless charging standards, available in both Qi and PMA certified variations. Also check out the Trident wireless charging options covered in the pages to follow. In other trends, there is a rumble of mainstream brands connecting with technology companies adding crossover functionality by embedding tech into everyday product categories like clothing and furniture. Although unconfirmed, there is a rumor floating that Samsung has partnered with IKEA to incorporate wireless charging into your couch. Soon, you can watch Game of Thrones while charging your Galaxy S 6. If only the Doritos could gravitate wirelessly from my pantry – life would be perfect! Just hoping the coins in between my cushions don’t interfere with the electromagnetic field.

In all seriousness, the innovation that is enhancing our lives has only just begun. New handset choices with increasingly advanced smart accessories to match can grow your business exponentially, expanding your product offering in your retail store while making the world more productive! Retailers and distributors are the ‘connectors’ of all things wireless, the core audience at the nexus of the wireless eco-system that thrives most on the constant change in this industry. Most industries would not thrive on such constant change. Like you, we couldn’t imagine any other pace. At Wireless Dealer Magazine, we understand that ‘speed to market’ is measured in nanoseconds! Notably inside this issue, we have highlighted a few new practical handset choices like AMGOO, POSH Mobile, Plum Mobile and Unnecto to entice your retail customers, plus some sound business owner’s advice on how to liquidate dated inventory just in time for spring-cleaning. After all, Spring is here! Wherever you are, we hope the sun is finally shining and sales are blooming. Cheers,

Michelle James CMO

WHAT DO ENTERPRISE, STARTUPS & DRONES HAVE IN COMMON?

030


W D M

WIRELESS DEALERS PREPARE TO DIVE IN. CTIA brought drones and robots onto the show floor last year to test the waters in the wireless eco-system. It was a HUGE hit. We don’t know what it is about drones and robots, but people love them. We’re starting to see really meaningful deployments in certain markets. This is an area that’s experiencing some pretty phenomenal growth on the enterprise side. Drones are being deployed for pipeline inspection, and crop inspection, and all sorts of different applications. Joining forces with CTIA Super Mobility 2015, InterDrone will be bringing 3,000 attendees from the drone industry to the event this fall. There will be a supercharged fly zone and exhibit area at the Rio along with a drone display in the lobby of the Sands Expo, the main show floor site. Shuttle buses will run constantly between the Sands Expo and the Rio during show hours. A must-see exhibit this year!

ROBERT MESIROW | CTIA VICE PRESIDENT AND SHOW DIRECTOR

CTIA – The Wireless Association® announced new strategic partnerships with Microsoft Corp., Media Technology Summit and InterDrone. These visionary companies at the forefront of mobile technology will participate in the most important mobile event of the year, CTIA Super Mobility 2015, September 9, 10 & 11 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas. These new partners will boost CTIA Super Mobility 2015 in IT hardware/ software, drone technology and new media. In addition to hosting specialized conference breakouts and pavilions at the event, these new partnerships will lend their support to a new feature area called Startup City, a trend-spotting showcase that will connect next-gen inventors, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists. “As the industry evolves, so does our event. Our partnerships will continue to evolve as wireless technology continues to create positive disruption. Assuming the future of mobile is the future of everything, CTIA is committed to convening this broad eco-system to drive sales and accelerate the marketplace,” said CTIA Vice President and Show Director, Robert Mesirow.

Mobile CE + Retail Zone represents largest area of the show floor.

Last year, CTIA Super Mobility hit a homerun for attendees, exhibitors, and wireless commerce with the expansion of current wireless verticals giving the show a targeted super experience delivering on current trends while giving retailers a glimpse of future business opportunities. The expanding verticals inside the Connected Life area of the show floor offer experiences in health and fitness technology that are rapidly expanding from wearable fitness bands, clothing, B2B business products and beyond. Connected Life also offers exciting pavilion areas showcasing technology inside autos, the smart home and money.

The future of mobile is the future of everything.

The Mobile CE/Retail Zone represents the largest area of the show floor and of course, is where you will find the Wireless Repair EXPO.

A thousand CMO A-listers.

CTIA Super Mobility 2015 will be picking up the entire Media Technology Summit (MTS) event and parachuting it into Vegas for the show. The Media Technology Summit is focused on bringing in CMOs from the major brands such as Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Oreal, Pepsico, Unilever, and other power brands. Media Technology Summit, a very established event for the last eight years, traditionally held in New York and always right before Advertising Week, brings with it a thousand big brand CMO A-listers along with 40-50 startups.

Microsoft will be supporting the CIO Summit program alongside MobileCON onsite during the show. The Microsoft partnership continues to foster amazing relationships with the CIO community. Having MobileCON, which previously was its own separate event, on the show floor offers one super CIO program. Similar to the Mobile Technology Summit CMO partner program, they, too, are bringing startups. Rob shared, â&#x20AC;&#x153;when you think about the marketplace, you think about how CIOs and CMOs are now working hand-in-glove. This really works out well. They need to communicate with one another and work closely together to do their job efficiently in this new mobile-first world, and both have a keen interest in startups.â&#x20AC;?


Northwestern University McCormick School of Engineering grad students add new perspective.

CTIA has struck a new relationship with Northwestern University where PhDs from Northwestern University McCormick School of Engineering will come together to create a faculty that will collectively produce the thought leadership program for Super Mobility. “The cool thing about this new relationships is that we get these very smart professors who have incredible knowledge of the mobile space. In addition to the support of this powerhouse academic team, we get a team of grad students. The grad students are giving us a new perspective and a really fresh approach to programming during CTIA Super Mobility,” explained Rob.

Poised to showcase 100 startups.

In 2014, CTIA beta-tested an area on the Super Mobility show floor, called Startup City. It was very popular and this year is poised to showcase around 100 startups, tripling the size of last year! “CTIA and our partners will secure networking and pitch opportunities in addition to facilitating really meaningful meetings for the companies in Startup City, whether it’s around funding or talent procurement or technology procurement,” explained Rob. CTIA is devoted to helping the startup community.

MEREDITH ATTWELL BAKER PRESIDENT & CEO OF CTIA — THE WIRELESS ASSOCIATION

Speaking of fresh approaches.

CTIA has redesigned how some of the educational content programming will be delivered onsite. They’ve created some unique designs around staging and using clever audio to keep the conference sessions in a large room on multiple stages, both exciting and intimate at the same time. CTIA has learned over the years that people don’t sit and take copious notes at conventions. They want to dip in and out of conversations that interest them, and then spend their time networking and making deals. In this new setup, attendees can curate an experience as immersive or casual as they want.

The most important time of the year for retailers.

According to Rob, “While we continue to grow the enterprise arena, retailers remain the largest attendee demographic at our event. We want to make sure we’re providing valuable insight for the retail community. Retailers, dealers, and distributors are essential to this event and have been a key component to this event for many years. The Retail Zone tends to be their playground. It’s very robust and still the largest area on the show floor. We have a lot of innovative companies stepping up their exhibit presentations, having realized this has truly become the dealer/retailer/reseller show of the year. The timing, September, works really well for your Wireless Dealer Magazine demographic. Of course, the Wireless Repair EXPO is just the icing on the cake.”

Pavilion marketplace for repair experts.

Repair continues to be a hot area for retailers to grow new revenue streams and to service their customer in a way that they can create loyalty. It’s green, it’s growing new jobs, consumer demand continues to climb; it ticks a lot of boxes in terms of what’s going on in the marketplace for retailers. For independent wireless retailers, distributors and wholesalers, being part of CTIA Super Mobility 2015, the largest mobile event in the Western Hemisphere with visibility into all things mobile lends itself to promising ‘ah-ha’ moments which can have a big impact on future business. Dive in.

The Doâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ts

WE DO

Repair industry job placement & networking services for graduates.

Cell phone repair is a growing industry with great earning potential; however, we understand that not every student wants to open their own repair business. For students looking to market their valuable, high-level skills to repair shop owners, MMDT will soon provide job placement and networking services. Thousands of potential employers will be able to view a list of graduates and their contact information on our website, allowing them to contact students directly with potential job offers for techs who choose to use this service.

Offer unlimited support, post-training.

We understand that five days of intensive training may leave students with questions, which is why we offer unlimited support after training. Students are encouraged to call us anytime with questions, to keep their skills up to date with trusted information.

Believe the most valuable aspect of training is hands-on.

As one of the top mobile device repair training services in the country, we spend thousands of dollars on training materials. We do this to provide students with a thorough hands-on experience, always with enough room for trial and error without concern. Mengtor is one of the largest cell phone parts supplier in the US, with plenty of resources to spare, if students mistakenly destroy hardware while attempting repairs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we got you covered! Trainers will ensure that repair mistakes are promptly corrected, and students leave feeling confident in their range of repair abilities.

Provide access to large inventory of training materials.

Hands-on training is the only way to learn how to repair cell phones, which is why we provide students access to our large inventory of training materials from iPads and iPhones, bar phones, smart phones, LCD assemblies, flex cables, charging ports, and much more. This allows students to practice real-life repair scenarios using the highest quality tools and hardware.

The Do’s and Don’ts

Believe you can be an expert of anything by watching a video.

WE DON’T

Cell phone repair requires a high level of skill that only comes from proper training. It is not as simple as ordering parts from eBay and following instructions on YouTube, thereby yielding unprofessional results with potentially damaged components or incorrectly matched hardware. As a cell phone repair technician, it is common to encounter customers requesting the installation of hardware they ordered online, perhaps thinking they could perform the repair themselves. This is why we ONLY offer hands-on training, allowing students to gain the expert-level knowledge that comes from making mistakes and improving skills in a controlled environment. If repairing phones was as simple as watching online videos, cell phone repair shops would go out of business! This is why we DON’T offer online training.

Hire technicians that are not qualified.

All of our trainers have a minimum of 8 years of repair experience, including ownership and operation of repair shops. Properly training students requires our trainers’ hands-on participation and expertise. We DON’T hire technicians from Craigslist – that’s for sure!

Force students to sign silly non-disclosures or non-complete documents.

Being a professional repair training center, we are definitely not afraid of sharing our knowledge with our students. We want our students to be successful in the repair industry, by having the knowledge and skills needed to open a cell phone repair shop, or even a cell phone repair training center. Therefore we DON’T force our students to sign ANY non-disclosure or non-compete documents before attending our training. Our goal is to use our wealth of knowledge and experience to train every student to be successful and capable of performing the highest quality repairs.

RE-INVENTING MOBILE DEVICE CASES In 2010, a family-owned manufacturer of mobile device cases did the unthinkable. Within months of releasing its first products, two of them were named among CNET’s “Top 10 Tough iPhone 4 Cases.” Trident Case received high praise from technology media, and the company rapidly captured a huge piece of a market that’s seemingly flooded with case manufacturers. Competitors were left wondering: how?

Today, Trident Case continues to stand out in a $1 billion smartphone and tablet case industry. The company’s portfolio now includes more than 1,000 SKUs, supporting more than 100 devices and shipping them all over the globe. But while Trident Case has won industry awards year after year for the extreme durability of its products, the secret to its success is more complex.

What consumers really want in a case.

Seventy-five percent of smartphone users put cases on their devices, according to The NPD Group. That should be no surprise to retailers. As new devices cost upwards of $700 to replace off-contract, consumers can’t afford to break their phones. But there’s more to this picture, Trident Case discovered. The company took an extensive look at its customers to find out who they were and what they really wanted in a case. Dependability is a must, of course – Trident cases are among the strongest and most durable in the industry. But equally important, the case has to fit each consumer’s unique needs and lifestyle. That’s where Trident Case truly stands out from traditional case manufacturers.

Standing out in a $1 billion industry.

Trident Case provides dependable case solutions that help people to LIVE WITH IMPACT – our company mantra, based on the belief that every consumer should be able to go about their normal routine without worrying about their device. As a family-owned company, we’re passionate about helping our customers lead more fulfilling and impressive lives – with cases and accessories that go hand-in-hand with those goals, not impede them. Our team of product designers, manufacturing specialists, marketers and leadership are obsessive about technology, the future and building products that fit our customers’ lives and careers.

TABLETS

Beyond just our innovative products, we stand out for our leadership in philanthropic programs as well as our ongoing efforts to bolster eco-conscious manufacturing in the USA.

Innovative product.

Trident Case’s portfolio includes 6 different product series, sold at retailers across North America and Europe and online at www.tridentcase.com. We support a broad range of devices from manufacturers including Apple®, Samsung®, LG®, Huawei®, Motorola®, and others. Numerous colors, case designs and form factors allow customers to choose the level of protection they need without compromising the look of their devices. Our newest products provide solutions to help people make the most of their lives at work, play and at home. We’ve designed our cases and accessories to be indispensable tools not only for personal consumers, but also for organizations in multiple industries, including education, government, transportation, healthcare, construction and retail, among others. From charging carts, which can charge up to 30 tablet cases at once, to wireless charging options, antimicrobial cases, and other innovations on the way, Trident Case continues to raise the bar in this industry, working constantly to address the changing needs of customers.

Made in the USA.

Today’s consumers care where their products come from – and so do we. Trident Case has taken pride in bringing manufacturing back to the U.S.A. While we manufacture both in China and in the U.S., we continue to increase our U.S.-based production capacity so that we can reach our goal of producing all of our products in the U.S.A.

More than just a case company.

We believe that by building capacity to produce products in the U.S., we help create American jobs and grow stronger communities. Plus, by manufacturing domestically, we can lower the minimum product order and shorten lead times, while maintaining the same product quality and price.

Green protection.

We believe that mitigating environmental impact is not only responsible, but also a necessity of modern manufacturing. Trident Case builds its products using bio-enhanced, plastic-based materials that are biodegradable, compostable and recyclable. As we continue to design new innovations, we are constantly looking for solutions that make our products and manufacturing processes more eco-friendly.

Military tested.

The brute strength, durability and dependability of our cases has been a key differentiator for Trident Case from the very beginning, and we have no plans to change that. Our toughest cases are engineered to meet Military Standards (MIL-STD-810G), providing our customers the highest levels of protection.

Customizable.

When it comes to protective covers, consumers want more than just a piece of plastic attached to their devices. They want cases that are extensions of their identities, lifestyles and careers. We design our products to adapt to customers’ lives through add-on accessories, varying levels of protection and options to customize colors and designs.

Giving back.

A closer look at Trident Case reveals that we are more than just a manufacturer of cases – and that’s part of the appeal to customers who research our products, as well our partners who help distribute them. As our Founder and President Lip Yow has said, “We’re a small company with a big heart doing much more than you expect.” When we create new products – whether it’s a case, charging pad, mount, adapter or other accessories – we carefully design these products as solutions that help our customers make the most of their lives and professions. Some retailers call this one of our unique selling points. We call it part of our identity.

For more information on Trident Case solutions and distributor opportunities, please contact us at: sales@tridentcase.com or marketing@tridentcase.com.

Supporting important causes and organizations is just as important to us as making great cases. Trident Case is proud to support multiple charities and community projects. We donate product, time, services and monetary donations, big and small, to local and national organizations.

TOPLESS TECH. As the Summer weather heats up, smartphone users are turning up the heat for the latest in topless water-friendly tech. Australian brand, Dog & Bone says, with its release late last year of Wetsuit, the first topless direct touch screen waterproof case for the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, demand in the US is at an all-time high, as the temperatures continue to rise.

Teaming up.

Dog & Bone Founder, Mr Lee Ranchod, said its partnership with Wireless Xcessories Group is key to fulfilling the growing US demand for its tech innovations.

THE BRAND THAT IN 2013 LAUNCHED

“U.S. CONSUMERS ARE TECH SAVVY, AND LOVE HAVING THE LATEST IN MOBILE GADGETRY. WE GET MORE PUBLIC ENQUIRY FROM THE UNITED STATES THAN ANY OTHER MARKET AROUND THE WORLD,” MR RANCHOD SAID.

ITS WETSUIT INNOVATION – THE WORLD’S FIRST TOPLESS DIRECT TOUCH SCREEN WATERPROOF SMARTPHONE CASE, AND LAST YEAR THE WORLD’S FIRST SHOCKPROOF WIRELESS CHARGING CASE – MILITARY TESTED, CONSUMER ELECTRONICS BRAND, DOG & BONE, IS PARTNERING WITH U.S. MOBILE ACCESSORY DISTRIBUTOR AND SOLUTIONS EXPERT, WIRELESS XCESSORIES GROUP, TO HELP MEET LOCAL DEMAND THROUGH SUMMER AND BEYOND.

DOG & BONE IS CURRENTLY REPRESENTED WITH DISTRIBUTORSHIP IN MORE THAN 40 COUNTRIES INCLUDING USA, CANADA, FRANCE, JAPAN, FINLAND, THE UK, AUSTRALIA AND SWEDEN.

076

“AND AS THE TEMPERATURES RISE, SO DOES THE DEMAND FOR THE LATEST IN SMARTPHONE WATERPROOF TECH. THE REASON WHY EFFECTIVE DISTRIBUTION CHANNELS ARE KEY. “U.S. CONSUMERS HAVE TOLD US THEY LOVE THE DESIGN, FUNCTIONALITY AND ORIGINALITY OF OUR PRODUCTS – THE ONE COMMON COMPLAINT LAST YEAR IS THAT THEY’D LIKE TO SEE THEM MORE READILY AVAILABLE IN LOCAL STORES. “OUR RECENT PARTNERSHIP WITH WIRELESS XCESSORIES GROUP IS GREAT NEWS FOR LOCAL CONSUMERS AS IT DELIVERS ON THEIR NEED TO MORE READILY BE ABLE TO SEE, TOUCH AND FEEL OUR INNOVATIONS, AND PURCHASE THEM FROM LOCAL STORES WITH LOCAL CUSTOMER SERVICE AND ATTENTION.” The patent pending Wetsuit waterproof rugged case enjoys a direct touchscreen, is waterproof to two metres, dirt proof, sand proof, snow proof, shock proof, meets and exceeds Military standards to help withstand the toughest of drops to two metres, and enjoys an IP68 rating – the highest level of ingress protection from water and dust. Mr Ranchod said iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users can enjoy a slimmed down Wetsuit offering a bolstered triple layer of shock protection in addition to its smart direct touchscreen waterproof tech. “MOBILE USERS OFTEN COMPLAIN FRONT ENCLOSED WATERPROOF CASES CAN RESULT IN INCORRECT LETTER KEYS OR NONSENSICAL TEXT MESSAGES BECAUSE THE FILM COVERING THEIR PHONE’S SCREEN INTERFERE. THEY


ALSO COMPLAIN THE SCREEN FILM APPEARS GRUBBY WITH USE,” MR RANCHOD SAID. “FORTUNATELY ADVANCEMENTS IN WATERPROOF SMARTPHONE TECHNOLOGY WITH WETSUIT’S DIRECT TOUCH SCREEN OVERCAME THESE ISSUES AS THERE IS NOTHING STANDING IN THE WAY OF THE SCREEN, SO CONSUMERS CAN ENJOY ALL THE FEATURES OF TOP-LEVEL PHONE PROTECTION WITHOUT THE TOUCHSCREEN USABILITY ISSUES. “WE HAVE TAKEN OUR IPHONE 6 AND 6 PLUS WETSUIT RANGE A STEP FURTHER, BY ADDING TWO VALUABLE ADDITIONAL FEATURES – A TRIPLE LAYER OF SHOCK PROTECTION FOR MORE DURABILITY, AND A SOFT RUBBER-TOUCH EXTERIOR.

“WATERPROOF CASES TEND TO BE COVERED IN PLASTIC, YET PLASTIC CAN BE SLIPPERY IN THE HANDS WHEN WET AND LESS APPEALING IN TEXTURE. “THE RUBBER-TOUCH PROVIDES FOR A BETTER GRIP IN AND OUT OF WATER AND JUST FEELS BETTER TO HOLD. “WITH CLEVER ENGINEERING WE HAVE ADDED THIS AND THE TRIPLE LAYER OF SHOCK PROTECTION – YET SLIMMED DOWN OUR DESIGN FOR ITS SLIMMEST FORM YET.”

The SRP for the Wetsuit waterproof rugged case for iPhone 6 including a scratch resistant screen protector and headphone adaptor is USD $79.95 and for the Wetsuit iPhone 6 Plus is USD $89.95.

078


W D M

“DOG & BONE’S BUSINESS MODEL TO INNOVATE THROUGH EMERGING TECHNOLOGY AND DESIGN IS WHAT MADE THE BRAND SO APPEALING FOR US AND WHY WE BELIEVE DOG & BONE HAS TAKEN OFF GLOBALLY IN A RELATIVELY SHORT SPACE. “THE BRAND’S INNOVATION WITH ITS FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND WETSUIT WATERPROOF, RUGGED CASE, AND BACKBONE WIRELESS CHARGING AND BATTERY INNOVATION, SUPPORTS THIS VISION. WE ARE EQUALLY EXCITED ABOUT DOG & BONE’S UPCOMING INNOVATIONS INCLUDING ITS KEYLESS BLUETOOTH PADLOCK, LOCKSMART.”

Soaring faster.

With the wireless mobile charging market predicted by researchers to soar, Dog & Bone’s patent pending Backbone broke new ground for wireless mobile charging technology by addressing lifestyle issues of speed, protection, aesthetics and usability of traditional options. Released in June 2014 initially for the iPhone 5s/5, Backbone delivers the world’s first shock proof wireless mobile charging case – military tested for durability, with fast wireless charging – even faster than a standard cable charge and with a combination of user-friendly and aesthetic design features not previously seen with this technology.

The smart Qi-compatible and Made for iPhone certified Backbone, which includes a battery module for additional power, was named Award Winner at the prestigious Good Design Awards within the highly competitive Consumer Electronics category, and is now also available for the iPhone 6.

New gear.

Dog & Bone is now gearing up to release yet another patent pending innovation in coming months – its keyless Bluetooth padlock, LockSmart, which can be paired to a Bluetooth 4.0 enabled smartphone to lock and unlock without any keys, and with shared access and user tracking features.

A NEW CLASS OF SCREEN PROTECTION

HAS ARRIVED. ScreenGuardz Pure® + The Crown™

BODYGUARDZ, LEADER IN MOBILE DEVICE PROTECTION, ANNOUNCES THE AVAILABILITY OF SCREENGUARDZ PURE + THE CROWN; THE SOLUTION FOR EDGE-TO-EDGE SCREEN PROTECTION FOR ROUNDED EDGE DEVICES.

080


W D M

ScreenGuardz Pure

The Crown

A patent-pending exclusive from BodyGuardz, The Crown is a custom-molded aluminum rim that has been engineered to protect the curved screen edges of today’s hottest mobile devices. It is designed to fit seamlessly around ScreenGuardz Pure and flush with the edges of the phone. The Crown is an elegant, protective solution unlike anything on the market.

“WE ARE EXTREMELY EXCITED FOR OUR CUSTOMERS TO GET THEIR HANDS ON THE CROWN. IT’S A BEAUTIFUL PRODUCT THAT DOESN’T JUST MASK THE ISSUE OF ROUNDED EDGE SCREEN PROTECTION, BUT SOLVES IT,” SAID KIRK FELLER, PRESIDENT AND CEO OF BODYGUARDZ.

Traditional glass screen protection has run into issues with rounded-edge devices because of difficulty getting glass to bend and fit each device. Until now, the solution has been to decrease the size of the screen protector and deal with a significant gap between where the screen protector ends and the edge of the phone; or increase the size of the screen protector which leaves a “halo,” or overhang where the screen protector does not adhere to the curvature of the screen. Both options leave the edges vulnerable, exposed to cracks or chips. ScreenGuardz Pure + The Crown is available now for the iPhone 6 ($39.95) and iPhone 6 Plus ($44.95). ScreenGuardz Pure + The Crown for the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be available in April.

It’s obvious that social media has exploded around us. Photo and video social sharing

apps, like Instagram with over 300 million users, have become the primary way people now share their daily lives with friends and family. Instagram users alone upload over 70 million photos and videos per day! Remember the 2014 Oscars hosted by Ellen DeGeneres? The “selfie-taking” was more than just a script gimmick. Ellen’s encouragement to share the #oscars caught the imagination of millions and generated a nearendless stream of pictures and engagement around the world. We’re all using our smartphones every day to capture everything, not only our morning coffee, our day at the beach, our grandmother’s cat, but our friends’ trip to Venice, to our favorite artist’s latest creation. You get the point. Social media is pervasive and we’re hooked. Whether you’re an Instagram user or not, the fact is that real-time photos and videos from friends, family, celebrities and your favorite brands are omnipresent, thanks in large part to smartphones.

THE BAD, THE UGLY, THE GOOD. TO GET TO

[ by LAURETTE VERES ] Tips on Sourcing Merchandise Slated for Liquidation Traditional liquidation methods for wireless products can involve layers of middlemen, red tape, product poaching and price mark ups before buyers even have access to the inventory. Luckily this old-school way of doing things is slowly evolving into an efficient B2B model where buyers have access to returned, overstock and excess merchandise directly from the retailer or manufacturer through a customized online marketplace. This presents a level playing field for small and medium sized buyers and allows a direct relationship between buyer and retailer via a transparent platform.

089


Here are some tips on what to look out for when sourcing merchandise that has been slated for liquidation. TIP

1

Make sure you are buying straight from the source. By purchasing directly from the retailer, you can assume that 1) there is no middleman involvement, 2) there are no price mark ups and, 3) that the retailer wants to move the inventory as quickly as possible. Keep in mind that liquidators buy the inventory from the retailer and then have to sell it for more in order to make a profit.

Make sure you have access to a constant supply of product.

TIP

It’s important to have enough product(s) to satisfy the needs of your customers. Make sure that the marketplace you are sourcing inventory from has a continuous supply of the product categories you need. By purchasing directly from the retailer or manufacturer – especially one that operates in the wireless space and/or sells the product – you are guaranteed a constant supply to keep your customers happy.

TIP

Purchase via a credible platform.

3

Know exactly what you are buying and whom you are buying from. A credible auction marketplace will provide thorough product descriptions, images, accurate condition codes, real-time bidding updates and a direct line between buyer and seller.

Differentiation. Opportunity. Those two words can mean the difference between business success and failure. Wireless retailers today live in an industry of extreme commoditization. Our industry – and our livelihoods – are dominated by four wireless carriers, two (OK, maybe three) operating systems, and cellular devices that are manufactured by a relatively small handful of companies – all of which make products that despite marketing claims are far more similar than different.

DON’T BELIEVE [ ] ME JUST WATCH by CURTIS BURKHART

110

Yes, you sell phone cases, too. And from my own personal shopping experience, it seems that there are literally dozens of similar options at every possible price point. So it’s only logical that margins on these products are, shall we say, seriously squeezed. Of course, there are other wireless accessories, the most common of which include ear buds, Bluetooth and corded headsets, hands-free car systems, and Bluetooth and wired external speakers. Again, these are the same things I see in almost every store I go into. Now it’s bad enough that there are tens of thousands of independent wireless retailers just like you selling the same products you are. But combine this with the fact that you also compete with the major chain and online retailers who have significantly more buying power to negotiate lower costs (and more co-op/MDF support), and you begin to realize the challenge in front of you: You all are competing for the same customers with the same products at the same price points.


W D M

Curtis Burkhart is the director of sales and marketing for SureCall, a leading maker of cellphone signal boosters and the inventor and patent-holder for 5-band booster technology. He can be reached at curtis@surecall.com.

Opportunity is the key.

Opportunity is finding something you can provide, either a product or service, to supplement or complement your basic product line that differentiates you from the guys down the street. Some of you already do this by providing repair services, buyback programs, or your own phone insurance programs. But one line of products that has flown completely under the radar is cellular signal boosters. And I’m not talking about those useless little patches you stick on your phone for better reception. Those are like snake oil. I’m referring to FCCcertified products that are proven to improve cell reception in cars, homes, apartments, small offices, and even large commercial spaces, as well. Let’s face it, almost everyone has some complaints about cell reception, because regardless of what the carriers claim about coverage, their calculations do not take into account the many real-life obstacles that get in the way, including hilly terrain, trees and dense foliage, and construction materials (such as concrete, steel, insulation, and even energy-efficient window treatments). Granted, selling these is not as simple as selling a cell phone or a Bluetooth device. But by learning just a little bit about these boosters, you can learn enough to differentiate yourself and your business by becoming a true resource for all your customers who complain about cell reception.

What are cellular signal boosters?

In a nutshell, cellular signal boosters are small amplifiers. They work by capturing the signal from a cell tower – even a very weak one – increasing the strength of that signal, and sending it throughout the home, car, or office. They also work in reverse, capturing the signal from your cell phone, boosting that signal, and sending it with enough power to reach back to the cell tower. So essentially, boosters capture weak or blocked signals and boost the signal strength to create a more robust, reliable connection, and then resend that boosted signal. And they can cover areas up to 20,000 square feet.

What differentiates you from other wireless retailers? How can you continue to compete and keep the lights on? 111


W D M

There are booster models that work individual carriers, and there are boosters that work for all carriers simultaneously. Some models support the 2G and 3G bands, while others support 2G, 3G and 4G. Each booster unit can support multiple simultaneous users, and each booster kit, whether it’s for a vehicular unit or a home/office unit, comes complete with everything needed for a complete installation. Knowing only what I’ve outlined above is enough to set you apart from almost all of your competitors. And knowing only that gives you a sellable solution that you can more aggressively market to consumers and businesses in your area. But the leading booster manufacturers can also give you additional training and support to make you even more comfortable selling these products. True, some installation may be needed, and some consumers are DIY-types who will want to do it themselves. But many will want/need help installing a system, and that just creates even greater opportunities. Maybe you develop your own installation team. Or maybe you partner with a local contractor to do the installations. Whatever the level of participation you desire, the opportunities are there for you. And they are there with margins that actually support running a successful business.

112

Being different is a good thing. Being different in retail — taking new roads that are less traveled — can give you a competitive edge that can be the difference between struggling to keep the lights on (or worse) and creating a solid foothold in a secure future.
