Same "O" same "O"
« on: December 16, 2005, 07:13:46 PM »

Here is a message I sent to X10. Does anyone
feel the same way as I.

Why do you email the same sale items (maybe
a little different occasionally) each day.
Being a dealer I am interested :
1. 1 email with the X10 deals and how long
it is in effect.
2 New items for deals for contractors.
Basically you treat the contractors the same
as the ordinary person. Being a contractor
and installer I would really appreciate a
different advertising then "get now", don"t
delay" gimmicks. Thanks.
Maybe I would order more if there were
different deals for contractors instead of
the same over and over again. Maybe other
contractors feel the same way

Jonesy,

I agree with you!

Would you - and other X10 installers - be
interested in a daily, bi-weekly, or monthly
newsletter especially for X10 contractors?
What kinds of deals are you looking for? We
are looking at "X10 Weekend Warrior" kits
and popular kits with extra modules for
a "contractor supply" kit, and finally - a
marketing kit with flyers, counter signs and
decals.
Let me know what you think - I would love to
hear it! You can call anytime at 800-675-
5887 or email at kellyp@x10.com.

Kelly,

I am also interested in special contractor deals
and newsletters.  I think most likely a bi-weekly
newsletter would be most beneficial to me as I still
need to know the most current info.  And
contractor kits would be great!  All the things you
mentioned would be superb (weekend warrior
kits, contractor kits, marketing kits).  I hope this
could be expedited as I'm sure all the contractors
would love special kits to be available as soon as
possible.

As a new Af/Con...b I would have to say I
find much to agree 2with you nJonsey. There
is no incentive to really invest at retail
prices just to get started, unless you are
already big enough for 5k orders.

I have to admit that as a new    AF/CON itís
hard to justify paying retail just to work
hard at starting a hopefully profitable
enterprise. Iíve been looking at X10 and
taking baby steps for a year now, afraid to
jump in too far and not be successful
because I was just too little to be taken
seriously. People need to see and try these
capabilities for tghemsweves or they just
wait. A good demo package would help but I
see more wizdom in really giving an
incentive to us who are starting out and
cutting the contractors costs overall.

Your Company wants to enlist contractors to
market and install your product without much
incentive to speak of. I feel that as
Contractors we should receive your items at
10% above your cost, thus allowing profits on
both sides of the fence as well as more FREE
advertising for your company. Myself I
believe in your product, however I simply
cannot justify keeping items in stock.
Henceforth, What would it hurt your company
to supply the contractors with demo systems
that can be set up so the customer will have
the opportunity to see it function in real time?

Well I am very new and very excited to get
started... A Kit would be great for demo..
If a kit could be put together that
includes all of the features in a nutshell
it would be perfect... you got to figure,
when we go to the customers house to
demonstrate the product, we want to show
them everything we can do for them. I have
been in auto security for years and when
the customer is in awe of all the
technology that can be installed they are
easily taken... thats what we need here. A
demo kit that consists of one of each
item... ***read next post***

that way we can go through every feature
and the customer can have a broad idea as
to what "futuristic technology" we can
offer. The kit needs to include all the
basics along with motion lights, software,
cam broadcasting and recording,and
everything... I mean, going to a customer
and saying, "look how this works" is a much
better selling wrench than saying "I dont
have one of these with me to show you BUT
we can do this for you..." not that I would
say that, but its the same principle. My
website isnt finished yet, it will be soon,
but I am finding myself in a bind here... I
am trying to get all the products to put to
gether a kit... then,... when I think I got
a pretty good idea as to what to purchase,
I find other things made by x10 that can
enhance the showcase... ***read next post***

this has been a non stop drama ever sinse I
began this endevor. I now have over $1000
in the demo kit alone and I find out that
the cams I install can be placed on a motor
and controled on a computer on the other
side of the world along with remote through
the cell phone... now I have to invest more
into my demo... whens it going to stop? not
that I want it to stop because I dont, my
point is, if I had a kit or some type of
demo to go by that included everything it
would not be so stressful to the regular
joe trying to start a business installing
x10 products. My website isnt finnished yet
if any of you are checking it out... it
will be this year though. I better stop
before this turns into a book. Oh yea.....
in putting together a kit, I find it
fustrating that I find cheaper prices on
x10 products with large wholesalers than I
can on the x10 site itself. One would think
the price bracket should go like this
(manufacturer/contractor/wholsaler/retailer/
general public)... after all it is the
contractors that go house to house
demonstrating the product... ***read next

oh yea, by the way, before I knew about the
software and the recording capabilities, I
bought a VCR and a VCR commander for my
demo... I was let down when I couldnt find
a x10 vcr to match the system... These
alarms will be installed in $200,000.00
homes at times... everything has got to
match if you want to be totally
professional... anyways, All my installs
will include a seporate system computer to
run the motion cam recorders and broadcast
viewing... x10 should have its own router
for homes with only one computer... it all
needs to look right'n'tight... When I
installed clifford alarm systems in cars
EVERYTHING was clifford! it was good, it
was clean, it was professional. but with
x10 I am finding I have to buy an offbrand
vcr, offbrand router, offbrand pc, and I
also am incorperating custom cameras that
are smaller and can be hidden easier for
nanny viewing. well, I hope I could be of
some help. Have a great day.
