Guidelines for growers on how to participate in CTFANY’s on-line wholesale promotion
It is our expectation that the wholesale growers who choose to market on this new website will:
- Respond in a timely fashion to any inquiry that they receive and determine as legitimate;
- Praise and encourage all prospects for seeking out and supporting New York State-grown Christmas trees. Salute them as conscientious and quality driven New Yorkers.
Minimum Inquiry Response Requirements
- Acknowledge the receipt of the inquiry within 24 hours.
- Provide overview of your business and products (fine to use standard fact sheet or brochure).
- Provide accurate information on your current availability status.
- Offer to add prospect to your annual price and availability distribution activity.
- Ask permission to call prospect in the future to follow-up on their activity.
- Direct prospect to another grower if you are unable to meet their requirements.
