Our Promise To You
- We are committed to providing professional, and knowledgable Demonstrators every time!
- Our Ambassadors will promote the product, price, placement, and promotional aspects of the product with the goal of influencing the consumer to purchase the product.
- We will only schedule our representatives based on the requests of both the Vendor as well as the Retailer. Feedback from the Retailer is used to schedule promotions during peak traffic periods in coordination with Vendor requirements.
- To accomplish this, we ask for as much advance notice as possible in booking our events. We want our clients to get the best reps each and every time so when possible we request a minimum 2 week notice
- Along with our invoicing, the client will get copies of the Store Reports and any expense receipts for needed supplies. This will include information on beginning and ending inventory levels, units sampled, units sold, number of consumer engagements, comments on the success of the event and overall customer feedback.
- We promise to inform our vendors whenever areas of potential improvement are identified.
Events 4 a Cause wants to make a difference through the work we do.
Whenever possible, a percentage of profits from our Demos, Tastings, and Special Events will be donated to a variety of predesignated charities.
As Special Events and Demos are completed, our donations will be updated here.
“The best opportunity for our uplifting is the opportunity to give.”
