How to Sell Winter Safety

It provides the background on the latest gear from beacons to airbags, how to sell them and, most importantly, how to supply awareness and education that could save a life.

A printed version of this digital flipbook (click left was mailed to more than 1,000 specialty retail shops and it is one in a series of special Retail College How To Sell chapters the SNEWS team produces.
