“I’m excited to work with Clay.” says Peter Pawlus Principal at REPatron. "Clay knows several reps who have been using the REPatron service so it is always great to get referral business. Clay has a strong service focused agency and has built up solid sales history with his brands. He’s worked with Rocky Mountain Sunscreen for 15 years which is a great product. He also recently added the 180s line to his agency..so it is great to work with an agency that has momentum. An avid outdoorsman, clay also has some original photography we are incorporating into his site which is really cool. As REPatron is built using the latest Google technology, it is easy to work with and is quickly searchable with search engines like Google. Zim Outdoor’s site has a slideshow of current and new products as well as a Custom YouTube channel to feature their brands. www.zimoutdoors.com is a site where we were able to incorporate several web apps and the latest learnings we have from a technology and an outdoor sales agency perspective. The ability to learn and then rapidly incorporate improvements into the REPatron sites gives us an advantage over the older build it and watch it rot websites.”
“At this point, every rep/sales agency should have a website. That is the new minimum in the industry. You then step above your peers when you add dealer support functionality to an already professional branding website. If done properly with a service like REPatron, it adds a new level of professionalism to reps and sales agencies and provides a higher level of value-add for their retailer customers. We also recently added a Facebook App that ties to your REPatron service. Real Rep needed functionality in Facebook.”
