The goal at Margaret Weis Productions is to drive business and sales to and through brick and mortar locations. Our "Preferred Retailer" program is just one way we hope to get this accomplished. And now we've made it even easier!
You may have already heard about our policy of offering anyone that purchases product from our online store a free (yep, Free!) PDF of their purchase. Please note that's for existing product and also for pre-orders. To inspire people to go through their local game shop, we're going to make it even easier for retailers to offer the very same opportunity to their customers.
We had been sending participating stores a pre-printed card to include with any Margaret Weis Productions sale. The card provided the following instructions:
Thanks for your support of Margaret Weis Productions and your friendly local game store! As a sign of our appreciation, we’d like to send you a free PDF of today’s purchase.
1. Go to www.margaretweis.com
2. Select “Contact Us” from the main menu.
3. Jot us a short note telling us what you purchased and reference the store code found on this card.
That’s it! Your free PDF will land in your inbox within 24 hours of receipt of your email (sometimes even faster)!
Your Games Store Code: _______
Pretty easy for stores and customers! Plus, stores that agree to participate in this program, are added to our Store Locator! Now you don't even need a card or a code! Just let your customers know to Contact Us through our site, tell us what they purchased and from where, and we will send them off the PDF. Less fuss - no muss!
Two: We want to provide retailers with special incentives that will inspire people to buy from their local game store. We welcome your input on what would work best for customers. We're already running launch parties and promotions through many stores found on our Locator.
Are you a retailer that has a great idea for something special to do with MWP? Tell us about it. I think you'll find we're pretty darn responsive. Ready to get started? Just drop Christi at line!
