Steve May
Chief Operating Officer,
Wisdom Herbs

“Avatar Sales and Marketing did an outstanding job of taking a small company with a limited product line, dated packaging and limited distribution and making us a much larger, more successful and professional operation…Our sales increased more than 400%.”

Daniel Sanders
President, Lamas Beauty International

“During the past three years, the team at Avatar has systematically built our natural retail busi-ness. Three years into our relationship, we achieved some major milestones that we’re very proud of. Our company is growing, and with Avatar’s help, is steadily building a nationally recognized brand.”

O. Robin Sweet
The Well Fed Baby, Inc

“Ms. Driggs and Avatar Sales and Marketing have done an admirable job in managing all aspects of our sales and marketing overseeing the brokers, distributors, and implementing new programs to enhance our market share… Any business which has her involved in their sales and marketing is indeed fortunate.”

Karine Etieve
Owner, Eden Naturals – A Woman Owned Business

“I would recommend Avatar Sales and Marketing as a consultant to any manufacturer who either is interested in entering the Natural Products Industry in North America or who has already entered the industry but has not had success at establishing market share.

Avatar provided an excellent and thorough consulting project for us to teach us the “ins and outs” and cost analyses from the sales and marketing end of the natural products industry. We found Avatar to be the piece that was missing in our ability to analyze our company and our products worthiness in the industry and whether or not we were ready to grow and invest more revenues in this channel. I would say that Avatar saved us a great deal of time, money and energy that otherwise would have been spent to no avail.”

Alan C. Levitan
International Foods Marketing Corp

“I highly recommend Avatar and Kim Driggs if you wish to increase your sales and need a proven team leader and sales builder.

I worked with Kim for three years when she was the National Sales Manager for Crispy Green, a freeze fried fruit manufacturer and sales and marketing company, and I was a consultant there.

Kim is always upbeat, energetic, positive thinking and relentless in pursuing new business and retaining existing customers. She set up a broker network and managed it, using a variety of communications techniques, including face to face meetings. She also managed several accounts herself which resulted in additional sales without broker commission expense.

Kim has been doing this work for many years and has a wealth of experience she can share with a new company management team or “talk the talk” in a larger, more established company.”

Cathy

“Thank you for giving us 210%! It is good for Buzz and I to have this information to be able to make sound decisions concerning the future of RAW.”

Clyde St Clair
Co-CEO, Ridgecrest Herbals

“Avatar is well structured and highly effective in distributor and broker relationships. We recommend Avatar Sales and Marketing without reservation to any manufacturer for national sales and marketing management.”

Jim Ford
Kellogg Co.

“Kim, not sure if it is clear, but I would not hesitate to come to you again in the future should I have an opportunity. You were critical to our success at an important time.”

W. Paul Warnock
Co-CEO, Ridgecrest Herbals

“RidgeCrest Herbals has had a business relationship with Avatar Sales and Marketing for in excess of three years. We found them to have integrity and to be dedicated, enthusiastic and energetic in selling our products. They are good business and sales people and capable marketers, especially in building and maintenance of a broker/distributor network. They are well connected in the natural products industry. We recommend Avatar Sales and Marketing to anyone for whom an outsourced sales and marketing organization would fill a need, as it did for us for a considerable period of time.”

Sarah Porter
Founder, Outer Body Experience

“In launching our business whatever fears, hesitations and concerns we had were made much easier through the initial consulting process with Avatar. They helped us outline what it would take to launch our product whether it was half-nation, full-nation, direct VS distribution. When working with Avatar you get a full time National Sales & Marketing Manager and two administrative assistants to handle all the daily duties. Avatar knows how to get you where you want to go.”

Angela Liu
CEO l Founder of Chrispy Green

“Crispy Green retained Avatar Marketing in March of 2010, to support our sales effort. Kim Driggs, the President of Avatar Marketing, acted as our National Sales Manager since then until our agreement ended on April 30, 2013.

During this time, Avatar provided the sales management functions for Crispy Green which included implementing Crispy Green’s sales strategies, developing and managing the broker network across the US and Canada, as well as expanding Crispy Green’s distribution channels. Kim and the Avatar team engaged in our business actively and were willing to do everything and anything necessary to drive our sales forward. Her knowledge of the business bolstered by a strong commitment, tenacity and professionalism was a valuable asset for Crispy Green. Kim is an effective communicator and a good organizer. She also supported by a team of dedicated and competent staff.

Avatar Marketing would be an asset for any start up or existing small manufacturer trying to establish or increase its market share in the food and the natural products industry.

Their information provided us with a thorough, well organized presentation of the details of the distribution and cost analysis of the marketing and sales representation within the natural products industry. The detailed financial breakdown of all costs provided us with a budget that we could not have gotten as a newcomer to the industry. Kim is a joy to work with and has all the experience, patience and knowledge from many years in the natural products industry as a consultant and national sales manager.”

Dave Boyd
Director, Global Operations, Pure Fruit Technologies, LLC

“Avatar Sales and Marketing has proven to be indispensable in our company’s efforts to penetrate the natural products retail channel with our nutritional supplement products. The breadth and depth of their knowledge of the industry, their best-of-the-best broker partners throughout the US, and their relationships with key distributor partners sets Avatar apart as the premier sales organization of its kind.

Acting as National Sales Directors for Pure Fruit Technologies, Avatar Sales and Marketing has helped us avoid the common mistakes new product manufacturers typically make when entering the natural channel and have led us to opportunities to which we would not have otherwise enjoyed access.

Avatar’s professionalism and creativity can take great ideas and products to the next levels of success.”
