Barnes & Noble and all off our other major retail chains such as Hastings, Go the Game Store and Spencer Gifts have been a mixture of hard work, timing, the right contacts and the right market conditions. Two things have been very helpful for us. Trade shows and sales representation. We announced Sexy Slang and Naughty Charades at two of the most appropriate trade shows which help us gain exposure for our brand and helped us develop the connections we needed with the buyers and sales reps. Trade shows can be expensive for an entrepreneur who is just starting out. I recommend attending some shows beforehand to understand how a successful show is run. Perhaps even volunteer to help another exhibitor work their booth.
