what's right covers a lot of ground. It's an
ethical issue. It's establishing loyalty and maintaining
trust. It's a performance standard. And it's having
the ability to see what's ahead and changing to meet
it head on.
We pride ourselves on a track record filled with "right"
turns. We've done what's right for our principals, customers
and distributors - and have seen everyone win. While
the details and decisions vary considerably, there are
basic rules of "doing it right" at Spectrum…
Ethical considerations predominate in all business
relationships. Principle and pragmatism must work hand
in hand. Maintaining confidentiality and adhering to
our trade association's code of ethics are our prime
2. Offer loyalty and trust-worthiness,
and it will return to you. Proof is in the quality and
longevity of our principals, customers and distributors.
3. Performance is about results, not
rhetoric. Failure is not an option. By working through
problems, instead of trying to avoid them, we all become
stronger and more successful.
4. Forecasting the future accurately
is far more important than adding up the past. While
past achievements establish a foundation to build on,
the building process itself must continually grow upward
and outward. Wherever possible, it must grow ahead of

versus direct, what's the real difference?
your advocates, we will:
Manufacturers' representatives only earn when they sell,
so they are more motivated to promote your product than
salespeople who work directly for you.
What's more, using a rep instead of managing your own
direct sales organization gives you a cost effective
means of outsourcing your sales function with no fixed
cost. Pick the right rep firm and you immediately have
access to major accounts, the synergy of a multiple-line
selling strategy - and a team of experienced salespeople
and managers who already know the market. But which
is the right rep firm?
Not all reps are motivated like Spectrum. Spectrum Marketing
Associates is never satisfied with the status quo. As
a result, the manufacturers we represent don't have
to ask: "What has my rep firm done for me lately?"
With us, you'll partner with talented marketers who
know the territory, and have proven themselves selling
and designing leading edge electronic products. We are
a stable, well-managed company that motivates our employees
to succeed and plans for business continuity.

professionalism and complete confidentiality.
