The Window Covering Manufacturers Association (WCMA) announced today the approval of a new window covering safety standard by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) that will require a vast majority of window covering products sold in the United States and Canada to be cordless or have inaccessible or short cords. The new safety standard, ANSI/WCMA A100.1-2018, strengthens window-covering safety by requiring that all stock products sold in stores and online—which account for more than 80 percent of all window covering products sold in the U.S. and Canada—to be cordless or have inaccessible cords.
NOTHING is worse than spending hours of time meeting, emailing, and following up with prospects who are unqualified and never close the sale. Join us for our first webinar of the year, “Pre-Qualifying Your Prospects” with Laura Hawley, owner of Ambiance Design, a Hunter Douglas window treatment gallery. She will be sharing her years of sales experience and Sandler Sales Training in how to properly prequalify prospects, saving you lots of time to focus on the prospects who are both willing and able to do business with you!
