• The program consists of four telephone seminars. • Each seminar lasts approximately 90 minutes to two hours. • Each seminar will cover a different topic. • After each seminar, you will be emailed information relevant to that particular topic to get you started. (For example, after the Awards seminar you will receive a list of awards with contact information.) • Each call will be limited to 5 participants on a first come, first served basis. • The day before each seminar, you will be emailed a phone number and a conference code. Call that number at the appointed time and we will get started. • At the end of each seminar, questions will be taken. • In addition to the seminar calls, each client will receive one hour of individual consulting time to be scheduled separately. This can be in the form of emails or phone calls and the hour does not need to be taken all at once. • Some seminar participants may be eligible for the To Market Kids distribution program with NewSound Kids. Contact us for details. • Once a year there is a Telephone Seminar Program plus Distribution plus Representation at Toy Fair. Sign up for the mailing list to be notified of the next program (price is slightly higher than regular telephone seminar program.) The topics for the seminar are divided into four areas:
