The door to door sales will be phased out because our team believes this strategy to be old fashioned and could portray a negative outlook on Eco Water as a company. The markets we would like to tap into are more rural territories. These types of markets show more cases of rust, impurities, and contamination in the water. Consumers will also enjoy better-tasting water, coffee, soups, mixed drinks, juices, and beverages.

Destin Brass Products is a manufacturing company specialized in brass products started in Destin, Florida, 1984, running by Roland Guidry (president), Peggy Alford (controller), John Scott, (manufacturing manager) and Steve Abbott (sales and marketing manager). There are three major product lines: valves (24% of company revenue), pumps (55% of revenue) and flow controllers (21 of revenue).

A pull strategy would involve adjusting communications to speak more directly to the very different concerns that pool owners and service
