DropShip Dealer / Dealer / Distributor Agreement

2021 Distributor Agreement Package

Welcome to the Modern Spartan Nation family!

“You are now involved with products that will fundamentally change the industry.  Spartan cleaners and lubes maximize the DNA potential of firearms, fishing reels, engines...”

We are thrilled to have you on board with us and are looking forward to growing a prosperous relationship together.  Our goal is to promote our proprietary technologies and become “the dominant world leader” for contaminant removal and friction reduction products for the firearm and other industries.  With your help we are closer to achieving that goal.

We have put together our “Distributor Kits” for you. This includes:

  • Distributor Account Application Agreement
  • MAP Policy Agreement
  • Credit Card Authorization
  • Price Sheets (Distributor, Dealer & Dropship Dealer)
  • Purchase Order Form
Since our technologies are so unique, the Spartan Sales Strategy is based on having a good grasp of each formula and how they work together as a “system”.  At the heart of being successful is firsthand experience.  That old phrase “try it, you’ll like it” could not be more perfect for Spartan products.  We strongly encourage you to read the material in the info emails, on the website, watch the videos, ask us questions, and most importantly, get all your staff using the formulas.  We naturally like to share exciting news with friends.  After your salesmen “feel the Spartan difference” they will have some serious news to share.  The result will generate a genuinely exciting and contagious buzz and do more than any advertising or display to drive sales!

Once you have submitted the completed forms and been approved, you can place your first order with your rep, online or by mail.   Feel free to contact your rep or call us directly if you have questions.

Best Wishes & God Bless

spartan marketing support Strategy

Our combined success will be driven by marketing efforts, education and personal experience.  Sales are driven by “early innovators” using the products themselves and going from a “skeptic” to a “believer”, then talking with their buddies.  We are committed on a number of fronts to support our distributors and dealers to build the brand and encourage that first personal experience.  Below are some of the efforts we are pursuing.

Sales Tools – Firsthand experience is best, but promoting the facts helps to encourage the “tries”.  We are committing plenty of resources to develop testing and demonstration evidence in the form of videos, testimonials and test data.  As results and data come in, we will make them available to you. 

Educational Sales Training - Because our products are so different from the competition, at the start of our relationship we recommend allowing us to set up an educational training session with you, your sales staff or other important people in your organization.  This can be done remotely using teleconferencing or live if possible.  Without giving away proprietary information, we can explain the various technologies, describe the benefits, explain how to maximize the performance of the products, and answer questions.  We are always open to your feedback and ideas!

Digital Marketing – We are constantly working to promote our brand and our Spartan Nation Family with social media marketing, cooperative promotional efforts with partners, affiliate marketing, obtaining media reviews and write-ups from influencers and industry experts, and now with a new website, e-News Letters, and our TV show, Meet Spartan Nation.

Innovative Technical Experts - Our chemists, engineers and small arms experts are some of the top people in their fields.  We are committed to working with them to test and improve existing products and develop new products.  The goal is to carefully expand our product line in a way that improves the shooting experience of our civilian and military clients.

Promotion of American made and a great charity – We are an All- American company.  We use American innovation in our technology and American materials.  We manufacture and package our products in America.  We are also committed to supporting our American soldiers by sponsoring Camp Patriot www.camppatriot.org with both promotional and financial resources, as well as other great organizations.

*  There are also other behind the scenes marketing efforts, including with various tactical communities, in process.  The key is that we are committed to growing and changing the industry.  Please call us with your ideas.

Minimum Advertised Price (“MAP”) Policy

Below is our established a Minimum Adver­tised Price (“MAP”) Policy on all Genuine SPARTAN products. The policy applies to all distributors, Dropship Dealers, and store front Dealers of the products. If you distribute in another country, the MAP is converted at the accepted exchange rate to be the equivalent to US Dollars. SPARTAN actively supports the advertising and promotion of its products with financial and non-financial resources and has and is building a strong reputation and following among consumers. This policy is designed to help maintain that reputation and provide for a fair marketplace in the reselling of SPARTAN products.

The MAP policy shall work under the following guidelines:

1.  The MAP for all Genuine SPARTAN products shall be listed on each SPARTAN Price List provided to all levels of sales. MAP pricing is established by SPARTAN for all Genuine SPARTAN products and may be adjusted by SPARTAN at its sole discretion.

2.  The MAP policy applies to all advertisements of Genuine SPARTAN prod­ucts in any and all media, including, without limitation, flyers, posters, coupons, mailers, inserts, newspa­pers, magazines, catalogs, mail order catalogs, Internet or similar electronic media, television, radio, and public signage. The MAP policy is not applicable to any in-store advertising that is not distributed outside the store location.  

3.  MAP applies only to advertised prices and does not apply to the price at which the products are actually sold or offered for sale to an individual consumer within a Dealer’s retail location or over the telephone. SPARTAN Dropship Dealers, Dealers and distributors remain free to sell these products at any prices they elect.

4.  MAP does not establish maximum advertised prices. All Dealers may offer SPARTAN products at any price over the MAP established for each product.

5.  SPARTAN’s MAP policy does not in any way limit the ability of any reseller to advertise that “they have the lowest prices” or, they “will meet or beat any competitors price,” or phras­es of similar import as long as the price advertised or listed for the products is not less than MAP. Online Auctions and/or eBay’s “Make me an offer” methods of selling are not allowed.

6.  From time to time SPARTAN may discontinue models or engage in promo­tions with respect to certain products. In such events, SPARTAN reserves the right to modify or suspend the MAP with respect to the affected products by 2 of 2 notifying all resellers of such change. SPARTAN further reserves the right to adjust the MAP with respect to all or certain products at its sole discretion upon 7 days advance writ­ten notice to the resellers provided that such changes shall apply equally to all SPARTAN resellers.

7.  Intentional and/or repeated failure to abide by this policy will result in termination of reseller. SPARTAN will provide a 48-hour notice demanding advertised price correction before taking any action under this policy.

a.  Violation warning process—SPARTAN has established a policy with 3 violation warnings before your company’s reselling agreement is terminated. The first 2 violations will be commu­nication via written notice with a request for correction within 48 hours.

b.  A violation of this policy by another distributor or retailer does not authorize your company to violate this policy. Such action will result in a written notification.

The terms of this MAP policy are confidential and should not be disclosed to other parties. This MAP policy has been established by SPARTAN to help ensure the legacy of SPARTAN as a top producer of high performance, high quality weapons and optics lubricants and cleaners to protect the reputation of its name and products. The MAP policy is also designed to ensure resellers have the incentive to invest resources into services for SPARTAN customers.
