Morning Bird basically offers two different business opportunities: Wholesale and distributor level representatives. Information regarding both is offered below.

All information obtained by Morning Bird about an individual or company is kept strictly confidential and is not released to any other entity without the original sender's permission, or as directed by law.
Morning Bird has no "exclusive rights' agreement with any other individual or company. Exclusivity does not fall within the scope of Morning Bird's marketing strategy.

It is this empowerment that facilitates the growth of your business as well as ours.
Sales And Information Manual
Each wholesale and distributor representative is provided with a sales and information manual. There is no cost to receive this manual. The manual is periodically updated with revisions and/or new material. The manual is an extensive document that provides all relevant information needed to effectively advertise, market, and sell the entire line of Morning Bird products. Included in the manual are two CD's providing the user with product information narratives, product photographs, and the Morning Bird logo. Morning Bird gives permission for the wholesale or distributor representative to utilize any or all of this information in the their efforts to market, merchandise, advertise, promote or sell Morning Bird products.
By utilizing these CD's, the wholesale or distributor representative agrees to accurately and legally portray Morning Bird products and not to materially change Morning Bird's representations as to the formulation, use, or utility of it's products.
