Aliester’s razor-sharp focus on sales process is a major part of our business success. Before, we were struggling to get the attention of buyers. Now we have a process that consistently delivers us more than enough meetings we need to grow our business.

Our Process

The toy industry is about more than sales – it’s about sparking joy. We get that. While tactics change, our core mission stays true: connecting families with perfect playtime matches.

Here’s how we do it differently

Deep Dives: We research target retailers, competitors, and trends to craft a message that resonates.

Storytelling Power: We move beyond features. We craft a narrative that captures the emotional connection your toys create.

The Right Fit: We build buyer profiles to target ideal retail partners and decision-makers.

Brand Champions: We commit ourselves to creating a way for the right buyers to recognize your value.

We don’t ‘spray and pray. We build targeted campaigns that create relationships for long-term success.

Each campaign gives you:

A number of meetings with qualified, interested contacts

A list of warm leads that should receive additional contacts

Battle-tested and revised scripts and sales assets

Insight into what your clients are responding to (and not)

Cold outreach isn’t about the technical conversation. It is about giving them an introduction that lets them see your credibility, and creates enough curiosity so that the person says, “I should probably talk to these guys.” 

Let's grow your toy business

Hey There. I'm Aliester. People call me the “Puzzle Cowboy”

Here’s the simple reason why:

I worked with so many people in the toy business, that I just became known as the Puzzle Cowboy. Also, partly the boots 🙂

But it wasn’t always like this…..

It all started when I joined a tiny unknown puzzle company in Montreal.

It wasn’t an overnight success. In fact we had only six titles, and less customers than that. But I saw an opportunity.

I built $2 million in direct annual revenue, and sales processes that brought the brand to the top of the puzzle category.

And today I am proud to help other Family Owned Toy Businesses get the meetings they need to make their business a success.

10 Things That Are Not As Good As Hiring TOY MEETINGS To Fill Your Sales Pipeline

#1 Paid Ads

Good for Building a Cold List, Bad for Direct Sales

Clicks don’t equal conversations – retail buyers rarely buy based on ‘perceived popularity.

#2 The Rolodex Salesperson

Limited Network, Limited Growth

They’ll tap out their existing contacts quickly and lack the skills to generate new, sustainable leads.

#3: The Commission-Only Outside Salesperson

Short-Term Results, Long-Term Reputation Damage

They’ll aggressively blast through leads, potentially harming your brand while seeking quick wins.

#4. The Sales Freelancer

Inconsistent Quality, Lack of Support Systems

Results vary wildly, and without a proven process, it’s a gamble with a high risk of failure.

#5. Your Family Friend

Being Talkative Doesn’t Mean They Have Sales Skills

This leads to frustration and wasted time for everyone involved.

#6. The Digital Marketing Agency

Content Warms Leads, But Humans Close Deals

Nurturing is important, but it takes personalized outreach to convert interest into appointments.

#7. The In-House Salesperson

Closer, Not a Prospector

They excel at closing warm leads but flounder with cold outreach, and their time is too valuable to waste.

#8. The DIY Business Owner As Salesperon

Time-Consuming, Frustrating, and Rarely Effective

You are passionate, and an expert in your field. But not in marketing or lead generation. Without support, your outreach can feel like a full-time career on its own.

#9. Attending More Trade Shows and Networking Events

High Cost, Low Predictability, Same Old Thing

These can be valuable for brand exposure but are unreliable for consistent, fresh lead generation.

#10. Expanding the Internal Sales Team

Expensive and Time-Consuming

Recruiting, training, and managing new hires is a major investment, with no guarantees of increased lead generation.

The road to success starts with getting one thing right at a time.

We give Toy Companies a systematic approach for lead generation that builds personal connections with buyers at scale.
