You appear to be looking for products/services to represent, not Independent Sales Reps.

If you are looking for commission-only lines, please click here to go to the correct page and fill out the form.

Otherwise, click the "X" in the upper right of this box to continue.

Enter keywords to search for reps in our database. The search looks at the portion of the rep's profile where they describe their customer base.
IMPORTANT SEARCH TIPS
  • Describe your customers. Examples: retail, apparel, gift shop, medical, OEM, industrial, machine, component, auto, department store, distributor, wholesale, etc.
  • Note: do not include cities or states with your keywords. Territories are not part of the keyword field and will dramatically reduce your results.
  • Once you are registered with RepHunter, you can do an Advanced Search, which allows searching by Territories and more.
TO FIND RESULTS WITH ...
All Of The Words
Enter one or more words. All must be present to be included in the result. For example, the search home office will find entries with both home AND office but not necessarily as adjacent words.
The Exact Phrase
Enter quotes as part of the search. For example, "home office" (with the quotes entered) will find only entries having the exact phrase home office.
At Least One Of The Words
Put a comma or "OR" between the words. Either word must be present to be included in the result. For example home, office will find entries with either home OR office. Another more complex example: home office, copier will find entries with home AND office OR copier. Likewise for copier, home office.
Word Boundaries
The search function has been enhanced so the word boundary symbols [ and ] are no longer necessary.
Negative Keywords
To search for results that do NOT include a keyword (example: home office but not copier), use a minus sign immediately before the keyword you wish to omit.
Example: home office -copier

    Outside Sales Reps in the clothing industry can serve different functions. At the wholesale level, a company may be interested in finding an apparel sales rep with experiencing in placing clothing lines in stores. This type of rep specializes in trade show and showroom work to obtain apparel distribution in retail stores. This position often requires travel from market to market, trade show to trade show. Commission and networking are especially prized here. Specific educational programs are available to help a sales rep break into this work, and these accreditations, in addition to experience, may be valued by clothing sales Principals.

    B2B direct sales are another common need in the apparel industry. Here Principals need reps for selling clothes to organizations in need of custom apparel to bear their brand. Organizations may also be in need of work uniforms, or team apparel. As with the wholesale level, networking abilities and previous contacts, in addition to education, are coveted skills.

    Retail sales reps are also important in the clothing industry. The educational level and experience level required here is somewhat lower, but an outgoing personality and networking skills are just as essential.

For businesses, we help find sales reps that are supremely qualified to sell their product and get it in front of the desired customer base. For sales reps, we help find businesses that offer the best match for their skills and the greatest opportunity to succeed professionally.

    Find Apparel Sales Reps for Your Clothing Lines

    Independent apparel sales reps are a great fit for a manufacturer, supplier, or service provider (or as referred to here, a "Principal") looking to get their clothing line off the ground as quickly as possible, without building an in-house sales staff. Getting your fashion and apparel lines in the hands of an experienced fashion sales rep allows you to cut costs and reach new markets fast.

    The key to success here is having highly qualified and reliable independent sales reps. How do you find the best apparel sales rep for your fashion or clothing lines? And how do you attract the most qualified possible outside fashion sales reps that will not only make sales, but find new apparel sales reps for you?

    How to Attract the Best Apparel Sales Reps

    Commission only sales reps will be looking to maximize their fashion sales opportunities. So, independent reps look for apparel lines with a great hook, established reputation, or existing clientele. To attract the best reps, make sure your product is developed, doesn’t need any early stage market research, and can retail.

    You’ll also want your commission percentages and rep territory thought out when you go looking for apparel sales reps. These two things are very important to reps and give them incentive to maximize their income. Other incentives, like bonuses and trips, can be important to keep your independent reps motivated. Treat your fashion sales reps well, and they should treat you well, too.

    How To Select The Best Fashion Sales Rep

    So you’ve set up your apparel sales rep policy to attract the best possible talent. How do you know when you’ve got the best fashion sales representative on your hands?

    An established portfolio of contacts in the apparel industry is one important thing to look for in a sales rep. Years of experience are important too – many companies look for at least 5 years. General knowledge about selling clothes or other products is important to look for, as are sales certifications. A rep should be able to market your clothing lines effectively, show enthusiasm, and be able to pick up the phone to talk to distributors and press outlets alike.

    If you are a Principal looking for apparel sales reps to carry your fashion or apparel line, RepHunter is the best place to locate interested outside sales reps and build an effective and successful sales force. RepHunter has a long history of connecting apparel manufacturers with the best sales reps lookng for new clothing lines.
