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

    B2B auto sales staff may be selling materials used in cars, containing glass, rubber, steel, aluminum, or plastic. They may also be responsible for selling operational equipment and programs that help auto manufacturers, auto parts salesmen, and auto dealers do their jobs. They may be selling original equipment or aftermarket parts. Regardless of the product in question, in order to expand market reach and acquire loyal customers, one needs a highly skilled sales staff with a deep familiarity with the marketplace. For businesses looking to grow fast, building an independent auto sales rep team with years of experience and pre-existing contacts can be a successful way of meeting business/sales goals.

    As an automotive sales rep, taking on new commission-only lines can help you expand your income and make the most of the valuable industry contacts you have built up over the years. If you’re the kind of person who has loved cars since grade school, automotive sales are a great way for you to engage with your passion and talk shop with people who love the inner workings of cars as much as you do. Express your car know-how and excitement to the manufacturers, distributors, or providers (known here as “Principals”) of auto parts and services, and lucrative should come your way.

    As an automobile industry principal, RepHunter is a great place to find new outside sales reps online who can carry your product proudly through a variety of markets across the United States and even internationally. An independent sales rep can help save you the headache of staffing up in your own office, and offer more mobility and flexibility when it comes to the businesses that you can reach with your products.

    If you are in the auto industry and need to find qualified outside sales reps who can serve you well in B2B settings, you’ve come to the right place in RepHunter. As an auto sales rep looking for new lines, RepHunter is just as equally the right place for you.

    Find Automotive Sales Reps for Aftermarket Products

    As a manufacturer, distributor, or service provider (known here as a “Principal”) in the automotive industry, you know that having a skilled sales staff is important to cracking open new markets and getting your product the exposure and customers it needs. With the automotive market enjoying a resurgence since the end of the recession, now is the time to take advantage of increased demand by hiring an independent auto sales rep.

    How do you determine whether an auto sales rep is a good fit for your product and way of doing business in automotive sales? Check out our tips for finding great outside automotive sales reps below.

    Contacts

    There is a wide variety of automotive parts, services, and tools that are sold B2B in the automotive industry. This makes choosing an independent sales rep even more appealing, as your product line may be a great match for many other product lines being carried by automotive sales reps. With your ideal customer profile in mind, interview your automotive sales rep candidates and see if their existing contacts and product lines match up. Auto outside sales reps and contacts who have battled through the recession and downturn in the automotive industry will have strong relationships and should have years of experience in selling, in good times and bad.

    Auto Trade Show Experience

    No matter what you have to sell, be it a car handle, windshield, type of paint, or accounting software, there are probably several trade shows a year that will provide a great showcase for what you have to offer. This can be a lot for an automotive Principal to keep up with, so send your independent automotive sales rep to the shows instead. In fact, they may be there already to promote additional lines that they carry, which will save you resources in rep transportation and housing.

    Experience & Knowledge

    The best automotive sales reps have years of experience and an educational background in disciplines related to automobiles as well as a passion for what they do. It is hard to instill a desire to learn, and those automotive reps who enjoy keeping up with the auto industry in their spare time can be invaluable assets to a company. If your outside sales rep loves talking shop, chances are they’ll love talking shop for you, too.
