Did you know?
Independent Reps in the Retail Industry
Whether the product you want to bring to market is a clothing line, a road bike, an ice cream, or a children’s toy, you’ll need to navigate the retail industry and take your product from the manufacturer to retail stores, be they independent, online, or major retailers like Wal-Mart. It takes planning and effort to help products reach storefronts, and a commission-only independent retail sales rep can help with this task.
As the producer of a retail item, obtaining distribution alone can be a challenge. Promoting your product successfully in the retail industry requires attending trade shows, giving presentations, creating brochures, and maintaining an online presence. This is addition to creating relationships with resellers, guaranteeing your own supply chain is functioning smoothly, and looking for opportunities to expand your line. It is a lot of responsibility for one person and even an in-house staff. A commission-only retail sales rep can attend trade shows on your behalf, leverage their own contacts to create contracts for you, and provide you with experience and expertise in your niche. To get your product off the ground, a commission-only outside sales rep can be vital.
As a commission-only retail sales rep, you know that carrying exciting retail product lines is important to making your job fulfilling and profitable. The experience retail sales reps have in working with large and small retailers, and navigating the retail trade show world, can provide great benefits to a number of businesses. It’s easy to add great retail sales lines with RepHunter’s searchable database of manufacturers and distributors of products (in our terminology, "Principals").
If you are either looking for great retail reps or are a retail rep looking for new lines, sign up with RepHunter today to meet your professional and business goals in retail sales. RepHunter is the #1 place online for manufacturers and outside sales reps alike. Whether you are an outside sales representative or a Principal, get started today by clicking on one of our buttons to the right.
Find Retail Sales Representatives
When you have a new product you are trying to get into retail stores, you will have to push and promote the product on several fronts. From old fashioned cold-calling, to professional networking, to trade shows, videos, and online marketing, cracking the retail industry is more than a full-time job.
To concentrate on the quality of your product and get the most possible contacts and distribution, find a commission-only retail sales rep on RepHunter! Our tips below will help you find the best outside sales rep for your retail product.
Sell to Big Box Stores
Not every product belongs in a big box store. Think about the end customer you are targeting with your product, and where they’ll be shopping. A hardcore cyclist might not be visiting a big box sporting good to get their new biking pedals, so pursuing those types of stores might be a waste of your retail sales rep’s energy. On the other hand, getting into big box stores if your product fits – a fun new toy for infants, for example – may not be as hard as you think. Determine which stores you’d like to reach with your goods, and find a retail sales rep with experience in presenting products to those stores. If the retail sales rep you are talking to is good enough, they’ll turn you down if the sales strategy is wrong – or give you advice on how to make your product the perfect line for them.
Explore Trade Shows & Presentations
Trade shows are a big deal in the retail industry, for Principals and outside sales reps alike. Consumer products are meant to be used, and demonstrating them to potential resellers is a very effective way to show how great they are. Connecting with resellers and allowing them to experience your product will leave them a strong memory of what you’re selling when they change up their inventory. Hire a great retail sales rep with trade show experience and an enthusiastic presentation style to maximize your trade show impact.
To stand out from the crowd in the retail industry, creative sales and marketing tactics help tremendously. Search for a retail sales rep that can help you put together a brochure, website, or social presence that will resonate with the type of reseller they know you are trying to target.
