Independent Reps in The Sportswear Industry
The sportswear industry functions very similarly to the apparel industry, and with the economy bouncing back, both look to grow. Sportswear is a great niche in the apparel industry, as culturally we continue to embrace sportswear and sportswear styled looks. Sneakers, yoga pants, and sweat shirts are ubiquitous in our culture, and selling new takes on these pieces can be a great business.
To take advantage of the growth opportunities in the sportswear industry, sportswear companies often aggressively hire independent sportswear sales reps. Hiring an outside sales representative who is experienced in selling apparel, and specifically sportswear, can help you kickstart your sales. These outside sales reps can lean upon contacts they’ve already made in the sportswear industry to help get your product into more stores and in front of more customers. Sales reps can take your product to tradeshows, help you get feedback on what designs are working, and what new opportunities exist in the market for new lines.
For an outside sales rep, working in the sportswear industry can be exciting. There can be many opportunities to travel, and sometimes opportunities to meet with coaches and athletic directors, and even to watch teams. Many of the synthetic materials that make up athletic clothing are cheap, so the margins on such products are high.
If you run a sportswear company and want to expand your sales and reach new audiences, sign up for RepHunter and find new outside sales reps to represent your lines. As a rep, you can find new lines on RepHunter. Start today by clicking on one of our buttons to the right.
Find Independent Sportswear Sales Rep Jobs

How do you find opportunities in selling sportswear? Read our tips below for advice on obtaining commission only sportswear sales rep opportunities.
Immerse Yourself in Your Niche
The sportswear industry includes a huge variety of audiences, everyone from a yoga teacher to a mountain climber to a football player. Each of these groups has their own culture. Immerse yourself in the culture of your sport. Knowing the references, the history of the sport, and the rules will help you get ahead and build relationships faster. If you enjoy participating in the sport, that’s even better!
Be Willing to Put in the Hours
Especially when work is commission only, putting in the hours is huge. You can make the six figure salary you want as an outside sales representative, but you will have to build and actively nurture relationships, have a better knowledge of the industry than competitors, and attend the tradeshows that are most relevant to your audience.
Master the Interview
Social skills and the ability to make a good impression are hugely important in sales, and sportswear sales are no exception. In the interview, you need to show not just your expertise, but your ability to connect with strangers. Your listening abilities as an outside sales rep will also be noted, as part of your position may be to gather feedback on sportswear sales so that the company can modify its products according to market needs.
If you like sports, have an outgoing personality, and a willingness to work hard, sportswear sales are probably right for you. Click on the button below to create your profile, search the lines we have in our RepHunter database and find the best sportswear sales rep job opportunities for you.
