Find Apparel Sales Reps for Your Clothing Lines

The Apparel Industry

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. Use the form below to create your profile and search our Reps to get started.
