Find Independent Sporting Goods Sales Reps

The Sporting Goods Industry

If you are a manufacturer or design sporting goods, you want the most people possible using your product and helping you to grow your business. To achieve this goal, find an experienced independent sporting goods sales rep or outside sales reps that can effectively sell and demonstrate your hunting, camping or fishing products. Sales reps function as your ambassadors for your brand in the sporting goods industry markets you want to saturate.

How do you qualify a sporting goods sales rep? Read our tips below to figure out who is the best fit for your outdoors industry products!

Sporting Goods, Hunting Industry or Fishing Equipment Sales Expertise

The major selling point of sports and outdoors equipment is that it can be used, and that in its use, it is better than competing products on the market. To make this point effectively, you want to find an independent sporting goods sales rep comfortable using whatever it is you produce – fishing rods, camping equipment, hunting items, bicycling equipment, and so on. This does not necessarily mean your outside sales rep will have to bike hours every day to show off the effectiveness of your particular bike light, but their authority in the sport and understanding of how to use your product is an important part of the initial sale and the ongoing support they provide to your customers.

Questions to Ask

If you feel comfortable with your potential sporting goods sales rep’s knowledge of your niche, there are some specific additional questions worth asking to see if you will have a long and productive relationship with them. Find out about the volume they moved in the past and average revenue of those products. Ask your potential outside sales representatives about their present lines to avoid competitive overlap. Learn what they think is the right amount of communication with present accounts, and see if that’s in line with what you expect of their performance. Make sure they are effective communicators when it comes to getting new stock in and helping you gauge which products are most popular.

Principal Review

Member #6814 "In the three months that we have been using RepHunter, we have signed up and trained 11 Reps using the service. Six of these were in January. It is still a little early to judge the effectiveness of these Reps, selling our product, but I would have to say that I have been impressed with the quality of most all of the prospects who have contacted us through your service. These results far exceed our expectations and today, I would have to give RepHunter a "perfect 10" on its performance for our business. Thanks for you assistance." - Jim Smathers,

Reps have up to 14 days in which to respond and Rep Credits must be used while your subscription is active. You may need to pay to subscribe for additional months to request and use your Rep Credits. Otherwise, you will be able to use your remaining contact allotment any time in the future after resubscribing to a self-service plan.
