I’m a Melbourne mum of 2 cheeky teenage boys and 2 super-cute puppies. And I know what it means to juggle motherhood and this crazy thing called life with running a profitable business you love.
I’ve struggled with it at times. But I’ve also succeeded. In a BIG way.
Ok, it’s easy for me to say “simply talk to your wholesale customers directly” but I know there is a lot more to it than that!
There are so many ways to reach your potential retailers.
Simply put you might reach out via email to advertise your products. Done properly this approach can be great, I will give you some tips in the coming weeks. BUT you do risk your messages getting lost in crowded inboxes or not reaching the right person to begin with.
Obviously, this approach refers to phoning new customers as the first point of contact. This method can be intimidating and often has a bad reputation. However, you can use some tips to refine your approach.
Learning how to approach retail stores to sell your product is a great skill for wholesale distributors to have in their toolbelt. In 2021-2022, it’s even more important to know the right strategies for doing this.
Getting your products into the retail sector via traditional retailers can be a fantastic growth strategy.
It can also do wonders for your product, your business processes, and also for the health of your business as a whole.
There are a few things to consider as you navigate moving your products into retail stores;
- You have to get more serious about your packaging!
- You must have your wholesale pricing sorted out!
- Your shipping and logistics processes need to be rock solid
- GET READY – you need to have a plan to handle extremely large volumes!
