Why Wholesale?

At some point, every product business owner will face the dilemma of how to scale.  Whether you’re opening another brick and mortar location, doing extra markets and pop up shops on the weekends or adding yet another 3rd party marketplace to your income stream which you really don't have more time for….the question is the same for everyone:

How to grow your business and increase revenue when you only have so many hours in the day?

One of the simplest ways to scale a successful retail brand is to sell more products!  Of course it is easier said than done and yes if you are serious about selling into retailer – especially retail chains – you really do need to prepare your business and products to be ‘retail ready’ as you will only do have one chance to get it right.

  • Scale without a lot of marketing spend – As a direct to consumer brand, you’ll know that a large portion of your time and money needs to be allocated to marketing efforts. With wholesale you just need a few good quality retailers to grow your sales.
  • Brand Awareness -  by creating strategic wholesale partnerships with established brands within your niche, you can leverage the relationship to get your product into the hands of more customers.
  • Enter new markets with less risk – Expanding your business to a new territory or country comes with a series of associated costs and risks.  Finding another retailer with an existing presence and supply chain in a new market can help reduce the risk of national or international expansion.
  • Economies of scale – As wholesale involves you buying in bulk, direct from manufacturer. You’ll save money and make more money as with more units you can get better cost prices which will also help your retail margins, and the options of flexing your manufacturing becomes broader.
  • Grow your network – There are lots of new ways in which retail buyers of online, independent and large chain retailers are now discovering new products and brands, so this space has become even easier to reach more retailers and grow your business!

Selling wholesale into retailers is 80% strategy, 20% selling. 

Once you’ve nailed the HOW, the DOING is a breeze…
