With over 3½ million retail establishments in the United States combining to make an annual GDP of $2.5 trillion, it's easy to understand why any manufacturer would want a slice of that pie. At the same time, it's just as important to nourish our relationships with retailers to find the right products to stock their shelves.
Finding success by placing and selling products in national chains is something we are uniquely qualified to accomplish because it requires so many different angles and characteristics within a representative firm:
- You have to know the Gatekeepers and Buyers. We do.
- You have to understand their business as well as the client's. We do.
- You have to supply an easy sell-through option via fulfillment distributors. We do.
- You have to speak their language. Si, habla Sales.
Retails and manufactures select Oliver Marketing as a qualified choice, not simply by default.
