Selling to Wal-Mart and Target

Many inventors and new product entrepreneurs want to sell to Target or Wal-Mart. And some do. You won’t have any easy time making the sale, and there are plenty of obstacles, but the fact is that both Wal-Mart and Target are open to new vendors, both have an open submission policy and you might be able to succeed if you set up a plan to that will show the retailers that your product will sell. Wal-Mart goes a little bit further than Target in being accessible to new retailers by having a local buying program where inventors can actually have their product test market in their local store, and if it succeeds it just might be picked up across the country. The road to both Wal-Mart and Target success is to build up some market momentum to show the product will sell, and then simply work through the retailers’ submission process until you can get in front of a buyer.

Many of you are probably skeptical about your prospects about getting your product into Wal-Mart or Target. So I’m going to start with a couple of success stories.

Success Stories

Kim Babjack launched her business at QVC, selling her first 2,000 Zip-A-Ruffles, which is a ruffled bed skirt that zips on and off the bed pad for easy cleaning. The Zip-A-Ruffles ran successfully on QVC for several years and created a history for Babjack when she came up with a new product idea in 2005, the Animalid a toilet-lid cover with 3-D animal graphics designed to help toddlers feel more comfortable during the potty-training process.

Babjack was sure her product would sell at Wal-Mart and she approach her local Wal-Mart Store Manager to carry the Animalid. After working for a year to get an appointment, Babjack made her presentation, the store manager loved it and after only a small mountain of paperwork and approval of the district manager Babjack’s product was on the shelf. Animalids had a name upgrade to Animal Lidz, and never dominated the market but it still had its spot on the Wal-Mart and a chance for permanent glory.

The husband and wife combination Vanessa Troyer and Chris Farentinos came up with a simple idea, a lockable mailbox. The mailman could put the mail in, but you could only get the mail out with a key. Their two products’, the Oasis and the Oasis Jr., sales have Troyer and Farentinos’ company Architectural Mailboxes off and running in the marketplace and right into Target’s catalog and website. To date they have sold more than 150,000 of their locked letter drops, which retail for $97 to $258.

Troyer and Farentinos developed their credentials by selling successfully through Amazon. Through a persistent effort she located the home address of Jeff Bezos, president of Amazon and sent him a presentation on how much money Amazon was losing because their packages were lost. The day after the presentation arrived Amazon called and today they carry over 50 of Architectural Mailboxes products. The Oasis locking mailbox is not just sold by Target, it is also sold by Home Depot, Costco and Lowes.

The Submission Process

Both Wal-Mart and Target have a submission process before you have a chance to meet a buyer. Your chances of meeting a buyer will increase as you have success in the market.

Wal-Mart

National Program

1. Go to the Wal-Mart’s web page and find the supplier section.

2. On the left side of the page and for Product Submission. There will be a link at the site for Wal-Mart’s online submission package.

3. You are allowed to upload only 512 KB of data. So you might need to cut down your brochure image quality to keep under that limit.

4. The online submission form doesn’t ask for your sales success but if you keep your brochure down in size you can include a jpeg of a page with your current sales success.

5. Once you do this you need to wait for the buyer to contact you to request a sample or hopefully an appointment.

You can only be so active in the National Program, and you can’t really control how the buyers will respond, so it can be discouraging as you don’t have control of the situation. Fortunately Wal-Mart also has the local buying program option that offers you an opportunity for a one-on-one meeting.

Local Buying Program

If you want to sell your product only in a limited market, Wal-Mart requires you to use their local buying program, where you need to convince one Wal-Mart manager to like your product, then you need to complete a local supplier questionnaire and have the District Manager approve the questionnaire. You can do this even if you hope to eventually sell to all Wal-Marts, but you just need to start with the local store manager.

Sounds easy enough. The problem is getting that appointment with the store manager. This is where you need to supply lots of success information about your product, state exactly in the store where your product should go, and explain how your product has outsold the other products that Wal-Mart has on the shelf at other locations. The store manager is busy, and won’t see you until you can be convincing that your product will sell. You need to expect to try to make an appointment for at least 90 days and you need to keep furnishing information to get the store manager interested. You also might want to try and get in to see several store managers. The store manager’s point of view is going to be that only one out of 100 products will be worth seeing. Your job will be to provide short bursts of information that will show your product is the right one.

Some steps you can take to help the manager see your product is right:

1. Have sales success, preferably in bigger stores. Be sure to show pictures of your product on the shelves of those stores.

2. Attend trade shows, show your booth display.

3. Obtain testimonials from satisfied users.

4. Show PR you have generated in industry or consumer magazines.

5. Create effective packaging.

6. Be prepared to show that you can deliver large quantities, either with a D&B report, or with a detailed explanation of how you can fund deliveries.

Target

Target wants new vendors to call their Sourcing Information Center at 612-696-7500. When you call they will direct people who want to sell a product to Target to send an email to target.globalplanning@target.com. You will only get a response if the Target people like your product. So you need to be sure that you include all the information you can about your product, your sales success and also your ability to fund production. The email itself should show a picture of the product, in its package if you can. You only have a brief opportunity to make your point so you have to be direct. You can send in your item multiple times, but space the submittals at least six weeks apart.

I recommend you have in the email itself, not as an attachment,

1. Start with the category, for instance: New Electronic Product.

2. Mention one or two items currently carried by Target that your product should be next to. For example: place next to digital cameras and camcorders.

3. State where it has been sold. Just on one line, list only the biggest retailers, catalogs or Home Shopping Network.

4. List the suggested retail price.

5. Your contact information.

6. A picture of the product in its package. Don’t make the picture too big, 2 x 2.5 inches is fine. They can enlarge the picture if needed.

Also include as attachments as many items as you can from the list above on how to convince the store manager that he or she should meet with you.

Other Options

While Wal-mart and Target both have a process that anyone can use to present their product, that doesn’t mean that you will have an easy time getting an appointment with a buyer where you can pitch your product. You might be shut out and never get the chance to make your convincing case. If that should happen, you still have two other options to explore: selling through distributors who might sell to the big retailers, or having a company that already sells to Wal-mart or Target market your product for you. Always first try to sell your product yourself, often Target or Wal-Mart prefer to buy from the manufacture first, and if you sell through other companies you will make far less money than if you sell directly. But if you can’t get in the door at first you may need to take another approach.

Distributors

There are many ways to find distributors that would handle your product. Industry Trade Magazines often have an annual directory where they would list distributors. Larger libraries will have Gale’s Source of Magazines and Broadcast Media which lists almost all trade magazines, or you can try an internet search. Trade Associations will also have a directory of distributors. Gale’s Encyclopedia of Associations at larger libraries can also help you, as can an internet search.

You can also check search the internet for directory listings for distributors, for instance:

-Top Ten Wholesale

-Wholesale Directory

-Wholesale Distributors Directory

-Wholesale Central

Contact the distributor and get the name of the person in charge of what products they carry. Then send that person the same package you sent to Target and Wal-mart about your product. Even if the distributor doesn’t sell to Target or Wal-mart they might still be willing to carry your product and sell it to other customers. Expect the distributor to mark your price up from 20 to 33%, so you suggested retail price will also need to go up. Retailers will mark a product up from 50 to 100%. Once you know what mark-ups are standard in your industry you can determine what your suggested retail price is.

Other Manufactures or Marketers

Your other choice is to go into the store and find products in the same area as yours. For example, if you have a kitchen product, you would be interested in all the other manufacturers of kitchen products. Try to find a mid-size company. You can then contact the marketing department, say you have a product that has had strong sales success, and that would be a natural fit into their product line. Have a package similar to Wal-mart’s ready to send the marketing person if they have interest. Expect the manufacture to mark-up your price to them a minimum of 33%.

Good Luck

Selling to Wal-mart and Target is difficult, and even if they like your product they will often try to negotiate such a low price that you might have trouble making money. But while difficult, it is not impossible, and small vendors sell to Wal-mart and Target all the time. Just remember if you are rejected at first that you can go out and make additional sales and then go back and try to sell again.

Viral And Bacterial Bronchitis – Revealing The Differences

Diseases affect the lives of people in an adverse way. Therefore, it is necessary to develop healthy habits in order to prevent the occurence of these diseases. Diseases are caused by both virus and bacteria; however, in certain cases, environmental conditions also play a major role in causing certain ailments. For instance, bronchitis, an ailment of the respiratory system, is both viral and bacterial bronchitis. Not many people can tell the difference between viral and bacterial bronchitis. Only a medical practitioner will be able to point out the differences between viral and bacterial bronchitis after a careful examination of the patient and the results of laboratory tests.

Commonly, viruses cause bronchitis. People with viral bronchitis suffer from difficulties in breathing, headache, pain, wheezing, and other symptoms, such as low-grade fever. Patients will have a persistent, nonproductive cough and will not feel that ill. Bacterial bronchitis, on the other hand, is a more dangerous condition. You will suffer from a high fever and a persistent, productive cough with dark, discolored, and thick mucus.

If, along with bronchitis, you have disorders such as cystic fibrosis, asthma, or COPD, home remedies will not suffice. Consult your doctor; he will draw up the perfect treatment plan for you. Doctors can do so by performing the required physical examination and studying your medical history. If your symptoms are mild, a stethoscope examination will suffice; however, if your symptoms are prolonged and severe, you need many more tests, such as chest x-rays.

Just as there is a difference between viral and bacterial bronchitis, there is also a difference between the treatment of these conditions. Viral bronchitis does not really require any treatment. Home remedies can successfully heal a person from this condition. However, it cannot and should not be neglected.

Care should be taken during the healing process. You need to take a lot of rest and increase your fluid intake. Taking more liquids such as fruit juices, water, and soup helps liquify the phlegm and makes it easier for the body to expel it. In case of muscle pains, take acetaminophen. If the symptoms cause a great deal of distress, take cough suppressants or expectorants in order to liquify the mucus. Taking a warm shower or a hot bath also facilitates the expulsion of mucus.

In case of bacterial bronchitis, your doctor will usually prescribe antibiotics such as tetracycline, amoxicillin, and erythromycin. The antibiotic to be taken depends on the strain of the bacteria infecting your bronchial tubes. When you are on antibiotic therapy, you may have side effects characterized by abdominal pain, diarrhea, and nausea. Some bacteria are drug resistant, and recently, the FDA approved the use of a drug called gemiflaoxacin mesylate for such bacteria. It comes in the form of a oral tablet that has to be taken daily for five days. The side effects of this drug are diarrhea, skin rashes, and nausea.

It is not possible to treat a viral infection with antibiotics; attempts to do so will worsen your condition. Before using any drug, consult your doctor and find out if it is safe for you to use that drug. Cardio respiratory exercises help to regain normal lung function and to expel any excess mucus after the completion of the healing process.

Develop hygenic habits to keep viral and bacterial bronchitis at bay. Get yourself vaccinated for flu because it lessens the risk of contracting viral and bacterial bronchitis. Avoid cigarettes, chemical fumes, smoke, and other pollutants because these are also the major causes of bronchitis.

Normally, people fall sick once in a while. But if you live in polluted conditions and have unhealthy habits such as alcohol consumption and cigarette smoking, you will fall ill many times. Make a serious effort toward good health, and while you are healthy, keep some money aside so that you can handle medical costs easily in case you fall ill.

Online Marketing Strategies & Tips – 3 Key Areas

Online marketing and advertising is constantly and exponentially on the rise, with digital media becoming a core component of many businesses’ marketing strategy. We all know that starting out is not easy and budgets are limited. This article provides some cost effective ways of promoting your website effectively without breaking the budget.

Banner Ads

Sceptics say Web Banners are too common and provide a low return on investment. However, when targeted at the right audience, Banner Ads can provide a great source of qualified traffic.

You need to approach Banner Advertising like pay per click keyword phrases. It makes no sense to target generic phrases for which there’s already too much competition. Sometimes it’s best to find an odd phrase to attract highly targeted traffic. The same rules apply for Banners. There’s no point targeting generic websites with high traffic because the Ad Space is expensive, highly competitive and may not be targeted.

Consider what types of websites or blogs your target market visits. Seek out these sites and ask to place your Banner Ad in a prominent position, preferably their home page. Some blog or site owners may not even have any other advertisers displayed, which means they might not know to monetize their blog.

You can then negotiate lower rates or even a trial placement

Visit an Ad Space Auction website to compare online Advertising Space for sale.

Directories

Submit your website to as many business and specialty directories as you can. Some provide a free link whilst others charge. Dmoz.org is a most valuable resource as well as the Yahoo Directory. Its results are fed to thousands of smaller focused directories. However it can take weeks if not months to get listed because websites must be approved manually.

In the meantime you should be submitting your website to other directories relating to your subject area. Look for industry specific, vertical market, local, general business, professional membership and trade association directories.

Create a spreadsheet to keep track. Most applications are need to be made via an online form. Avoid the risk of not being found, or being rejected, by taking the time to find the best category and making sure your site is 100% complete. Look at the categories your competitors are listed in and also the ones that come up first for searches which accurately correspond to your website.

Articles

Writing an effective article provides your website with long term quality contextual links – the best kind. It also establishes you as an expert in your field. You can submit keyword rich informative text to e-zines, who are constantly looking for new content. You might even be able to write an article about your products or services and comply with the editorial guidelines. Once published, your article will be distributed to the ezine’s subscribers.

The resource box enables you to be credited with authorship together with a hyperlink to your website or email address. This is where you promote yourself, not in the article body. The purpose of the article body is to provide informative content. Readers won’t tolerate a sales pitch.

Be sure to focus on e-zines with the same target audience and a large subscriber base. You may also like to submit your work to an article bank. Publishers visit article banks on a regular basis to search for articles to include in their collection, with your resource box attached of course.

Marketing and advertising have become one and the same in the online world. Traditional advertising rules no longer apply as the lines blur between presenting your message and interacting with your targeted audience.

When implementing your campaign, it’s important to remember that consumers don’t wish to be sold to; they want to be informed and entertained.

Audience: Marketing in the Age of Subscribers, Fans and Followers

Audience: Marketing in the Age of Subscribers, Fans and Followers

Jetzt kaufen

Proprietary audience development is now a core marketing responsibility.

Every company needs audiences to survive.  They are where you find new customers and develop more profitable relationships.  And yet, most companies today treat their email, mobile, and social media audiences like afterthoughts instead of the corporate assets they are. 

With AUDIENCE, Jeff Rohrs seeks to change this dynamic through adoption of The Audience Imperative.  This powerful mandate challenges all companies to use their paid, owned, and earned media to not only sell in the short-term but also increase the size, engagement, and value of their proprietary audiences over the long-term. 

As content marketing professionals have discovered, the days of “build it and they will come” are long gone.  If you’re looking for a way to gain a lasting advantage over your competition, look no further and start building your email, Facebook, Google, Instagram, mobile app, SMS, Twitter, website, and YouTube audiences to last.

How to Do a Push Press

The Push Press is a great exercise for building your core, functional (real world, usable) strength and extremely stable shoulders and rotator cuff. Learning how to do this exercise correctly can help you add some variety, intensity and a new twist to your current workouts.

What is a Push Press?

A Push Press looks just like a standing Overhead Shoulder Press but with the assistance of the legs. This makes it an excellent full body exercise. Typically a person can Push Press up to 30% more weight than they can handle with a strict overhead press. This does not mean that the form is sloppy and you throw the weight up, quite the contrary, you need BETTER form on a Push Press since there is more emphasis on movement and your core needs to be protected.

Setting up for a Push Press

Stance: You want to begin with a good solid stance. Since you are standing, you want to build a good foundation before picking up and holding weight. Stance should be with your feet directly under your shoulders, pointed straight ahead. Your legs are straight, no bend in the hips. Abs are tight.

Holding or “racking” the bar

You are holding the bar up under your chin, but the bar should be resting on your upper shoulders with your elbows slightly ahead of the bar. This is similar to how you would see someone holding the bar after an olympic clean or power clean but not quite as exaggerated. The key is the have the bar resting on a “groove” in each shoulder. An easy way to find this groove is to do what is called a Frankenstein position with your arms straight ahead place a broomstick across your shoulders until the broomstick finds a groove to sit in, now you know the place to “rack” or rest the bar.

So now you have the stance correct and you have the bar resting in the groove with your hands around the bar ready to begin the push press…

How to do the actual Push Press

The Push Press movement is initiated from the legs first. You dip down and quickly “pop” up to get the bar moving. The bar is resting in that groove so the power from the movement comes from the legs and is transferred up the torso to the bar. The arms are not involved yet.

The “dip” is done by keeping your torso completely straight up and down and bending just at the knees and slightly at the hips. You only need to come down about 10-20% as this is not a squat, just a dip. Its all you need to explosively push that bar upwards with your legs.

Now transfer the energy and finish with the arms

The dip is fast and explodes up getting the bar moving upwards off the shoulders now you should be concentrating on pushing with the arms to an overhead locked position. The chin should move back slightly to allow the bar to travel past. Once the bar is clear of your head you can push it back forward again. The bar should be travelling in a straight line with you getting out of the way of the bar. No wasted energy manipulating the bar, the weights are heavy enough that once you get the bar moving, you have to keep it moving.

Remember: the “dip” is quick, no stalling at the bottom. Think “down and pop!”

Once that bar has passed your head lock your arms with the weight fully overhead. Shoulders should be elevated and arms locked. This is called an Active Shoulder position.

The finished Push Press should have the bar overhead and an imaginary straight line from the weight to elbows, to ears, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles all perpendicular to the ground. No swaying and no arching. This ensures your skeletal structure is holding the weight now and you are not “muscling” it.

Some Tips to Remember and Review:

1. Strong supported stance with the bar “racked” and ready to press

2. Dip quickly and explode up getting the bar moving

3. Tuck the chin slightly out of the way to allow the bar to pass while beginning to push upwards with the arms

4. Transfer the upwards movement by pushing the the arms more

5. Lock out the bar in the overhead position

The Push Press can be a fun addition to your strength training, functional exercise routine or just a new addition to circuit training. It has many uses that are not just for “power” or “muscle building” but also can burn a lot of calories and help you with real world applicable strength. Add this great exercise into your workouts for some a new way to keep things fresh and by learning something technical, useful and fun!
