Evaluating Competitors

As a distributor of a particular brand - take a look at how other distributors are getting their supplier brands out from the warehouse and onto the shelves. By identifying the distribution channels competitors use, you may find better ways to do things.

For instance, if you currently distribute a wine brand to a retailer - you may discover that taking a look at how other distributors are getting their supplier brands on the shelves might provide you with technical assistance. It will help you push your supplier brands to the retailers rather than the competitor's offerings.

Here are some points for the distributors to keep in mind while choosing the right supplier brands and help them to penetrate their target market and maintain scalability.

  • Ask the supplier if he is willing to support the brand with time, money and product to help generate sales.
  • Identify the supplier brand and list its key competitive advantage assets.
  • Do I have a marketing strategy that will be beneficial to the supplier brand in penetrating the market?
  • Does the supplier brand have a complete range of the products ready for commercial sale?
  • Does the supplier brand have the volumes of liquor that he is going to sell available for consistent, uninterrupted supply?
  • Is the price for the liquor appropriate for their target market, including your margin?
  • Is all packaging of the brand up to commercial standards, including bar codes?
  • Has the supplier brand written down the sales goals that they want to achieve from the distribution over the short to medium term?
  • Does the supplier brand realize that by simply signing with a distributor, consistent and growing sales are not guaranteed?
  • Does the supplier brand fully understand that the distributor-supplier relationship is more of a partnership, with both parties working together to generate sales?

Communicating the above points with your supplier brand will make it easy for you to know the brand as well as it will help you come up with a strategy to distribute the brand in the market.
