5 tips to start a distribution company

When we have an entrepreneurial spirit and in our heads the idea of ​​creating company, we do perhaps by the desire to fulfill a dream, a market opportunity, or simply the desire to have higher incomes; sometimes based on experience in a market or simply the desire to fulfill that dream so desired.

keep-that-entrepreneurial-spirit-6P4J2IC-x-large

For a company is not enough just to be a good entrepreneur, nor good entrepreneur with great administrative skills, leadership, marketing and knowledge of a target market, when you think about being your own boss and start a distributor must take several items into account in this case mention five, no order of magnitude as all are important and should not be let out when analyzing our new distributor:

1. Type of products to be distributed

When we think of distributing we must consider what kind of products we offer, is not the same distributed pencils oranges, bone must think whether they are perishable or products, if expire or not, since it is very important when make the purchase of these products to distribute, purchase or deliver products with a short shelf life, but the risk that soon we will be returning the product if it has not been finalized before the sale is made under a promotion run by producing losses due date for returns.

2. Place or area to distribute

We must be clear that area or in areas which are our customers, our target market, whether it is a small area within the same city or if instead we must travel miles to reach our customers.

3. Transport

Based on the previous item the “square or distributing zone”, the shipping or carriage marks a significant percentage of the costs in the financial analysis of the company, this must be very clear if you plan to drive like a real distributor or simply be handled very rudimentary with saving money shipping with the same suppliers (sometimes they can support), which for me is not ideal for the risk taken by unforeseen at the time of release, this issue it could expand later in another issue to deal with.

4. Negotiation with suppliers

All items mentioned in this article are very important, however, think this item is the pacesetter if really worth starting a distribution company, whether or not, many production companies or manufacturers do not have a distribution channel and want to start operations in a particular area which require companies that know the area, the customers, who already have a covered market, but if there is no clear negotiation, loyalty and respect in the negotiation, before long when products recognized, the supplier may or pretend to continue to sell directly to customers who already works the distributor, so it is extremely important to be clear when negotiating the clear policies, although currently little business is handled exclusively be great to concretize, to avoid the aforementioned

5. Trade Policy with suppliers

When you have a distribution can be purchased in cash or credit depends on the marketing policies of our supplier and our purchasing power, for which we must take into account in trade policy when selling, if we buy cash must sell contact, but it has a good profit margin and excellent financial muscle to finance customers when the cash is not sold on credit but, obviously at great risk money on its customers; if the contrary is bought on credit and sold on credit, the ideal is to seek the return time of the money distributed is less than the time that you must cancel providers but we would again finance customers and running the risk that our portfolio have a longer time than we should cancel our suppliers, and perhaps soon be in the hands of customers, suppliers, and banks seeking loans to finance our customers.

  • Affinity u_e User: Interaction between two users
  • w_e Weight Posted: Shared, I like it, comment.
  • d_e Post Time: The longer you take, the less important the publication.

It has never happened to you one day think, “Paco will be deleted me from Facebook?

  • Private messages you have sent and vice versa.
  • I like you and comments received by Paco in their publications.

  • Friends in common you have with him.

All these factors are shown in the formula Edgerank, and influencing a story appears on our wall or not, be aware that some people have more than 500 friends and not all information 500 will appear only a few, those few are decided by the formula.

What does make a Facebook page to get more hits in their publications?

1- Scan your fans:

It is essential that you know when the best time to share content, as well, Facebook gives you the option to schedule a publication, take advantage. But how do you know when is the ideal time to have more views? Very easy, register at: http://edgerankchecker.com/

Additionally, this page will give your number Edgerank and tell what day and what time there are more fans connected (only need to generate and implement Heatmap range of past dates to compare): The green color will tell you more hours

2- Interact with them to the fullest:

Why if I have 5,000 fans on Facebook a post has 100 views

Try to answer all the comments made, mentioning the person. Put a comment I like to do etc. The user has to see that there is an interaction with him and it is more likely to respond again.

3- Create interesting content:

Give value to your Facebook page to share interesting content for your fans. Discounts, curious images (that deal with your industry / environment obviously) have to try to create post that you think people are going to share, please ask yourself before your skin and if you would share this publication with your friends.

Adapt your online store to the new rules of Ecommerce

If you have an online store in Spain, you should know that a few weeks ago has come into force new regulations Ecommerce and distance selling, regulating Internet sales in our country and has as main objective to protect consumers. Although still few ecommerces have already adapted to the new law, I will indicate some of the most important points to touch, so if you analyze your business online meet the most important aspects of it.

Ecommerce

Information prior to placing the order

Before a user completes an order at your online store, you should report the main characteristics of the product or service offered, including the following information:

  • Identity of the seller including contact details, cif, trade name and data entry in the Commercial Register
  • Features of the product or service contracted
  • Delivery Order
  • Total cost, including transportation costs, payment details
  • In case of returns, report that shipping is the responsibility of the buyer
  • Report when appropriate, the existence of technical assistance and after sales service

Right of withdrawal – Returns

Perhaps this is the most important point of the new law. The right of withdrawal is defined as the right of return of the product. With the previous law, the user buying via web had 7 days to return the product purchased from now, this period is extended to 14 days. Moreover, and here is a section that I consider vital appears is that in the case of not informing consumers of this right of withdrawal , the period is automatically extended up to 12 months after the expiry of the initial period, ie, would later up to 12 months and 14 days from the date of purchase for a refund without the seller can do anything, so it is essential that you apply this standard from now. Also you must include a model withdrawal form to your web site if the user has to use.

Purchase confirmation button

One aspect that requires the new law is to inform explicitly the obligation to purchase by the Internet user when closing an order, in the case involving a payment obligation. The payment button that we must include the phrase “order with payment obligation” or a similar expression but not ambiguous but that is easily readable and indicating that placing the order entails the obligation to pay . The law also states that are valid expressions as “pay now”, “buy now” or “confirm purchase” but not valid expressions like “confirm”, “register” or “order now” if not listed this expression The consumer is not obligated to pay, so watch this item. Here I leave an example of how the confirmation button would buy:

Business calls

Most notable in this section is that a schedule for conducting sales calls ranging from 9.00 to 21.00 Monday to Friday, except public holidays are fixed. Calls must be made from a phone number that can be identified by the user, are not worth the hidden numbers to sell a product or service and also inform the start of each call the commercial purpose of the same.
