Understanding Diaper Distribution
One thing about diaper distribution is that is follows a kind of franchise model that gives the distributors some kind of monopoly in the city they are licensed by the diaper brand to represent them.
This kind of diaper distribution model is like network marketing. The distributor gets to have some sub-distributors (up to 2 or 3 of them), where they are allowed, and as many as the number of retailers that are interested.
So, the diaper distributor buys directly from the diaper brand its representing, at a discounted price, and the sub-distributors and retailers buy either directly from the distributor or in the case of the sub-distributor, buying from the diaper brand owner directly.
Whatever form or shape yours might take, works pretty the same way. Although the idea is built on some form of exclusivity.
Who’s A Diaper Distributor
I’m not trying to define a distributor for you. You probably know that already, and no amount of English language can rephrase it better than how you already understand it in the Nigerian context. But what I want to explain to you is what you need to have if you want to become a diaper distributor.
A diaper distributor may not different from distributors of other products, excerpt for the diaper. Your an as well apply this information to becoming a distributor for any product in Nigeria. It works pretty much the same way. If you are ready then let’s get into the details. These are your starter plan to get you started.The first thing you must consider important as a distributor is a store. I’m only simplifying it with a store, but it should be a big store, if you cannot afford a warehouse. The reason I’m considering a store as first thing instead of money, which in some case should be the primary requirement, is because there are some distributorship opportunities that might consider your location above capital injection. I will come to that later.The next thing you need is money. The reason money is second is because you can get stock loan from your bank as an option, and your diaper company can also give you stock and you pay after sales. However, you will be needing money as well, whichever way you are going to get it.RELATED POST: How To Make Money Selling Baby Diaper In Nigeria
The Best Secret Of A DistributorNow, let me explain the secret of a diaper distributor. I’m still explaining who is a diaper distributor. I’m only breaking it into modules so as to help you grasp the whole idea properly. You and I know that the title of a distributor is not a degree qualification but one you can achieve yourself.Hat I consider your three best secret is stock availability, your store location and the number of retailers buying products from you. Early I just gave you the starter plan. Here, I’m expanding on it based on the usage, and I have also included the third one, which is retailers. You cannot be a good distributor without retailers.I mentioned stock as one, then stock location as number two, while number is retailers. The availability and use of these three things is what makes you a distributor. So, if you want to be the best diaper distributor you must seek to have all the three basic things I have just described for you.I will explain further on the three and even show you how to get about them effectively:Diaper Stock AvailabilityThe most important secret about your diaper distribution business is stock availability. You can’t sell what you don’t have in stock. That’s why you need to ensure stock is always available to sell to your customers.Out of stock issues can harm your business more than you would know. The real experience of business is that everyone is trying to make money, and when you are constantly out of stock, your customers start thinking of other places they can get their stock from. Once that idea is instilled in them, you have a problem in keeping their loyalty to your business.One of the way to avoid out of stock is to ensure you have regular stock supply plan. It’s not only making sure your diaper company would keep having stock, but that you also have the money and the space to stock large quantity of diapers.Best Store LocationAlso, your location is important to the business. The best location is not just about using a prime business centre, it also has to do with accessibility and cost for your retailers. Your location should be such that is easier to access and cost retailers less to transport diapers to their various locations.You have to envisage cost for your retailers, unless you are paying for their transportation. Retailers make smaller profit because they sell in retail packs. So they not like a diaper distributor that sell in large stock quantity, and therefore makes profit in bulk sales. Your location should not only be important to you but also to your retailers.Active Number Of RetailersYou cannot even be successful as a diaper distributor if you don’t have good number of retailers buying from you. As a diaper distributor, you major customers are the retailers. The more of them loyal to you the more profitable your business would be. This loyal can cost you something. It’s either because your diaper brand is a fast selling brand or they are enjoying better discounts and incentives.The retailers are your sales point. The more active retailers you have the more sales points for your business. Your business is helped or destroyed by these retailers. While some brand owners allow this last line of the marketing run freely in the hands of retailers, some smart ones controls their products down to the retailers.Although, as a diaper distributor you can’t do much to control retailers under you but you can try to manage them by keeping close contact and communicating frequently with them about the business or products.Every new baby diapers undergone rigorous laboratory tests and analysis in Nigeria for quality and safety by the National Agency for Food & Drugs Administration & Control (NAFDAC), as well as the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON) and must be certified to be of good quality and safe before approved for sale in Nigeria.
