1 Distribution Channel Management Week 5

2 End in Mind of DCM Creative Marketing Activity no.1 -Easy to Access, Provide Call to Action- No matter how good any products or services deliver good value, No matter how well its been promoted, and No matter how desperate their consumers want it, “IT HAS TO BE IN POSITION THAT GIVES CONSUMERS EASY ACCESS TO IT”

3 What does it means to give consumers an easy access? Define your consumer/shopper buying location preferences. (questionnaires) Define any other products that is bought along with your product. That’s the products that is become your products’ adjacent category. (basket analysis, scan data analysis, member buying pattern analysis) Now, from that information you’ll have list of channel and places that give easy access to your consumers.

4 How to make your products available at channel choices? Conventional or Internet Channel. Do you need a distributor, wholesaler, reseller or agents to effectively deliver your products to the end retailer? Is there any indirect distribution needed to reach more end retailer? Choose your methods that the most effective for you from all distribution route possibilities available. (The cheapest = lowest cost/end retailer covered)

5 Positive Consideration of using Distributor as Distribution Intermediary Intermediaries usually provide a readymade network of end retailer that available to be supplied with our products, otherwise it will take us years and costs to establish such network Distributors are objective. They are not tied to one product or manufacturer. So they can arrange products portfolio that appeal to each of their customer (end retailers) Distributor can spread the costs of stocking and selling one product over all the items they carry, thereby distributing them at lower cost compare to “if” the manufacturer distribute them by themselves Distributor works is rewarded with discount off the selling price, therefore there is no capital investment needed from the manufacturer. The capital support needed for Distributor is in term of Credit Terms Distributor might have good knowledge of specific channel or local area that the manufacturer might not possess

6 Negative Consideration of using Distributor as Distribution Intermediary Distributor are not tied to one product or manufacturer. Their interest are mainly to serve their customer with the best prices and service, while maximizing their profit. They tend to make product portfolio offering to their customer base on profit calculation. If you are not giving competitive profit for Distributor, you can end up knowing your product is neglected. They may use one of their manufacturer’s product for their own promotional activity. They can offer price discount for your product just to be able to sell another product to the customers. Distributor tend to toughen their payment terms to their manufacturer, and their collection terms to their customers. Beware of securing your Payment Terms from Distributors
