We teach entrepreneurs the key steps of selling to retailers.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 6, 2009
As the American economy evolves and puts strain on the average worker, Retailbound is offering the opportunity for inventors and entrepreneurs to make their great idea or innovative product come to life. For laid-off employees that now have time to invest in their product invention, or for entrepreneurs seeking a side business, Retailbound is a resource for expert guidance and strategies on the path to selling those products to retailers. Entrepreneurs and inventors can visit http://www.retailbound.com for information on their retail coaching and consulting services.
Many entrepreneurs have amazing ideas or products, but have no idea how to begin the process of getting their product into the hands of retail buyers. Enter Regina Jacob, Vice-President of Retailbound. Her retail coaches/consultants have at minimum of fifteen years experience in the retail industry. Unlike most retail consultants out there in the marketplace, the consultants who work at Retailbound have both sold to retailers as well as have been senior retail buyers at major retailers in the US. Having "both sides of the retail buyer's desk" approach brings a fresh perspective of the merchandising industry to their clients.
The majority of product entrepreneurs that visit Retailbound, about 65 percent, says Jacob, have a product concept or idea, but have never sold to a retailer. A quarter of her clients has a fully developed product to sell, is in small retail shops and wants to sell to larger retailers. A smaller percentage of her clients are in large retailers but are looking to expand their existing business.
"Retailbound helps inventors turn their invention into a real business," Jacob said. "We teach entrepreneurs the key steps of selling to retailers." Jacob also works with established retail suppliers to help improve their business at a particular retailer.
The in-demand services of Retailbound bring a fresh perspective to a stale economy. Faced with job loss, many new inventors may see the opportunity to take their idea or product to the next level, either supplementing their income or starting a full-time business, but do not have the resources or expertise for a successful start. Taking advantage of a consulting firm like Retailbound can be the difference between treading through unfamiliar territory versus creating a lucrative and thriving business.
"The coaches at Retailbound are GREAT! Yohan, one of our retail coaches is very professional and has amazing coaching skills in guiding you through the retail 'jungle,'" says Christine Holland, President of Drinkmarx (http://www.drinkmarx.com ), a production company for reusable beverage markers. "He is very personable and always available for questions. If you are thinking of bringing a new product to market (or currently trying), I would HIGHLY recommend Retailbound services to help make your experience a success!"
