We wanted to help Entrepreneurs with their go-to-market strategy, and make it easier for them to get their foot in the door with Retail Buyers and other purchasing professionals.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 07, 2013
Pitch a Product, an online platform that pairs Entrepreneurs, Inventors and Manufacturers with Buyers, Distributors, Wholesalers, and Independent Sales Reps announces a September launch date. Just like an episode of the infamous Shark Tank, this website allows innovators who are introducing new products to the market, or expanding their reach, to give their best elevator pitch through the power of online video. However, instead of simply speaking to just 5 investors, they are now connecting to a global audience of potential purchasing professionals and manufacturers’ sales reps who are actively looking for innovative ideas, new products and trends.
Pitch a Product’s Co-Owner Lisa Taylor says that she and her husband, Kristian Taylor, started the company because, “We wanted to help Entrepreneurs with their go-to-market strategy, and make it easier for them to get their foot in the door with Retail Buyers and other purchasing professionals; from big box stores like Target and Walmart, all the way down to mom and pop shops. Not everyone knows how to get a product to market, or how to launch a product, and the process of connecting to decision makers can be overwhelming. We wanted to alleviate the need to exhibit at costly trade shows and make exhaustive cold calls – finally the elevator pitch has caught up with the 21st century.” Kristian Taylor likes to remind first time users that, “Now, for just $2.19 a day you will have exposure to thousands of hard to reach buyers, distributors, wholesalers and manufacturers’ representatives who can help you find distribution; that’s less than the cost of a latte.”
According to Retail Solutions, a large Retail Execution Management Firm that represents industry giants such as P&G, “Each year, well over 100,000 new products are introduced into the US retail industry.” However, the mass majority of those new products released are created by huge corporate brands such as Apple, Johnson & Johnson, or General Electric. If you are a new entrepreneur or inventor with no connections, competing for those store shelf spots is next to impossible. Pitch a Product aims to level the playing field – and they take no commission.
Pitch a Product is offering free 3 month memberships to Entrepreneurs for a limited time. The free trial will begin once the company launches its website in September 2013. Once the trial period is over, users can continue for just $99/per month, or choose another option from their flexible rate plans. Buyers, Distributors, Wholesalers, and Manufacturers’ Sales Representatives looking for new inventions & new products to sell to their customers, are also encouraged to sign up for free and will be notified of the company’s formal launch.
