Wholesale Trends To Look Out For In 2019

What are the top wholesale trends to look out for in 2019? This blog will give you 10 trends that you can look out for to help grow your business throughout the coming year. These trends apply to small and large businesses looking to grow and progress their company.   1. Brexit uncertainty With Brexit happening this year and still no deal, how is it going to affect the economy within the wholesale trade? This uncertainty would impact all companies doing business with the EU and see prices change including shipping costs, tariffs and more. Some business will be searching for new suppliers as a result of Brexit and localise their supply chain within the UK, whereas others will choose to keep suppliers in the EU. 2. Offline ordering catalogue It is always beneficial to save valuable time and productivity for your company, but how can you do this? Cutting out paper catalogues and going digital has many advantages from saving countless time manually importing orders to your back-office system to decreasing the number of orders that may be lost.   SalesPresenter is the perfect way to kick start your journey to go digital. We are the current leaders for a sales ordering catalogue for the Apple iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. 2.

Bath House Testimonial

What does Bath House have to say about SalesPresenter and their experience with Blue Alligator? Last week Corey our account manager and Callan our marketing executive, went to the Lake District. They visited Bath House to see how they were getting on and what impact SalesPresenter has made to their business. Bath House was kind enough to give a testimonial about their experience with Blue Alligator and how SalesPresenter benefits them.   We asked a few questions whilst visiting Bath House, below is the responses we got!   Problems before Blue Alligator “SalesPresenter has saved us so much time. After a trade fair, for example, we just come back with hundreds of orders, all on paper, all to hand put into Sage. I was here every weekend just imputing orders into Sage because the phones were just so busy during the week. Taking orders over the phone once again onto paper and then having to input them into Sage. Now with an iPad by your desk, somebody rings an order through we put it straight onto Blue Alligator. It’s there on Sage as soon as the uploads done.”   How has the support team been? "Reece who was developing the site for us has been second to none, nothing was an issue."   Overall how well is SalesPresenter working for you? "SalesPresenter has saved us so much time. After a trade fair, for example, we just come back with hundreds of orders, all on paper, all to hand put them into Sage."   To see the full testimonial given to us from Bath House, click the video below!

Benefits Of Up-selling And Cross-selling

What are the benefits of up-selling and cross-selling? Check out some useful information below on why these types of features are some of the best tools for your reps.   Up-selling Customers will look at the relevance of your products and how they can be of benefit. Up-selling offers products like the item they are viewing at a slightly higher price, maybe a different brand or larger size, with more benefits and of a better quality.   Customers are given variants and options to enhance their offering which in turn allows reps to increase average order value.  You will retain customer loyalty as you are offering them a better product that may also give them a significantly higher return.   Price One key aspect of upselling is based around price. Depending on your business’s target market will have a large influence on the pricing of your products. Consider entering both markets and using pricing variations to do so:   1. Have product ranges that fit the bill for the high volume low price customers. It can be very easy to sell lots of low-cost items and move them fast. 2. Separate out your higher-end products to try and attack the Marks and Sparks of the world. At the same time, you must add value to your upsells. Add more product content and take the time to explain the benefits of paying more.   Cross-selling Cross-selling is very different to up-selling. Where up-selling says to sell the same type of product in a larger or higher priced alternative, cross-selling aims to build additional lines into the order.   There has been a significant increase in order volume highlighted in our customer base through the use of linked products and effective product filtering. When a rep sits with a customer and has…
