How to land a deal with Target, etc...??

by 5 comments
Hey everybody,

My buddy suggested I sign up here and ask some questions since he's had great experiences here.

I recently purchased a website that sells instructional videos in one niche.

The videos were contracted out to different people. Of the videos, about 7 of them were shot by the same person (let's call him Steve).

While doing some research on that person, I noticed that he landed a deal with Target to have one of his videos sold on the shelves. I tried getting in touch with him to no avail.

But I'm wondering what is the best way of trying to contact Target (or Wal-Mart) to see if they're interested in my videos that I own that were shot by Steve.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions,

    Large corporations like Target, Wal-Mart, and the others usually only deal with sales reps from established sales companies.

    If you are serious you should attend a trade show and do some networking with sales reps. If your product looks good to a rep they will approach their company about selling it. As far as Target goes, you really would not have much of a say as to where the rep's company should push your product. They know more outlets than you can imagine.

      Actually - Wal-Mart has a 'local vendor' program, and they actually will work with small local companies and do a regional test for your product if they like it.

      BUT - and this is a big but! - the pricing that Wal-Mart DEMANDS is often so low that a small company cannot meet the demands of the product and stay in business.

      Still - give it a whirl! Many of the major chains have a lot of the contact information for vendors right on their websites.
