Wholesale: 3 solutions to accelerate your growth

Wholesale: 3 solutions to the problems blocking wholesalers' growth

Being a wholesaler is not an easy job. You have to adapt to a constantly changing competitive environment. To stay competitive, it’s best to avoid mistakes. Stock management problems, lack of online visibility, unqualified staff… Here are 3 problems commonly encountered by wholesalers and 3 easy solutions to boost the growth of your business.

Problem 1: No data on the health of the business

To succeed as a wholesaler, you need to be able to make the right decisions at the right time. Leading wholesalers rely on relevant data to guide every choice they make. This allows them to plan and forecast demand accurately.

What data do you have access to? And what about the health of your business? Without data, you’re forced to make decisions by feel… You have no idea what retailers want from you. You feel lost when it comes to restocking or validating your positions. Beware, these time-consuming and irrelevant decisions compromise the growth of your company.

In the past, you had to call in an expert to extract the information and give it value. Today, everything is easier thanks to real-time data analysis tools. These tools are essential for :
Improve your communication, add value to the best products, and increase stocks of the best-selling goods.
Forecast future sales by analysing previous purchases by retailers.
Gain a 360° view to meet retailer requirements and provide the best possible customer experience.
Optimise your sales spend and logistics by reducing costs and risks.

Problem 2: Low online visibility

Today, the world of wholesale has been turned upside down by digital technology. As a result of the economic and health crises, which limit travel, retailers have changed their habits. They are moving away from physical purchases, in showrooms or shops, to online purchases. Wholesalers are therefore forced to rethink their sales strategy and turn to the Internet to remain competitive and visible.

But how to sell wholesale on the Internet ?

Creating an e-commerce site, animating social networks, registering in directories… Many solutions exist. Most wholesalers tend to favour WhatsApp.The application allows them to answer retailers’ questions quickly and to share their product catalogue easily. But this tool has its limits. Wholesalers who use WhatsApp often face management and productivity problems. Difficulty in managing sales, lack of organisation… Every day, unforeseen events cause them to lose time and money, precious hours that could be spent on
developing their business.

As a result, wholesalers who have not changed their business model are gradually disappearing from the fashion market. The sector is being taken over by retail giants like Shein. The basis for this is fast production, constantly changing clothes at low prices, and cascading promotions.

The phenomenon of fast fashion threatens to eliminate the wholesaler as a key intermediary in the distribution chain.

Lack of tools and qualified staff

In order to run his business, the wholesaler needs to hire staff.
But, as you know, it is difficult to find talent capable of counting and retaining all the references,
managing a whole warehouse, and ensuring contact between the showroom and the retailers in a reactive way.

Lack of qualified personnel wastes time, increases your company’s operating costs and hinders the development of your business. Confusion, miscalculations and management errors multiply and lead to a significant loss of money.
