How Challenger Brands Can Grow Distribution at Major Retailers

Mark and Robb welcome Roberto Carli of Alloy, a company that works with manufacturers of consumer products to overcome challenges with data and inventory. 

Retailers are pushing fewer vendors these days, but buyers understand that innovation and higher margins come from smaller players. That means it has never been easier for small companies or startups to break into major retail, if they’re prepared. 

Mark, Robb and Roberto talk about why vendors need to find access and to actually use retailer data, even when buyers also have access. To capture as many sales as possible and keep a favorable relationship with buyers, you need to plan properly for inventory. Throughout their discussion, they offer practical advice for vendors about being better prepared and more knowledgeable about managing your supply and relationships with retailers.
