Casting a Broad Net

The first step in selling to bottled and bulk water retail businesses is to take a broad approach to the marketplace. Strategies that focus exclusively on the local market are not likely to succeed in an environment that is becoming increasingly reliant on e-commerce and other long distance marketing channels.

Although a geographic concentration may be a useful strategy for new sellers, you will eventually need to broaden your focus to include prospects outside of your initial range. You can also broaden your prospect base by expanding your product line or by creating strategic partnerships with suppliers of complementary goods.

Market Aggressively

Ambitious marketing factors into bottled and bulk water retail business sales success. A combination of tight competition, multichannel approaches and emerging marketing technologies mean that you'll need to flawlessly execute your strategy to capture the attention of decision makers.

A large portion of your marketing efforts should focus on channeling leads to your sales force. Lead lists are a genuinely powerful resource in lead generation and can be purchased cost-effectively from Experian and other reliable third-party providers.

Sales Incentives

Whenever possible, you want your sales force to be self-motivated to perform at a high level. But to encourage constant improvement, consider offering sales incentives to sales reps that exceed bottled and bulk water retail business sales targets.

Incentives don't have to be cost-prohibitive -- sometimes just recognizing an employee's worth to the organization is more valuable than an expensive incentive that lacks recognition or prestige.
