Building relationships with the industry’s best reps

Feb 21, 2024 | Business

Do you have a favourite product rep? Has a good rep saved your bacon with a perfect product solution?

Here at KBDi, we firmly believe in the value of building relationships with the industry’s best reps. When you attend our Chapter Events, getting to know these product representatives should be your top objective. Yes, the food and drinks are great, and the fabulous company of your peers is a plus, but using the opportunity to get to know your local reps in a social setting shouldn’t be last on the list.

Building relationships with sales representatives can be highly beneficial for various reasons. Here are our top five:

1. Insider Product Knowledge
Sales reps often possess in-depth knowledge about the products or services they sell. By building relationships with them, you gain access to valuable insights about product features, benefits, and practical case studies. This knowledge can help you make informed decisions about which products or services best suit your clients’ needs.

2. Access to Exclusive Deals and Discounts
Sales reps often have the authority to offer their clients special deals, discounts, or promotions. By fostering a positive relationship with them, you may be able to access exclusive offers that aren’t available to the general public. This can result in cost savings for you and your clients and improved value of your purchases.

3. Tailored Solutions and Support
Sales reps can work with you to understand your specific requirements and preferences. By building a relationship with them, you can receive personalised recommendations and solutions tailored to your needs. Additionally, they can provide ongoing support and assistance, helping you troubleshoot issues or address concerns as they arise.

4. Early Access to New Products or Services
Sales reps often have early access to new products or services before they are released to the public. By maintaining a solid relationship with your reps, you may be among the first to learn about upcoming launches or updates. This can give you a competitive edge and allow you to stay ahead of the curve.

5. Networking Opportunities
Building relationships with sales reps can also expand your professional network. They often interact with individuals and businesses across various industries, providing you with opportunities to connect with potential partners, clients, or collaborators. Networking with sales reps can open doors to new opportunities and facilitate mutually beneficial partnerships.

In summary, building relationships with sales representatives can offer numerous benefits, including access to insider knowledge, exclusive deals, personalised support, early access to new products, and expanded networking opportunities. These relationships can help you make more informed decisions, save costs, and stay ahead in your industry.

Our Round One events kick off this week. If you haven’t registered for your local event yet, check out the lineup and secure your spot here.
