This is the discipline of marketing that relates to manufacturers/producers increasing the demand at wholesaler or distributor, as well as retailer levels without disrupting brand management activities at the consumer level. Its effectiveness reflects a strong strategic alliance between manufacturers/producers and the distributors/retailers. Parties develop joint activities of promotion, merchandising, advertising with the final objectives of creating comparative preference for the particular product or brand so as to increase, through the retail outlet, the demand from the end user.

  • Distributor/Dealer and Retailer Development and Management
  • Sales fundamentals that include Distribution, Display, Promotion and Price effectiveness
