Sales and Distribution Plan

...Sales and Distribution Plan Remember, the primary goal of the marketing plan is to get people to buy your products or services. The Sales and Distribution part of the marketing plan details how this is going to happen. Traditionally there are three parts to the Sales and Distribution section of the marketing plan, although all three parts may not apply to your business. 1) Outline the distribution methods to be used. How is your product or service going to get to the customer? For instance, will you distribute your product or service through a Web site, through the mail, through sales representatives, or through retail? What distribution channel is going to be used? In a direct distribution channel, the product or service goes directly from the manufacturer to the consumer. In a one stage distribution channel it goes from manufacturer to retailer to consumer. The traditional distribution channel is from manufacturer to wholesaler to retailer to consumer. Outline all the different companies, people and/or technologies that will be involved in the process of getting your product or service to your customer. What are the costs associated with distribution? What are the delivery terms? How will the distribution methods affect production time frames or delivery? (How long will it take to get your product or service to your customer?) If your business involves selling a product, you should also include information about inventory levels and......
