How do I sell a new soft drink to convenience stores?
I got a new job as a salesman for a soft drink. How do I sell this product to stores? 711, Circle K etc. I have never been in sales so don't even know where to begin. Do I contact the headquarters?

The best way to sell something is to ask people to give you money in exchange for it.

Yes contact teh headquarters and go to the stores where you want to sell it and have the mangers try it and if they like it then they will probably start selling it for you.

Footwork, the same as everyone else that sells to convenience stores. You have to visit each store and convince the proprietor that he/she can sell your product easily and make money.

alot of these stores i think are franchised or private owned, i would go into one specific store and ask for the owners/managers contact information and set up an appointment with them. i don't think that going directly to corporate headquarters for a new product will be very effective.

Most soft drink vendors offer display units and coolers to the stores. If you are a small time place then you are stuck with independent stores to begin with that are privately owned. Some franchise stores let the owners use their own vendors and some don't. One thing that may slow you down is they may have coolers... More
