How to Become an Advance Auto Parts Vendor.

Hey everyone! My name is Karen Waksman and I’m the founder of a company called Retail MBA. And today I want to talk about getting your products sold at in Advance Auto. Now the reason I decided to create this particular segment is because people always ask me, you know, who have auto products “How do I sell my products to advance auto?” I want to sell my products to these kind of auto chain stores what do I do? How do I get the products in there? And so I want to really address that audience and really kind of support you in any way that I can so then I give you some things to think about in getting your products into those stores so if you have a product that’s kind of a bit of automotive products and you’re trying to get into stores obviously advance auto is a great option for you that’s a massive retailer that have lots of stores you can make big money there but what are the things that you need to think about with advance auto is because it’s such a niche product you might want to consider getting endorsed with buyers by going to the aftermarket auto show there’s a trade show specifically for the aftermarket auto industry and a lot of the retail buyers for those industries go to that particular retail trade show and so you can do a google search typing an aftermarket auto trade show and you can actually see that there’s a major trade show that coming up that will a support you there so you know when it comes to niche retailers like auto and so forth you know they tend to am go to specific trade shows and so that’s one thing to think about you might not need to actually you know have a booth there maybe you could just go there but you know there they tend to hang out those kind of shows so that just one thing to think about ah the other thing about auto shows is that you know ah when you’re dealing with a niche products and I say this over again and some of my other segments but niches, every retailers are always the most complicated to sell to because everybody who has an auto product would want to try initially start selling to the auto retailers and so that just means it’s a very competitive space so what I always tell people to do is to try not to approach a retailer like advance auto for sure. See if they’re interested in your product but never get offended if they say no to your product because you could conceivably go after major retailers who have an auto division and so to them build up your business and then work with an advance auto again when it comes to niche retailers you tend to be highly competitive because your competitors are thinking like everybody else which means that they’ll always start with the auto store and that’s not always good for you when you’re starting out. it gets to be a little tricky. now one thing that you can do to make more money and I’m always thinking about ways for people you know to support people in my Retail MBA program I have also other weird ways of making money but you know if you have an auto product  one thing to think about is can you sell your product to say car washes or you know auto detailing store or you know the tire store so whatever they tend to sell auto products and to those other kind of avenues of making money not just necessarily retail so you can sell your product in an attempt to sell to, you know , advance auto for sure and sometimes they definitely take on your product you can sell to all sorts of other retailers and again you know I teach all that stuff but and then ultimately there’s other way to make money which is again like the car washes of the world or the auto detailing places of the world  the tire stores they have lots and lots of stores and you can sell to them as well and you know and so just food for thought there there’s so many ways to make money with the product don’t just get stuck in one way of making money anyways if you want to learn the exact steps from start to finish on how to approach pitch and sell to advance auto or other major retailers like advance auto my Retail MBA program actually explains all of that so if you’re interested in learning more please take a look below at the link that’ll send in your Retail MBA which is the most advanced training program available today on the subject of selling to stores either way I’m continuously adding new content for this kind of free training series on retails so also please be on the lookout for those training series ’cause I’m going to keep adding content for you ’cause I’m here to support.
