Learn everything you need to know to become a Guitar Center vendor

With that said, let’s talk about the Guitar Center. If you have a musical instrument, if you have a product for the music industry, they’re one of the few left standing that are consistently out there that you can sell your products to.

Guitar Center Has Over 250 Stores

And so they’re an important retailer for you. As of now, they have around 250 or so stores that they’re responsible for that does vary, but ultimately they are there selling products and it makes a lot of sense for you to go after them if you have a musical instrument. Here’s the tricky part and the part that I want to explain to you about the retail industry. So every person who has created some sort of musical instrument is thinking about becoming a Guitar Center vendor.

It can be a little tricky to become a Guitar Center vendor

You think that that’s the perfect first place to start, because it makes sense. Best Buy, you have a consumer electronics product, you’re going to go to Best Buy. Everyone does this. It’s really, really common. And the problem with that thinking is that all of your competitors are reaching out to Guitar Center if they have a similar product to yours and so forth. And what that does is really limits your ability to actually generate revenue with your product.

Guitar Center is going to scrutinize your product because everyone is contacting them in your category.

They’re a little bit more tough to reach out to initially. 

So really what that means is if I were you, and I’ve done this for close to 20 years, selling for the biggest retailers in the world, some version of that teaching, educating and so forth through our time tested systems. What I would do is I would of course, reach out to guitar center but if they say no to me, I don’t take that personal at all, because it means that all my competitors are already on them and maybe there’s a town with a budget.

What If Guitar Center Says No To Your Product?

There’s something going on. Whereas most people who reach out to them feel really horrible about themselves. They think that the product’s not good. If guitar center says no, they can’t go anywhere. And this is a silly thing. It’s just really that all your competition is going after them. 

How to get your products into Guitar Center and other local retail stores

What we do, what I would do is I would reach out to all the other retailers that sell musical instruments and try and get them to purchase your product. Target, Walmart, anyone else who actually sells similar products and I’m going to try them first cause a lot of my competitors are not necessarily thinking about reaching out to them and maybe they don’t even know how

Go back to Guitar Center, showing proof of sales


And so my assumption is always going to be to go to the masses anywhere else. They all have websites and locations and so forth that you can dig around and find the people that are selling this product. That’s not the most well known in that space, if that makes sense. So I hope that provides value for you. Don’t take it personal. Don’t feel bad. Try going after guitar center but really what I would do is I would go after all the other retailers that could conceivably buy that your competitors are not thinking about. And then I would go back to guitar center, showing proof of sales, they’ll love you a lot more.
