How to Get Your Product Out of Walmart & Target by Mind Map: How to Get Your Product Out of Walmart & Target

1. Target

1.1. Target wants new vendors to call their Sourcing Information Center at 612-696-7500. When you call they will direct people who want to sell a product to Target to send an email to [email protected] . You will only get a response if the Target people like your product. So you need to be sure that you include all the information you can about your product, your sales success and also your ability to fund production. The email itself should show a picture of the product, in its package if you can. You only have a brief opportunity to make your point so you have to be direct. You can send in your item multiple times, but space the submittals at least six weeks apart.

1.1.1. Start with the category, for instance: New Electronic Product. Mention one or two items currently carried by Target that your product should be next to. For example: place next to digital cameras and camcorders. State where it has been sold. Just on one line, list only the biggest retailers, catalogs or Home Shopping Network. List the suggested retail price. Your contact information. A picture of the product in its package. Don’t make the picture too big, 2 x 2.5 inches is fine. They can enlarge the picture if needed.

2. Success Journal

2.1. I created the step plan and did it myself, I know how to do this, and it's been inside me the whole time. I can go do be have see know and experience whatever the heck I want because I have the time, energy, capacity and invention. God gave it to me, I can hear from Him, and building the prophet line is a good thing because there will be complete clarity in what and where to go getting actual direction and inquiring of the LORD.

3. Success Stories

3.1. The husband and wife combination Vanessa Troyer and Chris Farentinos came up with a simple idea, a lockable mailbox. The mailman could put the mail in, but you could only get the mail out with a key. Their two products’, the Oasis and the Oasis Jr., sales have Troyer and Farentinos’ company Architectural Mailboxes off and running in the marketplace and right into Target’s catalog and website. To date they have sold more than 150,000 of their locked letter drops, which retail for $97 to $258. Troyer and Farentinos developed their credentials by selling successfully through Amazon. Through a persistent effort she located the home address of Jeff Bezos, president of Amazon and sent him a presentation on how much money Amazon was losing because their packages were lost. The day after the presentation arrived Amazon called and today they carry over 50 of Architectural Mailboxes products. The Oasis locking mailbox is not just sold by Target, it is also sold by Home Depot, Costco and Lowes.
