You have to believe in your product.

The online submission form doesn’t ask for your sales success but if you keep your brochure down in size you can include a jpeg of a page with your current sales success. Once you do this you need to wait for the buyer to contact you to request a sample or hopefully an appointment., Local Program, If you want to sell your product only in a limited market, Wal-Mart requires you to use their local buying program, where you need to convince one Wal-Mart manager to like your product, then you need to complete a local supplier questionnaire and have the District Manager approve the questionnaire.

After you identify the actual e-mails, numbers and places you need to set it, start with the highest first because that may take the longest, and trickle down the line, make a list of 100 companies that would take your product and start at #1 in the priority and work your way down the list, making at least 20 calls a day and sending them all the information using more skills and asking for feedback each time.
