Distributors and resellers

In B2B small and large companies sell through partners. Some are very successful using this indirect sales model others have poor sales results.
Some claim the poor sales on the big ego of the distributors, but the solution lies elsewhere as many threat all partners uniformly.
In order to sell successfully through distributors and resellers it is important:
- selecting the right partners
- offering the suited products or services fitting into their offering
- matching their sales and business model

Hence you need to understand what:
- drives your potential partner
