HOW IT WORKS

Your listing equals access to buyers. Each month we print and mail the market’s largest local resource to each state’s buying trade as well as enable their online access to our secure, trade-only shopping and ordering website. We set up each wholesaler based on its unique needs, listing size and order processing operations and preferences. Only retailers and on-premise licensees and their staff that have a password and login can search, view and shop market products and pricing as part of their current subscription.

The password-protected site (and in select markets,  iOS app) allows on- and off-premise customers easy access to research and shop your products, offering fast and dynamic search, current information on products and pricing, and order management tools. This enables sales teams to better market, manage and serve accounts in new and value-added ways.

Tools available for Distributor Sales Team online include:

  • Receive Order Notifications
  • Create Custom Lists and Sell Sheets
  • Do Competitive Pricing Analysis
  • Access Labels, Bottle Shots and Tasting Notes
  • Ratings & Reviews from Reputable Industry Sources

We also support sales teams via Pocket Advantage for iPad and more. Let’s get you started.
