Educational Natural-Specialty Trade Spending Webinar

NSWebinar

We Invite You to Join us for a Natural-Specialty Trade Spending Webinar

Trade spending in the Natural-Specialty segment is highly complex. Most emerging manufacturers lack the time to both manage this expense, and then leverage the opportunity to grow their businesses through a sound trade spending strategy – based on achieving your KPIs. Today, most manufacturers are using Excel, however, there is a simpler, more effective and cost-efficient approach. It not only manages this significant expense, but enables strategic growth, consistent with your overall company objectives, to drive the rapid and profitable growth you need to scale.

Would You Like to Learn to Leverage Trade for Strategic Growth?

During this Natural-Specialty Trade Spending webinar, we will share some of the successful practices and approaches our clients have used to grow their business, reduce trade spending on a ‘rate per case’ basis, and achieve repayment for unauthorized deductions/chargebacks. We will also share information we have gathered on trade spending in the Natural-Specialty segment in general and some categorization of trade that clients leverage to manage their business.

Webinar Overview

  • Review the current situation around trade spending today.
  • You’re spending more than you think – understand it, and learn what you’re getting for the investment.
  • Compare ‘working’ vs. ‘non-working’ trade.
  • Discuss how to improve your trade effectiveness in a progressive, structured fashion.
  • Provide real examples of companies addressing trade effectiveness and growing their business.

Cost: Complimentary!

We hope you can make it, and look forward to the opportunity to speak with you soon!
