Wholesale Product Suppliers

Marketing your product successfully on a wholesale basis is comprised of using three main tactics.

1. Getting your product in front of buyers and merchandise directors on a pro-active basis. i.e. You are actively calling on buyers and merchandise directors pitching your product's and attending trade shows and buyers markets. This can be done in-house by someone working at your company or by an independent sales representative you pay a commission to.

2. Having your product featured in places where buyers and merchandise directors go looking for products to sell. This can be on web sites, in trade magazines, at trade shows and buyers markets.

3. Implementing web and publicity strategies that enable buyers and merchandise directors to find your company when they're searching for new products to sell using search engines like Google. This involves Search Engine Optimization (SEO) tactics for your company web site. This means getting inbound links to your web site from high-ranking web sites,  utilizing conversation media like blogs, social networks like Facebook, Linkedin, and

The NMOA has effective and low cost product promotion services to help you in these areas.

Our specialty is getting your product in front of buyers and merchandise directors at direct marketing companies and specialty retailers.
Direct Marketing Companies sell through mail order catalogs, web stores, direct mail, television home shopping and infomercials, and also through space ads in magazines and newspapers. Our international network of direct marketers are always on the lookout for new products to sell. We can put your product, or your entire line in front of them for an incredibly low price. Plus, we also attract a number of other specialty retailers like Kiosk vendors to our site looking for new products.

"The NMOA product promotion service is GREAT! As a manufacturer's representative, the first thing I do with every new product I take on is get a page for it in the NMOA product department! I get great results in finding new resellers, and meeting other product-marketing people from around the world to partner with. My main website also gets higher rankings in search engines thanks to having each of the products featured on the NMOA site. It's a true bargain for marketing (or testing the interest) of any product."

"Your e-newsletter featuring our TriEdge knife pulled some great responses this week...thanks for the spotlight and have a great weekend."
Jace Sargent

" As a manufacturer and as a sales rep, I never leave the NMOA out of my promotional efforts. Each product I'm involved with gets at least a year of promotion in the NMOA network; a full buying cycle. I get tons of exposure for my products for pennies, and more than my money's worth of solid leads. I can't recommend using the NMOA product promotion service enough."
Jeremiah James

"I've been promoting my product line on the NMOA site for almost three years and have had great results in getting new leads of retail merchants across the continent wanting to sell my products. The NMOA even helped me to expand my line into Canada".

Kidz Entertainment, Inc.

"I've been working with John Schulte and the NMOA for about 2 years now. I've received inquiries....and more importantly orders....from resellers all over the world. I can say with confidence I would NEVER have reached, let alone signed, some of my retailers without the help of John and the NMOA. I'd recommend them without hesitation..."

"NMOA has been a great help in connecting us with potential retail and distributor opportunities in the U.S. and abroad, many of which have become solid business relationships. It's a pleasure working with them."
Margie Williams

"I've been working with John Schulte and NMOA for only about 6 months now and have already seen a dramatic increase in the interest for my product line. Very pleased with the results and would recommend NMOA to anyone."
