Education & Training
Training is essential. We have a company educator who has had over 11 years of experience in the health food industry. It is essential to educate on new products, specials, and in-store promotions. WestCoast Natural Sales meets regularly for product trainings and to develop strong sales strategies. Manufacturers are scheduled to present products, train, develop FAQ’s, sample product, discuss sales strategies, and the occasional ride-along to store buyers and key accounts. We also coordinate off-site dinner trainings where manufacturers are provided the luxury of an uninterrupted chance to directly train store staff members on their products.
WestCoast also have extensive experience with consumer seminars with various respected health professionals at many different venues such as Whole Foods Market, Lassen’s, Henry’s, Sprouts, Pharmaca and smaller independents. This allows the manufacturer to educate the public directly and generate long lasting brand loyalty in a given area.
WestCoast coordinates a comprehensive demonstration and promotional program. This is the best way to introduce your products to your store buyers and consumers, yielding an increase of sales per store of at least 10%. All of our demo reps have received extensive training and experience.
