How to Become A Successful Diaper Distributor

Do you want to become a diaper distributor in your state or city where you live? There is huge potential in diaper business that is making distributors so much money selling diaper exclusively in a state or city.

Yes, I mean it, diaper distributorship is an exclusive franchise. If you are a diaper distributor you get to be the only one or just a few of you to share a more larger market.

Imagine if 100,000 diaper bags of a particular brand is sold in your city monthly and you happen to be the diaper distributor selling it? That statement may seem enticing but it’s the reality for most of the existing distributors, not just for diapers only. Have you wondered who’s the distributor for Indomie noodles in your state?

You don’t have to be the owner or manufacturer of any fast selling products to become a millionaire from the product. All you have to do is become a distributor.

And I can bet you, there are many people looking for such opportunities but haven’t even found it, or don’t have what it takes. I’m going to show you how you can become a diaper distributor if you want one, or any other product as well.

If are considering going into diaper business, I have just all the information on this blog to help you on this journey, like this one too. Here’s another one I recommend you read as well: How Diaper Business Works In Nigeria.This post is a must read if you want to venture into this business. And there are other articles as well.

Understanding Diaper Distribution

One thing about diaper distribution is that is follows a kind of franchise model that gives the distributors some kind of monopoly in the city they are licensed by the diaper brand to represent them.

This kind of diaper distribution model is like network marketing. The distributor gets to have some sub-distributors (up to 2 or 3 of them), where they are allowed, and as many as the number of retailers that are interested.

So, the diaper distributor buys directly from the diaper brand its representing, at a discounted price, and the sub-distributors and retailers buy either directly from the distributor or in the case of the sub-distributor, buying from the diaper brand owner directly.

Whatever form or shape yours might take, works pretty the same way. Although the idea is built on some form of exclusivity.

Who’s A Diaper Distributor

I’m not trying to define a distributor for you. You probably know that already, and no amount of English language can rephrase it better than how you already understand it in the Nigerian context. But what I want to explain to you is what you need to have if you want to become a diaper distributor.

A diaper distributor may not different from distributors of other products, excerpt for the diaper. Your an as well apply this information to becoming a distributor for any product in Nigeria. It works pretty much the same way. If you are ready then let’s get into the details. These are your starter plan to get you started.

The first thing you must consider important as a distributor is a store. I’m only simplifying it with a store, but it should be a big store, if you cannot afford a warehouse. The reason I’m considering a store as first thing instead of money, which in some case should be the primary requirement, is because there are some distributorship opportunities that might consider your location above capital injection. I will come to that later.diaper distributorThe next thing you need is money. The reason money is second is because you can get stock loan from your bank as an option, and your diaper company can also give you stock and you pay after sales. However, you will be needing money as well, whichever way you are going to get it.RELATED POST: How To Make Money Selling Baby Diaper In Nigeria

The Best Secret Of A Distributor

Now, let me explain the secret of a diaper distributor. I’m still explaining who is a diaper distributor. I’m only breaking it into modules so as to help you grasp the whole idea properly. You and I know that the title of a distributor is not a degree qualification but one you can achieve yourself.Hat I consider your three best secret is stock availability, your store location and the number of retailers buying products from you. Early I just gave you the starter plan. Here, I’m expanding on it based on the usage, and I have also included the third one, which is retailers. You cannot be a good distributor without retailers.I mentioned stock as one, then stock location as number two, while number is retailers. The availability and use of these three things is what makes you a distributor. So, if you want to be the best diaper distributor you must seek to have all the three basic things I have just described for you.I will explain further on the three and even show you how to get about them effectively:Diaper Stock AvailabilityThe most important secret about your diaper distribution business is stock availability. You can’t sell what you don’t have in stock. That’s why you need to ensure stock is always available to sell to your customers.Out of stock issues can harm your business more than you would know. The real experience of business is that everyone is trying to make money, and when you are constantly out of stock, your customers start thinking of other places they can get their stock from. Once that idea is instilled in them, you have a problem in keeping their loyalty to your business.One of the way to avoid out of stock is to ensure you have regular stock supply plan. It’s not only making sure your diaper company would keep having stock, but that you also have the money and the space to stock large quantity of diapers.Best Store LocationAlso, your location is important to the business. The best location is not just about using a prime business centre, it also has to do with accessibility and cost for your retailers. Your location should be such that is easier to access and cost retailers less to transport diapers to their various locations.You have to envisage cost for your retailers, unless you are paying for their transportation. Retailers make smaller profit because they sell in retail packs. So they not like a diaper distributor that sell in large stock quantity, and therefore makes profit in bulk sales. Your location should not only be important to you but also to your retailers.Active Number Of RetailersYou cannot even be successful as a diaper distributor if you don’t have good number of retailers buying from you. As a diaper distributor, you major customers are the retailers. The more of them loyal to you the more profitable your business would be. This loyal can cost you something. It’s either because your diaper brand is a fast selling brand or they are enjoying better discounts and incentives.The retailers are your sales point. The more active retailers you have the more sales points for your business. Your business is helped or destroyed by these retailers. While some brand owners allow this last line of the marketing run freely in the hands of retailers, some smart ones controls their products down to the retailers.Although, as a diaper distributor you can’t do much to control retailers under you but you can try to manage them by keeping close contact and communicating frequently with them about the business or products.Every new baby diapers undergone rigorous laboratory tests and analysis in Nigeria for quality and safety by the National Agency for Food & Drugs Administration & Control (NAFDAC), as well as the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON) and must be certified to be of good quality and safe before approved for sale in Nigeria. It has to be NAFDAC approved and SON certified.Types Of Diaper SizesThere are different types of baby diapers in the market. The range from 1 to 5 sizes of diapers. For the new born, there’s the Mini (1&2), but as the baby grows the diaper Sizes is adjusted accordingly from Midi (3), to Maxi (4), and to Junior (5).In the packaging, diaper manufacturers package them in different sizes, which we can name as follow: small pack, medium (Eco) pack and jumbo pack. See a little packing information below, but know that these may vary according to different diaper brands.Small Pack SizesMini. 15Midi. 12Maxi.10Eco Park SizesMini. 50Midi. 46Maxi. 42Jumbo Pack SizesMini. 111Midi. 102Maxi. 93As a diaper distributor or interested distributor, you should ask the different packing sizes to help you calculate the retail price and compare with competing brands to know how your diaper would be accepted in the market.

Types of Diaper Distributorships

This helps to give an idea the different part of the network of distribution. And each level enjoys different benefits and cost as well.We have a retail partnership that gives you products at wholesale price. That’s the best option to start with if you don’t have the required amount for the major distributorship or sub-distributorship. But distributors get special discount rates that are not available to our retail partners.Diaper DistributorMust have a verified shop in a major city. You will have an entire state market to yourself. An exclusive distributorship. But that depends on your success in the market. This opportunity is only available to serious minded entrepreneurs. You must be willing to invest more money. And promote the brand in your state.Diaper DistributorMonthly Target & Benefits:Here are the monthly target and benefit as a diaper distributor at this level. Understand that target is used to inspire sales and benefits are to reward the accomplishment of those targets and to keep distributors inspired monthly to achieve more sales.Below are some of the kind of targets and benefits:
  • Startup requirement would be determined by brand owners. For new diapers you should be looking at paying for 1,000 to 2,000 diaper bags for a start.
  • The monthly target of a particular quantity of diaper bags to be sold
  • This would entitled a distributor to a designated discount
  • The benefit also includes exclusive sole distributorship for a state or city as the case maybe,
  • You can also be allowed liberty to fix your own resell price and customer’s incentives, but this doesn’t apply to all brands.
  • Free delivery of products is also in offer but might be subject to quantity order or designated areas.
  • Priority for available marketing or promotional materials
  • You can also get opportunity for special privileges like – special rebates, credit facility, gifts packs or freebies, etc.
  • This right of first consideration for direct referrals from the company is another benefit but it has to be since you are the sole distributor in that state, other enquiries to sale the same brand is automatically redirected to you.
  • Diaper Sub-DistributorshipThis offer enjoys exclusivity as well. But it’s limited to the particular area in your state. A sub-distributor can only control the area assigned to it. This is usually assigned based on the number of major areas in the state.Some states may have only two sub-distributors or more depending on the number of identifiable areas within the state. The idea of sub-distributor is to bridge the gap between the distributor and retailers that are located far from the diaper distributor.That means the number of sub-distributors are also limited and enjoys some exclusivity as well. The sub-distributors gets their products from the main distributor, excerpt in state where a distributor is not available, then the sub-distributor gets products directly from the manufacturer or importer. And where there is no major distributor, the sub-distributors take absolute charge of the market and can upgrade to a full distributor.Monthly Targets and Benefits:A sub-distributor gets almost the same kind of treatment as main diaper distributors, excerpt that the targets and benefits are lesser than that of full distributors. So, the same benefits apply to sub-distributors but most times in as low as one-third of the benefits, as well as the targets.Starting quantity could be in as low as 250 to 500 diaper bags. See listed targets and benefits for diaper distributors above.RELATED POST: How To Become A Molfix Diapers Distributor Diaper Retail PartnerThe retail partners are the most important partnership in diaper distribution, even though they usually don’t invest more than distributors.

But if you buy up to N100,000 worth we don’t charge you for delivery. That’s if we don’t have sub-distributor yet in your location.

  • Opportunity for special privileges such as – gifts packs/freebies, etc.
  • Direct referrals from distributors
  • Help with sells through an attached sales representative
  • Opportunity to become a sub-distributor
  • How New Baby Diaper Market WorksOne thing you should know as an inspiring diaper distributor is that the products you are going to distribute are new diapers in the market. Stop deluding yourself about distributing brands like Molfix, Pampers, Dr. Brown and the likes.These existing brands already have distributors in most markets and therefore may not be available to accept new distributors. And where they can still accept one, the cost requirement may be in the tens of millions.
