Retail MBA Is the most comprehensive training program available today on how to get your products on the shelves of chain store retailers.
Retail MBA was developed by Retail Sales Expert Karen Waksman. Karen sold millions of units to the world’s largest retailers. During this time she developed a time-tested proven sales formula that helped her get products into chain stores in various categories.
Since then, Karen has taught her sales formula to 1000’s of product companies across the country on the subject of selling to chain stores at places such as the US Patent Office, Stanford University, the Consumer Electronics Show and more!!
At this point you are probably asking yourself….“I’m not a sales person. Can I really get my own products on the shelves of the world’s largest retailers??”
Just check out Chuck’s story, he had questions about how to get his new product on the shelves of retailers…He was wondering…How do I get in contact with a buyer? What do I say when I get a meeting? What will they expect of me? I’m not a sales person at all, can I really get my products into retailers?
After investing in the Retail MBA program, Chuck followed the Step-by-Step process and got his product into a 1,000 store chain in less than 2 WEEKS!!!
