Profit point two: the area promotion
With some well-known brand guide, dealers began in some of the new open market and the area promotion. Distributors usually practice is to recruit one or two clerk to run inside the cell, so the promotion, the cost is very high, the clerk salary plus commission accounted for about 15% of the gross profit. Remove some of the sales cost and the cost of advertising, basically is greater than the risk of earnings. Even if the hiring of one or two business ability of the salesman, how to retain talent, are small and medium-sized dealers headache.
