Getting started tips
List all of the categories and vendors vertically and the retailers horizontally, use the status columns to identify the following status - Prospects - Currently selling - Currently Online (Ecom) - Researching and No (retailer does not sell that category). Once populated this is a very effective tool for developing sales strategy.
Without this template I would
Use multiple spreadsheets, hunt and peck through emails, use an old school whiteboard and endless meetings to manage our sales process. Managing sales leads and developing your sales strategy is a difficult process and complicated to manage, without a tool like this it is very easy to miss opportunities and lose sales.
