PACKAGING & ARTWORK
Don’t underestimate the value of great artwork and the right packaging. Take a walk down any Costco aisle and notice how many get it right and how many get it wrong. There are few things worse than winning the business only to have it fail on the shelf over something within your control to prevent. We are going to challenge you on your artwork and your packaging because we don’t just want to sell your item - we want it to succeed once it’s on the shelf!
PRICING & PROGRAM
Pack size. Freight. Margins. Marketing. Order size. Supply chain. Numerous factors impact your pricing, and it’s important you cover all the bases while still being competitive. Want an easier way? We have this down pat - let’s review your pricing model in detail and build a program together that secures the results you deserve.
Many items need marketing support at Costco. Demos, end caps, temporary price reductions, and other promotional activities will have a significant impact on the long term success of your item. We will discuss these options with you, help you build your pricing accordingly, and even accurately manage your spending for you.
Effectively covering Costco’s USA and International regions requires a team with robust experience, extensive Costco relationships, and a well-developed process to ensure you're well positioned to win the business. Let’s talk about your specific Costco goals, and together we’ll map out a unique plan that enables you to capitalize on all available opportunities.
