Multibrands – International company within FMCG

If you are considering using commission only sales agents to sell your products and services to the UK markets read this example of how an international company attracts sales agents to their business.

For over two decades Multibrands has been researching and developing to create its own range of Fast Moving Consumer Goods that provide a value price for the consumer, and excellent margins for the B2B wholesaler.

Multibrands have a well-established distribution network with the centre of their operations located in the heart of the UK, which means they can guarantee a fast and efficient distribution service worldwide. With so many potential customers, Multibrands run an ongoing campaign with Salesagents.uk to find suitable commission only agents to meet the growing demands of their business. Vineet Porwal, Recruitment Executive for Multibrands, explains how the successful relationship works.

We received a good response to our advert for agents, with a high proportion of good quality applicants. We consider the service to be value for money and the quality of their service, to both advertising businesses and sales agents, reflects our own focus on high standards when dealing with both our customers and our agents.

We became aware of Salesagents.uk through their website, and because of the straightforward cost-effective services it was easy to try out their service and test the results.

The Energy Buyers Network

Here at the Energy Buyers Network we assist our commercial clients in reducing their annual utility costs and utilise a mixture of employed account managers and self-employed “Energy Partners”.

As it had been some time since we ran a recruitment campaign for additional “Energy Partners” we were unsure which way to go this time around, we eventually decided to advertise with 2 agent job boards for an initial 3 month period with a view to evaluating the results.

The process is very slick and seamless with Sales Agents UK, from the info I gave them they produced an excellent advert and it was up and visible within 48 hours.
The Results – Hands down Sales Agents UK have introduced the highest number and calibre of “Partners” who fit well with what we do and want to do going forward at the Energy Buyers Network.

I can only speak from our own experience but I would have no issue with recommending Sales Agents UK as a way of introducing your business and products to the right audience.
