So can this help for the aggregation? So, can we say maximum weighted distribution for the market in above case will be 99 max. Count of stores and number of stores do not help in this case — you need something about ACV all commodity volume. No, you cannot say that the maximum weighted distribution for the market is 99!
In fact we know that maximum distribution for the market must be somethig less than 99 since it will be a weighted average of the distribution in the 3 channels plus the 0 in the 4th channel. What is the fact of scanning product in store? Visual control on the shelf or sell out from store 1 item? For scan data, distribution is based on whether the item sold.
Whether it is physically on the shelf does not factor into the scan metrics. ACV Reach — what is this and how is it measured. You may have noticed the following 2 things about the Reach facts: They are always bigger than the corresponding fact without Reach in the name except for a single week, when they are the same and 2.
The facts will also be more different when the purchase cycle for the product is longer people do not buy the product as often. Hi, I use a different database, from Retail solution, and I can see the stock in every store and if the store scanned the product or not. I usually do the distribution checking if the store has stock or not, and then see how many stores have.
That is fine to do!
RSi has relationships with specific retailers to be able to provide store-level POS and inventory data. I have no idea what the costs are for RSi but that would give very accurate information on out-of-stocks. Thanks for the article Robin. I am also using Nielsen data and have a question about 4 Weekly weighted distribution —. So I understand that 4 Weekly Wtd Dist means that if a product was scanned in the last 4 weeks, it counts as ranged in the store.
Then the sum of sales value ACV of the stores ranging the product is divided by the total sales value of the specific market to get the distribution figure. What I want to know is how do they calculate the ACV store or market level? In your article it says annual figure, then does it get updated in the beginning of every new year or is it moving annual total? If there are new stores opening, how would they calculate the ACV? If any other readers can add anything to this, please do!
If you take the average of the items it will understate the brand ACV since the brand distribution is always at least as high as the best item, and usually higher. Of course if that results in a number over , then the brand distribution is See point 5 in this post. Being VERY new to the industry, all I basically have at this point is a business card and need help figuring out how to get my foot in the door… Any recommendations?
They were very professional and have a number of success stories, some are recent. You might want to check them out.
They decided not to go with my products but welcomed me to submit in the future. Also, if you go with anyone else please let me know your experience with dealing with them. I still have the paper work from Excel Dev. Another option is to represent yourself no agent needed at the Toy and Game Inventor Conference in November in Chicago. It is the only time all year companies like Hasbro, Disney, Spin Master and others there were 49 speakers last year will look at your products without an agent if you are not on their professional inventors list.
Hasbro has had at least 2 people there since , including their Head of Global Product Acquisition and Inventor Relations. In addition, there is a full conference agenda taking you from the beginning of your product to global distribution. The networking is unmatched as you have breakfast, lunch and dinner with these people for 2 full days and includes a ticket to the Toy and Game Inventors of they Year Awards Dinner, www. While you are there, you can also attend the Chicago Toy and Game Fair at no charge. Richard Levy and Ron Weingartener are updating their book.
Watch for it in electronic version. There is also a lot of free information at www. Since the thread started with Hasbro, there are 2 Hasbro representatives on the Advisory Board for these three events and the new Hasbro Broker letter includes this Conference and DiscoverGames.

A food broker is an independent sales agent that works in negotiating sales for food producers and manufacturers. Food brokers work for both producers and buyers of food as they help sell food products to chain wholesalers, retail stores, independent wholesalers and more. In most cases food brokers only sell their clients products within a local geographic area.
However in many cases the products that they are selling have been produced or manufactured overseas or outside of their geographic region. Food brokers have additional responsibilities stemming from negotiating sales. In many cases they will also help keep producers and manufacturers up-to-date on the local market situation.
