Buying from a wholesaler

Savvy consumer always love to buy wholesale. Reasons: they get better deals. Let me hasten to add that you don’t have to be a retailer (who of course buy wholesale), it just takes a little futuristic thinking and some planning. Here is how?

We know normal consumers who always buy everything from household provisions and electronics to household appliance and cleaning products at wholesale prices.

Simply put, buying wholesale means buying in quantity. For example, you might find microfiber Damp Mop that you like it and also like its price. Buy your requirement for a whole year or buy some for your neighbor and acquaintances. The minimum required purchase from wholesalers is often very small, and you can even ‘resell’ the extras or give others as gifts.

Look online for wholesale prices. There are many online sources of wholesale merchandise. Ask them and you might even get a better deal. This is one way to save a lot of money and hassle. Have you ever tried buying from a wholesaler? It is easy. . . . . Read the rest of this article »

The cleaners

Recently Mintel’s research Household Cleaning Products: The Market—U.S. June 2010 and May 2008 crossed my desktop and the research report says “today more men do most of the household cleaning than ever before. Whereas 17% were masters of the mop in 2006 that figure now sits at 31%. While not as likely to clean as women over half (55%) of men who do feel a sense of accomplishment, almost the same as women (62%). The findings can be mirrored anywhere in cleaning industry.

Analyses of change in the behavior of consumers and their motivations give an edge to offer gender suitable cleaning products. Which is why Janito and its retailers reach out and communicate with men who like to clean as much as women do?

Right mop for the right surface

Will the auto scrubbers replace the mops and dusters? My answer to that is no. In cleaning business, cleaners will always need a broom and a mop. The auto scrubber is a great tool, especially when used efficiently, but nothing beats a broom and a mop. If it is a small area, cleaners are going to use a mop and broom. If it is a large area or if a toilet overflows in a bathroom, they might pull out their auto scrubber. There will always be a need for both.

In this age, users are looking for what they can do with less work force and still keep things clean. Auto scrubbers are helping them do that. What was done by a team of two or three workers can now be achieved by one person in the same time. But still, auto scrubbers will not ever eliminate the need for mops and brooms altogether.

Mops and brooms are some of the oldest cleaning tools we are so familiar with. Using the right broom and mop can help a lot. Depending on the type of surface being cleaned, expert professional will pick the right string mop or a microfiber mop for the right job. Microfiber, a dense material composed of minute synthetic threads, can get into small cracks and crevices to clean more thoroughly than a cotton mop. Microfiber is also lighter-weight than cotton, thus serving to reduce custodial fatigue when mopping. And while microfiber mop heads may cost more upfront than cotton ones, their cost per use may actually be less because they can be laundered many times — up to 600 times depending on the brand. . . . .

Private labels

The concept of private labels has come a long way in last ten years. Private labels mean products manufactured or provided by one company under a retailer’s own brand. In the beginning, private labels were used by retailers as differentiation element, but they have become a sine qua non factor in the portfolio of any player who wants to remain competitive.

The main products chosen for private labels are cleaning products followed by food and personal care products as well as soft drinks, spirits and stationery. Private label products are gaining strategic importance on the agenda of local retailers anywhere in the world. The market for own brand products is estimated to reach up to Euro1.2 billion this year after amounting to Euro 0.9 billion in 2010.

In the beginning, private labels were synonymous with very low prices, as the first such products were positioned on the low end segment. Lately retailers have developed their private label portfolio by targeting new segments. Private labels also mean business opportunities for local companies that go into partnerships with retailers to manufacture such products.

As for the long term strategy, Janito will continue production under private labels as long as there is demand and such partnerships are beneficial. . . . . Read the rest of this article »
