Lesson 1: Stop Depending So Much on Your Wine and Spirits Distributors

We examine a significant change in the wine and spirits industry—the need to stop relying too heavily on distributors—in this lesson. The conventional approach of depending primarily on distributors to drive sales is no longer as effective as it once was due to the market being more and more crowded with brands competing for consumers' attention.

In this lesson, we'll introduce you to the 80/20 Rule, often known as the Pareto Principle, which has the power to completely alter your wine and spirit sales approach. According to this idea, about 80% of results result from 20% of efforts, emphasizing the importance of concentrating on what counts most.

The 80/20 Rule will be explained to you in the context of the wine and spirits sector.

You can streamline operations and increase success by focusing on the key elements of your sales process.
