The leadership principles of Uwe Eckert

Personal commitment of Uwe Eckert

Jesus for you

Uwe Eckert and his wife Gudrun actively demonstrate their belief in JESUS CHRIST through the project “JESUS food and clothes for You” (“JFC”). They want to open up a modern store that exemplifies the love of JESUS. It will offer free food, clothing, and opportunity for prayer. It is directed towards people who are marginalised in society, but is also designed for Christians, encouraging them to get involved in the stores and live out the principle of loving their neighbour by giving a helping hand. The goal is to reach people with GOD'S love, so that they are reborn in the spirit of GOD and grow into Christians themselves.

The first “JFC Store” in the city centre of his home town of Kulmbach will act as a pilot project. But Uwe Eckert is a visionary – he’s thinking big: He is offering the stores as a professional franchise system, to offer people access to practical and spiritual support across Germany. The stores are not financed by church or social agencies, but instead allow business owners and private investors to actively live out their belief in JESUS CHRIST and help improve the well-being of others.

How can selling in brick-and-mortar stores in the German-speaking market pay off for you?

The German-speaking market includes Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, making it Europe’s largest market. Food and non-food (DIY, textile, furnishings, etc.) retail chains in the German-speaking market generate hundreds of billions of euros in revenue each year, making them some of Europe’s largest retail chains – with enormous potential!

Why shouldn’t I approach retailers and big players on my own?

One ‘big player ‘actually represents a huge number of individual customers.

At first glance, the structure of the German-speaking market is relatively simple. There are some “big players” like Edeka, with over 6,000 supermarkets, Rewe, with over 3,200 supermarkets, and Aldi, with approx. 4,100 discount markets. In reality, however, Edeka is not a monolith. Edeka is an umbrella brand encompassing 7 regional companies. And these 7 regions, in turn, unite between 500 and 800 independent merchants in each region, all of whom have the freedom to make their own purchasing decisions. First, these merchants and regional companies need to be convinced to buy a product. It is almost impossible to access national listings without first “conquering” the regions.

Almost all retail groups in the German-speaking market are structured this way, from the areas of DIY to textile, pharmacy or furnishings. The market is highly complex, but BestSell understands the fundamental requirements successful products need to meet, and has functional procedures and a functional network of contacts. We get your products on the shelf!

Why is BestSell not a distributor?

BestSell is not a distributor.
BestSell cannot be compared to a common distributor. We take a totally different, modern, and efficient approach. We don’t simply sell your products; instead, we enter into a business partnership with you, focused on successful sales.

Who benefits from outsourcing sales?

Increased competition and cost pressures are forcing businesses to concentrate more and more on their core business. Often, sales and marketing may not be among those core areas of expertise; outsourcing allows companies to target their available capacity on those areas where they can generate a competitive advantage.

7 good reasons to choose sales outsourcing

1. Creating jobs
Our goal is to ensure and develop the success of the companies that we support continuously, in the long-term. Our objective is to create more attractive and secure jobs within our own company, as well as in the companies we support. We focus on possibilities, not challenges.

2. Cost savings
Temporary or permanent “leasing” of measurable sales services requires companies to deal with wage costs, benefit costs, vacation time, sick leave, overhead costs, material costs, office rent, personnel recruiting, vehicle leasing, and sales meetings. You can expect to see more flexible costs and savings of up to 30 – 40%, depending on your industry and sales structure, based on a total cost calculation.

3. More corporate flexibility
Sales requires both personnel resources and management capacity. In addition, organisations are often expected to handle issues that are far removed from their core area of expertise. We reduce your workload, so you can concentrate on your core business.

4. Faster access to new markets
Every company needs to tap into new markets or market niches, and get new products or services to retail shelves. Innovation management is the magic word. However, this can be difficult to achieve in many cases - primarily due to a lack of resources. Listing procedures and required sales tests can make market launches much more difficult. We have the contacts and the experience, and we can help ensure your products reach consumers.

5. Improved liquidity
Can be used to invest in the market, for product development, or simply to reduce your current account liabilities.

6. Access to external specialised expertise
More difficult economic conditions, stronger competition, increased purchasing power among customers, and the huge diversity of services available are posing complex challenges for sales today. That makes sales one of the most important drivers of value within a company.

7. Additional benefits
BestSell offers not only expected advantages like sales expertise, added sales capacity, cost savings, etc., but also usually gives companies a new way to look at their existing processes and procedures. Often, this learning effect can be a key, unexpected, and major benefit for your company.
