Like our participating practices, so too, The Growth Cooperative seeks vendors that will enhance the sale and usage of their products by participating in our entire training, education and account management process as well as providing unique and aggressive pricing programs. But from here there is a severe point of departure compared with all other buying group models
- Partner Vendor Status – The Growth Cooperative seeks a primary vendor (Partner Level) in each product category.
- Guaranteed sales – Vendors pay buying groups significant fees without any guarantee of sales results. In fact, the resulting sales are often what a vendor could expect if the buying group was not involved. The Growth Cooperative, on most products and for our Partners Vendors only with negotiate a sales target with penalties for lack of target success.
- Inclusion in Membership – For certain products, it is all or partially included in the membership fees at no additional cost to the member. All members receive the product.
- Advanced eCommerce Features – The Growth Cooperative is using all the latest ecommerce techniques and software to assist practices in ease of purchasing. Look for incentives and purchase behavior-shaping procedures and a direct interface with a practice level marketing engine to ensure the products purchased by the practice can be quickly sold by the same practice.
- Larger, Consolidated Practices – means larger, coordinated purchases.
- Training and Account Management – Our sponsorship and group fees are used to provide the industry’s strongest behavior-change and compliance results. Robust, incentivized training and a 12-week account management program ensures success. Online Consumer Marketing (where applicable) – The world has moved online. Our practices have not. The Growth Cooperative is providing consumer-oriented marketing programs to help create sales for your products.
- Consolidating Billing and Guaranteed Vendor Payment – All purchasing is conducted through The Growth Cooperative and therefore The Growth Cooperative will pay all bills in full and will take responsibility for any late or missed payments.
