Distributors of Pepsi in Nigeria are required to distribute the product at least 6 times per week. This blog post will outline how you can become a distributor for Pepsi in Nigeria and what qualifications you need to meet before becoming one.

Qualifications: You must be 18 years old or older, have a good credit rating (800+), and be willing to travel at least 2-3 times per week. The application process requires that you submit your resume online with an introduction paragraph explaining why you want to become a distributor for Pepsi in Nigerian marketplaces. The selection process is rigorous but if chosen, it can turn into profitable business venture for anyone looking to invest their time and effort into this opportunity!

Introduction
Growing up in Nigeria, I’ve enjoyed Pepsi products and was a little shocked to learn that you can make great money selling the product. Even though Pepsi is not the most popular soda in Nigeria, it is a cash crop that can bring in a lot of revenue if you know how to sell it. If you are in Nigeria looking to grow your business and start making some money then you may be interested in becoming a distributor for Pepsi Nigeria.

You may be asking yourself: “How can I make money selling Pepsi in Nigeria?” To answer this question, you need to understand how Pepsi is a profit-based business and learn the steps you need to take to become one.

Pepsi Product Range and Profitability

The brand Pepsi in Nigeria comes in two main flavors, Sprite and Fanta, and a choice of six energy drinks.

How to Become a Distributor for Pepsi in Nigeria
Step 1: Create an Invitation Letter

You need a professional quality and well thought out letter to introduce yourself and explain why you want to become a distributor for Pepsi in Nigeria. In the letter, you can mention how much time and effort you’re going to be willing to invest in the project, what financial contributions you’ll be willing to make to the company, and how you can increase your chances of becoming a distributor for Pepsi.

Create the letter like a sales pitch and do your best to make the words in it sound inspiring and enthusiastic to prospective customers!

Step 2: Create a Personal Branding Design

In addition to a professional letter, it is also necessary to create an original branding design for your company.

Requirements to be a Pepsi Distributor
The role of a Pepsi distributor in Nigeria is one that is involved with sales of the Pepsi brand. The company requires that you distribute the Pepsi brand in various supermarkets and stores at least 6 times per week. You also must meet the minimum requirements for the job. As a Pepsi distributor, you will be expected to carry out basic office tasks such as customer service and admin.

Not All Pepsi Stores in Nigeria Are Created Equal

The majority of Pepsi retailers in Nigeria are licensed, meaning that you must be licensed as a retailer in order to be a distributor for Pepsi. To meet this requirement, you must have a reliable car with valid insurance to travel to various locations and a driving license to drive it.

The Application Process
The online process for Pepsi is designed to save time, not only for the applicant but also for Pepsi. Applicants should upload a portfolio of their previous work experience. It is important that applicants do not be afraid to send past work experience if they are unsure about any of their previous work experiences.

It is also advisable to send through at least 3-5 full body photos taken from various angles. The photos should be able to provide a reasonable idea of the applicant’s physique. If this sounds like a bit too much work, it is better to just get a photograph of a Pepsi bottle in front of the applicant and send that through.

I strongly advise that you get a better photo of yourself than that. This is not the time to be self conscious.

Tips on Success
This blog post is for distributors of Pepsi in Nigeria, but the points contained herein can be adapted for anyone in any country. The only thing that’s different is the prices for the products are more expensive, although the amount of sales are usually far higher.

Marketplace Distribution: If you want to market Pepsi products through the various online marketplaces, then you should have the following: a. internet connection b. online shop that sells products c. reliable partner that can sell the products through the online store d. reliable transport or car

Online Marketplaces

Bezos

bezos.com is a major online platform that allows anyone to list the products they want to sell online and people can buy them on an online marketplace.

Phone Interviews
After applying for the opportunity, you will be asked to take a short phone interview for screening purposes. This is to determine if you are physically fit and have good credit. No experience is necessary. Â

Training

You will then be invited to the Pepsi Company training center for a day-long training. Upon the training, you will be given another phone interview to evaluate your execution of the training.

Distribution Proposal

You will be given your actual distribution proposal to present to the Pepsi office, and, if you have satisfied all criteria, the Pepsi office will contact you about submitting additional details and resumes for the selection process.

Here are five steps to becoming a Pepsi Distributor in Nigeria.
