Analyst must be physically based in Manila.
A. Research (not a big long report as you just need to address the key points): We need the Analyst to research the markets, whether if product is popular in the country, key retail chains in each country, demographics. We need to understand if the designs of our products are culturally acceptable for the country.
B. Distributor Partner Search/Outreach: Once this is done, we need the Analyst to research potential distributors that have distribution across all key retails chains and experience with FMCG.
C. Arrange/Accompany Meetings (about N = 5 to 6): Once distributors are identified, we need the Analyst to make contact, share details of the brand and gauge interest. Once any ‘hot leads’ are identified, Analyst is to set up meetings and accompany the client visiting team over 3 days to meet distributors at their offices, facilitate and take notes. Some follow-up activities if necessary eg. clarify info, Q&A between Client and distributors, etc.
