GrowHow - Incentives for Farmers


Blue bag sales go through the roof! 

When GrowHow, a Cottrills client since 1992, wanted to increase sales of blue bag fertiliser they turned to Cottrills. The only route to market is via independent distributors who sell a range of competitors products to the end user, the farmer. To maintain and increase market share we devised an incentive programme where distributors would earn points for each ton of blue bag sold which could then be redeemed online for an eclectic and aspirational range of gifts, wine and experiences.

According to David Raine, Operations Manager for GrowHow:

“We were already aware of Cottrills excellent service levels due to the fact we use them for the supply and management of our long service award scheme, so it only seemed natural to take advantage of Cottrills resources to help us motivate our distributors sales staff. We believe the scheme has encouraged the distributor sales force to push our blue bag brands as opposed to our competitors, and the assistance and administration by Cottrills has enabled us to achieve this without a lot of additional work”.
