A New Definition
Specialty Electronics Nationwide is the specialty consumer electronics buying group under the Nationwide Marketing Group umbrella. A buying group uses the strength-in-numbers philosophy to band together dealer members to negotiate vendor programs as a group. The buying group represents itself as a single national account to the manufacturers so that each dealer member can reap the many financial benefits of purchasing at much higher volume levels.
It is Specialty Electronics Nationwide’s mandate to develop vendor programs that provide enhanced margin opportunities, and therefore ensure the increased profitability of our specialty CE dealer members. In addition, Specialty Electronics Nationwide supports members with inventory fulfillment solutions, extensive training programs, marketing initiatives, website solutions, customizable digital signage, consumer financing, inventory financing, competitive credit card processing rates, store design and merchandising, installation services, extended warranty programs designed to support your custom installation services and more. It is no mistake that this specialty electronics buying group evolved out of the Nationwide Marketing Group family. Nearly every dealer in the appliance business is a member of a buying group.
These dealers cannot compete against Lowes and Home Depot (essentially warehouse stores) without the significant roster of benefits the Nationwide Marketing Group provides.
Specialty Electronics Nationwide caters to custom installation dealers that sell specialty consumer electronics to end users/clients. All of our members have a commercially zoned presence in their marketplace; at this time we do not support dealers that work out of a residential location. Our dealers include the hybrid business model (dealers that offer both retail and custom installation services), appointment only showroom dealers, and the custom installation integrator in an office park. Since all of our dealers have overhead expenses, we have developed aggressive solutions that allow our dealers to buy specialty consumer electronics at discounted prices.
Joining Specialty Electronics Nationwide is not just about adding profit dollars to your bottom line. Membership gives you access to some of the top minds in the CE/CI industry. We offer business solutions, training, networking opportunities and a whole host of services that can help take your business to the next level.
