Search industry websites and publications to find distributors that provide the type of distribution you need for your business. List the distributors that interest you.
Pick the distributors from your list that fits your business the best and contact them.
Schedule a appointment for someone from those companies to come out and present their services to you. This can help you in making your final decision.
Choose the company from the presentations you saw that best fits your company and select that company to be your distributor.
Determine the terms of the agreement and sign all paperwork as well as pay all applicable fees and charges for the distributor to begin rendering their services to you.
