5 Facilities you Need to Put in Place to Get Started as a Distributor for Dangote Cement

1. You Need to Write a Business Plan for your Cement Company

A business plans gives you direction and open your eyes to the wealth of resources you have at your disposal. Who are your target prospects? How much would it take you to start a cement business and haul products to your selling point? What things can you add to make your product more superior than your competitors? These are question you must answer in your business plan.

2. Study the Competition

Who’s your competition? What are they doing that you can do better? You need to study and understand their strengths and weaknesses. This is your advantage!

3. You Need a Warehouse

You will need a ware house to accommodate at least, a minimum of 500 – 1,000 cement bags. You can also talk to the town leaders in your vicinity, about allocating a space for you to store your cements. It is advisable to rent a ware-house to prevent unexpected occurrences

4. You Need to Arrange for a Vehicle

If you can afford to buy a supply vehicle (possibly a van or mini truck), then get one. It will help you sell faster, and make work more convenient for you. A haulage truck will also be needed to haul your cement products from the factory at Obajana, Kogi state or Benue state. However, you don’t need to own the truck, a pay per delivery contract will do.

5. Learn from the professionals

Do you know why there are so many struggling businesses in Africa today? It’s because they have been listening to the “GOOROS.” To succeed in this business, you need to speak with someone already in the GAME. Learn from someone with a cement business outside your community.

Many established business owners are happy to give advice to serious entrepreneurs. They love industrious young people, and are ready to go the extra-mile in helping them Don’t be scared. The worst answer you will ever get is a “NO.” Rejection is part of the game.

In conclusion, I want to restate that there is so much money to be made as a cement distributor. Even right here in NIGERIA, you can still function as a cement distributor while still working your day job. Isn’t this amazing? You can make a realistic profit of N300,000 monthly by distributing cement. All you need is ACTION, hard work, and determination!

However, you must bear in mind that no business is hassle-free, so expect some challenges while venturing into this business. It is your ability to deal with these challenges effectively that will make you a successful cement distributor.

Finally, I want you to also know that there are other great cement companies out there like LAFARGE WAPCO, IBETO, BUA, CCNN, etc.
