Put it this way – if I were a gearhead and didn’t work at AMSOIL, I’d be an AMSOIL Dealer. Here’s why.
The AMSOIL Dealership opportunity has been around since 1973. Some Dealers have been able to grow their businesses into full-time jobs while others enjoy selling part-time as a way to fund their passion, like racing, restoring cars, riding motorcycles or traveling. If you’re wondering whether becoming an AMSOIL Dealer is worth it, you’ve come to the right place.
What to expect as an AMSOIL Dealer
Minimal startup cost
$50. That’s all it takes to register, get your Dealer Kit and get started. The Dealer Kit includes…
- Dealer Quick-Start Guide
- Wholesale Price List, Dealer Profit List and Literature & Sales Aids Price List
- One bottle of P.i.® Performance Improver Gasoline Additive
- One bottle of Quickshot®
- Two 1.5-oz. Pillow Packs of SABER® Professional 100:1 Synthetic 2-Stroke Oil
- One can of Metal Protector
Some businesses carry high start-up costs. Not the AMSOIL Dealer opportunity. It only costs $49.95 for a one-year Dealership ($64.95 in Canada).
No inventory requirements
My uncle is building a business selling auto parts online. It comes with a lot of hassle, including calls to the manufacturers overseas at odd hours of the day and night, keeping inventory, processing returns and making sure products get delivered to customers on time (a big challenge if it’s coming from overseas).
Personally, I think inventory is the biggest hurdle to growing a business.
The AMSOIL Dealer opportunity allows you to skip that (although some Dealers choose to inventory products to sell to people in their area). You can sell AMSOIL products and fulfill your orders from AMSOIL directly. We have 13 distribution centers in the U.S. and Canada to make sure orders ship quickly.
More than 99 percent of orders placed by 5 p.m. Central, Monday through Friday, are processed and shipped within 24 hours and arrive within three days via ground delivery.
We often hear from people who are surprised their order arrived so quickly.
Not only that, but Dealers get free shipping on orders of $350 or more ($450 in Canada).
Support when you need it
AMSOIL maintains a team of Regional Sales Managers that can help you with any questions you may have. We also provide access to several free training resources through AMSOIL University Online designed to help you learn more about lubrication fundamentals, AMSOIL products and the buy-sell process. We also host live training events around the country from time to time as well.
Sell to different customer types
Unlike other network marketing opportunities, as an AMSOIL Dealer, you are encouraged to grow your customer base by talking to individual people, retailers, commercial businesses and other potential AMSOIL Dealers. We promote AMSOIL products through events, sponsorships and national advertising so Dealers have a reputable brand to sell.
Tools to grow your business
The Product Guides at amsoil.com are my favorite AMSOIL tool. This snazzy tool helps you find everything you need for nearly anything with an engine. It works as a sales tool when you’re talking to customers who ask you what products to use in their vehicles.
MyAMSOILGarage is another great tool that, from a different company, would probably cost money. But it’s free for everyone.
This tool lets you store vehicle maintenance information and setup service reminders, like when to change oil or transmission fluid. Dealers use this tool to keep track of their customers’ vehicles so they can send friendly reminders when it’s time to change oil or other fluids. You can also use it as a tool when talking to commercial businesses, such as landscapers or cab companies, that may need a solution to all the paper receipts lying around.
AMSOIL Dealers can leverage the work of our marketing team by selling AMSOIL products at events we sponsor. Dealers can also apply for co-op assistance to help offset the costs of running a booth at an event. In fact, one of our AMSOIL Dealers, Kevin Arlotti, built his business this way. Hear what he has to say:
Signing up AMSOIL Preferred Customers (P.C.s) is a tried-and-true way to build a strong customer base. We help by providing P.C.s free shipping on orders of $100 or more ($130 in Canada). Alongside that, we send email promotions to P.C.s, incentivizing them to place orders, which builds your income.
If you’re a gearhead, you’ve probably come across our products. And, while I can go on and on about how we deliver the best products on the market, it’s more powerful to hear from AMSOIL users, such as the people who left these product reviews:
We rigorously test our products in our labs and via third-party independent facilities.
For example, AMSOIL Signature Series Synthetic Motor Oil provides 75% more engine protection against horsepower loss and wear than required by a leading industry standard*, extending the life of vital components like pistons and cams. Get the story here:
Our diesel oils are great, too. In fact, independent testing shows that AMSOIL Signature Series Max-Duty Synthetic Diesel Oil provides 6X more wear protection than required by the Detroit Diesel DD13 Scuffing Test for Specification DFS 93K222.
So, what else do I need to know?
To protect the opportunity for all Dealers, there are a few rules of the road you need to follow:
- No posting AMSOIL product pricing online (such as eBay, Amazon, craigslist, forums, etc.).
- “AMSOIL” may not be used in your business name, website URL, Facebook profile, etc.
- Always identify yourself as an independent AMSOIL Dealer to avoid confusing your business with AMSOIL INC.
- A Dealership provides an opportunity to build a business selling AMSOIL products to new customers. Respect the work of your fellow Dealers by not interfering with their active customers or accounts.
An AMSOIL Dealership is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It takes hard work and discipline to build an AMSOIL Dealership. But we provide all kinds of resources to help you get started. AMSOIL Dealer Lorraine Strenkowski, for example, harnessed the power of the Internet to build her business. Check out her story below.
If you are ready to grow your income by selling AMSOIL products, the rewards can be wonderful. In the words of our founder, Al Amatuzio…
“Dream about something! Go ahead! But do something about your dreams. Don’t just let them flit away.”
*As required by a leading industry standard. Based on independent testing of AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30, in ASTM D7320 as required by API SN specification.
