One of the best parts of being an AMSOIL Independent Dealer is that AMSOIL provides you with the freedom to build your business in a way that suites you best. You can build your business though any of the following methods (or a combination):
- Retail Sales (buy at wholesale and sell at retail to the end user)
- Online Sales (take telephone orders, earn affiliate commissions)
- Catalogue Sales (customers place orders through you or directly through AMSOIL)
- Commercial Account Sales (set up commercial businesses as wholesale accounts. They use AMSOIL in their equipment)
- Retail Account Sales (establish re-seller accounts such as hardware stores, auto parts stores, installers etc)
- Preferred Customer Sales (register individuals as Preferred Customers and earn a commission on their purchases)
- Build a Sales Team (introduce the AMSOIL business to other people, earn commissions on their sales)
This is where almost all AMSOIL Independent Dealers start. It's the easiest way to get started and also provides the fastest track to earning immediate profits and commissions.
When you sell AMSOIL products directly to the end user, this is a Retail Sale. You will buy the products from AMSOIL at wholesale and sell them at retail. An example of a retail sale would be, your customer wants to do an oil change in his 2009 Dodge Ram 3500 with a 6.7L Diesel. You sell him a case of oil and an oil filter. Your wholesale cost on this product is approximately $143.00 and you sell it to your customer for $192.55. Your profit on this sale is $49.55.
You will also earn approximately 73 Commission Credits on this order that will pay you an additional 2% to 25% ($1.46 - $18.25) depending upon your level of qualification
So, on this one retail sale, you could earn as much as $67.80
This is where most Independent Dealers start their AMSOIL business but to earn much more income, it's best not to stop here.
If you have just a little bit of experience with building websites (or the willingness to learn) online sales can help you build all categories of you AMSOIL business. Let's start with what you can NOT do to promote your AMSOIL business online:
- You may not list AMSOIL products for sale on sites such as eBay and Amazon
- You may not create an online store with prices and shopping cart
- You can blog about AMSOIL products and suggest people contact you to order
- You can promote your business locally and generate local sales
- You can generate sales leads anywhere in North America and drop ship the products directly to your customers
- You can generate affiliate commissions by sending traffic to AMSOIL.com
- You can earn Retail/Catalogue profits by promoting AMSOIL products and asking people to contact AMSOIL directly to place their order. You will instruct your customers to give your dealer/referral number when they order
- You can promote the business opportunity and build a sales team
- Much more...
Catalogue sales are very similar to Retail Sales. You can generate catalogue sales by physically handing out your catalogue to potential customers or showing them how to request a free catalogue online. That customer can then place a product order by contacting you directly or by contacting AMSOIL and giving your dealer/referral number. Just like a Retail Sale, you will earn the different between wholesale cost and the retail selling price + the commission credits.
Another way to generate Catalogue Sales is through your online marketing efforts. If your website, blog, social media efforts help somebody to phone AMSOIL to place an order and that person give your referral number, you will earn the profit and commission credits.
A third way to earn Catalogue Sales is as an affiliate commission (Google "what is affiliate marketing" to learn more about this). If your online marketing efforts lead somebody to make a purchase at www.amsoil.com, you will earn the same profit and commission credits as you would if that person contact you directly to place the order. As an AMSOIL Dealer, you will be provided with affiliate links that you can use to help ensure you are credited with the sale.
One of the most profitable avenues for earning large commissions with AMSOIL is through Commercial Account Sales. By introducing commercial businesses such as small trucking companies, landscapers, equipment operators etc. to AMSOIL products and helping them to save money by using our products in their business, you will earn profits and commission credits on their purchases.
Commercial Accounts tend to be very loyal and place large recurring orders. Some of the top earners in AMSOIL focus on Commercial Account Sales.
AMSOIL refers to Retail Accounts as ROTS or Retail on the Shelf accounts. By helping retails stores and shops such as hardware stores, auto parts stores, powersports equipment dealers etc. purchase AMSOIL products for resale from their store, you will earn profits and commission credits on everything they buy. Like Commercial Accounts, by establishing Retail Accounts, you can earn a substantial, long-term, recurring stream of income.
A Preferred Customer is an end user that buys AMSOIL products at Dealer Cost for their own use - not for resale. You, as a dealer, do not earn the retail profit (different between wholesale and retail) but you do earn the commission credits. At first glance, this may appear to be a negative situation but it is not. By helping your Retail Sales customers become Preferred Customers, they will save money on their purchases and you will be guaranteed commissions for as long as they remain Preferred Customers and continue to purchase our products. This is a true win-win situation for you as an Independent AMSOIL Dealer and for your customer that likes to use AMSOIL products in his or her own vehicles and equipment.
By introducing the AMSOIL business to other people and helping them to find success, you will earn commission credits on their sales. If you enjoy helping others and would like to build long-term, residual income building a sales team may be an area of your business to develop.
In the Retail Sales section, I mentioned that you do not want to stop with Retail Sales. In addition to the substantial commission you can earn by establishing Preferred Customers, Commercial Accounts, Retail on the Shelf Accounts and Building a Sales Team, you will also qualify for the following bonuses that could earn you $100's of dollars in additional income each month.
Qualification Bonus - Earn $10 for every qualified Dealer, Preferred Customer or Account you register. One qualified Customer = $10 Five qualified customers = $50, Ten qualified customers = $100 etc.
A qualified customer is a new Independent Dealer, Preferred Customer, Commercial Account or Retail on the Shelf Account that places a minimum order.
Duplication Bonus - Earn $5 for every qualified Dealer, Preferred Customer or account the Dealers in your sales group sponsor. When you build a sales team and help them register new accounts, your team member will earn the qualification bonus and you will earn the duplication bonus. Remember, this bonus is above and beyond the commissions you will earn on your team's sales.
Retention Bonus - Earn $5 when the Dealers or Preferred Customers in your group renew the first time and re-qualify. If you register a new Dealer or Preferred Customer and they make a qualifying purchase (50 commission credits), you will have earned a $10 Qualification Bonus. If that Dealer or Preferred Customer renews their account when it expires and they make another qualifying purchase, you will earn an additional $5 Retention Bonus.
If you need help in any of these areas, you can always contact your sponsor, direct jobber or regional manager.
