There are hundreds of dealer websites and AMSOIL’s HQ page which you can learn all about the inner workings of being an AMSOIL dealer. My old site (synthetic warehouse) covers all the great opportunities in the dealer section and some of the ways I help the new dealer get started. But here I will start by going over some of the new directions AMSOIL is taking and updating as needed . (See Video below)
I guess I should answer the most common question which is regarding support. Most dealers just signup online not realizing that they will be assigned to a random dealer somewhere then when it comes time to get serious, they will be shocked to learn the only person who is there to assist them is no where to be found. Dealers outside that group have no incentive. Thankfully as of March 2016 a new mentoring program has been initiated so you will receive help even if the upline dealer is unable.
I am among the most active dealers who specialize in working with dealers. One reason to join my group is that I never miss an update from corporate and I forward out to the dealers anything I learn which will improve your business. I use mail, Facebook, newsletters, You Tube, video screenshots, blogging and am available for phone calls during normal business hours.
Well for years I have had my own dealer newsletter but now I have started doing Video Blogs and also this new Dealer Training Blog Series for our website. Once you join I will send you the link to my group’s archive’s. But check this link for some of the topics relevant to this subject and new prospective dealers. From inventory suggestions, videos, rules and important product sales points. This should be quite the resource!!
In the past AMSOIL held yearly training at the HQ in the Superior, WI – Duluth, MN area. Dealers as far as Florida didn’t have a local rep to assist so they relied on their upline to be one of the 300 who could attend and pass along the information. Meanwhile thousands of other dealers didn’t know there was any information to pass along. Now for 2017 AMSOIL U is FREE Online for everyone! As soon as you join.
Basically you have a business you can work at your own pace. AMSOIL has great rewards and incentives to those who put in the effort or just stick around long enough to try their hand at a few things and let it all absorb.
Although we are in the modern age of everything being available on the internet, I have proven that the majority of ones success can be local. At least the most efficient way to maximize earnings is via local inventory and very low cost marketing strategies. Understand that there could be 1 or 100 existing dealers in your area which doesn’t necessarily mean you are treading on someone else’s turf or have no chance at success. Most dealers work their businesses in totally different ways from one another. Some specialize in over the road trucking, some deal in internet sales only, many only stock when there’s a call and chances are you will be the only one with a reasonable inventory and available for local AMSOIL demand.
Older archive – I use a different platform but enjoy.
AMSOIL created the “Certified Dealer” class as a way for local customers to find the dealers who are more active in their businesses. Any dealer can achieve this at any stage by showing their proficiency of AMSOIL policy and meeting a very minimum set of “reasonable” activity. As long as the dealer keeps this minimal order frequency and an occasional gain of a new account, they will receive local leads and remain listed in the corporate locator.
Bottom line there are some great incentives. Retail profits, growing commissions on product, growth bonuses, vehicle allowance, Retail and Commercial Account cash bonuses and of course the ever paying commissions from a growing downline as you advance beyond Direct Jobber. Just by joining the monthly publication which hits your mail, the hotline news which makes your email and all the available blogs and technical papers in the “Dealer Zone”, not t mention my own newsletter archives will help you complete the tasks needed for advanced success. There are thousands of AMSOIL dealers achieving success thanks to the growing number of fast action publications which you can access any time.

I started this in 1997 after using AMSOIL for a couple years. I was amazed by the results and instant performance in my cars which I had to depend on to get to work and school. With some hobby racing I was able to gauge more added performance and the maintenance products were proven to be quite significant. So sold on the products in a large city (Dallas, TX) I started a small inventory of $600 and started handing out cards and area trade shows. This solidified my local business via word of mouth then I started one of the first dealer websites which within one year I had 80 new dealers! I was able to leave a $60,000/year job and Southwestern Bell/ATT so I no longer had to answer to someone.
Today I have over 500 downline dealers and hundreds of repeat online customers. Now living in South Dakota I am willing to guess I have the largest AMSOIL inventory with two retail stores and every product in stock. It requires me to order a minimum of three, six foot high pallets of product monthly just to keep up with the demand. You can do the same.
I recently made adjustments to the stores to operate more efficiently so I could once again concentrate on my downline dealer support. Presently I work my AMSOIL business 6 days a week. If I could go back to 1997 I wouldn’t have changed a thing!

When we talk about being industry leaders, it’s not just lip service. We couldn’t feel more strongly about
offering advanced, premium products. We use the best base oils, we only want the best additives and our suppliers know it – they don’t even bother offering “average” chemicals.
In order to keep pushing technology forward we must have the people in place to lead the charge. We’ve hired experts who are passionate about their fields, and we continue to invest in their training to ensure they are well equipped to maintain the company’s position as an industry leader. Recently, Vice President, Technical Development Dan Peterson and Technical Product Manager – Drivetrain Mike Caruso achieved the status of Certified Lubrication Specialist (CLS) from the Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE). CLS status is highly regarded within the industry. In fact, there are only 1,300 people worldwide
who have earned the title. Four of them work at AMSOIL.
Others in the company hold a variety of certificates, awards and achievements from industry organizations and universities as well. We have assembled a team of experts in every aspect of our
business, from oil analysis to search engine optimization. The key to finding these people is their passion. People who are passionate about their field are driven, demand quality and pursue people and organizations that hold similar values.
We know that when you visit us in Superior, Wis. or speak to any of our employees on the phone, that passion is evident. It is what drives us to continue working on your behalf, developing new tools and improving existing tools, such as the AMSOIL Locator on our website. The Locator updates you’ll read about in this issue have been implemented to help customers find you and your accounts. We are planning our largest national marketing push to date. You are going to see more advertisements in
more places than ever before. This will result in more people looking for AMSOIL products, and most of them will begin their search online, ultimately finding one of your websites or our corporate site and
the AMSOIL Locator. You can capitalize on this in multiple ways.
Make sure you are leads certified through the T-1 Certification Program. When people use the AMSOIL Locator to find a Dealer, your contact information will appear and you’ll have the opportunity to make sales.
Maintain a presence online. Ensure your website is updated with current AMSOIL marketing messages and technical information. If you don’t have a website, explore your options through the AMSOIL Digital Marketing Program or contact a local web designer to have one built.
Register new retail accounts and ensure they qualify for the AMSOIL Locator. Most consumers prefer shopping at traditional parts stores, and many of them will use the Locator to find retail locations
or installers in their area. Making sure you have Locator-qualified retail accounts will
help you increase sales.
Update your retail accounts’ Locator information. It will help consumers find what they’re looking for, and it will increase the likelihood of your accounts receiving the additional business.
We are counting on you, our most passionate group of experts, to take these steps and maximize the results of our efforts. Doing so will help you most of all.
