Dealers Targeted by Other Business Opportunities

AMSOIL Dealers are occasionally targeted to participate in other business opportunities. Although some offers may be legitimate, many are scams or inappropriate offers for AMSOIL Dealers. AMSOIL is not able to prevent most of these solicitations, and Dealers are urged to exercise caution and evaluate opportunities on a buyer-beware basis. The success of AMSOIL Dealers is appealing to those offering these types of solicitations, and with the prominence of the World Wide Web, these offers are expected to increase.

AMSOIL Dealers are free to participate in another business. However, because some opportunities can contradict the AMSOIL message, or even involve products whose use would void the AMSOIL warranty, it is not recommended. Participation can also detract efforts and resources away from the AMSOIL business opportunity, which is a proven effective, profitable and stable business. AMSOIL policy states that Dealers who participate in a second business must refrain from contacting, targeting or soliciting all non-personally-sponsored AMSOIL Dealers.

Injen/AMSOIL Air Intake Systems Discontinued

Injen/AMSOIL Diesel and Gasoline Air Intake Systems are discontinued and available while supplies last.

From the AMSOIL Dealer Sales Department

Well, here we are in August 2011. Hard to believe the year is more than half over, isn’t it? Time flies when you’re having fun, but don’t lose sight of the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year.

Now is a good time to pick a nice place in the shade to relax, grab a glass of lemonade and take a look at the goals you set at the beginning of the year. How many Dealers did you want to sponsor by this time of the year? How many retail or commercial accounts did you want to sign up? Have you met your targets? Was attending AU one of your goals? It was for over 350 Dealers who attended this year and are now out pounding the pavement with new enthusiasm and information to bring their customers.

Take a look at your goals and modify them if necessary. Refocus your efforts on where you want to be by the end of 2011. It is not too late. And, be sure to call on your sponsoring Dealer, Direct Jobber or the Dealer Sales Department for any direction or advice on how you can make the last half of 2011 the absolute best. Do it now before the snow flies.

AMSOIL Unveils New Online Business Tools

The AMSOIL Dealer Zone has been redesigned with the goal of improving navigation, ease of use and searchability. In addition, the Dealer Zone has moved to its own website created specifically for AMSOIL accounts. Now Dealers can simply bookmark http://myaccount.amsoil.com/ and surf directly to the information pertinent to running an AMSOIL business.

The Dealer Dashboard is a new tool offering enhanced reporting services to Premium Dealer Zone subscribers. The Dashboard provides a quick, easy review of business statistics, including new customers and leads, account expirations, personally-sponsored customers, pending commissionable orders and 13-month earnings history.

AMSOIL has created a series of web-based tools with shortcuts that can be installed on many popular mobile devices including iPhone™, Android™ and newer Blackberry™ platforms. Applications optimized for mobile devices include the Auto/Light-Truck Product Application Guide, Dealer Dashboard, Message Center and Product Price Look-Up tool. New mobile apps can be accessed by clicking the navigation icon in the new Dealer Zone or by browsing to http://myapps.amsoil.com/.

See the July AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

Signature Series 0W-20 Packaging Change

AMSOIL Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil (ASM) is now packaged with green labels and caps. The new packaging will begin appearing in July as inventory of Signature Series 0W-20 packaged with silver labels and caps is depleted.

Jiffy Lube Drops 3,000-Mile Oil Change Recommendation

Vehicle manufacturer-recommended oil change intervals have increased well beyond the traditional 3,000-mile interval in recent years. Ford recommends 10,000-mile drain intervals with its 2011 vehicles, while vehicles equipped with electronic oil monitoring systems often allow extended drain intervals of up to and even beyond the 10,000-mile mark.

Most recently, Jiffy Lube has also abandoned the traditional 3,000-mile drain interval, recommending customers follow the manufacturer-recommended interval. The new recommendation is currently in place at more than 70 percent of Jiffy Lube locations, with the balance expected to participate by the end of the year.

Outdoor 10’ x 10’ Event Tents Available

AMSOIL has made a special purchase of 40 10’x10’ E-Z Up Eclipse II Tents. Ideal for both outdoor and indoor trade shows and events, these AMSOIL-customized tents (G2741) have an overall height of 12’7” and are specially priced for T-1 Certified Dealers. The one-piece high-strength steel frame collapses down to 60”x12”x12” and comes with a carry bag. The black 500D polyester top and four side walls are coated to resist water, ultraviolet rays and mildew, and are fire-retardant-treated to meet fire code CPAI-84. The AMSOIL logo is printed on all four peaks and one of the side walls, and the tents include a set of heavy-duty stakes for securing in inclement conditions. The full retail price of the tent is $1,100, but it is available to T-1 Dealers at a 50 percent co-op of $550 U.S. ($599 Canada). The tents ship in two boxes: one weighing approximately 80 lbs. and the other approximately 40 lbs. Due to the limited quantities and large frame size, shipping for U.S. orders will be from Superior. The average insured UPS ground delivery is $70. Canadian orders will ship from Edmonton and Toronto. Tents are available only while supplies last. Tent orders must be placed individually through Telephone Ordering, and actual freight costs plus insurance will be charged.
