2016 Direct Jobber Convention

The 2016 AMSOIL Direct Jobber Convention will be held Oct. 6-8, 2016 at the Marriott Waterside Hotel in beautiful Tampa Bay, Fla. The Marriott Waterside is a 5-star hotel with a marina right out the back door. Come sit on the back patio and watch the boats go by as you sip your favorite beverage and visit with other AMSOIL Direct Jobbers and AMSOIL corporate staff. Attend the corporate presentations to learn where AMSOIL is going over the next few years. Take a stroll on the Tampa Riverwalk, also conveniently located just out the back door of the hotel. Be part of the fun as AMSOIL Direct Jobbers (maybe you!) are recognized for reaching higher levels of achievement and simply enjoy the warmth of the Florida sun.

AMSOIL has secured a block of rooms for Direct Jobbers at a competitive rate of $168 per night. Because the hotel is located in downtown Tampa Bay, parking is at a premium. If you fly into Tampa Bay International Airport, taking a taxi to the hotel is advised. The hotel is only nine miles from the airport and estimated one-way taxi fare is $25. Due to limited parking in the area, we recommend staying at the host hotel. If you decide to do some sight-seeing on your own, the street car can pick you up right outside the front door of the hotel and take you to places such as the Tampa Bay History Center, Channelside Bay Plaza (shopping and dining), the Florida Aquarium or Ybor City (described as the French Quarter of Tampa Bay).

If you decide to stay elsewhere and drive to the hotel, parking rates are $24 per day, but for AMSOIL Direct Jobbers staying at the hotel, parking is $12 per day.

If you wish to access the Internet from your room, we have negotiated the price from $12 per day to only $1 per day. For the price, convenience and camaraderie with other AMSOIL Direct Jobbers and AMSOIL corporate staff, you just can’t beat staying at the host hotel in downtown Tampa Bay.

Keep watching for exciting news regarding the Convention’s social events and travel incentives. We look forward to seeing you in Tampa Bay Oct. 6-8 for the 2016 Direct Jobber Convention.

New Dirt Bike Transmission Fluid Expands Market

New AMSOIL Synthetic Dirt Bike Transmission Fluid (DBTF) is designed for riders who prefer a dedicated transmission fluid instead of a multi-purpose motor oil.
Last year, in response to market demand, we introduced AMSOIL Synthetic Dirt Bike Oil (DB40, DB50, DB60). It is fine-tuned for confident clutch feel and outstanding wear protection – benefits riders demand.

While Synthetic Dirt Bike Oil delivers excellent performance, some riders, particularly owners of dirt bikes that use a separate sump for the transmission fluid, prefer a dedicated transmission fluid instead of a multi-purpose motor oil. New AMSOIL Synthetic Dirt Bike Transmission Fluid (DBTF) fulfills this need, helping you reach more customers and grow sales.

See the February AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

New Dealer Onboarding Program Builds Foundations

AMSOIL now offers a program to guide new, unsponsored Dealers as they start their new businesses.
While the majority of new Dealers start their businesses by registering with the help of an experienced Dealer, many of them register directly with AMSOIL and are subsequently assigned to a T-1 Certified Dealer. In an effort to strengthen the AMSOIL opportunity, we are rolling out a new program on Feb. 1 designed to welcome new, unsponsored Dealers to the Dealer network and provide a foundation on which they can build a successful business. The Dealer Onboarding Program provides an orientation to the company and coaches new Dealers in the beginning phase of their AMSOIL Dealership, helping them and the T-1 Dealers to whom they are assigned earn higher commissions, faster.

See the February AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

Commercial and Retail Accounts Can Now Self-Register

The registration process is now more accessible and less complicated.
Potential retail and commercial accounts visit www.amsoil.com every day and request information about AMSOIL products. Many of them want to register for an account and start buying AMSOIL products immediately due to the growing popularity of synthetic lubricants and the strong AMSOIL brand. They know they want AMSOIL products, but they don’t want to wait for registration packets or Dealer assistance. A new registration form on the Business Opportunities page at www.amsoil.com allows prospective retail and commercial accounts to self-register, giving these valuable customers what they want and speeding the account registration process for accounts and Dealers alike.

See the February AMSOIL Magazine for more information.

AMSOIL Updates 12-Store Policy

In order to maximize opportunity for Dealers, AMSOIL has updated its 12-Store Policy with the following:

Businesses that own more than 12 retail outlets may only register individual outlets as separate retail accounts. Each outlet/account must have the authority to establish an account and place individual orders for its own store. Invoices, co-op advertising credit and other documents will be sent to the individual account. Individual outlets/accounts may not use centralized distribution, group shipments, transfer inventory between outlets or combine co-op advertising credits. Exceptions to this will be considered for certain retail segments that are not in direct conflict with the best interests of the Dealer opportunity. Dealers must work in conjunction with the Dealer Sales Department in order for businesses to be considered for an exception. An AMSOIL Dealer may register and/or sell to a maximum of 24 individual retail outlets that are owned by the same business.
