Sparks Team AMSOIL Training Call for Monday October 27th, 2014
This weeks call we discuss a recent trade show that the Sparks AMSOIL attended. The GIE Expo is a targeted industry trade show for anyone that works in and with Landscaping, Lawn Care industry. These included, buyers, dealers, retailers, manufacturers’ representatives, rental shops, and distributors of lawn, garden and outdoor products and equipment for consumer and commercial use; also lawn and landscape professionals, general contractors, forest land owners, golf course superintendents and parks & municipal buyers.

With over 19,000 in attendance our AMSOIL booth was busy over this 2 1/2 day show. We talked with many current AMSOIL customers as well as registering over 88 new customers and accounts. Our team which consisted of Andriy Dyachuk Executive Direct Jobber, Jonathan & Kathy Hendley Direct Jobbers and myself.
Total number of registration for the show were: Dealers: 3, PC’s: 4, Commercial: 56, ROTS: 25. Our team is still following up with many customers that did not want to register at the show. Potentially we could have over 100 new customers from this show. The income from these accounts could add thousands of dollars per month to each dealer.
Doing shows is fun and a great way to build your team as well as train newer dealers. While some shows can be challenging to work we feel there is no better way to get yourself in front of thousands of people in a short amount of time. While we didn’t talk to all 19,000 attendee’s we probably had the chance to talk with several hundred each as well as hand out hundreds of pieces of literature.
Listen to this weeks AMSOIL dealer training call that features, Andriy, Jon and Kathy and myself talking about this great trade show.
