The most effective meetings are those held face to face. Why? It is because people are very social and as such behave and respond differently in a physical gathering versus a conference call.
The benefit of being face to face with someone is that it helps to build trust in a relationship quickly because you get instant feedback both verbally and more importantly non-verbally. This is true for Dealer meetings as well as business meetings with prospects or customers.
Hosting regular Dealer meetings is a practice of successful AMSOIL Dealers. Al Amatuzio and other AMSOIL staff held many Dealer meetings in the early years of the company and those meetings were the key to launching the AMSOIL business. Al was able to look people in the eye and transfer his passion and knowledge, thus enabling others to in turn transfer it to others and so on.
Getting started is easy. Pick a day, pick a location and pick a topic (or two). The keys are having something of interest to share, providing food and holding them regularly. AMSOIL can help with the topics portion through the wide variety of information in the Dealer Zone. It can be as simple as watching an Information Series, then discussing it and demonstrating how to use the information. You can also review data bulletins, Technical Service Bulletins, recorded presentations and much more. Dig into the Dealer Zone today to develop your meeting topics list and while you are at it, don’t forget to post your meeting.
