In reality if there is only one premium member at the company only that premium member would get the lead, we hope the lead is not shared with a non premium member at that same company.

So are you saying as a customer you wouldn't expect to be able to go to a manufactures website and locate a dealer? Am I supposed to go find the product I want then go someplace else to find where to buy it.

Re: Committed to Dealer Success

No I'm not. In the case of Formax, you would call them and they would give you the name of the Authorized Dealer and I'm assuming it would be the same case with Muratec since there are no dealer locators on their web sites. Is there really a need to have 6-8 dealers covering the same geo area along with the Direct channel. Here's an example, in my territory in which we are Authorized I can't remember the last time I received a lead. Some of the manufacturers sights are slanted to delivering...

That CopiersPlus site is terrible! I think www.datamaxtexas.com is just about the best out there. www.bmisystems.com is a great site if a customer is interested in tinkering & doing research about the company. www.asibiz.com is simple & informational.

The Bears and Salmon Don't like Toner or the smell of Ozone so they stay away from my office. The Gold Mines all shut down about 3 weeks ago because the price dropped by about $500 an ounce in one day.

Boy, I sure do like smoked salmon, I used to go to upstate NY for salmon fishing, haven't been there in years. We would fish the tributaries of Lake Ontario. I'd catch some salmon and the send it to the smoke shop. If I caught salmon on the first day of the trip. I would have smoked salmon waiting for me when I got home!!! One day, I had the NY State record King Salmon dragged in front of me all 47lbs of it. That was then not sure what the record is now. Art

Re: Selling Copiers "Should I Go Out on My Own"

bmi4u ·
While we are reminiscing about starting an office equipment dealership, it was 37 years ago that I started Business Machines Inc. (BMI) in Raleigh. BMI started as an Olivetti City Dealer and later into a full service dealership. Over the years BMI transitioned from a typewriter/calculator dealer to a computer, fax, and finally a copier dealer. It was August, 2012 that I started my exit of the industry by selling BMI to CEI with the agreement to work with them for one more year. As I write...

I had been a pretty successful typewriter salesman, when I first applied for a job with Nashua. So much so my pride and joy was the Mercedes Benz I drove. When told by the Nashua Sales Manager that my Benz was inappropriate, and that I had to have a wagon, I knocked the job back. I soon changed my mind not long after though, when I joined a U-Bix dealership after I realised how much money was being made in the copier industry. We sold a copier called the U-Bix 101, which was a bit of a...

Larry I believe, you believe it, yet it seems to me the involvement of "C" level execs on LinkedIn is very low, unless they are all lurkers. There's only a handful of "C" level execs in our industry that promote, inspire and engage. One of my biggest concerns with LinkedIn is that most "C" levels execs either don't have the time or are too busy running the ship to become active. Maybe that next generation may turn the tide with LinkedIn, but for right now, I know more Boomers that are much...

Art, Nice comments. Love the Promote, Inspire & Engage! Just as the dealership website is a necessity so is their LinkedIn presence as well. Most don't give a second thought but they should as this directly affects their image. Setting aside 30 minutes per day is not asking much. Set the example.

Harold, We don't have a yearly price. Our subscribers pay monthly for our services and the cost varies based on the subscription. I'd be happy to discuss your companies needs and provide you with the plan that works for you. I can be reached at 1-877-412-8348. As a side note, our members generate recurring revenue directly from our user management licensing which typically covers the monthly cost and more. So essentially to them it's free!

We bought a MakerBot and took it to a local Business Expo and we were BY FAR the biggest hit of the show. We were front page news on the local paper and on every news cast. We have no idea what we are going to do or how but the media exposure alone more than paid for the printer.
