The Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) launched a new online initiative to reward outdoor power equipment dealers already listed on the Propane Equipment Dealer Point who encourage other dealers to enlist on the database.
PERC’s Propane Equipment Dealer Point is a free, searchable, online database that helps connect landscape contractors with local, knowledgeable dealers committed to selling propane mowers.
“The Propane Equipment Dealer Point has grown extensively since we first launched it, which makes it easier for landscape contractors to connect with knowledgeable propane equipment dealers in their area,” said Jeremy Wishart, PERC director of off-road business development. “As we continue to grow the Dealer Point roster, we thought it would be fun to reward existing Dealer Point members with a gift and a chance at a cash prize if they refer other dealers to sign up.”
For each qualified application submitted online to Dealer Point, the dealer listed as the new applicant’s referral will receive a Gerber multi-tool and have their name entered into a drawing for $1,000 that will take place at the end of 2018. The multi-tool gifts are limited to five per referring dealer, but the number of entries for the $1,000 drawing are unlimited.
The application is available at propane.com/dealerpointapplication
Since launching in summer 2016, PERC’s Propane Equipment Dealer Point has grown to include more than 600 dealers. Benefits of a free Propane Equipment Dealer Point listing include:
- Potential customers being sent straight to the dealer’s doorstep.
- The dealer is presented as a go-to source for information about propane equipment.
- The dealer gets access to educational materials on propane equipment as well as the benefits of the fuel, such as reduced greenhouse gas emissions and low maintenance costs.
Equipment dealers who don’t currently offer propane equipment, but are interested in providing contractors with an alternative to gasoline and diesel equipment can learn how to get started here.
