Welcome to the September digital edition of OPE Business magazine!
Business is about relationships with your customers and your suppliers. For this issue, we dove deep into the relationship between OPE dealers and manufacturers of wholegoods. We spoke to equipment manufacturers plus several OPE dealers to look at the current state of relations, the points of tension, and the reality of a solution.
Our Dealer Profile story takes us back to North Carolina to meet a dealer with experience in powersports and power equipment, and a marketing plan to increase visibility.
We have a first-person story about the tools and accessories you sell, or at least the ones you should consider adding to your inventory rotation.
Numbers tell stories, and we look closely at the numbers shared by OPE dealers on their business accounts through Q2 of this year – the analysis is vital and can present a good comparison.
And our friends at Landscape Business shared their own data about the likely purchase habits of landscape professionals.
Also, look at the Hot News pages for information about the OPE Business Dealer Forum, scheduled for early November in Dallas. You should seriously consider attending. And remember to nominate your peers for one of our awards – the 40 Under 40, or the Movers & Shakers awards.
