There was a time when door knocking was the in-thing to get a local job shop to take a peek at your machine listings. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good opportunity for YOU to then take a peek at what they currently have running in the back warehouse. Your eyes would then instantly glisten the moment you see that exhausted knee mill that probably won’t make it ‘till Christmas anymore.
But, let’s face it, you are probably understaffed to regularly stay in front of your local job shops. Well, what if I told you that they have been Googling for a replacement knee mill. And, what if I told you that they have been searching but just haven’t found a local machine tool distributor to support them yet?
Try Google Searching a Machine Distributor Near You
Just for fun, try Googling “milling machines for sale in Kentucky”. Do you see Amerigo Machinery on the first page? That’s my buddy Glen’s website. He runs a 3-man band machine tool distributor shop. No doubt, they’re hard workers but it is virtually impossible for them to consistently be in front of their potential customers. So, then they started working smarter some years ago by having a website that clearly shows what they have in stock. More importantly, as you have seen, they come up on the first page of Google when you search for the machine that they offer.
