DIY Store vs Our Platform
Getting and maintaining your own online store is complicated, expensive, and as soon as you build one, it’s out-dated. When you use our platform you experience none of that frustration, none of that cost, and we’re constantly getting better.
Linkedin is Not a Marketplace
Linkedin is a popular place for people in the Oil & Gas industry to promote what they are buying or selling. But Linkedin is not a marketplace. It’s the wrong tool.
We believe there’s more effective ways to present your opportunities. It’s a big part of why we built this software. We think we can supercharge what we see already happening every day.
Feedback We’ve Received
Many decision makers love the idea of Oilmar, but get turned off by the success fees that we charge. But look at it like this…
We charge zero listing fees. You could list dozens or even hundreds of assets for sale, at no cost to you. We only get paid, if you get paid.
Other marketplaces will take fees upfront or they charge a monthly subscription. And you might not make a single sale!
With Oilmar, you can be dead certain. If we are charging you a fee, it’s because we just made you $$$$$. Our fees are always justified by sales.
What I Recommend
This advice is for sellers, especially those manufacturers and suppliers who are selling new equipment. Take something from your catalog, maybe it’s hard to sell, maybe it’s just not a well known offering, but for whatever reason it’s not a focus of your sales team, and put it on Oilmar. It’s low-risk with possibly a big reward.
Join During Soft-Launch
