How Can We Help?

When you join an association like the National Tractor Parts Dealer Association (NTPDA) they should be working on your behalf and not the other way Benefits-sm around. Ya think? Look, we get it, we've been members of other associations over the years and the relationship often seems to be a "one way street". That's not us. Our mission is to help you and your business grow. That's what we promised when you joined and that is our goal each and every day.

So, how do we do that?

You do know that when you do any print media and use the NTPDA logo that we'll send you a check up to $300 a year. The Bulletin is excluded but not your local newspaper, magazines, etc.  All we ask is that you send to our Texas office the ad so we can see the date and publication. 

You do know that as a member you get a major discount from our friends at Allied Information Network. Allied and NTPDA have been partners for years and years and as an NTPDA member you receive a discount when you use their service to list your parts.

Allied Information LogoYou do know that as a member using Allied that we have a parts search on the home page of our NTPDA website and that we often get calls from consumers looking for parts and we drop what we're doing and help them search for what they are looking for and then send them to our members.

You do know that as a member you have access to the NTPDA Library full of business related materials that you can check out and use to help you better promote and manage your business.

You do know that you have access to a marketing professional who will, at no additional charge, answer questions about marketing and advertising.

You do know that we have Associate Members in the trucking industry that, because you are a member, you will save thousands of dollars each year by contracting with them...

We're here to help and if you stump us with a question our goal is the find the answer.  

There is great value in your NTPDA Membership and we're just getting started.

Put It On Video - Nashville & Beyond

As we make plans for a very different Annual Meeting and Trade Show we kicked around the idea of allowing our members to create a brief 3 – 5 minute video Video Crew to showcase their products/services.  Stay with me on this because it’s a great marketing tool for your business.

As you may know, due to COVID19 we’ll not be having a Trade Show in Nashville this coming January but (and this is where it gets interesting) how about hooking up with your fellow members via a produced video that we’ll not only share with attendees who come to Nashville in January but then release to all our members during the months following the scheduled January meeting?  Think of this as an enhanced Member Benefit! This is for all our members, Regular and Associate.

Here’s what I’m hoping for:

  • Create a short video with your crew to highlight your product/service;
  • Make sure it is “evergreen”. In other words no time limits on pricing, etc. If you have special NTPDA Member Pricing make sure it can carry through for months;
  • The video can be funny or serious...but you know this crew...if you can create with some humor...so much the better;
  • Put it on a Flash Drive and send it to me or, if you have the ability to use a Dropbox that will work as well.
  • We’ll then take your video and create the program for attendees and then begin to share it on our NTPDA Blog and through our social media platforms.

Work for you?  And, the Board has said there will be some prizes for “Best Of” so get cracking!  Deadline for you to get me your video is December 15, 2020.

Thanks and my address is: 2009 80th Street, Windsor Heights, Iowa 50324
