Earn $50–Send Us a Video That Shows How You Assembled Your Duramax or Rion Greenhouse

Saturday, November 15th, 2008

Do you want to earn some extra money? All you have to do is video tape the process of assembling your greenhouse. Your Greenhouse can be a Rion Greenhouse or a Duramax Greenhouse.

Our future customers would really benefit from the lessons that you learned.

We will pay you $50 for your video. That’s right…$50 for the video.

The only requirements for the video to earn the $50 payment is the following:

–Keep the video clean—no foul words

–Keep the video positive…help future customers with helpful ideas or just a video of how your greenhouse got assembled. Do not use the video to complain about putting the greenhouse together.

–Put a sign up on your Duramax or Rion greenhouse (you can use very large lettering on a piece of paper (please use a magic marker for lettering) that is at least standard notebook size paper–8.5″ x 11″ paper..but bigger is better). The sign needs to include the name Supply Hero large enough that we can see it in your video. The reason for the sign is to keep other websites from copying your video and using it on their website.

–The video must include all aspects of building the greenhouse and not just a video of the final product after it is built.

Email the video to customerservice@supplyhero.com. Please include your name, address, hometown and phone number. We will only publish your first initial, last name and hometown. We will NOT publish your phone number, address or email address. We just need them in case we need to contact you and definitely to mail you a check.

Send Us A Picture of Your Duramax or Rion Greenhouse and We Will Post It On Our Website

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

We want to share your Duramax Greenhouse or Rion Greenhouse with everyone else. You would be helping future greenhouse customers understand the different looks that greenhouses can take on. Feel free to include your family, your friend, and/or your pet in the picture. We will publish the picture with or without people in it…but, we sure would like to see our happy customers.

For example, many of our customers want to know how a greenhouse would look like when it is placed on gravel, dirt, concrete, wooden ties or a backyard deck.

Customers also want to know how others landscaped the area around their greenhouse

If you have an unusual set up inside your greenhouse we hope that you will include a picture of the inside of your greenhouse, too.

I am certain that you had questions about your greenhouse purchase which you did not really understand until it arrived and was put together on your property. Please help us help future customers!

Please email your picture to customerservice@supplyhero.com. Please include your name and hometown. We will only use the first initial for your first name when we post it. We would also like to hear about your experience buying a greenhouse from Supply Hero…we will be posting those comments as well.

Supply Hero is Proud to Announce a New Product Line–Jam, Jelly and Preserves!

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

One of the benefits of owning your own business is deciding what products to carry. Accordingly, we are really proud to annouce that Supply Hero has decided to begin selling a line of Jelly, Jam and Preserves made by The Jam Shoppe.

This new product line may seem a bit unusual for a company like Supply Hero to sell. Well, the truth is that it is a bit unusual and at the same time a bit normal….let me explain.

While it is a bit unusual, it will seem a little more normal in the coming months. Supply Hero will be adding a lot of food products to its line up. These food products will be items that you might want to add to your kitchen or snack area at the office. Or you may want to order the food products to fill a vending machine at the office. But, the primary reason that we are carrying our new line of Jams from The Jam Shoppe is because the CEO  really likes them. And the since this particular post is being written by the CEO (me), I thought that I would explain.

When I was growing up, my family loved Black Raspberry Jam or Preserves. We use to grow them in our backyard and make our own. When I grew up, I tried to find Black Raspberries…it was nearly impossible. So I looked for Black Raspberry Jam everywhere I went. It is easy to find Black Raspberry Jelly without any seeds…but, that is not the Black Raspberry Jam that I was use to. We made it with the seeds.

And then one day, I found a product from The Jam Shoppe. It was Black Raspberry Jam with the seeds (it also comes in seedless and no sugar varieties). I bought it and loved it.

I called the Jam Shoppe to find out where I could get more of it. That is when it occurred to me that Supply Hero should sell this great product.

So whether you are interested in Black Raspberry Jam with seeds (like me), Red Raspberry, Strawberry or any of the 15 varieties, I hope that you will try this product.

We have a flat shipping rate for up to 8 jars (16 ounce size) so we would encourage you to buy at least 8. If you exceed 8, then their is another flat rate for the next 8 and so on. This Jam is going to be a GREAT holiday present. We will be shipping holiday orders in a holiday gift box upon request. You can call in your jam order and request the gift box or just email us the request immediately after placing it online and we will make certain to include your order in a gift box.

In any event, we hope that you enjoy this product as much as we do. Let us know your thoughts by emailing us at customerservice@supplyhero.com with your comments about the jam and please provide us your first name, last initial and hometown…we will publish some of your comments on the website.

I thought that you might want a list of the Jams, Jelly and Preserves that we are carrying…here is the list.

Apricot Jam

Seedless Black Raspberry Jam
Seedless No Sugar Added Black Raspberry Jam
Blackberry Jam
Blueberry Jam

Why is Supply Hero including restaurant reviews in it’s blog?

Friday, November 7th, 2008

Great Question!

Frankly, it is because we love food. But, just as important, we want to include all sorts of items in our blog to make it more valuable to everyone. After all, restaurant and food service products are a big part of business. We will select restaurants without any consideration as to whether they are customers.

To increase the value of the restaurant reviews, we are going to try to get a picture (when possible) of an item that Supply Hero sells in its restaurant and food service section and that the restaurant that is being reviewed uses in its operation.

We are a Kansas City based company so you can expect a lot of Kansas City based restaurants, but we will also cover restaurants that we eat at when we travel.

Most of us believe that Kansas City is the home of BBQ. Well, I know that everyone would like to challenge that, but please be assured that we will review a lot of BBQ restaurants in Kansas City.

If you have the opportunity to eat at one of the restaurants that we review, we hope that you will take the opportunity to write us with your thoughts….we will definitely publish your comments as well.
