To become profitable, it is critical to:
And perhaps most importantly, start with a profitable service plan!
For many oil companies, service plans represent an enormous untapped opportunity. Many dealers have service plans that are underpriced, confusing and poor representations of the quality service they provide.We've helped more than 125 companies achieve success they had not considered possible. It is not unusual for us to add tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars to a company's bottom line by restructuring the way their service plans are priced, marketed or sold. Best of all, we've figured out how to do it with few customer complaints.
The truth is, you won't even understand all of the opportunities you have until you call us to help you analyze your options. We've conducted tons of market research with homeowners to understand how they make choices and perceive value.
We've helped companies in virtually every type of market--rural, suburban and urban--in more than two dozen states. Put this enormous experience to work for your company. We're so confident, we guarantee the results!

– John Tolan, Sail Energy
I have been a Warm Thoughts Client for 20 years. They handle every aspect of our company’s marketing strategy – print, web, social media, vehicle design, advertising, direct mail. They have an unmatched knowledge of our business. They have a great team, and do a terrific job of bringing new ideas to our company, and executing for us. I would highly recommend Warm Thoughts to anyone in the heating oil, propane or HVAC business.”

Despite your great reputation, I still don’t think most people realize all the ways you can help them move their business forward. Your team has been a great asset to us.”

After we passed a state check off program, we needed a plan that would use the money wisely to grow gallons in the state. We interviewed several agencies, both national and local, before deciding on Warm Thoughts. We’ve been exceptionally impressed with their strategy, creative work, and client service, across a wide range of projects. In fact, I’d put it up against anything I’ve seen in this industry. The hardest thing to do when you spend money on marketing is to prove it made a difference. Warm Thoughts has made a difference for the dealers of North Carolina.”
– John Jessup, North Carolina Propane Gas Association
I think people look at your extensive experience, and mistakenly think it comes at the cost of being innovative and creative. Nothing could be further from the truth. You constantly bring new ideas and fresh creative promotion, and you understand the intersection between our customers, employees and our limited resources. Whenever I face a tough challenge, I feel much better knowing you are on my team.”
– Marty Romanelli, Burt’s Reliable
Let’s face it- there are cheaper options than working with Warm Thoughts. And the same is true for our fuel customers when it comes to working with our company. I never understood why fuel companies would think they deserve a premium, but then use cheap, cookie-cutter marketing that accomplishes very little. You guys make it easy for me to focus on growing my business. You give great service, good ideas, look out for my interests, and deliver the goods (ie: sales and increased profit) so I can deliver the gallons.”
