    Being an Owner Operator in the North Dakota oilfield I’m constantly growing my customer base ...well because status quo isn’t what I like.

    Given that, how do you guys find new customers.... so far I’ve found 6 new customer off social media ( Facebook ) but I would love more than that!

    Again, let’s all grow because the big guys are slowly dying off in these slow times.

    The oilfield is all about who you know - and who knows you.

    A handshake almost always beats a phone call or an email. So get out in town and start knocking on doors and visitig with folks at the cafes, bars, grocery stores, and at church.

    I was on a rig, when a drill bit salesman came to location. Company man asked him if it would drill. Salesman said, if this thing falls off my tailgate, it'll spud ten feet. That was the extent of the conversation. Company man bought the $25,000 bit. I don't know anything about trucking in the oilfield, but after putting in fifteen years of oilfield work, I know a firm handshake and a look in the eye can be all you need.

    If you haul water or fuel, I'd hit locations. Company man can push the issue to his management. If it's flatbed, get with the guys that rent well heads. Cactus, Camesa, etc. Crane companies might take a business card too, in case they need someone to haul counterweights or something in a pinch.

    The bit may have cost $25.000 but it guarantee you they rented it at a day rate. It is not in the best interest of the well owners tax plan to own any equipment.
