At Proven Winners, plants aren't the only thing we're committed to growing. We’re also dedicated to growing your business by increasing your knowledge of Proven Winners plants and products. We understand the crucial role garden centers and their employees play in providing information and advice to people who love to garden. That’s why we’ve developed the Proven Winners Certified Retailer program - an ongoing partnership that offers you the opportunity to learn more about our plants and build awareness with your customers at the same time.
Certified retailers receive top-listings in Retailer Search. Update your locations and add the number of employees to certify by clicking here.Start Certification
When you become certified, you'll be the first to get Proven Winners news, and you’ll have the opportunity to become an active voice among retailers in the Proven Winners network. Your garden center will be given priority listing in your local area on the Proven Winners website. Most importantly, you’ll have a trained, knowledgeable staff that can assist your customers and increase your sales.
Did we mention that it's totally free? It's our way of saying thanks for choosing to carry Proven Winners plants. It's also a chance to show you we're serious about helping you grow your garden center.
Becoming a Proven Winners Certified Retailer is a breeze. Just follow the instructions below:
- Log in, or create your own account on this website.
- Ensure your account is upgraded to the professional status.
- Use the 'My Content' menu at the top to access 'My Account.'
- View the list of your registered locations by looking at the 'Locations' Tab.
- Add any locations that are missing.
- Once all of your locations are listed, click on each location and enter the number of employees you wish to certify at each location and choose your garden center reward for each certified employee (T-Shirt or $6 P.O.P. credit). (This option will only be available after the new iGarden Certification program has been posted after the beginning of the new year).
- Once you start certification for a location, employees can take the training and complete our iGarden Certified test, using one of the test codes.
- You can complete the certification process for a location at any time, so long as you have indicated that you wish at least one employee to be certified for that location.
- For each employee who completes the certification training by May 30th, your garden center will receive either a FREE T-shirt for that employee, or a $6 credit (coupon expires June 30,2013) per certified employee, for P.O.P. from the Proven Winners store. T-shirts will ship together once all registered employees have completed the training. The P.O.P. credit will be applied to the manager’s account at provenwinners.com under My Account.
