"Control what you can control"

Started by Chris Younggren in PROCESS MANAGEMENT- CRM, BDC and lead Management Processes, Emails, Phone Scripts, Facility Design, Tools and Suppliers Mar 18. 0 Replies

"Control what you can control" Have your staff take time to reach out by phone to every client in their data base....Why? 1. Your connection rate will never be higher. Your clients might actually have time to talk with you since they are likely on lock down and maybe a bit bored. Ask how they are feeling and how can you help make life easier for them? 2. Your clients will remember how you treated them during these crazy times for years to come because in a crisis people reveal their true…Continue

BDC or Virtual BDC

As an experienced BDC director for the last 15 years and in the car business for 30 I wanted to reach out to those who know. The audience here.

Why car dealerships are good for society?

Started by Chris Younggren in Uncategorized or Does Not Fit Into Any Pre-Defined Category Jan 11. 0 Replies

I am doing a project on positive dealership stories so I typed, "why car dealerships are good for society" into the Youtube search, the only positive message I could find was footage from an award banquet!! It's the same story on Google search. Sad because dealers add millions of dollars in property taxes and jobs for our society. I understand there are very "bad" dealer operators, but mind you, didn't ask Youtube or Google for dealer scams or fraud stories.That being said, I would love to hear…Continue
