"Congratulations Justin. A commendable first post. However, I wasn't familiar with "Hand Raiser leads" and a more thorough explanation of exactly what they are, or at least how you interpret the term, would have been a nice…"
"While I understand the principle of 24 hour chat with new "will call anytime night or day" customers, I'm inclined to believe it could be most effective handled internally by the dealership. Honestly, I'd really like to…"
"A nice thought provoker, Anne, but the trend for women to have more input (decision making power) was a cultural change that began "breathing" in the '50s, and gained a life of its own during the 60s and the 70s. And, it…"
