ARE GM RECALLS STARTING TO HURT SALES FOR GM DEALERS? *****************************************************************************Initially the answer was NO it really didn't have any noticeable effect.

"Regardless, it appears the lead provider model is in deep trouble and might be going the way of the DoDo Bird. I predict CRM Companies will now aggressively work to develop tools for dealers to create their own leads. "

How many Vendors are YOU Paying who are Selling your Customer Data to Other Vendors for Cash? AND... is your customer information ultimately being sold by vendors you paid to other car dealers who are your competition?

Isn't it…

Jim,

    I totally understand, they wanted to make sure they got all their value from Da'Man!  I know that I'd be doing some traveling in the immediate future as part of my business.  There's a company in Georgia that I'll be visiting with, so we'll catch up eventually.  I'm actually surprised a local dealer called you in, as people in this area are very resistant to change.  I'll let you know when I'm heading down your way.

Jim its time you take on this fortune magazine on behave of all the hard working best intentioned salepeople out there in America.

Thank you for the friend request.  Why were you in Elmira a few weeks ago?  Man, I would've loved to chat with you.  Maybe the next time you're in the area.

So, you like to bench press!

OK. No Sales Pitch, just the truth. What can I expect from the Dealer Internet Battle? How is the schedule laid out? I know enough to be able to discuss these topics, but not enough to turn them into profits for my dealership. I do NOT want to attend, if its going to be a sales pitch to attend all of the speakers individual events. That happens too often. Why do I NEED to attend this event?

My pleasure. You are someone I have heard much about and feel I can learn a lot from. Your knowledge and experience will make me able to offer the support our dealers deserve. :)
