My name is Jason Mickelson and I am the internet sales manager at Karl Chevrolet. Our department has 5 of the best internet sales staff and we need another team member.

Karl Chevrolet is one of the largest independently owned dealers of any brand vehicle and we need to fill an opening in our internet department. We are looking for a professional who knows how to help people get what they want. We are offering…See More
"This will be interesting to see how it all plays out. Does this mean that GM dealers will not only have to use Cobalt for their website, will we also be forced to use ADP for our contact management solutions in order to receive leads? Hopefully…"
"What does the owner want? If the owner is ok with tattoos and cargo shorts, that is his/her call and the employees can choose to work there or not. If the owner doesn't approve and you want to work somewhere that you can express yourself this…"
"Mr. Shetterly and Mr. Kelly are spot on. It depends a lot on the sales environment that you sell in, but professional is professional. If you see yourself as a professional and you act as a professional and you dress like a professional, then you…"
"The payout is over, but the pressure to respond quickly has not reduced. I didn't care for the program initially, but they were successful in at least one thing and that was proving that they could lower the response time. 24 hours or greater…"

"Well said Ralph!

I am curious as to how many fellow ADM members are negatively affected by the new rule that GM added to the Digital rewards program. As many of you have probably already read, they added a new qualifier for dealers to hit. Now your Leads-To-Sales need to equal a 1 to 1 ratio.
