"I bet that FB advertising spend is up at the very least the same percentage if not more. One would think that the two performance growths aren't mere coincidences. "

"GREAT article, Tim. Very well prepared. We're seeing some of the same instances with a few of our clients, but we don't go in-depth near as much as you. Keep fighting the good fight. "

Architect vs. Interior Decorator: How to Rethink Your Dealership's Marketing Needs

Posted on January 22, 2014 at 5:00am 0 Comments

You are ready to traverse through a crowded sea of vendors at the upcoming NADA Convention in New Orleans. Your flight and hotel are booked. You have already looked over the workshop schedules. With that, you maybe still recognize even more can be learned by examining vendor offerings in the exhibit hall than from listening to the…

Not Wrong, but Different

Posted on October 22, 2013 at 2:13pm 0 Comments

Inevitably, pricing is a necessary aspect to a customer’s decision. They do their research online and expect to receive answers to their pricing questions. While many of us old folks were groomed to avoid pricing when on the phone or email with shoppers, evolution has thankfully adapted us to the practice of giving out a discounted price in advance of their visit. However, pricing questions no longer begin and end with the price of the vehicle. Shoppers want more from you? Do you give it to…

Is This the Beginning of the End for TrueCar?

Posted on August 22, 2013 at 8:51am 19 Comments

TrueCar has had a rollercoaster ride in the automotive retail industry over the past few years. However, it appears things may be taking a turn for the worse (both for TrueCar as well as its participating dealer clients). Read on, as I reveal their new policy changes that will have a negative impact on dealers, as well as my in-depth interview with a top eCommerce Directors about this change.

Don't Be an Answering Machine

Posted on August 16, 2013 at 12:29pm 2 Comments

While training a 13-store dealer group this week, I had the pleasure of meeting a salesperson and manager who assured me they were tip-top at taking sales calls. I was ecstatic. It isn’t everyday you’re brought in to advance dealerships in need of Internet and phone help and immediately run into someone that has such confidence in their expertise that it would (if I believed them) eliminate their need for any training. How wonderful. (I hope you can accept the…

You Have an Internet Department? Oh Wow!

Posted on June 19, 2013 at 9:29am 1 Comment

It amazes me how the humble nature of the automotive Internet revolution for dealers from the past has changed to ego-driven displays of self-aggrandizement. It wasn’t too long ago that you would speak to dealers who were more excited to learn than they were to pound their chest and roar to the crowd about their own accomplishments.



As another Digital Dealer Conference came and went last month, I think it is time we realize that no one has the whole “Internet thing” figured out.…

Re-Followup calls.

I'm thinking its the type of sales person being hired. Some are great when the prospect comes to them but hate outbound calling or prospecting. You can not teach a person like that to be a followup or outbound sales caller.

The solution- get a sales team made of sales people, folks who have been prospectors, outbound types. Don't hire retail sales type either. Thats not selling, its waiting for someone to come in the door.

In my opinion based on 25 years of working with dealer organizations as resellers of my product, if you don't consider and than readjust the type of sales person you hire to fit into a true sales mode type, the CRM will continue to be worthless as a sales tool.
