Invitation Only - RSVP IMMEDIATELY

What if there was a way to increase deliveries by 20% without spending tens of thousands on advertising, staffed events, mailers, etc.?  Suppose these sales would be simpler, at higher grosses, and totally controlled by the dealership?  And, unlike any other marketing service, what if you could prove the value of the service by tracking deliveries and gross and comparing it to your current methods?  Now, imagine being able to do this 24/7 from anywhere in the world.How does this work?That's the…See More

WHAT IF THIS WORKS

I am writing this from the airport in Manchester, NH as I head back to Wilmington, NC.  Hurricane Sandy has left her mark on the North Carolina Coast and is heading north for what forecasters think will be a huge event.  I'll be glad if I just make it home today.       Many of the homes up here are equipped with back up generators to handle loss of power issues.  Stores were selling out of extra water and batteries as folks prepared for the worst.  I think we can all agree this is just being…See More

"Nice job, John!  My three "P's" are People, Processes, and Percentages!  (Sounds like an automotive accountant, right?)  Choose your p's and stick with it, exercising traits of consistency and accountability! "

Are You Surrounded?

 I don't know about you but I'm a sucker for classic westerns.  Even though about 10 minutes into the movie, you can pretty much figure it out, I always enjoy the "old west" from Hollywood's perspective.  It was a simpler time.  Or was it?      Back then, at least in the movies, there was always a point when the good guys were surrounded.  It always looked like there was no way out.  Or, as the cliche goes, "It looks like the end of the line."  Yet, seemingly out of nowhere a solution seemed to…See More

OH PLEASE - NOT THAT!!!

There is a statement we've all heard over the years in the car business.  It usually comes from the dealer or a senior manager.  When I hear it, it makes me crazy.  Now, I know that some of you will say that driving me crazy is a short trip, but this one makes me glad that I'm not on a roof when I hear it.  I might jump.     It usually happens when I'm talking to a dealer.  We may be discussing a hiring campaign, an idea for advertising, a specific sales practice or even a way to cut costs in…See More

Warm Bodies Are Not Enough

Part of our marketing is to monitor help wanted ads for sales people.  I've seen some that should be very effective, but far too many are less than acceptable.  The only way to describe them is pure laziness.  The only other possibility is that the dealer is still running the sales department on "The Warm Body Theory."  That's where dealers who are stuck in the 1980's still believe that if they keep hiring warm bodies, eventually they'll end up with some "natural" sales talent. Unfortunately,…See More
