Just What Does a Car Salesman DO, Anyway?

From the Series: Car Salesman ConfidentialOne thing I knew, back before the editors of Motor Trend were kind enough to allow me to do this blog, was that if “Car Salesman Confidential” was to be a success it could not be a monologue. It had to be a dialogue. A dialogue between salespeople and ‘civilians.’ It couldn’t be a place where a salesman sat on a pedestal, pontificating about his…See More

'Distracted driving' at an all-time high; new approaches needed, experts say

Young, inexperienced drivers have always gotten into more automobile accidents, but if you add in a lot of distractions, it's a recipe for disaster -- and a new Pacific Northwest research program is learning more about these risks while identifying approaches that may help reduce them.Distractions have been an issue since the age of the Model T, whether a driver was eating a sandwich or talking to a passenger. But the advent of cell phones, text messaging and heavy urban traffic has taken those…See More

Do We Secretly Hate Our Customers? (a tongue-in-cheek view of automotive sales)

The other day I was sitting around talking with a friend in the car business, an older gentleman who has been in finance and insurance (F&I) since the invention of the automobile (I think he may actually have been in the horse & carriage business before that), and completely out of the blue he asked me a question I could not answer.“Why do we show such disdain for the people who feed us?”By “the people who feed us,” he meant the customers. The ones who buy the cars. They’re the ones who…See More

In regards to posting protocol:

1. If you want discussion and ideas exchanged, feedback, etc. post using the ADM Forum...

2. If you want to share your ideas, strategies, best practices, a story, dealer experience, management philosophy amnd are more interested in getting your message out, rather than feedback and discussion, use the ADM Blog feature.

3. No Anonymity = No Censorship (On ADM you MUST disclose your true identity, but your opinions and statements will not be censored, unless porn or personal attacks in nature)

4. If you want to post a sales pitch, be prepared for very negative comments. We do not reward members who delete comments posted by others... Alternately, you can post a blog and not have it open for comments.
