Retention, Loyalty or Acquisition Marketing?

We all want new customers. And it’s certainly mandatory to retain a customer to create a loyal one. But how we market our dealerships is increasingly important -- as each form of marketing will deliver different results. The three terms: loyalty, retention and acquisition marketing, all have their own distinct meanings and should…See More

When Will I See You Again?

When will I see you again? No, I am not talking about the 70’s pop song, although the lyrics just may fit the content here. I am talking about the continued trend in customer defections from our dealerships.  Customer’s defect for many reasons and the longer an individual owns a car, the harder it can be to keep that customer.

It’s All a Matter of Perspective

When did you last walk through the customer entrance of your dealership and look at what is truly being experienced by the customer? Forget for a moment whether a sales consultant’s work area is messy, or if there are smudges on the windows. Let’s look a little closer at what a customer could see, hear or feel when they interact…See More

What’s in Your Wallet?

A couple generations ago, if you didn’t carry cash on your person, perhaps a personal check was accepted at your favorite store.  Then credit cards became an option, followed quickly by debit cards.  And now, with technology changing seemingly overnight, two new payment options are becoming available to consumers at…See More

The Mind is Like a Parachute – It Works Best When Open

Competition in business is usually a good thing.  Sure, we’d all like to have the market cornered, but without a little competition we would perhaps never figure out ways to improve our products or services and keep our customers coming back.  In an interesting…See More

"Great post, Mike! I especially like the advice about being creative when developing owner loyalty programs... With so many resources and the importance that cars have to most people, we should be getting creative when it comes to these programs. "

Going Beyond All-You-Can-Eat In Loyalty

When consumers think of loyalty programs, they typically think of racking up miles, or frequenting a business in exchange for rewards, perks or freebies.No matter what business you patronize, there is a good chance that it is offering some sort of loyalty incentive. In fact, many argue that loyalty programs are so prevalent…See More

Less Complaints Don’t Always Equal Increased Customer Satisfaction

It sounds backwards, at first, but when was the last time you asked your customers for a complaint or some constructive criticism?  If you’re like most dealerships, you’re doing everything you can to avoid complaints and negative reviews.
