CRM Best Practices for Salespeople

Posted on August 14, 2013 at 11:19am 0 Comments

Sales people and sales managers are the heavy users of CRM.  While the definition of best practices for each type of user is highly debatable I want to get feed back from the regulars here at ADM.

Follow Up on Milestones after the Sale to Keep 'em Coming Back

Posted on June 26, 2013 at 10:25am 1 Comment

It may sound mundane and even foolish to publish this article.  However, after the sale follow up is where the real money is made, in both sales and service.  We all know that.  If we keep our customers coming back and speaking well of us then everybody in the equation wins.

Here are some tips on keeping customers engaged after the sale:

Thanks for the support Paul, I have always admired you for your openness and candor and I hate to be a squeaky wheel. But I just feel strongly about companies that only look to sell dealers, not sell cars. Everything we do is based on helping dealers sell more cars, we sell more websites by doing so. Every since BZ left the market, I felt like we had finally leveled the playing field and were all competing with the same general spirit and goals. Obviously, I can't let it bother me so much, right?

Thanks again Paul, always appreciate the industry expertise.

Hello Paul,

If you have some time in the next few days, I'd be interested in speaking to you by phone. There are a handful of items that have peaked my interest by virtue of reading some of your posts. My direct line is 913.645.1732. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello Paul,

If you feel that a Vendor may contribute to your panel, I would be happy to serve. I have been marketing, selling, training and doing Account Management to the Automotive Dealership marketplace for the past 7 years including having secured a national agreement with Sonic Automotive (NYSE) during my tenure at Callbright Corporation (The Reynolds Companies)

Please let me know your thoughts and I thank you.
