FMLA: Defining Sons and Daughters

When deciding if FMLA is the appropriate leave, employers should consider the interpretation of “son“ or “daughter” issued by the Department of Labor under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).  The Administrator’s interpretation gives employees, who care for a child, parental rights to family leave regardless of the legal or biological relationship. The “son” or “daughter” being defined is under Section 101(12) of the FMLA as it applies to an employee standing “in loco parentis” to a…See More

Lead Follow Up Best Practices

Posted on August 3, 2014 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

Answering a lead doesn’t have to be rocket science. Sometimes we overthink situations where the best solution is usually the simplest. When it comes to lead follow up, dealerships should follow these three best practices, and the metrics attached to them.

Response Time - 30 minutes or less:

We all know that a timely response is important for leads, but how many dealerships are tracking this consistently? Following up with a lead should start with a quick response. To track…


What are the Best KPI Metrics to Track from Leads to Set Appointments?

Posted on August 2, 2014 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

Tracking leads is the first step to managing your lead process. When a GM says, “Why is my closing percentage low!?”, I don’t start with how many deals we closed; I start with how many leads we received. Lead numbers are your starting point and should be your cleanest source of data.

Begin by scrubbing and removing false leads from your lead list and then go into how many of those leads you made contact with: this is called the contact rate. You should hit about 70% or higher of your…


What is the best subject line to maximize an open rate?

Posted on July 31, 2014 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

Personalization is the key. If you are blanketing the masses with the latest vehicle incentives, then you may have a hard time personalizing the message. However, if you are operating at a high-level of email proficiency, you are most likely sending smaller, targeted email blasts instead of the mass blasts from the past.
