Operational Practices Drive Profits!

Posted on April 17, 2009 at 3:07pm 0 Comments

By Steven Risso

In 2006 NADA commissioned a firm named the Mckinsey Group to conduct a study with the objective of determining the critical success factors that drive superior business performance at automobile dealerships. We wanted to identify key internal activities and practices within the dealership that correlated to high performance. Also to assess the important external elements that leads to differences in performance. After surveying over 2000 dealers and general managers… Continue

Managing Used Car Inventory

and highest-grossing units may seem obvious, but in my 20 Group travels I have seen many dealers running their

used-car businesses on nothing more than gut instincts and the personal preferences of a used-car manager.

These dealers share the same problems: 30 to 50 percent of their inventory is over 60 days, they have huge

wholesale losses, and their used-car… Continue

I sold my Ford Dealership in 2005, but I still bleed blue!

I began selling cars in the early 80’s when things where rough for Ford. They where still licking their wounds from Pinto. Then along came a miracle, the Ford Taurus. That car turned our business around overnight! We couldn’t handle all the people. We had factory orders 50 deep at any given time, It was unbelievable.

It is great to see you here... I am working out of my home office as I recover from a bout with Pneumonia and hanging out on ADM seems to be very effective therapy!

On behalf of both myself, and the rest of the 1,600+ member ADM family, welcome to our online community and file sharing repository... We are very happy to see you have joined our community of automotive marketing and sales professionals.

Please take a moment to share some more information about yourself and your professional role. More information links, some blog postings with PPT, XLS, DOC and PDF files attached are particularly welcome. And of course we all love to see and listen to your music, photo and video uploads. I pay extra for additional server storage capacity for ADM and any valuable content you upload to make use of it is all appreciated.

Please note that you can upload documents into any blog post, forum discussion, group, comments and other sections for ADM members to download. There are already hundreds of PowerPoints, Excel Spreadsheets, Word Doc's, PDF files and more... We would be thrilled to get you to upload a few of yours to share with the community.

VERY IMPORTANT - All of us at ADM very much appreciate that you took the time to complete your profile section by uploading a photo of yourself. Most ADM members would like to put a face with your name and profile... Based on what i have seen since starting the ADM Professional Community at the beginning of 2008, I can promise you that you'll get more out of ADM when other members see that you have uploaded a profile photo!

I love seeing more and more automotive professionals and auto industry colleagues like yourself join the ADM community... When I checked the membership section a moment ago, I was pleasantly surprised to see that as of today, and thanks to your enrollment we are now up to over 1,600 automotive sales and marketing professionals who have joined the ADM Community... With help from automotive marketing professionals like yourself, we broke the 1,000 member mark on the 4th of July, 2008!

Amazing support from an amazing industry... Makes the aggravation of flying around the country with a guy sitting next to me who keeps sticking his elbow into my ribs, somehow worth it!

One of the greatest features that ADM provides is that you have full access to your very own blog web site within your personal profile section (here) of the ADM community. So feel free to get into the swing of things and use this website and the resources you get at no extra cost (because the ads here pay for them), as a means of sharing information, files, updates, proposals, photos, videos, etc.with your associates, customers, clients and friends!

Welcome! It is absolutely wonderful to have someone with your depth of experience join. I look forward to your input and insight.
Take a moment to review some of the forums and please post commentary on anything you would like, especially the older discussions as this would "recycle" them to the benefit of all.
Glad you are here!
