ADM is a Professional Network, describe YOUR Value Proposition... "Why should anyone do business with you?"
15 years in automotive sales, the last 10 in e-commerce. I've managed several Internet Departments and BDCs, bith for single and multi-site dealerships. For the last 2 1/2-years, I've managed the ecomm efferets for the #1 Buick GMC store in Oklahoma. We've seen a 1100% increase in site traffic, year-over-year.
What will YOU contribute to the ADM Community?
I'm really big on gettting the phones to ring with inbound sales and service calls. We've moved the vast majority of our lead generation from email to phone calls. It's taken our dealership to the best sales months in the last 5 years. We are talking to humans, instead of leaving voice mails, text and emails. It makes for a busy day. Average inbound calls have grown to40-60 daily. Zero complaints from the sales staff about opportunities, just too many calls.
