The Doughnut Tire Process

Today I had the opportunity to speak to the General Manager of a large dealer group about his conversion pains. He told me that he’s figured out how to get the leads that he needed, but he just doesn't have the right resources in place to convert them. By resources, he was referring to sales staff. I’m a big fan of having a solid lead-handling process down. Quick response times, providing the customer with what they've requested, and spending time…

Exemplary investment found when assessing features of Toyota vehicle

Buyers today are more and more concerned with getting the most value for their dollars, and this certainly extends to car ownership and new vehicle purchases. With the personal needs and professional taboos galore, zeroing in on a vehicle requires additional information to be availed. This goes beyond the actual sticker price of the automobile, and carries into the cost to operate, fuel, maintain, and repair the vehicle as well. Some may be concerned also by the emissions and impact that…

They’re e-mail-blasting sales messages, sending direct mail, and their salespeople are combing over thousands of client records in their DMS, making phone calls to previous customers and orphan owners. The problem is that many dealers don’t realize that, all too often, those messages fall on deaf ears. Dealerships spend tons of money sending messages to customers that are mostly irrelevant because some vendor promised huge results…

Edmunds.com Belittles a Dealer’s Intelligence for the Second Time Around (Only Worse)

edmunds2 I am not sure the folks at Edmunds.com would want you to remember, but most dealers still recall back in October the advertisement Edmunds launched on YouTube, entitled “Absurdity of Haggling” which, with no disguise, belittled car dealers by showing a grocery clerk trying to gouge shoppers on items such as bread and squash.  Dealers quickly recognized this and tagged it in social and conventional industry media, and, after…
