From time to time something will still surprise me. This happened last week in Long island. I received a phone call from the dealer to meet to discuss a BDC. One of his friends had refered my company to him. I agreed to meet him. I pulled up to the dealer, nice store with good display and a Used car lot.
Once inside it was like the 80s in decor. One of the sales guys greets me and I tell him I'm there to see the owner. He gets him and we go into his office and talk for about an hour.…Continue

Communities, we are all a part of one, whether it be the community within our local area, the one with family and friends, or our online communities, they all play a vast role in who we are and what we wish to accomplish, in life and in business.
It’s no secret that humans are…Continue
While the other sales people at my dealership were freezing, chasing fresh ups outside on the blacktop, I was warm and cozy, tucked away in my office - glasses first into my MacBook building my personal brand. It's not that I don't enjoy following customers around in the cold at a 20% closing ratio, it's more so that I wanted to focus on customer loyalty and presenting myself to the general public in a manner that would bring them directly to me…without all of the chasing that…Continue
Humans are competitive by nature. Throughout history, as a species, we’ve been competing in one way or another whether that’s with each other or nature. So it came as no surprise to us when one of our clients – Princeton Mini – approached us and said that they “had to” win a regional OEM contest being held in conjunction with a national sales event, and enlisted our assistance.
The “Not So Normal” sales event held by Mini was designed to advertise the exceptionally…Continue

The best tools in the world are only as good as their user. Similarly, loyalty programs are only as good as your employees make them. The best loyalty program in the world still requires staff buy-in to make it work. If a current program isn’t working, dealers should take a closer look at their culture and create strategies to develop a positive work environment and motivated employees. Here’s how to get started:
1) Find out what’s important to your…Continue

In one sentence, the advice that business owners and marketers need to hear is this: “Everything on your Facebook page should be centered around the real world.”
No, I don’t mean the reality TV show that launched it all in 1992. When The Real World launched on MTV 27 seasons ago (yes, it’s still going strong in case you weren’t aware), it set in motion a genre of television that many people claim to hate but…Continue

Following is this week's used car market report from Black Book managing editor, Ricky Beggs, also available by viewing the weekly video segment. As we attended the auctions, and talked with many dealers and also looked at the commentary from the Black Book survey personnel, there were three main topics of interest that kept coming up, and these are not in any particular order, a strong market, the current tax…Continue

Every now & then I get asked these two questions. Do I use cue-cards and also how do you shoot a decent video in windy conditions?
In regards to cue-cards the answer is no.......... just a lot of practice! - lol! It does take time to get/feel comfortable in front of the camera and it`s definitely not for everyone.
Now as for "How do we shoot decent videos on windy days?"........ the first thing to remember is that you`re not making "Gone With the…Continue
