Where the women are strong, the men are good-looking and every child is above-average.

Yesterday's NYT has an article about the state of online reviews that is particularly topical for our industry.

It's been about a month since Google placed new emphasis on their own members' reviews in search engine results and relegated the…

Facebook Allows For Zip Code Targeting

Until now, Facebook has allowed advertisers on their platform to target users based on age, sex, interests and location (country, state, and city).  In order to drill down even further, Facebook now allows users to target their ads by zip code as well.

 

When creating your Facebook ad, just add the zip codes that you would like to target.  Unlike Google AdWords, you can't use a radius to target further, so make sure that you are including any zip codes from which your…

Why I don't like Groupon or LIKE services

I have to preface this by letting you know that it is illegal in Illinois (my State) to use coupons in automotive sales.  But then again, coupons are available for Service and Parts.  So why would I not like Groupon for Service and Parts, and I suppose for Sales in States that allow it?

First, I see you deeply discounting something and then paying part of the leftovers to Groupon in order to bring in new customers, hoping to either upsell them or make them future customers.  Here's…

3 Step Improvement Plan

Let’s explore a simple 3-step approach that will help improve any dealership department.

1. What am I doing now?

Do you clearly understand the road to revenue or process flow from origination to transacting business?

For example, are customers handled the same way every time by every salesperson? How detailed is that instruction? Is every phone call answered the same way? Are the sales techniques the same for everyone interacting with customers? (Note, I’m not…

Gender Pendulum

I am finding that this industry, probably like most, is very fickle.

 

When I first started I had a lot to overcome being a woman in a male dominated industry. I'd show up to a store work on a computer and be asked where's the tech, only to be met with a look of disapproval when I let them know I was there to fix their Rey Rey issue. Have been in a Dealer Principal's on a sales call to be looked over and asked contract questions to the field tech I had with me. I had to learn…

No Traffic on the Extra Mile

Now, we’re all familiar with the line, “There’s no business like show business.” Well, I wouldn’t personally know if that’s true or not, but I can say from firsthand experience that there is no business like the car business — not just for the controversy and characters, but for the triumphs as well.

In the car business, you have a group of people that range from the dealer principal to the lot attendant, who earns a living and gets some satisfaction from a job well done. On the sales…

Huge News Fall Out and the Boy Who Cried Wolf

Before class started on one peaceful Saturday morning, my yoga instructor made this big announcement with much fanfare that there was some huge event coming to our studio.  There were no additional details as to what the event was, when it might occur, etc.  Just a stay tuned teaser.  I was so excited that I could barely focus during class wondering what this event was, when it was going…
