Do You Have a Career or a Job?

Let It Rain

How long do you follow up with your Internet leads?  What about your inbound phone calls that you haven’t set appointments for?  You might answer these questions with numbers from 90 to 120.  15 to 30.  60 days.  Forever.  You answer this way because that is the process you built in your CRM.  Allow me to tell you that this isn’t happening.


There is one thing a CRM cannot do and that is stop your sales team from taking the easy way out.  (That takes management).  My team…

Automobile Industry - NOT the Most Hated!!

Notice the Automobile Industry finished out of the top 10... a good thing. Not surprising the Federal Government is at the top of the list. The Computer Industry and the Internet Industry received a lot of love - #1 and #3. Maybe if dealerships were more "Tech savvy" and "Digital" with how they did business or communicated, customers would like them more... hmmmm. Maybe I'll spend some time working on that idea.…

The Day the Internet Stood Still

Site Not Ranking Well? Check With Google

If you aren't happy with the way your dealership website is performing in terms of search engine results (and you aren't violating Google's webmaster guidelines), you can ask Google to "reconsider" your site.  Essentially, you can ask Google to take a look at your site to see if it was manually marked as spam.


Over the years, Google has improved this process to make it more transparent.  After submitting a site, Google will let the webmaster know that they received the…
