Co-Op Makes Us Stupid!

Advertising assistance from the OEMs, commonly referred to across various manufacturers as “co-op” when it is refunded by the OEM, can be a great help to dealers to offset advertising costs and achieve market share.  I won't say that what the OEMs deem as "co-op-able" is always the best choice for a dealer:  However,…
