Are You Following Nissan's Lead in Social Media Use?

A topic I have been speaking about recently is how to interact with your customer base. From marketing your reviews on site, to creating a well thought out "wall of Fame" showing your community interaction, awards, videos etc. I also emphasized the need to interact with your Social Media followers.

Share Your Customer Feedback

I was struck by the simplicity of a sign in a hospital cafeteria the other day that said,

“You asked, we listened. Here are changes to our menu based on the spring survey. Keep your feedback coming.” I loved that.

The climate has shifted over the past two years where businesses are…

Still not Getting Reviews?

I opened up the latest Automotive News over breakfast today and noticed a teaser for an article inside. 

"Warning: Ratings Count for Shoppers".  Of course after teaching Reputation management and customer service workshops for the last 2 years in the automotive industry I am always drawn to this type of article.

Well before I get to what the article said, I…

Wow a Real Voice. It Freaked Me Out.

I was calling the other day to set up some travel and when I dialed I got a real voice versus an IVR. The funny thing was, I checked to make sure I dialed the right number.

 

Now how funny is that. We are so accustomed to getting a recording (you have reached...) or a support line,…

Look at your Dealership through the Eyes of your Customers

As we continue our conversation about Zero Moment of Truth, where customers research you and your products online, let’s not forget what the First Moment of Truth is: When people contact your dealership.

I want to focus on what happens when customers get on site and how what happens can affect the sale. To explain my point, at a recent workshop I posed this question to readers: “ What are some things that customers saw upon coming to a dealership that negatively affected their…

Driving Sales Event Set the Bar HIGH!!!!

Sitting here after Driving Sales Executive Summit, reviewing my notes and thoughts about this event. First, all who did not take the time to come, you missed out. Not just on a great location, not just on the networking but on the incredibly high level of education. 

What Jared and his team accomplished was to set the bar very high for other conferences to come in the automotive space. He not only got great educators and speakers from the industry, he reached out and got speakers who…

Focusing on your PODScore and help understand ZMOT

About a year ago, PCG Digital Marketing coined a term PODScore to help businesses understand how much “brand leakage” happened in a simple search for their name online. (you can find more about PODscore at www.podscore.org) We had a business type their company name into search and then count the number of listings they controlled. The result, through the PODscore formula, gave you a very simple numerical value of how well they dominated page one in…

Dealers Discuss Implementing Reputation Management Strategies

I just held a follow up webinar to my workshop at the Automotive Marketing Boot Camp on Reputation Management. I waited for a few weeks to see what dealers who attended would implement and how their progress was going. I wanted to share results from three people because it covers a lot of situations you may run into.…

Quick Fixes Don't Stick

I was sitting up the other night flipping the channels and just was amazed at the amount of infomercials I have seen on how we can change quickly or how we can revolutionize our life with a certain product, I just laugh and then it made me mad.

Now I have been one of those people who are fascinated by these claims, but I have also been in the coaching and training field for over 20 years and been in a position of managing others for close to 30. (No my photo is…

Examine any successful dealership’s business module and you will find a great manager there turning each goal into reality. A great manager understands how to take hold of a company’s vision and translate it into processes and procedures that will accelerate their staff to the top.

How is your Communication Bridge at your Dealership?



Have you ever been in your dealership where you have to explain to someone what he or she needs to do? They look at you and you see them nodding, but you are not sure they “get” what you mean.



From their perspective, the commentary in their head is saying,

” I hope he does not ask me what they just said. I have no idea what he means and I don’t want to look stupid or lose my job. Go away, go away, go away”.…

Which Way are you Facing?



I ran across a post on Facebook from a friend of mine, VJ Voelker and he was posing the question of why car dealers are looking backwards versus forwards in regards to their marketing. He was curious as to why dealers were hesitant to embrace Digital Marketing as a viable addition to their current media. Bottom line he was asking, why is it so hard to change?



It got me… Continue

Will this new employee help me or hurt me?

As a manager of a sales team or a team of supervisors, there will be a time when you need to bring a new member to the team. You have cut the pile of candidates and resumes down to the final few.



What criteria should you follow when you pick up the phone and call someone to offer the job?



A lot is going to depend on the makeup of your team. BUT more importantly, it will also depend on how you RUN your team. Are you a hands-on and structured supervisor, do you deliver… Continue

Does training sit at the kid's table in your dealership?

Lately, I’ve been going to a lot of events. I just hit my 3rd in two weeks. At each event there are breakout sessions and roundtables to discuss relevant issues to business.



I’ve been in sessions about Social Media, Workforce Management, CRM Tools, Inventory Control, Cloud Computing, Service Departments, Vendor Management and about 10 other topics. But not one table dedicated to training.



Okay, so maybe one event skipping management training is okay,…
