Online Reviews (Good & Bad) can help sell your vehicles…or Not

Today, more than ever, online reviews can make or break your month selling vehicles.  We can search for online reputation management companies and we will get hundreds if not thousands of opinions on how to manipulate the system of posting positive reviews.  Many of these companies state that they have a secret to help your dealership look like they are flawless.  This is done utilizing a lot of smoke and mirrors.

Studies by consumer behavior and search experts say that 7 out of 10…

If you are Having Fun Your Customers will too!

It is a simple matter of life.  People enjoy being around other people who are having fun!  Positive experiences are contagious.

This past Father’s Day weekend, I had the pleasure of watching my 10 year old son play in the Texas State 10U baseball tournament.  It was hot, the teams were tough, and we were at the baseball fields from 8 AM until 11 PM Saturday and Sunday.  The weekend was enjoyable and will be a Father’s Day I will always remember.  Some might think that it is because…

Creating an Automotive Buying Experience that Last a Lifetime

It has already been established that the most exciting time during the sales process is the delivery.  A perfect delivery can erase a debauched meet and greet, poor finance service, and the arduous negotiation over a couple of hundred dollars.  After spending hours with your customer, how do you want them to remember your dealership?

Your customer will remember your dealership every month they have to make their payment.  They will think of your dealership each time they pay for an…

Are you an Expert at Automotive Marketing and Strategic Planning?

Would you go on vacation without planning your means of travel, travel route, booking a hotel, identifying points of interest or activities for you and the family, and the starting time as well as the ending date of your trip?  Unless you were free spirited with no cares in the world, and were part of the Brady Bunch Family, this was not you.  As a matter of fact, since you are reading this blog, you are a “Type A” personality that rarely will walk out of your office without a…

Remember When You Bought Your First Car?

My first car which I purchased was a 1977 White 4-Speed Toyota Corolla.  It wasn’t the nicest looking vehicle anyone has ever seen.  As a matter of fact, it was what people today would call a “hoopty” or “jalopy”.  As soon as I made the purchase, I headed over to AutoZone to cover the steering column, replace the side mirrors, buy seat covers, and styled it up with the double windshield blades.  My taste in style has since changed.  It was ugly to say the least, but it was mine!

Are you Looking for the Next Big Idea?

So your automotive sales are down, and you lay awake at night praying that you make this month’s budget just so you do not have to put all of your possession in the provided cardboard box and take the walk of shame out of the dealership.  Does this sound familiar to you?

Anyone who has spent…

You have a Beautiful Dealership…Now what?

You have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to build or beautify your dealership.  Your advertising budget equals or exceeds that amount.  Your inventory has been posted online, and there are plenty of choices for potential customers to make a great selection.  CSI scores have never been higher at the dealership than they are right now!

So why are your salespeople standing around wondering why there are not any customers to sell a vehicle to?  Is there grumbling going on in the…

Marketing your Dealership 101

“You will not find a lower price on any models except OUR lot!!!”  Really?  Are consumers that naïve to believe that?  And you just spent $2,500 to produce this commercial and another $10,000 a month to run the spot over the course of 30 days.  Don’t even mention the fact that circumstances…
