Sometime in the 1890’s, marketing pioneer John Wanamaker coined the famous phrase, “Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don’t know which half.” Personally, I have always hated this phrase. My old boss and mentor would say it to me all of the time. However,…Continue

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.

"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…Continue

So you may be wondering why I am wishing all of you a Happy 4th of July. I can hear the comments..."We are just finishing up April". "Doesn't he mean Memorial Day"
No I do not. I mean are you planning for the cars you are selling only 9 weeks from now?
Dealers are so focused on the 30 day cycle that they forget…Continue

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…Continue
Last month I had the good fortune to attend 2 major digital automotive events, Digital Dealer 11 and PCG Pitstop. I guess I can consider myself somewhat a veteran of the show circuit seeing that I have attended half a dozen events in the past year alone so I thought I’d drop a few observations on both shows now that the dust has settled.
Digital Dealer 11 – Las Vegas – Oct 5th to 7th, 2011
I always look forward to this conference as I have…Continue

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.

The result, through the PODscore formula, gave you a very simple numerical value of how well they dominated page one in…Continue

I wanted to share some feedback I received from our Chicago Pitstop.
One of the dealers said to me that not only was the education some of the best he received, but the fact that he could bring multiple people from his dealership for less that the price of going to a larger conference was priceless.
His team was able to attend all 12 workshop session and he was so excited for the knowledge his team will be able to bring back to their dealership and impact production…Continue
