Dealership Mobile Apps: Hype or Substance?

Certain technologies lend themselves really well to mobile application use. Consumers download millions of mobile apps related to gaming, weather, social networking, navigation, travel, restaurants and other forms of entertainment.

But when it comes to business, and dealerships in particular, the market for mobile apps is a little more uncertain. Not all business applications lend themselves well to mobile apps use. For instance, in our business we use a contact management software.…

Act As If...

Do you know the one thing that happens before 100% of the closes salespeople succeed at?  If you discover that secret, you'll see an increase in your own closing ratio, or in your ability to drive your sales staff to repeating successful months over and over.  The real beauty is, once you discover the secret, you have it.  It becomes yours to use any time you need it.

 

This powerful secret will also work to help you improve yourself, increase your skills and develop your team…

Follow Me - I'm Right Behind You

Last week I was busy leading a class of new salespeople through our 21st Century Sales Program(c) and as with all of my classes, one or two students always emerge as leaders but, not always the ones you'd think.  There are the ones who are eager to participate, but they aren't necessarily the leaders.  Others seem to know the answers to all the questions, but that may not mean leadership.

 

The ones that stand out are often in the background.  But, if you recognize them, you…

Who Would You Take A Bullet For?

That's a tough question.  It can put many people on the spot and get others thinking, perhaps to reeavluate life's priorities.  Maybe, as we end the week, this is a bit to tough a topic even for those who participate.  For those of us who served in the military, the answer is as simple as we do it for our country.  Now that we're civilians, perhaps the answer changed.  At this point in my life, the list is short - My father and mother, my son and daughter, my two brothers, and my best friend…

Every Challenge Has Three Choices

Isn't life funny?  Things happen all around us.  Sometimes you pay attention and somethings should be ignored.  But, as the old saying goes, life isn't about what happens to us, it's about what we do when something happens.  As a member of this planet for over 55 years, I've come to the conclusion that there are just 3 choices to everything in life.  While some of you may think I'm over simplifying, take a few minutes to finish this article and see what I mean.

Hiring Mistakes Dealers Make When Looking For Sales People

 

Let's be honest, placing ads for hiring sales people is the least fun thing to do in the business.  You have to design it, place it and then wait.  And, since your primary role is to sell, service, and deliver vehicles, your creativity just isn't into this.  You never know when an interview will show…

Stop Whining About Price

Price cutting is a self-inflicted wound. Nobody holds a gun to your head and makes you cut your price. I know that many of you are thinking right now: "There is so much competition today that you can't maintain profits," "Everybody is giving everything away," "The salespeople can't negotiate," and "Everybody knows our pricing from the Internet..." Blah, Blah, Blah. Stop whining about price!

 

Only about ten percent of buyers buy on price alone. For that ten percent, you can…

The Generational Gap: I Won’t Buy From You if You’re Not on Facebook

As a Gen-Yer, I grew up in an era where everyone received a trophy in Little League, your parents escorted you from basketball practice to piano lessons to your Math tutor, and I can barely remember a world without the Internet.

 

In other words, I’m used to having the world at my fingertips, and along with the rest of my generation.

Take Control of your Facebook Places

If you use Facebook with any regularity, I’m sure you’ve seen the rising popularity of Facebook Places, used it yourself, and seen your friends check-in information as well.  If you haven’t noticed this yet, Facebook Places allows users to  "check-in" through their mobile phones, letting their friends (and businesses) know where they are.  It's designed to compete with Foursquare, a similar location-based social network. …
