Be Afraid - Be Very Afraid!

What a year we've had.  There were ups and downs, but I'm so looking forward to next year.  I had the privilege of working with enough dealers to see an even bigger need for training in 2012.  But, my challenge is not that I see it, but getting dealers to see it as well.  As many in my industry know, the most common objection to training of any kind is that the dealer has it handled.  They just don't see a need.  In my opinion, many of them just don't see!

For example:  Follow-up. …

We all have one week of work before 2011 becomes a collection of files to be stored away.  Sure, we'll go back and get some things for this years taxes.  Perhaps even take a look at some trends that occurred during the year.  But what are the things that will make 2012 a better year for you?  Chances are, there will be talk of improvement, higher numbers, better grosses, and maybe even a reduction in expenses.  But, it will all fade before the Christmas decorations are taken down.

While the majority of my time is now spent trianing new salespeople, I still get to work with experienced teams on occassion.  I enjoy this break, especially during this time of year.  It's always easy to get new people to set high goals becasue they're still excited about their new career and want to make a great impression.  Getting veterans to set goals is more like trying to get a college student to be done with a major paper BEFORE the night before!

As an expert in human personal…

Auto Dealers: Get Your Inventory Into the Hands Of Everyone!

As an automobile dealer, you know how to advertise. You know that commercials can be effective sometimes, and banners as well as flyers can get people interested to the point where they actually stop by. You even have a website but some people have said that they are unsure of how to navigate it. They also said that it takes them forever to find your inventory of vehicles, or when they do find it, it may load a little slower than they expect. In other words, they are telling that they need…

Just Saying Thanks

Even trainers have days when the message is not about how to sell a car or increase gross.  There are plenty of things much more important than that.  While the passion for training is what drives my colleagues as well as myself, today is different.  Monday morning I will be in a dealership helping hire and train, but today is a day to step back and acknowledge those who contribute so much more.

As a veteran who served as Viet Nam was winding down, I am so much happier at the respect…

Dealers double-down on trick advertising by Chris Justice

 

A lot of Car Dealers have graduated from "sleight of hand" advertising to full blown false advertising.



In the mist of shrinking sales and declining revenue, some dealers have forgone tomorrow’s business for today’s floor traffic.



In what appear to be a price war one would believe this to be a great time for customers to find great deals. Although this may be true, many would-be customers are being manipulated by deals that are too good…
