For Used Vehicle Acquisition, There’s No Place Like Home

One of the pain points I frequently hear from dealers is how to acquire frontline pre-owned vehicles for their stores.

Not Wrong, but Different

Inevitably, pricing is a necessary aspect to a customer’s decision. They do their research online and expect to receive answers to their pricing questions.

Be Your Dealership's Fishing Guide for Digital Success

Be Your Dealership's Fishing Guide for Digital Success

I wish I had a dollar for every corny fishing analogy used when talking about customers in our business. Ok, so I wouldn’t be rich, but I’d have, like, seven dollars. But who can resist a blog with cute kids in the picture?

Pay attention.

I recently took a fantastic striper fishing trip at Lake Texoma with my two boys, Cooper and Carter. I decided to hire a fishing guide for a couple of reasons..one, more fish..two, my A.D.D. kicks in pretty quick when having…
