Are you building value during your presentation/demonstration?

  In the automotive industry we must learn the difference between building value versus just giving the car away.  We've all seen the sales professional that sells 15 cars for the month and makes $1,500 i.e. 15 mini deals.  How demotivating to spend an entire month putting in 60+ hours and then see a less than average paycheck; I truly believe the solution to this problem is one must learn how to build value and hold gross while your presenting your four square.  I've heard too many people…

How many phone calls can and should your internet department make?



Here’s a question I hear a lot at my Internet Sales 20 Groups: “How many phone calls should my department make per day?”

This question is huge, because simply dialing the phone can dramatically change the outcome of your dealership’s Internet Sales. Your Dealership’s Internet Department and BDC are, after all, a numbers game. Let me break it down for you:





  • The more people you dial, the more people you get on the phone.
  • The more people you get…

The Power of the Follow Up

As I mystery shop automotive dealers on a weekly basis, I am amazed at the lack of follow up phone skills that are still out there.  Even more, I am amazed at the lack of follow up attempts that most Internet and BDC departments have.  This is either lack of training, lack of…

Building and maintaining relationships is different today

Help Yourself First. So You Can Help Others Better.

Here at Xspond we have spent oodles and oodles of time improving our partners social media, and our partners web sites, and our partners data bases, and our partners… (you get the picture).

If I Sold Cars Today - How Would I Do It Differently

The last year that I sold cars, before starting a BDC, was 2003. While 7 years doesn't seem like that long it was a lifetime in technology, and if I had to do it all over again I'd do it the same way. What?

LOWER PRICE + LOWER VOLUMES IS FORMULA FOR DISASTER by Grant Cardone

Price is always a very sensitive issue, especially during times of contraction, when money is tight, consumers are scared and more selective with their money. The first response (incorrectly) is to reduce price in order to make up for less volume. It is a myth that a lower price will sell your product and a formula for disaster.
