Why Multi-Channel Marketing is Vital to Your Success

Consumers today are increasingly becoming finicky about where and how they want to communicate. While the past may have seen a traditional print ad performing well on its own, that’s increasingly not the case.

The Half Brain That Sells Cars

Stop what you’re thinking – I am not casting a slur at the new green pea.

Rather, I’m talking about a selling strategy that leverages the left hemisphere or analytical side of the brain to improve the monthly sales tally.

The right side of the brain just doesn’t get it. Right-brained selling goes into panic at month end. It furiously telephones every potential be-back and lost sale from the prior 29 days. By this time, the sales desk has penciled so sharply there’s little left…

Sell Five Cars before Noon

The service drive is the new showroom! In a given day, more car-sales opportunities drive into your service lane than will walk through your traditional showroom doors.

Putting a dedicated sales associate equipped with the right knowledge in hand in the service drive can consistently close 30-35% of service drive customers. The best your showroom team does is selling about 20 percent.

Sometimes Keeping Your Strategy To Yourself Is A Good Strategy

Now that the focus in many industries is on data and behavioral marketing, marketing departments are increasingly better able to pinpoint areas in which they can improve. With the right data, not only can you determine your product’s demographic but now you can discover when and why your customers make that ultimate decision to purchase. That being said, just because you discover what’s wrong, that doesn’t necessarily mean you should share that nugget of wisdom with your consumer.…
