Press Release Marketing on a Shoestring Budget

Auto dealers who are seeking to increase the visibility of their website on the Internet need to seek out a variety of tools to reach their target market. Some car dealers are starting to use a blog and participate in social networking websites but many seem to avoid regular monthly press releases. Press releases should be part of your Automotive SEO strategy.



Dealership staff has made comments to me that they feel a press release has to be… Continue

What Are You Paying Attention To? You...Or The Customer?

You know what? I can't blame you! Now days it so easy to just think about yourself and your needs when a customer comes through the door toward you. Things are so slow on the showroom floor, you might have to role play with a set of 22" chromes (but they might not talk back) or do a walk around with the receptionist! No matter what, you can't stop focusing on what is truly most important.



The customer, how you treat them, what they expect, what they're prepared for and everything to… Continue

Managing Used Car Inventory

Stocking only what sells in your dealership and using actual sales history to determine your fastest-moving

and highest-grossing units may seem obvious, but in my 20 Group travels I have seen many dealers running their

used-car businesses on nothing more than gut instincts and the personal preferences of a used-car manager.



These dealers share the same problems: 30 to 50 percent of their inventory is over 60 days, they have huge

wholesale losses, and their used-car… Continue

Is your Internet Department like a Bank?

Is your Internet Department like a Bank?



Is your Bank getting robbed??



Why is it dealers allow their Internet sales department to disregard valuable leads?



Ask yourself:

Do you know what the process is in your Internet department for each lead that comes in?



Is each and every lead being handled in a proper and timely manner?

Live By Process or Die By Process: A Message To Management

Dealers/General Managers and General Sales Managers, this is where the accountability starts: You and Process. I've not yet entered a store where the Internet business excelled despite management (ok, for more than one month). Heading into 2009, you must understand all of the fundamentals, be able to speak to the critical points with ease, know your vendors along with holding them accountable and stay up on what's happening in your store as well as outside.



The opportunity to hide… Continue

Are You Part Of The Problem...Or The Solution?

This is an agnostic question. You can be a dealership employee, a manager, a senior manager, general manager or dealer. The question is the same for everyone because it's important for accountability. Everyone has had to cut lately and it has hurt, likely a hell of a lot. Nobody in their right mind should tell you to do otherwise in any context.



Now, are you cutting too much? History will be able to tell you rather than you hearing it from me, your ad agency, another consultant, your… Continue

Fear is Your Great Indicator to Take Action

Fear is the great indicator that wealthy and successful people use as a sign that it is time to push through and get to the other side where their expansion lies. Unsuccessful people, who are assured to never have wealth or happiness stop every time they get afraid. All people experience fear, it is how you respond to it that ultimately makes the difference in your life.



Successful people are willing to push through, even when they are uncomfortable. Unsuccessful people use fear as… Continue
