True Car and ZAG - Cyber Bandits or Good for the Business?

Jim Ziegler asks...

I am hearing a lot of discussion about True Car and ZAG.  I continually scratch my head and wonder if  desperate dealers are doing the marketing limbo "How Low Can You Go?" 

Are we so bad at what we do that we have to line up and pay…

5 Smart Shopping Tips

You may be surprised to know that the biggest mistake you can make when shopping is to shop the 'best' or 'lowest' priced products. That's right! Buyers mistakingly use price to drive their buying decisions - this is referred to as the price myth and retailers have used the lowest price hook for years to drive traffic to their stores and websites. The single biggest shopping mistake a consumer can make is to base the decision to shop or buy solely on price and I should know as I have… Continue

Are internet customers wasting your time, or are you wasting theirs?

I still see and hear this from many dealers. Internet customers are just a waste of time, kicking tires. Really? The fact is that 90% of today’s car buyers have been on the ‘net prior to their purchase.



Customers are often classified as walk-ins by salespeople who don’t take the time to ask the customer the right questions. Are they really walk-ins, or did they research the vehicle on a 3rd-party site or the dealers very own site? New vehicle customers have a different buying cycle… Continue

Both sides of RedNumbat

There are two components of RedNumbat. There is the RedNumbat.com website, that lets the dealer list unlimited new and pre-owned inventory, without a price difference. From RedNumbat.com they can search a price on any vehicle, in less than four clicks they can have a price on a vehicle. Then there is the link on the website. The purpose of this link is not to compete with the dealers personalized email response, this should never go away. RedNumbat will facilitate this process. The majority of… Continue

Giving the customer what they want a very simple concept

As many of you know by now I sell cars. I have been selling for six years. I worked the internet for a small dealer as well as a large one. The internet customer is a fascinating study for sure. The internet customer is like any other some research for a Month. Some read all of the third party research. Others just want confirmation that a car is available. In the end all customers have one thing in common. They want a price.

The internet aspect of car sales is still its infancy. There are… Continue

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.



Unless you are Wal-Mart or the Dollar Store that have entire business models built around very small margins and high volumes, the lowest price model will… Continue

If My Ads Won't Bring Them, Santa Will (and other misguided beliefs)

If the auto industry is living on one thing right now, it's hope. Not that hope isn't good, quite the opposite. But if your plan to drive traffic, sales and retention is based on the hope that people will see your ad, or that people will stop right off the freeway because your sign is there, please stop and think again.



Recently I was at a client, talking with a "non-Internet" salesperson. This person was complaining about the prospect of taking web leads since they were 'already… Continue
