I was at a long-time Ford client last week, started working with them in September of 1997.  They are coming off of another great profit year, but January had started off a little slow.

Use Inventory Postings to Drive In-Market Customers to Facebook

Approximately 80% of dealerships have a social media program, with some dealers reporting great success. Others, not so much. Some dealership Facebook Pages have thousands of fans and are very active, while some have only a few fans and employees and post irregularly.

How Should We Play?



 

 

Stating the obvious, the car business -- like the sports we love – can be a hard-fought win. Winning means playing hard, playing smart and playing from a heart of greater discipline, commitment and expectation than the other guys do.

Whether in football or selling…

Be Afraid - Be Very Afraid!

What a year we've had.  There were ups and downs, but I'm so looking forward to next year.  I had the privilege of working with enough dealers to see an even bigger need for training in 2012.  But, my challenge is not that I see it, but getting dealers to see it as well.  As many in my industry know, the most common objection to training of any kind is that the dealer has it handled.  They just don't see a need.  In my opinion, many of them just don't see!
