Where's The Beef

A couple of hours ago, I made note of a photo that Brian Pasch posted of empty shelves at his local grocery store.  That photo reminded me that I’d meant to cover a back-to- the-basics concept that I struggled with while doing some research last week.

First off, let me tell you that I LOVE CARS.  I have loved cars since I was able to grasp the concept of motoring.  I love how cars feel when you run your hand over their cool painted metal, I love how expensive leather interior feels –…

Campaign Promises

For grins, and to help me get started with this post, I Googled “Customer Expectations”. 

Of the 13,900,000 returned results, a link to an interview with Richard Branson stuck out because, well, he’s fabulous AND he’s someone who has apparently figured out how to do a lot of things right.  Sir Branson says: “Pricing your product or service is only one way to exceed expectations.

By Autumn 2003, I had (a meager) seven years of Internet Automotive success under my belt.  I was managing a nine-franchise Internet Sales Department that encompassed five rooftops in Portland OR and Vancouver WA.  New Car sales were really starting to get brutal.  Every other conversation contained…

"It's All Good": The Return of Spi-Fi

I remember sitting in my office at Robberson Ford two years ago. It was a beautiful day not unlike today, clear but cold. I was having a terrible conversation with a gentleman who had submitted an inquiry on a pre-owned vehicle. He’d been a mortgage broker for the previous 25 years, and, like so many of the real estate affiliated customers I’d been talking to then, he’d fallen on hard times. His story was pretty sad.

My Vote For Video

What would you rather do?

A. perform at a higher level (ie: close more deals or generate more gross profit) from your current opportunities to do business.

SEO Jokes

SEOs are safe from the threat of automation taking over their professions. No one would build a robot to do nothing.
