In an article that I wrote several years ago (which you may wish to review at http://garryhouse.com/serv01.htm), I stated that “There are today, and there probably always will be, as many different compensation plans as there are dealerships.

Clearly Define Your Performance Expectations!

Right at the beginning of one of my consulting engagements in Dealership Compensation Planning and Implementation, I usually ask the client, “What are your expectations for this person (or position)?” And rarely is the client’s answer the one I’m seeking.So what do I wish that my client would answer? If the person (or position) in question is classified as non-management, I hope the client will respond with, “I expect this person to habitually perform and flawlessly execute those activities…See More

Will What Got You Here Get You There?

Earlier this month I listed my normal series of response questions when I’m asked, “What should I pay for (this position)?” Those questions focused on five areas…your competitive market, your organizational structure, your processes, your gross profit level, and your performance expectations. I also wrote about, and provided, compensation guidelines and discussed how they should be used in helping you determine what to pay…rather than how to pay!Unfortunately, the guidelines relate only to the…See More

Guidelines, PLEASE Give Us Guidelines!

As a Subject Matter Expert (SME) in Dealership Compensation Planning and Implementation, I am frequently asked, “What should I pay for (this position)?” And my answer is always the same…”it depends!”“On what?”…the group executive (or dealer principal, or general manager, or department manager) normally asks. To make my point that “there’s no easy answer” to that, I routinely ask at least five questions, not in any particular order of importance:How is the department organized?Does the…See More

Are Sales Pay Plans on Your Mind?

Posted on January 30, 2015 at 12:52pm 2 Comments

A majority of us in the dealership consulting community, together with many client-dealers to whom we provide services, have long recognized a need for changes in salesperson compensation plans. The traditional plans which have been employed over the last several decades no longer effectively match the operating strategies being implemented in many dealerships today, particularly in those stores that are committed to “market-based pricing” their new and used vehicles on the Internet.

It’s Your Choice to Change!

Posted on January 9, 2015 at 11:54am 0 Comments

On December 31st, noted marketing consultant Dan Kennedy published an article titled “Change is a Matter of Choice.” He began his message by stating that now is the time when millions of people make utterly empty New Year’s resolutions. He went on to say, “the truth is, most are empty of resolve all year long,” and although I hate saying it, this phenomenon is far more prevalent than it should be within our great community of retail automobile dealers.
