Does Your Culture Need a Makeover?

Recent discussions I’ve had with potential clients suggest that one of the biggest road blocks to maximizing retail automotive success is the dealership (or department) culture. I decided it was again an opportune time to tackle this thorny issue. “Culture” can be defined as the shared values and practices of the company’s (or department’s) employees, and it’s important because it can make or break your dealership. Business cultures change over time, primarily as a result of employees leaving…See More

When adding the word “quality” to “vehicle sales personnel”, the dealers’ claims of staffing success turn pretty ugly. Why is it so difficult to attract quality people for automotive sales positions?Several years ago, I was working with a client in Southern California and conducting one of my rare sales training meetings.

At the Sonic Automotive Dealer Academy in 2003, we began using, as a teaching tool, an article titled, “Simple Techniques to Grow Your Business.” This article was authored by Duane “D.J.” Sprague who, at the time, was the president of Dunning Sprague Marketing & Advertising, a full service agency specialized in generating and retaining customers for the retail automotive dealer.

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.

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.
