Jeffrey Seyler replied to I.C. Collins ll's discussion Five Signs You Work For A Weak Manager

" Steve, My apologies if I am coming across disrespectful to you and the work you do, I must admit I have deep rooted beliefs regarding the differences between a BDC/Call Center and an Internet Department as well as a Retail Sales Person and an…"

Jeffrey Seyler commented on Big Tom LaPointe's blog post Playing 'hide the salami' with your live chat will kill car deals

Jeffrey Seyler commented on Big Tom LaPointe's blog post Playing 'hide the salami' with your live chat will kill car deals
"Great post Tom! The "Live Chat" dialog should be nothing more, nothing less, than a conversation that builds report, identifies needs and secures an appointment to finalize an intended purchase. Skipping around questions as given in this…"

Jeffrey Seyler replied to Mike Elliott's discussion Are Salespeople Born Competitive?
"BRAVO! With all of all the data collected (amusing as it all is), the only factor that truly matters in the success or failure of a Sales Person in a pure selling environment is summed up in your last paragraph; the Leadership of the Sales Manager.…"

Jeffrey Seyler commented on Alan Ram's blog post Persistence Wears Down Resistance
"Sound advice, I do think you are giving the other 10% way too much credit as well as the number of long term follow performed by sales persons is less than 5%. Following up with your sold customers is your reward for a job well done. The easiest way…"

Jeffrey Seyler replied to Jackie Cahill's discussion Cars sold from your Internet Department

Jeffrey Seyler commented on Mr. Natural's blog post In the future, Dogs will work car deals.
"The dog also knows a bad guy when he sees and smells one, like when the hair on the back of his neck stand up. "Transparency" is just another word for perception in the auto industry, and perceptions rule weather they are reality or not.…"

Jeffrey Seyler commented on Sally Whitesell's blog post Are You a Coach or a Critic?

Jeffrey Seyler replied to John Armstrong's discussion How do I get my sales team better at getting the Internet customer to engage or even email or call back ?
