Need advice on getting better online

I have always approached the internet with the thought that the companies I am working with (those doing my SEO, SEM, website, etc.) are doing everything the right way so I leave it in their hands. Now as I am starting to look at things more I begin to wonder am I spending my money the right way, how do I know that they are buying the right keywords, am I missing things that I shouldn't? As I think about these things I realize I do not know near enough about having a great presence online. This…See More

David Simpson replied to John Roberts's discussion Non-commission pay plans for salespeople
"A pay plan is a job description, so I like Brian's question; "What are you trying to accomplish?"   Admittedly, I am a "mad scientist" when it comes to pay plans, and there is more than one way to have a pay plan that…"

Brian Bennington replied to John Roberts's discussion Non-commission pay plans for salespeople
"So, if this is all about getting young people on board, I'd say "forget it."  Let the big dealer groups "pioneer" this.  Otherwise, you're headed for genuine heartbreak, and you best remember if a Millennial…"

"Brian, I have never been one to scimp on paying my salespeople, I have always felt if my salespeople make a lot of money, the dealership did too. I personally have been on commission for the last 28 years, and do believe that true salespeople want…"

Non-commission pay plans for salespeople

Just about every article I read today talks about how the younger generation is averse to working in a position that has commission based pay. I have looked around and have not been able to find a pay plan that I feel properly addresses this need. Does anyone out there have a non-commission pay plan for salespeople that you feel has been successful at helping to recruit the younger generation into car sales, but does not break the bank? I need to keep my commission percentages in line with…See More

ELEAD ONE vs. VinSolutions or a better option

We are currently with VinSolutions for our CRM and are seriously considering a change. I have been scouring the internet looking for feedback, but I am not finding a lot of information. I have had a demo and a lot of discussions with ELEAD and it looks like a good alternative, but thought I would start a discussion to see what the dealers out there think. See More
