This is an excerpt from my book "Synergistic Selling"

Avoiding Slumps

Every sales manager, every owner, and every salesperson selling anything in the world will, at some point, cross paths with the dreaded slumps. These slumps are mentally and economically taxing. They can also be taxing on your family. And they can be difficult to crawl out of.

Usually, you will encounter a slump pretty early. And you…

Lead count down? Try this little trick and watch the lead count grow.

As I travel from dealership to dealership I often encounter the same issues. This one is a recurring theme.

Many dealers allow their BDC manager or e-commerce director to place any phone number of their liking on the ads, websites and other e-commerce streams. Maybe the vendor told them it was best to advertise a different number for "tracking" purposes. Perhaps the BDC manager feels they need to "protect" their ability to prove the fruits of their labor. Perhaps…

Selling in the Greatest

Time of All

Last month, I had my very first Uber ride. I was doing some training in Little Rock, Arkansas, and that evening, a friend booked me an Uber ride to take me back to my hotel after a social gathering.

In a matter of minutes, a gentleman in a Prius pulled up. We exchanged pleasantries, and he told me about his job. He described himself as a tech nerd, and his job was making apps for cellular…

Prevent, avoid, and escape from the dreaded sales slump.



There’s a 100% chance of meeting face to face with the dreaded slump at some point in your sales career. It’s highly likely you will face a slump many times over. A mini slump, a prolonged slump, any slump can have brutal implications in an environment where people notoriously earn above average incomes yet live check to…

You have an excellent - deep - understanding of both the sellers -  and buyers - who do not understand each other  - or themselves - as well as they need to. 

I always consider the 'known unknowns' speech as the platform for this.

People know what they know  - and they may know what they need to know that is unknown    --- but the hard one is the unknown  unknowns.

Greetings my friend,  I appreciated your comment about my response to your "trial close" post.  While I'd long passed the desire to "sales train" by the time I began selling vehicles, I had a lot of experience doing it when I sold high dollar organs and pianos, and they're fundamentally the same, except selling them is like selling cars to people who can't drive.  My interest during my 8+ years in auto sales was in maximizing repeat & referral business utilizing the techniques I'd previously developed, and I shunned any attempts to "get into dealer management" I was regularly offered.  (I'll leave that to guys like you.)  I moved thru domestics to, what was then, the biggest M-B dealership in the country, and then on to Lexus where the dealer coaxed me into doing my marketing for everyone in their dealership.  Not complaining, though, as it put me in business doing it for others over 20 years ago.

I read your bio before ever responding to the post, but your website appeared to be only the Fletcher Group site.  Hope you'll read my bio and visit my site.
