Engaging & Selling Your Lowest Hanging Fruit....The Customers in your Database.

Hello Fellow Car Guru's,



Well, here I am stepping out into the unknown. My first blog! I feel so strongly about the value I bring to dealers everyday, I wanted to talk about it. So...here goes !

"It's Time."

Hope this inspires you and your team: I wrote it for the CIADA Insider Magazine this month, and have gotten a lot of nice emails from people saying it has helped them. Wishing you all the best, Tobias.
