Toyota Dealer Endorses One-Price Sales Sales Staff Writes Deals and Finalizes with a Menu Presentation!

transaction at their desks and include the menu presentation without sending

any customer into “the box” is heart-stopping for them. What about banning the

F&I office altogether?…

Harnessing The “Human” Mindset

The all elusive holy grail of marketing is within our grasp but most fail to truly understand its power to both create and destroy. It is both the bringer of life and of death but if used correctly can push your sales to new heights… but if only.

Digital Due Diligence

Before the internet, when there were only phone pops, we learned valuable lessons on how to handle calls, such as selling the appointment, creating urgency, not giving shopping numbers and keeping information close to the vest until the customer showed up. It was good advice then and it may be good advice now. But keep in mind that many customer inquiries tend to come online rather then by phone. While the ultimate goal remains the same – to get the customer into the dealership – the rules for… Continue

WOMENCERTIFIED~SUSAN HAIR 561-309-7078~Communication

Contrary to popular belief, women’s communication styles aren’t impossible to decode. Some tips:

•If she says she needs to think about it, she means it. Be sure to give her all the information and literature she needs to make an informed decision, and let her know when you’ll be available to answer any questions.

•Tangents, though seemingly irrelevant, are often full of information that matters to her at that moment. Don’t tune out; listen for bits of info that clue you in to her… Continue

Client Development

Client Development can be the single most important difference between a sales person who makes $35,000/yr and a top pro that makes $75,000 to $100,000+. Do you want to double your income? Wait for it……. Talk to twice as many people! It’s no great revelation! If you talk to 10 clients for the week and sell 3, then if you want to sell 6 you have to talk to 20 clients’ right??(Nod head now) The numbers are always the numbers, and the numbers are always right.

Get "What You Expect" when you Crunch Your Service Numbers

“What You Expect”

(This is a follow on blog post from a previous post titled “Crunching Your Service Numbers.”)

This is part of the daily “Must Do” list for every Service Manager. You cannot go through the day without checking progress. To do so would be a sure recipe for disaster. Just ask the Captain on any ship or the Pilot of any airplane. They will not start the engines without a plan much less leave the harbor or take off from the airport.

As a Service… Continue
