CBC - A Vendor You Can Trust

Jim Ziglar recently posted the question - How many Vendors is YOUR DEALERSHIP Paying who are Selling your Customer Data to Other Vendors for Cash?

Dealership Defensive Game Plan For The New Year

HR Spring Cleaning

by Kathryn Carlson

March is a great time to “spring clean” your personnel files.  It isn’t fun but it is necessary if an employer wants to ensure compliance with record retention regulations.  Annual “spring cleaning” or audit also provides an opportunity to correct any issues prior to an external audit by the government or as part of a lawsuit!  Organized and compliant personnel files will improve the overall efficiency of the department-nobody likes searching for…

This practice is similar if not exactly the same. You are leveraging negative comments about your competitor left by other people (who you are representing as real - we all know fake reviews exist) to your positive…
