I wonder what most dealers and managers feelings are on Data Base mailings.  What type offer do you give?  How often do you do it?  What are your typical results?  Do you feel it is important to be…Continue

Sell Like it was Yesterday

Sell Like It Was Yesterday


I have loved the automobile business since the day I sold my first car in 1987.  I remember collecting that commission check, as an 18 year old kid, who was in shock and awe that someone would pay me that kind of money to do something that I loved.  It was a simple time; look out the window, make sure you never miss an up, do the walk around, the demo drive, the service walk and make sure if you cannot…


How I can Prove Direct Mail still has the best ROI

How I can prove Direct Mail is still the strongest advertising ROI there is in the Auto Business BAR NONE!

A short back story: 

I started in the car business back in 1987 as a young kid who wanted to learn all I could about this business. One thing I caught on to quickly was that whenever we had a “Mailer” sale going on, I wanted…


Do something

A long time ago I read a book called "Death by Meeting" it was a great book written by Patrick Lencione.  Although the book was filed with great concepts and ideas, I remember taking away one thing from it; Don't meeting yourself to death. Instead, actually go do something. 

I teach everyone around me to actually ask themselves in any down time of the day at all "What should or could I be doing now".   Have the one minute manager meetings, get the heck out of them and go put…


Don't commit Digital Suicide

Don't commit digital Suicide.   

Sitting in a few conferences over the past few weeks, I have been able to confirm my suspicions.  There are many dealers and vendors that think tradition media is dead.  They are on the road of committing digital suicide for dealers all over the country.  If you are lucky enough not to be infected by this yet, you will be able to dominate your market easier than ever.  I should mention…

Hi Troy - Apologies not trying to hijack your post. I thought it helpful to back up your point with real numbers from the field happening today. As you know dealers want results now and direct mail attached to an event is the most effective way to make it happen. I agree lets connect offline shoot me your contact info and Ill touch base with you during the week.
