We all know that today's economic hardships have made maintaining a career in cars quite an obstacle. With that being said, there is always something, we, the people working in the car business can change or do to better ourselves. The economy is always going to change, so we need to change how we work with people, how we communicate and how we sell the product. We need to keep training and looking for new ways to become more successful. There is no such thing as being… Continue

I was browsing through the website of a prominent dealer-chasing law firm this morning (I know, I have weird hobbies), and came across a posting about a dealer with a link to a YouTube video. This dealership is part of a good-sized group that is very well-regarded in the area. As I am personally acquainted with this dealer group, I can attest to their integrity and dedication to customer satisfaction. So, when I clicked on the YouTube link, I expected to see another unconvincing customer with a… Continue

The number one area that your Customers would like you to improve in is… Communicating with your Customers.
Most of you reading this would say “We do communicate with our Customers all the time! We call them; we send them emails…why we even have a monthly newsletter that we send out. What more could they possibly want?”

This morning, I woke up to probably the most frightening thing that could ever happen. There was a mouse in my room at the house I'm currently living in with two roommates.
Even writing that sentence gives me hives and I'm so close to doing one of those Hollywood screams with real tears.
I quickly made a phone call to my father, (yes, a girl in her late 20's still calls her dad when there's a problem), and insisted that he come and help me pack a bag to satisfy me for an… Continue

Anyone else kind of slugging through the day? It's Monday in the East Coast (well, everywhere, I suppose), and it's hot. I'd like to be at the beach sipping on Gatorade and reading a raunchy novel. But, it's a work day for me.
5 years ago to the day, I was sitting in my cubicle, going through thousands of leads and sending them in for credit to our lead source vendors. 5 years ago, I was a manager/operations director of a BDC in New Jersey. The powers that be also… Continue

I was traveling recently when I noticed a young man standing in the same line as me for the San Diego flight. Like many of you traveling and spending a lot of time in airports, I become a "people watcher" to pass the time.
As I have "aged" (a kind word for getting old) I find myself watching younger people, especially the kids. I think that children, who are mostly excited to be traveling and filled with boundless and seemingly endless amounts of energy, are the most fun to watch.… Continue

The strategic contribution of individual employees can and should be measured. Why? Too often, companies invest heavily in articulating their Mission, Vision, and Values, but stop short of clarifying and clearly communicating how each employee can play a roll. A company’s employees execute that company’s Mission, Vision, and Values on a daily basis by virtue of their daily activities. Those activities are the strategy…and ultimately enable the company to realize its Mission, Vision, and… Continue

To train -- or not to train -- is not the question according to automotive advertising agencies who understand the importance of investing in the people part of the sales and service process by providing training before, during and after the sale. Training has often been considered as an afterthought by auto dealers who have enjoyed the luxury of having more customers than cars with a never… Continue

As a veteran of the Automobile business I understand the pressure on Managers to deliver on every up that visits the property. Some Dealers say each up or opportunity has a cost of about $350 in marketing expense. I certainly remember some of those opportunities, desking the loss leader first thing Saturday morning.
I also understand, from 10 + years of Internet marketing, dealers I have worked for are spending as much as 15K monthly to pay for leads. Those leads are also… Continue

Good morning to all.
This morning I was remembering the sales meeting I would have with my "troops" at the beginning of every month.
Since last month is over and it is so easy to say "i'm tired", "no one comes in after the close of the month", we do two thirds of our business in Continue

It's been a while since I published some "how to" articles on link building and Automotive SEO strategies. Many people have said that that "Content is King" and I would like to append to that adage "and links are the Queen". Car dealers who would like to increase the number incoming links to their primary domains can read further to see if any of my suggestions are new ideas. If so, add them to your digital marketing strategy to increase the search… Continue
