In Marketing, Make Sure You Partner with the Best

For decades, advertising enjoyed a fairly predictable business. Print, radio, and TV coalesced into a three-pronged approach that was mastered after decades of relative stability. Simply put, if a vendor demonstrated expertise, then clients willingly trusted them, generation after generation. Then the Internet happened.

This CRM SUCKS!!!!

“This CRM Sucks!”, is a statement that I’ve heard many sales people and sales managers say many times. Too many times this statement is the fallback statement for someone who just doesn’t know how to use the CRM properly. CRMs only do what we tell them to do. By themselves, standing alone, they will suck. However, when we set them up right, include the proper action plans, business rules, marketing campaigns and follow up processes they are extremely valuable! In…

Sharing Is Caring

The obvious goal of marketing and sales is increasing revenue. They are so closely intertwined it often surprises me that in many cases sales staff are not taught about the complexity, cost and how to benefit from marketing efforts of their employers.

Third party car shopping sites and the convenience of mobile as well as video content has virtually everyone seeking…

Recent history has demonstrated in business it’s no longer so much a matter of the big eating the small, but the swift eating the slow. Obviously, this dynamic puts the careers of those content to wait for things to change on a leadership endangered species list. You know what I mean—those content to wait for:

• A better product: “Once the ‘X’ or ‘Y’ model gets here we’ll be rocking.”

• A…

Plugging Holes in the Service Bucket

We are in a new era; one in which dealers make most of their money on the service side and not in new vehicle sales. Yet, as an industry we still spend far more money marketing the sales side of the business, and on conquest marketing, than we do on service marketing and customer retention.
