My recent vehicle puchase...If you want to sell more product or service...quit focusing on the sale

Posted on February 19, 2013 at 1:05pm 0 Comments

Recently I purchased a YUKON for my wife. I dealt directly with the DP & FI guys. Great experience overall...considering?

No 'Thank you note', no 'Service or Parts Reminder's', no Coupons or discount's for anything? Absolutely nothing for follow up. Instead of focusing on the sale; shouldn't we focus on the relatonship? IMHO!

I love being a techno geek now!

When computers first started making their way in the 80's, I abolished it, including my college days during floppy discs. Then came "The Worldwide Web' Still in retail mid-20's and still the youngest selling Bick/Isuzu as NCM, still blown off. I moved all the Buicks to the back & drove all the Rodeo's & Trooper's up to the front....guess what? That's right, it worked...what a miracle. Tired of being tapped on the head like a little boy, I left! I did govt. work, counted beans, all…

Hi Bill!

Thanks for reaching out. I must apologize for not accepting your friend request sooner. I spend a minimal amount of time on these sites. I just pop on every once in a while when a discussion is interesting. I should pay more attention to my connection requests.

I must admit I had to google the Life of Reilly. I got that it was a 50's sitcom where Reilly gets himself in predicaments that miraculously work out in the end. Anyway I guess that would apply to Greg ;-). I hope you are doing well.

Take care,
