The Opportunity

Do you agree…?
• Over half of all new and used car buyers use the Internet to do research before making a buying decision…And that number is on the rise? • Many of these customers have access to more product and price information than sales people do? • The sales person’s perceived lack of knowledge can reduce credibility and trust with customers? • The Internet informed customer brings new challenges that threaten profitability and CSI? • Some of the information these customers have is incorrect and this can hurt sales and profits? • Many sales people lack the training to handle these challenges without hurting sales, profits & CSI? • The Internet informed buyers who know more expect more from your dealership and may buy elsewhere if they do not get the experience they expect? • A strategy for preparing salespeople and managers to handle the challenges of selling to the Internet informed customer on the showroom and phone can boost sales, profit and CSI? • Dealerships who market their online dealership website will attract more customers than dealers who are not promoting their website? • If we confirm 100% of our appointments, we can double our show ratio and in turn that will double our sales and profits? • A large percent of customers do not respond because they are a month to 2 months away from buying their next vehicle? • If we follow-up with customers who do not respond or do not show up for their appointments, we can double our closing ratio? • A dealership with a trained and dedicated Internet Manager that who implements a clearly defined sales process will have 2 to 4 times better results than a part time Internet Manager?
