Sometimes you should say what you will not do to make a sale

I will never forget selling vehicles online in the 80's.  After three years, I had my own advertising, my own customer base, my own phone pops, set my own hours, and got paid on everything.  Although most of my inquiries began online or with a phone call, I had the highest gross average in the store.


People and the Road to Dealership Profitability

Your People are the Lynchpins of Your Dealership

Leaving the most crucial aspect of your business for last was not by accident. Your people are the lynchpins of your dealership. You can focus on product and process all day, but people make or break the success of your business.

Who's Bad? The Coach or The Players?

One (bad) habit I have every single morning is to check Fox Sports News the moment my feet are on the floor… For a sports fanatic like me, it’s a priority to check in with the overnight Premier League and Champions League scores.

Barcelona getting done 4-0 to PSG! What the!

And yesterday, Arsenal getting done 5-1 to Bayern! That’s insane!

As I was reading the report of the Arsenal game, I came…

FCA's plan to add stores riles dealers

Fiat Chrysler's plan to add about 380 dealerships to its U.S. network of around 2,500 stores has run into opposition from dealers who say the move is a threat to their existing businesses.

Some have complained to state authorities, two citing a proposed FCA store in the New Orleans suburb of Kenner, La., that would be built on a vacant lot hemmed in by a massive swamp on one side and Lake Pontchartrain on another. The problem, local dealers say, is that three…

The Good Life: How to Find the Perfect Luxury Car

One of the main perks of life is driving a luxury car, which can make a long commute more enjoyable and will allow you to have a boost of confidence. Luxury cars are known for their innovative features and sleek design, making for a fun mode of transportation. When you want to find the perfect luxury car, you'll need to take a few steps that will prove to be effective. Test Drive Different Models One of the best ways to get a feel for the right luxury car that you'll enjoy long-term is to test drive different the latest models. Getting behind the wheel and determining how smooth the road feels while driving in the car will allow you to determine how comfortable you feel. Visit a location like Audi Brooklyn where you can discuss the features and controls of each model with an expert. You can also test out the turning radius and how fast the horse speed is by driving on the highway or side streets. Read Reviews Look up reviews of different car models to get an understanding of their performance and safety ratings. The reports that you find will make it easier to determine if it's a quality car that other drivers are happy owning. You can also compare the fuel efficiency of the vehicle to other cars and how long the particular model is expected to last before it begins having issues that can develop. Research the Features Knowing the different features that you want with your next car will make it easier to narrow down your options. You may want to have a seat massager or a steering wheel warmer. Some luxury cars include granite trim, and others come with wool floor mats. Know what's available to ensure that you can feel pampered with the purchase. Consider Your Needs It's important that the luxury vehicle accommodates your needs and lifestyle to ensure that it's functional and convenient to drive. You may need a car that can seat your large family, which may lead you to purchase an SUV. Other drivers may want a car that is fuel efficient to save gas on their commute to work each day. When you want to find the perfect luxury car, you can enjoy a smooth and fun process by taking the right steps. You'll not only make the right purchase but can show off the car on the road while getting a taste of the good life.See More

Shopping for a New Ride? 4 Mistakes You Don't Want to Make

Having a new car is fun and exciting, but the process of buying one is not. It can be a very stressful and unpleasant experience, and it can be made worse if you make a mistake and wind up paying too much or getting a car you don't really want. Here are four mistakes you don't want to make when shopping for a new car.Not Checking Out Financing Options Ahead of TimeMost car dealerships, especially new ones, offer financing programs for those who buy cars, but dealer financing is not always the best deal. To make sure you get the best interest rate possible on a loan, check out financing before going to the dealership. Apply to get pre-approved at a bank or credit union. That way, you know whether what the dealership is offering is a good deal or not.Don’t Fail to Do Your ResearchIt goes without saying that you should research the car you are buying, but you also want to research the dealer as well. Do online searches to see what people are saying about the car and the dealer on ratings sites and social media. Talk to friends and family who own that type of car and have done their homework. If the car or the dealer has a bad reputation, go look somewhere else.Look AroundIt's easy to get tunnel vision when buying a car. If you have your heart set on a certain model, such as a Nissan, it can be hard to consider others. But even if you are set on one car, it's important to visit more than one dealer, because even dealerships selling the same brand of car can have slightly different deals. Some companies, like Bay Ridge Nissan, know that if you live in a big city, this shouldn't be a problem. If you live in a smaller city, you might have to travel to another city to visit a dealer.PaymentsMost people finance at least part of their car purchase and they often get fixated on what the monthly payment will be rather than what the actual cost of the car is. Doing so can mean you don't get as good of a deal. Try to be flexible on what your payment number is to get the best deal on a car.These are just a few of the most-common car-buying mistakes. Avoiding these will help your buying process go more smoothly and help you get the best deal on your new car.See More
