I’ve written and spoken extensively about accountability in the twenty years since we started our company, Learn To Lead: how to do it, why it’s important, the consequences for not doing so, and more. In my recent How to Master the Art of Accountability seminar attendees found it helpful when I identified and outlined the two non-negotiable pillars of accountability, and how to develop both.

Essentially, holding people accountable requires both the right skill set and the…

Understanding the Importance of a Car Accident Lawyer – Why You Should Hire One

Driving a vehicle provides you with a sense of freedom and convenience. It allows you to get around without having to rely on anyone else or a public transportation system. For many people, it is a necessity in order to get to and from work, get the kids to school and their various events, and just make life a whole lot easier. With that said, driving a car is not without its risks. As the roads get more and more congested, it’s only normal to assume at some point or another that you will end up in a fender bender, even if it’s relatively minor and without any major injuries.Royalty Free PhotoOf course, being in an accident isn’t something most people think about until it happens to them, and then they are left floundering as they deal with medical expenses, working with their insurance company, and possibly another party (the other driver involved). This is exactly why it’s so important to obtain the services of a car accident lawyer.Not convinced a car accident lawyer is needed? Let’s take a closer look at exactly what they do and how they can help you through this unfortunate time.What Kind of Accident Claims Can a Car Accident Lawyer Help With?While you may see the significance in hiring car accident lawyers for the big and major accidents, it’s important to realize it’s not just big accidents where they can be of crucial assistance. In fact, car accident lawyers are well versed in a large variety of accidents – both big and small.Some of the typical cases they deal with are T-bone collisions, head-on collisions, rear-end accidents, drunk driving or speeding accidents, left-turn collisions, stop sign or red-light accidents, talking and texting on a mobile device related incidents, and many others.What Specifically Can the Car Accident Lawyer Help You With?To put it simply, a car accident lawyer is able to fight for their client, which is you, and ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve. This could mean compensation for your medical expenses which can grow quite quickly, lost wages due to your inability to work right after the accident, as well as pain and suffering that you may be going through.While some accidents may only result in health issues that last a few days or weeks, others can span into years, and even permanently. Most people aren’t prepared to deal with that kind of reality both from a financial and emotional stand-point. A car accident lawyer is sensitive to what their client is going through, as well as what they will need going forward as far as compensation goes.Then there is the fact they get how the process works. They have experience working with insurance companies, other lawyers, reading police reports, etc. It is their job to go to bat for you while you focus on recovering.So rather than take on the stress of the paperwork and details, and risk not getting the compensation you deserve simply because you don’t know the process, it’s wise to leave it in the hands of a capable car insurance lawyer.See More

A Lesson in Successful Marketing from Rytec High Performance Doors

When your key product has such a wide range of benefits, marketing can become a challenge. Not that a great product is more difficult to sell, but because a diverse customer base means a diverse range of needs, these segments must often be addressed in different ways. Even if your product would help the customer in question, how are they supposed to figure that out if you’re pitching them on benefits that don’t apply to their needs?If there’s one company that excels in this area of marketing, it’s Rytec High Performance Doors. But how? While at first glance, a high-performance door might strike you as a product without much variation, where one door is as good as the next, no matter the industry. With a wide range of quality products, Rytec has proven just how much more a door can be, and have created a specificity in their marketing that addresses the diverse needs of their growing customer base.Their customers in the auto dealership industry, for instance, recognize the benefits of a door that makes a great first impression and contains a “wow” factor. A responsive automatic door that opens and closes quickly creates the image of professionalism and tech-forwardness that dealerships want to convey. Not to mention that the speed of the door allows cars to move fluidly between areas while keeping employees and customers in a comfortable environment. In this example, Watkins thoughtfully leverages an auto dealership customer to provide testimony of Rytec’s value to prospective dealerships.Watkins shifts this angle for residential high-rise buildings where residents park their vehicles. Security is their priority. In this market he emphasizes the strength and safety of the doors. Watkins also understands how owners of large buildings have numerous tenants with busy schedules. They’re not happy if they must wait in a line to enter or exit their building. In this example, a customer’s building facility management highlights the safety, security, aesthetic, and speed of Rytec doors.While these first examples might make Rytec doors seem like a simple commercial-use door company, their market segments extend into industries like restaurants, offering doors that look great, function smoothly, are easy to maintain and provide customers with ample natural light. In this example, Watkins features a hip pizza restaurant customer talking about how Rytec doors enhance their atmosphere.Take a moment to look at your customers. See how they use your product or service. Ideally, they demonstrate your value proposition in a video your prospects can easily understand and identify with. Media272’s WinWinVideo program provides your customer with three free videos in exchange for your video testimonial. The three free videos quickly convert busy customers into eager participants. These videos are shot on location, through Media272’s national network of videographers.If you’d like to learn more, please follow this link, or call 800.272.7222 and mention this article.See More

Value and Values

We’re known for knowing the value of advertising, and through the years, we’ve become very familiar with our values. Value and Values. Two different things. Local Search Group’s values do much more than establish the monetary worth of something. Our Values--summed up in the 7 C’s below--help govern our thoughts and beliefs-- and these are values that any organization or dealership can adopt to improve their dealership’s efficiency as well as their company culture. CommunicationAs an agency we communicate on behalf of our clients to consumers. It’s the most important thing we do. ChangeThe world moves quickly. Google, Facebook and other technologies move exceedingly faster than the automotive industry does. What are we doing to keep up without changing for change’s sake? Coat of the ArmadilloThick skin applies just as much to digital strategies as it does to communicating in real-time, whether that be with managers, colleagues or consumers. The car business can be stressful. Good interpersonal relationship skills are imperative to maintaining happy employees and customers.   ConsistencyLook for the repeatability of an event and a way to improve the event in the future. One of the most watched events, the Super Bowl, contains elements of consistency from our perspective. Each year there’s a host city; there’s a halftime performer, and there’s two teams that play. Sure those things might be different--but the process for the NFL remains the same. CompetitionIt’s a   out there. How do we recognize our environment and gain an edge for our dealer clients? ClientsFocus first and foremost on customers. Respond quickly. Be the “now” part of a “now” business and be results driven. CharityThe largest generation of current consumers choose businesses that support what is important to them. What is your dealership doing to “give back?” Our charity of choice is the SPCA. At the dealership we can spend so much time working on the value of the products and services  we provide that we can lose sight of our values. Knowing both will help you hire, attract and retain more of the right employees to help you take care of your customers.See More
