Why Do Salespeople Take Shortcuts?

Why Do Salespeople Take Shortcuts?

So, why do your salespeople take shortcuts? In the midst of this “softer sales cycle” it never ceases to amaze me, how a salesperson will wait for an “up” for the better part of a day…and when they finally get in front of a prospect, they rush through the process, by taking every possible shortcut…only to finish, without closing the deal so they can sit around, and wait, and wait, for the next prospect…so they can hurry through the entire… Continue

The Face of the Dealership

It has been about a month since I posted a blog. My last few have not been all that positive. I sell cars and it is very important to come to work with a positive attitude. Times seem to be tough right now. Stores are low on inventory and customers are few and far between. It is time to turn these negatives into positives. I will try to keep it short because I can go on all day about this subject.

Customers and their methods of shopping seem to be evolving so much faster then the… Continue

AutoStar SuperStore created to help disenfranchised dealers!

In June, George Lovato and Ken Zangara set out to do something to help the thousands of dealers who lost their franchise. Knowing that the closings left large footprints in our cities they realized that someone needed to do something. At that time AutoStar Dealer Network was born.

AutoStar Dealer Network provides dealers with another option when they are left without their flag. Rather than try to find another new car franchise or become an independent, why not join a network of… Continue

Being Fired for Being Honest.

In my last blog where I had mentioned that I found the F/I Mgr was stealing from the customer and was able to get owners to agree to fire him. The following Monday I was fired for doing the "right thing" I have been out of there almost a week. I thought it over for a while and came to the conclusion that I was working my way to getting rid of another individual who I felt was cheating. He had approached me and ask me "if he was next to be fired " apparently he has an in with the owners and had… Continue

Is this consider stealing,cheating, fraud etc..? PART 2

Hey Guys and Gals,

Thank you for all your input in this matter and I had made the determination of turning this guy in. I collected all the information needed to do so and gave it to the comptroller and then he investigated and went to the office manager. They were not really convinced that he had done anything wrong to my surprise but I felt that if they didn't go to the owners I would.

So they fired him and I felt that a great justice had been done even though I would… Continue

Goodbye Saturn!

I am for whatever reason surprised that this hasn't been posted yet! It's official, we're (Saturn) in the phase out process after Penske wasn't able to secure manufacturing. Any 2010 vehicle in-bound will be taken back, not available for retail. We have 12 months to perform warranty work on Saturns. It is what it is.. Many people think this should have happened years ago, but for me, it was fun.

I started as a salesman, grew into a top F&I producer and eventually a GM at one of… Continue
