“From ‘service’ to ‘sales’ with 200 units my first 8 months.” “Joe, I’ve been in the car business for over 24 years and recently made the switch from the service side to the sales side. I knew a lot about cars, but selling them was a whole different process and I was lucky that my …

Asking Questions…

Ask Joe: Why is asking questions so important? Because “Telling Isn’t Selling”Pros don’t tell their way to a sale, they ask their way to the sale.

What Works Best for a Walkaround…?

Ask Joe: Why should a 6-Point Walkaround be a ‘Targeted’ 2 or 3-Point Walkaround instead? I was a judge at a walkaround contest held by the manufacturer. The best product sales experts from every region were there. They came on stage with the vehicles they’d present and the crowds roared (OK, no roar, but they …

Will You Sell More?

The ‘choice’ most salespeople ignore. Success, and more success, is dependent on a person’s motivation, desire, determination, and the self-discipline they apply to make it happen. (And SHAC of course.) In my first 5 years, 95% of us were stuck at 8 – 12 units, but there’s always someone you hear about who sells more. …

When every deal is a mini…

Ask Joe: “I can’t make $$$ – every deal is a mini!” If you’re getting lots of minis, it’s either because you’re only selling small units with zip for gross to begin with, or because you’re holding a price dropping auction on each vehicle you show people. Some dealers run big price ads, put a …

My response would have included the same things we hear from salespeople today who were never trained, or worse, were trained on the same sales prevention skills and techniques I learned my first …

It’s About Options…

Selling from inventory is all about showing them options! The dictionary defines an ‘option’ as something that’s “not compulsory, it’s a choice you can make”. That’s why I keep referring to who, how, why and what. Who is this vehicle for? How will they be using it? Why are they getting it? What are their …
