From Not Making Enough Money To A Gold Mine…

Why are some salespeople afraid of learning more to sell more? After 5 years of bell to bell days, only selling 8 cars with not nearly enough money to pay the bills, when I thumbed through Zig Ziglar’s book, I saw a gold mine. I wasn’t afraid, I was excited. Here was the #1 salesperson …

Which is most important to make a sale – price or value?

Almost every salesperson is taught to focus on price, trade, down and the payments the customer is looking for when they’re out on the lot. Me, too, my first 5 years.

Create Mental Ownership

One of the most important things you can do in sales is to plant those positive seeds of them using the vehicle and them behind the wheel. The catch: You can’t talk about them using the new car or truck or being behind the wheel unless you dig in (investigate) to learn more about who …

No Manual When I Needed It!

I hadn’t used my drone lately and needed it for a video of my property. It’s off grid with no internet connection, so I couldn’t get to the manual on how to link to the controller. I wish I’d downloaded it sooner, so I’d had it when I needed it. I did that today! Download …

Crazy Question…

Seems like a crazy question, but do you actually want to make $100,000+ every year selling cars? With inventory shortages in the last 3 years, a lot of salespeople made $100K. It was easy when a vehicle finally came in and was guaranteed full price or higher. Most were bought – not sold. Yes, things …

Your Questioning Skills

Questions control your success in sales – not your product, your product knowledge, your location, inventory or your prices. It took me a year to buy 3 vehicles in 2022, in part because of inventory. When I was shopping, most salespeople were new, and didn’t know me or what I do, and 80% of the …

“No Be-Backs”

When I started selling cars, my managers kept saying ‘there’s no such thing as a be-back’ … so none of us did any follow up. Because I believed it, I spent 5 years doing almost zero follow up to get an unsold prospect back on the lot. And I spent zero time and effort trying …

Work on Commission…?

Why wouldn’t everyone on commission do something every month to improve? A lot of people in dead end jobs figure “What’s the point – no matter how hard I work or improve, I won’t earn more money.” For a lot, that’s very true. I’ve worked with other people in many ‘dead end’ jobs and I’m …
