New Goal Setting Calculator Helps Set Realistic, Achievable Goals

In keeping with the New Year’s tradition of setting goals for the future, Joe Verde Sales & Management Training, Inc., today announced that it has released a new online Goal Setting Calculator. The calculator can be used both by individual salespeople or the entire dealership to find their starting point in units and income, so they can set a realistic and achievable one-year improvement goal. It calculates the value of setting and reaching these goals and the benefit to the individual and the dealership in sales volume and extra income. Auto dealers are invited to visit: for this critical information.

“I think everyone wants to sell more and earn more, and most of us believe we’re setting goals correctly to achieve success. Unfortunately, that just isn’t the case 97 percent of the time. If you set a goal correctly, reaching it is a very straightforward process,” said Joe Verde, president of Joe Verde Sales & Management Training, Inc.

Famous for being the 8-car guy who transformed into the 38-car sales professional, Joe Verde, president of Joe Verde Sales & Management Training, Inc., is the author of five popular books for dealers, managers and salespeople. As well, Verde is a highly sought-after and dynamic Leadership, Management and Sales Training figure in the automotive industry. Joe Verde is also a leading innovator of virtual sales training. In 2003 he created the Joe Verde Training Network®, one of the first online training venues for auto dealers.

“As long as the goal is realistic and you’re willing to put in the effort to achieve it – no problem, you can increase your sales and income year after year. Problem … If you start off on the wrong track – that first misstep derails your goal and your long-term success. To set a clear, realistic and achievable sales goal, you need to delete the older history and calculate your ‘Current Average,’ which is your average of just your last 3 months,” Verde stated.

Verde encourages dealers and their salespeople to use this calculator to find their current average, and then to set realistic goals for units and income so they can reap the benefit to them and their families.

“There are no tricks, no smoke and mirrors. When you set a clear goal and have a clear plan and
are willing to go to work to work – the sky is your limit,” Verde added.
