Best Practices of Elite Dealerships Volume 3 is a comprehensive, foundational guide that will help you take a fresh look at your sales, parts and service departments. It is simple, straightforward and actionable. In fact, this eGuide is designed to help you…

  • Understand how to build a strategic plan that’s more than just words on paper.
  • Create excitement about your dealership and the products you sell.
  • Learn how to upsell service offerings to boost revenue and increase customer satisfaction.
  • Improve the approaches you take in the parts department so you don’t lose those critical sales and stop wasting time.
  • Start your team on a path of recognizing how to build revenue and increase efficiencies in an industry that’s experiencing high growth right now.

You may say you’re too busy to read an eGuide. But we both know the risks of not paying attention to both the details and the “big picture” when running a dealership and you and your employees deserve the best decisions. Creating and maintaining an efficient and progressive dealership is compulsory to survival. Consider this:

  • The rural lifestyle segment is growing and new technologies are capturing the attention of buyers. Do you have programs in place to take advantage of these opportunities?
  • Processes that waste time cost money, but more than that, they keep you from making money. Making incremental changes, starting today, can help you be more profitable.
  • What your dealership looks like tomorrow may be vastly different than what it looks like today. Do you know how to evaluate what success looks like for you?

The dealer in this eGuide has tackled those issues and set a clear path for longevity.

We know time is money. But if you did nothing more than scan the Dealer Takeaways in this FREE eGuide, you’d be significantly ahead.

  • How can I make my retail displays look more attractive and encourage purchases?
  • What is the best approach to the latest in online marketing?
