The rural equipment market is growing rapidly and dealerships need to constantly adapt to this evolving customer segment.
In this edition of our Rural Lifestyle Dealer podcast series brought to you by Yanmar, we bring you the first installment of a new series, "Managing the Store" by Mike Wiles.
Mike has been in the retail and wholesale equipment business for over 20 years. He’s the host of AskTractorMike.com, a site that educates new tractor customers, and co-owns EDMforSales, which develops websites for dealers.
Mike Wiles looks at trends that dealers need to take advantage of, especially the idea of building communities, focusing on teaching and problem solving and developing in-house mentors.
This summer, Mike Wiles will be one of the many dealership marketing experts speaking at the 2018 Dealership Minds Summit, hosted by our sister publication, Farm Equipment. View the full lineup of speakers and session topics that will be featured July 24-25, 2018 at this limited seating dealers-only networking and idea-sharing event. Learn more here.
