The Rural Lifestyle Dealer team is pleased to announce our first Dealer Success Academy — a virtual, on-demand conference set for March 7-8, 2019. Here’s what’s different about the conference and why we think you’ll be excited to register today.Dealer-Success-Academy-Logo_FINAL-Alternate_Outlined_web

1. The virtual, on-demand format provides a flexible learning opportunity where you can still be in the office, serving customers.

We often hear from dealers that it’s tough for them to be away from their dealerships. Because it can take so much prep time to be out of the office, it may not seem worth the effort to many of you to attend live conferences. That’s why we’re taking a different approach.

The Dealer Success Academy consists of presentations posted at the start of each day, allowing you to view the topics you want, when you want, for as long as you want. Each session will be archived, so you can go back at a later time and pick up where you left off. You just need to be a registered participant to have access to the presentations and the archive. Best of all, we’re offering it at no-cost to you.

2. An interactive format, plus a Q&A session, gives a “knowledge boost” to the online presentations.

The format gives me an opportunity to engage with the experts, with my goal being to ask questions that you would ask regarding strategies that need more explanation. Plus, the experts will be available to answer your questions in an online Q&A throughout the event, as well as in a post-event Q&A wrap-up.

The idea behind this format was to enhance the traditional webinar format, making it more interesting and giving you more knowledge — on demand, on your time.

3. The experts are focusing on “dealer takeaways,” so you can put their ideas to work at your dealership.

Theories and high-level concepts have their place — but not at the Dealer Success Academy. We’re working with experts who work with equipment dealers or who are dealers themselves. They want to talk about real-world ideas as much as you want to hear them.

We guarantee you will be able to log off from the event with an idea you can implement in your dealership immediately. For those larger ideas that require more planning, you will learn the necessary steps for a solid start at customizing the idea for your dealership.

4. You can turn the Dealer Success Academy into a training event for your staff.

We hope you encourage your team members to also register for the event. It’s a great professional development opportunity for them, helping motivate them to bring new ideas to your dealership.

Consider setting aside time during the event for key team members to view the presentations together. Perhaps you can integrate the Dealer Success Academy into your own training programs?

It’s all about turning knowledge into action and, ultimately, into dealer success.

Go here to check out our panel of expert presenters. We thank our kick-off sponsors, Basic Software Systems, Kioti and ECHO. And, stay tuned as we share more about the presentations early next year.

One more thing, in case I failed to mention it … we hope you register today.
