Sales Pipeline Efficiency – Data Analysis Meets Marketing Strategy

New car sales reached a global record high in 2013 (CNBC). This economic indicator, along with statistics showing continuing declines in unemployment, points to a strengthening economy. This is good news for car dealers. However, statistics also reveal that Americans now delay car replacement for as long as possible, with truck owners keeping their vehicles for more than ten years on average. So, while general economic trends and industry-specific data add up to promising average auto sales, dealerships Read more [...]

How one-to-one marketing is changing the way dealers buy marketing

The rise of one-to-one marketing is changing the way dealerships invest their marketing dollars.

To remain competitive, your dealership must prepare for and participate in this dramatic shift in automotive marketing. Early on, Client Command® Read more [...]

Year End Overdrive: Lead Follow-Through is Key

As we head into year-end, there’s one thought on everyone’s mind. How can we close more deals and finish strong? Really it’s more like “How can we close more deals so we can get the marketing and advertising dollars we need in 2015?” The most basic and well-known stat for sales is: 48% of sales people never follow up with a prospect.  25% of sales people make a second contact and stop. So why aren’t you calling? Set yourself apart.  Yes, we know you are having promotions and touting Read more [...]

Making the Paradigm Shift to Quality First

For most dealerships, incorporating Client Command® into the marketing mix is a paradigm shift.  After all, automotive has traditionally been a numbers business – and that means bigger is always better, right? Not so fast. Marketing just on the # of impressions or mail pieces is old school thinking. Now dealers see better results at a lower price point by delivering messaging that’s relevant to the prospect. That’s why Client Command® elevates the quality of each lead over sheer Read more [...]
