The Perennial Sales Starter Kit

The Perennial Sales Starter Kit

Outside of having some online training that I could do on my own time, a 2-Day Sales Training Course, shadowing the top Sales Consultant (at my initiative)…

I’m excited to be a part of the community that Jared has created here at DrivingSales. Social media is exploding and connecting all of us together in an entirely new way. I know a lot of you already from working in the industry for over 20 years now, and I look forward to meeting you if we don’t know each other yet. I want to contribute as much as possible to help everyone sell more, service more and fine tune their operation, especially during the difficult period we are facing now. Coming from the dealership side of things, I have knowledge and insight to share and really want to help you solve your problems and challenges. I like to hear unusual/different/new problems because I love to find solutions. I was the kid who went every day to the local 7-eleven till I was able to beat the Pac Man machine. I was also the same kid who had to solve the Rubik’s cube the fastest in my school. (I know these things date me pretty well but I love a challenge.) Send me any current challenges you’re facing and I promise to help solve them. Ask me about anything related to the dealership. I have worked in every department, from detailing vehicles to sales to management to ownership, so I truly bring a wide area of knowledge to operating a store. So let’s get started: what objections are you hearing from your Internet customers in today’s market? Send them to me and we can share the knowledge with the DrivingSales community and help everyone. I will focus the blog content on Internet tools to sell more vehicles. This will be everything from social media platforms, to plug in applications, anything that will help you drive more sales into your dealership. Shopper’s demands and expectations continue to rise and it is our responsibility to find way to meet and greet them online to provide a dynamic customer experience. Does your dealership offer this to shoppers? Together we will find tools, strategies and tactics that you can implement in real time at your dealership. I see lots of great ideas on DrivingSales and I want to focus on finding solutions to problems and challenges. Post comments here, call me at 321-662-7800 or send email to todd@activengage.com. Also be sure to follow me on twitter at http://www.twitter.com/toddlearsmith. Ask me anything and I’ll answer it, promise!
