Good tips, but there is more to it than that. There is an entire process involved including right timing, good presentation to show the customer exactly what they would get and an adaptive pricing strategy that can quickly react to market dynamics.

Dealers that fly by the seat of their pants and don't invest in training usually fall off as they have high turnover.
