Automotive Internet Sales / Phone Sales "What to Do if There is NO Phone Number or a Bogus Number"
The hardest part of Automotive Internet Sales or Business Development is simply getting the prospect on the phone and that in part is because you might not have ANY phone number to contact them or its a wrong / bogus phone number... OR you might have a number, it could be there home or office and you can't seem to connect with them. So, what do you do? I see way too many people in our industry accepting defeat without ever trying to do something proactively to try to create a connection with a prospect.
What can you do...?
First and foremost is NOT to accept that if there is no phone number listed or if there is a wrong phone number that "That is it". You MUST seek out an alternative... Here is a GREAT website you can go to:

If you can not find the prospect's phone number trying those resources then maybe you should take their email address (from their internet purchase request) and drop it into:
The bottom line is TAKE A SHOT... try to find a person's contact information, or better contact information. REACH OUT TO THEM. Be "Proactive".
And remember, "You can not lose something, that you never have had before".
