The Dumbest Dealer/GM Quotes Ever RE Inernet Marketing

Paul Rushing
I talk to ISM's and GM's almost daily not to mention I too have worked for the old school in the past. Here are some of the Dumbest things I have heard dictated from upper management in regards to Internet marketing. - Get the prices off the used cars, the used car manager says it is costing us money. - People are not going to buy a car site unseen over the phone and email. - No we can't hold a car with a credit card deposit for 24 hours. (on a program car/rental purchase piece over 120 days) - Oh they are 350 miles away and you really expect them to be here this morning to buy that 100K mile Oddessy van as they were pulling into the dealership at 9:30 am on a Saturday after driving all nite. Please add yours ......
