Introduction

I wanted to introduce myself as a contributor to the Driving Sale community. My name is Gary Sanders and I am the Internet Director at Stevinson Lexus of Lakewood which is just west of Denver Colorado. This year I am celebrating my seventh year at Stevinson and tenth in the car business. I started at a Ford store in Colorado Springs in 2000 when I moved to Denver in 2001. In March of 2003, I was hired at Stevinson Lexus of Lakewood on the floor. When the Internet position became available I started with the basics of Internet lead comes in, answer and repeat. I then learned as a dealer we had to option to edit our Cobalt site. As I dived in, my first step was to the other Lexus dealers in the area then region to see what they were doing with there site. For the life of me, I could not understand why dealer had the options and the tools and did nothing with them? As my career, understanding and education continued, I recognized I had a truly great opportunity to take it to the next level. One person I want to thank and consider a friend that has guided me is Gary May of http://www.imacsweb.com/. He has been very helpful in sharing ideas and always great to chat to. He is the one that introduced me to sites like drivingsales.com and others. My post will be about dealer to dealer chats and how we can improve. From sale, fixed ops to training. Although titled “It not all about the vendors”, I encourage everyone to comment. Thank you to Jared, Bart and the Driving Sale team.
