CAR-Research XRM Releases Auto Dealers' Guide to Outselling Competition, Increasing Car Sales, Decreasing 3rd Party Leads, & Closing more Be-Backs

 

 

Houston, Texas, August 16, 2011 – Many auto dealerships are closing just twenty percent of shoppers who come through the doors, while the remaining eighty percent simply walk away to a competitor. CAR-Research XRM, a single-source CRM solution uniquely branded as; “XRM, Exceeding CRM”, today announced the release of: An Auto Dealers' Guide to Outselling Competition, Increasing Car Sales, Decreasing 3rd Party Leads and Closing more Be-Backs. The new eBook is a best practices guide for auto dealers, covering CRM strategies for selling unsold customers. It reveals how to get these unsold customers back into the dealership and close the sale.

 

“To have eighty percent of sales opportunities simply walk away to a competitor is never acceptable. Dealerships must – and can – retain and recapture more sales opportunities. An Auto Dealers' Guide to Outselling Competition, Increasing Car Sales, Decreasing 3rd Party Leads and Closing more Be-Backs lays out some simple, usable information as to how to do this,” said Kurt Kubicki, VP of Marketing for CAR-Research XRM.

 

The new eBook provides best practices strategies to help auto dealers use their CRM tools to:
 

  • Increase sales to showroom traffic by 50% or more by identifying and overcoming 'real' customer objections vs. false excuses.
  • Create a showroom process which will consistently increase sales to be-backs, repeats, and referrals every month, for higher gross and higher CSI.
  • Increase accountability in your dealership which will insure process improvement on your showroom floor, resulting in additional sales.

Finally, the eBook reveals what research with thousands of car buyers from dealerships across the US has found are the real reasons they leave a dealership unsold – and how dealers can leverage this insightful information to improve internal processes, so fewer shoppers walk on you in the future.

 “We’ve grown our business from 70 cars a month to 400 per month, and I can tell you that the hottest prospects to buy a car from my store today are the customers that left my showroom yesterday and did not buy from us. There are deals that we miss every single day and we don't know why. Without question, the fastest, easiest, and least expensive way to sell more cars immediately is to start research interviews with your unsold showroom traffic....period,” commented Bruce Glasscock, General Manager/Owner of Spring Chrysler Jeep Dodge.
