To be a top and profitable dealership in 2012 it's going to take a new outlook and new strategy for your dealership. Start thinking e-commerce just like Zappos, Dell, and Geico to name a few.  It's a strategy of behavioral marketing, mobile marketing, and social selling.  The focus will be conversion and content engagement with shopping cart abandonment marketing automation processes.

This can be overwhelming for some but once you allow yourself to accept how the standards have changed and start adopting an e-commerce strategy it will all become simple. You will become so excited once you see that the possibilities and opportunities are endless as you enter into the most profitable years of your dealerships history.  

Your sales market has now become the entire country and your profits can quadruple with a firm grasp on the new marketing strategies that await you.


It's Not Too Late...
Join me on October 9th at 3:45 at the Driving Sales Executive Summit at the Bellagio in Las Vegas when I deliver the Keynote "Defining 2012's Advanced Marketing Strategy for Progressive Dealers".  

I promise you will have a new outlook and a clear direction of what it will take to "Crush the Competition" as Gary would say!
