As dealerships get better and better at generating leads online, the challenge becomes developing processes to drive the best leads to your showroom. But how do you determine which leads are most likely to actually buy -- and how can you ensure that they buy from you instead of your competitor?

Targeted incentives are a proven effective way to get motivated buyers into your showroom. Choosing the right prospects to incent will help improve your show-to-close, and keep your cost per sale down.

In this free 30-minute webinar with David Metter, you'll learn the critical importance of scoring leads from all sources, and how to drive only the best leads to your floor. Metter will discuss:

• Quality over quantity -- how to offer incentives to only the leads most likely to buy
• Adding incentives to direct and email campaigns that will dramatically increase show rates
• Re-incenting based on lead score: How to get the best leads to come back
• Great processes for handling those leads once they're in the door

...and much more.

With the summer months approaching, there's no better time to master the art of identifying and incenting top-quality leads!

  • So today’s we’re going to talking about beating your competition and driving the highest quality leads to your showroom. As you can see, we’ll be covering: (read agenda)
  • We deliberately selected this topic at this time because, as we’re coming into the summer months, the flow of leads begins to slow. Lead quality becomes even more important this time of year. So, David, how do you identify quality leads?
  • David, you mentioned lead scoring. Can you talk about your experiences with this?
  • So what is the best way to handle this type of lead?
  • So does a higher lead score really represent a higher intent to purchase a vehicle?
  • With everything automated these days, and every dealership using similar CRM systems, how can you differentiate your dealership from your competitors’?
  • So once you’ve made that initial contact, how can you apply that process to subsequent campaigns?
  • Note that rates are aggregate
  • How can you know that you’re not just offering incentives to people who would have come in anyway?Which scores are worth incentivizing?What kinds of incentives work best? Do they differ by lead score?What about managing the process? Who handles fulfillment, etc.?We’re not interested in lead scoring. Can we still use incentives? How?
