Free Webinar: Prospecting Advice from a 30 Car Guy


Published on

Follow-up to "Advice from a 30-Car Guy" in the February issue of Auto Success Magazine.

Have you ever met someone who moved 30 vehicles per month who didn't have a solid plan in place? A salesman is NOT going accomplish their goal of 30 units per month by waiting for "ups" to walk into the showroom. You need to be proactive instead of reactive. Are you?

If you/your dealership is mostly selling from fresh ups, internet and phone, then you are leaving a lot of money on the table - especially knowing that a referral closes at 50% or more and has a higher gross profit. So instead of waiting for the next walk-in, why not create your own sales opportunities? Isn't it time to drive your own traffic to the dealership, start treating your career as your own business and start making more than $100,000 a year? If you're serious about selling cars - and making money - then this free 1 hour webinar is for you.

This webinar will cover:
ideas to help you sell 30 cars a month
the lost art of prospecting
how salespeople can create their own business plan to reach their sales goals
...and much more.

This is a webinar that every Salesperson, GSM, GM and Dealer Principal should watch.
