What is Performance Management-

Performance Management is where the magic happens. Our success at Cardinale Automotive began when we started at the foundation of our business and built a management driven business model instead of a Market driven one. ZMOT uses this same philosophy when working with our Automotive Dealer Partners.  Performance Management focuses on conversion (Turning Opportunities into Buyers). This is designed to identify where you are right now in each department so that we can implement a growth action plan with a clear start and end in mind.

What does Dealer to Dealer mean? –

Dealer to Dealer encompasses our promise to build genuine and lasting relationships with our clients and our dedication to work alongside the Dealership to offer guidance to improve every department. ZMOT Auto employs a Leadership and Performance team  with a proven background of success in Management positions within a dealership.

Digital Dealer Conference #DD22
Room: 24
Tuesday, April 11, 2017: 2:30 PM – 3:20 PM

Description

What’s the most effective way of marketing your business and creating opportunities for a sale? You have to be where your customer is so they can find you but once that happens what comes next? We all know that an opportunity doesn’t equal a sale so do you know the most effective way to engage a customer and create an outstanding relationship? You have to live in the space where their attention lies. Literally, in their hands. The average adult spends 23 hours a week texting. You’re probably saying to yourself – We know that. Customers are insisting on texting and so is your sales staff. Is that enough to convert that customer into a sale? Does a sales person know how to handle a text customer, what process to use and why? Are you unknowingly opening your dealership up to lawsuits?

Learning Objectives

• Learn how to be compliant with the texting laws, and what options are out there that add no cost to your dealership and keep you legal. 
• Learn how to engage with a customer who has already been in, and turn them into a sale opportunity VS someone who comes in as a text    “lead.” Should you add video? Does it convert higher? I will show you. 
• Learn how to set your CRM up to identify this customer, when/how to contact them, and how to convert a “text” opportunity into a sale.
