If People Buy From People They Like, How Do You Get Them to Like You?

It’s a well-known fact that people buy from people (or companies) they like. There are certainly many different ways to get customers to like your dealership, from providing a great customer experience to being active in your local community. However, consumers are increasingly finicky when choosing where to buy or service their vehicle. In addition, in today’s highly competitive market, they have more choices than ever before. So, what can you do to increase the chances that consumers choose you over your competition? An excellent article in Time magazine shares advice from 10 CEOs about what individuals and businesses can do to improve the chances consumers will choose them. It contains some valuable advice; some of which you’ve undoubtedly heard before but is nonetheless worth repeating; and some that may not be as obvious but is just as valuable. The first point is perhaps the most obvious: treat others the way you would like to be treated yourself. This is a huge thing to me. I think far too often simply “being nice” is a forgotten commodity in business. In my opinion, there can be too much rudeness and lack of genuine human kindness in today’s fast-paced world. Okay, so getting back to how this could apply in your dealership. Think about how you treat the customer in terms of car sales. If you were buying a vehicle, would you want to go through the same process you put your customers through? If the answer is yes, you are on the right track. If the answer is no, then perhaps it is time to take a look at your processes. The next point the article shares is a good follow on and that is to be interested, not interesting. Body language and actions can easily win a customer’s favor or turn them off. Showing interest in your customers means more than simply relaying the message that you’re interested in selling a car to them. They already know that. A key point the article shares is to be interested rather than interesting. Make sure you are not doing all the talking. Take time to listen to what they have to say. This helps build that all important trust and rapport. Next is a big one, and one that, rightly or wrongly, our industry tends to be called out for, and that is being honest. The second a car buyer thinks you are being dishonest you have probably lost any chance of a car sale. You also need honesty in order to win at the next point, which is making an emotional connection with them. Rapport begins with trust. Most car shoppers these days conduct a ton of research before they show up on your lot or submit a lead form. While your answers may not precisely correspond to their information, due to technological issues or differences in providers, if you can explain why and show them how to replicate your answer on their own (such as Kelly Blue Book vs. Black Book trade-in value) it goes a long way towards preserving that trust. In the end, how you communicate is an extremely important part of the customer experience. Whether via e-mail, phone, text, or in-person, all aspects of that communication contribute to how your customer perceives you and whatever your intentions may be. From body language, to tone of voice, to answering the customers questions and providing the requested information, get it right and your competition doesn’t stand a chance!See More

Should You Upgrade to Microsoft 2019?

Microsoft has released Office 2019, the newest version of its desktop suite of applications that most dealership employees use on a daily basis; including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook for email. Prior versions of Office that your dealership might still be using are Office 2016, Office 2013 and Office 2010. Please don't tell me you're still using Office 2007. If you're thinking about upgrading to Office 2019, I encourage you to look at another option. If you haven't already, now is the time to migrate to Office 365 Business, which offers cloud-based versions of all the same Office applications, plus additional features. Considering what you get, Office 365 is actually less expensive than the single license version of Office 2019. The price for Office 365 Business Premium is $12.50 per user per month, which is just $150 per year. The cost for a single license of Office 2019 is $250 and yes, it can feasibly be used for more than one year. But Microsoft also announced that Office 2019 is a one-time release and won't receive any future feature updates. That means Office 2019 will become outdated pretty quickly. Plus, Office 2019 doesn't offer any of the cool cloud-connected features that Office 365 offers, such as workflow, productivity and collaboration tools. The fact is, Microsoft is really pushing to get everyone onto the cloud-based version, so the benefits of doing so far outweigh any reasons not to migrate. At this point I can't think of a reason not to switch, unless you work in a cave with no Internet access. Let's take a look at some of the advantages of switching to Office 365. Eliminate Licensing and Hardware Headaches Depending on how many employees you have, on-premise licensing fees can get expensive. In addition to licenses for Office applications, dealerships pay licensing fees for Exchange Servers and Exchange User Client Access Licenses. That doesn't include the cost of hardware and the cost of having to hire someone to maintain all the equipment. Additionally, someone at the dealership has to be responsible for handling security patches and other software updates on a regular basis. Perhaps the biggest issue that Office 365 helps you avoid is the usage of unlicensed copies. This happens when someone in a dealership installs Office on six or ten or even dozens of computers, instead of limiting installations to the three or five licenses that come with the package. Unfortunately, this practice is fairly common. It's also illegal and very costly, if you're caught. In recent years, the Business Software Alliance (BSA) has really cracked down on small and mid-sized businesses, and offers whistle-blowers (usually disgruntled employees) cash rewards for reporting businesses that use unlicensed software. One dealership I know of got caught using unlicensed copies of Microsoft Office on over 300 computers, and had to pay a fine of $1.5 million. Another dealer purchased a small dealership only to be hit with $50,000 in fines because the new store had unlicensed software installed on its computers. Paying a small monthly per user license for Office 365 eliminates this risk and makes for easier budgeting. Greater Team Collaboration and Productivity Office 365 offers features designed for team collaboration, improving workflow and increasing productivity. With Office 365 everyone has a clear view of task assignments, workloads and timetables so that all team members are in the loop on a project's status. Additionally, Office 365 has integrated Yammer, an enterprise-level social platform that allows team members to communicate from any location. Office 365 also has Skype for Business, allowing team members to call quick virtual meetings, as opposed to formal in-person meetings, which tend to be lengthy and inhibit productivity. Increased Mobility and Flexibility Office 2019 is installed one time on a single PC or Mac. Office 365 allows a single user to sign in from multiple devices, including mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. This allows team members to easily check email, edit documents and securely access shared information at anytime from anywhere. Improved Security Chances that your dealership will experience a cyber attack are growing every year. Applying software updates, also known as patching, is one of the most important security measures you can take to protect your dealership. Yet in my experience, 95% of dealerships aren't doing this on a regular basis. Perhaps the greatest advantage of Office 365 is that cloud-based applications are instantly updated with every new software and security update. With Office 2019, employees and even IT staff can ignore software update notifications for days, if not weeks, leaving your network vulnerable to cyber attacks. If you're a desktop die-hard and prefer to have Office applications on your computers, whether or not you upgrade to Office 2019 depends on the version you're using now. Microsoft is ending support for Office 2010 in October 2020. If you're using Office 2016, be aware that although the standalone version will still function after October 2020, you won't be able to access any additional Office 365 services such as Exchange Online, Sharepoint Online or OneDrive for Business. If your dealership hasn't already migrated to Office 365, you might want to try it. Start small, with one department. Ensure that every employee gets the necessary training and support to make the transition successful. Do you have questions about technology?

1990s Mercedes Benz S320 - One more among those super duper condition timeless Mercedes

This is a 1990s W140 series Mercedes Benz S320. The mommy of all over-engineered Mercedes Benz. The factor it is in below is as a result of the problem it is in. It is immaculate. Seriously spotless but one that is still driven on a regular basis.The reason that it is in such a condition after a minimum of twenty or two years on the road is the proprietors had and also currently has actually saved no cost in keeping it. It came from a buddy who inherited it from his dad who has actually passed on. He went on keeping it for a few years and also was the man who decided to alter the wheels from the initial 16 inch alloys to 18 inches that when came from a Mercedes W140 CL-series sports car. He had actually then decided to market it over to an additional close friend of mine whom most of you know as the serial cars and truck customer whose cars I feature in here extremely commonly. He is currently a serial Used Mercedes E350 Cars purchaser from the appearances of it.Yet who would not pass up such a good looking S-class. This vehicle is sensational in and out. Actually stunning. And also considering that it is an S-class, it has all the rewards from dual glazed home windows, superb soundproofing, a trip that you might eliminate for (also on this pre-air suspension S-class), supreme waftability (it simply moves when driving), a smooth straight-six 3.2 litre engine and also a smooth altering 5 speed automated gearbox. The 3.2 litre straight six makes 231PS and 315Nm. It can do 0-100kmh in about 9.5 secs and also cruise ship easily at 160kmh for hrs. Full throttle must be about 231kmh. And also it weighs 1900kg.It may be a storage tank, however it is still so simple to navigate and drive around town (I bear in mind composing a write-up on my drive experience in a comparable Used Mercedes S320 Cars For Sale five years ago for CarThrottle). Parking is the only issue as it is huge. It does the remainder quite well. Not in the sports car means, however in the full on deluxe vehicle kind of means. Even to now.The thing concerning the W140 is that it actually is as big as the present W222 S-class. It likewise has that upright grille and also squared off bodywork that in some way does not look dated specifically because it currently has 18 inch wheels like the present S-class. This is a charm. Sufficient claimed, simply take pleasure in the pictures. I will at some point compose a drive record about this beauty among these days.Damn. This may be a container and also there is nothing flashy concerning it whatsoever. I still get weak knees taking a look at it.See More

Are You Going to Buy Your First Car? Then Pay Attention

Tips for People Buying A Car For The First TimeBuying Car for First Time? Confused by seeing so many option or nervous due to lack of knowledge? But most of all you must be excited!One of the most important stages in our life and that fill us with satisfaction is to acquire our own car for the first time and especially if it has been the result of our savings, maybe a certain part worries us about making the right purchase.There are many concerns that arise around the purchase of the first car, on the one hand you are excited to fulfil that long-awaited dream but on the other hand, you feel nervous about this great purchase.Therefore, you must carefully plan some key points that will help you to be completely sure that this is the best choice you could make. Here are the few tips for first-car owners.Identify The Real Transport You NeedDo you dream for convertible two people but you have children or other family members? May then that longing become a great discomfort. To avoid that, when you buy your first car, it is necessary to know what you need: Remember that a car, beyond aesthetic or modern it may be, is finally a tool to improve your quality of life. You must be clear about what you want as a car is not something that you usually change in every now and then.Budget: How much Can You PayAnalyze your finances: Whether you buy your car in cash or request financing, it is important to consider that the value of the fee is not the only number you have to have in mind. When you decide to get on your own car for the first time, you have to add to your monthly budget: fuel, maintenance (usually every 10 thousand kilometres), tolls or tag, insurance, driving license, cleaning, etc.Design & FeaturesIt is important that you acquire the vehicle in the size that you really require and may have. There are those who buy cars that later do not fit in the garage. There are also people who must drive in rural streets or poor condition and a very low car can have constant damage to hit the street. In the same way, it must be considered if older adults are being transported in the vehicle so that their access and exit is facilitated.Also look for the features you are offered like reverse sensing system, adjustable comforts, defogger, multiple 12V power outlets, traction control, surrounding cameras & sensors, heated or cooled seats, GPS, Sunroof, Centre controlled automated door, window and trunk etc.Mileage & Fuel EconomyWhether it is a new or old car mileage is THE FACTOR. After purchasing the car it might be trouble for you. So decide you want a economy car or sports car. Also keep in mind which kind of fuel engine you want.SecurityIn addition to size, design, technological features and colour, there is much more to a car than you should consider. Security is a fundamental factor. It is the bestfordriver to check his security first thus by checking the security of the car by his own. Experts recommend that you ensure that your first car has, at least, these 3 features:Anti-lock braking system (ABS brakes): This technology prevents the wheels from braking completely when there is an emergency and so the cars do not slip on surfaces with little rubbing (like wet streets, with ice or other) and so the driver maintains control in difficult situations.Electronic stabilization system : This system prevents the car from sliding sideways, as could happen when driving too fast on a curve. This feature is especially useful when there are adverse weather conditions.Airbags: Airbag technology has advanced fast. Now most have sequential detonation systems, to avoid harming passengers; also of curtains to avoid the damages in lateral impacts, etc.New or Used?This point must be one of the most difficult to decide. We all very much excited to drive the car. But there are several factors, especially economic that depends on your decision. This decision will depend not only on the budget that you have set aside for the purchase, but also on what you are looking for: functionality, long-term investment, saving, fulfilling a whim, having a guarantee that it will not be broken down, etc.If you decide for a New CarSearch & compare the models in the ads to obtain best possible price.Keep your mind ready to negotiate.Have test drive on different roadsConsider the terms & condition before signing the purchase or finance agreement.Visit the dealer in final days of month or quarters as the salesman have quotas to sell to fulfil the target and achieve the bonus.If you decide for a Used CarKnow the value of the carInvestigate the history of the carExamine the car every detailHave test drive on different roadsAsk for the car documentsAsk a expertCheck the condition of battery of the car whether it is discharged completely or it is dead. In both case you have to use a jump starter by using a crocodile clip. Here you can know more about the jump starter.In short the more attention you give to the details and the adequate time to make the purchase, the greater the chances of a successful purchase that leaves us with a good taste in the mouth.See More

Got Squeaky Brakes? 4 Ways to Determine the Cause

Brakes refer to tools that are responsible for the motions that are associated with cars. If you want to pause a car in motion, you can rely on your brakes. If you want to make it run slowly, you can rely on them all the same. If your vehicle’s brakes are squealing and making unusual sounds out of nowhere, you should zero in on the problem as soon as possible.Visit a Local Automotive Repair ShopIf you want to figure out what exactly is making your brakes squeak, then you should schedule an appointment with a trusted and experienced mechanic in your area as soon as possible. Call or visit an auto repair shop in your neighborhood. A skilled mechanic can assess your vehicle’s braking system as a means of figuring out the cause of the unpleasant noise. Nothing can top the confidence of getting insight from a professional. If you need brake repairs, a mechanic can tell you what needs to be done.Ask Knowledgeable People for FeedbackYou may have a friend, a significant other or a pal who is well-versed in vehicle braking systems. If you do, then you should ask him or her for an opinion. Information from a car aficionado may help point you in the right direction. It may help you narrow down all of the things that could be bringing on the persistent and piercing brake sounds. The more information you collect from others, the better.Read about Vehicle’s Brakes on the InternetThe Internet is practically overflowing with reputable websites that discuss the ins and outs of vehicle braking systems. If you want to figure out what may be triggering the squeaking sounds, you should read credible sites. Read all about “symptoms” that are associated with braking issues that are commonplace, too.Assess Your Vehicle’s BrakesIf your brakes are in trouble, there may be several clues. Focus on the state of your brakes. If you realize that anything is out of the ordinary, you need to invest in professional service right away. Pay attention to possible burning odors, fluid leakage, and odd tugging actions. In-depth repair service can often be suitable for brake issues. Replacement is sometimes required, too.If your brakes are squealing, you can’t ignore the situation. Dismissing braking system problems can be a major danger to you. It can often harm other drivers as well. It’s critical to take brake functioning seriously.See More

For a Profitable Service Department, Don’t Get Tired of Tires!

91% of service customers defect once they are out of warranty, and those are a dealership’s most profitable customers. What can your dealership do to help retain these valuable customers? Tire sales can easily distinguish your dealership from its competition and decrease defection, but only if they are promoted and sold differently than how most dealerships currently do it. Tire sales should start right at the purchase of the vehicle. Have your salespeople inform the customer that your dealership is super competitive on tire prices. Then be sure to engage throughout the lifecycle of the customer with regular promotions via email blasts or text, whichever the customer prefers. By reinforcing that message throughout all of the dealership’s marketing, your customers will be more engaged, and you will be top-of-mind, with a better chance of capturing their business when they are in the market for tires. The next promotion point is your website. Dealers on their game regularly add prominent tire service specials to their website. The problem is that, in most cases, those service specials only offer a “click to print” option and aren’t optimized for mobile devices. These days, 60-70% of consumers use the internet via mobile devices, and this number is increasing. Why wouldn’t you provide your customers access to your specials on their cell phones? Get with your website provider and ensure that your tire specials are well displayed on your website and that these offers are mobile-friendly. If you require customers to present a coupon for a tire special, your website and those coupons must be accessible and redeemable in the way consumers access them – via their phones. Customers can then save those coupons directly onto their mobile phones to present when they arrive as they can add it to their Apple Pay wallet or their Android device. This format is more relevant and perfectly targets and engages those low-funnel service customers. I know several dealers who are beating out their local competition by doing this. In fact, when John Marazzi, Managing Partner at Sun Toyota, implemented mobile text coupons for service, he saw an incredible spike in overall tire sales of 60%. And William Finsilver at BMW of Bloomfield saw a 200+% increase in service leads. Ultimately, the end goal is to get the service customer to continue to service their vehicle both during and outside of warranty. This retention in service also gives your dealership an increased opportunity to sell the customer their next vehicle once they get into an equity position. It makes sense to adjust your sales and marketing strategies to today’s customers. This will increase the likelihood that those customers will stick around. If your customers continue to service at your dealership, they are that much more likely to buy their future vehicles from you, and refer their family and friends, too. This circular transactional pattern can only lead to increased profits, a busier sales and service department and, ultimately, happier customers.    See More

Automotive Detailing – How it Improves your Car

Auto detailing is often overlooked by most car owners, but it helps prolong its life. Not only is it beneficial for old, run-down cars but also for the new car owners who wish to maintain the look of their car for years to come. And let’s face it, driving a nice shiny car is better than driving a dirty one anytime. Moreover, the cleanliness of your car is a direct reflection of your personality and helps leave a good impression on people you meet. Mentioned below are some more ways how auto detailing affects your car:Preserves the paintThe exterior paint of your car easily loses its quality due to dust, dirt, and debris on the road. Eventually, these damages lead to scratches and tiny digs that are not pleasant to look at. This is where car detailing comes to your rescue. It not only ensures that your vehicle doesn’t pick up any scratches but also restores the shine of your car. Moreover, the technicians apply a generous coating of wax that acts as a protective layer.Restores comfortWhen you plan to go on a long drive with your loved ones, the experience is going to be far more improved if the interior of your car is clean and fresh. Maintaining interiors gets easier with car detailing services availed every now and then. The technician not only thoroughly cleans and conditions the car seats but also removes all the dirt buildup and other contaminants. Hence, Google car interior cleaning near me and be sure to pick a reliable source.Preserves vehicle valueIf you are planning to resell your car in the future, it is better to set up frequent detailing appointments. Detailing preserves the value of your car. Moreover, it’s only when your car looks in great condition, will the buyer be actually interested in buying your car. Additionally, if your car’s battery is faulty, it’s better to get a battery replacement service as well before you go out to show your vehicle to a potential buyer.Improved engines performanceWhen you notice a spotless engine as soon as you pop open the hood of your car, it automatically boosts up your confidence. A professionally detailed engine not only looks better but also lasts longer.Without a doubt, car detailing increases the worth of a car quite considerably and protects it from further wear and tear. See More

Meta Desc. for Product Pages

Hey guys, So I have my first ecommerce client, and none of their product pages have a meta description....we're talking almost 1K pages. That's a lot of descriptions to write!
