Every problem in life can be fixed with good marketing. I don’t care what it is.
You give me any problem in your dealership, and it boils down to this: You’re bad at marketing.
That’s the issue.
Are you struggling to sell more new cars?
Want to create a trade-up event landing page?
Need to boost renewals?
Can’t find new customers in service?
It all comes back to marketing. It’s not enough to dabble in marketing; you must become a student of it.
If you come to my office, you’ll see books on marketing from floor to ceiling. I’ve spent my entire life studying this because I know that it makes everything I do in life more successful.
This was true when I was working in dealerships, and it still is today.
Good marketing will get you great friends, a great spouse, and lots of money.

It doesn’t matter what kind of market you’re in.

…but you aren’t breaking any rules if you read them out of order.
There’s only one rule. You have to promise that you will apply it as soon as possible.
Remember, almost everything in a dealership can be solved with good marketing!
