The Art Of The Car Deal is a modern, comprehensive sales training manual for the entire sales department. This training involves everyone from the newly hired salesperson through the new and used car managers, and to the dealer principal. This sales process encompasses everyone who may interact in any particular transaction with a customer to ascertain that we are all on the same song sheet. The Art Of The Car Deal is a professional training manual that is a must for new sales people; and is complete with management training at the expert level. Gone are the outdated and hated tactics that have so tarnished our reputation. Also gone are the dirty tricks and deceptive practices that so maligned our business! This training is at the highest level, and it begins when the salesperson makes their first contact with the customer. It covers every aspect of the selling procedure, from the varied selection of greeting methods, with a thorough examination and analysis of the best demonstration (test drive) procedures, and an in-depth explanation of the most powerful methods to perform this essential step that prefaces a successful sale. The all-important arrival back at the dealership is structured in order that we may make a smooth transition into the initial offer (write-up). We fully analyze the various scenarios for their maximum results in achieving our proper entry into the crucial negotiating process, and we explore each possible turn of events. The many possible methods of conducting and structuring the initial offer are presented in detail. We will look at various ways to begin negotiations with a non-committed customer who has responded to our offer to "view the numbers," and the relatively easy and non-threatening way that we move directly into an agreement to purchase. Complete negotiating strategies are covered in depth, and include a variety of word tracks that have proven highly advantageous. Many of these scenarios are most effective when used verbatim. An intensive collection of numerous body language movements accompany many of these suggested closing approaches, and they also have been shown to be most adroit when used as described. Included is the vital body language that is all too often left out of the equation, but in so many cases, the appropriate gesture, shrug, smile, nod, or merely the outstretching of ones' hand will close a sale! This book is full of both the words and gestures that combine to be the most advantageous to virtually guarantee success! Situations where dealer's management closes all sales are studied in detail, and the line-close methods, which are the author's forte, are disclosed in their entirety. All of this knowledge was compiled over a highly prosperous forty year career, wherein the author personally closed over 17,000 sales. The author is credited with also having averaged perfect customer satisfaction on all manufacturers' surveys, and enjoyed much higher than average gross profits throughout his career. This book will professionalize your entire sales department! Congratulations!
