Every sales operation is always looking for ways to improve their sales rates. But it’s hard to do without actionable data in hand. We will share actual, exclusive 2012 CarsDirect customer survey data on why customers aren’t buying. This data has not yet been revealed publicly and aggregates thousands of survey responses from customers who submitted leads on CarsDirect.com to dealers and to CarsDirect’s in-house auto brokerage business. We will explore the latest buying trends, reasons customers aren’t buying, and how dealers can change their current processes to immediately improve their closing ratios. We’ll also explore lead sources and the content consumers see online prior to submitting their leads, and how to use this content to prepare to meet customer expectations and sell more cars. Todd Dearborn is sharing his expertise with you.
What will you learn and what action items will you take back to the dealership?
1. Learn the top reasons customers aren’t buying from the dealer that originally received their lead.
2. Obtain a better understanding of lead sources, the types of content customers are consuming before submitting leads, and how to use this information to better meet each customer’s differing needs.
3. Learn how to specifically improve current sales processes to better meet customer expectations and eliminate inefficiencies in lead management.
