Digital Dealer Conference: Last Chance for Early Bird Registration Rates! Don’t Get Left Out. Register Now!


Attention general managers and dealer principals: Many dealerships are bringing multiple management personnel with responsibility throughout the store. They tell us that there's so much content offered, they can no longer rely on 1 or 2 people to absorb it all. Here's a sample from more than 70 sessions planned:

The Evolution of Business Development: The Hybrid BDC
Enhance your "playbook" to clearly outline your team's improved process, preparing everyone with today's most effective tools and techniques

Success favors the prepared mind! A hybrid BDC can increase net profit with business development representatives and Internet sales specialists as a hybrid car does with gas and electricity. Different forms of power for maximum efficiency! Tools such as live chat, digital cameras and mobile devices can be used to exceed a 25% increase in web site lead conversion and social networking growth. Proven techniques and skill sets will double your conversations (avoid getting an excuse when getting through), appointments and call backs by leaving unique messages. How to move beyond the "low hanging fruit" and ensure that every customer receives accountable and effective follow-up.

Glynn speaks at seminars, workshops and consults with dealers across North America. The NVS Call Center is an extension of Glynn's experience. He has trained thousands of people, written numerous articles, customizes sales playbooks and is the author of "Own the Phone!" 

Do It Yourself Strategies
Proven techniques for building the right team, as well as tips and strategies that will help turn your photo taking, Facebook and lead generating activities into sales.

This session will speak to the importance hiring the right people who can execute on your internet strategy. The self-selection process will help you maximize performance based on areas of responsibility, capability, performance and accountability.

Additionally, we'll discuss how to:

  • Create your own picture taking process
  • Track sales by lead provider in your DMS
  • Take your pay-per-click in-house
  • Leverage social media across the group
  • Address the unique nuances of having different people responsible for selling versus pricing used car inventory

Examples during the presentation will come from the store and corporate level.
