Sean V Bradley Puts TradeInVelocity to the Test

This is the recording of a recent Google+ Hangout with Sean V Bradley, Barry Brodsky, and Carl Bauer taking an in-depth look at TradeInVelocity, a highly customizable vehicle trade-in tool for your dealership website.

In this video, Barry walks you through each different feature this tool offers, with Sean putting Barry and TiV to the test with "curve ball" questions that give you a chance to better understand the real impact of these features. 

Nobody can get to the bottom line of a tool like this than Sean, unveiling to you the power and importance of a vehicle trade-in tool that is customizable in many ways.

For instance, where other trade-in tools brand themselves on your site, TradeInVelocity allows you to either show the NADAguides badge, or none at all; allowing for a seamless integration into your website. Better than that though? You’ll never redirect your web-traffic to a lead-stealing competitor.

NADAguides are a nationally recognized publication utilized by association members… of which over 95% of all automobile dealerships are a part of. NADAguides supplies the most accurate ranges for trade-in vehicles…and with TradeInVelocity, you control your bottom line. Customize the displayed values to stay competitive in your local market.

No other trade-in valuation tool allows for this level of customization! Why leave the values in the hands of those who are only out to promote their brand? With TIV, you’ll never have to again.

TradeInVelocity also provides you with a simple set of analytics your dealership will user every month to maximize lead generation. Keep track of your leads, their sources, the top ten replacement vehicles desired by your incoming customers, and more.

No other trade-in valuation tool provides you with this rich data. No other tool provides you with this piece of mind.

Enjoy the video and feel free to mosey on over to the TiV website to learn more about the many great features you will find in this tool, but be sure to get with Sean V Bradley if you are interested in a demo so that you can take advantage of Dealer Synergy's special pricing

Wi-Fi, The New Marketing, Advertising Channel

The term wif-fi does not have a meaning. It is a shortened name given by the Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance, the group which ensures compatibility between hardware devices that use the 802.11 standard.  Wi-Fi is used for high-speed connections (10 Mbps or greater) to laptops, desktops, smartphones, tablets and any other wireless device located within proximity indoors  or within several hundred yards outdoors.

Wi-fi service providers are networking cities and other areas with a high concentration of consumers. These location networks are called "hot-spots" and access can be free or fee based. The original wi-fi service providers had no idea this technology would have such broad appeal and acceptance by even small businesses owners. Blacksburg, VA was one of the first cities wired with free wi-fi for the entire city.

Some wi-fi service providers use their sign-up page as new space for advertisers in hot-spots in airports, train stations, shopping malls, hotels for example. 

With such high level of use by wireless device owners can wi-fi become the next successful marketing and advertising channel? Most businesses, that offer free wi-fi, provide the hot-spot as a tool to keep shoppers in the business longer in hopes of getting sales for products and/or services offered.

What if a business with free or secure wi-fi had a cost effective means to place opt-in ads for all users of the wi-fi service? That would mean the business owner could control advertising of its products to all shoppers casually using the wi-fi for Internet surfing and make more sales.

As a dealer would you expand your wi-fi to an advertising tool for more sales opportunities? If so, ANProximityMarketing has the exclusive rights for such a service in the U.S. Call 571-235-6538 and sign-up now.

I am GIVING AWAY $1,000 CASH… (Again!)

 

I am GIVING AWAY $1,000 CASH… (AGAIN!!)

I am so thankful for being a Car Salesman. I can NOT imagine what my life would have been if I never stepped foot onto that showroom floor and took a chance selling cars. I went from being a BROKE College Drop Out to owning a Multi-Million Dollar Company in such a short time. I love this business because of how successful we can ALL be, if we applied ourselves. “Millionaire Car Salesman”, I would NEVER have thought it possible. This business is simple… What you put into it is what you are going to get out of it.

I recently have been giving CASH away to my clients who have been successful, who have applied themselves, who have earned it. As a matter of fact today I will be announcing a winner of $1,000 CASH to an Automotive Internet Sales Coordinator (An Appointment Setter / BDC Rep). There were NO strings attached. I simply wanted to see who was the BEST Dealer Synergy Coordinator in the country and the winner would (And will) receive $1,000 CASH! 

So, I had ANOTHER idea… I spoke to Susan Givens, the Publisher of AutoSuccess Magazine and we have decided to create a FUN Contest for AutoSuccess readers. We are going to be giving away $1,000 CASH to a Lucky Reader! Why would we do this you ask? Simple… Because we can J We are blessed to be in this industry and to have achieved so much success. We want to spread the love.

Here is what we are looking for… We want to try to HELP Automotive Sales Professionals BE MORE SUCCESSFUL!!! So, we are looking for ideas, thoughts, tips, secrets, best practices, examples, websites, objections / rebuttals,  mobile apps, habits, ANYTHING & EVERTHING you can think of to be successful in Automotive Sales, etc…

Please send your emails, videos, links etc… to seanb@dealersynergy.com Susan Givens from AutoSuccess and I will BOTH review every one of the entries and choose the “Best Success Idea / Strategy” and we will publish the winner in the following issue of AutoSuccess Magazine with an interview as well as their “Best Idea / Strategy” of course.

Please remember, we are NOT just trying to throw $1,000 cash away for nothing. We are not showing off, that money isn’t an issue. As a matter of fact, believe it or not but this is coming out of our pocket. There are NO Sponsors, No reimbursements etc… This is what it is. A real contest. We all know that out of the hundreds of thousands of automotive sales professionals in this country, some are truly successful and others are not so successful. There has got to be a reason, actually there are a lot of reasons but I want to FOCUS on JUST one of those reasons… Information! Some people truly might NOT know HOW to be successful. They were NEVER taught, they never believed they could, they were never trained, motivated, mentored etc… I want to help as many people as I can and I know Susan as well as the rest of the AutoSuccess team want to do the same. So, please when you submit your entry for a chance to win this contest please remember what the end result in mind is… Synergistic Success.  Explain what your idea, strategy, secret, tip, best practice, website, resource, mobile app, objections / rebuttals, “What If” Answers,  etc… is AND WHY you think it is so important, why it makes YOU truly successful. Please try to provide any examples, any validation you can for this.

I am honesty looking forward to all of the entries. This is going to be fun and purposeful!

Good luck everyone. Please call or email me if you have ANY questions about this contest!
