The cost-reduction potential in the traditional network is huge. But even more exciting is that more than 90 percent of the profits associated with a car or truck occur after the first sale. Innovative ideas that tap this potential may well dominate the evolution of the automotive channel. Such innovations can be achieved by recognizing the causal drivers of the value and the linkages among them. This new life-cycle value paradigm represents one way that a leading-edge car company might approach the problem of creating value through its marketing and distribution activities:
There are a few things to consider when thinking about buying a former rental car. The companies do usually follow the recommended maintenance so the key components like the engine are probably in better condition than cars owned by private people. Cosmetically you may find more minor scrapes and dings especially around the trunk since people don’t seem to be able to lift their luggage. The rental companies tend to take cars out of service after a year or two so you will be getting a relatively new car that has been well maintained. Since they don’t want to deal with negotiating, they will typically have “no haggle” pricing. If you don’t want to deal with negotiating but want a good car at a decent price, this option may be the one for you.

The Mini Dealership is always awesome as well. Been to several across the country and they all seem to be filled with the same eccentrics working there. I don’t think that sentence makes sense. “same eccentrics ”
For example, suppose you used to have stellar credit and you’re used to getting rates like 1.9%. But over the last few years you’ve hit some bumps in the road, had some medical expenses that weren’t paid, been 30 days late on your car payment a few times, rang up some credit card debt, etc., and as a result your credit score isn’t what it used to be. But you aren’t aware of this when you start car shopping, because like most people you don’t pay much attention to your credit. In those circumstances, I don’t want to be the guy who tells you the best rate you qualify for is 14.9%. When I tell people things like that, their first reaction is to hit the ceiling. They think I’m trying to jack them up. Then they go somewhere else, hoping to get some better news. After two or three other dealers have told them “Yessir, 14.9% is the best we can do,” they finally accept reality and buy a car. But I’ve lost a sale. So I’d rather your bank or credit union set your expectations before I see you.
With traditional media, marketers in every industry have long struggled with the issue of latency—the delay between when a marketing activity occurs and when the results can be measured, a problem that is particularly acute in automotive due to its long purchase cycle. In digital media, latency is sharply reduced or eliminated as there is often zero lag time between action and measurement, enabling companies to quickly iterate, learn and improve their marketing programs.
Mobile phones became our defacto platform years ago. Our vehicles will become the next platform that connects our lives to the things that are important to us. Connected cars currently create up to 25 GB of data an hour. As this continues to grow so will the opportunities for users to interact with this data without distractions. Expect to see more ways for this data to benefit us via Amazon and Google’s voice-powered technologies.
I like you because you’re an educated buyer, and you know what you want. My manager, will hate you. With every fiber of his being. Loathe you and shoot lasers of fire and brimstone from his eyes for not buying what’s on the lot. Especially if you’re beating him up on price. But you’ll get the car, and I’ll spend my morning driving to the other dealership for the swap.
If everything is in fact fair in love and war, then this is a case where it is both love and war! Your love for customer retention & acquisition must be so strong that your war on your competitors has to be absolutely fierce.
Because guards will scope out destinations in advance, they often know exactly how to enter and exit locations without fumbling for directions or dealing with site security. That’s why, according to Moyer, CEOs and celebrities can actually get more done during a work day. “If I’m taking you to Warner Bros., I know which gate to go in, I’ve got credentials ahead of time, and I know where the bathrooms are.” Doing more in a day means more money—which means a return on the security investment.
It’s also worth noting that a large majority of luxury car customers live in large cities like NYC or LA. This goes to show that for luxury car customers, it isn’t so much the need for a car (we’re looking at you, LA traffic) but rather the prestige of owning a luxury vehicle.

The most interesting thing about Tesla — the niche luxury electric car maker — is the role of marketing in selling electric cars that cost $100,000 or more. Many people have tried to change the auto industry over the last 40 years and none have succeeded. The process of buying a car is essentially the same as it was a generation ago. And the process has remained unpopular for decades: the typical car dealer receives just 2 or 3 stars on Yelp.

Every car we sell used or new, is cleaned for delivery. At our dealership, this means a hand wash, vacuuming, sticker removal, window cleaning, spot cleaning the interior as needed, and a quick spray wax. The BEST thing you can do after buying a car, is give the dealer a few hours to get it prepped.
Taken as a whole, innovation-related challenges are reshaping traditional auto industry structures and relationships — in particular, by threatening the existing distribution of profits and the boundaries between OEMs and Tier One or Tier Two suppliers, as well as between automotive and tech companies. Some suppliers will fold, as their business goes away completely, and others will struggle because changes in technology content will bring OEMs or non-automotive suppliers into their markets as new competitors. Decisions about investments and industry alliances that are being made now will determine the dominant positions of tomorrow.
One of the big reasons I don’t want to buy a new car is because the car loses so much value the moment I drive it off the lot. I just have trouble justifying the massive expense when I can find a year old used car for something like 30% less. Are there any benefits to buying a new car that offset that depreciation?
Let’s face it; at one point or another, your TV-watching experience has unfortunately been interrupted by a low-budget local car dealership commercial featuring some owner yelling special deals at a rate so fast that it’s hard to process. Needless to say, these types of advertisements aren’t very effective; if anything, advertisements like that put their dealership on your list of places to avoid.
Our next 2017 State of Automotive Marketing excerpt post will explore auto marketing trends related to 2017 automotive marketing analytics and ROI — two very important marketing considerations auto dealers everywhere.
Yes and no. When you sell a Lamborghini, you could make about 1/4-1/6 of what a “top salesman” at other “mainstream” dealerships make in commission for the year; however it is rare, unless you live someplace like Miami (but even then the competition is steep), to sell many exotic cars in a year. It is also very boring to sell exotic cars because most of your time is spent prospecting, cold calling, and twiddling your thumbs. How boring is that?! Plus you can never accurately predict your income and would have to save your commission from a sale until you sell another… exotic cars is just a very stressful sales position unless you have another job or own the dealership itself. Much better to sell a luxury brand higher than Honda or Toyota (such as Volkswagen, Audi, BMW, Subaru, Mercedes, Lexus, or Infiniti) because you’ll sell WAY more units, have consistency, and be busy all month long.
Koenig sells about 90 new and used vehicles a month. He says radio and TV get the lion’s share of his ad budget to compete in his market, which is heavily tilted toward working families, college students from nearby Southern Illinois University and lower-income demographics.
Local carmakers are slowly chipping away at the dominance of foreign brands in the Chinese car market. Moreover, they have gained the most ground when it comes to sales of non-traditional vehicles, including sports utility vehicles (SUVs) and New Energy Vehicles (NEVs). As such, they are well-placed to benefit from new rules that seek to bolster demand in the NEV market and tie carmakers to strict sales quotas.
Hey I tried the email but it did not work. My question is when parents or anyone for that matter come in shopping for there son/daughter or whoever. What is the best way to approach this situation? What is your main goal for this situation seeing that they are not going to buy the car until the person they are “shopping” for is also there in person. Thank you for your time and help.
The cost of fixing things comes out of the gross profit as a “come back” so yes, the salesman probably lost money on it, as did the dealership. We usually don’t get paid until 2 to 3 weeks later. The service department doesn’t care, because they’re getting paid by the sales (imagine that the Front of House operates as a customer for the Back of House).
If you like the car, consider having it inspected by a mechanic before you buy it. If you don’t have a mechanic, Google and Yelp are good places to read local shops’ reviews. A pre-purchase inspection costs about $100 and can alert you to problems you may not find yourself. It’s a smart investment.
