I don’t know about playing them against each other, but if there are two, tell them you’re shopping against one another up front. Just say “X offered me this on this vehicle, can you match it?” See, at Mitsu, I could go into dealer inventory, see what the OTHER dealerships had, and compare. If you wanted that specific color / package combo, and HADN’T contacted the other store, I’d try and work a dealer trade with them and make the deal at mine. If it was not the exact same match, I’d work within reason. So yeah, it doesn’t hurt to be up front. Once you announce your intentions, it sets the tone for the negotiations, and then YOU’RE in control.

Hey guys for anyone looking to get in the car business I would highly recommend it. You definitely can not be lazy and you need to know how to be productive during the slow days/hours. I got into the business right when I turned 18 and now I am 20 selling 20 cars a month making around 10k a month. But you have to answer the phones, have great follow up and not afraid to take ups. I am just honest with customers and if they are looking at a car that I know doesn’t suit them I advise them to switch cars even if the gross is smaller on the other vehicle. Also, always ask for reviews on google mentioning your name. I am by all means no vet and learn something everyday. But personally love the business!

Strategy 1. Think big and audit your time. No matter the size of your business, place a mental image in your mind as if you are the largest and most successful person in your industry.

Spend more time with more important tasks such as marketing strategies, improving customer relations, and implementing new strategies to expand your services.
Eye contact creates a connection, and when you’re purposely or subconsciously avoiding that contact, it creates a disconnect with customers. There’s a happy medium, though, because too much eye contact can seem too intense and condescending. Aim to make eye contact about 30-60% of the time during a conversation — more when listening, less when speaking.
Utilize apps that can help your customers locate the specific car to meet their needs without having to go through your entire lot. Sit down with them, pull up your inventory through the app, and have them plug-in all of their criteria. In return, they’ll get a list of vehicles to look at and you won’t have to use any sales tactics to have them look at your inventory.
