Dealerships Have Excellent Ways To Drive Customers To Their Store

Auto dealerships continue to struggle to attract local consumers to their stores with the increase in marketing channel competition. The problems range from other brand competition to competition from within the brand. Other sources include in-brand marketing channels from Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3. This doesn’t mean dealerships cannot find marketing channels to drive consistent leads to their stores. As digital marketing continually changes, it is about being flexible by making changes to existing marketing plans and take advantage of the newer tools. Alternatively, revise how an existing marketing channel is being used. Consumer Car Buying Habits Informed consumers are, of course, an additional dilemma for dealerships. Local consumers spend more time researching brands, models, vehicle reviews on the Internet before they become a showroom walk-in. The consumers read vehicle reviews, ask for advice on social media from friends and family, and compare vehicle specifications. Showroom walk-ins have become a problem in terms of marketing channel attribution. These informed consumers do not call, make an appointment, complete an online form or send an email. They just walk-in! Autotrader’s 2016 consumer car buying journey is a clear sign of how shopping for cars has changed over the decades. Cox [...]

SmartOne for Auto Dealership Marketing To Local Consumers

Auto Dealership Marketing to local consumers has changed over the years. The marketing process is primarily in the digital marketing channels and the competition around these channels is high. Tier 1, Tier 2 and Tier 3 are all competing in the same marketing channels making the process difficult for any one individual dealership. What if there is another way of reaching targeted consumers? If you think you’ve tried something like SmartOne for auto dealership marketing before you’d be wrong. SmartOne differs because it is entirely managed by a digital marketing agency and not just a technology provider. Digital agencies manage the strategy, processes and analyze results.

Is your gratitude LIGHT on?

Hello, my friends! Okay, another way to tap into gratitude. Here is a question for you. How did I get so lucky? The question, “how did I get so lucky?” Wow, what that does is open up a space where you can acknowledge something that has come in, usually light. And it also allows us to then see more clearly how we were the contribution to it, how others may have been a contribution to it, just the lightness of what gratitude can be and that energy of gratitude. Wow, how did I get so lucky? When it comes to gratitude, there's no way to NOT be lucky! Gratitude opens us up to the possibility of receiving more... more out of lives as well as from the Universe.

Seasoning Your Learning Fare with Cross-Generational Mentoring

Cross-generational mentoring is an excellent way to keep your Lean company ahead of the curve. Ken Blanchard, Chief Spiritual Officer of The Ken Blanchard Companies, a highly respected leadership coaching organization, attributes much of his success to cross-generational mentoring. In the May 2017 CLM.com newsletter, Blanchard reminds us that “given the accelerating pace of change, people can be great at what they’re doing today and be out of business tomorrow.”[1] Blanchard, who is now in his late seventies, chose Claire Diaz-Ortiz, a 33-year-old former Twitter executive, as his co-author to write One Minute Mentoring. How many septuagenarians today would attempt to use Twitter effectively without asking a younger computer-savvy person for help? Blanchard’s classic Lean statement is worth memorizing: “The only job security any of us has is a commitment to continuous improvement.”[2] Many Lean organizations have already learned that cross-generational mentoring is basic to Kaizen, or ongoing improvement. Although the younger generation can deliver the “wings”—futuristic versions of Lean’s strategies and techniques—without the older generation’s “body” of tested and proven results, the work remains both incomplete and unsubstantial. One of the key elements of Lean Learning is flexibility. Commitment to perceive the value of change when necessary automatically builds [...]

How important is a manufacturing apprentice program?

If a manufacturing apprentice program is not one of the items on your company’s list of potential improvements, after learning about its many advantages you may wish to consider implementing one. In last week’s blog, we quoted Tooling U-SME Learning and Performance Improvement Leader (LPI) John Hindeman’s six reasons for starting a manufacturing apprentice program, as outlined in an article that appeared in the February 8, 2017 Tooling U-SME edition. Previously, we pointed out that college and other programs of higher learning may give students a textbook education, but before they’re ready to go out in the world and earn a living, first they must acquire practical skills and workplace experience. Advanced degree or certification programs are often costly; the media is filled with stories about college graduates over their heads in student loan debt long after becoming successful well-paid professionals. For most young people with limited financial resources, on-site apprentice programs certainly seem like a preferable option. According to Hindeman, upon discovering that apprenticeships lead to better employees, many high-performance companies implemented their own in-house manufacturing apprentice programs. The following are the final three reasons for starting an apprentice program: It seems highly impractical to invest your time, money [...]
