Accelerate Car Sales with Top-Notch Automobile Consulting

No matter how great your dealership team and management might be, no one knows everything. Knowledge is assembled from deep experience and expertise, and specialization is becoming increasingly important for success. If you don’t seek wisdom from outsiders, you’ll find your business in the dangerous position of not knowing what you don’t know! 

So, how does the smart owner expand their business’s knowledge base? Training your team is an ongoing concern, and the programs you select need to deliver real-world results to recoup your investment. Plus, with the industry changing so quickly, it’s imperative to stay on top of evolving trends and new strategies to stand out from the competition. 

Automobile consulting companies are often the best way to keep your business one step ahead of the game. The smart owner or GM looks for agencies that are founded and run by industry experts with a long history in selling who will work one-on-one with your team until they’ve completely absorbed the latest cutting-edge techniques. We’ll help you figure out what to look for in a partner agency, as well as what to avoid!

Real Learning Takes Time

Like it or not, learning and implementing new skills takes time. Single training sessions can be an efficient way to disseminate large volumes of information quickly. However, without being able to confirm that it’s being effectively deployed, these approaches often can’t make a dent in your bottom line. That’s why they often cost less than long-term individual coaching strategies: you’re getting a promise, not a product. 

The best automobile consulting agencies know the real secrets are mentorship and coaching that takes place over weeks, not days. Also, look for companies that work directly with employees in one-on-one sessions. This ensures your team members learn at a comfortable pace and get tips that apply directly to them. 

They’ll Create Materials Just for You

Training materials, phone scripts, and anything else automobile consulting agencies offer should be created in-house and customized specifically for your business. After all, you’re hiring them to get results that separate your dealership from the pack. That’s why partnering with companies that recycle the same scripts over and over means you’ll have to do the heavy lifting for your brand yourself. Worse, you’ll be indistinguishable since your customer service and sales reps will sound just like other dealerships!

Avoid Group Sessions, Embrace One-on-One Coaching

An expert automobile consulting firm understands that your salespeople work as a team, but they’re only as strong as their individual weaknesses. There are always big-picture changes your team can make as a whole, but the vast majority of improvements come down to coaches and individual salespeople working one-on-one. 

That’s why an expert automotive consulting firm should be prepared to work with a variety of different learning styles. It makes sense that the most effective, efficient automobile consulting happens when the material and instructional procedures can be adapted to best meet an individual’s personal needs.

The agency you hire should provide a structure for short, efficient training sessions with each member of your team. They should also work to help them customize phone scripts to suit their own sales techniques and provide ongoing feedback and touchups to make sure it sticks. 

Finally, timing is important, too. Meet too often, and there’s not enough time to absorb the materials. Too infrequently, and the training loses momentum as people forget between sessions. Short, weekly appointments strike a nice balance, and they won’t interfere with your daily workload. 

Work from Real Sales Experiences

Hypotheticals can be helpful, but they’re usually light on specifics. To increase sales, automobile consultants need to understand what your sales team needs help with at your dealership, and that means building feedback and training off of real customer interactions. 

Mystery shops are a benchmark for phone sales analysis and coaching that provide a training partner with instant insight into where your team can improve and capitalize on revenue-generating opportunities. They allow coaches to experience your dealership’s phone service just as any regular customer does, and the examiner can ask pertinent follow-up questions, probe deeper, test for very specific things, and give you a much more detailed list of actionable items to improve your business.

The best training agencies perform their own mystery shops and follow up with employees to improve their game.
