    30 is the new 8

    The salesperson that used to sell his or her 8 cars and hang right in the middle of the pack is now selling 30 cars a month. 30 units delivered is the new 8 at significantly impacted-by-COVID-response dealerships. And I think this is a positive! This is obviously a dramatic change happening...

    Dealersocket <> Adpearance Inc. dba Four Eyes

    :iagree: with this. And wish to address the idea of charging other vendors obnoxious fees for data access. This is not specifically targeted at DealerSocket, but the practice as a whole. I put this out there for dealers to understand just how much they are being... well there isn't a better...

    PR & News Virtual Pasch DMSC event July 13-15th

    Brian Pasch is taking DMSC virtual this year. The number of speakers is bigger and it looks like you'll be able to attend every session because they'll be available for a month. No travel commitment. When he asked me to participate, it was a no-brainer. Plus, so many of our community and...

    Do you think consumers are rethinking car sharing and ride-hailing services?

    People always gravitate to the most convenient thing. COVID-19 fears are not what they were and the knee-jerk reactions will subside over the summer. This fall will be interesting as the elections are going to take center stage. I do predict the places with continued quarantine measures will...

    Who is kicking ass again? (after COVID)

    :iagree: some dealers have figured out how to handle things in this new environment. Some are still fighting for their phones and printers :rolleyes: The ones that are doing well are doing it with talent (imagine that). The ones I have spoken to claim they kept the people who were more...

    3rd Party Lead Providers Cost Post-COVID

    :ltbulb: That explains it. LA is practicing the most extreme COVID response. Yes, you are in a VASTLY different situation. I look forward to the day when Los Angeles can get back to acting like the rest of the United States. My brother lives there.

    Do You Leave the Dealership License Plate Frame On or Off?

    Some dealers go a bit too far with it. There is one in Vermont who used to put 2 license plate frames, mud flaps, a sticker on the trunk, and then a giant vinyl on the top of the rear window all advertising the dealer’s name... which wasn’t a fun name to begin with. It looked like every car was...

    Duplicate leads rock!

    There once was a time when we could get refunds on leads, so we pushed our CRMs to focus on saving us money by automating duplicate lead reports back to third party lead providers. The CRMs knocked this out of the park! We felt secure that our third party lead bills were correct (mostly)...

    COVID Conspiracies

    I have heard hospitals are given "assistance money" based on the number of COVID-19 cases they are dealing with. One doctor claimed that assistance is tripled if the patient was on a ventilator.
