    Hey @jon.berna@jon.berna - was just thinking in regards to a lease penetration thread that it would be interesting to come up with a few buckets we could divide certain brands into. To the best of my knowledge, the companies sitting on these numbers don't publicize them by brand too often. They just publicize a few outliers.

    For example:
    1. If one bucket contained brands that don't traditionally lease well like Hyundai and Kia it could be the lower-penetrating brands bucket.
    2. And then the next tier might be Toyota, Honda, Ford, etc. where we have the average-penetrating bucket.
    3. Finally the BMW, Mercedes, Cadillac zone where nearly every deal that isn't cash is a lease.

    With those buckets in place we could look at the dealers who are outliers. What are they doing differently? Are there any commonalities? Can we get them to participate on DealerRefresh? Take it to a whole new level!

    Wow Jon, This is cool! I take it that EACH dot is a sales rep that plots how many sales the rep made and how many leads they consumed. Correct?

    If I am correct (dot = # of sales from 1 rep & # of leads that rep used) then this chart fires off this idea...
    upload_2018-11-1_8-3-22.png
    Where
    A = 80% of all reps (i.e. the 8 a month'er)
    B = Reps burning thru leads with aweful closing ratios
    C = Reps burning thru leads with higher closing ratios
    D = RockStars​

    If selling cars is a team sport, then A, B, C & D are all a product of management's skills.
    • B&C happen when a GSM/GM never looks at reporting
    • A is every dealer's sales training challenge
    • D is every dealer's dream team.
    ALGO IDEA: Each store has a collection of reps that when put on a plot graph like this create a pattern. This pattern is a profile that sees the high-level strengths and weaknesses of the team and the leadership. It can tell you things like:
    • Advertising ROI is directly tied to the dealer's pattern/profile.
    • Which may cause a dealer to realize
      • "Adding more leads is NOT your problem...
      • Moving leads from reps in B&C to reps in A&D will get you more sales
    • etc...

    That was fun! Jon, I eye-balled the grid, if you run with this idea, it'll be interesting what else you'll find.
