    1 - Unresponded to internet leads

    2 - Leads that have been responded to but make me think "OMG, why did you send that?"

    3 - Someone with admin privileges decides to send an "email blast" to 15K customers at once.

    4 - Cars priced $XXK over market but is a "used car special"!!

    That's just for starters :)

    Nightmares. Our IT department put a policy in place to avoid this at all costs. As the Marketing manager, this is my #1 fear - no matter who is sending out that email blast.

    1. "Call For Price" on both New and Used cars.
    2. Floor Ups that have a 100% close rate.
    3. Live chats that don't get replied to.
    4. Marketing campaigns that are almost identical EVERY SINGLE MONTH.

    How about the that room in the dealership that houses the collection of old and new connections..

    The brochure closet that also doubles as the key room, collection of POS material, snow rakes, and everything else that can fit in there...
