Analytics Edge: Bridging Marketing & Sales Making Dealership’s MILLIONS

Today’s market conditions of pinched sales volume and record setting grosses are making dealerships get comfortable.

The current market is a perfect storm for bad habits to emerge if you don’t have the right approach. But the money is good now, right? So why worry?

Dealership’s enrolled in the Analytics Edge are using their data to navigate today’s market while improving dealership performance.

Dealerships Are Printing Money, So Why Would You Change Anything?

This little write up expands on our recent “mention” in Adweek thanks to the Head of Automotive for Facebook, Bob Lanham. NADA is forecasting 2022 will be the most profitable year ever for dealerships, as inventories remain at near-record-low levels.

There is money POURING into your dealership’s bank accounts. You’re making stupid money.

You are literally running a money press in your finance office.

I get it – there’s not a lot of pain when you’re making more per copy than EVER before.

BUT – Even though you’re printing money, my question is the same…

“Do you think you SHOULD be making more? Not could… Should.”

I think you should. You should make more now AND in the future too.

Dealerships across the country have never had this much difficulty maintaining inventory levels than they are right now.

Based on the conversations I’ve had with 75 different dealerships in the past year alone, I can imagine that your dealership is probably dealing with extremely low inventory too.

Wouldn’t it be nice to buy an extra 5-20 cars per month for an average of 54% less than what you can buy from the auction while making more gross than auction cars?

AND have the local community deliver these opportunities to your front steps to have the exclusive opportunity to buy them before your competition can?
