The Average Weekly Unsolicited Calls from Vendors
There are over 17,000 new car dealers in the United States and a few thousand vendors providing products and services to those dealers. That means the sales teams of those vendors are reaching out to dealers every day. And while the products and services being offered may be of real value to the dealer, and will benefit their business, dealers don’t often have time to give the vendor a fair hearing on their offering. This means both dealers and vendors are missing opportunities.
That’s where we enter the picture. With our TOP CHOICE VENDOR solution we act as an agent of the dealership to filter, review, qualify and help vendors connect with dealerships who want and need their products and services.
When it comes to the business needs of a dealership there is no “one size fits all” solution. Markets, budgets, resources, staffing, advertising expenditures, and inventory needs vary. This means a service that does well in Baltimore, Maryland or Chicago, Illinois might not be a good fit in Benton, Arkansas.
Our program creates a profile of each participating dealership. We analyze their current business processes, staffing, and look at the products, services, and marketing that are in place now. We ask a lot of questions to gauge their appetite for using new technology or services and observe what we feel are strengths and weaknesses in their operations.
At Dealers Marketing Network, we are not high paid consultants doing on-sight, in-depth analysis, and charging thousands of dollars. We do an assessment from information provided and through phone calls with the ownership or management team. This helps us understand our client’s needs and to make a good recommendation on which vendors they should consider utilizing.
We work in conjunction with management to become your virtual Marketing Department. We look for ways to help our clients increase efficiency, improve customer traffic, recruit and retain employees, raise their visibility online and in social media channels, and even help craft marketing programs that engage local community opportunities. All this is part of the monthly fee for our services.
