Car Dealerships are struggling with internet leads...
Lacking follow-up
99% of sales teams are good at one thing: hitting the hot lead on the head as soon as it comes in. The problem is, most online car shoppers are not sending leads & buying in the same afternoon.

Your team is left with hundreds, even thousands of unqualified inbound leads you know nothing about. All you know, is that they have an interest for a vehicle you sell. It's true for new & for pre-owned. 

The average dealership turns around 10% of leads into sales. But what happens with the other 90%, can you imagine what the impact would be if you could get the number to 15, 18 or even 20%+? This is what sets the best apart, a perfect follow-up system.
Poor efficiency
Handling internet leads is a real challenge. Most dealership sales team struggle with handling leads efficiently & constistently. If you ever had your team handle inbound leads, you already know performance, response time & reply rate are inconsistent. 

You can't escape the fact that people are shopping online before making a decision, and that the pre-showroom activities are vital to any business trying to increase sales.
Overhead expenses
For most dealerships and dealer groups, BDCs are overhead expenses. Having a team outside your sales team booking appoitments can be a burden on your revenues. Turnover, training, holidays & other HR-related issues can quickly make your operation tank. 

Truth is, the BDC concept is a necessary evil since your sales team generally don't have the DNA to follow-up with customers on the long-term. But it still remains yet another reason why profits are going down.
Inconsistent Results
Keeping appointment & in-store closing ratios high is really hard. You must have a flawless process in place to ensure maximum efficiency. Even if you do, it's just a matter of time before it goes down again.

Car dealerships face a hard reality: high turnover. Constant onboarding & training can kill your business. Plus, salespeople don't like handling internet leads that much. Finding the perfect sales team that loves handling these type of deals is almost impossible.
Suffering Mindset
Salespeople tend to get discouraged by internet leads. It's simply not in their DNA to handle email and phone. Since more & more people are shopping and making decisions online, shouldn't you make sure you're at your best?

This results in poor follow-up, leading to little or no sales. This is costing your business a lot of money over time, as you are most likely spending thousands on fixed costs & advertising every month.
Numbers are only getting worse!
Nationwide, lead to sale performance is getting lower every year. Think you found the formula to barely make it work? Well, sorry to break it down to you, but you'll be running a deficient BDC next year if you keep up the pace...
We decided to approach the problem differently...
