When an individual makes the commitment to become an automobile salesperson, he receives very little, if any, training. Although training and development programs are slowly gaining importance in the industry, it takes more than what is currently being offered to adequately prepare the salesperson for today's market.
It actually takes a lot of skill for an individual to become organized. I'm not just talking about scheduling your appointments so you can go to lunch at the same time every day. I'm referring to organizing every part of your life in order to achieve a "better you!"
■ GOAL SETTING
There is nothing more exciting than setting a goal and achieving it. However, knowing how to do this successfully requires skill, patience, and training. If an individual does not set goals, his income will be determined by luck, instead of skill.
■ BEING NEW
If you are a new recruit who is starting automobile sales as a new career, you're probably feeling a little nervous and insecure. Starting anything new can be frightening unless you have a complete overview of what to realistically expect. By understanding your responsibilities in advance, you will know which tasks to learn, and what kind of goals to set.
These are just a few of the reasons why I have written The Complete Guide To Selling New Cars. As you thumb through the chapters, you will find everything you need to give you a better than average chance for success in automobile sales. Just as the title indicates, this book is meant to be a "guide."
It is meant to counsel and direct you in a path that fits your needs. It is not meant to be the only course you follow. I wrote this book to stimulate your yearning for education.
Every person should strive to be the best that he can be, no matter what the challenge. It is your responsibility to educate yourself, and not wait for someone to do it for you. With the vast array of books, seminars, and educational and motivational materials available to you, it is your obligation to strive for excellence. I hope The Complete Guide To Selling New Cars will help you accomplish your goals.
