B: Buying is Better than Selling
Let's face it; car buying is all about 2 elements: Getting Consumers to your dealership website, then getting them to buy from you either online or in your car dealership. No matter if it's a phone call, internet lead, chat, or text lead; sales success hinges on process. There is a saying, "Show me something I am more interested in buying than you are interested in selling." This is how our industry should view process in order to provide the best consumer experience possible. Instead of viewing it as traditional sales process, we really should be viewing it as a car buying process.

Jennifer Boland started her career as a Kirby Vacuum salesperson at 18 years old. Within 3 months she was promoted because she had quickly become a top producer and began hiring and training people to sell Kirby vacuums. This proved to be a great training ground for the car business! In 1999 she began selling cars and ended up working for a company with an outside call center "BDC" for car dealers. She decided that she could help stores set-up their own BDCs and went to work starting more than a few BDCs for dealers before striking out on her own in 2007. After setting up many BDCs, she evolved her business model to help dealers close more of the leads they were getting, focusing on implementing a process that would support a higher closing ratio, with or without a BDC.
In 2009, her company partnered with Now Marketplace, Inc., which focuses on Digital Marketing and web site conversions and together, they partner to help 75+ dealers sell more cars off the Internet by increasing their lead volume, improving their Internet presence and/or adjusting and supporting their process and helping them accomplish their Best Internet Presence Ever.
From high-quality website traffic, award winning car leads, and data-driven audience retargeting to a laser focus on technology and expanding product lines, we help our industry partners grow their customer base, close more deals, and sell more cars.
