Auto Sales an Art AND a Skill
Rembrandt was considered one of the greatest painters in European history. Do you know who Pieter Lastman or Jacob van Swanenburgh were? Rembrandt apprenticed under each of them.
What’s that got to do with car and RV sales people? Nothing. And everything. Everything, that is, if you want to be a top income earner. To be a Rembrandt you need coaching. You need sales training. You need practice to develop your style, your talent, your selling techniques.
The art is the finesse. For prospective buyers, it is bringing to reality what works for them without manipulation, without shady tactics or tricks. Professional selling technique is the ability to listen intently, ask relevant value adding questions, and package it all in a vehicle that meets the prospect’s needs and budget.
