What does it mean to show up as an auto salesperson? In short: Consistency in every area: |
Be consistent in preparation. Prepare your lot, office, collateral, and most importantly, yourself so that everything is in a position to be the best possible version of itself. Then, prepare your goals for the day, week, and month–make sure they are clear. Write them down where you will see them every day. Lastly, using forethought, prepare for success with customers, coaching, and training.
Be consistent in action. Focus! Remember your sales script. Offer up questions and utilize transitions for a smooth sales process. Be active in scheduling prospective and follow-up calls. Get in the habit of tackling all of your follow-up emails at the same time. If you find that traffic is slow, don’t just twiddle your thumbs, tie up loose-ended reports and be a superachiever with newly-assigned work.
Be consistent in your reflections. How well are you performing? Measure your results on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. For each skill or goal, write down what has and hasn’t worked. Make a habit of evaluating what you say, how you said it, and whether you can improve. Remember not to dwell on circumstances like prices or features. Own your sales process!
If you become and remain consistent in your approach to your profession, then you will find consistency in your results so that you can make 2014 the year you earn what you’re worth, as Jason Forrest says!
