What tools you need to be a good car salesman?
FIRST OF ALL, FIND A GOOD DEALERSHIP THAT DOESN'T HIDE COST, PAY, ETC. AN HONST DEALERSHIP WITH GOOD LEADERSHIP. SECOND, BE FRIENDLY, SELL YOURSELF NOT THE CAR! THIRD, FOLLOW UP WITH ALL YOUR CUSTOMERS AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH, EMAIL, CALL, LETTER ETC. ASK FOR REFERRALS! THIS IS HUGE, FAMILY, FRIENDS, CO WORKERS ETC. BE CLEAN, NEAT, ORGANIZED, AND INTELLIGENT. THE INTERNET IS MAKING THE BUERS MUCH MORE INTELLIGENT, SO KEEP UP WITH THE TIMES, IT AIN'T THE 80'S ANYMORE. PEOPLE KNOW WHAT CARS COST, SO DON'T BS THEM! BE HONEST AND UPFRONT, NO PUSHY HAVE THE CAR SOLD BEFORE YOU WALK IN THE SHOWROOM, ASK PRECLOSING STATEMENTS. HAVE FUN AND GOD BLESS!
