Introduce Yourself to the Forum

I’m George and I’m new to the industry. After specializing in marketing and selling print, radio and internet ad packages to retail businesses for the last nine years, I began selling Kia’s a month ago. My first six "ups" I sold 5 cars. My next 16 I sold 0. I’m learning as I go and am grateful for this site and looking forward to what I can learn from those of you with way more experience than I have.

I do love the business, even the long hours. Not so crazy about shoveling all the snow off the cars and moving them back and forth but you do what you have to do right?


Let Me Introduce Myself

My name is Mike Whitty, president of Salesperson, Inc.. I’ve been training vehicle salespeople and managers for over 20 years. The first 8 years in business I specialized in large group seminars for the manufacturers, while continuing to develop various training products. In 1990 I wrote my first book, "The Complete Guide to Selling New Cars", and since then have enjoyed selling my programs on the internet.

Aside from training salespeople and managers, I specialize in helping dealerships develop their Internet Departments. Since I’ve been successfully selling my products on the internet since 1995, I feel like I have a grasp of what it takes for a dealership to be successful in internet sales.
