Car Salesman – The True Business Model

Jan 11

With the focus lately so heavily on business to business communication the fundamentals of relationships have been lost. Yesterday my good friend Benjamin reminded me of what importance we, as a younger generation have on the future of good business practices. Not knowing how profound this statement would be to me he said, “the major problem with such a heavy focus on business to business is you lose the person to person communication”. Immediately I thought of our profession as car salesman (sales people) and how the stigma that surrounds us is not one of people who thrive and survive on relationships. Large corporations have as of late been promoting their strengths of fast, efficient, cutting edge business and this model has been adopted by many small companies, but this idea is fundamentally unsustainable.
Hand Shake
Now for the truth; business is about relationships and people, not connectivity of two industries. We must remember the value of the people involved and not the bottom line. Good car salesman are great at building relationships and ultimately getting the client what he or she wants without the corporate mentality influencing the goal at hand. Something else that car salesman must be admired for is ultimately they are working for the customer at all times. From the moment they meet and greet, to the connection that is built, getting the client the product and even continuing the relationship. This is a perfect model of what must be brought back into the corporate world; taking care of the client is number #1!
Audi Social Media
Now to further this if you look Social Media is everywhere and often these large companies discourage this form of interaction with both co-workers and clientele alike, why? Why discourage the one thing that will maintain a long term connection with your clients with absolutely no cost or commitment, and where the sky is truly the limit? I wanted to say thank you to all the other Audi Brand Specialists out there who represent the product and brand so well. There really are no limitations of building connections and keeping that bond strong and it will ultimately benefit you and your business alike. Keep up the great work and make sure to stay focused on the one thing that matters to be successful, the client.

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

2. Safety

Why die, when you can live?

Brought to you by the company that pioneered safety standards and crash testing almost 100 years ago, with Audi there is no compromise in safety.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

We build vehicles that will truly win races and pick up the groceries on the way home. If you let an Audi tell you it's story, it will never disappoint or disconnect you from the experience.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

Whether you go with a new Audi and get a 4-year 50k mile warranty, or the certified pre-owned Audi with the most comprehensive 300 + point inspection and up to 6 years, 100k miles, you will not only get the best car on the market,
you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
