This is all about what good could look like, not what it has to look like. Let’s review the key takeaways from this video.
First, notice that Matthew, our sales consultant, provided Audrey with an IMMEDIATE response. And, his response covered all of Audrey’s questions and set expectations on next steps. Did you notice how he also shared a link to Mazda’s story about the origins of the Soul Red color?
The video was fun and engaging, and allows Matthew to let his personality come through in the initial exchange between him and Audrey.
Did you notice how Matthew was able to greet Audrey by name and made note of her time table by setting a timer on his phone? How about how he offered her another Diet Coke? These are more great examples of demonstrating care and attention to detail. Acting like this will help you build rapport with your customers right away.
Finally, he set expectations by telling Audrey where they were going to go next and what they were going to do. And remember to take the opportunities you have to share what makes your dealership and Mazda unique!
What did you see here that’s different from what you do today? How could the interaction have been even better?
