Automotive Sales Reps – Are You Sure You Want to Keep Selling Cars?

Why is it that you have decided to sell automobiles for a living? Is it because you are passionate about a certain make or model and just love sharing that with others? If so, good for you.But if you are only selling vehicles because that’s all you have ever tried to sell and are not really sure of what else is possible, I will let you in on a secret…There is an easier way to make money!Let’s look at the reality. You have to work outside in the cold of winter and the heat of summer on a car lot waiting for people to show up. Or, you spin your wheels hustling up leads of your own, and then have to close down your prospects on objection after objection and try to make them NOT feel pressured during the entire process. Do this for 60 to 70 hours a week and you might make around $300 per sale.I guess that wouldn’t be too bad if you could sell three vehicles per day, every day, six days a week. But we know that is probably not realistic for most people.Compare this to making money from your home computer…The difference will be that your hours are completely flexible since the internet is accessible for your prospects 24 hours a day. You can also work from the comfort of your home in the cold of winter, or poolside in the heat of summer, or from your laptop while traveling the world.You will still be selling, but you will only be dealing with interested prospects that are already looking for what you have to offer. Your system will do 90% of the selling and presenting for you an in some cases even close your deals for you.You can also build in your own referral system, as well as recurring income from existing clients. You can also have the potential to make a much higher commission per sale. The list goes on and on.If you love selling cars just for the sake of your passion about the industry, keep doing what you love. But if you are tired of it and are looking for something different, take another look at running your own online business.As you research different opportunities, don’t believe the hype that you will be rich overnight doing nothing with an online business. You still need to work your business. If you want to only make an extra $100 to $300 per week you could possibly get away with only putting in 30 minutes a day provided you are very efficient with your time and do the right activities.But if you want to replace the income you make from automotive sales, you should treat your home business like a sales career and still work hard. Maybe even put in the same amount of time that you put in selling cars until you really get things moving and then cut back on your hours once your residual income is sufficient.Take your time and find a good product or service to sell, a good company that will support you and not charge you a fortune to get involved, a good compensation plan that will reward you for your efforts, and a good sponsor or mentor to walk you through the process step by step.Good luck!

Used Volvo – Buying One at an Automotive Auction

When it comes to purchasing a Volvo, many people these days are opting for a Used Volvo instead of a new one. With so many quality lease returns and trade ins and unfortunately, repossessions, purchasing a used car is a perfect way to get a good vehicle with many years left in it, for a great price. However, these days there are plenty of ways a person can purchase a used car. If you are in the market for a used car, you will do well to find out the places where the best deals can be had on a used car.One place where you can find a used car is through an auto auction. Usually you will find a sizeable auto auction near you. Many auto auctions are only open to dealers; however, there are many auctions that are open to the public as well. If you are looking for a used Volvo, this might be the best place to a great deal on a Volvo.While an auto auction might be a great place for a great deal on a Used Volvo, there are some things that you will need to be aware of. Firstly, you have probably heard the commercials where people said they got the car of their dreams at an auction, a BMW for $1000 or a like new Mercedes Benz For $2000. While this can happen, it is rare. At auction, there is a reason a car will sell for this low a price and usually you will not want it. While deals are good at a public option, that pennies on the dollar price is not likely to happen very often.Another downside is that you really do not know what you are getting. You might buy a jem in your Used Volvo; you also might get a hard driven and highly neglected car. The truth is that you never know. Unless you are handy with cars, you will want to be aware of this before you purchase anything.While there are some things you will need to consider if you are buying a Used Volvo from an auction, the reality is that you can get a great deal on a good car. A lower mileage car is good to look for in these instances and much better than being swayed by a car that looks good on the outside, looks can be deceiving. If you take your time, and know what to look for a good deal can wait you at an auction.

Automotive Gasoline Price Gouging Laws as an Anti-Capitalist Tool for Price Controls Considered

Price Gouging laws seem to break a fundamental principle of free-markets and that is the intrinsic value of anything is indeed, what someone will pay for it. If water is scarce after an Earthquake in San Francisco, which demolishes Nancy Pelosi’s district then water will have to be brought in from elsewhere at an extremely high cost. This cost should be allowed to be passed onto the consumer so the business person does not have to bite the bullet or go broke trying to help people.Next, let’s talk about congress setting price gouging laws. If one gasoline station is too high, then they will have to adjust their prices down to meet the other companies otherwise they might be called a price gouger. Some citizens think this is cool, but if that company cannot produce it as cheaply and is forced to sell it at a lower price, they cannot re-invest in tools to increase efficiencies to compete in the market. This gives advantages to whoever is left as they go out of business.Fewer choices will add to higher prices for consumers, causing the exact opposite of the intended desire. Further if each gas station is setting prices to each other, then they are breaking the “price fixing” rules, so either they are violating the price fixing rules or the price gouging rules. Thus all gasoline stations and companies are breaking the law, one or the other, you see?Although I am no originator of the thought, I hold with Ayn Rand that what will eventually happen if Congress and the FTC keeps sticking their noses into free-markets on behalf of socialist minded mass media incited masses to look like they are doing something, then eventually no one will be selling fuel, there will be none available.If you think this comment is way off base, I could see it happening with the bouquet fuels and mandatory ethanol usage after periods of crop failures from droughts or flooding. You know we really need to get Congress some economic lessons and level the FTC to deal with consumer baby-food issues. Think on it.
