KPM has heard that this is one of your dealership's toughest challenges right now. In fact, more than a few dealers have told us they've turned away service business, primarily due to difficulty finding and retaining small engine mechanics!
I'm sure you've heard the saying "Time is money." An overused cliche yes, but nonetheless its underlying meaning will always hold true. So, I ask you this: Is your outdoor power equipment dealership running efficiently, or is there room for improvement? With the limited resources that small- and medium-sized businesses operate on, efficiency becomes even more critical to maintaining and growing your profits. Here are three technologies that will help you become a more profitable and efficient outdoor power equipment dealership.
This past year, KPM worked with Alex Goldfayn to incorporate some of his Evangelist marketing ideas into our own business. One specific thing that Alex explains to his clients is how to incorporate client testimonials into your company’s communications.
Recently, Alex gave this webinar to his past and current clients as a kickoff for 2016. I wanted to share this with our blog readers. Maybe you can find value in Alex’s ideas for your own OPE business.
Highlights from the webinar include:
In today’s environment, technology is a vital part of most areas of business. So, it’s no wonder that business management systems (BMS) are making their way into outdoor power equipment dealerships. In fact, a high-quality BMS provides a competitive advantage to OPE dealers. Those using such a system are more accurate and responsive and are better able to meet customer demands.
This October, Louisville, Kentucky, hosted the annual GIE Expo, a premier outdoor power equipment industry event and one of the largest tradeshows in the U.S. The vast majority of companies in the industry attend each year, including manufacturers, distributors, dealers, landscapers and other end users. This year’s show was no exception. In fact, while some regional tradeshows struggle with attendance, the GIE Expo grew in 2015 to more than 21,000 people.
