When you are a car sales professional one of the best car salesman tips you will ever hear is that you need to think of yourself as a business inside a business. When you think about it you really are operating as a business because in most cases your car salesman income will be a car salesman commission. If you don’t sell any cars, you won’t make any money.

Car Salesman Tips - Your Business

Car Salesman Tips – Your Business

A career in car sales can be very lucrative when you treat it like a business of your own. Just like you would in any business you are always working to make your customers happy, prospecting or advertising for new customers and staying in touch with your previous customers. When it’s your own business you control how much you earn, you decide how hard you are going to work and you decide how successful you will become. When it comes to tips for car salesmen, running your car sales career like a business will make it grow and prosper like any business.

The best part of having a business inside a business is that you do have to worry about doing all the other things a business owner has to do that takes them away from producing income. You won’t have to worry about accounting, payroll taxes or any of that stuff that will take you away from making money. You won’t have to take care of building maintenance or clean the bathrooms. (I know many small business owners that do) You can focus on selling cars. You can apply all your energy to being a car salesman or car sales woman, and we all know you can sell more vehicles when you are focused on success.

Hi JM,

At most dealerships you will get paid weekly and then bonuses get paid monthly.

Good attitude Nathan,

That right, by the time you get to them they are buyers.

I am officially into my second week of seeling cars today.
I have two on the books already and by the end of tomorrow I should have four.
i think that as a sales associate you should look for a dealership the same way you look for a partner.
It should reflect who you are and you should get back as much as you give.
Work as a unit not an individual. if everyone pulls their wait, you cant fail.

The hardest part is approching the customer. 98% of all people have pre-shopped online, so if they are in the dealership, they are there to buy.

Good Luck, and Go Get Em’
