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!
