Phone Skills Amplify Your Marketing With Cecil Bullard [E045]

Marketing can do a lot to bring new leads to your auto repair shop, but it’s up to the people answering the phones to turn them into customers. We’ve seen quite a few times where one of our clients says their marketing isn’t working, but the numbers don’t lie. Their marketing was working but their phone skills were just plain bad. Good marketing with poor phone skills equals wasted money. Our guest today is Cecil Bullard from the Institute for Automotive Business Excellence. Cecil teaches phone skills to service advisors that make a tremendous positive impact on the shops they serve. Cecil shares some of his knowledge of how to turn shoppers into clients for life.
