Due to countless dealers asking us if there was a way to maintain the high level of performance that began while we were in the dealership, we are pleased to announce our new MONTHLY TRAINING MEETINGS!
These meetings take place in dealerships across the country. Each of your sales staff can participate regardless of whether they had been through our initial training or not. Dealers receive a universal password for each member of their staff to log online to watch the meeting. Here's a few of the benefits to signing up:
If you and your delaership want some real training on a monthly basis without the expense of bringing in outside talent, this is the program for you. For a low $399 monthly fee, all of your people can attend every meeting. And if they miss, the meeting will be archived so they can view it at their convenience.
Email us for details at firstname.lastname@example.org and write "Monthly Training" in the subject line.
COMPARE HIRING COSTS
Assume you need 6 sales people added to your floor. You know the best way is to bring in an outside company but the cost is confusing. Most companies ask that you reimburse the students who attend class and last 60 – 90 days. You would pay them back the tuition they paid for training. The companies using that policy sell you on the fact that you have no risk unless they work out.
THE DEALER RESOURCE GROUP has a $0 net cost plan. The dealer is invoiced for the tuition from each student and the student agrees to pay the dealer back via payroll deduction. In six weeks, the dealer has been repaid for 100% of the training money invested. There are two benefits to this method other than the tremendous savings.
1. Talent isn’t missed due to the student not having tuition.
2. The dealer doesn’t train people who will never work for them.
Many talented people who could help your dealership are never hired on the student pay program simply because they don’t have the money. They never show up for class. Or, if the hiring company fails to disclose the tuition during the interview, the student quits when it’s announced during class. With THE DEALER RESOURCE GROUP PROGRAM, money is no longer an issue. Talent is the only concern.
With the other program, the trainers load the class with people to “play the odds.” These people are told that even if they don’t get the job at your store, they will be placed at another dealer. We would never use your facilities to train people for your competition.
But, let’s look at the potential cost to your dealership comparing both programs
The Dealer Resource Group (DRG) charges $1,350 for its advertising package. COMPANY A charges $1,395. DRG invoices the dealer $369 per hired student. COMPANY A charges $499 to each student whether the dealer hires them or not. If we assume that all 6 people remain in the dealership for at least 90 days, here is the total dealer cost:
DRG - $1,350 total cost because the students would have paid the dealer back within the first 6 weeks of employment. Total Investment: $1,350
COMPANY A - $1395 for advertising plus $499 for each student for a total of $2,994 + $1,395. Total investment: $4,389
If only half survive 90 days – In fairness, we’ll assume that the 3 who left were there at least 3 weeks. With DRG the costs would be $1,350 for advertising and $553.50 in uncollected tuition, for a total investment of $1,903.50. But if the students who left stayed for 4 or more weeks, the cost does go down. Or, if you simply reduced the amount of weeks to collect, from six down to 4 or 3, you would recover more of your investment faster.
With COMPANY A the costs would be $1,395 plus $499 each for the 3 students who remained for a total investment of $1,395 for advertising and $1,497 for reimbursing the remaining students for a total investment of $2,892.
Not only will you save an average of $1,000 - $3,000 per campaign using THE DEALER RESOURCE GROUP, you will also end up with higher quality people since talent was the criteria for hiring rather than an ability to pay.
The only way that COMPANY A and the other companies like them can be more cost effective is if 100% of the new hires quit. That presents a totally different issue. Our belief is that this can only happen when you are SOLD on which people to take.
Our team lets you choose the people you want to hire BEFORE THEY ARE EVEN INVITED TO TRAINING! That means we NEVER train people for your competition. But, the real benefit is, you choose people you feel fit your dealership personality and we train them.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS YOUR BOTTOM LINE
In today’s fast paced economy, it’s no longer cost effective to hire on your own. Too many risks, not enough time to interview and train properly, all make bringing in an outside expert the smart way to go. All things being equal, training quality, trainer experience, company stability, the only tie breaking factor would be the dealership outlay. That said, the only way The Dealer Resource Group is not cost effective versus the competition is if the campaign is a total failure and everyone quits on the first day.
Our training and recruiting programs have two levels of service. Each has specific benefits for the dealer. Selecting one over the other should be done with the assistance of one of our trainers or through contacting our corporate office.
OUR LOW RISK PROGRAM
This program allows the dealer to manage risk while being able to select the people who would be the best fit for the dealership. The dealer is responsible for the advertising package ($1,350.00), trainer expenses (hotel and transportation only), and the initial cost per hired sales person.*
You will receive custom designed advertising that will be posted each day before and during the campaign to make certain the ad is always on the first page of each sight. In addition:
OUR ALL INCLUSIVE PROGRAM
For dealers or dealer groups who have a large number of spots to fill. This program utilizes the same advertising campaign and generates the highest level of responses. The only difference is that the dealer costs are fixed regardless of the number of hires needed.
The total package even includes trainer expenses. For an investment of only $3850 you'll receive the same comprehensive advertising to nearly 100 job sites and portals, three complete days of training from one of our expert trainers and the ability to select the best of the best. No payroll deductions, no hassles or limits to hiring. That means, if you have a large number of slots to fill, (more than 6), this is the package for you. Dealers get the same level of training, none of the hassles of payroll deduction, and the ease of one check service. That means, if you have a need for more than 6 sales people, you can get the best of the best for less than the gross on two sales.
