(10:00 am) Patrick Anderson, Anderson Economic Group
Special session for dealers and general managers only

MADA will offer a special morning session for MADA dealers and general managers only. As we have heard from many dealers, manufacturers have recently been placing new requirements on their franchised dealers.

To discuss this, we will be joined by Patrick Anderson, principal and CEO of Anderson Economic Group (AEG). An expert consultant in the automotive industry, Mr. Anderson will provide information about the changing manufacturer expectations and how dealers can look out for their interests. Discussion topics include: sales effectiveness, metrics and market territories.

Use your data to increase sales and service

How can dealers increase sales and service traffic while eliminating waste? The answer is really quite simple – start with your data! If you can’t track what your marketing dollars are doing, you probably shouldn’t be spending them.  During this year’s Annual Meeting, attendees will hear from Derc Teschler with Dealer121 who can help answer the age-old question: is my marketing working?

Mr. Teschler will show you how to use the data you have, track your marketing dollars and ultimately drive more sales and service to your business.
