Micro moments of truth

authentic reviews

We know that Satisfaction drives speed of sales

There is a direct correlation between the number of days it takes to sell a car and the level of customer satisfaction.  A dealer with a promoter score of 30% will see cars stay in stock for just over 46 Days, whereas a score of 70% will be 34 days.  90% promoter score brings it down even further to 28 days.

In effect this creates additional sales “days” as a “free hit” – more sales requiring no further capital.
