DealerLAB Is Coming And We Want You There!
What is DealerLAB?
This is opportunity knocking at your door.

This is not one of these events in a hotel conference room with a ton of sponsors or with a pitch waiting for you at the end.

We're bringing a small group of maximum 20 dealerships into one small room to break down and discuss the best recipe, strategies, and tactics for building offers for any industry.

You’ll be able to sit side by side with fellow dealers & exchange insights that you can start applying immediately.

It’s unlike anything you’ll experience all year!

This is your chance to massively propel your car dealership forward!

Although you'll meet others, DealerLAB Is Not A "Networking Event" 

It's an experience...

THIS IS NOT A VENDOR SPONSORED EVENT.

We wanted a platform where we could go deep-dive mode, forward teaching style, for TWO DAYS...

Frankly, we didn't ask for this to happen, but:

• After working with over 200 dealers within the past few years,
• Spending over 25,000 hours in active process planning with dealers,
• Showing automotive dealers how to create their sales message, offers, and funnels through marketing tactics & systems.

We were at a breaking point.

How could we scale the way we're helping dealers thrive with all those confusing digital tools? All those shiny objects are distracting you from your goals. And which one's the best for you anyways?

This event was born out of dealers asking for a condensed, unbiased workshop.

Why not go all in?

So we decided to create small groups of like minded dealer principals & managers willing to shape their vision around digital sales.

Also, help you understand the frameworks & science behind the marketing tactics on the day-to-day.

So you can take better decisions, every day.

My friends, there ARE PATTERNS (frameworks / models / etc) that cause success in the automotive ecosystem.
  
Guess what really doesn't matter?

- online vs offline...
- physical vs digital...
- OEM vs dealership...
- cheap vs expensive...
- new vs experienced...
etc...

It's not what most are taught or are teaching today...

And also, we have the expectation to think this knowledge can bring manufacturers & dealers closer when it comes to marketing. Both of you are wasting a lot of money these days.

These are tried and true "models" that tens & even hundreds of dealers have now used to go from average to expert level when it comes to digital retail.

There's fundamentally WRONG material running rampant among dealers, vendors, agencies & third party marketplaces.

It's not because they want to keep you in the dark. Well some do. It's because of a lack of specialization. 

Where else are you going to find this one of a kind opportunity?

Nowhere!

Bluntly, we firmly believe you will learn these patterns eventually...
It's the cost you should take note of...

That leaves you with two choices:
1) Learn these patterns through a teacher who'd DOING what he teaches (DealerLAB)...

2) Learn them on your own through painful trial and error that hurts your time and bottom line big time...

The car business has changed, it's not as permissive as it was 5, 10 or even 20 years ago.

Margins used to be great, now you have to watch what you're doing.

Coming to this event and playing full out is the CHEAPEST and FASTEST way to your success...

We don't believe in shortcuts...

But you can certainly increase your speed on the path... And reduce your time to revenue when it comes to generating new sales.

It’s going to be mind-blowing!
"I look at what we do in terms of marketing maybe once a month, but I need to know if the people I hired to handle it are making the right decisions with my money."

BREAKDOWN
As a decision-maker, you must understand these to avoid making costly mistakes, even if it's not part of your day-to-day tasks.
DAY ONE: BASICS
It's never too late to learn about the impact digital marketing can have on your business. Learn the basics of digital marketing applied to the car dealership ecosystem.
