KYMCO USA challenged its dealers to a sales shoot-out to determine the brand’s top producers for the summer season. The contest took place from May 1-July 31, and it sought the top two KYMCO sales producers during the three-month period, according to a company press release.
Under the contest rules, in order to participate, salespeople were required to take an online course at KYMCO University, the company’s Web-based training system. They could then register each sale they made at the same Web site.
“We wanted to motivate our sales force to close deals,” Steve Lazoff, director of sales for KYMCO USA, said in the release. “But we also wanted to encourage them to use the sales training tools that we have made available online. KYMCO University is an easy way for new sales people to get familiar with our products and for experienced people to refresh their knowledge.”
The winner in the two-wheel market segment was Robbie DeMeulenaere of K&W Cycle in Utica, Mich. Dustin Sweeten of Powerhouse Motorsports in Pleasant Grove, Utah, took the four-wheel title by selling the most KYMCO ATV and UXV side-by-side models. In addition to the grand prizes, monthly winners were named for the East and West sales regions.
KYMCO USA is also offering financial support for a special motorsports training package developed exclusively for KYMCO by The Glenn Roller Institute of Scottsdale, Ariz. Without leaving their dealership, sales people can complete online exercises for review, and, with an investment of only 30-40 minutes per day, they can graduate in about six weeks.
