They ranged from developing new service department positions to staff-wide marketing to new sales programs. These best business practices and others were submitted by dealers throughout the nation to Powersports Business. These practices, which we call Bold Ideas, helped dealers get through these less-than-ideal economic times and in some cases, dramatically increase their sales.
Powersports Business editors read through numerous submissions and eventually ranked the Top 10 Bold Ideas. All 10 will be in the July 13 issue of Powersports Business, where they will be described in detail. Full interviews with some of the dealer principals will be posted on PowersportsBusiness.com.
We at Powersports Business want to pass along these best practices in an effort to help spark ideas for other dealers nationwide. And just not this year. We plan to make this an annual contest, and dealers interested in participating in next year's Bold Ideas contest can contact Powersports Business Editor Neil Pascale at firstname.lastname@example.org.
