Ah, but the 1% that would...! Anyone will get a kick out of these customers coming in for that $88 car. I'm sure all our clients would split their sides laughing at this, and perhaps crying too. I know it's hard to move these units. I'm responsible for developing new creative to help guys like you sell more of them. Sales like this will surely bring them in with the Slasher. We run advertorials quite frequently for clients who have used the Slasher before and others with imitations which we must call a different name in order for our clients not to run into legal problems with it.
I don't think that only automotive industry people should see this. I happened to stumble upon it while reading about other documentaries. This one was recommended to me and I laughed. I had to find it. One of my assistants saw it was coming on IFC and taped it for our team to see if we could gain new perspective. For me, I gained the perspective that not all my clients are crooks, and that these guys are working really hard to be able to feed their families too. I could feel their pain. It's hard work being in sales.
I think anyone in the market for a vehicle, new or used, should check this out.Read more ›
These sales attract the best salesmen and closers in the business to come in and basically take over the dealership for a week at a time. Dealers hire us because 9 times out of 10 their sales staff are very lazy and complacent...we are sort of skilled assassin's coming in for one purpose...to make as much Gross Profit as possible during the 5 day sales event.
This documentary captures everything, the "whining" dealership "sales" team(more like professional greeters!), the pressure to produce in the short time given for the sale, and the amount of customers and sales we produce in such a short time.
The "slasher" is fun to watch in action. I highly recommend it.

Don't spend too much money on this. The video is worth about $6.00. The moral of the story is you start at a high price, then you knock off $4,000 and the buyer gets excited. Read morePublished on September 2, 2009 by Peter P.
