    Jack Schmitt Ford / Lincoln
    Job Description
    $60,000 a yearJack Schmitt Ford Lincoln- the Metro East's fastest growing Ford Dealership is looking for help with our internet and phone leads.

    We are open to multiple different possibilities, but we are seeking someone with experience in retail automotive as a sales manager, internet sales manager, internet sales consultant, business development agent, etc.

    We would be open to assistance in a "soup to nuts" scenario where the individual(s) we hire work with our internet and phone leads from contact to delivery of their new vehicle or we would be open to someone working as an appointment setter who works with contacts over the phone and computer and then hands them off once they arrive in the store introducing them to one of our great sales professionals.

    As a dealership, we have had tremendous growth in the volume of attention and contacts that we receive from our various digital marketing channels, but because we are busy working with customers in the showroom, these leads often don't receive the type of attention that would have us maximizing on the opportunities.

    We receive 400-600 contacts monthly just in the way of web form submissions, and we currently have one Internet Sales Manager setting appointments and contacting these leads with help from the sales people. One person can't possibly handle the frequency of contact needed. We have identified that a strong opportunity exists for someone to come in and earn a great living from aggressively working these opportunities using the tools that we have at our disposal. As a dealership we need someone committed 100% to this.

    This is not a position that we will train someone new for though we will make investments in the right individual and send them to continuing education, growth conferences, etc. We are seeking only experienced individuals who would bring a solution to the dealership to the challenges that we have in this department.

    Compensation will be based on appointments shown or vehicle sales depending on the final job description of the person we hire.

    If you possess the experience and the skill set in this area of vehicle sales, our dealership is one of the best opportunities out there. It is wide open for someone to come in and do big things.
