MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FRIDAY, MAHCH 17, 1939 Used Car" Dealers Plan Sales Campaign MARCH 18-25 IS SET ASIDE FOR OFFERING 'BUYS' Plans Discussed at "Used Car Week" Smoker at Hanford Dealers, salesmen, finance and advertising men of Mason City engaged in one of the fastest moving, fastest changing busi- lesses of the day, the automobile jusiness, discussed problems and alans for a "Used Car Week," March 18-25 at a smoker held at the Hotel Hanford Thursday night. A. B. Chambers of Des Moines, sne of the outstanding automobile Businessmen of Iowa, and the president of the Iowa Automobile Dealers association, was the guest speaker of the evening. "In dollars and cents, we take in as much from the used car lot as from the new car salesroom, but the major problem in the automobile business today is still the used car business," said Mr. Chambers. Likes Used Cars "My early training helped me to like the used car business," said Mr. Chambers. "It is a source of cash revenue and it is not necessary for a dealer fo borrow money in the used car. business. "It is necessary for a dealer to have an ample stock of diversified makes and models'. He must also have outstanding facilities for displaying his merchandise the same as any other merchant. This helps to build confidence. "A used car dealer must also have a well-planned advertising campaign. It is impossible to write good advertising, however, if you don*t know what to write that will appeal to the prospective buyer." Gives Advice Mr. Chambers warned dealers not to scatter their advertising dollars, but to bang away on one shmg and dominate one medium He suggested that the dealers lean over backwards to get suspicion out of the buyer's mind and to remember that decisions are no onger so much a matter of price for about 30 per cent of the minds' o£ the buyers are made up be; ore they ever step on the used Forty per cent of the used cars are sold at night, according to Mr Chambers. He suggested that many good prospects are to be found off the used car lot and that new car salesmen must also sell late model cars. Need Flexibility You must have adequate finance arrangements that allow flexibility with which to make deals. Watch your standing in the community and keep the good will of your customers." Lee P. Loomis, publisher of the Mason City Globe-Gazette, spoke Jnefly on salesmanship and advertising and said that resource- :ulness and enthusiasm was needed to succeed in the selling game :oday.
