The Customers4 Buying FactorsOne of the most common and costly mistakes car Salespeople make is to buy into the idea that a buyer’s main priority is price. Salespeople who think this way inevitably set themselves up for a dependence on pressure selling, trial closes,excessive negotiations and rock bottom deals. Industry research has consistently shownthat, although price is important to most Customers, it is not at the top of the list for mostbuyers unless the Salesperson puts it there by the process they use.Here are the 4 Buying Factors that motivate car shoppers and buyers who have beensurveyed by the industry. These are presented in the order of priority that mostCustomers place them whenever such surveys are taken:1.
