Online Management Training

About These Courses

Statistically, a very poorly trained salesperson will still get way more training than a manager...Many were trained through experience by others who didn't get management core skill training either. JVTN® will fix that. We cover all those core management skills for dealers and managers, including: selling skills to coach their salespeople, managing their salespeople, hiring / interviewing skills, tracking skills, daily training skills, and developing a motivated team who wants to win! Here is the rundown of skills, processes and tools we offer dealers and managers to grow your dealership...

“$156,000 my first year selling cars!”

Joe, it’s been one year since I stepped off the oil fields and into the car business. Thank you and thanks to my store for believing in the value of your training. I focused on the Core 4 Selling Skills on JVTN® for the first 2 weeks of my training. I was relentless in my pursuit to get better and took over 100 chapters in that time frame, and I continue to train daily. If it wasn’t for JVTN® and your new basics selling process, I wouldn’t be able to continually sharpen my skills, increase my units, and my income. With JVTN® I went from 8 cars to 10 to 13 to 16 and then to my best month at 20 units after attending your closing and negotiation workshop. Joe, I was #5 in units in our group of 15 stores. I was #1 in gross and I doubled the gross of #2. You truly have taught me how to work smarter not harder, my customers love me, my deals are easier, and the sky is the limit!

“Last year we were up 30% in new car sales, and 53% for used!”

Hello Joe, I just wanted to take a minute to say thanks for another Incredible Year. As a group, the Murray group believes in training 100% and last year we were up 30% in new car sales and our used car sales were up 53%. We send all of our managers to the managers and sales workshops and all salespeople to the sales workshops and most have been to the Closing and Negotiation workshop as well. Many of them have been multiple times. Why? Because it just plain works. You can never stop learning and you have to keep evolving if you want to stay ahead of the competition. The consistency of the message when going through your New Basics sales process is what everyone needs to stay on track and keep growing, and JVTN® provides that to myself and my team to always keep us fresh and always gives me new topics to train on. I recently attended your Train The Trainer workshop, and I’ve got to say it really got me out of my comfort zone and changed my perspective on what effective training really looks like. After that class, I now approach my meetings with a solid plan, and I understand that if I want to get them excited about any topic we cover, I need to tune in to their station (What’s In It For Them), and if my training doesn’t include the ‘how to’, it’s of no value to them. My meetings have gotten easier, they have been way more effective and the involvement during the meetings has gone up 10-fold. My salespeople are having more fun, closing more deals and making more money and most importantly – more and more of our customers are happy! Thanks again for providing everything a dealership needs to be a success in today’s ever-changing market!

- Tony Almeida - Sales Manager, Murray GM, Fort St. John, BC Canada

“I doubled my gross and doubled my units!”

Joe, I have been in the car business for 4 years and your online training on JVTN® has been a career saver. Prior to having JVTN®, I was trained like most others; there’s the new car lot and there’s the used car lot. It was basically survival. I was selling 7 cars and not making a lot of money. After taking your courses on JVTN®, I’m selling 15 units and have increased my earnings substantially. Your 8-step sales process has made it so easy to be a success in the car business. Basically, it’s follow the process every single time and you will not fail. Thanks again, for doing the hard part, and figuring out a process that truly works.
