How to Balance Work While Wearing too Many Hats

November 9, 2022

It's all too easy to lose balance in today's world. Buying habits have changed, causing selling trends to evolve in order to match a more technologically advanced consumer. Big or small, many stores have experienced growing pains as a result of this expansion. Countless dealers have reacted by adding to their solution set without fully understanding the impact this has on operations. As a result, owners, managers, and salespeople alike have found themselves wearing too many hats.Balance is important, but achieving it may seem difficult. Roles that didn't exist before are emerging every day. And, as dealers search for opportunities to fill these positions, they are oftentimes left having to assign job functions to existing team members. Think about the role social media currently plays in your marketing playbook. What once was viewed as a platform for simple networking has grown to become a required avenue for reaching new and existing customers. Chances your team has a person dedicated to social media. Much like a BDR, this person is fielding questions, inspecting ads, and interacting with consumers. If you take this position lightly, you risk damaging your reputation with negative reviews.But that's where technology comes in to give your team a much-needed break. Think about your sales staff and how they interact with shoppers. Ideally, your team would be filled with product experts across all the various pieces of inventory on your lot. Having someone study all of the brands to become familiar with the various makes, models, and packages would be time-consuming and costly for you and your team. Instead, leverage solutions that help your staff work smarter. As they are balancing their workload, your salespeople will need to have streamlined processes for learning products and educating customers.
