Vehicle accessorization is big business, generating $36-billion annually in direct retail sales. Studies show that 70 percent of accessories are sold to new-vehicle buyers within 30 days of vehicle purchase. But dealers only capture 13 percent of those accessory sales. That leaves a lot of money on the table.

Through the PRO Sales Training Manual, revised and reintroduced in 2015, the council continues to provide tools to improve business practices and procedures. PRO’s most recent initiative, the development of the SEMA Salesperson Competency Certificate, is based on the sales manual. By measuring a salesperson’s knowledge, the certificate builds a more professional industry, enhances the industry’s image and conveys a company’s—and an individual’s—commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction. This session shows what it takes to create a successful dealer outreach and builds an understanding of the certificate program, thereby delivering practical tips and ideas attendees can put to use immediately in their company.
