Lesson Plan

The car salesman is arguably one of the most well-paid careers in the world. The car salesman is an average selling position, which is why there are so many car salesman jobs around the country. Car salespeople may work for dealership franchises, as a private sales person, or they can work independently.

Like most sales positions, car salespeople are paid based on their commissions; and these commissions are usually based on a percentage of a total sale, not the actual selling price of the car. A car salesman could earn six figures or more each year from selling just one car; this type of income is common in the United States.

However, not all car salespeople can earn this kind of money, and the number of people in this career who do make that kind of money is fewer than most people think. Some people have the right training for making it big in this business, but others simply have a knack for selling, and a lot of patience to wait for the sales to come in. There are also some people who choose a specific type of car that is easy to sell - and these types of cars generally sell faster than other types of cars.

As a car salesman, the most important thing you need is patience and a good sense of what your customers want. Your ability to sell your own car can be greatly increased with training from a professional car salesman.

Many times, the car sales people who work for franchise stores or other companies don't even have to work directly for these companies; they simply work for a franchise, and the franchise stores pay them for each car they sell. These companies have a huge overhead, so paying you commissions from the sales that you bring in for them is a great way to help keep them going.

While there are some car sales people who are hired on an independent basis by a company, there are also some independent sales people who work on commission, so they only get paid if they sell a certain number of cars for a certain period of time. For example, if you sell fifty cars a month and you make a fifty percent commission on each car sold, then this would be the amount you get paid.

When you're starting out in this field, you'll find it easier to work with one company, so that you can get an idea of what your skills are like and what kind of money you should make from each company. It can take a lot of work to get experience in this industry, but it pays off well.

While it's true that you won't be able to quit your day job and pursue your dream, you can choose your own career path that suits you. When you're ready for the life of a car salesman, keep doing what you're doing now and just improve upon it over time.

A car salesman has to have great customer service skills, because he's going to be the face of the company that he works for. There are people who are very satisfied with the quality of service that they receive, and it's up to you to prove to them that you can be more than just that. If you don't like to deal with the customers, then this kind of work probably isn't for you.

You also need to be a very good salesperson because when you first start out in this field, you'll likely have a lot of people call and ask questions. The trick is to be able to give them answers to their questions quickly and efficiently, and to make sure that they feel comfortable with you as a salesman.

You also need to be able to sell to them. Many times, a car salesman has to do an initial sales pitch or two before he can get them interested, so that he knows what his sales pitch is and how it should sound. A good salesman will never sell something that he doesn't personally like!

People in the business, including yourself, will meet a lot of people over a period of time, so you'll need to build relationships. And the more customers that you have, the more money that you can make.
