The Power of Video in Automotive Sales: Insights from Brenna Chinn



In the fast-paced world of automotive sales, standing out from the competition is crucial. With customers bombarded by messages from various dealerships, it's essential to find innovative ways to engage and connect with potential buyers. One strategy that has proven to be highly effective is the use of video. In this article, we will explore the power of video in automotive sales, drawing insights from Brenna Chinn, a successful product specialist at Koons Woodbridge Kia. We will delve into the various ways she utilizes video to build rapport, overcome challenges, and ultimately close deals.


Building Rapport through Video

One of the key advantages of using video in automotive sales is the ability to establish a personal connection with customers before they even step foot in the dealership. Brenna emphasizes the importance of introducing herself and the vehicle through video, allowing customers to see her personality and get excited about their upcoming visit. She believes that this initial interaction sets the stage for a positive customer experience and helps differentiate her from the competition.

According to Brenna, "Hi, my name is Brenna Chinn, and I'm a product specialist at Koons Woodbridge Kia. I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself and the Kia Telluride, which I think you'll absolutely love. I'm here to answer any questions you may have and make your car-buying experience as smooth as possible. I look forward to meeting you soon!"

Brenna's video strategy extends beyond just internet leads. She also sends videos to phone-ups, appointment confirmations, and even third-party leads. By providing a face and a voice to the customer, she creates a sense of familiarity and trust, which leads to increased engagement and response rates. Customers appreciate the effort she puts into personalizing the experience and are more likely to reach out with questions or schedule appointments.


Overcoming Price Objections

Price objections are a common challenge in automotive sales, and Brenna has developed effective strategies for addressing them. When customers express concerns about the price of a vehicle, she takes a two-pronged approach. First, she highlights the value and features of the vehicle, emphasizing why it is worth the price.

As Brenna explains, "The Kia Telluride offers an incredible value for its price. It comes with advanced safety features, a spacious interior, and a powerful engine. When you consider all the benefits it offers, the price is definitely justified."

Secondly, Brenna explores alternative financing options to make the purchase more affordable. She suggests financing the vehicle instead of paying cash, highlighting the competitive interest rates and the ability to pay off the loan early without penalty. By presenting financing as a viable option, she helps customers see the long-term benefits and opens up possibilities that they may not have considered initially.


Addressing Interest Rates

High-interest rates can be a deterrent for some customers, but Brenna approaches this challenge by providing context and comparison. She acknowledges that interest rates have increased in recent years but assures customers that Kia offers competitive rates. She encourages them to shop around and compare rates, confident that Kia's financing options will stand out.

Brenna states, "While interest rates have gone up, Kia still offers competitive rates. I encourage you to explore your options and compare rates. You'll find that Kia's financing options are among the best in the market."

By focusing on the overall value and benefits of the vehicle, she helps customers see beyond the interest rate and understand the long-term advantages of ownership.


Dealing with Inventory Challenges

Inventory challenges have become more prevalent in the automotive industry, with supply chain disruptions and increased demand. Brenna acknowledges that availability can be a concern for customers, especially for popular models like the Kia Telluride. However, she offers solutions to address this issue.

For customers who are not in a rush, she suggests placing a factory direct order, allowing them to customize the vehicle to their preferences. This option requires patience, as it may take several weeks for the vehicle to arrive, but it ensures that customers get exactly what they want.

Brenna explains, "If you're willing to wait a bit, we can place a factory direct order for your desired Kia Telluride. This way, you can choose the color, features, and options that suit your preferences. It may take a few weeks, but it's worth it to get the perfect vehicle."

For customers who need a vehicle immediately, Brenna leverages her dealership's network and explores dealership exchanges. By reaching out to other dealerships, she can find a suitable vehicle and facilitate a trade, ensuring that the customer gets the car they need in a timely manner. This proactive approach demonstrates her commitment to finding solutions and meeting customer needs, even in challenging circumstances.


Expanding Sales Opportunities

While Brenna has achieved impressive sales numbers through phone-ups and walk-ins, there are additional opportunities for growth. She can tap into the power of referrals and orphan owners to expand her customer base. By providing exceptional service and building strong relationships with existing customers, she can generate referrals and recommendations.

Brenna states, "Word-of-mouth is incredibly powerful in the automotive industry. By providing a great experience to my customers, I've been able to generate a lot of referrals. People trust the recommendations of their friends and family, so it's a great way to expand my customer base."

Additionally, she can leverage her dealership's extensive used car inventory to attract customers who may be looking for more affordable options. By showcasing the value and benefits of pre-owned vehicles, she can cater to a wider range of budgets and preferences.


Conclusion and Future Outlook

Brenna Chinn's success in automotive sales is a testament to the power of video and personalized customer engagement. By utilizing video throughout the sales process, she has been able to build rapport, overcome objections, and close deals. Her strategies for addressing price objections, interest rates, and inventory challenges provide valuable insights for other automotive professionals.

Looking ahead, the automotive industry will continue to evolve, and sales professionals must adapt to changing customer expectations and market conditions. Embracing video as a communication tool and leveraging digital platforms for customer engagement will be essential for success. By staying proactive, building strong relationships, and continuously refining their sales strategies, automotive professionals can thrive in a competitive market. With the right tools and techniques, they can create exceptional customer experiences and drive sales to new heights.
