The Power of Video in Automotive Sales: Insights from a Millionaire Car Salesman


As an automotive professional, I have witnessed the evolution of the industry over the past 25 years. One thing that has remained constant is the need for effective communication and engagement with customers. In today's digital age, video has emerged as a powerful tool for salespeople to connect with their audience and drive results. In this article, we will explore the various ways in which video can be leveraged in automotive sales, drawing insights from the experiences of Matthew Smith, a member of the Millionaire Car Salesman community who recently won a brand new car through a video contest.


Introduction: The Rise of Video in Automotive Sales

Video has become the preferred medium for communication and entertainment in today's society. With the rise of platforms like YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram, people are consuming more video content than ever before. This trend has not gone unnoticed in the automotive industry, where salespeople are leveraging the power of video to engage with customers and drive sales.

Matthew Smith, a member of the Millionaire Car Salesman community, recently won a brand-new car through a video contest organized by Ford. This achievement highlights the potential of video in automotive sales and the impact it can have on a salesperson's career. In this article, we will delve into the strategies and techniques that Matthew used to win the contest and explore the broader implications of video in the automotive industry.


The Blue Cruise Contest: A Game-Changer for Matthew Smith

The Blue Cruise Contest organized by Ford was open to all salesmen and sales managers at Ford dealerships across America. The contest required participants to submit a video showcasing the technology offered by Ford, specifically the Ford Blue Cruise feature. Matthew Smith, a sales agent at Matthews Curry Ford in Florida, decided to enter the contest without expecting to win the grand prize.

To his surprise, Matthew was informed that he had lost the contest. However, little did he know that Ford had actually selected him as the grand prize winner and had been planning a surprise announcement. On the day of the surprise, Matthew was asked to film a commercial for the dealership, unaware that Ford representatives and a camera crew were present to capture the moment. As he finished his speech, he turned around to find a crowd of people cheering and confetti falling from the sky. It was at this moment that he learned he had won a brand new Ford Mustang Mach-E electric vehicle worth over $55,000.


The Power of Video in Automotive Sales

Matthew's success in the Blue Cruise Contest highlights the power of video in automotive sales. By creating a compelling video showcasing the Ford Blue Cruise technology, Matthew was able to capture the attention of the judges and stand out among hundreds of other contestants. This achievement demonstrates the impact that video can have on a salesperson's career and the potential rewards that come with it.

Video offers a unique opportunity to engage with customers on a deeper level. It allows salespeople to showcase their knowledge, expertise, and personality in a way that text-based communication simply cannot match. By leveraging video, salespeople can build trust, establish rapport, and create a memorable experience for their customers.

According to Sean V. Bradley, CSP, "I wrote the first article about video optimization in 2006 in Digital Dealer. That was three years before anybody did it. Like, there, you know what I mean? So I've been doing this for so long, and to finally see the OEMs embracing it, finally seeing salespeople and automotive professionals and managers embracing it on so many different levels, I think that it will inspire other people in the group."


Leveraging Video for Sales Success

There are several key ways in which automotive sales professionals can leverage video to drive success:

1. Walkaround Videos:

"Walkaround videos are a powerful tool for showcasing the features and benefits of a vehicle," says Sean V. Bradley, CSP. "By creating high-quality videos that highlight the key selling points of a car, salespeople can provide a virtual tour for potential customers. This allows customers to get a better sense of the vehicle's condition, features, and overall value."


2. Video Emails and Text Messages:

"Video emails and text messages are a game-changer when it comes to communication with customers," explains Sean V. Bradley, CSP. "Instead of relying on static text-based messages, salespeople can use video to convey their message in a more engaging and personal way. Video emails and text messages allow salespeople to showcase their enthusiasm, knowledge, and commitment to customer satisfaction."


3. Appointment Confirmations:

"Appointment confirmations are a critical step in the sales process," emphasizes Sean V. Bradley, CSP. "By using video to confirm appointments, salespeople can create a memorable and personalized experience for customers. A video confirmation allows salespeople to introduce themselves, provide directions to the dealership, and set expectations for the appointment."


4. Following Up with Leads:

"Following up with leads is a crucial part of the sales process," states Sean V. Bradley, CSP. "Video can be a powerful tool for standing out from the competition and capturing the attention of potential customers. By sending personalized video follow-ups, salespeople can demonstrate their commitment to customer satisfaction and provide additional value."


The Future of Video in Automotive Sales

As technology continues to advance, the role of video in automotive sales will only become more prominent. With the rise of artificial intelligence and virtual reality, salespeople will have even more tools at their disposal to create immersive and engaging experiences for customers. Video will continue to be a driving force in the industry, allowing salespeople to connect with customers on a deeper level and differentiate themselves from the competition.

In conclusion, the power of video in automotive sales cannot be overstated. Matthew Smith's success in the Blue Cruise Contest is a testament to the impact that video can have on a salesperson's career. By leveraging video, salespeople can engage with customers in a more personal and compelling way, build trust and rapport, and ultimately drive sales. As the industry continues to evolve, it is essential for automotive professionals to embrace video as a key tool in their sales arsenal. The future of automotive sales is video, and those who harness its power will undoubtedly reap the rewards.

According to Matthew Smith, "Go out there, make a video, shoot your shot. Because at the worst possible expense, somebody likes what you're doing and buys a car. That's what you do it for, the one view to piece and be like, oh, wow. I like what you did there, because that dealership did absolutely nothing."

Matthew's story serves as an inspiration for automotive professionals to think outside the box and leverage the power of video to achieve their goals. By embracing video as a tool for communication and engagement, salespeople can create meaningful connections with customers and drive success in the industry. The possibilities are endless, and the rewards can be life-changing. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your camera and start shooting your way to success in automotive sales.
