How To Sell More Cars
by Terry Lancaster
I'm setting out on a search for the greatest car sales books of all time, but first things first. I'm going to exclude my #1 best selling car sales book HOW TO SELL MORE CARS from any consideration.
Not that I don't think it's worthy. The simple concepts and strategies included in this quick, easy-to-read guide can put your automotive sales career on an entirely different trajectory if you make the mental shift and do the physical work. You should read it.
Those same basic strategies dominate most of the best car sales books that will end up on this list. Mainly, that's because I interviewed many, many of these best selling authors as I was creating HOW TO SELL MORE CARS along with some of the best automotive salespeople in the US & Canada.
The strategies are pretty simple; it's the consistent, habitual execution that pays the bills.
So what's your favorite car sales book? Which one has helped you help more people? Which one is the GOAT?!
The Greatest Car Sales Books (of all time!)
How To Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie
Listen, I've been on the Dale Carnegie train for a long time. Fresh out of college, I took the Dale Carnegie Human Relations Course (and read the book) for the first time as a radio advertising sales rep in small town Mississippi. Then I helped teach the course. Then I took the course (and read the book) again 25 years later.
Carnegie's Golden Rules ring as true in today's digital era as they did when he wrote them nearly a century ago, even if the stories and examples were dated when I first read them in the 80's.
Forget about the era, and concentrate on applying these simple principles in your life, and it will change your life. Guaranteed.
It ain't rocket science. It's car sales, and it doesn't have to be hard.In his new book, Ridiculously Simple Car Selling, Steve Stauning and co-author Carson Stauning say that if you're ready to put in the work, you can sell

The Psychology of Selling by Brian Tracy is the best selling sales training program in history! Automotive Salespeople can learn to control your thoughts, feelings, and actions to increase sales higher, faster and easier than you ever imagined.
Tracy recognizes that it's not fancy product features or deeply discounted prices that sells more cars and widgets, it's the inner psychology of the customer and how they perceive and respond to the features and the price.
He's not bashful about confronting the salesperson's psychology and state of mind either offering up tips to improve your mental state, your well being, and your sales.
“Stop for a few seconds and create a clear mental picture of yourself as completely relaxed, calm, positive, smiling, and in complete control of the interview. Then inhale deeply, filling up your lungs and putting pressure on your diaphragm. Hold this breath for a count of seven and exhale for a count of seven. While you are breathing deeply, continue to hold a picture of yourself as the very best salesperson you could possibly be.”

In my personal life, I've survived Cancer... twice. I've had a gun held to my head and a knife held to my throat. I've been inside a building that was hit by a tornado, onboard one boat that sank and two planes that I was sure were about to crash.
I lived through three teenage daughters and I've been married over 35 years... in a row!
When I'm not battling for truth, justice and the American Way, I spend most of my free time, like every other middle-aged, overweight, native southerner, at the ice rink playing hockey.
