With the fierce market, the performance requirements of sales staff are getting higher and higher. For salespeople, the annual regional auto show is the best time for auto sales to boost performance. After all, customers are more focused and easier to get at the auto show. However, most of the time, a brand booth is usually arranged by several exhibitors, and different exhibitors already have a competitive relationship, which often leads to conflicts because of the small things of the customers. In addition, from the customer's point of view, buying a car is a big expense, and there will be a mentality of "comparison of goods". It is very common to consult different salespeople about the preferential prices of new cars on the booth, which is more likely to cause conflicts between the salespeople of both sides and think that their customers have been robbed.
