Duane was contacted personally by Joe Girard (www.joegirard.com), the world’s #1 retail car sales person according to the Guinness Book of World Records, to conduct his inaugural talk with him in the atrium at the Automotive Hall of Fame in Detroit. This makes Duane the only automotive sales trainer to do a talk with Joe! Joe became Duane’s close friend and mentor.

M&A MARKET IS POISED FOR GROWTH

WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A GREAT F&I MANAGER
Anyone who follows me knows how passionate I am about the car business and psychology. To that point, my son is now a very high performing F&I manager, and my daughter is a very successful psychotherapist.
UNSTOPPABLE SELLING OFFERS BLUEPRINT FOR SALES SUCCESS
The road to sales success starts with knowing what to focus on. Sales do not come from technology. “Too many sales people ignore these nuggets of advice,” says sales trainer Duane Marino.
Twice the Sales in Half the Time™
STILL USING A “4 SQUARE”
TO CLOSE YOUR CUSTOMERS?
This is a Google Review from one of our FLOW dealer clients, Oakville Chrysler. Among dozens of major and minor changes in our FLOW sales process, we show our clients how to counter your competition that still use the old “4 Square Close”. In 2010 I was…
COMPLEXITY IS THE ENEMY
How much more would you be willing, able and ready to do if you weren’t so bogged down by irrelevant and cumbersome stuff during your sales day? I got to see first hand, one of the ways Joe Girard was able to keep his 150+ cars a month held together…
OUR CLIENTS’ RESULTS SPEAK VOLUMES
Improved Sales, Profits, Customer Experience and Employee Retention
BOB MOHR & JOHN KOSTAKOS,
Promoters, USA & Canada
For over 40 years, we have hand-picked and co-created the careers of the best trainers and speakers such as Jackie B.Cooper, Grant Cardone, Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracy and many, many more. Duane Marino is the automotive trainer of today and embodies the best traits of the best in his field, past and present. He not only understands the market and the inner workings of a store, he can actually do what he teaches in a store personally and does so regularly at stores across the nation. I can say that every salesperson, manager and dealer should take advantage of what he has to offer, from phone to sales to closing skills, management training, F&I and sales psychology. HE’S YOUR MAN.
VP, Sinclair Broadcasting Group
While in the midst of the worst economic downturn and automotive contraction the United States has ever seen, we knew we needed something different, fresh, motivating and effective to help our dealers get out of the slump. So we sought the best we could find and found Duane, flew him to our Washington studio and he did a 2 Hour Power Talk, broadcast across the nation. The feedback was instant, awesome and unanimous. He’ll be back soon for another show.
DP, GM & Chrysler, Orangeville
We have been using Duane’s sales programs for my sales people for years, so when he described his Dealer Group Program it only made sense. Open access to the Academy Programs for Sales, F&I, Service and Management, MarinoTV, his books, in-dealership and group training has streamlined our training efforts, reduced my training expenses, and helped my team maximize their potential!
DP, Toyota, Summerside
What I have found most about Duane’s (training) is that he’s a study of the best parts of all the best philosophies. He’s got certain aspects that you’d find in other types of training, but he’s blended them new things and modern methodologies that make it completely his own. And if you are not taking his training, you’re really only getting a fragmented version of what could be a better training, which would be his!
