IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 18, 2016) - DealerPeople®, the first-of-its-kind, free web-based and mobile platform dedicated to providing solutions for recruiting, training and retaining the most qualified employees in the auto dealership industry -- is calling all car salespeople to whip out their smartphones, tablets and cameras to shoot a short video showing their best walk-around for a chance to win up to $1000. Beginning now through December 31st, salespeople can upload their walk-around videos, and DealerPeople will select the best three winners in early January. First place will receive $1000, 2nd place $500 and 3rd place $300. All entrants will receive a $10 Starbucks e-gift certificate.
"The walk-around is one of the most important, yet sometimes neglected steps in the car sales process," says DealerPeople CEO Jay R. Mortensen. "Not only is this contest a chance for contestants to win some cash, but it's a chance for them to get noticed by one of the 4,000 dealerships currently subscribed to DealerPeople."
