“I have been avidly following for years from a respectful distance Chris Hanson’s incessant, impressive march to digital excellence. A prolific writer and highly respected speaker, Chris Hanson makes the nonsensical sensible. He makes the impossible possible. In a vendor world chock full of way too much Internet hocus pocus, Chris confidently and quietly demystifies and simplifies the often complex process of turning a dysfunctional dealership organization into a dynamic profit center. Chris understands the evolving needs of the demanding, Internet-sourced customer of 2009 and beyond. He understands how to integrate currently popular social media forums with proprietary websites. Most importantly, he understands how to work collaboratively and courteously with forward-thinking but overwhelmed dealerships to develop and implement logical courses of action and vital process changes that will bring about significant long term improvements in gross profit. It’s not rocket science, it’s Chris Hanson science, and it works. So, what’s the delay? Call or e-mail Chris today. You will be glad you did. He looks forward to hearing from you.”

“As a sales trainer my clients expect me to stay ahead of what the market is doing so that their sales teams can take the customer through an effective, non-confrontational and profitable process. When my dealers asked “who do you know who can help us fix, or enhance our internet process”, Chris is the guy that comes to mind.

Kevin McCarthyInternet Sales Manager at Mike Toler Chrysler Dodge Jeep hired Chris as a Business Consultant in 2006, and hired Chris more than once.



“While it may be easy to “blame the sales team”, Chris Hanson will tell you that it is seldom so simple. Sales performance can suffer because of many reasons, both external and internal to a company. However, there are usually three key areas that a Chris Hanson will focus on:

  1. sales processes
  2. Resource optimization
  3. Management tools

“Whether you’re a corporate Dealership Group with clearly defined sales processes or a Single rooftop with a laissez-faire approach to your sales team, the reality is that your people are following a process. Chris Hanson help’s clients first define the existing sales process, working with your sales team, management, and customers to understand what’s actually happening.

“Often, from initial sales consulting sessions, it becomes clear that not every sales person is following the same process. One of the huge benefits of Chris Hanson is that he provides a fresh perspective, unencumbered by “baked in” assumptions and internal culture.

“Once the sales process has been defined and mapped, a Chris Hanson will work with his client to refine and optimize it to improve top-line performance.

“I would defiantly recommend Chris Hanson to anybody at anytime……. I hired him and am glad I did.”
