Find out how to cut the time required to research used vehicles by more than 50 percent, increase “win” rates with a strategy-minded mix of live and proxy bids and set purchase parameters that protect each car’s profit potential and minimize the number of “problem” cars you acquire. Take-home bonus: Use Todd’s buyer performance blueprint to maximize the effectiveness and volume of online auction acquisitions. Todd Kinzle is sharing his expertise with you.

2. Learn how to set performance benchmarks for buyers to improve their effectiveness as online auction participants.

Todd Kinzle is CEO and co-founder of Auction Genius. He and two friends founded the company nearly four years ago with a single goal: Apply their technology development skills that  would address an everyday problem for car dealers. The group opened an independent used vehicle dealership to gain an understanding of auto retailing. Auction Genius was born as they discovered the difficulties dealers encounter purchasing used vehicles from wholesale auctions. Prior to Auction Genius, Kinzle held sales and business development positions for marketing technology and property development firms. Kinzle also served as an outreach minister for a church in Longmont, CO, where he currently resides.
