Adolescence is an age when all teenagers are looking for creating an individual identity. The little girl has grown up into an awkward teenager. She no longer needs her mother to feed and dress her.

These KPI’s are benchmarked to provide an industry/dealer standard of performance.

For some additional exposure try a direct mail campaign or a place a coupon in the local business directory.
