Martin's main focus will be in two new areas:

  1. RV Rental Marketing
    You will learn specific ways to reach your existing guests, lost renters and prospects in an economical, effective and professional manner. You will receive specific names and contact information to companies that can be an affordable resource.

    Martin will conduct a "Marketing Plan Workshop" to help put it all together into an efficient and time saving plan. Optional extended school hours - the workshop will start during class and continue before and after hours.

  2. Managed Rental Vehicles
    (Formerly called "leasebacks")
    By the end of class you will see how managed vehicles can be a golden opportunity for acquiring a fleet. You will be given all the information to professionally compare the best methods of obtaining and managing your rental fleet: dealer owned, managed, or a blend of the two. You will also learn how to "manage" the owners of the vehicles, keep the paperwork straight and the proper and ethical use of a managed fleet.
