A current trend among car buyers is looking to the Internet for prices, information and styles. Many car dealers are using car websites to promote their stock of vehicles and to help consumers make informed decisions. An online showcase of cars is an extremely powerful marketing tool.
MotoNet is a service that specializes in motor trade websites. Just a bit of clarification: I am not associated in any way with MotoNet or any other names mentioned in this article. I came across these names while researching for an unrelated project, and considered quite good information to share with my readers - for their own knowledge. Companies like MotoNet help car dealers build a showroom that can be accessed online twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. The company creates sites that customers can visit on the internet to view the car dealers' vehicles without leaving their homes. This is a very appealing service to many customers.
Many car website companies charge a relatively high fee for this service, including update fees and management fees to keep the car dealer's site up to date. The car websites are generally maintained pretty efficiently while providing quality services and the latest technology. The company has developed a system that allows the car dealer to keep the vehicle website up to date. The management system is secure and user friendly. It has a simple, easy-to-use design that is organized to accommodate users of all technological backgrounds. Employees can update, delete and add cars to the website with little effort or skill.
Employees can create advertisements for the vehicles; create descriptions of the cars and pricing information. This accessibility is extremely valuable to car websites to insure that customers have the most current listings. Vehicle websites broaden a car dealer's potential customer range. Anyone who has access to the Internet is a potential client. Good car websites will provide an easily navigated site for consumers as well. People visiting the site can shop for cars on the website from their homes.
Someone who is interested in a certain vehicle can find details about the car and can request more information as well. A car website also provides valuable information about the car dealer's company. The site should include an "About Us" page to provide a little background information about the dealership. Many people are attracted to small businesses while others prefer large corporations. The contact information is included on the vehicle websites and people can have access to specific directions to the dealership. Included in the contact information is the phone number and the dealer can opt to include a list of salespeople to contact.
Another valuable feature is vehicle sourcing. The car website can include a sourcing page in which a customer can request a certain year, make and model. The customer can also request a certain color and extras tailored to individual taste.
This feature is very appealing to many car buyers who have something very specific in mind. The customer can shop without going from dealer to dealer. In today's fast-paced society, a car website is a must for serious car dealers who want to expand their customer base.
The easily navigated sites are easy to maintain, customer friendly and they will pay for themselves with one or two sales.
