    Hello to all..

    My first post ! Hurray :hello: ... I found www.carsforsale.com . Any feedback ? Any one currently on this site ? Not very expensive, plus you can list cars with up to 12 pictures, free of charge.

    There are no additional fees for the leads that your vehicles generate on Carsforsale.com and the $99 is a flat rate to list 100 vehicles. The rates go up from there depending on how many vehicles you would want to put on our site:
    $99 - - up to 100 vehicles
    $149 - - 101 to 199 vehicles
    $199 - - 200 to 299 vehicles and so on.

    here's other things I was emailed by carsforsale.com

    Did you know?

    If you only sold 1-2 cars a year from Carsforsale.com, it would pay for itself!

    Did you know?

    If you go to Google and search "cars for sale", we are #1

    Our store is always looking for alternative lead providers and seeking opinions. I'm bumping this thread to see if there are any dealers who use this website.

    I did a quick check, using this random car:

    HTML:
    http://www.carsforsale.com/used_cars_for_sale/1967_Alfa+Romeo_Duetto_114678211_2
    Did a search in Google for "1967 Alfa Romeo Duetto"

    They're at the bottom of page 2, not too impressive for a phrase that has 48,000 SERPs

    I'd be surprised if you get 1 quality lead a month out of it, let alone 5 or so to make it worth the investment.

    I was leery of it at first - but due to the cost I signed up one of our stores. We actually just sold our first car off of it and made decent money. I don't have any long term data but so far I have made my money back x 15.

    I was just looking at their site's authority for an easy to rank for phrase.

    Checked out this site, found my Used inventory listed thru a 3rd part Vendor I use, very interesting, I mean, it's not a full blown ad about my store, but it does have some quality's, most importantly, as I'm not paying extra for it.,....Free is a very good price :woohoo:

    Marc, keep us in the loop on how this plays out for you over time.

    There are a TON of sites out there like this. Most will accept your inventory feed at no cost. Some offer upgrades for more photos and such but it's usually not worth the extra money.
