I couldn't agree with you more. I average 12 leads a month from them, and it's a shame we are in contract with them. I will not renew them.
Amen. Thank you John!I will offer that there is one MAJOR difference in the banter above -- anonymity vs. public accountability.
Beating your chest and making threatening remarks behind the veil of anonymity is kinda like a little kid flipping-off the other kids on the playground while holding-on to mommy's pant leg -- not real high on the Brave-O-Meter, know what I mean?
This is a pretty lively discussion, but not really valuable without equality. I would like to see introductions! This is the CAR business -- I think we skipped the meet-n-greet. "Hello, my name is John, and you are?"
Let's take the masks off! If we can't get that far, maybe time to pick another playground.
We're sorry to hear that Dan. I can assure you some good discussion has happened at Dealer.com, in regards to your comment, since you posted it this morning. Expect to hear from someone soon.I couldn't agree with you more. I average 12 leads a month from them, and it's a shame we are in contract with them. I will not renew them.
Yag,...That said, a small website company, maybe even a website company that is not in the car biz may work better for you.
Yag,This dealer group Bruce Titus > Home uses a small local company (check at the bottom: Home > SiteCrafting, Inc.). I dont have any knowledge whether they are happy or not, but this was also a unique move in my market since almost all other dealers use a car biz specific vendor for the website.
That is totally true. Adding to the point, rather than cookie cutter websites they should be called 'websites with features known to work".Do shoppers really stop and say "damn, that looks just like a dealer website I went to 3 weeks ago".
(unless its a BMW franchise site ;-).
Do shoppers complain that all the dealer sites look the same?
Cookie cutter complaints come from car guys (like you and me) that look at other dealer sites all the time.
