Web2Carz.com Launches Third Party Advertising Tool

June 29, 2009

HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. — Web2Carz.com Ltd. announced Monday the launch of AdVantage Post, a third-party advertising opportunity for auto dealers that promotes vehicle listings and dealerships.

AdVantage Post provides a premium promotional package that goes far beyond a free vehicle listing. It is designed to bring the consumer further down the shopping funnel and into the showroom.

With AdVantage Post, Web2Carz.com actively promotes the listing and the dealership in a variety of ways, including the latest in social media. The listings are posted both on the Web2Carz.com Websites and its iPhone application, the first fully integrated auto dealer inventory listing application for the iPhone.

“Web2Carz has built a strong reputation as one of the most affordable third party advertising opportunities for new and used vehicles. With our strong Web presence and propriety iPhone application, Web2Carz.com reaches car shoppers both on and off the Internet,” commented Alex Bravy, Web2Carz.com co-founder. “AdVantage Post is a highly affordable premium promotional package for just $250 per month, with no long term commitments. And, if a dealer has no advertising budget at all, they can still post their vehicles on the Web2Carz.com Websites and iPhone application via our Free Listings product,” he added.

AdVantage Post does not limit the number of new or used vehicles a dealer can list, or the amount of images per listing. Each listing receives premium placement in vehicle search results, a customer assigned toll-free number that is displayed and highlighted on search results, and fully trackable reporting for toll-free phone leads that can be delivered to the dealership’s CRM or an email address. The dealership also receives a dedicated dealership page with an SEO friendly link back to the dealer Website – the text of which can be customized by each dealership; listing rotations on Web2Carz home page; daily inventory distribution to premium partners and a CARFAX Vehicle History Report on the vehicle detail page.

Advantage Post also has several social media features including a reputation management feature to manage and encourage customer comments. Vehicles are included in the Web2Carz Twitter feed and an RSS feed is also available on the dealer page that can be taken and posted on the dealership’s own blog, to further promote the inventory.

"Advertising with Web2carz.com has proven to be a good decision. Our inventory is in front of car shoppers on the iPhone, Twitter, web2carz.com and their entire partner network. Compared to other advertising options Web2Carz.com is a great bargain," commented Michael Johnson, president of Michael Chevrolet in New Baltimore, Mich.
