I hadn't offered a coupon online before because our used car price is pretty skinny. However, I learned from the sessions that I'll get much more leads if I put a coupon on and its proven to be true; now more and more of our sales are a direct result of our website
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) July 2, 2007
Dealerskins, a division of Dominion Enterprises and a leading provider of automotive dealer web solutions, today announced the launch of a series of one-day user group sessions in locations nationwide. The free, value-added educational sessions are designed to help auto dealers better use their website tools. Each session covers important industry trends and provides hands-on training in the use of Dealerskins tools. Expert trainers also provide best practices to help accelerate dealers' website ROI.
The User Group was launched in Nashville in June. The next session will be in Atlanta, GA, on July 18 with subsequent sessions in major metropolitan areas across the U.S. including:
Cleveland: September 12, 2007
Philadelphia: October 10, 2007

Los Angeles: December 11, 2007
According to Art McDonald, Business Preferred Manager at Crown Ford in Nashville, TN, the User Groups are a great way to meet similar dealers and learn their best practices; "As much as I thought I knew, I found I had a lot more to learn! I enjoyed finding out how other dealers perceived their sites and what they do to create more leads."
"I hadn't offered a coupon online before because our used car price is pretty skinny. However, I learned from the sessions that I'll get much more leads if I put a coupon on and its proven to be true; now more and more of our sales are a direct result of our website," McDonald added.
Each One-Day User Group meeting will include the following sessions:
- Dealership Website Trends and Best Practices
- Revolutionary Online Inventory System
- Enterprise-Level Vehicle Research & Display Tools
- Promotions Center and Professional Online Specials
- Unparalleled Search; Website Optimization and Marketing
"If dealers don't know how to maximize their websites, they can be disappointed with their web results. Our mission with the user groups is to help our dealers get the most out of their Dealerskins website. We want to make sure dealers know best practices and how to best use the tools we provide to make their websites perform to maximum potential," commented Amanda Tossberg, Marketing Director with Dealerskins.
