We look forward to bringing new leads and more business to their strong network of dealers.
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) March 29, 2010
AutoUSA (http://www.autousadealers.com), the industry's leading provider of the highest quality Internet leads to auto dealers nationwide, today announced a new program to provide additional website leads by utilizing LeadDriver™ from Kelley Blue Book. LeadDriver seamlessly integrates well-known Kelley Blue Book® Trade-In Values within the dealer's Web site while simultaneously capturing lead information. In addition to the car buyer's contact information, LeadDriver provides the dealer with details on the buyer's trade-in vehicle, its value and the buyer's new vehicle of interest. Recent Kelley Blue Book research revealed that 73 percent of in-market vehicle shoppers are more likely to purchase a vehicle from dealerships that display Kelley Blue Book® Values on their Web sites. LeadDriver allows the dealer to convert more of their Web site traffic into actionable leads.
"Since the early '90s AutoUSA has been in the business of connecting dealers with buyers and we've had a very successful partnership with Kelley Blue Book over the years. Having Kelley Blue Book Values on any dealer Web site helps bridge the trust gap between the dealer and car shoppers and produces a higher conversion rate of visitors to leads," said Mike Shawd, director of sales at AutoUSA. "LeadDriver gives the consumer another way to connect with the dealer while also providing added value. Dealers spend an awful lot of money on SEO to drive traffic to their Web sites with generally low conversion rates. LeadDriver raises the conversion rate and makes the dealer's spend on SEO that much more cost effective," Shawd added.
LeadDriver enhances the dealer's Web site by providing the functionality of kbb.com in a seamlessly integrated solution. It increases lead generation by keeping car buyers on the web site and converting them into leads by offering KBB Trade-In Values and allowing the customer to easily request an appointment to bring their trade-in to the dealership. This results in high quality leads with the car buyer's contact information, vehicle they are interested in purchasing and trade-in details, all in one lead. The design can be customized including color scheme, text and display options. There is no "per-lead" charge, but a flat monthly rate regardless of the amount of leads received.
Kelley Blue Book's top-rated Web site, http://www.kbb.com, averages 14 million visitors a month, and is considered one of the industry's most reliable sources for vehicle values, information and pricing.
"With AutoUSA now being an authorized reseller of LeadDriver, this new agreement enhances a long-standing relationship between Kelley Blue Book and AutoUSA," said Mike Grave, director of business development with Kelley Blue Book. "We look forward to bringing new leads and more business to their strong network of dealers."
