Interactive Financial Marketing Group (IFMG), a division of Dominion Enterprises, today announced an updated version of its 1-800-CAR-LOAN vanity number program for automotive dealers.

Originally introduced in 1989, the 1-800-CAR-LOAN program allows car dealers to optimize their existing digital and traditional advertising with this easy-to-remember phone number. IFMG estimates car dealers who use 1-800-CAR-LOAN sell twice as many cars as those dealers using Internet leads alone.

IFMG will now offer expanded digital and mobile support under the 1-800-CAR-LOAN brand exclusively for dealers. Enhanced features available under a licensing arrangement include:

  •     1-800-CAR-LOAN payment calculator mobile application for iPhones and Droid OS smartphones featuring click-to-call functionality and a car loan application
  •     Dealer-branded web pages that feature dealer inventory* and are optimized for local search and use on mobile devices
  •     Digital display ads, banners, and buttons for dealers to utilize in existing advertising channels

*Auto dealers currently using inventory lead generation solutions from GET AUTO®, another division of Dominion Enterprises and IFMG’s sister company, will be able to add their GET AUTO inventory to their featured dealer pages on

“Over 60% of our web leads are using cell phones in their car loan application,” said Tom Feary, general manager of IFMG. “It’s important that we provide our customers ways to leverage mobile usage. Vanity numbers such as 1-800-CAR-LOAN can be a big differentiator for dealers on the local level.”
