Long Island, N.Y. (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
Long Island Exchange Inc., a localized advertising and Internet media company based in central Long Island, is announcing a new beneficial feature which is automatically included for all automotive dealership clients who promote and display vehicle inventory on the LongIslandExchange.com sites – social media page promotion.
http://www.LIUsedCars.com, an innovative addition to http://LongIslandExchange.com, adds a proprietary system which displays automotive inventory for local car dealerships, and syndicates this data, as well as dealer call tracking phone numbers and email leads to Long Island’s used car dealers.
“Today, we’re announcing a new beneficial feature which includes social media marketing for dealerships. Auto dealers which display inventory with us also have their social profiles linked to, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube and RSS functionality for their listings. This feature is automatically included, and unlike most vehicle syndication sites, we don’t promote our own pages with these icons, we promote the dealers social accounts themselves,” said John Colascione, Founder and Managing Partner.
A recent report from a highly regarded automotive advertising case study has shown that the primary lead generator for automotive research in the United States has been the Internet, over all other forms of advertising. The report stated that customers research vehicles the most online, and actually visit just 1 to 2 dealerships on average before they make a purchase, further indicating that used car sales are heavily dependent on visibility online first and foremost over any other advertising medium.
