Instant messaging (IM) and live chat solutions have been used on e-retailer and bank websites for years, but they didn't address the specific needs of auto dealers, so the industry has been slow to embrace chat
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 1, 2009
ContactAtOnce!, a leading provider of internet marketing tools that move online shoppers into live conversations with car dealers, today announced their sponsorship of a new Auto Dealer Live Chat Software Tips and Techniques Blog featuring user-generated tips and techniques for auto sales people seeking to more effectively utilize live chat software to sell more cars.
"Instant messaging (IM) and live chat solutions have been used on e-retailer and bank websites for years, but they didn't address the specific needs of auto dealers, so the industry has been slow to embrace chat," said John Hanger, CEO of ContactAtOnce!. "Now, popular automotive website providers including Cars.com and AutoMart.com are enabling specialized auto dealer versions of chat, driving dealer usage to all-time highs. Providing this blog is a way to help automotive sales people share information and ideas about integrating chat into their sales process and utilizing it as a communications and marketing tool to convert more website visitors into bona fide sales leads," Hanger said.
The Auto Dealer Live Chat Software Tips and Techniques Blog is available and accessible immediately for users of chat and instant messaging software, regardless of vendor.
