Here's where we lay it down in black and white with no flannel for our Car Sales Website Design for Dealers and Motor Traders.
Our MD used to be in the car trade (when it was Datsun and not Nissan) and, consequently, has many friends and drinking buddies who are now prominent in prestige car sales. Over the past two years, discussions (not meetings) have brought us to the simple conclusion that Dealer Principals are being charged far too much for a website which, basically, has pictures of cars on it.
We have now developed a system that's so easy to set up and really easy to use that we don't need to charge the earth for it. We've looked at others on the market, there's a popular one for just £300 a year but you won't be able to use it so have to employ a web savvy person to keep you car dealership site up and running.
We won't go into the technicalities of our car showroom websites here (there's a link to a demo below) so we will just list what you get.
Domain name - these are less than £10 a year to buy
Hosting - we will include that in the management fee
Support - we will throw that in as well
Set Up - we will supply instructions on how to set up your contact pages, about us pages etc.. but it really is a doddle but, if you really can't be bothered and just want to sell cars - £50.
Training - you won't need any. We have made the 'add car' bit so simple that anyone can do it - in minutes.
The price??? There's a set up fee of £750 and then £60 a month.
We will brand the site with your logo and colours, help you whenever we can (you'll get a mobile number for 24/7 assistance) and even ensure that you are right up there in the search engines.
In the past six months, we have set up sites for main dealers of Mercedes, Volvo and Mitsubishi plus a handful of 'one man bands' who deal cars from whatever premises that the can find.
In the first instance, send us an email via our contact page and take a look at the demo at www.car-sense.co.uk
