I know there are alot of lead generation companies out there. Our company UpLead Technology delivers 'live' or 'real time' leads. We attach a special 1-800 that has a powerful pre-recorded message regarding dealer incentive. Once they call the number they have three options 1 connect directly with the dealer to find out more, 2 choose the option of having someone from the dealership call them back or 3 they can just hang up. It doesn't matter, we have their contact information and we relay it back to your CRM in 2 seconds. We recommend that the sales staff call these people back within 60 seconds because you are reaching this audience at the height of their interest! You know where the source was from, what vehicle they're looking at and what time they called on the vehicle even on days you close early...even days that you are closed. Please realize no matter what you do, you will generate 200 to 300% more buyers from your website and Internet marketing. You will generate 300 to 400% more buyers from any and all of your existing advertising. Anytime you would like a free demo of how our technology works feel free to contact me. I promise I won't try to sell you. I'll let the technology sell itself and then you can ask me all the questions.

What if knowone submited alead?

What happens to our online industry if we keep feeding the Autobytel and Dealix of the world?

JD Powers study said consumer confidence was down 2. Something % meaning that fewer people we making leads.. They also said, the consumer did not expect to get what the asked for a Quote. My belief is dealers are slowly getting better at responding and consumers are getting what they asked for . But are too many responding to quickly now because the leads have been prostituted we are losing customers?

Where will we be in 3 more years with our current destructive path.

I spoke with a consumer who was a Dealix lead who told me, “she was no longer looking for a car”. It had only been 30 minutes so I asked “why”? The answer terrifies me…

She answered: I made a specific request and expected 1 response and that 5 dealers had already called in side of 30 minutes, I don’t want any more calls or email. Side note: Great response times we are starting to awaken as dealers however, as a consumer do you think she will ever do that again? I think not and how many people will she tell what happened?

This questions present us all with a problem.. Supporting Dealix, Autobytel, and the other notorious out for money only providers like Nissan and Ford will kill the electronic side of our business. Sure consumers will shop on line and walk in. We will not be able to show ROI and prove our worth any longer. Electronic leads will vanish. Let’s Fix It Now!

When you look at the quality providers like Kelly, Auto Usa, New cars plus and a few others they are selling vin specific leads they convert higher. I now believe the main reason is more than the brand or restate “ it is INTEGRITY”. They serve consumers and we should. Embrace company’s like this and fire the others as no good can come from it. Why would you want a stripped out leas? What I mean is a consumer goes thru a configuration or settles on a vin specific lead and then the vendor strips out the data so he can sell it 5 6 7 times to as many dealers as he can..

I have also noticed dealix sites like that first make a new car lead then land you on a finance form then a used car form. that would sell the lead concervitivly to 3 dealers each x 3 leads 9 phone calls in 15 minutes... It's us byung and creating this perhaps if we titen the circle to 5 miles around the rooftop. then only 3 leads would be generated? It's a thought

My question to all is How do we protect our investments and clean up the bad boys? I look forward to anyone who wants to reply.

Thanks, for your time and Happy Holidays

Dealer are spending a tremendous amount of money, time and effort driving visitors to their websites. But conversion rates still are abysmal. Give the customer what they're looking for and they'll tell you who they are! Add the RedNumbat today, and start satisfying your website visitors tonight.
Good selling to all,
