May was a great month for our WideStorm Dealers!

Last month our dealers experienced great results by making slight changes to their Internet sales process and using our incredibly simple technology.

Check out some of their results:

Average Return on Investment or ROI was 770% That means for every $100 invested, they received $870 in return. Try that in the Stock Market!

The top ROI performer had an ROI of 6225% first month on the system! We know it sounds incredible but it is true.

These results are not sacrificing gross either. The average gross was around $1500 with some dealers hitting average gross over $3500 a copy!

We are also seeing conversion ratios on a dealer's website jump by 60% to 90% almost immediately. The Tonkin Autogroup had 558 additional leads from their website last month alone. This was only their first full month on the system. So if you are looking for a way to increase quality Internet leads from your existing web site you need to check this out today.

So how did they achieve these incredible results?

By making a slight modification to the Internet process and offering consumers the opportunity to negotiate earlier in the sales process. The WideStorm system can help your dealership realize real results in a short amount of time. Easily within 30 to 60 days.

So will this work in your dealership in your market? Absolutely. In fact we guarantee results. You're probably not used to a vendor guaranteeing results, but we are so confident in the WideStorm system, that we can make this guarantee with confidence.

57% increase in conversation ratio within 2 weeks after they installed Widestorm group wide.
Ron Tonkin Honda (First store to launch Widestorm): Before Widestorm vs. after Widestorm= 89.6% increase in the sites conversation ratio

Close Ratio on Negotiation Opportunities:
10% close ratio on all opportunities within first 10 days after the group launch.
Avg. gross profit per copy: $1395.00 (front and back/new&used)
Another example of a dealer and what they did last month. Their first month on the system

7 Deals

Total Front End Gross $11,605 Total Back End $12,012

Total Gross $23,618

Over $3300 average gross per copy.

So here is what we know so far

2. We are seeing increased selling opportunities by offering online negotiation.
3. Customers are enjoying the experience.
4. We are selling more vehicles while holding gross.
