Your posts look VERY professional and much cleaner than ours, we have a ton of white space and the page just looks cluttered.

As for Pre-owned we have 3 stores on this strip (New Kia, New Dodge and a Truck Center) about 85-90 pre-owned at any given time.
Most are higher-end vehicles really, nothing under $6000. We might get a Gem of a trade every-once and awhile you know that 98' Saturn with 45k that Grandma only drove to Bingo $4995.
I posted a 96' Bronco for a co-worker a couple weeks ago and shot a video for it. I had over 90 views of the video in a week... Either there were a lot of people looking for a Bronco OR there was plenty of traffic on CL that week. Can't say.
Cargigi has some cool software that comes with their product, it shows you a small pop-up in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen when someone is viewing one of your cars. It gets REALLY annoying because there is a new pop-up everytime you get the last one closed.…
Facebook when at your dealership. Maybe offer them a discount in service, parts or accessories.
Another suggestion would be to create a welcome tab and use the fbml app (Facebook Markup Language) to create a custom landing page for first time visitors to your Facebook page. You can see an example on our Facebook page at http://www.Facebook.com/FreshMicroSites (may require HTML programming knowledge) then set the welcome tab as the first tab a new visitor sees before liking your page.
My last suggestion would be once you have a few likes on your page (I believe 25) you can then change the URL to a much cleaner URL like the one above. Instead of having something like http://www.facebook.com/pages/124567532 or similar. To do this, once logged into facebook, just visit http://www.facebook.com/username select the page you want to change and enter your desired name. That's it.
And of course there are some obvious ones like running your inventory on your Facebook page, youtube channel, twitter tab, dealer rater, etc.
Hope this was helpful.…
f your images. The key is knowing what features will really benefit you. Megapixles are probably the most talked about feature of any digital camera, and for taking pictures to put on your website, they are one of the least important. Your images are going to be viewed on a computer monitor, and the resolution of most monitors is under two megapixles. Any new camera you buy today will have enough resolution. Six or eight megapixles is more than you will ever need, but you will likely end up with more because camera companies keep increasing the megapixles since this is such a popular feature. What is important is the lens of the camera. You want a camera that has a wide lens (24mm-28mm) and that closes by itself. The wider lens will allow you to get the entire car in the picture without having to stand so far back. This is very important if you are taking photographs in an indoor photo booth. A camera with a 35mm lens may require you to be 15 feet away while a 24mm lens will create a similar image from only 9 feet away. The other important feature of the lens is that it must close and cover itself. Some cameras require you to place the lens cap over the lens when you are finished. This is fine in some conditions, but in a dealership the cap will likely get lost or not be used, resulting in a dirty lens and blurry pictures. Cameras that have a lens that closes into the body of the camera with an automatic cover will stay cleaner longer, and there are no parts to get lost. Remember, great photographs are a big part of getting customers from the web to your lot.Mark Rosewww.professionalimageconsultants.net …
