Is TrueCar going on the offensive? Take a look at this article from the NY Times.

Is TrueCar going on the offensive?

Take a look at this article that appears on page one of today's (Saturday, 2/11/12) NY Times Metro Section: "Car Dealers Wince at a Site to End Sales Haggling".

While it is great to see this topic covered by the NY Times it's a little disappointing to see that the reporter,…


5 Take Aways from Digital Dealer 7

Posted on November 8, 2009 at 10:20am 3 Comments

1) Keep it simple

It’s easy to come away from a conference like this with information overload and a sense of being overwhelmed and asking yourself where do I start? Keep it simple. This was certainly the underlying message at many of the most recent sessions. Stay focused. Remember to Crawl, Walk, Run (thanks VJ). Stop Chasing Shiny Objects (thank you Mr. Stauning) get the basics under control first. Don’t go it alone. Remember your team mates within your… Continue

Hello Chris,
Hope all is well. Thought you maybe be interested in the industries first online negotiation system…

After installing Widestorm in the dealerships lead conversion increased by 50%, they have sold 5 deals in 8 days for an avg. gross of $1800.00 per copy and the customers are blow away with the experience (We survey everyone). And all we did was just add it to their website…no marketing etc.

If you would like to learn more please let me know.

PS: They are working 12 deals as we speak.

Good discussion question. Hopefully you didn't mind one of the vhr providers making themselves available to answer questions. I could have answered a lot of them, but the pissing match it would have turned isn't the route I want it to go. However, I do believe that the only way to get accurate answers is through the supplier itself. As you can see within my response I do not speak negatively to the competition, they have done and continue to provide a solid service to dealers.

You'll find me at Booth #3 at the Digital Dealer show in Orlando (April 21st-23rd)

Chris, I don't know if you got the notice from 4Q or not, but they've upgraded it now so it runs as an overlay to the actual website rather than a discreet page prior to a new window/tab opening up... much less invasive.

Look forward to seeing you and hearing about your results. You should publish them in this forum (and on the Ai-Dealer forum related to the original post)

It is always a pleasure to see you. I will be back in a couple of weeks.

Love to hear the results a dealer gets from implementing the survey on their website.

Let me know if you implement it and what you find out.

good to hear from you Chris. I am glad vAuto is working out for your stores. I hope to see you again in April at the conference.

Hi Chris,

As one "car guy" to another I am anxiously awaiting your input and replies to some of my posted forums. I value input from my fellow vendors but our shared retail roots suggest that your insights will prove to more valued by my dealer clients.
