Redesigned Launches: More Targeted, More Relevant Profit-building Information and Connections

Upgrades to award-winning site include industry-first dScore to measure relevant user activity


Salt Lake City, UT – December 20, 2012 – DrivingSales today announced the launch of its redesigned website, the world’s largest automotive social network. The new includes a strong new social design that encourages even more meaningful professional connections through the community, access to the latest and most relevant information, and improved data collection on community activity to improve targeting for DrivingSales partners. The company also announced the launch of dScore, a new way for those involved in the dealership world to engage with one another, generate activity, demonstrate experience, and stay plugged in to the most relevant content.


“Improving the quality and flow of profit-building, performance-improving information to dealers is our mission at DrivingSales. So, over the last year, we solicited feedback from the community on how we can do better, and the result is a new, improved and even more engaging and interactive,” said DrivingSales CEO and founder Jared Hamilton. “Not only have we enhanced the platform for community interaction, but community members can now ask/select which information arrives in their news feed – plus the new dScore provides a compelling measure of activity for the community and user, further connecting members with the information they want. With this launch, we believe that there is no better, more user-friendly place for dealers to make the connections they need and to find the peer-tested information to help build their business than”


Features and benefits of the redesigned website and platform include:  

  • Improved navigation to the content sections most important to dealers and vendors.
  • Enhanced website efficiencies, including quick access to trending content, most popular and recent activity, plus better site speed and performance.
  • Revamped profile pages and improved content selection – via profile department and interest selection – to deliver more relevant content choices to the user's stream.
  • Measurement, through the new dScore, of a user’s activity within his/her area of expertise; includes achievement badges.
  • Better content targeting for advertising partners, including increased exposure opportunities through vendor-ratings and reviews widgets.
