After surviving thirty years in the auto industry as an auto dealer, automotive advertising agency and more recently as the President of AdAgencyOnline.Net - a free automotive advertising resource portal - I can honestly say that I have seen everything and today's tough economic times are no exception!
I started selling cars in 1975 in the middle of that decade's gas crisis and the premature announcement of the "death of the american auto industry" was as widely exaggerated then as it is now.
Frankly, if free inventory websites selling Automobiles Cars Trucks etc. - like EveryCarListed.Com - existed then it would have put the auto industry and the economy back on track much sooner.
Every Car Listed allows consumers who are looking for used cars, or who have their own used cars for sale, to advertise their Pre-Owned Cars for free to a national audience of like minded consumers who are selling a car and most likely buying cars themselves.
Auto dealers are also now able to sell cars online for free while connecting with buyers and sellers before, during and after the sale with sites like EveryCarListed.
This online process of selling cars, and even arranging auto financing through posted vendors, is a modern day marvel that has been developed as a result of the struggles that the auto industry is now facing and it promises to help us turn this corner faster than the last time around.
Selling Sports Cars, Certified Pre-Owned Cars, Auto Warranty programs and basically everything that a consumer needs on one website with virtually every manufacturer and every model available while featuring Certified Cars alongside private "as-is" vehicles provides consumers competitive comparisons in product and price that they need to get the best possible deal.
Of course a Certified Used Car can only be purchased from an auto dealer but since both private sellers and auto dealers are able to compete on an even playing field the value for each can be determined by the price.
I am the first to recognize that the auto industry is in bad shape for a number of reasons, some that they could have controlled and some that they couldn't, but the good news is that auto dealers are doing whatever it takes to sell cars and the smart shopper can get deals today that they couldn't get yesterday and may not be able to get tomorrow!
The point is - bad news for the auto industry is good news for consumers - BUT, EveryCarListed.Com is good news for both!
Their free automotive advertising site has come at just the right time to put all of the pieces of the puzzle back together and help struggling auto dealers and consumers come to the best deals for both.
