Auto Dealer Locate
Tina McDowell, Harry Schneider, and Mary Johnston have been working on this project at night and on weekends for months. The website debuted in 2018, and they couldn’t be prouder! By working with local dealerships and talking to car buyers in their neighborhood, they realized that existing platforms aren’t good enough.
Classified sites and aggressive advertising are a major turn off for potential buyers and leasers because a vendor often blocks the direct connection between them and the sales team. This creates an unhealthy cycle where people are continually browsing through inventory that is irrelevant, and dealers rely heavily on third-party leads that have a meager conversion rate.
Auto Dealer Locate creates a new way for these two groups to find each other. By allowing for a search that is both geographic and brand-specific, it gets rid of a lot of the guesswork that shoppers often experience. They can easily see which stores have their ideal vehicle, thereby cutting down their search time. At the same time, dealers listed in our directory receive greater exposure. Since we have zero forms on our site, we’ve cut out the need for a middleman vendor. All we do is streamline the process.
