Fort Lauderdale, FL – AutoUSA, America’s best source of online customers, has launched a new Dealer Resource Center that includes an AutoUSA Online Customer EstimatorSM tool, giving dealers a real time look at the amount of Internet customers available to them at any given 30 day window. AutoUSA Online Customer EstimatorSM allows dealers to view the lead estimates in their own or competitors’ territories, then purchase as many leads as desired. The AutoUSA Online Customer EstimatorSM can be accessed through the new AutoUSA Dealer Resource Center at www.autousadealers.com.
In the AutoUSA Online Customer EstimatorSM window, dealers may enter in zip code, franchise, make of car and choose from multiple radius options. A report with the number of customers based on the criteria they selected is then e-mailed to them instantly.
“Often times dealers’ lock themselves into a certain number of leads or a certain radius, and this tool is designed so they can see all the consumers in their area who have visited top third party sites like Edmunds, Kelley, MSN and Yahoo! and are interested in purchasing cars,” said Phil DuPree, President of AutoUSA. “The AutoUSA Online Customer EstimatorSM is a powerful tool for dealers to have at their fingertips because we know at AutoNation how critical it is for dealers to have data like this to stay ahead of their competitors.”
