From Pay-Per-Lead Inventory Listing Network
the industry's leading provider of the highest quality, Internet-generated
consumer leads to auto dealers nationwide, today announced a 500% increase
in email and phone leads for dealers since April 2009 from its pay-per-lead
Inventory Listing Network, powered by Vast.com. The company also reported
that the number of dealers listing their inventory through the service has
been steadily increasing at a rate of 20% per month.
"AutoUSA is experiencing great success and phenomenal growth with its
pay-per-lead Inventory Listing Network," said Mike Shawd, director of sales
at AutoUSA. "Vast.com is doing an incredible job exposing dealership
inventory to in-market buyers."
AutoUSA's Inventory Listing Network currently provides exposure to 15
million unique in-market car shoppers monthly, and is expected to grow to an
estimated 20 million buyers by year-end, for a dealer's used and new
inventory listings. Inventory is posted at top automotive sites such as
Kelley Blue Book's The Trusted MarketplaceSM, AOL Autos, CarPerks.com,
Overstock.com, AutoMedia.com, CarDomain.com and AutoUSA's used car website,
The service also includes a pay-for-performance pricing plan in which
dealers only pay for the valid leads they receive each month. When
inventory becomes depleted, dealers only pay for leads on available
"Instead of paying per lead for used car leads, most dealers pay a monthly
subscription fee to list their vehicles on a website. When the inventory
shrinks, like what has happened on the other side of the Cash for Clunkers
program, the dealer ends up with fewer leads, but still has to pay the
subscription fee," said Phil DuPree, president of AutoUSA. "Our
pay-for-performance service eliminates this entire problem."
Dealers who sign up for AutoUSA Inventory Network can have their inventory
appearing online within a week, with a phone number shown on each listing,
allowing consumers to contact the dealer while viewing the listing.
There are no long-term contract commitments, and dealers can opt out of the
program at any time with a 30-day notice. AutoUSA also employs a stringent
scrubbing process for incoming leads from the Vehicle Listing Network that
eliminates duplicates and filters out leads with missing or incorrect
contact information, such as phone and email addresses.
"We've been using AutoUSA's Vehicle Listing Network for the past year and
the quality of leads is superior to all the other lead providers," says
Suzanne Brief, e-commerce director for Dallas Dodge Chrysler Jeep. "I'm in
the process of severing relationships with most of my 3rd party providers,
and AutoUSA will be one of the few we keep."
Vast.com is a search and advertising platform optimized to match every
shopper to specific, available cars for sale and to a responsive dealer.
The Vast network currently reaches 15 million unique in-market car shoppers
monthly, and is expected to grow to an estimated 20 million buyers by
year-end, with 4.5 million used and new vehicle inventory listings.
