UK car dealers can now present more pictures of their stock to the country’s car buyers thanks to a new solution from Motors.co.uk.
The new offering allows Motors.co.uk dealers to add up to 25 pictures for each of their adverts, giving consumers a wider selection of images to help them make the right choice when they search for their next car on the website.
This solution follows best practice advice from Autotrader.com, a Cox Automotive sister company, which found that its customers saw an 18 per cent rise in new and used car sales when they added an average of 25 images to their car adverts.*
Dermot Kelleher, Director of Marketing and Business Intelligence at Motors.co.uk, said: “We are committed to providing dealers with market leading solutions and the tools they need to successfully communicate with the country’s car buyers.
“By launching 25 Images we are following best practice guidelines, as demonstrated by our sister company AutoTrader.com, giving consumers access to a clear visual understanding of what they’re investing in, as well as the option to read about all of a car’s specifications. The new 25 Images solution gives dealers the chance to further profile each of their cars and ensure their potential customers have the detail they need ahead of making a purchase.”
Nearly three quarters of consumers use three or more search websites when looking for their next car, says Motors.co.uk
The majority of UK car buyers are using several services to find their next car, according to new consumer research from Motors.co.uk. The company’s recent Car Buyer Survey 2016 revealed that nearly three quarters of consumers (72 per cent) used three or more car search websites to find their next car. When asked how many car search websites they used to find their current car, 52 per cent of respondents said between three and five and 20 per cent said they had used more than six, while less than a third (28.4 per cent) visited fewer than three websites before making their choice. The survey revealed that 74 per cent of respondents used multiple car search sites to ensure they had seen all the available cars matching their requirements in their local area. Consumers are also using multiple sites to compare prices elsewhere in the country, with 47 per cent of respondents admitting they use car search websites to find vehicles outside of their local area. The survey, which examined consumer attitudes to online car shopping, also found that 70 per cent of consumers would consider buying either new or used cars, further demonstrating the blurring of the lines between traditional new and used car buyers, a trend influenced by changing attitudes to car finance. Dermot Kelleher, Director of Marketing & Business Intelligence at Motors.co.uk, said: “This data overwhelmingly shows the importance of dealers having a presence across multiple car search websites. Each engagement with a dealer’s brand or stock will compound to help their decision making. “Thanks to our network partnerships with trusted and well-known sites such as Parkers.co.uk, Motoring.co.uk and RAC Cars, amongst many others, we are able to offer dealers the ability to put their vehicles in front of consumers at multiple touchpoints. “Our network offers dealers a gateway to the internet, with a variety of media brands targeted at different consumers, ensuring their vehicles are visible to millions of car buyers. “We encourage dealers to think about their advertising across the value chain. It is incredibly important to generate the initial exposure through multiple websites. “But it is also important that other elements, such as presentation, pricing and a fantastic sales experience, create a great customer experience with the dealer’s brand at every stage of the buying process – not just when consumers walk into the dealership.”
