Higher or Lower? Motors.co.uk test dealers’ used car knowledge with ‘Know Your Motors?’

by admin

05 24, 2018 | Posted in Car Dealer Blog, General | 0 comments

Are UK car dealers the masters of the used vehicle market? Motors.co.uk is aiming to answer that question by putting its customers' knowledge to the test with a brand new interactive quiz. 'Know Your Motors?' is a six-week competition testing dealers' understanding of the used car market and the value of popular vehicles. This 'Play Your Cards Right' style quiz, asks dealers to prove if they know which cars are worth more or less than other similar vehicles. The competition - which is can be found via the Motors.co.uk response tracking platform The Eye - runs weekly, with different vehicles type categories tested during each round. As the competition progresses the best performers will be in with a chance of winning a prize. The quiz begins with an image of a car, in the style of a vehicle listing on Motors.co.uk, and is presented with its most recent retail value. The participant will then be presented with four more vehicles and have to click on 'Higher' or 'Lower' options to decide if its sale price on Motors.co.uk was worth more or less than the previous one. The competition is set to run for six weeks, with all Motors.co.uk dealers invited to make one entry per week. The three best performing dealers will then be awarded Amazon vouchers, with the top prize worth £250. Dealers are also encouraged to access The Eye, which was recently refreshed and mobile-optimised, to help them understand consumer response to their listed vehicles. Motors.co.uk Marketing & Business Intelligence Director Dermot Kelleher said: "We are always trying to create new fun and interactive ways to engage with our customers, and 'Know Your Motors?' gives dealers the chance to prove what they know about the value of popular cars against each other. "While we want to offer our dealers some friendly competition, we are also urging them to log into The Eye more often so they can get a better understanding of the consumer response to their vehicle listings. We recently refreshed and mobile-optimised the solution to ensure dealers can track response wherever they are on any internet-connected device. "Our records often show that dealers do their best to stay on top of their leads but some opportunities can be missed. For example, we recently discovered that more than a fifth of telephone enquires go unanswered, and while this is understandable due to working in busy dealership environments, we want to help our dealers follow up every lead generated by the Motors.co.uk Network."

Facebook buyers can use location settings in Marketplace to find nearby goods, and Motors.co.uk dealers will benefit from their stock appearing in search results alongside private seller posts for relevant used cars terms - such as specific makes and models.
 
This experience is being brought to the UK after being introduced in the U.S. last October. Motors.co.uk will be activating dealers during the coming months.
 
Phill Jones, Managing Director at Motors.co.uk, said: "We are delighted to announce this new solution which will help our dealers reach more online in-market car buyers through their relationship with Motors.co.uk.
 
"This solution will connect our customers with more consumers who are already using Facebook to search for their next car - making both dealer engagement and the car search process easier.
 
"Our recent Motors.co.uk Network performance has shown more consumers are using our partners more than ever to search for vehicles and we will continue to strive towards extending this reach even further."
 
Martin Forbes, Chief Operating Officer at Cox Automotive UK, added: "We're excited to be working with Facebook Marketplace, hitting a sweet spot to identify an ideal solution for both our dealers and in-market car buyers.
 
"While boosting the exposure of our customers' listings, we are also making the car search process straight forward for consumers by adding stock to one of their favourite online platforms that they visit frequently to source quality products."
