3rd party internet leads

We are looking at cutting one of our 3rd party vendors (I won't say who it is so I don't piss anyone off!) and want to replace them with someone else. We are currently closing 1% of their leads year to date and pay a good amount of money for those leads.

We have a couple of ideas of who we would like to replace them with, but I wanted to throw this post out first to see if anyone has some solid recommendations. Just like any other dealer, we won't to receive a reasonably quality lead for the money we are paying and would be happy with around a 5% closing ratio.

Any suggestions???

Hey Bryant, Great idea coming here to ask. Like many, We also have an option. Our service helps dealers capture more FIRST party leads. These close at typically 14-30%, and come in smaller numbers (sometimes), heading off some busy work. Although we believe in a balance between 1st and 3rd party leads, if you're not getting enough from your leads in total, putting energy into 1st party leads will help your immediate ROI like no other. Check out LeadCrafters.com. Free trial. No strings. No term agreements. Feel free to call. We'd love to help. Chris Purser 954-399-2524

Hey Bryant- I would seriously consider investing those dollars into your own efforts at the dealership. I took a peak at your site and surrounding area and there is definitely room for improvement. Look at doing some competitive PPC, renewing your content strategy on a blog that's hosted on your main site, and enhance your calls to action. Another 3rd party likely means more of the same. Instead of paying to subsidize their marketing -- look at benefiting short and long term from investing those dollars in your dealership... -Aaron
