The Automotive Advertising Network (AAN), the most innovative way for car dealers to advertise their cars online, welcomes the Checkered Flag Auto Group  to their network of savvy dealers who are offering consumers assistance in buying a new or used cars. 
 
The AAN, is compromised of national, regional and local advertising websites that offer car dealers unprecedented visibility for the cars that they sell. The AAN includes both new and used cars that are for sale at reputable car dealers nationwide. The Automotive Advertising Network does not list cars sold by individual consumers as a protection for car buyers.
 
The Automotive Advertising Network's national car sales portal is located at www.cardealersale.com and lists all cars that are available for sale from member dealers.   The website is designed for the optimal consumer experience for Internet shoppers. The site has also been optimized for the new Apple iPad. 
When the CarDealerSale.com website is accessed by iPad users, the car detail pages utilize the full screen capabilities of the iPad. The AAN is the first optimized website for car dealer inventory advertising by eliminating distracting advertising banners on car detail pages and utilizing the iPad's full screen capabilities. Since car listing pages are free from ads, the details fit perfectly on the iPad's attractive display.
 
In addition to the national exposure  Checkered Flag Auto Group will have on www.cardealersale.com, their cars will also be listed on the Automotive Advertising Network's brand specific and regional websites that include http://toyota.cardealersale.com , http://www.virginiabeachdealers.org and other regional automotive news websites. Since Checkered Flag is located in Virginia Beach, the AAN allows member dealers to advertise their cars nationally as well as locally to match the search behavior of consumers in their primary market area.
 
In addition to advertising their cars, trucks or SUV's in stock online, the AAN provides the CarPort App™ which allows dealers to post their inventory on Facebook and popular blog platforms that include WordPress, Blogger and TypePad. The CarPort App™ gives car dealers unprecedented advertising opportunities to leverage social media platforms to publish content and integrate the cars that they sell.
 
The Checked Flag Auto Group utilizes the CarPort App™ on their popular blog located at http://blog.checkeredflag.com/ . Visitors can read the latest news and advice provided by Checkered Flag and in their news posts they can include a live, real-time samples of cars that they have in stock. Checkered Flag Auto Group's blog uses TypePad technology; a popular blogging platform.
 
The CarPort App™ seamlessly also integrates into Facebook Fan Pages using a separate tab to research cars that are in stock for any member in the AAN. The functionality allows dealers to place their inventory one-click away from consumers who visit their Fan Page without over-selling their cars in their Facebook Wall postings. This is the perfect balance of becoming a Trust Agent by not pushing cars in daily updates on their Facebook Wall.   You can see CarPort App that Checkered Flag is utilizing on Facebook using this link:
 
The Automotive Advertising Network is open to call new and used cars dealers in the United States and Canada and is offering special promotional pricing until June 1st. For additional details contact PCG Digital Marketing at 732-450-8200.
