AutoUSA Auto Dealers Dominate Ward’s 2010 e-Dealer 100

Fort Lauderdale, Florida (April 14, 2010)AutoUSA (www.autousadealers.com), the industry’s leading provider of the highest quality Internet leads to auto dealers nationwide, today announced that 76% of  auto dealers on Ward’s 2010 e-Dealer 100 list purchase Internet leads from AutoUSA.  The Ward’s e-dealer 100 list is an annual ranking of the industry’s top 100 automotive retailers by total unit Internet sales. 

 

“AutoUSA is proud to be associated with these top dealers.  They understand the importance of the Internet and are using third party providers like AutoUSA to grow sales in a difficult environment,” said Phil DuPree, president of AutoUSA. 

 

AutoUSA was originally acquired in 2000 by AutoNation as a strategic investment to ensure the AutoNation stores would have access to the best online automotive websites. This same exposure works for the thousands of non-AutoNation dealers with which AutoUSA is contracted.  In addition, the ongoing relationship with AutoNation enables AutoUSA to use AutoNation’s sales data for detailed analysis to ensure that leads it sells close at the highest rate possible. AutoUSA has continued to focus on identifying reputable automotive websites and developing the technology to automatically collect and redistribute customer inquiries to all dealers across the US.  This business has grown to thousands of automotive retail franchises nationwide, as automotive dealers have experienced the effectiveness of working with customer requests from the Internet.

 

“We’re extremely pleased that our dealer clients consider us one of their key lead sources and a marketing partner that brings value to their organization. The fact that they are continuing to demonstrate their ability to excel during tough times is very rewarding,” said DuPree.
