AutoUSA Releases PowerListings 2.0, Driving More Traffic to Facebook Pages

Fort Lauderdale, FL – July 12, 2011 – AutoUSA (www.autousadealers.com) announced today the release of PowerListingsSM 2.0 for auto dealers, designed to drive traffic from online classified site Craigslist to dealerships’ Facebook pages. Linking directly to inventory on Facebook provides opportunities for dealerships to increase engagement with potential customers. AutoUSA’s fully managed solution is also time-optimized to automatically post inventory on Craigslist when the most customers in a dealership’s market are viewing the inventory.

“PowerListingsSM 2.0 delivers in-market customers to dealerships that are effectively using Facebook to engage with customers, greatly increasing sales opportunities,” said Phil DuPree, President of AutoUSA.

PowerListingsSM 2.0 expands on the success of AutoUSA’s original PowerListings. “The feedback we have from hundreds of dealers is that PowerListings is one of their best ROI tools, with many click-throughs from customers looking at inventory on Craigslist,” said DuPree.

PowerListings 2.0 provides dealers with the following benefits:

Ÿ - Links from Craigslist inventory take potential customers directly to a landing page on the dealership’s Facebook page.

Ÿ - Inventory tab on the dealership’s Facebook page increases customer engagement and “Likes.”

Ÿ - Videos of inventory on YouTube are generated and posted on Facebook daily, boosting dealerships’ SEO rankings and generating more leads.

Ÿ - Inventory postings and videos automatically keep Facebook content relevant and updated.

Ÿ - Postings on Craigslist are time-optimized to appear when the most customers in a dealership’s market are viewing inventory.

Ÿ - Live market monitoring and reporting provide visibility into customer habits, trends and effectiveness of dealership ads.
