BOOKITOUT.com offers car shoppers an enormous selection – over one million vehicles from more than 5,300 dealerships. BOOKITOUT.com launched in September 2011 under the leadership of Jonathan Hedy, a 23-year old entrepreneur; it started from nothing, and is currently the fastest growing automotive marketplace. Hedy is no stranger to the car business; his family owns the largest dealer management software company in the industry. “I attribute BOOKITOUT’s profound success to our business model and user experience. Dealerships and private sellers utilize our service, which provides car shoppers one of the largest and friendliest marketplaces available anywhere online,” says Hedy. In fact, no other automotive marketplace has experienced such rapid growth prior to turning ten months old.
BOOKITOUT.com allows dealerships to list an unlimited number of vehicles for sale, for $295 per month (or $300 per sale with no monthly fees). By charging dealers to list inventory, BOOKITOUT does not charge private sellers to list vehicles for sale and does not display obtrusive advertisements on the site. This approach, which focuses entirely on design and affordability, is responsible for BOOKITOUT’s rapid growth and top ratings by independent consumer reviews. For instance, BOOKITOUT’s search resembles one of the Internet’s most popular websites, Pinterest, and is preferred by 9 out of 10 users when compared to other automotive marketplaces. “We set out to make car shopping fun again,” states Hedy.
“BOOKITOUT.com brings car shopping into the 21st Century, and we promise to continually evolve with the needs of shoppers.” BOOKITOUT’s elastic cloud platform ensures continued growth will not result in bottlenecks or increased fees.
When asked about the success of dealerships, Hedy cited several examples, including a small, used-car startup that sold three cars during its opening month on BOOKITOUT.com. Similar success stories, coupled with huge savings in online advertising, have made BOOKITOUT the buzz amongst dealerships. According to dealer analysis, BOOKITOUT’s conversion rate is higher than any other listing service. “We appreciate the dealerships’ trust in our program, and are happy to increase their bottom line,” proclaims Hedy. Successful sales do not end with dealers. Unlike other sites that charge private sellers to list a vehicle for sale, BOOKITOUT.com not only allows individuals to list vehicles free of charge, but also guarantees a cash offer within 24 hours. This ensures private sellers can sell their car quickly and easily. Low prices and superior design have driven buyers and sellers to BOOKITOUT.com in record time; aggressive SEO and advertising campaigns promise to continue this trend.
