Free Automotive Listing "MegaSite" Created for Used Car Dealers as Gift to Industry

Steve Tackett’s “Carweek.com” has it’s big 20th anniversary coming up in November. “As a big thank you to the industry that’s been great to me and my team, I thought I’d give back by making www.usedcarsforsale.com absolutely free. I like the trade-off, dealers get great leads, traffic, and sales for free, we get to see which emerging technologies are the most effective at driving car shoppers to their sites, it’s a win-win”.

Tackett is taking the entire automotive listing concept back to its roots and is creating an environment where a dealer can list their entire inventory for free, forever as part of his rather unusual, if not eccentric gift to the used car industry.  The consumer can shop on a clean, user-friendly listing site and the car dealer will never have to hassle with billing issues or their leads being shared among other local dealers.  Tackett will have the only automotive listing site that is completely free to the industry and so far the response has been as expected, off the charts.

Used Cars for Sale has been a search engine query keyed in by millions of car shoppers every year. It is now a classified automotive listing site that will be driving millions of car buyers to used car dealer’s websites absolutely free, forever according to Mr. Tackett.  Once the advertising campaign kicks in, traffic to the new site will increase substantially as will leads, and sales to the dealers who have listed their inventory on the site.

Tackett, an upper 1% Google SEO expert who has collected over 5,000 search engine-based domain properties, has a plan that will help used car dealers increase sales while he drives traffic to them utilizing technologies and strategies few have the ken to imitate and or initiate. Says Tackett, “Dealers who have used car inventory now have a platform that charges them nothing to list their inventory, generate leads, or drive traffic.  We expect to make many car dealers very happy and the pay for lead sites very upset.  When you can get quality leads for free, why would you pay for it?".

Used Car Dealers Rally en Masse for Free Leads, More Visibility, and Increased Sales at No Charge.

Classified listing sites used to be basic referral sites with an ad revenue model.  Now, the big classified listing sites charge for leads, ad position, traffic, and listings.

The bottom line is that this free approach creates no ambiguity between vendor and dealer, allows car shoppers the necessary comparables all of the paid sites do, and the only ones making money are the used car dealers.  Used car dealers have long been clamoring for an affordable listing site and now they have one that provides exactly what they’ve needed for years along with a 0-cost CPA.
