Inform and Be Informed: Rate Your Vendors and Enter the DrivingSales Vendor Ratings Contest. Last Chance!

The DrivingSales Vendor Ratings are now more robust than ever.  Thanks to dealers like you, the retail automotive industry has access to verified, honest feedback about industry professional services and products to inform profit-making decisions.  But the year isn’t over.  Be sure to rate your vendors to contribute to the thousands of ratings and reviews already collected.  The more dealers we get to anonymously share their opinions, the more accurate a picture the industry gets of the vendor landscape. Inform and be informed.

And hurry!  There is only one week left to enter into our DrivingSales Vendor Ratings Contest.  We feel so strongly about dealers having access to unbiased ratings and reviews that we’re giving away a $100 gift card to Amazon each week all throughout December to a dealer who rated a vendor.  Time files when you’re having fun and now there’s only one week left!  Rate your vendors for a chance to win: www.drivingsales.com/surveys/vr/customer-management

And that’s not all – Once the year is over, we'll do one final grand prize drawing from every dealer who submitted a review during 2011 and randomly select one lucky winner to receive a brand new MacBook Air!  The more ratings you provide, the more you're entered to win!  Log on to www.drivingsales.com/rate/contest for more information or start rating your vendors NOW.

Good luck and happy rating!

Thanks for the reminder, Lindsey. You're right - this kind of transparency and honesty regarding vendor services and products is critical for dealers. It's also a great tool for vendors - they can learn from unbiased sources how they can improve what they're offering to the industry... or to keep doing the things that dealers are loving. But, it all comes down to you, dealers, making your voices heard. Go! Rate your vendors!

What I love is that I can actually hear from others who have used the product and not just the "patsies" the Vendor keeps happy to use as a poster-child.
