Welcome to the new DrivingSales.com!

The most important part of our job here at DrivingSales is making sure we’re serving our dealers in the best way possible and listening to our community.  We’ve had our ears to the ground, reached out to many of you, and frantically taken notes on how we your experience on DrivingSales.com can be better.  And now, after nearly 18 months of push and pull, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of the new and improved DrivingSales.com website.

From first notice, you’ll see that many things have changed:

Forums come first:  The conversations between automotive professionals are what push each community member to be better. It is the centerpiece of DrivingSales and the driving force of the community. It’s where people engage, interact, and find inspiration to build more profitable businesses.  This is why we’ve placed the forums front and center.  You can see which posts are new, how active the conversations are, and easily contribute your piece to the puzzle.

Celebrate the Individual:  Logging in to your DrivingSales.com account is going to change your world.  We’ve totally revamped the profile pages, allowing you to share more impactful and relevant information, and make better connections. And now, the information you see is the most relevant to you.  You’ll want to be sure to select your departments and topics of interest because that is what will shape the content you see in your feed.  Of course, you’ll always be able to find any of the information posted on DrivingSales.com by navigating through topic or individual blog pages, but now you won’t have to put up with those pesky posts that you could care less about.  If SEO is your thing, then let your feed be riddled with SEO. If you’re like me and not so inclined toward SEO, worry not.  It doesn’t have to be there if you don’t want it.

We’ve stepped up our game – it’s time for you to step up yours.  You’ll notice the new addition of achievements and the DScore.  Your engagement with the community online and your activity in the industry offline will begin to form your treasure chest of achievement badges and your ever-climbing DScore.  Fear not, loyal DrivingSales members, all activity will be retroactively included, making sure the years you’ve spent posting and commenting will live on forever.

There’s plenty of new zoozoos and whamwhams to dig into, so have at it!  Notifications have been dusted off, profiles have been upgraded, and there’s lots of great navigation to dive into.  But the one thing that hasn’t changed through all of this is our commitment to serving you, the dealer.  If you have any questions or feedback, leave them here or email me directly.   We’re excited to hear what you think!

Of course, nothing about the DrivingSales.com Update would be possible without a HUGE shout out to the team that made it possible.  Great work done by Steven Richard, Kevin Vance, Mark Leeds, and Brian Young, led by Eric Miltsch and Jared Hamilton.  Way to go, team!

Love it DrivingSales Team! Very user friendly. One plus would be notification when blogs are commented on.
