VehiclesTEST Selects Flick Fusion's SMARTFLICKS Platform for Independent Test-Drive Videos

Urbandale, IA August 14, 2017 Flick Fusion today announced that VehiclesTEST, a content creator of independent test-drive videos, has selected Flick Fusion's SMARTFLICKS as its new video hosting and marketing platform. VehiclesTEST conducts independent road tests on the new Honda and Toyota models and creates broadcast-quality test-drive videos. Dealerships subscribe to the VehiclesTEST-SMARFLICKS feed and display the videos on website home pages, inventory pages, social media pages and more.

 

"We have admired the professionalism and high-quality content of VehiclesTEST’s videos for a long time, and we're very excited to be selected as its video host moving forward," said Tim James, COO of Flick Fusion. "We're even more excited for VehiclesTEST’s customers and the extra benefits they'll receive now that VehiclesTEST is utilizing SMARTFLICKS to help them get their video content in front of the right shoppers at the right time in the buying cycle."

 

"We selected Flick Fusion SMARTFLICKS because viewing a VehiclesTEST video on a mobile phone is as good—or better—as it is on a desktop," said Doug Thompson, Publisher of VehiclesTEST. "In addition to hosting, VehiclesTEST-SMARTFLICKS offers advanced marketing and distribution features that will help to increase organic SEO rankings, conversion rates and generate more leads for our dealership subscribers."

 

According to the Google report "The 5 Auto Shopping Moments Every Brand Must Own," test-drive videos are one of the top three types of video content that car shoppers search for, along with videos that show features and options and vehicle walkthroughs.

 

VehiclesTEST's test-drive videos include highway and city footage with commentary on the actual use of the vehicle, objective performance data on speed and acceleration, fuel economy results and highlights of new and improved features designed to help buyers make an informed purchase decision right on the dealer's website.
