Long Island Used Cars, DBA, Cars Digital, Inc., is a separate business and division of a corporation registered in State of New York. Long Island Used Cars was born in 2012 and is a Member of National Independent Automobile Dealers Association. The division focuses primarily on advertising used vehicles for sale in the Long Island region, yet itself, does not sell used cars; it advertises used cars for sale by dealers.
Long Island Used Cars began simply as an online shopping section of a popular local website called Long Island Exchange®, and grew to become its own service. The staff at Long Island Used Cars consists of the majority of staff at Cars Digital, Inc., as the automotive division has become one of the most successful for the company.
How The Service Works:
Local automotive dealers sign up with the service by written contract which typically takes place by a visit to their location. Long Island Used Cars than reaches out to the dealers web site provider or data export partner and requests the inventory be delivered nightly via technical means. Long Island Used Cars then uses this data, which includes images, comments, descriptions, prices and more, to “syndicate” this information via its own proprietary software called TurboListings™ (yes, we’ve built that too). Syndication includes sending the inventory to other automotive related websites, including LIUsedCars.com, local websites to the Island, and many others. Dealerships pay a simple all-inclusive monthly fee, based on the size of their inventory and Long Island Used Cars then does all the work.
Results and Tracking:
Our TurboListings™ software which powers our system, tracks everything. Each dealership is assigned a trackable phone number, as well as a unique email address for all web based email leads which are assigned and sent to the appropriate dealership. Regardless of where those email and/or phone leads originate from, TurboListings records, counts, and analyzes the type of lead, where it needs to be delivered, in what format (either ADF, XML or HTML), whether it is spam (at which point it would be filtered out), rebrands it, and dispatches it off to its appropriate location. TurboListings™ track everything so that we can keep track of a dealers return on investment. Dealers than follow up on these leads and close deals. Yes, it really is fantastic- and that’s why it works so well. It's also the reason we have grown to be the Best Place for Used Cars on Long Island™ for both dealers and shoppers.
We’re Going National:
Yes, you’ll soon see LIUsedCars.com nationally; albeit, by a different brand. Our system has been such a success here in the Long Island region, that we have already began to move outside of Long Island with dealers in Brooklyn, Queens, and even New Jersey. We’ll still use our TurboListings™ software to get the job done, however, we will have a national brand. TurboListings™ will power our new national website.
