Craigslist charged my card 10x. Thank you, Craigslist, 1,575 ads at $5 is supposed to be $7,875 and now I have a $78,750 charge on my card. Thank goodness our dealers pay us a lot of money for the posting software so we don’t mind dealing with these issues! Yago de Artaza Paramo yago@DealerEProcess.com
Craigslist just changed their URL structure to include Make Model and trim in some cases. Small change but perhaps an attempt to have a better SEO structure? You can now also send larger photos and the customer can expand. The small photo is at 640X480 (standard automotive feed) and the new larger photo allowed 1200X900
Selective Posting Interface This new interface will allow the dealer to select which cars they want posted to Craigslist. It works for both new and used inventory. This will useful for budget conscious dealers that want to select a group of used cars but also for new car managers that want to advertise just a small group of new cars. I can think already about many scenarios where this will be useful to a new car manager: You can run a 20 truck campaign ($100 for a month) on F-250’s diesel if you have a heavy rebate on those and compete with dealers selling ‘current -1 -2 models’. I also see it very useful for VW running the $199 Jetta lease or Honda in the Civic. Non Prepaid Areas We now have the ability to post to any area within the United States whether you can buy prepaid blocks or not.

One of the problems with Craigslist working from a feed and having to pay $5 a vehicle is that is made in unaffordable for new cars to post the entire inventory.
To solve that problem we just developed a selection tool, free of charge included with you…
For those of you posting with us on CraigsList we can now post to EbayClassifieds for free. As an example see: http://www.ebayclassifieds.com/user/Definitive-Motor With EbayClassifieds, there are a few limitations such as: We can only post 25 ads per day per account We cannot post any duplicates Ads also stay live on this platform for 60 days We’re only allowed to upload 8 images but the image display is very nice The reply via email is a form which in the future may give us the ability to send more complete leads to a CRM as compared to Craigslist. Notice that the ads stay live for 60 days so at this time we are not automatically setting up every dealership but just by request. For more information contact email@example.com
