There is constant pressure to reduce the price of vehicles from the advertising stage, where third parties rate the prices of your vehicles, to the negotiation phase where shoppers often have the upper hand. PureVIN allows you to present the pure value of your vehicle in your advertising, on your website, and on your Window Stickers. Through a combination of technology and research, Xcite Automotive identifies the specific features included with your vehicle when it was new, assigns a value to these features, and helps you display the value of these features on your website and in your advertising.
Connecting your on-the-lot experience with your digital presence has never been more important than it is now. Xcite Window Stickers emphasize brand awareness, instill customer confidence, and vibrantly tell your story to your potential buyer to unify their shopping experience and present them with the information they need to make a purchase decision. With Xcite’s new Legal Size Window Sticker, you have more room than ever to share “why buy here” statements, F&I options, SMS text communication options, and more.
The FTC can penalize dealerships $41,484 per violation for vehicles that do not have the correct Buyers Guide displayed on used car inventory. That’s per vehicle! With our on-the-lot techs handling your compliance and sticker application needs, you can be confident that you will not be violating the FTC Used Car Rule in the event of a surprise compliance inspection. Need custom verbiage on your Buyers Guide? Our expert consultants will work with you to make sure you give the customer the information you want without violating FTC rules.
Don’t minimize the importance of the vehicle selection process in your showroom, or the number of shoppers who visit your dealership after hours! Our inventory guides beautifully display your vehicles in a 4- to 8-page brochure. Your Xcite lot representative will update your brochures weekly or bi-weekly and display them in provided indoor and outdoor brochure holders. Each vehicle contains an Xcode allowing shoppers to reconnect easily to the VDP on your website.
From restaurant menus to real estate flyers, QR codes are now commonly accepted as a way for customers to get more information. With QR codes on your Xcite Window Stickers, you fill that need while increasing your conversion rates from traditional ups, whether they visit during operating hours or not. With QR codes that point to the VDP, your prices will always be current and you can avoid embarrassing customer accusations regarding advertising differences.
Eighty-two percent of text messages are read within five minutes, compared to the only 25 percent of emails that are ever opened. XCodes allow your dealership to communicate with shoppers in their preferred manner by automating the information delivery process for your lot visitors. With a quick text message, shoppers can receive a link to the VDP page that provides them with the information they need to make a decision and contact your Sales Department instantly or at a later time. Decrease the sales lost from customers leaving your lot prior to contact with XCodes text messaging.
