Dealer.com Announces EasyLaunch for Flawless Transition to New Websites

Burlington, VT –  Dealer.com, the leading provider of online marketing solutions for the automotive industry, recently announced EasyLaunchSM, a dedicated world class process for automotive dealers that speeds the transition from an old website to a new one. EasyLaunch virtually eliminates concerns associated with switching vendors such as site down time, technical problems, or lost website traffic and leads.

“Our process has been perfected over the last ten years during which we’ve launched more than 5,000 websites,” said Rick Gibbs, chief technology officer for Dealer.com.

“We were very nervous about flipping the switch because I had heard stories from other people about how their site had been down for days or had technical problems,” said Gregg Berkowitz, Internet director for Park Avenue Auto Group in New Jersey (www.parkavebmw.com) “But Dealer.com handled the transition really well; in fact it was pretty much flawless.”

Each Dealer.com customer is assigned an EasyLaunch team that includes the Regional Sales Director, Project Manager, dedicated Account Manager and Creative Designer (if the customer chooses additional custom design work). The team conducts an in-depth dealer prep and launch survey that outlines the dealer’s current needs, then creates a process map that details instructions to achieve a fast and effortless new site launch.

The EasyLaunch process also provides dealers with the following benefits:

  • Expert SEO Team. Dealer.com’s SEO consultants work with the site designer to keep current organic traffic levels consistent and growing after a new site launch.
  • World Class Training.  Online video training and weekly live training classes allow dealership employees to login whenever it’s convenient for them, increasing overall participation and performance during the transition.
  • Power To The Dealer newsletter and Driving Sales (www.drivingsales.com) online network. All Dealer.com customers have access to these valuable informational sources for continued learning and development.
