CAR-buying platform Carwow is keen to let dealers know how it operates and what it offers – and it’s looking forward to taking part in CDX16 to do exactly that.
Launched in 2013, the London-based firm – winner of a Car Dealer Power Award last year – is aiming to transform the new car market by moving the sales process from the showroom to the web.
CDX16 will be held on Tuesday, May 24 at Silverstone in Northamptonshire and, after witnessing how impressive last year’s event was, Carwow has decided to get involved in 2016.
The company told us: ‘Having won the 2015 Car Dealer Power Award for Consumer Lead Generation Website of the Year, we know lots of dealers out there love us.
‘However, there are lots of misconceptions about Carwow, so we want to get in front of dealers and explain what we actually do – when we speak to dealers face-to-face and show how it’s not price-focused, they end up loving what we do.
‘We also want to catch up with dealers who already use us and share tips on how to get even more out of Carwow.’
The firm added: ‘Our sales director John Miele attended as a visitor last year and thought it was an impressive exhibition with a strong franchise dealer attendance, from both large and small groups. We can’t wait to be involved in 2016. This year, we’re hoping to better educate the industry about what we actually do.
‘Only 25 per cent of Carwow customers buy from the cheapest dealer – the majority choose where to buy from based on reviews from other customers and dealer location. Dealerships providing excellent customer service can sell hundreds of additional cars annually through Carwow and we want to tell people this.’
