How to Get Started in the SUV Dealership Business

SUVs come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Yet all have some common characteristics in common – raised suspension, taller seating position and four-wheel drive capability being among them.

Dealerships frequently try to upsell additional services like paint protection plans and gap insurance, which are extra products and services that most buyers don’t require. And the SUVs need to be great for maintenance purposes.

Getting Started

Establishing a car dealership is an excellent way to earn extra income and break into the automotive business, yet requires plenty of planning and dedication before beginning sales of cars. Before even selling cars for profit can begin you must develop a comprehensive business plan and attend state-mandated certification courses before selling any.

An SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) is a large four-wheeled vehicle capable of being driven both on paved and unpaved roads, boasting higher ground clearance than passenger cars while offering increased cargo space.

As soon as you are ready to sell a vehicle, it is essential that you negotiate with potential customers and gather their details. Next, run credit checks and affordability tests prior to invoicing them. Furthermore, set up a company credit card so you can separate personal from business expenses.

Responding to Reviews

Reviews can be intimidating; whether they’re positive or negative. But you have an opportunity to respond publicly to each review posted to your Business Profile on Google.

Begin your response by thanking the reviewer for sharing their insight, then mention one aspect of their experience that brings you pleasure.

Showing customer care and offering to rectify issues are two effective strategies to increase customer retention and encourage reviewers to give your business another try.

Creating a Page on Angie’s List

Angie’s List makes listing free and simple. Additionally, it is a fantastic way to generate leads for your business and set yourself apart from competitors with its coupon feature.

Angie’s List is a website which connects consumers with local home improvement service providers for paid projects. Established in 1995 and owned by IAC’s publicly-traded subsidiary Angi Home Services Inc, Angie’s List connects consumers directly with providers who specialize in home improvements projects.

Angie’s List is an immense business, yet its competitors pose formidable threats. Consumers consult multiple resources when researching businesses and many are free to use; thus it is imperative that Angie’s List establish multiple marketing channels as single channel strategies are unlikely to prove as successful.

Creating a Page on Bing Places

Though Google remains the dominant force when it comes to local SEO, other search engines such as Bing and Yahoo still play an integral part. Listing your business with Bing Places can increase online visibility while building strong brand recognition.

To create a listing on Bing Places, first verify if your business already exists by searching on their website for it. If it doesn’t, create one by selecting either “Claim Business” or “Create new Business.”

Once your business has an official listing on Bing Business, you can upload professional product images and spotlight team members. Customer reviews sourced from Facebook or Zomato can also be included if necessary. Optimizing and regularly updating Bing Business listings can boost SEO ranking while drawing more customers in.
