You're not in the car business; you are in the people business, so how are you currently connecting with customers? If you're simply relying on your dealership website, take a close look and ask yourself how the dealer site is helping build relationships between you and your customers.

CSW does not just give you a personal website for car sales; we provide the tools needed to succeed. Tools to capture and keep your own leads instead of losing them to coworkers. If you use the tools we provide, you will sell more cars, it's that simple.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
Our sites are optimized for major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing. While we cannot promise a particular placement, this allows you the best opportunity at being included in the top of relevant search results. Metas are placed on each vehicle so that when a car shopper is "Googling" a year, make and mode, and you have that vehicle in stock, your website appears in their search.
It is ALL about generating leads. CSW knows how to help you get them!
Lead Generating Forms
CSW provides MANY lead forms to help you gain more customers. Leads are sent directly to your inbox, so you know that lead is yours and only yours.

Branded inventory always leads back to you
We make sure that everyone knows who you are once they visit your website. After all, your name is your brand. We put your name out front and center!
Inventory can be pulled from your main dealership to your site so vehicles and pricing are always up-to-date. Spend your time selling cars, not listing them. You do however have the ability to use our inventory app to add vehicles and photos.
We take your vehicles from your website and distribute them to third party classified sites under your own name to get you more buyers.
It's easy for you to manage inventory through your admin panel. Update your inventory in real time. Set featured vehicles for maximum visibility to move aged units.
Brand your vehicles with custom overlay images to help build your brand more efficiently. Your own contact info and marketing message on every vehicle image.
Utilizing Social Media? You should be, and we can integrate that too!
After all that time you put into Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and others, it is important to get a return on that work.
Links to Profiles
Link to all of your social media profiles directly from the homepage of your website. Branded icons for each site appear instantly when adding your profile links.
Visitors can follow you on Facebook or watch your YouTube videos without even leaving your website. Keep them engaged and keep them on your site for a winning strategy.
Set up automatic posting of vehicle inventory as well as customer testimonials. Show your social media followers your great vehicles and happy customers. Generate traffic to your own site from social profiles, and get referrals without even having to ask for them!
Any customer can share any page of your site with one click. “Hot” vehicle on the lot? Customer sharing that vehicle on their own social media brings more customers to your site.
While some automated content is available, you May also add your own content through the CMS. Whether adding a new page or editing an existing page, add or edit content on the fly with just a few key strokes. Edit text, add photos, and even create custom Meta data info for SEO. Perfect for those who want to be in control, and equally as easy to use for those who are not website experts!
Create your own pages within the CMS to showcase anything and everything that helps you sell more cars. The most common pages are already there for you to use, like contact pages, directions, vehicles, and reviews, and you can create custom pages for virtually any purpose you can imagine.
Less Time Writing
Take advantage of pre-written content to get up and running quickly. Simply adding a link to a Facebook profile or YouTube video on your homepage instantly creates sections for each, with your page and/or video embedded automatically to give the feeling of a content-rich site for your visitors. Use stock slideshow images and featurettes, edit them to suit your own needs, or easily create new ones in seconds.
More Time Selling
Once your website is up and you have tailored content to your needs through the Content Management System, your site can run on autopilot with minimal need for updates through the CMS, allowing you to spend your valuable time selling cars instead of writing.
Create video gallery pages with multiple videos embedded on the same page. Clients can watch any or all of your videos without ever leaving your site, which adds even more value for those customers. Showcase how-to videos for your customers and help them with common questions like how to connect their phone to the vehicle Bluetooth receiver. Quality, useful content gives your customers reason to check your site often and provides them value in buying from you.
Personalized Customer Videos
Video gallery pages can also be used to showcase past clients. Imagine a new car shopper visiting your site for the first time and seeing 50 videos of past clients saying how great their experience was with you as their salesperson. A powerful sales tool indeed.
Event Photo Pages
Personal car salesman websites are meant to help you connect with your prospects and customers on a personal level. Car shoppers like to know the person guiding them through their substantial investment is a real person. Photo albums aren't just for family, they're great to show off your latest dealership event and generate a buzz.
Connect on a Personal Level
Photo gallery pages can be created as albums to show your clients that you care about your community and are a real person just like them. Show off your fundraising efforts for a local charity or your volunteer coaching photos from your kid's sports team. Show photos of your family so clients can see you're a real person just like them. People buy from people they connect with, and photo galleries help foster that connection.
Show potential customers how happy your past customers are with online reviews. Display those positive comments and sell more cars!

When people talk about their first-hand experience with you, their friends and family listen, and that means increased customer referrals.
Clients submit reviews which can then be published on your site. Solicit feedback and ratings, and then share each one on your social media for maximum exposure.
Dealer Rater® Integration
Link to your Dealer Rater profile directly from your homepage. Show clients you're a credible, professional salesperson with positive reviews from trusted 3rd party sites.
How Our Websites Help You Succeed
How we help:
1. All leads will be routed directly to you - They do not go to the internet manager who distributes leads to all sales reps at your store.
2. The domain you choose is yours to keep - We will register, host and monitor it for you as long as you are a client of Higher Turnover. Your domain name will travel with you, whether you simply move to another dealership, or terminate services within the terms and agreement you sign with Higher Turnover.
3. Your website is portable - It will travel with you if you ever decide to go to a different dealership. This means your address book will travel with you, too. You are not just leaving all those leads in the hands of your former employer - if you begin working for a different dealership, your website can be re-branded, and you do not have to start from scratch to build your client base. If you generate leads while working at one dealership, those leads stay with you, even if you move on in your career. Those leads are yours, forever.
4. Inventory distribution to 3rd party classified sites - We can send all vehicles on your site to dozens of free classified websites such as Oodle.com and Web2carz.com and more. This can get you the same level of exposure on those sites as the dealership would get, and ultimately drive car shoppers back to your own site.
5. Search Engine Optimization (SEO) - All our sites are optimized for the major search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing. While we cannot promise any particular placement in the search results, we can say that our sites are set up properly to give you the best opportunity of being included at the top of relevant search results.
6. Your website from Car Salesman Websites enables you to brand yourself, not the dealership. People want to buy from salespeople they can trust. Building that trust and showing your potential clients that you are a down-to-earth professional who will go the extra mile for them will undoubtedly instill that trust in them, and ultimately improve your closing ratio.
7. We give you access to monitoring analytics - Do you want to know where traffic to your website is coming from? What time of day do you get the most views? What pages are being viewed the most? We connect you to analytics that will give you a broad picture behind the scenes. What the information means can be complicated, but it can give you an overview of what visitors are doing.
8. Your website will work exactly as we say it will - We provide the venue for you to promote yourself, list your inventory, capture leads and connect to social websites.
9. Access To a Craigslist Posting Tool- Post specific or all vehicles to craigslist in a click of a button. It is simply that easy!
10. Add Videos to your website- Create and add videos to your vehicles, reviews page, or any other page.
We are NOT:
1. A "miracle cure" for sales that requires no effort on your part - Like any sales career, auto sales take hard work to be at the top, and there are no shortcuts. Our services just happen to be a "secret weapon" that many do not think of using, but one that can make a huge difference in your commission checks.
2. A lead provider - We provide the tools to market yourself and capture your own leads, but we do not actively send customers to you. Customers come from self-promotion and inventory distribution to classified sites.
3. A full-service marketing platform - We provide you with the tools to succeed, and your level of success depends heavily on how you use those tools. We will help you, but using one of our salesperson websites means you must actively market the site on your own in addition to the efforts we put forth. Do not expect to have a site built and instantly find yourself at the top of Google searches, because that is not how it works. Salesperson websites take time and effort to become established.
4. A custom-design web development company - We use a template-based business model to keep our prices affordable for our clients. Our designs can be lightly customized, and many things on the site can be configured differently, but we are not a company that offers completely custom graphic design from the ground up. We can do some minor customization, but it may come with an additional fee. If you have questions about whether we can accommodate specific design aspects, please contact us.
5. A substitute for social media - We give you the tools to integrate your social media platforms on your website, and we are happy to direct you to free programs that can help you to auto-post vehicles to your social media accounts, but we do not create or monitor social media for you. We do highly recommend you use social media as an added tool for self-promotion to get the word out, though. Social media is by far one of the most heavily used ways of networking and it can hurt you not to be involved.
6. A surefire way to reach the front page of Search Engines - Whether you are an individual salesperson, a large dealership, or even a huge global company, "the internet" sees you as just another website. That is just reality in today's world where there are trillions of web pages out there. In order to get people to visit your site, you need to spread the word. This can be through social media like Facebook, it can be through handing out business cards with your personal website on them, it can be through meeting people at your kid's little league game, or any other traditional marketing. The success of your website depends directly on how much self-promotion you do. In our opinion, the most important factors for your website are usability, inventory distribution, and SEO. What we do works, plain and simple. We can help you bring your sales to the next level.
Package Pricing and Payment Options
We understand that most prefer to keep things simple. Each package consists of a one-time set-up fee and a monthly fee, and there are no hidden fees or commitment required. The monthly fees begin on the day your site goes live and are charged until you decide to cancel services, which can be done at any time with 30 days’ notice in writing. Again, there is no long-term commitment required - all packages are available month to month. You're able to see what's included in each package by visiting https://www.carsalesmanwebsites.com/pricing.
**Keep in mind this is a template platform. You have control over some customization of pages, navigation, font colors, background, images, and color schemes.
You don't have to be GREAT to start, but you Have to START to be GREAT!
