Craigslist+ integrates a new user user-friendly interface that internalizes the Craigslist functions and ultimately reduces the time necessary to manage your Craigslist advertisements.
Find the vehicle you want to post, hover over the Select an action menu, and select Post to Craigslist. This will open the ad preparation page.
From this page, you can do the following:
- Select your preferred template
- Click the Edit Details link to change the vehicle details
- Modify the Craigslist ad title
- Change the Craigslist market for the post
- Select preferred banner (works only for banner supported templates)
- Select photo count
To begin the actual posting process, Click the Post To Craigslist button.
The first time you post to Craigslist using this system, the application will prompt you for permission to run the java applet. Check the Always trust content and then click Run. By checking the “Always trust” box, it should bypass this prompt in the future and immediately begin the actual posting process.
Once the posting process begins, a yellow progress bar will appear. On the first post you attempt, if will ask you to login with your Craigslist account credentials. Enter that information and click Login.
At the end of this process, you will be prompted to enter in the captcha code to finalize the post.
When the post is complete, you will be returned to the main inventory page and will notice it says “Craigslist Post Successful“.
Motorcycle dealers can now exhale a little as Craigslist has added a Motorcycles/Scooters by Dealer category earlier this week. While the section “Motorcycles” existed before, many dealerships had experienced problems of being flagged by some in the Craigslist community who felt only private sellers should post bikes for sale. The new category allows dealers to list their inventory without this worry.
As a result of this change on Craigslist, potential buyers can now refine their search for motorcycles (or scooters) by clicking tabs at the top of Craigslist. Users can chose to display only motorcycles by private owners, only those for sale by dealers, or both.
LotVantage users also now have the option within the software to post their motorcycles to the new “Motorcycles by Dealer” sub-section.
Ever receive a sales call and wish you had a way of knowing the caller’s ID and where they were calling from? LotVantage now provides an advanced Call Tracking service to help auto, motorcycle and powersports dealers better manage their leads.
Don’t just receive calls – track them!
The LotVantage Call Tracking software provides dealers with a unique toll free phone number that is inserted into each online advertisment. The toll free number allows the phone calls to be tracked and provide the dealership with important details about the lead, such as: the caller’s name, phone number, state and area code they are calling from, and the date and time of the call.
It gets even better – LotVantage Call Tracking for auto dealerships can tell whether or not a call was answered and the duration of the phone call or voicemail message. But what was the conversation about? Is the lead a serious buyer? Never forget the details again! LotVantage Call Tracking records the conversations and voicemails and enables dealers to listen to them – all from within the software!
Every incoming call is tracked as a lead from within LotVantage’s Lead Management System. Access important details like where the lead came from (craigslist, your website, etc.), who the caller was, the salesperson that took the call and the duration of it. Have a third party Customer Relationship Management (CRM)? LotVantage’s Lead Management System with Call Tracking gives you the ability to export your leads to your CRM!
