Thank you all for participating in the poll on Marketplace title format! There’s great desire for more structure, yet we do agree with some of the concerns voiced. So instead of standardizing Marketplace titles, we looked first to leverage our existing tagging system and search functionality to make Marketplace more navigable. In the coming few days, we are launching a quick search tool (Find A Deal) for Marketplace deals and adding tags for price range. This is what it will look like:
We are breaking the price range into the following tiers: #0-199, #200s, #300s, #400-600, #600-plus, and #any. @brokers and @dealers, feel free to update your posts with the applicable price range tag(s) now before we launch the Find A Deal tool.
The best practice for advertising monthly payment in this community is to calculate based on “no down payment, only drive-off fees due at signing.” Regarding what incentives to apply – know your audience and use your best judgment.
Business Directory – Find A Seller Search Tool
We are also making an effort to make businesses easier to search. Users can now quickly connect to the right seller based on their region and preferred brand. Note that this Find A Seller tool searches based on your review page tags – so if you want to be more visible, we encourage you to update your tags and create a review page if you haven’t done so.
Here’s a link to the Guidelines for Review Pages, which includes the tags every review page must include.
We hope you will find these improvements helpful.
Victoria and Michael
