Sarasota. FLA – Dealers United, the first service to truly leverage the buying power of privately-owned dealerships, today announced member growth in their first 90 days of business has outpaced all expectations. Dealers United now represents more rooftops than any MegaDealer Group, including AutoNation.
The member-based service, launched in October of this year, acts as the business development arm for private dealerships by researching vendors and offering their services to members at a substantial discount. This in turn gives vendors with superior product offerings the ability to market to a highly-targeted group. Acting as the dealer community’s liaison, Dealers United will conduct a deep analysis of each vendor to determine what makes them better than their competitors, and introduce these hand-selected providers and their offerings to members each month. Members can choose to purchase the vendor service or product at a substantial discount or pass on any deal generated by Dealers United.
“The rate of member growth we’ve seen in our first couple of months of business proves how badly private and family-owned dealerships need a service like Dealers United,” said Jesse Biter, co-Founder of Dealers United. “MegaDealers are outpacing privately-owned dealerships at a staggering rate. We’re here to stem the tide and help independent dealers get back to business.”
“I think one of the most compelling aspects of Dealers United is that it is truly directed by dealerships,” said Matt Buchanan, co-founder of Dealers United and Dealer Principal of Sarasota Ford. “Our members vote on which areas they want us to research, whether it be social media, web design, etc. and they have the opportunity to take part in the deal. It’s completely dealer-driven, which is one of the reasons we’ve seen such amazing growth.”
