NORFOLK, Va., Feb. 5, 2013 — Dominion Dealer Solutions has partnered with Carfax to provide more detailed information about used cars in its Real Vehicle Video solution. Carfax-subscribing dealers now can include Carfax information within the online video ads. This enhancement helps engage more potential buyers and gives them valuable information they need to buy with confidence.
‘Adding vehicle-specific information from Carfax to the end of Real Vehicle Videos helps turn viewers into buyers,’ said Glen Garvin, vice president of Dominion Dealer Solutions. ‘People trust Carfax to help alleviate their concerns and buy with greater confidence. Videos are so much more valuable when sellers provide useful information that appeals to potential buyers.’
According to Internet Retailer, 52% of consumers say watching product videos gave them more confidence in their purchase decision. Dominion’s new, industry-first Real Vehicle Video combines advanced video technology with Dominion-exclusive video content, customized tagging, keywords and descriptions. Additionally, including Carfax information upfront to customers through the video shows a commitment to transparency and helps dealers stand out from their competition.
‘Carfax information is one of the key things online shoppers look for in a vehicle listing,’ said Larry Gamache, communications director at Carfax. ‘Online videos offer a unique platform for dealers to showcase the merits of a vehicle’s past. The enhanced Real Vehicle Video helps meet the needs of dealers and the expectations of the online shopper.’
