Craigslist Enhancement – Customize Your Posting Layout

We have added the ability to set the order content will display within your Craigslist postings. Choose what content will be included and the order it will display in your ads by default across all listings.

To modify the order of your Craigslist posting:

  • Login to the Auction123 Dashboard
  • Within the left-hand navigation menu, locate the Preferences menu and click on Feeds
  • Click on the Craigslist tab
  • Locate the Configure Ad Options section.

From here, you can choose which widgets are included within your Craigslist postings by dragging each to the window on the right labeled “Template”. Any widgets that remain in the window on the left will not be included in your Craigslist postings.

Within the “Template” window on the right, set the order you want the content displayed by dragging the widgets up and down to reorder. If you have selected “Vehicle Data & Options” to display within your template, choose within the Additional Options section below if you want the full bulleted list of specifications or just the 8 Showroom Summary Bullets to be displayed within your postings.

Once you have everything set, click Save at the bottom of the page. Your changes will be reflected for any new postings going forward.

Please let us know if you have any questions!

Auction123 Named Platinum Award Winner for Best Online Inventory Marketing Tools in the 2014 Dealers’ Choice Awards

A very BIG ‘Thank You’ to all who nominated and voted for Auction123 as your favorite Online Inventory Marketing Tool provider! We are honored to be named as the recipient of the Platinum Award and look forward to continuing to provide our dealers with the best inventory marketing tools available!


NEWS RELEASE

Auction123, the leading provider of inventory marketing solutions for dealerships of all vehicle categories, is honored to be the recipient of the Platinum Award for Best Online Inventory Marketing Tools in Auto Dealer Monthly’s 2014 Dealers’ Choice Awards. This marks the fifth year Auction123 has been recognized in these awards.

Hundreds of dealers voted in the 10th annual Dealers’ Choice Awards, which recognize the most highly-regarded vendors, suppliers, and finance companies in the retail automotive industry. Voters were able to list their favorite vendors in a total of 27 categories and score each vendor based on the product or service itself, customer support and service, value, and whether they would recommend the company to another dealer. “Each year, the high standards of dealers are reflected in the results of the Dealers’ Choice Awards voting, and this year is no exception,” said David Gesualdo, publisher of Auto Dealer Monthly and F&I and Showroom. “The winners have set a high standard for themselves and for the industry as a whole.”

“We are driven to develop innovative products and services that remedy the challenges dealers face on a day-to-day basis when marketing their inventory to the top online marketplaces”, said Ray Basha, C.E.O of Auction123, Inc. “Being consistently recognized by dealers for our Online Inventory Marketing tools in the annual Dealers’ Choice Awards is a huge honor. We are excited about our latest enhancements to our eBay and Craigslist tools and look forward to supporting our dealers with the unparalleled service they expect from everyone here at Auction123.”

In 2014, Auction123 greatly enhanced their suite of inventory marketing tools by creating fully automated listing processes for both eBay and Craigslist. These new features provide dealers with a hands-free solution for launching and managing their vehicle listings on these high traffic sites. Unlike other automated solutions, the Auction123 tool offers dealers with full control over which inventory should go live and the days and times the ads should be listed. Dealers seeking more control over the posting process have the option of manually scheduling their vehicles to go live on the day, time, and marketplace they choose.

Recently, Auction123’s Craigslist application was highlighted as a Powersports’ Business Nifty 50 – Top Products and Services of 2014. Auction123 was also honored to be voted as the highest rated Inventory Management Provider in the 2014 Dealer Marketing Magazine Technology Leadership Awards.

New Features! Craigslist Scheduling and Automated Craigslist Posting Process

Since Craigslist converted to $5 per posting in the Cars & Trucks by Dealer category, we’ve been hard at work to create the best possible Craigslist integration available to automotive dealers! As a result, our dealers have been reporting phenomenal traffic and sales statistics resulting from their Craigslist posting initiatives. Our new automated Craigslist posting process and our post scheduling tools are not just for dealers posting to the Cars & Trucks by Dealer category. RV, Commercial Truck, Motorcycle, Powersports, Boat, Campers, Heavy Equipment, and Trailer dealers can all benefit from our new streamlined process to easily and effortlessly launch your inventory to the #1 online Classified site.

For dealers interested in a hands-free process, we offer a new, fully automated listing method designed to provide your dealership with the best possible exposure. Once setup, the process will list the units you want, when you want, leaving you and your team more time to work with the leads that you receive from your high quality Craigslist postings. First, determine the number of postings that you want to go live each month. A series of filters and settings will then determine which units should be eligible to be posted and the order in which they are posted. Let us know the days you want the postings to go live and your preferred time range for optimal exposure. Your selected vehicles will then be launched from your Auction123 account to your Craigslist account directly from your PC. Let us know if we should automatically revise your postings or if you would like us to remove as the units are marked sold in your Auction123 account.

If you are seeking an option that allows you more control, choosing the day and time you want each unit to go live, we now offer a Craigslist posting scheduler. Simply choose the unit, set the posting schedule, and your listing will be pushed live from your PC at the selected time.

These options are currently available for any free posting category and to dealers who have pre-purchased bulk postings from Craigslist. We will be rolling out integration for dealers who pay-per-posting very soon!

Call us today to get setup on the new application: (888) 514-0123, Option 2
