Service Level Ad Positioning / RSS Feed Service

About the Service

After 10 years of running our system and helping countless individuals to part with their unwanted vehicles, we have been getting allot of interest from individual dealers across the country wanting to take advantage of our services. Their calls usually go like this,... "Love the site, want to put my cars in there, how do I do it? Well, you click on... But wait, I have 700 cars that need to be updated every single day... And sometimes multiple times per day... It used to be that they would have to enter their listings one by one into the site of their choice. Now, we just reply with "Oh, then you just enroll in our RSS Feed Service!" How much is that? It starts off at $100 per month for everyone with a basic cost of $3.33 per day / month PER location for service level 1."

Once a dealer get's their inventory into the sites and is seeing a response from the site, the next question is normally "How do I get my listings ranked better on the page?" That's a good question. There is a service level that you can choose that will change the order in which all vehicles are sorted on the results pages from that one member account. We have service levels that go from 1-100. The cost is broken down by day and billed monthly for the per day service rates you've chosen or scheduled on a weekly basis. Some members may only need to be at a service level 1 or a 2 or a 3 to be at the top of the search results pages depending on what they are selling. Others may need to go higher. How high you go is entirely up to you.

Instructions

Create an XML file that will be updated daily or hourly or in realtime on your own web server / hosting account. Input the address/URL to allow our system to access that file by entering the URL to the file in your own account page for the RSS address field.

On a nightly basis our servers will automatically connect to that file and input all properly formatted data into our system in your account. As long as your account is current, has no charge backs or a +30 day negative balance, we will set your Ad service level to the number as it is currently selected and add that that day's input and service level fee (if applicable) to your monthly billing history. At the end of the month, we total all amounts from the previous month and charge your account via bank card or credit card on file. If you should change your service levels, your current (approved) billing information is required before your selected service levels above # 1 will take effect.

The bottom line is that people who use our system have benefited from it for 10 years now. Those who don't use it, miss out. To simply have all your inventory searchable for our visitors, you can leave your account at the Level 1 for $100/month. When you're ready to turn up the pressure to get more responses, just turn up your service level on the days you choose.

Just be forewarned! If you turn up your service level, it is YOUR responsibility to turn it back down to a lower level to control your monthly cost or set the weekly automated schedule.

Once your xml data is compiled and set up to update as you maintain your inventory on your website, log into your account via one of our 14 websites, and enter the RSS address into the form on the "My Profile" page found on the "My Site" menu and submit the form. You'll also need to make sure that your billing information is up to date if you are turning up your service levels.

You can have as many pictures as you need with each listing. Just continue the format... Picture id="currentrow" and include all your pictures of that specific vehicle. Please try to keep each listing to around 50 pictures or less. We don't want to over do it with our members. But we do of course want to show all relavent pictures.

You can have as many videos as you need with each listing. Just continue the format... <video id="currentrow"> and include all your videos. Please try to keep each listing to around 10 videos or less. We don't want to over do it with our members. But we do of course want to show all relavent videos. Please don't over do the videos with stock videos that came from the manufacturers. Make a commercial of yourself selling that vehicle and show it running, driving, operating or from the drivers seat! Stock videos just don't sell!

Feed Service Levels

What do the Feed Service Levels Do? They rank or sort all search results for classified listings in our system in descending order from the highest service level to the lowest for any given search performed by a visitor. So in a nutshell, if you enter your listings into our site manually, your service level is a 1 (one). If you have our feed service enter in all your listings into our system at the basic level, your ads are a 0. For around $3.25 per day all your listings were automatically added, updated, or deleted from your account. All without having to have you lift a finger. If you change your daily service level to any number higher than a 1, ALL your ads will carry that same service level and come before any other ads or of those paying for lesser service level for that same service day. If you change your service level to a 100 at 1:00 pm, and back to a 1 before you go home, your billing rate will be for a 1 as the change does not take affect till 12:00am or after. The current service level related to your account will be set on ALL your listings and that current rate will only be entered into the billing history when the feed service pulls your file and updates your inventory with that current rate.

Service Level Rates

The number of days in the month is set to a standard 30 days per month.
