Want to buy the car of your dreams but you have limited options? Want to sell your car but your buyers are limited? Need that extra push with regards to expanding your exposure and marketing your automobile? Well Carmudi made all those fears and hesitations all go away because it addressed your dealer and buyer dilemmas by relaunching their website last week.
I was fortunate to be amongst the few bloggers to be invited to this momentous event. The food was sumptuous, the place was very classy and sleek in presentation and the girls were very well dressed and were definite head turners during the course of the night. Also lucky winners got the elusive chance to drive a Ford car to any destination for the whole weekend! How awesome is that? 🙂 They also doled out various loot bags which contained a very comfortable neck pillow which I immediately used to cushion my neck while driving along the congested lanes of Edsa. To give you a brief backgrounder on Carmudi here’s a little inside scoop.
“Leading car classified Carmudi to revolutionize car selling in the Philippines”
24th November 2014, Berlin, Germany – Selling your car just got a lot simpler: Two simple steps and you can have your car up for sale in less than 2 minutes. Yes that’s right! Carmudi, the most convenient way to buy or sell vehicles online, is bringing the car selling experience to a whole new different level in emerging markets.
With its super easy-to-use features, you can reach millions of interested buyers in a few seconds without going through the hassle of putting adverts in papers or spreading the word among friends. All you need to do is go to the site, click on the link that says ‘sell your car now’, upload your car details, images and contact information and voila, your car is ready for sale. What makes it even better is that for individual sellers, this service is absolutely free.
So no more waiting for months to get the right kind of buyer or visiting a plethora of car dealers to get your resale’s worth. But what if you have slow internet connection? “Worry not! The website has been designed in a way that even in countries where internet speed is slow, you can prepare your car for sale in less than 2 minutes as only the relevant information desired by the user gets loaded. This will make the user experience extremely smooth and convenient in all the 20 countries we operate in,” commented Stefan Haubold, Global Managing Director of Carmudi.
Besides offering a speedy selling process, the platform also serves as a 24/7 salesman making sure that the communication between buyers and sellers remains consistent. In fact, sellers get prompt notifications/ alerts not only via email but also via SMS about potential customers, who express an interest in their offerings. This way, sellers can get in touch with buyers immediately and make an active sale. “It really is a breeze, and in our case, it was very fast. We posted our Ford Ranger on Carmudi, and in less than a week we had a buyer,” says C! Magazine’s very own Maynard Marcelo.
The high security standard and transparency level that dealers/individual sellers tend to enjoy through Carmudi allows them to secure a trusted stamp among buyers. The professional photos, the updated listings, the detailed descriptions, reports and rankings of all the listed vehicles make the selling/buying experience absolutely stress-free. In fact, often the cars listed on the site are shared with Carmudi’s social media platform followers (approx.1 million) that makes the selling process much faster.
With this relaunch of the website, Carmudi is all set to take the Philippine market by storm, which shows very ideal conditions for car classifieds. The Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc (CAMPI) predicts that the car industry will easily sustain its double-digit growth in 2015, and is hopeful it will hit the 300,000-unit sales mark in 2015. Through the relaunch of the Carmudi website, Carmudi will be able to strongly support these sales predictions.
Carmudi.com.ph officially launched its new website last November 25, 2014 at R Space Events Place in Makati. Industry partners Smart and C! Magazine were in attendance, as well as the top car dealers in Metro Manila, in support of Carmudi.
Two lucky guests went home with the privilege to take a new Ford Fiesta out for an adventure, courtesy of Ford Global City. The Ford Fiesta is considered an urban dynamic, the contours and curves of which create natural aerodynamics for maximum performance and fuel efficiency. Food Panda also gave out prizes throughout the event.
