What is the Motor Vehicle Dealers Network? (mvdn.com)

The MVDN is an on-line network of vehicle dealers and related services. It contains everything from new and used auto dealership sites to motorcycle, boat, R.V., classic and heavy equipment dealers. Also, parts recyclers, auction houses, parts retailers and other services. Within the pages of the MVDN individuals and dealers will be able to interact in the new, ever expanding virtual marketplace.

How does the MVDN work?

Anytime someone searches for "cars" or other related products on the Internet, the MVDN will appear under their list of matching subjects. The person will then call up the MVDN and be able to search through it's database for the type of vehicle they are looking for. The customer can search according to the location, model, make, age or price range of the car they wish to buy. Any vehicles and dealerships that match the customers search specifications will be pulled up onto a list which the customer can then go through. For example, a customer will be able to type in that they are looking for a 1992 or newer Ford Ranger for under $10,000 and all the Rangers listed that match those specifications will come up.

Why should I join the MVDN?

The Internet is gaining in popularity everyday. There are currently an estimated 25 to 30 million people surfing the "Net". The average dealership is not equipped to reach people on-line. The costs associated with designing, building and marketing your own private site are prohibitive to starting your own dealership homepage. While other dealers may have their own web sites, your dealership will have the advantage of keeping on-line advertising costs low and being a part of the large, user-friendly Motor Vehicle Dealers Network. The MVDN's large grouping of related auto sites, will attract the attention of more potential buyers, offer you more services and give your site the exposure it needs to be effective. The MVDN provides your dealership with high quality, high tech interactive advertising at a price more reasonable than most print media.

According to Internet World magazine " A web site is not a simple add on to your business, but a mirror of your business in cyberspace." (Feb. 1996)

What makes the MVDN different from other sites or dealer homepages?

The MVDN is superior to other sites and homepages in many ways.

  1. The MVDN has a specially designed searchable database that allows you and your customers to easily sort through a large quantity of information to find exactly what you are looking for. This benefits both your on-line customers and your regular customers. If you don't have the car someone wants on your own lot, you can find it on-line. This ability to respond quickly to customer needs will give your dealership an edge over those who are not on the MVDN.
  2. The large size and unique features of the MVDN attracts more "surfers" than a lone dealership homepage. The MVDN is 'one stop shopping' for someone looking for a vehicle because all dealers and all types of vehicles are listed in one location.
  3. The MVDN offers free vehicle listings for private individuals. This service will help to attract customers as well as allow dealers to search the private market for new inventory.
  4. The MVDN is maintained on a regular basis so that information stays current. At the MVDN keeping your site up to date and useful is our number one priority.
  5. The MVDN is a Canadian site, with prices in Canadian dollars that serves Canadian and International car buyers. There are many auto sites on the Internet but, none are looking after the interests of international buyers and sellers like the Motor Vehicle Dealers Network.
  6. The MVDN will continue to grow and expand as the interest in the Internet does, giving your dealership a dynamic location on-line.
  7. The MVDN contains a special "Dealers Only" password protected section where dealers can interact with other dealers. This section will contain information that will help your dealership run smoothly, such as; auction knockdown sheets, a list of all the sale days, auto association news, a searchable wholesale section and a dealer to dealer bulletin board where you can post messages for other dealers.
