A leading provider of dealer communication solutions, Gubagoo Inc. has recently announced that dealerships in both Canada and the United Kingdom now have access to Gubagoo to sell their pre-owned vehicles on Facebook Marketplace.
With this new solution, Gubagoo can list dealerships' vehicle inventory on Marketplace and integrate with Messenger to manage interactions with interested buyers. Previously, Gubagoo announced Facebook Marketplace support for US dealerships, which has since realized significant dealer adoption.
"We were impressed by how quickly Gubagoo got us up and running on Facebook Marketplace," said Todd Chaney, Sales Manager, Mann Chrysler Dodge Jeep of Richmond. "In the first three months of posting our inventory on Marketplace, we received more than 313 new leads."
"Our dealership received around 300 new leads within the first three months of posting our inventory on Marketplace," said Jamie Suid, Marketing Director of Florida Fine Cars. "The amount of traffic is one thing, but the seamlessness of the setup and handling of the conversations is what really separates the Gubagoo Facebook Marketplace solution from the pack."
Getting started on Marketplace is easy. Dealers who are using Gubagoo ChatSmart simply authorize Gubagoo to post to Marketplace. Within minutes, the dealership's used car inventory is imported. Each vehicle will appear in a separate listing, and include a photo of the vehicle, a description, year, make, model, price, mileage, VIN number, and the dealership's name and location. In the United Kingdom, Gubagoo's exclusive reseller partner GForces will post inventory on the dealer's behalf.
Dealers with Gubagoo's Facebook Messenger integration enabled will benefit from having Gubagoo's professional team of chat specialists respond to incoming queries from buyers interested in learning more about vehicles posted on Marketplace. All incoming leads will be qualified by Gubagoo's chat specialists and uploaded to the dealer's CRM.
"We have seen tremendous dealer interest in our Facebook Marketplace offering. It has really been a game-changer for our business," said Brad Title, CEO of Gubagoo. "We are looking forward to driving even more interest with dealers in Canada and the UK."
The Gubagoo's Facebook Marketplace is currently available only for US, Canadian, and UK dealerships that use ChatSmart solution and Messenger add-on. There are no additional fees made by Facebook on Marketplace, though there may be costs associated with setting up feeds through a third-party listing partner or live chat provider. There is no maximum number of listings to make or post.
