And I can’t tell you how much that’s worth.”

Chris Slaydon, Director of eBusiness for Vernon Auto Group, stated on the ebay blog, “ebay is the place shoppers go at some point in their journey to explore the market, especially when it comes to vehicle purchase. So just listing on ebay gives us outstanding visibility in the general search space. Our advice to other dealers is: don’t get wrapped up in the mindset of ‘ebay is only worthwhile for direct ROI.’ No way. Connect the dots to get the bigger picture, and you’ll see how valuable listing on ebay is to your overall Internet sales, because of the exposure you get on search engines like Google.”
