Why do we use templates?

Anyone who has had a bespoke website built knows that its not cheap,  not only do you have to pay for the hours to custom build the site. After this, it has to be examined and refined for SEO and mobile use . Your CM site uses a template that allows us to build a site that is already mobile ready and SEO optimised. The template allows us to promote your brand using your colour scheme and logo branding.

Who owns the website?

Simple answer… you do! Each site we build clearly says is it owned and copyrighted by yourself- and is simply powered by Commercial Motor. All rights to images/logos content stays with you

Where are all the fancy features to grab users’ attention? 

Your CM site deliberately puts your stock up front, Our research has shown that buyers already know what they want when looking at a website, they don’t browse and buy on impulse. Further we hear that if  they cant find what they want quickly they move on.  So we put your stock up front, and each item of stock has various routes to other similar stock to keep the buyer on your website and interested. Each site we build has a visitor flow plan based around your most common stock.

I am not keen on your CM site templates

We can offer  you the opportunity to have your own WordPress site built , that can still take your stock via CM . You can either hire a designer to do this for you, or we can facilitate  it – all the design costs would be billable to yourself and hosting fees would be negotiated by your CM sales representative. There would be a charge for setting up the CM implementation for feeding your stock and for time spent with your designer ensuring his design means  we can implement the CM  upload of your stock.

I want to show my stock on social media

Good news.. we can feed to Facebook , Twitter and Linked In  automatically from your CM site- you don’t have to do anything after you have uploaded your stock to CM, our systems do it automatically.

I use other sales sites can you feed to them?

COMING SOON – We have in active development the ability to feed  directly from your CM site to other sales sites as you can imagine getting different systems to talk to each other can get complicated, but our plan is to implement these one by one  at no extra cost to our clients- giving you the “one upload to all” opportunity, in the mean time our CM sites are able to be scraped to give you continuity. 

I want a little change made to my CM website- what is it going to cost?

Every  your CM website comes with one hour free support each month, so changing an
e-mail address or logo is included in your package. Larger changes such as redesign are billable. Please inquire for a full breakdown of the costs. 

I also sell other things alongside used vehicles, why cant I use my CM website to sell them?

We at Commercial Motor know our industry, we know the buyers and sellers. We focus on that one particular arena to provide the best selling experience for truck dealers and their clients. Opening up the websites to areas out of our expertise devalues our, and your core business- Amazon can sell Santa hats far better than us – we can sell your trucks far better than them. We stick with what we are good at !
