Taking Dealerships on an eBay Test Drive

Liquid Motors demonstrates how to enhance automobile dealerships with eBay at eBay Best Practice Summits
DALLAS – Oct. 10, 2006

eBay is already the place to go for everything from collectibles to antiques, but the eBay Best Practice Summit, which occurred in Dallas, Texas, on Sept. 19, and is scheduled in three additional Texas cities, is out to change that perception. At the event, Mark Burack of Liquid Motors will demonstrate to automobile dealers how to achieve higher online sales rates, better margins and superior profitability using eBay.

“Many dealers, even the larger ones, don’t realize that eBay is a legitimate marketplace for vehicles,” said Michael Daseke, president and CEO for Liquid Motors. “The eBay Best Practice Summit really lets us introduce this concept to the dealers, and the feedback has been tremendously positive. People want to learn how to use eBay to enhance their dealerships; that’s why we’ve had to schedule another Dallas presentation in addition to the Houston, San Antonio and Austin events.”

The presentation covers the major ways that dealers can make eBay work for them. Burack, an eBay Education Specialist and eBay Power Seller, will discuss eBay as a marketplace, how to select the right vehicles to sell online, how to set effective prices, the importance of compelling listings, the effects of efficient listing management and how to sell to the unique eBay users.

Due to the overwhelming positive response to the Dallas event, sponsored by Dependable Auto Shippers (DAS), eBay Motors and ADESA Auto Auctions, Burack has been scheduled to speak at four additional summits, including another Dallas seminar. Burack will appear on Oct. 18 at the Wyndham Greenspoint Hotel in Houston; on Oct. 25 at the Crowne Plaza San Antonio Airport Hotel; on Oct. 26 at the Doubletree Hotel in Austin; and November in Dallas.

The eBay Best Practice Summit includes a Platinum Showcase where dealers will be introduced to tools, software, resources and a live eBay enhancement demonstration.
