AutoRevo Partners With YouTube to Offer Video Integration For Dealer Websites
AutoRevo to Integrate YouTube Video to Enhance Internet Marketing Platform
DALLAS, TX – July 22, 2008
- AutoRevo, the premier provider of auto dealer websites and on-demand software for automotive dealerships marketing and selling cars online, today announced an agreement with YouTube™, a Google subsidiary, to provide complete video integration with their industry-leading online marketing solution and dealer websites.
“Videos have been proven time and again to attract more potential customers to a site and keep them engaged for a longer period of time, which increases the chances that they’ll purchase a vehicle,” said Greg Gifford, Director of Media and Marketing at AutoRevo.
AutoRevo Dealers will now have the ability to upload and manage YouTube videos from inside the AutoRevo application. Videos can then be attached to inventory pages or embedded on custom content pages. Since the videos are hosted at YouTube, which surpassed 100 million monthly online viewers in December of 2008 (comScore, March 4, 2009), dealers can also be found directly on the YouTube site, greatly increasing the chances that the videos will produce more leads and increase vehicle sales. For dealers who are already hosting videos on YouTube, their content will automatically show up in the AutoRevo application, eliminating the need to upload the videos again for integration with their websites.
"AutoRevo is always looking for ways to provide the best website and Internet marketing product to our dealers, which is why we’re excited to offer YouTube integration,” said Chad Polk, President of AutoRevo. “Not only will our dealers have the ability to easily add videos to their inventory pages and make them more engaging, those videos will also be available on the YouTube website, offering enhanced visibility and added value for the dealers.”
YouTube is the world’s most popular online video community allowing millions of people to discover, watch and share originally-created videos. YouTube provides a forum for people to connect, inform and inspire others across the globe and acts as a distribution platform for original content creators and advertisers large and small. YouTube, LLC is based in San Bruno, CA and is a subsidiary of Google Inc.
