How to attract more buyers for your brand new vehicles on Auto Trader

The top performing retailers are optimising these three key parts of their adverts and are sharing thousands of leads every week. Overall, the best quality adverts attract more buyers, generate more leads and ultimately result in more sales.

Imagery and video

We understand it's not always possible to photograph your brand new stock. But if you can, then the effect on your advert performance can be dramatic.

They’re more engaging than configurator imagery and give buyers confidence the vehicle is genuinely in stock.

Pre-haggled prices

Buyers hate haggling and it puts them off buying. To ensure a seamless journey from online to the forecourt, your digital price should be the same as your showroom price. Offering a saving on the MRRP of just £250 could significantly improve the performance of your adverts.

Vehicle descriptions

Adverts with a snappy attention grabber give buyers more reason to click through to your ads.

Don't forget to add a description of the vehicle, which will appear within your advert. This is another opportunity to sell the vehicle and build trust with buyers.
