Thanks for the reply!
Hold that thought... I have a question for you. Does something about being undifferentiated stop your interest in the site? If so, what would you recommend that I do to eliminate your hesitance?
Did you have any other thoughts?
I`ll answer your question to me:
Craigslist (cannot search on make/model, zipcode, price range,etc.) you are limited to day of the week. So, if you want to search on Audi A4 within 200 miles of your zip code, you have to go elsewhere. Also, my theory is that free ad sites have lower quality listings because people will put less time and effort into placing a quality ad.
Cars.com, autotrader.com, realtor.com, etc.
Thier ads run shorter, there is lower limit on how many photos that a person can display. Not to mention they cost much more(an ad on cars.com can run around $60), our highest price ad runs for $19.95 and runs for 180 days. Other classified ads through newspapers and other online sources cost more in general, or they run for a shorter duration.
Ebay is an auction, that can be frightening for some buyers. I haven`t been on ebay motors for some time, and I know they `redid` their pricing across the site. So, I`m not sure if I`m cheaper.
My goal, is to allow sellers to place more information on the site through photos and longer descriptions. It is my opinion that is what differentiates me from the others. Thanks for helping me think that through, I certainly need to include that information on the home page.
