January 24, 2012

San Clemente, CA | January 24, 2012 -

Award-winning auto dealer CRM solution, DealerSocket (DealerSocket.com), announces the availability of MarketPlace Social, one of eight tools under the DealerSocket MarketPlace umbrella. MarketPlace Social features customizable options and allows dealers to proactively solicit positive ratings for social media rating sites, such as Yelp, Google and DealerRater. MarketPlace Social automatically sends a thank you email with a survey link to sold or service customers. Customers who respond positively receive an email with links to online reputation sites of the dealer's choice requesting the customer to post a review. If a customer responds negatively to the survey, the dealer is immediately notified. MarketPlace Social can be used with DealerSocket CRM or as a stand-alone addition to a pre-existing CRM.

"Knowing who your happy customers are and partnering with them to improve your rankings on top social media rating sites is a crucial component to social media success," says Jonathan Ord, DealerSocket Co-Founder and CEO. "With MarketPlace Social, dealers immediately know who is happy and, in the case of an unhappy customer, allows the dealer to proactively turn that customer into a raving fan. Our dealer customers often request ways to tie CRM into their social media efforts. With MarketPlace Social, they can do it quickly, efficiently and automatically." About DealerSocket
