RVUSA – Pioneers of Inventory Data Distribution

07rvusalogo

As I was going through the inventory imports and exports we have setup with various other classified websites, dealer management systems, CRMs, etc., I was thinking that we’ve been at this (data distribution) for a long time. So I did some digging through my emails and notes to find out just how long RVUSA.com has been sending dealers inventory over to RVTrader.com every night. I was a little surprised by the answer.

Why RVTrader.com?  Because the inventory feed to RVTrader.com was the first export my team setup, and we were the first company to successfully export inventory data to that classified website.

There were 11 RV Dealers in our first export, which happened 18 years ago this September.

My team has continued to grow the list of websites we can export inventory to over the past 18 years, making our service easy-to-use and a real time-saver for those dealers who list their inventory on not only their own website, but classified websites as well.

I remember well those days of entering the same units manually on multiple websites, and how much time that took to complete. I know we can all agree that NO ONE wants to go back there.

RV Dealers that have an account with RVUSA have access to our data distribution services.  Dealers can mix and match the exports we offer to meet their needs to websites that they have an active account with, including:

  • RVTrader.com
  • RVT.com
  • Jayco.com
  • AirstreamClassifieds.com
  • Auction123.com
  • Oodle.com
  • AutoConX
  • BuyAndSellRV.com
  • CUDL
  • CarBase
  • CarSoup
  • RVs.AutoTrader.com
  • RVRegistry.com
  • RV2Buy.com
  • DealerCMO
  • MotorhomeClassifieds.com
  • RV2Buy.com
  • MyRVLink
  • RacingJunk.com
  • SellRV.com
  • RVUniverse.com

My team was also the first to send an inventory export to Jayco.com, for those dealers who have one of their microsites.

In addtion to exporting inventory data, we like to be as flexible as we can when it comes to importing inventory data.  We have over 70 imports setup currently from other classified websites, dealership management systems, website providers, etc.

Our goal is to make it very easy for our dealers to list inventory on as many websites as they want, including their own, in a timely, efficient manner.  Our Member Management Console is the easiest and most flexible to use in the industry, with tools that include RV model SpecBase data that you can apply to units when entering / editing, a multi-picture uploader, a bulk price updater, inventory ledger creator, automated inventory exports, and much more.

Do you need help listing inventory on your website and/or submitting your inventory to multiple websites automatically?  I’d like the opportunity to discuss your specific needs and show you our MMC.

Managing Your Inventory: It’s easy with our Inventory Distribution Service

I know the most time-consuming part of your day, as the Internet Manager, is posting your inventory on the internet. Most RV Dealers I talk to have their inventory on multiple websites, which is really the best possible scenario, as long as you’re on the major RV classified websites and then also listing your inventory on your website of course.

When I say “major RV classified websites” I mean the three largest in traffic and units:

  • RVTraderOnline.com (Compete Rank: 5,672)
  • RVUSA.com (Compete Rank: 9,006)
  • RVT.com (Compete Rank: 11,602)

Keep in mind, with Compete.com the closer you get to 1 the better, and Google.com holds that position.

The task of listing your inventory on several different websites and then managing all of them from day-to-day could be a full-time job, depending on the size of your dealership. That’s why several years ago we were the first company to send a successful inventory feed to RVTraderOnline.com and have since then added feeds to RVT.com, RVSearch.com, Jayco.com, RV4Sale.com, Oodle.com, Vast.com, Google Base, CarSoup.com, RV2Buy.com, RVRegistry.com, MyRVLink.com, SellingMyRV.com, RVListingsOnline.com, BuyandSellRV.com and most recently Twitter.com.

You must have an active account with the websites you want us to send your inventory to in order to utilize that feed to them.

I know it’s not feasible for you to advertise on all of them and some of you will like one website better than the other, but I just wanted to let you know those feeds are setup and running if/when you need them.

Here’s how you would manage your inventory and an example of how the inventory distribution service works:

This whole process starts with you. You can enter your inventory manually on RVUSA.com or have your inventory automatically sent to us. We accept inventory feeds from RVT.com, RVSearch.com, Channel Blade, MyRVAdvantage, Ultimate Video Showcase, Dealer Peak, PSN, RV Logic, Dealer Specialties, eBiz Auto, Interact RV, MyRVLink, RVData, IDS, Galaxy and direct from dealers. Keep in mind that most, if not all of those providers, do not allow unit videos – and we do. If you want to upload videos, which I would highly recommend, you can do so through our Dealer Management Console.

If you have 10 minutes to talk to me, I would like to help you streamline your inventory entry and distribution processes. Give me a call (866-643-4625 x 120) or send me an email (cindy@rvusa.com).
