How can car dealerships use ‘stories’?

A ‘story’ is essentially a visual social media post that only lasts for 24 hours. This makes it a very fast-paced, fun and continuous feature on social media platforms. They enable humanisation of a brand; providing a face to empathise with in an otherwise faceless business. So how can…

About Autoweb Design

About Autoweb Design

Over a decade ago we had an idea – to create an automotive web design and digital marketing company unrivalled in its customer service.

Coming from a combined background of web design and vehicle transport, we saw a gap in the market for high-quality motor websites and made it our mission to fill this. We initially established a highly-successful used car portal, Autoweb.co.uk, and soon realised that motor traders needed so much more than an attractive website; to be truly successful online, auto dealers needed features such as stock feed and management solutions, online marketing services and finance integration.

The Autoweb Design of today reflects this understanding of the online automotive arena. Offering first-class digital marketing and web design solutions to the automotive industry, we manage the marketing of over 75,000 cars on a daily basis for dealerships, franchises and manufacturers. Implementing the latest industry innovations, we work to take clients’ online presence up a gear with leading-edge services that are specifically engineered to increase web traffic, visibility and online performance.

In line with our original vision for Autoweb Design, our exceptional customer service and professional know-how has proved so popular that most of our business now comes from word of mouth referrals. While we pride ourselves on the advanced level of our technology, we take the time with every client to ensure that they have in place the fundamental components necessary to trading success before we implement our forward-thinking solutions. This approach has truly paid off – our customers trust and value our commitment to their online performance, appreciating that their satisfaction is our focus.

Charity and Community

Charity and Community

Autoweb Design are proud to be regularly involved with charity fundraising. In the past we have run the Race for Life York 10k for various children’s cancer charities, and this year we are focussing on Little Princess Trust.

This amazing charity does incredible work to provide real hair wigs for children who have lost their own hair through cancer treatment or conditions such as alopecia. It is so upsetting for a child to lose their hair, especially when they are so unwell. Little Princess Trust use donated hair and raise the funds necessary to make a wig, giving them away free of charge. The wigs are as close as possible to the child’s natural hair, and hope to give back a little feeling of normality to a world turned upside down.

In June 2015 our Marketing Manager Laura donated 14 inches of hair, raising over £600 along with widespread awareness. The cause was close to Laura’s heart, and though daunted to cut off her luscious locks she did it like a champ.

In August Autoweb Design once again ran the York 10k, this time in aid of Little Princess Trust. The race was a huge success, raising £1,530.00 and promoting the cause to a wider audience. Our fundraising was even featured by AM Online, with an editorial discussing the race. You can read the article here.  

And we aren’t stopping there! We will be continuing to raise money for Little Princess Trust until we reach our target of £5,000, any fundraising suggestions welcome! We’d be so grateful for donations to Little Princess Trust - any contribution will help to make a huge difference to children affected by hair loss. Donating through JustGiving is secure and simple, and the money goes straight to the charity – here’s the link! 

This October the Autoweb Design team will be facing an even bigger challenge – skydiving for Ali’s Angels! Diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour in 2009, Alison Coulthard has since raised over £48,000 for Cancer Research. We are planning to help out with Ali’s Angels’ fantastic work by throwing our staff out of a plane...with a parachute of course!
