A Tool To Drive Sales Before Your Customer Walks Through The Door

A Tool To Drive Sales Before Your Customer Walks Through The Door

For a usual sale, the customer shops for their prospective vehicle before even thinking about a financing application. The issue here is that the unit they’ve chosen (which you’ve spent valuable time selling them on) isn’t a sure thing until that financing application is approved. 

So, how can you bring in more leads that are a sure thing? If you want to get started on financing a deal before you even start selling, you can use Octane Lending‘s free personal financing link to add a credit application to your website.

The Info on this Simple Tool

If you have an active account with Octane Lending, you already have access to this tool! When clicked, your dealership link will bring a customer to a new loan application. Your finance link is unique to you- any application filled out in the link will go directly to your Octane Lending account.

A NEW CREDIT APPLICATION ON OCTANE LENDING FOR A DEALERSHIP CALLED POWERSPORTS OF PALM BEACH

Take a look at this example application for a dealership called Powersports of Palm Beach. This is what your customer will see (with your dealership name, of course) when they click into your financing link. They can pick a vehicle, fill out their info, and apply for financing before they even walk in your door- and the lead is placed into your Octane Lending Portal.

On your end, this application will show up in your Octane Lending account (just like you filled it out in-store) and you can choose the lender for the application. The financing link gives you the ability to generate new leads, appeal to online shoppers, and close more deals without customers waiting around in your dealership.

What Can The Link Be Used For?

Your dealership financing link can be used in anything that can include a hyperlink. Here are some ways to use your link to its fullest potential.

3. Easy To use

Once copied, you can put this link anywhere that allows a hyperlink.

Tip: We also think creating a designated financing page on your website is a great idea. It helps build trust with your customers and makes your website look really professional.

4. Right to Your Account

Once a customer submits an application through your link, their application will be sent directly to your Octane Lending account. Under “Lender” within your application dashboard, you will see that their application is labeled “Direct From Consumer”. So, there will be no mistake of where it came from.

5. You Choose the Lender

You can then click the application and select “Copy into New”. Then, you can choose the lender you want to submit the application to.

And there you go! Now you can get a jump on the financing process and get the customer into your dealership when you get an approval.
