Tools If you have a large email list, use email platforms such as Mailchimp or Constant Contact. This will allow you to send various emails and increase your email open rate. The first day of the crowdfunding campaign is critical to its success. Now is the time to build the momentum you created in the pre-launch phase. In the second week after the launch, send an email to all those who have not yet contributed and provide them with the final deal. Remind them that even if they cannot contribute, they can provide support by spreading information to friends. During the event, you can make a limited-time rush, increase your efforts on social media, and create a messaging with the “last time” offer. Once the crowdfunding campaign is over and the product is on the market, raise the price to make your supporters feel that they are getting a special offer. Most importantly, send an email to thank them because they are your future customers.
Spread your opportunities
There are several online platforms where you can advertise. Also let colleagues, friends and acquaintances know that your car is for sale. The “For Sale” sign behind the window also helps. Remember, the more people see your car, the more potential buyers you can expect. Good value for money but also a time-consuming activity.
An ideal ad should contain at least the following photos:
• Left front outside
• Right rear exterior
• Counter with engine running
• Full dashboard
• any damage
Honesty is the best policy
Be honest about damage and defects. In principle, technical shortcomings must always be remedied, but it must of course be profitable when sold. Make sure the end buyer won’t blame you if you choose not to fix it. As the saying goes, “What you don’t want to happen to you…” is not without reason.
Don’t price yourself out of the market
Know the current asking price in the market in advance. What do people want in a similar car? Take advantage of this with competitive prices. Don’t sit too high: no one will come. But don’t let your prices go too low either, this arouses suspicion.
If you don’t wait for all this, you can also offer your car to the sales service. You will then receive a guaranteed and fair (trade) price for your car within one day, free of charge and without obligation.
