Industry watchers believe Upillar.com is well-positioned to give other online-classified sites a run for the money
ST. GEORGE, Utah - July 14, 2009: Upillar.com Motors officially launched today with the mission of helping dealers establish a more successful, less expensive online presence and a more efficient marketplace. Among its first-to-market features, Upillar.com Motors is the only online-listing site purpose-built – incorporating patent-pending technology – to automatically include up-to-date vehicle valuation data from the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Appraisal Guides in every vehicle listing. Unlike other sites, car buyers aren’t required to leave Upillar.com and manually find and fill in information about a particular car to determine if the asking price is fair; NADA data is already filled in and on the same page as the vehicle. Nor does the dealer have to expend extra effort. As the car information is input, the NADA data populates the listing automatically. Founder and CEO Trevor Milton, 27, said Upillar.com’s nationwide launch comes in the wake of strong demand after months of beta testing for the flat-fee vehicle-listing service, now available at an introductory price of $750 per year for each dealership. “Dealer reaction to Upillar.com Motors has been very promising,” said Milton, a serial entrepreneur. “Car dealers love the combination of unlimited listings with no expiration dates; detailed customer tracking; call tracking; email tracking; complimentary toll-free number; and unlimited calls. With Upillar.com Motors, it’s easy to upload your vehicles in a short time. We work with a dealer’s inventory-management company or help dealers upload listings themselves – and we typically can have inventory up and searchable within 72 hours of creating an account. From then on, a dealer’s inventory is updated nightly. It’s completely effortless! Dealers list their vehicles once, and they automatically remain searchable from anywhere. For a flat $750 a year, you can’t beat it!” Milton, who founded Upillar.com to specifically address the pain points he experienced while establishing his own successful online auto sales operation, stressed the significance of Upillar.com’s proprietary valuation tool, developed in cooperation with NADA, “the voice of the dealer.” “With Upillar.com, dealers can automatically prove the quality of the deal they’re offering to interested buyers,” he explained. “We also make it easy for them to create virtual dealerships, and to draw attention to featured items with cost-effective premium listings.” Another key feature proving popular with dealers: Upillar.com offers a 1-800 number tracking feature that allows dealers to record and monitor calls by their sales people, and lets them track the results of each of their Upillar.com listings. Industry watchers believe Upillar.com is well-positioned to give other online classified sites a run for the money, successfully competing for the attention of the 132 million online buyers and sellers predicted to emerge over the next decade in a recent Pew study. By melding state-of-the-industry search capabilities and exclusive NADA data access with the most-popular features of established auction and classified sites, Upillar.com is positioning itself to become the online auto-sales category killer. “I see dealerships every day that spend upwards of $40,000 a year to list on other sales sites,” Milton explained. “Upillar.com offers dealers a much-needed way to save tens of thousands of dollars. At a flat $750 a year, you can’t find a better solution.” This article was picked up by Fox Business, Utah Pulse, The Auto Channel, Aftermarket Carlenta, Trading Markets, Advanced Auto Agent, and Scottrade.

UPILLAR.COM SETS ONLINE SELLERS FREE. HOW? THAT’S CLASSIFIED…

Upstart Free Classified Ad Site Melds Superior Search Capabilities, Built-In NADA Valuation Tool; Offers Promotional Upgrades, T-Shirts, Contests for Early Sellers on Site Free from Sex Listings

ST. GEORGE, Utah (July 14, 2009) – “Superior search, meet instant valuation. Valuation? Superior search.”

Upillar.com – the easiest, most efficient and most cost-effective place to buy and sell items online – launched today with the mission of eliminating the aggravation, exposure to sexual content, time and expense experienced by users of most established auction and electronic-classified advertising sites.

Founder and CEO Trevor Milton, 27, said Upillar.com’s nationwide launch comes in the wake of strong demand for the free online listing service generated during months of beta testing. “Reaction to Upillar.com has been extremely gratifying,” said Milton, a serial entrepreneur. “Once they try it, people love the combination of free listings, our unique search capabilities, and our proprietary valuation tools. It’s easy to post a lot of items in a short time – and then you don’t have to think about them again until someone wants to buy.

“With Upillar.com, you list your item once and it automatically remains searchable from anywhere. There’s no need to post an item in multiple markets; there’s no need to constantly relist items to stay in front of potential buyers; and there’s no need to constantly ‘babysit’ your listings for the 60 days that all of our listings remain live.

“It’s an unbeatable combination!” Milton says.

Among its first-to-market features, Upillar.com is the only online-listing site purpose-built – incorporating patent-pending technology – to automatically include up-to-date valuation data from the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) in every vehicle listing. Unlike other classified sites, buyers do not have to go to another website and manually fill in information about a particular car to determine if the asking price is fair. Data from the NADA Appraisal Guides is already filled in and on the same page as the vehicle.

Free means free

Another aspect of the site that is appealing to users unhappy with other online sales sites: Upillar.com has made the strategic decision to stay out of the financial transaction between buyers and sellers. It has no plans to establish an online payment service and, therefore, imposes no surcharges on individual sales.

“Some sites claim to be free to end users, but they require so much time and effort from the seller, they make it tough for buyers to find the items they’re looking for or they impose hidden fees. Are they really free?” Milton poses. “At Upillar.com, our basic listings are free. Our buyers and sellers are free to pay and accept payment however they see fit. And our search function and site navigation frees our sellers from the work of maintaining listings other so-called free sites require.”

The free online listing service derives its revenues primarily from fees for premium listings and from automotive, motorcycle, RV and boat dealerships. Upillar.com is rapidly attracting dealers interested in establishing flat-fee, “virtual dealerships” with its patented, built-in inclusion of NADA vehicle-valuation data in every listing. “Auto dealers are now able to automatically prove the quality of the deal they’re offering to interested buyers,” Milton explains. “We also make it easy for them to create virtual dealerships, and to draw attention to important items with cost-effective premium listings.”

Safety first

Another “free” feature Upillar.com can lay claim to: Freedom from porn and sex listings. The company’s management team is committed to creating a safe environment that’s free from inappropriate material. “One of our core missions is keeping Upillar.com free from some of the less savory listings that have offended users and sullied the reputations of other online ad services,” Milton says. “We’re working hard to create the kind of environment that you won’t mind your 12-year-old clicking through.”

Industry watchers believe Upillar.com is well-positioned to give other online-classified sites a run for the money, successfully competing for the attention of the 132 million online buyers and sellers predicted to emerge over the next decade in a recent Pew study.

By focusing its early business model on auto dealers, Upillar.com comes out of the gate with a targeted, focused and motivated base for driving revenues – and the site’s pricing strategy for online retailers and dealers is designed to appeal to cash-strapped businesses – especially those in the automobile industry.

Free upgrades for all! Aloha!

To sweeten the pot for first-time users, Upillar.com is offering an introductory promotion – with perks ranging from free listing upgrades to participation in a drawing for a free trip for four to Maui – for individuals who post multiple listings on the site. Those who register with the code “FreeStuff” will receive a free upgrade for their first item listing. Those posting at least five items for sale will receive five free listing upgrades; post 10 items for sale and Upillar.com will upgrade your listings to featured home page listings. Put up 15 items, and Upillar.com will upgrade your listings and send you a free T-shirt. Finally, every user who posts an item for sale will be automatically entered into a year-end drawing for the Maui trip. “Free listings, promotional upgrades and the chance to see Hawaii!” said Milton. “Is there a better way to get rid of the clutter and generate some cash?”
