I’ve been in the market for a new car the past few weeks. So naturally, the first thing I did was head online to start my search. One of the first places I headed online was Cars.com. If you haven’t heard of that website before, maybe you’re an inchworm or a snail because surely you’ve been living under a rock the past 10 years. Anyway, I used the site to browse for the EXACT car I was looking for down to the last detail; make, model, price range, color, etc. The only aspect of the search I failed to double-check was location. I filled out a lead generation form for a vehicle WAY too far away that I couldn’t even consider looking at it or buying it. But, everyday I got so many phone calls that I was going bonkers. Even when I explained my situation to the person on the other line, the phone callers still persisted. It was downright annoying. This, my friends, is one of the reasons lead generation sites get such a mixed-view reputation. Everyone wants to find easy results online, but no one wants to be harassed with phone calls and emails.
