Over 4.5 Million Cars in Inventory

We list over 4.5 millions cars in our online inventory. In addition to powering many of the nation’s top-tier shopping sites, we’ve created brands of our own to help dealers sell cars and grow revenue.

Our brands help consumers find new and used vehicles in their area, and show the most popular vehicles by segment, which helps expand consideration set and drive traffic into dealers.

 We talk to 10,000 car shoppers every day.

Because there are 300+ make/model combinations on the market today, the car buying process can be confusing. In fact, 78% of shoppers change their mind after their search begins, and 50% of shoppers change their mind from the time they submit a request.

Our call center helps thousands of shoppers through the buying process every day. We’ve found that in cases where we personally engage shoppers through our call center, we can increase their awareness, expand their consideration set, and drive them to multiple dealers who can ultimately help them make the best decision.

#1 Largest Poster of Automotive Ads to Craigslist

Because Craigslist attracts ten times more car shoppers than Autotrader and, we’ve designed software that allows dealers to intelligently manage and sell inventory.  The results are staggering – 50,000 ads per month, driving 100,000 clicks and calls to our dealer customers.

In addition to customizable target area and real-time reporting and analysis, Postr™ offers the following powerful features:

  • Smart Posting™ software that posts only those cars that sell
  • Auto Pull & Updates that automatically converts inventory into listings, and publishes updates on the fly
  • Sale Swap™ that automatically swaps out sold vehicles for new listings


Our software maximizes the targeting capabilities of Facebook to identify and engage online car shoppers.

By delivering personalized content and deploying real-time test drive incentives, our software starts the conversations on Facebook that drive traffic to showrooms.

Reconnect with shoppers with relevant conversation.
