We’ve been working frantically behind the scenes at ScooterLab since we launched last month. Coming soon is a major component of our online magazine (providing we don’t break it first!). It’s a massive and useful resource for scooter riders, dealers, event organisers, event goers and scooter clubs.
Our dealer finder will allow a search by location, distance, brands, services and a whole load more. If a customer wants a Kymco serviced in Bradford he can find his nearest dealer. If somebody wants a part for a classic scooter whilst touring they’ll be able to locate a suitable shop and get directions via Google mapping to take them straight to the shop door. Customers will also be able to click the link to a shop and buy mail order, check what you stock or just browse. It’s going to be a great place for dealers to advertise and for customers to get the info they need.
Dealers will get a free basic listing but they can also pay to have a more substantial presence and even upload their stock of used scooters, or special offers with photos and details. They can include a virtual shop tour by video if they like and show everything a customer might need to see. This can all be done in a similar way to uploading to eBay but is quicker and easier.
If you’re a dealer be sure to check to see if you’re already on our database by searching the Dealer Finder when it goes live, check and amend any details if they’re incorrect. If you’re not there (many of you won’t be) then please add yourself. You can do a free basic listing but it’d be nice if you gave your business the prestige it deserves by upgrading and making full use of the facilities on offer.
We’ve been busy uploading most of the major rallies and events for the last few weeks, as you can imagine it’s a laborious time-consuming job and there’s every chance we may not have everything listed and there are bound to be a few mistakes. Check the listings and amend any details that may be incorrect. If your event isn’t listed please input it yourself. Again a basic listing is free but we’re keeping our upgraded listings as cheap as possible. Show your event off properly by listing it with a flyer, photos of previous events, videos and as many details as possible. This is your virtual shop window so make the best of it.
We don’t plan to charge for scooter club listings at all, so you can make use of the listing facilities to add photos, video and information about your club and where you meet – all for free.
Do it yourself
We want the Dealer & Events section to be as simple to navigate as possible, it will also be easy to upload and the payment process for paid listings will be as pain free and affordable as possible. If you can upload a photo to Facebook then this isn’t any harder.
