All classified scripts based on the WorksForWeb platform, including Automobile Script, offer a great way of searching among registered users in a particular user group or on the entire website.
Search results will be a list of users found with their brief descriptions. Each item on the user search results page contains a very brief overview of the company, links to the full company profile, all listings by this company, and a contact user page (all modifiable via templates).
The admin can further customize and add various modules to the User Search page, determine which user groups are available for search (e.g., individual users should probably not be available for search), and add additional user details as search parameters. (Read iAuto user manual)
Suppose you own an auto classified website. Your website has been targeting two types of vehicle sellers: individuals as part of the For Sale by Owner (FSBO) setup, and corporate vendors such as local new or used car dealers, each having a number of cars to list on your website.
Further, every dealer has many potential or existing customers. Dealers are likely to add links to their profile pages on your website to their business cards and flyers. This will definitely increase the popularity of your website and will provide a steady source of target visitors, and will expand the outreach for your customers among the vehicle dealers.
Here is an example of the corporate user profile
Moreover, many customers choose what vehicle dealer they want to work with. The dealer search functionality helps find the best among a number of vehicle dealers in this particular town. Therefore, your website becomes not only a platform to help people find a new or used car, but also a vehicle dealer business directory with a huge marketing perspective for those listed on it.
