Car showrooms in Bangladesh are increasingly taking their business online through carmudi.com.bd, the fastest growing online car classified of the country. Above 400 car dealers in Bangladesh, located in Dhaka and Chittagong, are currently enlisted in Carmudi Bangladesh’s website (www.carmudi.com.bd) and generating sales from so.
“Convenience is the key; smartphone penetration is growing 30% a year now; everything can be searched online. You can save hours by screening your desired vehicles online. All you have to do is- call the dealer and decide which one to purchase! Showrooms like Rangs, Bronze Limited, Progress Motors, Car Choice, Anwar Car Company and many others are partnering with Carmudi for that purpose,” said Ashiqur Rahman, Country Manager of Carmudi Bangladesh.
“The working class doesn’t have enough time to actually visit each and every single outlet to test their desired rides. This is where our presence on Carmudi.com.bd comes in handy”, said Mr. M. Rashid Bhuiyan Parvez, owner of Bronze Limited. “Prior to Eid-Ul Adha, we successfully sold 10 bikes in 4 days,” he added.
“Mileage is an important factor which many of our people are unaware of. On the other hand, buyers from a country like Japan are well aware of its value. Carmudi has certainly helped us by availing our vehicles’ mileage details on their website”, said Mr. Md. Ziaul Hoque, owner of Anwar Car Company.
While the number of internet users of Bangladesh exceeds 40 million this year, the showroom owners sense the importance for showrooms to indulge in online promotions. Going for TVC or other media often turns up as an expensive tool of promotion for car dealers, which drove them to go online. In order to make the task easier and quicker, Carmudi Bangladesh created a virtual marketplace bringing all the vehicle buyers and sellers under one platform. If you want to buy a red Toyota Allion from Kakrail, it will take a minimum of 8 hours to visit 60 showrooms located there, whereas browsing those on carmudi.com.bd, on an average, will take 8 minutes.
Currently Carmudi Bangladesh has around 15,000 enlisted vehicles on their website. Every month over 200,000 users visit Carmudi Bangladesh’s website to look for their favorite vehicles information. To browse for your desired vehicles and car showrooms you can simply download the Carmudi android app or visit www.carmudi.com.bd .
