Here are a few things to consider when choosing which vehicles to Super Feature

New vehicles to your yard

Build up a good base of watchlisters early on. It’ll increase your chances of selling the vehicle quickly, and will drive buyers to act with urgency by promoting the vehicle's popularity with “X people watching” visible on the listing.

We recommend you pair this with our Price Drop Promo & Emails for a strategic push to drive enquiries. Find out more on how these work.

Old stock needing an extra push

You might have some vehicles on your yard that have been there a little too long. As stock sits on site for longer periods of time, it will sit lower in search results. Super Featuring that stock will pull it back to the top of search results, helping it find the right buyer.

How to change your Super Featured vehicles

To change which vehicles you're Super Featuring yourself, start by logging into DealerBase:

  • Click ‘Manage Stock’ in the header, which will open up a list of options.
  • Under the ‘advertising’ header, click on Trade ‘Me listing promotion’.
  • Under the ‘Super Featured’ column on the right, untick the vehicles you’d like to remove the Super Feature from, and then select the new vehicles you want to Super Feature.

There are automated options you can also set up here. This means if a Super Featured vehicle sells you can automatically assign it to either your oldest/newest listing or highest/lowest priced vehicle. Just click the ’Automated Options’ drop down which sits just below the title when you’re on the ‘Listing Promotion’ page.

You can change these as often as you like, but we recommend leaving a vehicle Super Featured for at least a week before changing it again to give it the best chance of success.

Consider setting a scheduled time each week where you change which vehicles you Super Feature.
