About the Client

Brandon Ford is the only Automotive Dealership in the Orlando Region (virtually all of the Southeastern US), and one of only 22 dealers nationwide, to win Ford's Presidents Award 12 years in a row. Brandon Ford also carries up to 10 times the amount of inventory found at other Florida dealers, and one of the largest inventories in the nation. Brandon Ford's low pricing philosophy and massive selection have helped them become recognized by Ford Motor Company as the #1 Volume Ford dealer in the entire Southeastern United States. Plus, big screen TV's, WiFi, indoor and outdoor play areas are just a few amenities that make Brandon Ford a cut above the rest.

The Breakdown

The look and feel of the original that launched over a year ago is a fading memory. DealerFire and Brandon Ford have worked together on several sweeping changes and enhancements like the reviews module, tabbed VDPs, site speed, additional and refined calls-to-action, and much more. All of these have improved user engagement and increased lead conversion.
