Our new (Amazing) office downtown – Torus!

There comes a time in everyone’s business when you simply outgrow your space. Well, it’s that time for us. We’ve reached critical mass and we have to make hard decisions. The 2500 square foot space that we’ve co-occupied in Arlington center with our friend Kyle Russell from Crystal Concentrics since 2007, has simply become too small for us. We love Arlington center, it’s restaurants – like Punjab, it’s businesses – like Justin Heath and The Computer Cafe, and it’s people.

Although it’s bitter sweet, we have to move. Sure, we could split time, and we are still keeping the internet on and the rooms available, for mail and for those customers who find it more convenient. However, in order to maintain the sort of quality we’ve been known to put out, we need everyone to be together in one location. That location is 333 tremont street, in the theater district. It’s a really exciting location, and we’ve been working on it for months – check out some pictures of it here.

Built in 1963, and used as a church ever since, the completely cylindrical building is truly inspirational. The church of all nations, is actually a product of the united methodist group. Founded by a man called Edgar J Helms– his reputation for helping people with jobs, opportunities, food, and general help in Boston; is equally inspiring. Thanks for helping Boston, Ed! The acoustics in the auditorium of the 70′ diameter building are amazing. As we ramp up, we’ll be opening the doors for private events, and Art Gallery, and a shared office – that means you can join us in our 14k Square foot facility! If you want to take a look at the new building – take a tour and call us. Of you want to keep updated on the progress, stay in touch via facebook – or check out www.333tremont.com

BWG Noted As Honored Business on Angie’s List

Written by Anthony D on . Posted in General

Speaking of people with a list, how about Angie? It’s not exactly Craig’s style, but we do see CL following this model in terms of monetizing the user base. We like Angie’s list, it’s basically a website where housewives can feel 10% more comfortable about who they source from the internet based on reviews and the fact that they can call into Angie’s list and complain. If there’s one thing we know about this business and those customers; they need a lot of hand-holding and story time, and that’s just what we provide very well. When we add in our normal “over delivery” we end up with ecstatic, long-term customers and great reviews. We’re ready for you Angie – put us on top of your list!

Anyway, we’ve been noted by Angies List for great reviews and great service. Check out our listing on Angie’s list here.

From Hippie To Entrepreneur – The New Craigslist.org Fees

Written by Anthony D on . Posted in Dealer Inventory Software, General

We’ve received a lot of feedback and questions about the newest updates to Craigslist.

In case you have not heard or read about it, Craigslist is going to start charging $5 per ad posted on Dec 3rd.
They also posted information about bulk posting.

Well, we have to give it up to Craig Alexander Newmark for his wonderful list, and keeping it mostly free all these years. He’s connected millions of people with places to work, places to live, things to buy, and of course… people to love.

cCraigslist (was) “a free online internet classifieds site” that started about a decade ago by a brilliant hippie named Craig Newark. Since then, it’s grown and become bigger than Craig, and by “big” we mean as big as his investors! There in lies the magic word “investor” and that is what slowly starts to deteriorate the “free” aspect.

Maybe they will change the peace sign logo into a dollar sign? That much remains to be seen – In fact, it’s not clear what sort of things are going to change, but one thing is clear – there will be fees!

One of us reached out to craigslist and spoke to them regarding these new updates! Sadly, Craig was not available. Although they weren’t entirely convinced about their own answers, this is the picture that was painted; and in terms of clarity, that picture was an impressionist oil painting that was left in the rain.

Presenting:

The new $5-per-post Craigslist cost specifics

3rd Party vendors cannot have accounts, their clients must be the account holders.

Clients need to sign up for a “paid account” they then can request API documentation to have their inventory “bulk” posted.

EACH individual account must prepay for the bulk posting.

$6000 is the prepay amount. So they must prepay for 1000+ posts at a time.

They say there us no expiration for the unused prepay posts, but they will ask users to “try to use up” the 1000+ posts within a 3 month period.

For our Auto Dealers on The Dealer Cloud, National Automotive Direct, or 365inventory, this update does not impact our functionality or your dashboard at ALL. Our tools will still work, exactly the same. We can also connect to their api for anyone that needs it and bulk feed inventory – no problems there. For manually posting, our tool still works as usual. In no way does this CL update affect us, as a tool. For you guys, yes, you’ll need to decide what to do about this $5. Please keep in mind, every single vendor, every competitor of yours, and ours, will have this same issue of $5 per ad posted, no one gets around it. So on a price competitive level, everyone is on the same playing field. This will pretty much kill all these automated posters, which will also put everyone on the same field.
