I know I already posted Dominion Enterprises Acquires AVV and its WebControl ILM / CRM a few days ago but the feedback being left by everyone was more about MyRide.com rather then WebControl (though that was my own fault), so I thought I would turn it into a separate posting and transfer everyones comments over here.
Autobytel Sells AVV Business for $22.75 Million in Cash – this is the press release from the other side.
Here is a quote taken from the press release…
“The sale of our CRM business continues our strategy of divesting our non-core operations as we complete our transition to a media-centric business,” said Autobytel Inc. President and CEO Jim Riesenbach. “We continue to sharpen our focus on our recently-launched flagship website, MyRide.com”
Flagship? I don’t know about you, but MyRide.com drives me crazy. I find myself easily lost on the site and always clicking on the main logo to get back to the home page. I can’t seem to grasp exactly what the site is for?…community networking, vehicle data base for search, vehicle research or what? And I don’t see how they could possibly fit any more ads on the site.
Autobytel describes MyRide.com as the…
“first vertical search experience for the automotive marketplace. “MyRide.com is designed to help Internet-savvy consumers FIND, SEE, BUY and LEARN anything automotive and BELONG to a diverse community of people who have similar automotive interests.” Vertical Search Experience?
Nice try! Hopefully they’ll use some of that money they made selling AVV and hire someone to fill in their description tags so consumers can actually find the site in the search sngines.
