TK Carsites Enters Into License Agreement with ContactAtOnce!™ to Enable Auto Dealer Live Chat on Websites

Customers Benefit from Improved Conversion of Website Traffic into Auto Sales

ContactAtOnce!, a leading provider of car dealer internet marketing tools that move online shoppers into live conversations with car dealers, today announced a licensing agreement with TK Carsites, a leading provider of custom auto dealer websites optimized for search engines. Under the agreement, TK Carsites will pre-integrate the ContactAtOnce! Dealer Chat solution with their dealer website platform and offer the combined solution to new and existing TK Carsites customers. ATLANTA, GA – March 4, 2009

Since we started using ContactAtOnce!, our dealership has seen a measurable improvement in the number of website visitors that come in for appointments and ultimately buy vehicles,” said Brian Chapman, general manager of Homer Skelton Ford. “Our customers seem to like the convenience of live chat and the ability to interact with a sales person immediately.”

“TK Carsites built a reputation as the best website provider in the industry through our unique custom automotive websites,” said Richard Valenta, CEO of TK Carsites. “Recently we introduced a new offering, TK5, that maximizes search engine optimization (SEO) and improves site traffic, but traffic alone isn’t enough for our customers – the “clicks” need to become appointments and that’s where the ContactAtOnce! live chat solution adds unique value.”

ContactAtOnce! powers graphical elements such as “drop-in business cards” on a dealership’s website, microsites and landing pages that appear if a sales person is available at the moment a site visitor is looking at a car. Site visitors are offered a variety of ways to contact the dealer, including chat, click-tocall, and a phone number. The graphical elements, combined with the availability of multiple convenient communication options, have been shown to increase the number of shoppers that initiate contact with auto dealers by at least 25 percent. ContactAtOnce! tracks and records all conversations, making it easy for sales managers to measure the effectiveness of car marketing and to conduct sales training. ContactAtOnce! dealer chat is simple to use and designed specifically for sales people who are notalways at their desks.

“TK Carsites helps their customers build and tune websites to attract optimum traffic and once visitors
are on the site, ContactAtOnce! Dealer Chat helps convert more of them to leads and sales,” said John
Hanger, president & CEO of ContactAtOnce!. “The combination of our products with their platform is a
win-win for TK Carsites customers who want to maximize the effectiveness of their website.”

The TK Carsites-ContactAtOnce! dealer chat solution is available from TK Carsites immediately.
