Dealers using RollickDR report 50% higher close rates than a standard lead capture form
AUSTIN, Texas, June 29, 2021
Rollick Inc., the leading relationship marketing technology provider for the Marine, Powersports, and RV industries, announced today that every GoRollick dealer in its network will now have access to the Reserve Now feature of its industry-first digital retailing solution for no extra cost through the end of 2021. RollickDR also contains integrated modules that allow users to view publicly available incentives and special offers, get a trade-in value estimate, schedule an appointment and use a payment calculator.
Since launching in April 2021, dealers using RollickDR report close rates that are 50% higher than a standard lead capture form. The tool also generates 87% more overall leads for dealers due to the many ways that a consumer can engage to buy the vehicle they’re interested in. The pilot showed that 40% of users who submit a lead also complete a pre-qualification. Those customers who pass the pre-qualification check closed at a rate of 240% higher than a standard lead submitted by a consumer outside of the RollickDR tool.
“We’ve seen overwhelmingly positive results on RollickDR since launching the solution in early April,” said Bernie Brenner, CEO of Rollick. “We have millions of members and employee groups through our strategic partnerships with trusted affinity organizations. They expect and appreciate the ability to provide more information to dealers while online when it improves their experience and speeds up the purchase process.”
Existing GoRollick network dealers will have the tool added for no additional charge starting in July. Dealers interested in joining the GoRollick network can learn more by visiting https://gorollick.com/company/lets-talk.
“Due to increased demand and the large amounts of inbound leads coming into our dealership daily, Rollick’s Digital Retailing Solution is generating the highest quality, transaction-ready customers I’ve ever seen. The result is valuable time savings for me and my sales team,” said Rick Santiago, Seminole Powersports.
“Giving customers the ability to build their deal online by estimating their monthly payments, pre-qualifying for financing, and scheduling appointments through Rollick’s Digital Retailing solution is going to help my dealership streamline the buying process,” said Patrick Green, Tobler Marina.
“Rollick's solutions bring a lot of value to our existing and conquest customers. The conversion process is smooth and consistently high on ROI, and Rollick’s new digital retailing solution is empowering our sales team to sell more units in less time. The Rollick team is by far the best partner I have met in the RV industry,” said Kristina Shrider, Giant Recreation World.
Rollick’s digital retailing solution provides a consolidated tool to help consumers gather detailed transaction information about a potential purchase and, when ready, provide all of the researched information to the dealer. With RollickDR, consumers can get pre-qualified for financing, review OEM & dealerships offers, estimate the value of a trade-in, schedule appointments, and reserve a vehicle in a simple interface that’s embedded in the dealer’s website.

Buying online has become common practice for both customers and retailers. With 79% of smartphone users making a purchase online within the last 6 months, finding ways to make shopping for an RV more mobile and e-commerce friendly is one of the best ways to differentiate yourself as a retailer in the RV space.
Consumers today have been trained by leading eCommerce and tech companies that anything can be delivered to them in an instant. When shopping on Amazon, buyers can point, click, and have items shipped within a couple of days, and in some cases the same day. Ask Alexa where the nearest boat dealer is located, and she immediately provides the distance to get there, directions, and will even call the dealership for you. Information is endless and easily accessible to make informed purchase decisions. However, when examining today’s retail experience in the recreation industry, the buying experience is counter to what consumers expect, especially when purchasing a big-ticket item, such as a boat.
Warranty registrations. Words that might bring about a long sigh and an eye roll for OEMs and dealers in the recreation industry. Warranties can be a great consumer benefit: they are a huge selling point and can make a one-time buyer into a lifelong customer. Submitting Registrations, on the other hand, is an extra step in the sales process and typically the last thing dealers want to think about after making a sale. However, the secret we all know is that registrations play a huge role in warranty claim management, continued customer satisfaction, and a healthy marketing ecosystem between OEMs and dealers.
