Findacycle.com, launching this month, is calling on independent retailers to familiarise themselves with its new service in which ‘waiting customers’ search for their bike online and dealers are invited to respond directly to the customer should they be able to service the request.
Totally seperate from the actual purchase process, findacycle.com simply builds the bridge between buyer and seller. There is no requirement to upload adverts, pictures or descriptions and the site is loaded with clever tools that will enhance the experience for both the buyer and dealer alike.
Mark Harrison, owner and designer of Findacycle.com said: "The majority of independents see the web as an area that needs to be explored and utilised, but the truth is that it can be a minefield for the inexperienced, often requiring large budgets and lots of man hours to administer with no guarantee of success at the end. I am fiercely supportive of independent cycle retailers and set to work creating a concept that would give such stores a real business advantage over the online giants."
The website is offering a two month free trial and no minimum term contracts at the end. Mark Harrison is contactable on firstname.lastname@example.org
