Women-Drivers.com™ allows women to Write Reviews about various car dealerships and educates and quickly connects consumers with Certified Women-Drivers Friendly™ Dealers in the United States. How Consumers and Auto Dealers both benefit? Dealerships would be wise to pay attention to the shifting demographics of the auto buyer as research shows that women influence up to 80% of car purchases: 54% of new cars in the United States are purchased by women and 68% of these women finance their purchase. More loyal than men, women request 65% of the mechanical service work done at dealerships. The online reputation management (ORM) tools are free of charge and allow dealers to engage and market to women based upon actual consumer reviews. The reviews are integrated into a dealership’s Facebook and Twitter sites -- social channels where women spend a lot of time on-line. What Are the Criteria for Being a Certified Women-Friendly™ Dealership? A dealership must have a minimum of ten reviews to qualify. For each review written, a rating is posted with scores ranging from a 5.0 (Excellent) to a 1.0 (Marginal). Each review falls under one of three categories: Browsing, Purchasing or Servicing. A Certified Women-Drivers Friendly™ rating of 3.8 or higher indicates that a dealership has earned the trust and reputation of being service-oriented towards women.   About Women Drivers Women-Drivers.com is a review site where women rate their experiences at car dealers in the United States.
