Promote Your Fleet

With COOP, promoting your idle commercial vehicles to your business network is easy and brings renters right to your doorstep. By advertising your business’s vehicles, you will be able to get more exposure to maximize your own fleet’s utilization and generate more revenue. It’s also worth mentioning that transactions within your network are a great way to strengthen your business’ connections and reach in your own industry. Outreach large and small contributes to the expansion of your business.

Here you’ll discover all the ways to guide local renters to the web page with all your available vehicles. Consider promoting your fleet when you know the vehicles will be sitting in the lot. Help us help you get them out on the road instead!

Double-Check Your Listings & Profile

First things first, let’s make sure you’ve covered the best practices as an owner on the platform. Review your account to see that you have optimized your listings, built a profile that familiarizes renters with your business, and made the vehicles road-ready for when the reservations come in.

Find Your Fleet Page Link

Now, let’s find your fleet’s permanent web link so you can start advertising it.

  • Go to your COOP profile.
  • Select the Manage Fleet tab
  • Click the “Copy your fleet URL” button below “Advertise your fleet” to copy the url link that leads to your Fleet Page
  • Click the “Copy your fleet URL” button to copy the url link that leads to your fleet page
  • Use this link every time you want to invite your network to rent your vehicles.

Invite your Network

Next up, let’s explore how you can share your Fleet Page

Consider what methods you typically use to talk to people and use those channels. If you normally promote your business via email, start off right by emailing your Fleet Page to all your customers. If you often communicate via text message, suggest your Fleet Page there as a solution to fellow businesses’ commercial fleet needs. Reminders on social media are great for businesses of all kinds.
