Rideitaway.co.uk launches, bringing footfall to your shop
Posted on 24 Feb 2014
Rideitaway.co.uk has now launched, helping customers to find their local Ride it away retailer and work out their budget to buy a bike on finance
The Ride it away retail finance scheme is available via hundreds of independent cycle retailers throughout the UK, offering customers the opportunity to purchase a new bike and accessories by spreading the cost with as little as 0% interest.
Ride it away cycle finance is a key sales tool for independent bike shops since it launched in 2010 and is now responsible for over £50m of sales per year.
The retail network has significantly grown in recent years, with almost 650 stores now offering retail finance and a further 46% of the trade planning to implement it over the coming months, according to a recent ActSmart poll.
Cycle finance has also grown substantially amongst consumers. In a recent survey 71% of customers would have postponed their purchase had finance not been available.
To give Ride it away retailers even further promotion and to make it even easier for customers to find their local shop, www.rideitaway.co.uk has now been launched.
The site highlights the key benefits of buying a bike on finance via the scheme and helps customers to find their local retailer via the shop search facility, as well as work out how much they can afford if buying a bike on finance with the Finance Calculator.
The site was launched at the end of last year but is already growing, with the number of unique visitors seeing a steady growth month by month.
The site was created by ActSmart's online marketing partners, Leadspring, who specialise in not only the creation of sites, but also optimising search engine terms. Already the site is gaining over 70% of it's traffic from Google, and as the site develops it should soon become the place for consumers to find YOUR shop.
