Extract Car Sales Leads with Parseur

Automotive lead acquisition use case cover

Are you in the automotive industry or in car dealerships? Do you get hundreds of car leads from your emails, contact forms, and other automotive lead generation sites?

The format in which you receive that information from potential car buyers may be different and poorly structured. It can be time-consuming to manually retrieve the exact data that you need, thus slowing down your sales process.

Parseur has a very simple solution for you!

Why use Parseur to manage your car sales leads?

As a powerful email parsing tool, Parseur allows you to easily extract specific text from your automotive leads received by email. You can export parsed data to any applications. This way, you never keep potential customers waiting!

Let's get started and see how that works!

Step 3: Forward your email from your personal inbox to your Parseur mailbox

You will receive an email address for your mailbox to forward your first email to.

As an example, we will take the case where car dealers receive customer leads via CarGurus. Parseur processes emails from other car websites as well such as Cars.com , CarsDirect.com among other auto industry leading dealerships. Parseur can extract data from any email or attachment.

Step 4: Create your first template

Once Parseur receives your email, you will be asked to create your first template.

This is an example of a typical email received from CarGurus.com

From there, you can teach Parseur which specific information you require.

Highlight the data and create fields for each of them, as per below screenshot:

Save the template and check that your document was processed correctly. This is how your parsed results will look:

It takes a couple of minutes to create a template and this is just a simple one-time process to create parsing rules for your template. You have the freedom to choose which data you need and which ones can be discarded.

Step 5: Forward your leads automatically to your mailbox

Once your first template is ready, every email that you send in a similar format will be processed automatically! There will be zero manual work for you as this process will be completely automated.

For best results, we recommend set up an auto-forward for your emails.

Step 6: Export your parsed data to your application

Once data has been extracted, you can send it anywhere you need.

Parseur offers several export strategies. You can:

  1. download the extracted information as Excel, CSV or JSON
  2. Send it to Google Sheets
  3. Export the structured data in real-time to any applications of your choice (CRM or marketing automation)
