iDriver was founded in 2010 in the middle of the Great Recession by Robert Ready. I had been in Direct mail for 15 years and it was dead at this time. My love of computers and creativity was to play a key role in creating a whole new product as necessity and paying your bills is truly the mother of invention This idea came to me in a flash and I became obsessed with making it work relentlessly 18 hours a day. There was no other company or business I knew of doing anything like this. at this time but there also wasn't Wifi like there is today to go out and present. The growing pains were real.
I was the first automotive App in the Apple iPad and iPhone app store with this product but as Apple became more and more like working with the mob, we decided to build our own web apps which today work far better than the Apps in any app store.
Every step of the way we tried to get better, faster, including the inclusion of video and audio as well. My thanks to the dealers who had a vision with us, stuck by us and helped us grow to where we are today. This vision and the tenacity to stick with it has made us the successful Automotive Digital Marketing Company we are today.
And today we go head to head with mega companies in referral traffic to dealers websites and in head to head match ups we consistently beat Facebook ads, Google search, AutoTrader, Cars.com, Edmunds, CarGurus and the rest.
