6Choose the right hardware
There are many GPS trackers sellers out there. The most important factors to take into account are the price, quality and functionality.
Price is largely dependent on the quality of the device itself. That can be influenced by the quality of the materials it is built with, but it also includes where the device is built. We have tested different GPS trackers brands from China and we must admit that some of these have really good quality, such as Coban, Meitrack, Ulbotech, etc. Watch video about one of them.
Functionality is what you'll be looking at once you've decided what your target audience is. If you're only looking to track the location of your personal car, then a simple Chinese GPS tracker will work. However, if you're looking to add other features, such as fuel level sensors, fuel flow meters, temperature sensors, locked-door statuses, etc., then you'll need a more sophisticated GPS tracker like Teltonika, which is made in Europe.
In the GPSWOX online store, we’ve decided to sell only the most reliable Teltonika trackers, check all our GPS trackers.
7Create a professional website
A solid website is crucial for your business success, since it will help you establish credibility as a trusted company. However, creating a modern website can be very costly and time-consuming. To help make this easier for you, we provide website building services to create and offer you a ready-to-use professional website for a small monthly or lifetime price. Even more, since we’ve been in this business for more than 4 years, we already know what works and doesn’t when it comes to your website.

- Connecting website with tracking software (user registration and login windows)
- E-commerce integration with PayPal or other system (sell trackers and software)
- Social media integration (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
- Onsite optimization (SEO), so you will get ranked higher in Google
- Website hosting on our powerful server (globally-optimized speed)
8Advertise on the right platforms
Without advertising you won’t get customers – that much is obvious. However, how do you know which marketing channels are most profitable?
Here are some of the best tips from the GPSWOX marketing department:
- In the beginning, try to find online sources where you can advertise for free, such as GPS tracking catalogs, free ad portals, Facebook groups, etc.
- Start advertising with Google Adwords and you will get visitors the same day. However, due to some keyword popularity and high search volumes, click prices can be high.
- In the long term, do SEO (search engine optimization). To rank higher in Google you need to do onsite and external optimization. You can find more info about this topic in other sources.
- And last but not least is social networks (Facebook, Twitter, etc.). Creating your own profile page there is free. However, to get people to follow you or get likes, you’ll need to buy ads. With the right targeting and ads, however, you can get visitors to your site for less than $0.01 per visitor. For better results, you’ll need to be creative and share interesting and useful content.
Note: we would not recommend advertising on other digital networks besides Google. You should also forget about advertising on TV, paper magazines or big outdoor campaigns, since it’s very expensive compared to digital marketing, and the targeted reach is much lower. As time goes on, try different online advertising channels, and you will see what works for you business better and where your ROI (return on investment) is highest.
