German term or phrase: Internetauftritt
Nutzen Sie die Gelegenheit, um den Kunden auf den Internetauftritt ihres Hauses aufmerksam zu machen.
Dealerships are being encouraged to establish their own web pages. I can't think of what an Internetauftritt is called. Entry seems a bit tame.

Explanation:
It's the plain ol' Web site, Kim! German also has the oblique word "Internetpraesenz" that I usually translate to "Internet presence" and less frequently to "Web site".

I disagree with "Internet entry".

You could be creative and rephrase your sentence to: Avail of the opportunity to make your customers notice your venture into the World Wide Web.

Nota bene: I'd like to point out that the word/phrase "Web site" is a word in flux. Some capitalize "Web" and some don't. Some use one word capitalized (Website) and some don't (website).

Google searches produce:
Web site/web site - 14,170,000
Website/website - 30,600,000

Public preference for the one compound word is obvious...although I still prefer "Web site". I'll probably give in one of these days, but not without putting up a fight! ;-)

"venture into the Internet"


Explanation:
... is, with all due respect, un-English and not "dramatic" at all. Marcus is right: Internetauftritt is a website and nothing else!
