A Couple Quick Tips That Will Bring More Customers Into Your Shop
Tip #1 – Network with Non-Competing Businesses. I am sure there are plenty of businesses in your community that can help you market your shop, and vice versa. There are two great ways to take advantage of this situation:
1. Create a flyer and ask those businesses if you can leave 100 -200 with them, and let them know you will keep some of their flyers in your auto repair shop as well.
2. You can also create a system where if something is bought in the business that you have made a partnership with, the customer receives a $5 coupon that can be used at your shop, and you can do the same for the partnering business. For example, your auto repair shop and a car wash business could partner up to help send new customers each other’s way.
Tip #2 – Don’t Forget the Power of Word of Mouth – Make sure that every customer that comes into your shop is completely satisfied and feels fully informed about his vehicle. Every customer that leaves your shop satisfied is a potential advertising machine that can tell all of their friends what a great job you did for them. So go that extra mile because, at the end of the day, that extra mile ends up being a lot shorter than you think, and is extremely rewarding.
