Facebook Marketing Strategy

Tire and auto repair shops that are not on Facebook are invisible to the wider world. It’s not enough to simply have your address and hours of operation online. You need to think of Facebook, and all of social media, strategically. That means finding ways to engage customers and prospects in a way that gives them value, and to have the discipline to maintain that relationship on a consistent basis.

Here are six easy ways to use Facebook to your advantage:

What are value-added assets to your tire and auto services business

What are value-added services to your business

Are they the office supplies you need at the front desk? No. What about the mop and bucket and cleaning supplies you may use to tidy up after hours? Probably not.

You know the assets that drive your tire and auto services business are the tools that deliver quality service that keep your customers coming back for more. The alignment rack, for example, the air compressor, or your oil caddy — these are the essential tools for your business that drive sales. But it’s not just that you have them, it’s what you do with them that matters. Everyone has technicians, but not all have expert technicians.

How Digital Marketing Can Help You Sell More Tires

What's your online marketing strategy.jpg

Tire buyers are now more sophisticated in how they purchase tires. They research more online and expect to interact with retailers in ways that go beyond stepping through the door at a brick-and-mortar outlet.

These days, buyers are more empowered when it comes time to purchase. Because they have search engines at their fingertips, they understand the world of tire brands more, are knowledgeable about pricing, comparisons, and even what other users are saying about whichever brand they are considering.

This means you need to be smarter about how you interact with your buyers. Not only can you use digital marketing tools to reach out to buyers in a more targeted way, but you can also accommodate buyers by presenting them with the tools they not just need, but expect. Here are a few ways you can start now:

How to Connect with your Customers Better

How to connect with customers better with texting.jpg

Communication is key for auto service departments and tire shops. Customers want to know how long their car will be on the rack, the scope of the repairs and cost, and those answers often change by the hour due to supply availability, labor, unforeseen glitches, and more. So how can you keep open a clear line of communication with customers who increasingly don’t own landlines, are always mobile, and often prefer voicemail to talking to a live person?

Spring is coming. How to drive more traffic to your tire and auto repair shop.png

Americans hit the road most often when spring arrives. More than a third of American drivers take vacations during the spring and summer, according to the American Automobile Association (AAA), which inevitably means there is a high likelihood for emergency maintenance on their vehicles.

That’s where your tire and auto service shop comes in. Despite the calendar saying it is winter, now is the time to think creatively about how to reach drivers in your area before they embark on that costly road trip once the weather warms up.

The data is on your side. The AAA reported last year that it rescued 7 million American drivers and that 4 out of 10 people are not prepared when road disaster strikes. The most common maladies on the road? Dead batteries, flat tires, and vehicle lockouts.

Here are ways to prepare your customers — and gain new ones — through marketing messages and events designed around the upcoming busy road season.
