Help needed. If I'm wrong, I need to be corrected ASAP

Recommended Posts

I released a video on my blog yesterday that seems to be causing a bit of a stir. Some shop owners are saying my idea is brilliant - others say I'm totally wrong.

In a nutshell, I'm advocating giving away $100 in services for a new client referral.

The last thing I want to do is give away bad information, so I'm asking for some help to set me straight if I'm way off base.

You can watch the video here for my full explaination: http://www.captaincarcount.com/auto-repair-marketing/is-this-a-crazy-idea-or-what/

      Has the Coronavirus (COVID-19) impacted your auto shop business? If it hasn't yet, it has the potential to do so soon. Please share what you are currently doing, how your business is impacted, what plans you have in place, etc.
      Some things to consider:
      Do you have a plan in place should you or one of your employees become ill? With school, event, and business closures, how will this affect your shop? Are you sending anything to your customers in terms of sharing your plans around keeping your customer and employees healthy and doing your part in your community? Many small and large businesses have been sending email communications to their customers. Are you marketing to your customers in terms of not delaying car repair, should there be a need to temporarily close? Are your parts suppliers sharing their plans, should the pandemic affect supply chains?  Are you stocking up on business and shop necessities? Please share your experience in this topic and stay healthy!
      In the media:
      The coronavirus and its growing tally of sick and dead victims around the world have been roiling financial markets, prompting countless hand-washing reminders and ruining more than a few vacations, and that’s before anyone knows exactly how widespread the effect will be on the automotive industry, including your local repair shop. Source
      “By mid-March, the shortage of supplies will be felt and members are projecting they’ll experience disruption through May or June,” even if operations in China soon get back to normal, said Stacey Miller, senior director of communications at the Auto Care Association, a trade group representing 150,000 auto aftermarket and service businesses.

      THIS IS DIFFERENT
      I know, I know.
      Yet ANOTHER message about the Coronavirus.
      But this one's different. Let's get to work.
      Here’s What I know:
      1. What's going to happen: Things are going to get weird. Then they will get better. 
      It's a new virus. It's contagious. It gets people really sick. A small percentage of those people die. That  sucks.
      2. What is "everybody" going to do?
       People are going to continue to panic and then they'll stop.
      They're going to panic for two reasons.
      First, because this is a new virus and it's pretty nasty and that's pretty scary.
      Second, because of the media ...specifically social media.
      It's full of anecdotal "reports" ...and light on facts.We humans like to pass on "information" without checking it out.
      And traditional media (the news) gets paid for viewership ...and nothing drives viewership like FEAR.
      In my opinion, World Health Organization is probably the best place to get your info about this situation.
      3. What this means for Your Repair Shop: The best answer I can give you here is ...IT DEPENDS. 
      The best advice I can give you is actually a quote from one of my long time mentors, Mr. Jim Rohn.
      Mr. Rohn once said… (this isn’t a direct quote, but you’ll get the gist of it)...
      “You can not change the direction of the winds.
      You can change the setting of your sails.”
      Are you going to spend your time browsing social media, watching the news all day, and talking back and forth with people about this situation?
      Or are you going to FOCUS on business?
      I'd suggest you focus on business, avoid crowds, and wash your hands.
      If you step up and LEAD them, you'll stand out. (And it's good Karma.)
      Think about it this way.
      Most of your competition will be following the herd and doing the whole "let's sit around and talk about the corona virus ...while simultaneously browsing social media and reading stuff about the coronavirus...while simultaneously watching the news for updates on the coronavirus thing.
      That means they're NOT promoting. They're NOT in front of the market. They're NOT in the game.
      What I'm doing personally:
      1. Avoiding large crowds, washing my hands, and keeping my immune system strong.
      2. Not paying attention to anyone other than non-biased expert health organizations. 
      That means no social media.No news media. Just the facts.
      3, I’ve got new free training being released in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned and I’ll keep you posted.

      Got your attention?  Good! 
      Take it from me, a shop owner for 40 years;  before you invest a dime on advertising, get your internal marketing in order....in other words...get your house in order.
      No amount of advertising or marketing means more than what you do each and every day. And that is creating an amazing customer experience that gives your customers a compelling reason to return.  
      Make sure that each customer contact point creates a positive experience. The phone call, the drive up to your shop, the parking lot, the customer write-up, the upsell, the car delivery and every other point of contact with the customer.  
      These things I speak of means more than any money you spend on advertising.  So, before you spend that dime, get your house in order. And remember, everyone in your shop is an important part of your marketing strategy!

      Hello and Welcome! Thanks for taking the time to check this out. 
      Obviously the auto service market is changing. More competition; Price shoppers; Worse than that, where do you start promoting if you want to grow your car count? 
      Good news! There’s really only 3 areas  you need to focus on. Instead of writing it all out and asking you to read it - I created this video - it’s a little over 5 minutes, but it’ll be 5 minutes well worth it.


       
      Let me know if you have any questions. I’d be pleased to respond!
