Key Talking Points

  • It started month 1 of the pandemic 
  • Brand names won’t risk quality 
  • Every day is a new challenge for manufacturers 
  • When is it back to normal? Recast the question “when does it get better?”
  • Improving fill rates and collaboration up and down the supply chain
  • Data planning is essential for forecasting and making better decisions 
  • Allocation- always have the “recipe” 
  • Pricing- packaging costs, inflation, supply/demand, raw material pricing by SKU. More questions are being asked which requires more pricing knowledge and transparency. 
  • Container pricing- $1,500 to 18,000. Airfreight has also increased. 
  • Economic trends- travel is increasing
  • It’s a demand problem not a supply chain problem- it is a good problem, heavy dependence on the automotive industry.

      There are many things to consider when creating a marketing plan. Among them are establishing a budget, what forms of media should be used, and whether traditional advertising, such as TV, radio, and print, is still relevant.  And of course, how much should be allocated to social media and digital advertising?
      All the above are essentials to any marketing plan. However, the first step is ensuring that you have a healthy workplace and that your employees understand your company’s culture and the overall mission and vision. 
      We all know that happy employees create happy customers. No form of advertising can overcome a toxic workplace with unhappy employees. If your employees are not creating an amazing customer experience, your marketing plan will not work.
      Advertising and marketing may bring in customers, but the people in your company creating an amazing customer experience will be the most important component of your marketing plan.  It’s the customer experience that sells work and gives the customer a reason to return. 
      Creating an amazing employee experience, which creates an amazing customer experience, is also the most cost-effective part of your marketing plan. In fact, it cost next to nothing.

      As we head toward the end of the year and look to 2023, I thought it would be beneficial for all if we share the biggest challenges that are facing auto repair shops. 
      Is it hiring new employees? Employee retention? The economy?  Technology? Or perhaps, finding the right training for your employees? 
      Let's start the conversation and post your biggest challenge!

      Dealing with BAD Customer Service: How to Handle It When You Expand Your Business
    • By Joe Marconi
      Back in the 1990s, some shop owner's feared that fuel injection, 100 mile spark plugs, the elimination of the Distributor cap, rotor and extended fluid services would be our demise. But, that didn't happen. 
      Now I hear many in our industry state that "There is no needed work on an electric vehicle, they are problem free." 
      My opinion, let's not fall into thinking that the EV car will run forever of even for years without needed service.  The EV still has tires, suspension, brakes, and a whole new area of opportunities. It will be different, but there will be a need for the Automotive Technicians and for repair shops.
      Your thoughts?

      While I am not an Auto Shop Owner anymore, my work with Elite as a business coach puts me in touch with a lot of shops around the country. And while business is still good, there are signs that it may be slowing as we head into the winter season. Perhaps the effect of inflation and the cost of living. 
      What do you see in your market?  And what should we do to maintain business through a potential slowdown?

      Drowning- panicking and putting out fires but still making it through the day. Will they reach for the ‘pole’ for extraction? They still need to grab it, but if they stop what they are doing, they will go ‘underwater.’ Don't be afraid to swallow some water Slow down to speed up The only obstacle in your way is yourself- face your fears and move past them
