Marketing Mojo


Recommended Posts

The term “mojo” can mean different things to different people. For some, it means being “in the swing of things” or on top of their game. When a business owner has marketing mojo, they are on top of their marketing efforts and are having fun with them. Having this mojo is very desirable. When a business owner is having fun with their marketing, it won’t seem like a chore at all.

 

 

 

 

 

One of the easiest ways to develop marketing mojo is for a business owner to fully know their product. What are the product’s best features? What can the product do that the competition’s product can’t?

 

 

Setting mini marketing goals can be a fun way to stay on track. Constantly setting and meeting new deadlines will help raise confidence and that will definitely get your mojo running.

 

 

These mini goals can be based on tasks that need to be done, such as writing your monthly newsletter or spending an hour doing some social networking. They can also be based on new things you would like to learn.

 

 

Learn By Doing

 

 

One of the best ways to build your marketing mojo is to just do it. Instead of spending hours of your time reading up on the latest marketing techniques and then debating over which will benefit your business, try different ideas out as you go.

 

 

By testing the waters yourself, you can better judge what is going to be worth your time and what needs to be tweaked to suit your product.

 

 

Don’t be afraid to experiment or modify marketing ideas that you have discovered. Changes to the standards are what give companies an edge in their marketing strategies.

 

 

Even if the tactics you test out do not work for you, analyze why they didn’t quite pan out and see where you can build on the strengths and weaknesses. Those with real marketing mojo learn from their mistakes and downfalls, creating a better plan for the next effort.

 

 

Watch Pros In Action

 

 

Feed off the marketing mojo of others to help build your own. Watching the marketing strategies of those who have already found success is a great way to build your business’ arsenal. What works for them just might work for you as well.

 

 

Networking with other business owners both in and out of your own industry can really pay off with new marketing tips and ideas. Ask for their advice or just keep an eye on what they are doing to present their own product to the world.

 

 

Set goals for yourself, try out new ideas, learn from others and above all, have fun with your marketing efforts. Before you know it, you’ll have your own marketing mojo working and will be reaping the benefits of your success.

      There seem to be mixed opinions on what Business System is the best. And also, not all business systems fit a particular repair shop model.
      There are a lot of new players in the past few years: Auto Leap, Protractor, Teckmetrics, Shop Boss, Shop Monkey, and more.

      Here is an excerpt from a report from Lang Marketing:  Read and enjoy! 
      Six Major Takeaways
      Lang Marketing expects that new car and light truck volume will remain in low gear from 2020 through 2023 compared to the previous four years (2016 through 2019).  Lower new vehicle annual volume will trigger five significant aftermarket changes that will boost the volume of aftermarket products from 2022 through 2030. By increasing used vehicle prices and shifting miles to older vehicles, lower new vehicle sales will boost aftermarket product volume through 2030. An increase in the average age of vehicles and more older vehicles on the road, both resulting from lower new vehicle sales, will provide a tailwind for aftermarket product growth. Although there will be fewer vehicles in the repair-age sweet-spot between 2026 and 2030, this will create a mileage shift to older vehicles and an increase in the upper age boundary of the repair-age sweet-spot, which will be positive for aftermarket product growth Lower new vehicle sales will slow the growth of Electric Vehicles on the road, increasing the use of ICE vehicles and pumping up their aftermarket product volume.

      Years back it was common to perform oil changes every 3 to 5,000 miles, and we would see customers 4 to 5 times a year. Today, you are lucky if you see customers once a year for an oil change service. 
      So, what are you doing to maintain customers on a more consistent basis?

      The gang’s all here; we have the entire Aftermarket Radio Network together for an important episode inspired by the movie Moneyball. We all have experience with people who are not our top performers, but are we better to have them on the team than not? You know them; they are consistent, reliable, steady, and contributors. Are they worth replacing? Will they become the best or top performers, or do they help strengthen our overall performance? A great discussion among your peers.

      What REALLY contributes to production? Simpson Paradox Simon Sinec points out that Navy Seal teams value Trustworthiness far, far more than Performance.  VIDEO HERE  Tech productivity is one of the most important aspects of business, but how can these numbers skew what that employee is really doing (helping others, sharing duties outside of production, etc.) Are there some numbers or metrics that actually can look too good, which could cause an issue for growth or retention Numbers don’t lie, but sometimes can be misleading. Do your numbers match up with what you are trying to do with the business? You have to have your head up and eyes wide open to make sure you can identify the "doers" in your group.  Do you have a scorecard for success for your technicians? Pay plans; incentive greatness Who are your ‘support people' to contribute and make the whole picture better Culture is contagious Training when hiring- Weaknesses- be honest with eachother Fine balance- profitability aspect, you can’t have a shop full of unicorns Removing obstacles
