Marketing Company


Recommended Posts

Has anyone used a company called AutoRepairMoney.com and their marketing called Auto Repair Dollars? Customers would buy coupons with discounts to be used at your shop. It is no cost to the shop other than the discounts you would be giving. Just wondering if anyone has heard of them or used them and your exprience with them.

Hereis the person and information for the website registration:

I also found him on Linkedin, http://www.linkedin.com/pub/sheldon-goldman/13/62/5B4

 

The website is not a working website and the contact link goes to a generic email, all good reasons to be suspicious... good luck!

I don't like to make quick decisions without knowing what im getting myself into. Sales people always try to get you to do it now and I don't roll that way. AAA is endorsing this company and it still made me feel uncomfotable. There was no cost to me other than dicounted repair work. I talked to another local AAA shop and he felt the same as myself. It looks like we're all on the same page on this. Thanks for your responses.

The website, as far as it went worked fine for me. when I entered a zip code it entered a circular argument where it kept returning to the "Enter Zip Code" screen. I assume that is becaase there are no participating shops in those zip codes, but it owuld be nice to be told so instead of it looking like it doesn't work. And a few sample zip codes for ASO members to play with would be nice. I was put off by the discounts of 25-30% though. If I want to cut my own throat there are ways locally to do that.

When you look at the cost of generating a new lead, "loss leader" advertising can sometimes be a good boost to business. But the big "IF" in the equation is the quality of the lead that gets generated. It is'nt rocket science that low price leaders can bring in volume with right offer, the question is how much can you upsell or retain? Have a great weekend!

We are still tweaking the website, and are only starting our program in Northern New Jersey with the AAA North Jersey club. Put in zip code 07470 if you want to see the whole site. As for cost, we are prepared to show every shop that not only is this cheaper than what your cost of advertiisng is now, but it brings guaranteed qualified buyers not leads or shoppers with no risky advertisng costs to the shop, a win -win win. Call me if you are interested 805-708-5333 or [email protected]. to re-iterate, since you pay us nothing and get extra business on our advertising dollars, you have nothing to lose by contacting us. We do not ask for any money or long term commitments. Don't be put off by the discounts, as they actually work out to be a much cheaper cost for getting a new customer, and we can show you why. Thanks for your interest

      I recently spoke with a friend of mine who owns a large general repair shop in the Midwest. His father founded the business in 1975. He was telling me that although he’s busy, he’s also very frustrated. When I probed him more about his frustrations, he said that it’s hard to find qualified technicians. My friend employs four technicians and is looking to hire two more. I then asked him, “How long does a technician last working for you.” He looked puzzled and replied, “I never really thought about that, but I can tell that except for one tech, most technicians don’t last working for me longer than a few years.”
      Judging from personal experience as a shop owner and from what I know about the auto repair industry, I can tell you that other than a few exceptions, the turnover rate for technicians in our industry is too high. This makes me think, do we have a technician shortage or a retention problem? Have we done the best we can over the decades to provide great pay plans, benefits packages, great work environments, and the right culture to ensure that the techs we have stay with us?
      Finding and hiring qualified automotive technicians is not a new phenomenon. This problem has been around for as long as I can remember. While we do need to attract people to our industry and provide the necessary training and mentorship, we also need to focus on retention. Having a revolving door and needing to hire techs every few years or so costs your company money. Big money! And that revolving door may be a sign of an even bigger issue: poor leadership, and poor employee management skills.
      Here’s one more thing to consider, for the most part, technicians don’t leave one job to start a new career, they leave one shop as a technician to become a technician at another shop. The reasons why they leave can be debated, but there is one fact that we cannot deny, people don’t quit the company they work for, they usually leave because of the boss or manager they work for.
      Put yourselves in the shoes of your employees. Do you have a workplace that communicates, “We appreciate you and want you to stay!”
