A Sweetheart Deal For Your Car


Recommended Posts

Each year for Valentine’s Day, I send out an email blast to all local businesses, organizations and my customer base. This year the offering is a Synthetic Oil Change at a reduced price for one month only. The subject line for the email says: A Sweetheart Deal for Your Car! The catchy phrase grabs their attention and my response rate has been better than average. I have to believe it’s due to wording of the subject line. Many other people even comment that they saw the email. I have to be honest; I “borrowed” that phrase from the ad campaign that Auto Alert of CARQUEST has used in the past. (Auto Alert is a reminder and shop promotion company for shop owners, through CARQUEST Auto Parts)

 

Doing things a little different in your marketing makes you stand out from all the other traditional marketing and advertising we see. The public is bombarded each day, each hour of the day, with too many advertising messages. Be creative and think out of the box.

 

Happy Valentine’s Day!

      I will never forget the day when a customer, who didn't like the price, took cash out of his pocket, crumbled up the cash, and threw the money at me. 
      This customer clearly crossed the line, in my opinion. 
      Before I tell the rest of this "true" story, I would like to hear from you: How would you have handled this situation?

      Key Talking Points

      Having been a shop owner for 41 years, I have lived through many economic swings, both good and bad.  I can tell you that increases in prices, from gas to food to new car prices, can prove to be a good thing for auto repair shops. 
      People tend to tighten their belts during tough economic times, but also understand that they need their cars in the best shape they can be to save on fuel and save on costly breakdowns. 
      How can you help your customers save on fuel costs and focus on preventive maintenance?
