Pep Boys Selling To Investment Firm


Recommended Posts

I find it real interesting that the 100 year old company Pep Boys is selling to the investment firm, Gores Group. What’s more interesting is that Pep Boys will no longer be a publicly traded company and will become a privately held company. As the dust settles, the reasons will be reveals and perhaps lessons can be learned from this story.

      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.

      Did you know the data portion of Digital Vehicle Inspections is the least important piece of the process? It's about communication with the customer and using DVI as a tool to drive revenue. Craig O’Neill, VP of Training, Autotextme.com. Listen to Craig’s previous episodes HERE  Key Talking Points
      DVI is a data collection tool- ‘digital’ is the mode, and the data is the least important piece; it’s about the customers that are driving the car that is the most important part. What is their use of the vehicle?  What is your communication training for advisors? Level 1 is basic customer information, Level 2 is transactional data about the vehicle, Level 3 is relationship building with listening and asking open-ended questions.  Failure- processes and procedures, top-down support, data DVI as a part of your CRM (Client Relations Management)- CRM has three main components, orientation, information (subject to availability, quality, depth ... this is where DVI's are in this format, and configuration (structures incentives and controls) Performing inspections is NOT what drives more revenue. 300% rule- 100% of vehicles get inspected, 100% of the findings get estimated, 100% of estimated items get presented to the customer

      I was speaking with a few shop owners last week at the Elite Fly with the Eagles conference. They were telling me that they are down a technician, and while the other techs are pitching in and doing a great job at getting the work done, one of their fears is tech burnout.
      I guess being busy is a blessing, but at what cost?  What are you seeing at your shops?  Is tech burnout a real issue?
