Why Make Follow Up Phone Calls?

Recommended Posts

Why Make Follow Up Phone Calls?

 

If you are not making follow up phone calls to your customers, you are missing out on a great opportunity to reinforce your culture and brand to your customers. Making follow up calls tells them you care, it builds relationships. It also tells your customers you understand that the relationship you have with your customers does not end when they drive away from your shop.

 

Create a script and decide who will be called. Make this a collective effort with everyone who will be making phone calls. In my shop we make all calls within 72 hours. We don’t call each customer. We call all first-time customers, customer that just had a substantial amount of work done and customers that returned with an issue about work previously done. The person making the call is usually the service advisor who worked with the customer on a particular job.

 

Remember, every point of contact with a customer is an opportunity to make a positive impression with your customer and promote the culture of your company. When people know you care, a relationship is created. And the more relationships you create, the stronger your company.

      In my 40 years as a shop owner, I have battled the age old dilemma: Is it my car count, my customer count or some other reason why some weeks I find it hard to hit my sales goal.  
      It always comes down to production.  Now that's really simplifying it, I know.   But, when you look at the numbers, with the right jobs and a balanced schedule, the ARO goes way up and car counts become not as important as we thought. 
      Another thing to consider, this is not 1995. Cars do not come in 5 to 6 times a year for an Oil Change Service.   You are lucky to see some customers every 10,000 miles as they wait for that Oil Change Percentage light on their dashboard to tell them...NOW IT"S OK TO GO TO YOUR REPAIR SHOP. Isn't it funny how so many people will listen to the dash board light, and not you!
      Anyway, what are your thoughts.  How do you reach your weekly sales goals and what KPI's are important to you?

      Hello all,
       
      We have a rather small waiting room and have removed a few chairs to aid in social distancing (we now have only 4 chairs total). I wanted to know if your shop is requiring customers to wear a mask while they are inside the waiting area?  How is your experience? Do you have a sign up on the front door stating they must wear a mask?
       
      Stay safe and healthy!
