As a garage business owner, getting more customers to your garage should be one of the most important goals on your to-do list. With the increase in vehicle sales in the past few years, there is considerable scope for garage businesses to grow and achieve exceptional results.
However, an increase in demand for garage repair professionals does not automatically help you beat your competition and get more customers. To grab your potential customers’ attention and to make sure they choose you over your competitors, you need to put in a little extra effort.
How? That’s exactly what we are here to tell you.
In today’s competitive world, the customer is king and with the increase in digitalisation, you can use many, varied techniques to target your customers and grow your business.
In this article, we share a few simple tips to get more customers to your garage and grow your business revenue.
We hope if you’re reading this that you’ve taken the right steps to getting your garage set up online, however, if not, you’re being left behind by your competitors.
To allow you to reach the greatest audience possible and beat your competition you need to set up your online website as soon as possible.
If you already have a website, then we suggest that you work on upgrading it by constantly adding new information and content, such as blogs, to the website. Regularly updating new info and case studies keep your website interactive and engaging.
However, not enough to simply have a website, you’ll want to make sure you’re marketing it, too! With effective marketing, your website becomes the one that customers see when they’re searching for a garage.
Whilst you may feel it’s overkill, integrating a garage management system into your garage processes could be one of the most profitable decisions you make. Not just a way to monitor everything that happens in your garage, it’s also a great way to boost revenue.
By integrating our GMS into your website, you allow customers to view available slots for repairs and book appointments online.
Moreover, with TechMan’s extensive features, your customers can get appointment reminders, digital quotes, and so much more.
Not only does this make your job easier and more efficient, but also gives your customers an experience that they won’t forget.
Without adequate advertising, even with the best reputation imaginable, it’s unlikely you’re going to grow as quickly as you want to.
While as a local garage, you may not need to publish full-fledged countrywide ad campaigns to promote your business, you should absolutely be pushing within your local area.
This can be offline (such as posters, flyers, billboards or local radio) or online (including, social media, paid ads and much more).
If all this sounds like too much effort, there’s no shame in starting small and building up. Rome wasn’t built in a day and doing something small, consistently, will likely reap much greater rewards than a one off, grand gesture. That said, we’d always recommend speaking with an expert!
While there are dozens of ways to market your garage in today’s world, there is still nothing more concrete and reliable than word-of-mouth marketing.
People may not trust advertising as much as they would trust the word of someone they personally know.
That’s why, by providing the best customer service, you encourage your current customers to spread the word about your garage. This way you get more loyal customers that will stay with you for a long time to come.
