Auto Businesses: Drive More Sales With a Local Deal

Your customers may have done a lot less driving than they normally would have over the past several months due to shelter-in-place orders, but with things slowly opening back up, more people are ready to get back in their cars.

Help your customers get back on the road – and drive more business to your shop – with a Local Deal inspired by other businesses like yours:

1. Offer a “buy-one-get-one” deal on a recurring service.
Do you offer a service that customers will need regularly, or even periodically, like car washes or oil changes? Allow customers to purchase a full-price service – and get their next for free! Not only does this provide value to your customers, it encourages them to continue to use your business for their needs.

3. Give a fixed-price discount on an essential service.
Services like oil changes and repairs can’t wait. A fixed-price discount on a limited number of essential services may be just what it takes for a customer to choose you over a competitor. Don’t forget to mention the health and safety precautions you’re taking to keep both customers and employees safe during the coronavirus pandemic.
