Growth hack your Bodyshop or SMART repair business by using other businesses as leverage for winning more jobs!
Customers often assume that whilst having work carried out related to their car, the business they're currently at, can carry out their bodywork too.
Oftentimes mechanics are asked, "Hey can you fix this dent too?". And it's not just mechanics who are asked this, it's other aspects of the motor trades too.
The problem with this is if the mechanic doesn't know anybody or doesn't have what they need to hand to pass the information on easily, this could be a missed opportunity for a body repairer.
So, make sure you head around your local area and find other trusted motor tradesmen or businesses, make friends with them (this can be done via LinkedIn and other social media platforms), so you can both work together and lock in that customer who wants more work done to their car.
Here is a list of people to reach out to:
- Tyre fitters
- Windscreen fitters
- Auto electricians
- Auto locksmiths
- PDR Technicians
- Alloy wheel refurb businesses
- Window tinters
- Vehicle wrappers
- Tuning places
- Remap specialists
- Vehicle upholsters
There are also mobile guys relevant to the above businesses too, so don't forget them!
Remember, all it takes is one popular business to help another.
