It’s a lovely time to be a Texan.
School is out and road trips are IN.
Thankfully, Texans have a lot of ground to drive on their exploration, and we’ve got a good portion of it covered if they need a repair on the open road. Our business is all about connections. Allowing customers to connect from Point A to Point B is our priority, but our connections to customers strengthen our business as well.
Whether the customer is from around here or three states over, we want to be the repair they can turn to while traveling our great state. Customers turn to reviews to help them decide what body shop to go to, especially if they’re out-of-towners. The more reviews we get, the more confidence our customer will have bringing their car into our shop.
One of the ways we can do that is by encouraging our customers to write honest (albeit, glowing?) reviews on our Yelp, Google, and Facebook pages. When working with a customer, tell them we’d love to hear their feedback online. Not only does this help new customers connect with us, but it allows us to better connect with our customer’s experiences to better help them get back on the road.
AMM had fun shooting a Mother’s Day campaign for the month of May, giving away a 4K TV (thanks to Covert Auto Group!) to one lucky social media follower. Desirae Acosta and her son, Grayson, starred in videos and photos for AMM’s social.
Our Easter Egg drawing winner received lunch from Olive Garden for his State Farm team. Congratulations, Juan Hernandez!
