iPhone and Android app tips for Shop owners and Managers
By advertising on the Oil Change apps we can help
Increase awareness and traffic to your shop
Decrease time between visits
Increase awareness of additional services
Allow customers to set their own service reminders to come back to YOUR STORE!!
Tips & Info:
Many shops are asking for in-store promotional material and Oil Change app Logos and links to the apple store for their own email marketing and websites. This will be very important when the new version comes available because of the customer reminder feature. When a customer selects a reminder, the app will reminder them to come back to YOUR store! If they don't know to use the app, it will just tell them it's time for your next oil change service. So tell you customers to use the app when they come in.
For those of you who have emailed me to ask for promotional materials, they will be mailed to you soon.
We would love for you to tell you customers to use the oil change app so just reply to this email and I'll send you an in-store shelf talker and window magnets and I'll put Logos and a link on the mybeepbeep website for you.
Here are a couple of things I want you to be aware of:
The "features and offers" text box is not only a great place to tell customers about your offers but also to tell customer about the services you offer or special training your techs receive. Tell them why they should come to you! Example: (We deliver quality and a friendly experience.) (Get a Free Car Wash with an Oil Change)
The "ad headline and details box" will be changing to accomodate the coupon page and coupon code feature. You will not have to have a coupon to use the the tracking though. Example: Ad Headline ($5 off and Oil Change and Details box (Get $5 off when you mention this app and coupon code)
The iPhone and Android versions of the Oil change app are here! We are very excited to show you and let you try the new features that will allow you to:
* Set up unique coupons with coupon codes set by you
* Track customer visits
* Ask them to come back to YOUR store when their oil change reminder is triggered
* Analytics to help measure your traffic and sales results
You will also see some changes to the website to help you get the most out of your listing including tutorials and help pages.
