A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…
Tire companies used phone books and flyers around town to bring customers into their local tire stores. They used radio announcements, pop-up ads on websites, direct mailers, and more!
Well guess what… if you’re interested in bringing your tire company to the next level; you have to become a social machine! Now we’re not talking about the kind of machines you use in your shops to change tires, we’re talking about the machine you envision your company being.
Think of the Internet as just one BIG social network. There are literally millions of websites out there that allow all the millions of people online, to share their experiences, their stories, their thoughts, images, complaints, reviews, and more. Wouldn’t it be nice to have all those millions of people start sharing things about your tire company?
Of course the answer is YES! We all want to sell more tires and bring in more vehicles to service, but there is a right way to do it, and a wrong way. We’re here to show you the right way to utilize social media and sharing to bring potential customers to your website, and into your door.
Social Media Marketing is a well known term nowadays, and there are hundreds of websites that online marketers use to share information about a tire store. Things like promoting an auto repair service, tire coupons and even giveaways. The problem most business owners don’t seem to understand, is advertising a business is not like how it used to be. We don’t go onto Twitter and let the world know your company has a bunch of Goodyear Tires in stock. We go onto Twitter and let the world know that you’re the owner, and you just had a delivery of Goodyear Tires unloaded at your store.
People want to know what your doing, who you are, things that are happening, events, and ideas. Not that your tires are on sale. So to help everyone out, the marketing team over at TCS (Tire Company Solutions) has put together a fun whiteboard image explaining a few tips on how to properly post or share on a few socially oriented websites.
