Automotive Jobs & HR Site

The estimated completion date for our automotive-specific Job and HR hub is July 1st, 2022. We are just working through the last bit of details on the development of the job hub and once complete, we then need to go bring it to market on "trial" to work out any kinks, if any. Once everything is smooth, we will launch to the public to provide a solution to one of our industry's biggest issues.

Automotive Marketplace

Technically, YES! Although...we do have an approval process and specific criteria that we follow as we won't just list anyone or anything on our marketplace.

Sales & Marketing Strategy

An average shop should be committing to at least 3-5% of its operating expenses on local marketing and local relationship building. Independent, Non-DRP Facilities should be contributing 10%+ to their brand.

Social Media Marketing

Looking to get started on your Social Media Journey but not sure where to begin? We suggest starting with these 8 Easy Steps!
  • Step 1: Determine Approach
    • Where do you want your brand to show up?
    • The more you show up, the better it is!
    • But each platform IS different and requires a different level of time and effort.
    • So, which platform(s) do you choose?
 
  • Step 2: Study Platform
    • What is the purpose of the platform?
    • What are the benefits?
    • When are the best times to post?
    • What are the best strategies?
    • What are ways to attract new customers and get organic followers?
    • What are the best-paid advertisement strategies?
    • What does the algorithm focus on?
 
  • Step 3: Make a CONSISTENT Plan
    • Start with a plan
    • How many times per week do you want to post?
    • What is the value that you’d like to provide to your customers?
    • REMEMBER 95% Value, 5% Sales!
    • Then post consistently on those dates and those times!
 
  • Step 4: Know your audience- Who is your target and demographics?
    • Understanding the customer and your local market…What do they want to see on social media?
 
  • Step 5: Give VALUE
    • Posting vehicles every day on your Social Media is NOT providing your customers with value. Put yourself in a customer's position for just a moment, what do you think they see when they look at this? What value would this provide a customer?Instead, you can share things that are educational, entertaining, or interesting. 
  • Step 6: Build relationships
    • Ask Questions.
    • Comment and engage with their posts, get to know them!
    • ALWAYS Respond back. If someone took the time to write on your page, write them back.
 
  • Step 7: Mix up your formats
    • Try different things!
      • Images/Videos/Text/Stories/Reels/Polls/Live Events
      • Tag People/Tag Businesses
      • Ask for Recommendations
      • Ask a Question
      • Create Contests
      • GIF’s
      • Share URL’s/Links
 
  • Step 8: Measure your RESULTS!
    • How do you know if what your doing is working? We suggest tracking your growth and engagement on a month-to-month basis. You need to know if you’re continuously improving in order for you to grow.
