Most of the SocialCRM program features are automated, but there are multiple things you can do to supercharge the effectiveness of your shop marketing efforts. Here are a five simple ways to get the most value from your SocialCRM service:

1. Activate your automated text messages:

  • Log into your SocialCRM Reporting Dashboard and turn on your pre- and post-visit automated text
  • Ask every customer for a valid cell phone number and/or verify the current one you have on file.

2. During your customer interactions:

  • Ask every customer for an email address and/or verify the current one you have on file.
  • Add a recommendation entry in Manager™ SE to cover any work that was not complete.
  • Let every customer know about the email and text communications being sent to them.
  • Remind every customer about their personal vehicle history website (ownerautosite.com).
  • Display the customer-facing items included in your SocialCRM Welcome kit.
  • Check for any new consumer review Star Notifications in Manager™ SE. This is a perfect time to thank your customer for their most recent review, and their loyalty at the front counter.
