One recently posted business tidbit discussed how social media can be used to reach a repair shop’s target demographic. We spoke with Michael Crosson, an advertising and marketing exec who publishes SocialMediopolis and runs the largest group on LinkedIn for social media marketers (over 1.4 million members), who offered this advice:

“Localization of content and providing extended services are highly important. Can you pick up clients’ cars? Highlight it and show it. Make short videos about your shop and encourage customers to give recommendations. You should also look for PR opportunities that tie into the local community, such as donating services for cops or helping out those in distress.

“I would highly recommend using Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat even more than Facebook. They are great sources for new customers and referrals. Be VISUAL! Use lots of photos and short videos to show off your shop.”
