Back to School
Social platforms are where teachers, students, and parents research products, compare prices, find recommendations, and look for inspiration. Back to school shopping isn’t just for school supplies and clothes. You need to make sure your vehicle is running properly too. Follow these tips to make the most out of this back to school season.
Timing is Everything
Back to school shopping starts earlier and earlier each year. However, according to Bing, shopping tends to peak around three weeks to one month prior to school starting then picks up again for the last minute shoppers one week before. August is the perfect time to start your social media campaign.
Auto Shops and Back to School
How do you relate your automotive shop to the back to school season? Easy; teachers, students, and parents need to be able to get to class on time. They need their vehicle in top condition to make that happen. That’s where your shop comes in. Provide them with the service and information they need to make it to school safely and on time.
Back to School Deals
Back to School shopping means finding the best deals out there. That doesn’t stop with clothing deals. You can offer any special from an oil change coupon to student, faculty, and staff discounts. Promote your deals by sharing your coupons on social media, encouraging your customers to get their vehicle serviced or to get new tires so they’re 100% ready to take on the school year!
Social media is an invaluable part of any back to school marketing strategy. Different platforms allow for organic brand building and the attraction of new and returning customers. Use these tips to help your shop get ready for the new school year.
