NADA Webinar
With over 3 million car sales lost in the last 3 months, it’s time to prepare your dealership for any economic crisis by unleashing the potential of your fixed ops department.

Growing Your Fixed Ops Revenue Using Your Dealer Website

Featuring

NADA and Revolution Parts

Authored by Katie Gettinger and the Revolution Parts team

The automotive industry has been completely shaken by the recent economic downturn. According to a study conducted by Automotive News, almost 70% of dealers felt like they were not at all prepared to respond to the changes brought on by COVID-19. It’s time to prepare your dealership for any economic crisis by investing in the revenue generator that is your fixed ops department.

In just 3 months, over 3 million individual new car sales have been lost due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Unfortunately, that won’t be the end of it. The biggest challenge of rebounding from this loss will be the increased financial burden customers will have to overcome. This means they still won’t be buying cars at a “normal” volume for months to come.

Creating the New Normal in Fixed Operations Webinar

Presented by:
Randy McCleskey  |  Dealership Management Consultant  |  NADA
Russell Hill  |  Managing Partner  | FixedOPS Marketing

Tuesday, May 19 |  1pm-2pm ET

The COVID-19 pandemic has really made it difficult for dealerships this year. Sales departments are closed, but service centers remain open. In this webinar we’ll discuss how dealerships can maximize their service department revenue during these uncertain times. 
 
Join Randy McCleskey, NADA 20 Group Dealership Management Consultant, and Russell Hill, a 30-year veteran in the automotive industry, as they discuss what service departments can do to thrive during these questionable times.  

Watch the archived webinar from the NADA.

While customers might not be buying cars when they’re in a financial crunch, they will pay to make sure the car they’re driving stays that way. Customers always need their parts and service departments, and they’ll be looking online to see what dealer will offer them the best bang for their buck.

So, how can you use the website you have right now to start growing your fixed ops revenue? By improving how you market your service department and sell parts to your customers:

Get More Customers into Your Service Drive

Service departments are important now more than ever. Any oil changes or service warnings customers might’ve been neglecting for the last few months are ticking time bombs. Getting those valuable customers into your service drive is crucial to growing your fixed ops revenue. In order to do that, you’ve got to listen to your customer’s needs.

TRUST

Customers are looking for a transparent and trustworthy customer experience, but they’re also looking for a deal. Sure, you probably have a “Service Specials” page on your dealer website. How user-friendly is it? If your customers can’t find the deals or don’t understand what they’re looking at, they’ll move on.

So, How Do You Fix It?

By offering customers affordable, effective, and modern coupons, you’ll be able to effectively capitalize on services. For example, FixedOPS Marketing specializes in customer-focused service specials and coupons. They make sure your Service Specials page attracts new customers, uses marketing best practices, and reclaims previous customers lost to the competition. In fact, they offer six ways to convert customers using their service specials videos.

These coupons and videos live directly on your Service Specials page. Customers visiting your website will be able to find them without ever having to leave your dealer site. Get more customers into your service drive with an improved customer experience and better deals that will keep them coming back without breaking the budget.

Sell More Parts and Accessories

Let’s be real. Your customers hate using the parts form that lives on your website. It’s outdated, confusing, and unresponsive, making it a chore for both you and your customer to use it. The average conversion rate for this form is only 5%. That means out of 20 customers that visit the form, only 1 person is filling it out. 

Customers expect instant gratification with minimal interaction, especially after spending the last few months shopping online for everything. They’ll search for a solution to get the parts they need before picking up a phone to call and order, but a complicated parts form will stop the average customer in their tracks. 

So, what’s it costing your dealership? If the average online order value is about $180 and you’re missing 20 orders a week, that’s a lot of potential revenue lost.

You can’t grow your fixed ops revenue when your parts form is losing you money.

So, How Do You Fix It?

While customer expectations have evolved, so has technology. By simplifying the way your customers order parts, you’ll waste less time, prevent lost sales, and keep customers coming back to buy even more. Before rushing to build a new parts form from scratch, let’s talk about an affordable solution: the RevolutionParts’ Storefront Plugin.
