NO MORE BLINDSPOTS IN THE ROAD!

What’s Your Plan?

Consolidators are in your market now or they’ve been researching your market to see where to land. Right now they are doing their due process to see if it makes sense to “put up a shop” just down the street from yours. They are literally everywhere we turn.

A 2018 article in Fender Bender mentioned that the consolidators growth strategy will be to grow larger at a faster rate.

What is your strategy to compete or keep them out of your market altogether?

WHAT MAKES A GOOD CONSOLIDATOR MARKET?

When a consolidator tries to determine their next market to enter, there are several factors they look at:

  • Population
  • Number of cars and drivers
  • The age of drivers
  • Income of each area
  • Insurance & claim statistics
  • How many other auto body shops are already there

They look at the “digital footprint” of local shops to see if any are dominating in search, social media, and reviews.

After keying in on weaknesses, they determine if they can make a profit, then they’re ready to break ground.

KEEP YOUR BRAND IDENTITY! 

Keep your own brand, identity, and market share. Become known in your community by EVERYONE! Consolidators want an area they can totally take over. Don’t make it easy for them.

Are you getting your name out in the market? We can’t guarantee you anything, but we can assure you one thing… Paying a “local SEO guy” a few hundred dollars a month isn’t going to do anything other than lose a few hundred dollars a month. We have evaluated hundreds of websites over the last 7 years and have determined the average body shop is not prepared for the digital onslaught of consolidators.

Combine a weak website structure, poor social media engagement, poor reputation management, and a limited amount of reviews from your raving fans, and the consolidators will take over quickly.

In this day and age of self-serve convenience, people “just want their car fixed.” Where do you think they’ll go?

They turn to their digital device and “search” for a body shop’s SERVICESNOT the Body Shop Name
