In today’s competitive market, shops will commonly use heavy discounting on certain services like oil changes to attract and retain customers to their shop.  But how receptive are these customers to regular preventive maintenance or even upsells? Did you know that promoting premium offerings and trusted brands can not only help attract new customers but also increase average repair orders? Through our data, we’ve seen that customers who buy premium motor oils spend up to 25% more on their tickets because they value vehicle maintenance.

We are also seeing that up to 79% of customers want to book appointments online.  While shops have historically relied on physical signage to promote premium brands at their shop, consumers' buying behaviors are changing and they want to use technology to engage with shops.  That’s where digital tools like on-line scheduling and marketing platforms can help you target and attract top-tier customers with premium brands.
