Vehicle Repairs & Maintenance
If you work in the Automotive Industry you know that many customers will shop around for the cheapest prices when it comes to repairs and servicing. Even long-standing "loyal" customers will compare your costs with those of your competitors. It's important then that you acquire many new customers in order to keep up a demand for your services.
Even if you are a self employed mobile mechanic, are you busy all of the time? Could you manage new business?
Generating regular repeat business and building loyalty becomes easier if you get to know your customers better and they get to know you. That's one of the major benefits of being a member of the Satachi Community.
