As a small business owner, one of the most important jobs you’ll have is getting the word out about your goods or services. This is true of a Big O tire shop franchise, too. Luckily, you can count on plenty of our expert in-house national and regional marketing to help you reach your best customers, letting them know all about your expert tire and auto care services. Having said that, it’ll be up to you to initiate and manage local marketing efforts that let your community know you’re ready to keep its cars in great shape! Read on to learn about some smart ways to do that.

#1 Network with Your Community

Nothing beats the power of networking, and there is no better place to do that than at your local Chamber of Commerce. These organizations provide excellent regular opportunities to meet new faces, chat with community members, and converse with other business owners.

Meeting members of your community, sharing stories and experiences with them, and letting them know you’re there to provide expert automotive care goes a long way toward growing your tire shop franchise.

Generally speaking, Chambers help promote the interests of local business communities, boosting their visibility and credibility and helping small business owners increase sales.

Chambers also frequently offer members free or discounted marketing services, access to advice from small business experts, and other resources not otherwise available, making your membership an even smarter move.

#2 Become a Sponsor to Support Your Community

Community involvement will go a long way toward marketing a franchise and seeing its growth, and sponsorships are a terrific way to get involved! Sponsoring local food drives, art walks, kids’ sports teams, and more are great ways to get the word out about your franchise while at the same time making meaningful contributions to your city or town. Sponsoring an event or a team confirms your commitment to your community and positions you as a leader in it — all good ways to reinforce the value of what it is you have to offer.

#3 Harness the Power of Social Media

Who doesn’t know about Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other huge social media platforms? Today an astounding 36.8% (1) of the world’s population uses Facebook to connect with others, to keep up on news, or to learn more about products and services. In fact, it’s estimated that there are 4.7 billion social media users across the globe, so it doesn’t take much to realize the potential of using it as a marketing tool.

As a Big O Tires franchisee, you can harness the power of social media to reach your best customers and let them know all about your suite of services and what makes you the go-to choice for expert car care. You can take out Facebook ads, too, that target a specific audience. If you don’t have time to manage these platforms yourself, consider hiring someone who does. It will be well worth the investment.

#4 Focus on the Customer

There are lots of smart ways to market a franchise, and no matter what industry you’re in, one of the very best ways to do so is to focus on customer service. It’s essential to your success, and, in fact, it may be the single most important contributor to it. Think about it: when was the last time you gave your business to one with bad online reviews or that your friends and neighbors couldn’t recommend? The power of positive word of mouth is immeasurable, and it starts by paying close attention to the customer experience.

The great thing is, paying close attention to customer service costs you nothing! When your customers are happy with the level of service they’re receiving, they share their positive experiences with others, which helps to grow your franchise. It’s an investment in your time, energy, and attention that pays back in a big way!
