ODESSA, Del., Oct. 10, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — AutoAwards, a leader in loyalty marketing for auto dealerships, realizes sales are extremely competitive and difficult at times. Starting a rewards program can help auto dealerships overcome weak sales. AutoAwards has proven solutions to help dealerships increase sales performance across all departments. With AutoAwards’ 30+ years of experience implementing rewards and Prepaid Maintenance programs for dealerships, we have a proven track record of boosting Finance & Insurance (F&I) sales.
All too often, F&I is left out when it comes to dealership loyalty programs. Within some dealerships, there is a distinct separation between the sales department, service department, and F&I. Their goals can even seem at odds with each other at times. That division is both unnecessary and counterproductive. With AutoAwards, the auto dealership rewards program increases sales activities across all departments.
Why Start a Loyalty Rewards Program?
A rewards program helps auto dealerships gain new customers and keep existing customers happy. A rewards program assists dealerships by creating multichannel loyalty. A customer earns rewards to use towards gift certificates, discounts on services and parts and free car washes or tire rotations. The benefits of starting a rewards program include building loyalty with customers, encouraging brand recognition and including the community.
Why Start a Dealership Prepaid Maintenance Program
A prepaid maintenance program for dealerships provides an advantage over competitors with customer retention. Vehicle owners pre-buy the program to get regular maintenance for their vehicle. A Prepaid Maintenance Program keeps customers coming back to the dealership through the service department. The key benefit of a Prepaid Maintenance program is to establish a long-term connection with the customer.
Additional benefits for customers include:
- Keeping a routine with regularly scheduled maintenance
- Planning to get service to avoid serious issues with their vehicle
- Getting a discounted plan to save money
When combined with a rewards program, the customer earns points nearly every time they visit. AutoAwards helps dealerships develop custom dealership maintenance programs that F&I can sell and award customers with bonus points.
A rewards program will help your dealership to:
- Close deals
- Lock in vehicle maintenance and service with customers
- Drive new sales
- Generate F&I profits
