BodyShopMedia.com Urges Body Shops to Use Power of Social Media

Website created anonymously hopes to link shops through Twitter and Facebook to more openly discuss issues.

It wasn’t long ago that an anonymous body shop owner created StopDRP.com to educate consumers on steering, appraisal clauses and diminished value. Now, another anonymous shop owner has created BodyShopMedia.com, urging collision repairers to use the power of social media (especially Twitter) to communicate with one another and unite over issues such as PartsTrader and not getting paid for procedures necessary to return vehicles to their previous condition.

A statement on the homepage of the website states:

“We are a private firm looking out for the collision industry. We are connecting body shops across the U.S. to see what everybody else has to say. This blog is for all of us to share our opinions and thoughts. As cars get more technical in the industry, we can share advice and ideas with each other. We hope you make friends on here and also get some good ideas.”

The site has a “Shop of the Month” contest where the winner is the shop with the best tweet. It also has a link to StopDRP.com and a video showing tips and tricks when using certain collision products. There is also a video of George Avery explaining why State Farm created PartsTrader.
