New SCRS Member Benefit to Help Shops Manage Social Media

Aware of the upside social media marketing can bring to a collision repair business, the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) announced its newest member benefit: social media management services offered at a preferred rate. Made available through an agreement with Admin Concepts, Inc. – marketing specialists with over 10 years of experience serving the collision repair industry – the comprehensive program makes it possible for even the busiest repairers to tap into the marketing power of social media.

"Many repairers want to market themselves through social media websites, but they just don’t have the time or expertise to do so," said Jordan Hendler, president of Admin Concepts, Inc. "That’s okay – we do all the work for them so they can get started using these low-cost, individualized sales and marketing outlets right away. We walk them through the process so they are comfortable from the minute they sign up."

Subscribers gain access to a complete program with a wide range of services, which makes the package especially valuable. Not only will Admin Concepts set up and integrate the shop’s current website with Facebook and Twitter, and it will provide:

• 500 business cards branded with the shop’s name that promote the shop’s presence on Facebook and Twitter

• A promotional Lucite plaque, suitable for display in the lobby of a shop

• A marketing materials packet that orients users to Facebook and Twitter and gives pointers on how to maximize the opportunities they can bring to a collision repair business

• Consulting services to help maximize the marketing impact of shop’s current Web presence

"This exciting service reflects the SCRS’ ongoing commitment to providing members technology they can leverage to gain an edge in the marketplace," said SCRS Executive Director Aaron Schulenburg. "The comprehensiveness of the program coupled with the attractive rate at which it is being offered present a rare opportunity for our members to take advantage of 21st-century sales and marketing tools. Admin Concepts brings to the table a unique combination of Internet and collision repair expertise, and we are happy to be aligned with them as a partner."
