Advice for Auto Dealerships Facing Recalls

In the past few years, almost every auto manufacturer has announced some kind of recall for its vehicles. Your dealership needs to have a social media plan in place to minimize damage from the bad news and be proactive about fixing the problem. You can take advantage of social media to address the issue.

First, create a custom tab on your Facebook page about the recall. Talk about the qualifications of your service department and provide a graphic people can click to schedule an appointment.

Next, talk about it on social pages like Twitter and Facebook (including both business and personal pages). Let customers know that you're ready to schedule appointments for them to bring in vehicles for inspection and repair. Give them a phone number, email address, and link to a web contact form to provide as many options as possible.

Finally, make a plan to talk about the integrity of whatever vehicle is under a recall. Post video and text testimonials talking about reliability and also the ease of repair for people who did experience problems.

When you are proactive about addressing a recall, people will see that your dealership is honest about problems while providing a path to solve them. Social media helps auto dealers like you to reach people in your network of customers and encourage them to come back to you for service.
