The Automotive Service Association (ASA) has created a significant opportunity for automotive repair professionals to learn about adapting their current business model to prepare for the future.
As the CARS@AAPEX show approaches, former ASA Chairman Donny Seyfer, AMAM, co-owner of Seyfer Automotive in Wheat Ridge, Colo., and Bob Greenwood, AAM, president and CEO of the Automotive Aftermarket E-Learning Centre Ltd. in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, will get out in front of this highly anticipated event by participating in an Automotive Aftermarket Town Hall Academy podcast Sept. 15.
Titled “The Competition You Didn’t See Coming: What Does It Take to Own Your Customer?,” the discussion will be moderated by Carm Capriotto, owner of Remarkable Results Radio, and will focus on the secrets of constructing a business plan for several years out.
“In baseball,” said Seyfer, “they call that tactic ‘long ball.’ There is good business sense to this approach, and if independent repairers are not adapting now, they stand to lose a significant part of their market share.
“We don’t want that to happen,” he continued. “So we’ve done extensive research and are going to tell listeners how to become an industry analyst and adapt their business model in ways that put them in the best possible position for the future.”
The Town Hall podcast is scheduled for noon (EDT) on Friday, Sept. 15. For more information, go to http://remarkableresults.biz/academylive/.
