How To Sell Leads To Car Repair Shop?
Go to a parking lot
The very first thing that you need to do is go to a parking lot. From the parking lot you need to look around and see which cars would need repair. These cars are the ones that have dents, scratches, or any messed up visual parts. After you identify these cars, you need to write down or take a picture of their license plate number.
Get cars information
After you get home from the parking lot, you need to go on a website that will give you information after you enter the license plate number for a car. The information that you need is their name, phone number and if you can find it, their email address. Once you get this information make sure to save it in a nice excel sheet.
Contact One Car Repair Shop
The last thing that you need to do is contact car repair shops in your city. When you contact them, you need to let them know that you have a bunch of leads for cars that need repair. Let them know that you have their name, phone number, and email address. You can tell them that you will sell the full list to them for a certain amount of money. Or you can even do a commission-based where if that car comes to get repaired at their shop, they will pay you a percentage of the money they make from it. For me, I like to get my money up front and I don’t want to worry about percentage and getting paid later.
After you sell the list to one car repair shop, you can sell that list again to another car repair shop. When one of the shops calls everybody on the list, some people might not want to get their car repaired there. So when you give that list to another shop and they call the same people, the people that did not want to go to the other shop may want to go to this one. So you can sell that same list over and over again for a few weeks. After a few weeks, the list might get outdated as some of the cars may be getting repaired or already been repaired.
