With over 10 years of posting on behalf of our clients, Optima Automotive has seen it all. In the hustle and bustle of running a body shop, it’s easy to overlook the real purpose of social media. Too often, we’re shouting about our achievements and milestones into a void, forgetting the core essence of these platforms.
Remember, the average person only requires collision repair services once every seven years or so. So how do you ensure your brand stays top-of-mind, year after year? The key is engaging content that adds value to your followers’ lives, reminding them subtly of your expertise and availability.
This strategy involves an array of post types like local events, car care tips, community service participation, and of course, a measured amount of your achievements and testimonials. It’s a balancing act between keeping followers entertained and subtly reminding them about your services.

Navigating the digital landscape can seem like a maze, especially when you’re striving to stand out in the crowded collision repair industry. However, in this digital age, social media is a game changer, and here’s why:
1. Consistent Brand Awareness
Your potential clients might only think about collision repair once every seven years, but that doesn’t mean they should forget you exist in between. Social media is your continuous digital billboard, reminding them of your existence and excellence regularly.
2. Engagement & Trust Building
People don’t just buy services; they buy relationships, trust, and stories. By showcasing community service efforts, sharing car care tips, or even celebrating local events, you position your brand as a community pillar – not just another body shop.
3. Immediate Feedback & Reviews
Nothing speaks louder than customer testimonials. But that doesn’t mean it should be all that you post. With Optima Automotive’s approach, we ensure that your testimonials don’t overshadow the content, but integrate seamlessly. This allows potential clients to witness firsthand the quality of your service.
4. Stay Ahead of the Competition
While many shops are stuck showcasing endless before-and-after photos, arguing with insurers, or not posting at all, your brand could be weaving a narrative. Showcasing stories of your team, your community involvement, and your commitment to excellence sets you apart.
5. ROI in the Long Run
After thousands and thousands of posts for our clients, we’ve observed firsthand the compounded effect of consistent, valuable content. Over time, this not only enhances brand loyalty but ensures that when someone does need a repair, your brand is top of mind.
Managing all of this might sound daunting, especially with the day-to-day demands of running a body shop. That’s where Optima Automotive steps in. For just a $695 setup and $495 monthly, we handle the weight of your social media presence. We don’t just manage your platforms, we become your digital voice, engaging with your followers while strategically keeping your brand in their line of sight.
