If you did decide to invest time and effort into after-sales marketing, would you know where to start?
Our extensive experience in these markets raises similar observations. Often, companies rely heavily on after-market profits to keep them "afloat" in times of hardship with core sales, since the aftermarket behavior is more robust than primary sales. However, when we look into the potential these companies have in these markets and the rate they are utilizing it, we usually find heaps of "money on the floor" i.e. easily accessible potential underutilized and lost.
Did you know that:
According to research done by Shell in the UK, a large dealership loses about 1M£ a year, simply from not tracking it’s customers maintenance schedules.
PROFIT - Spare part distribution is considerably more profitable than vehicle sales - After Sales contribute an average of 45% of the profit of automotive distributors. While these facts are well known, most companies spend 5 times more on vehicle marketing and planning than on the same activities in After Sales.
However, organizations that choose to pursue an After-sales strategy are faced with many challenges:
A complex market – Multiple channels, multiple products, sales are buffered by channels but driven by end-users
A variety of products – around 60,000 SKU per brand each one with different competition, consumption behavior and market potential
Global environment – After-market products in Thailand, quickly impact prices in Europe
Mass market with a decentralized distribution channel - No direct customer relationships
