People love "Who done it" mysteries because they are intriguing, so why not use intrigue to promote services at your repair facility? Encouraging scheduled service, for example, is a good way to gain "A" customers who bring in their cars at regular intervals. Following are a few examples of how to promote scheduled service using the Car Care Council’s Service Interval Schedule and a little bit of intrigue:

It’s important to use the Car Care Council’s name in these promotions because studies show that consumers trust the council and appreciate the "Be Car Care Aware" consumer education campaign. In short, your affiliation with council programs brings credibility to your shop.
The council’s website features a number of other educational materials that also can be used as promotional items, including the Car Care Guide. To download the Service Interval Schedule, log on www.carcare.org/service_schedule.shtml. Find out more at www.carcare.org
