1. Setup your Company Profile across all social directories - Facebook, Google, Yelp, Trip Advisor
Outside of your website, customers will want to do research on your company to make sure you are legitimate - this is all about building trust. Create business profiles across all major social platforms such as Facebook, Google, Yelp, Trip Advisor - it's important to add your logo, business profile, and company website.
2. Add reviews to your business social directories
If you're just getting started you make ask yourself - how can I get reviews if I don't have any customers? Start with close friends and family that you have given rides to and ask them to post reviews across all your social platforms - Facebook, Google, Yelp, Trip Advisor, etc. This is very important to build credibility with future customers. Your goal? Get 10 reviews from friend and family to boost your business credibility.
3. Join social groups with other operators and network!
There are a variety of transportation groups that you can join to meet other operators, network, and increase your exposure for new affiliate work. Here are different groups that are free to join:
Once you join the group - introduce yourself - where are you from, vehicle(s) you own, and how they can contact you.
4. Join other 3rd-party aggregators to get rides and new customers
When you hear of other technology companies (aggregators) that send you rides - you might think of the negatives - such as less money or no new customers. However, if you approach it the right way - they can be extremely beneficial. Our recommendation is to join these 3rd-party aggregators and introduce yourself to the passenger with a business card and immediately store their contact and the trip in your Moovs system. Once the ride is complete, follow up with the customer with an email mentioning that they can book through you next time. Here are some aggregators you should join:
5. Create an easy way for your customers to book
Customers like ease of use, but they don't want to have download an app for each new client they ride with. Create a free QR code that links directly to your booking widget so customers can book from your directly, faster.
