Vendors across the country are doing what they can to help small businesses. How is your shop adapting, and could some of these free resources help?
Exclusive Co-op Program
You own a car and a bicycle. You own a computer and a mailbox. So why would you rely solely on email marketing to market your bike shop? The fact remains that most shops only have a small number of customer email addresses, which makes direct mail a valuable vehicle for driving store traffic for a special promotion or event. It’s also a great way to build customer loyalty and increase referral business.
Members of The Bike Cooperative get exclusive access to 100% customize-able direct mail, with better rates than you’ll find anywhere else.
Looking for a fast, easy, and cheap way to reach out to your customers where you’re virtually guaranteed to find them? The Bike Cooperative’s direct mail program uses the scale of 300+ stores to offer our members low prices, fast delivery, and free customization.
We can print and mail your direct mail pieces for you, or just simply print them for you to distribute. There is no charge to clean your customer list. Plus, you can supplement your mailing with prospective customers in your area based on demographic criteria.
Since The Bike Cooperative is part of an even larger Co-op group, we have great volume pricing that other competitors can’t come close to. Pricing will always depend on quantity and what you’re looking for, but can be as low as $.55/piece (and in some cases, lower).
Some of the most popular uses for our direct mail program include seasonal blasts, holiday events, and special sales.
With more retail competition than ever before, bike dealers across the country need to cooperate and get creative to prepare for 2020, 2025, and beyond. From data tools and training resources to consumer financing geared to give your sales team an edge – The Bike Cooperative brings together the scale of America’s bike shops to help them do more. Find resources and tips on all of these area in The Bike Cooperative’s blog.
Membership is currently OPEN for passionate IBD’s focused on growing & thriving with the benefits of our shared scale.
