MONROE, Mich. – The Expert Plus service dealer loyalty program from Tenneco – created to help automotive service businesses increase their share of the undercar service market – includes a complete marketing and promotional package for 2014.
“This year’s Expert Plus Program certainly makes it easier to become a leader in ride and emissions control sales,” said Sheryl Bomia, North American Aftermarket programs manager, Tenneco. “The 2014 package includes a full year of consumer-driven promotions, sales incentives, training programs and an array of attractive merchandising products that are only available to members.”
The 2014 Expert Plus package – which includes a new Monroe counter stool highlighting the premium Monroe OESpectrum product line – has increased emphasis on training, incentives and consumer promotions.
The Expert Plus marketing package also features an Expert Plus “Preferred Customer” rebate book, which allows service professionals to extend promotional offers for Tenneco products beyond the standard promotional periods and is available for premium ride and emission control products.
