Alan Day Volkswagen Case Study

SecretService™ achieved an average invoice value of £1,427


Google, and other search engines carry a huge volume of aggressive advertising with messaging that states franchise servicing is expensive, misdirecting motorists to book with disruptors. A solution was needed to:

  • Increase LCV workshop bookings
  • Receive more conquest customers
  • Improve retention of existing customers

The SecretService™ Solution

Alan Day was provided with an exclusive tenancy for LCV in their area.

It would attract new and existing LCV customers who were researching online, and at risk of migrating to independents or fastfits advertising messaging such as ‘60% cheaper than dealers. It would divert them back to the franchise, but only reveal the franchise brand AFTER the booking was confirmed.


  • 76 additional workshop bookings to date
  • Huge upsell opportunities sold
  • Achieved a 273% return on investment, exceeding the expected 200%
  • Regaining old and winning new conquest customers:
