Auto Shop Solutions

Recommended Posts

Evening everyone!


I was wondering if anyone here uses Auto Shop Solutions as their website provider. Their sites look fantastic, but I want to make sure it's a worthwhile investment before taking that large of a plunge.


If anyone here has any information, I would be grateful!


Here is their link: http://autoshopsolutions.com/website-design/


Thanks in advance. Have a great day!

What are you wanting to accomplish by changing your website? Are you dissatisfied with the way your site looks?


Are you trying to get the phone to ring? Or something else entirely?

The main reason -I'm not excited with the SEO that my current company provides. The first few months it was great, but after a few months he stopped trying, wouldn't really keep the site updated. I also found out that most of my website is identical to other websites he had made, so there's not really that much unique content on it. And of course, I want the phone to ring because of the website.

Here's the way to look at return on investment for any kind

of marketing.


If you're going to spend a thousand dollars a month, it needs

to generate five to ten thousand dollars a month in additional

trackable sales. (This number is based on a conservative net of
10-20% of gross sales.)


Based on that, the question becomes: On a scale of one to ten,
how good is your service advisor at converting phone calls

and walk-in's into scheduled appointments?

Then, once the vehicle is on the lift, how good is your service
advisor at selling that job and other legitimate work that may

be discovered?

NOTE: My math was incorrect and I've corrected it.

      It always amazes me when I hear about a technician who quits one repair shop to go work at another shop for less money. I know you have heard of this too, and you’ve probably asked yourself, “Can this be true? And Why?” The answer rests within the culture of the company. More specifically, the boss, manager, or a toxic work environment literally pushed the technician out the door.
      While money and benefits tend to attract people to a company, it won’t keep them there. When a technician begins to look over the fence for greener grass, that is usually a sign that something is wrong within the workplace. It also means that his or her heart is probably already gone. If the issue is not resolved, no amount of money will keep that technician for the long term. The heart is always the first to leave. The last thing that leaves is the technician’s toolbox.
      Shop owners: Focus more on employee retention than acquisition. This is not to say that you should not be constantly recruiting. You should. What it does means is that once you hire someone, your job isn’t over, that’s when it begins. Get to know your technicians. Build strong relationships. Have frequent one-on-ones. Engage in meaningful conversation. Find what truly motivates your technicians. You may be surprised that while money is a motivator, it’s usually not the prime motivator.
      One last thing; the cost of technician turnover can be financially devastating. It also affects shop morale. Do all you can to create a workplace where technicians feel they are respected, recognized, and know that their work contributes to the overall success of the company. This will lead to improved morale and team spirit. Remember, when you see a technician’s toolbox rolling out of the bay on its way to another shop, the heart was most likely gone long before that.
