There are many different website services, packages, and programs available when choosing the right company/webmaster for your auto repair business. You can sign up to a service that provides a robust website, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), analytics, marketing services, social network management, integrations, etc. You can also sign up for much simpler solutions which usually only include a website and some SEO. You can also try to use an online website builder to get yourself online with something very basic, which is better than nothing. So many different option and they all have their associated costs. In some cases there are initial startup costs as well. In most cases however, there are monthly costs associated with operating a business website.

Please take a moment and share, if you would like, about your website costs and associated services. Please also take a moment to answer a few quick question in the attached poll. Thank you.

      Most websites and website designers these days follow the guideline of 160 characters when writing website page meta descriptions. When they are longer, Google just truncates them to 160...well until December 2017 when Google decided to accept that number to be around 300 with some recommending to make it 320. If your web designer wrote your website page descriptions shorter, you aren't taking advantage of the description tag to better your SEO and possibly your click-through rate. It's time to look at your website pages to be sure.

      Are you fed up with the day-to-day in the shop? Ready to shift gears and make money without breaking your back?
       
      Our online store is for sale. Owner wants to put his sole focus on the projects we have in the shop so that he can wrap them up and retire. Our online store averages $2800 in sales per month with absolutely no advertising. There are many more items we could add to increase sales, but being that we are a two-person operation we have too much going on to properly manage and advertise the website.
       
      Here are the details from the listing:
      Brand has existed since the late 90s, re-branded in 2008 when we moved and expanded our offerings Well-known name in the Corvette community We offer solutions that no one else in the Corvette and GM high performance field offer Currently monetized solely through ecommerce transactions Site platform- WordPress with Ecwid for cart ($17 per month); Knownhost VPS hosting ($35 per month) Will include domain, Facebook page, and Twitter account Site currently only includes products we have researched and developed, but we have accounts with several major parts distribution companies and those parts could easily be added to the site and dropshipped to customers Training available for 30 days following purchase. Buyer has the option of continuing to buy products from us, or buying rights (cost of which is included in sale of site) to the proprietary info (preferred). Buyer will need to take over the before and after sale support. Owner is retiring and downsizing. The site has never reached its full potential because we also run a busy repair shop, write books, and travel to seminars, etc. We have not advertised because we do not have the proper time to devote to the website. Owner prefers to continue with the repair side of the business and sell the online portion of the business.  
      Please contact me if I can answer any questions. Thank you!
