With these four steps, you’ll be able to…
Magnetically attract more (and even better!) customers to your shop Easily sell your services at higher prices than your competitors Increase your take-home pay by 30%, 50%, or more Find, hire, and keep that elusive tech you’ve been searching for Put the fun back into running your shop! Interested? Great.
There is zero cost to attend this live training and you won’t even have to leave the shop. All you need to do is set aside about 45 minutes of your day to join me right here online.

How many of you have ever done a seminar in your shop for your customers and potential customers in your community ? Discussing maintenance, repair etc.
This can be a great way to gain awareness for your business in your community and build relationships.

I’ll never forget the day when Mrs. Obrien brought her car back for me to look at. She was furious. I stayed late the night before, well into the night, to finish her car so she could have it for work the next day. I even did a few little things on the house because I felt she may be a little inconvenienced picking the car up so late.
Why did she bring the car back? A comeback? Well, not in the conventional way. It was the greasy smudge on her seat that she was angry about.
But what about me staying late? Or giving away a few minor services? Doesn’t that count? She is upset about a grease smudge? Oh yes, and she has every right to be.
The fact is, you can do the best repair, using the best parts, performed by the best technician on the planet. But what the customer sees is not necessarily your hard work, it’s that little greasy smudge that you are judged by. Unfortunate and unfair? Yes. But it’s a reality.
Perform the best repairs and provide world-class customer service; and never forget; it’s the little things the customer sees. And that’s what important to them.
