It's been a little while since I've used adwords... I do have some experience with it. Google adwords is a way for you to bid on select keywords and placement on search engine results and within adsense listing on other sites. For instance, a majority of the ads that you see on AutoShopOwner.com are sites that are using adwords and bidding on placement.

 

Sign up to adwords, it's free. Start a campaign and see what the amounts are for targeted keywords. You will see that the more popular they are, the more expensive they are.

 

When you are on Google, you have 2 types of search results: Natural listings and Paid Listings (from adwords)

 

My suggestion would be to bid on keyword phrases that are not too general....

 

Too general: car repair, auto repair, auto mechanic (can generate visits that will not convert to customers)

 

More specific: westwood car repair, westwood auto mechanic (adding the town or market you are going for, will help keep it more targetted and save you money on clicks that really will not amount to much.)

      Firstly let me say that I an just a regular guy from the UK who is the owner of a seven bay service centre/garage. I am not a financial expert. The dreaded inflation is upon us again. For the guys as old as me then this is nothing new. Back in the 70,s we had 15% inflation, but we all got by and lived for better trading days. Here in the UK we have always looked up to the USA because of your business prowess. So what do you guys look out as your worst enemy!
      When prices are going up then I find that the gap opens between rich and the poor's disposable income. So this question will effect garage owners in different areas. My garage is in a poor area with many immigrant families who drive cars. So this means we have to be more flexible with pricing. Finding out if your customer can afford that service ! For this reason we devised a three tier service pricing structure. This has also the effect of not loosing your profit margins. 
      The lowest price should include an oil and filter change and a general vehicle check over. This way we find the customer will perhaps be able to afford a service and your profit margins wont drop. This is just one small idea that we carry out! What do you guys do in these times of high inflation ?

      Most communities have a variety of repair shops, dealerships, and franchise models.  Do you consider them the competition, or colleagues?
      Do you think it's worth it to get to know other auto businesses in your community?  To share and exchange business ideas and strategies?

      There seem to be mixed opinions on what Business System is the best. And also, not all business systems fit a particular repair shop model.
      There are a lot of new players in the past few years: Auto Leap, Protractor, Teckmetrics, Shop Boss, Shop Monkey, and more.
      Are you happy with your system?  What features are important to you?

      We all know that techs and service advisors have two distinctly different roles. And both get different training.  Service advisors are on the front lines every day taking care of customers, selling work, organizing work, and a lot more.  
      While most customers don't engage with the technician, is there a time when we should allow the customer to speak to the technician?

      According to studies from Northwestern, Birdeye, and other companies, people are most influenced by reviews with an average rating of 4.2 to 4.5 stars out of 5 — making this the ideal average star rating for purchase probability.
      Having all 5-star Google reviews can work against you.  People may not trust a company with all 5-star reviews. No business is perfect, and you cannot please everyone. Also, people make mistakes.
      Having negative reviews is not the end of the world, in fact, it may actually help your business.
