Autoshop Solutions Sweeps Away 5 Awards from AutoInc’s Top Ten Automotive Websites!


Recommended Posts

Apex, NC - Jan. 4, 2010 For the third consecutive year, Autoshop Solutions website swept the competition away at AutoIncs annual website competition. This year, Autoshop Solutions took away five of the Top Ten award winning sites a feat on it's own, however this is the third year in row! Autoshop Solutions, the innovative website marketing company run out of Apex, North Carolina is completely revolutionizing the independent automotive presence on the internet.

 

Taking away five of the ten awards available is nothing trite. AutoIncs Top 10 Automotive websites are judged on strict criteria. First impression, website objective, visual design, interactivity, and consumer friendliness are just some of the categories that a website needs to incorporate in order to make it to the top.

 

"Seeing that two repeat websites in addition to three new websites took away five out of ten awards this year is a huge honor for our clients as well as us," said Danny Sanchez, CEO & Founder of Autoshop Solutions, "Not only does this mean that our customers are successful with their businesses, but that they are helping to make our industry more web-savvy in an already internet driven society. Congratulations to all of the winners for an excellent job with their websites and online marketing efforts!

 

With beautiful, full color websites tailored for each independent shop, consumers can see what services a shop offers and see first-hand whether or not the shop is right for them. Autoshop Solutions is giving small independent businesses a big internet presence. This is revolutionizing business for the automotive industry.

 

Thirty years ago, independent auto shops relied on word of mouth, Ad Packs, newspapers, and the Yellow Pages to get the message across that they were the best in their field. Yellow Pages alone could cost a company a thousand or more dollars a month, depending on what type of presence they had. Autoshop Solutions offers a more affordable and effective way for shop owners to reach their target markets.

 

This years Top 10 competition recognized those websites that maintained a personal connection to customers, along with search engine optimization, integrated marketing campaigns and active social media outlets.

      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?

      If only we had a crystal ball to peak at the next 5 years. As a shop owner, you might still be booked out 2-3 weeks, but with gas prices, inflation, the great resignation, interest rates, and new and used car costs, what do you need to pay attention to in the short term to continue to be profitable and relevant?  Chris Cotton, AutoFix Auto Shop Coaching, Chris Cotton Weekly Blitz Podcast Hunt Demarest, CPA, Paar Mellis and Associates, Business by the Numbers Podcast Joe Marconi, Executive Council Member, Elite Worldwide.

      Key Talking Points
      Your employees should be your greatest strength. Invest in THEM to secure their future and the future of your business. Connect the dots with their goals and the company’s goals. Don’t ignore the people in your shop. Don’t get complacent. Productivity, efficiency, and effective labor rate are the 3 most important numbers in your business Systems, operations, and procedures. SOPs will set you free! Important to train the whole team on “what right looks like” so that everyone is rowing the boat in the same direction. It’s not about the one, it’s about the all. TEAMWORK makes the dream work. The automobile service industry is undergoing a literal revolution. The boomers are increasingly aging out, the number of independent competitors is shrinking fast, being a future top-shop will require much more business sophistication in the future, and the third-party investor feeding frenzy has begun. Smart owners need a strong business strategy, steeped in their legacy and exit strategy, to lead through these changes rather than just playing catch-up. Baby boomers retiring- 80-85% aren't worth making a private equity investment Shop owners coming from outside the industry- thinking from a business perspective  Elevating the industry through training and coaching Profit vs cash- cash brings personal spending habits into play, preserving cash Will it slow down? It matters what you do during the good times that will help you survive the bad times. Don’t let car count carry you. Redefine who you are and honed in

      A shop owner friend of mine told me that one of his top techs came to him to let him know that a shop across town contacted him to recruit him. The other shop offered more money and other benefits. This is not the first time I have heard this.  
      While recruiting is something shop owners need to do on a consistent basis, when does it cross the line?  Or does it?

      Have you thought about developing relationships with your customers and how they happen organically, intentionally, or not at all? Are your service advisors making that human connection daily? I’m joined by Kay Miller, author of “Uncopyable Sales Secrets: How to Create an Unfair Advantage and Outsell Your Competition.” Kay simplifies sales to a basic level that anyone can benefit from. In Kay’s early days in sales, she worked for Walker Exhaust and earned the moniker ‘Muffler Mama’. If you’re interested in reading a free chapter of her book, head to the show notes for the link. Or find her book on the books page on remarkableresults.biz

      Key Talking Points
      Take the uncopyable framework and apply it to sales! Young women in the industry- selling through distribution, didn’t have ‘credibility’ and didn't fully understand the product from their perspective. She asked to be taught how to install a muffler. ‘Muffler Mama’ Sales is a people business, no matter what product you're selling Sales, in general, is all about being uncomfortable and talking to strangers If you can make a human connection, that helps you get over the fear because the only way to truly get over being fearful of something is to do it Think of your target market as your moose, and that's who you want spend time building relationships with, attracting them, and pursuing and building a relationship so that you can get ongoing repeat sales and referrals The more you can know your client, the better chance you have of that kind of relationship s When you're talking to a customer, ask the questions that will get them talking. That is one of the biggest ways to build trust Listening and letting silence happen while the customer thinks about this, educating them and then saying, what do you think, or getting them to talk is huge in building trust It’s about studying the person and learning just beyond what they say but looking for actual clues  If you're never afraid, that's kind of a bad sign, you're not pushing your limits, so do something that scares you  Observe what you see other people doing. You can also just think about something that you can do to be unique The target market is your ideal customer- help them get what they want
