Very nice website. Looks to be search engine optimized well. When I type "ken's auto service" in Google, it comes up. Does it come up for your area? I see your keywords are good, and zip code targeted:

 

auto repair, car repair, automotive service, auto garage, mechanic, brake repair, engine repair, shocks, struts, suspension work, air conditioning, tune-up, akron, canton, springfield, cut-rate, mufflers, exhaust, 44312, 44310, 44305, 44301, 44308, ohio, brakes, tune ups, diagnosis, towing, radiators, computer diagnosis, fleet repairs, starters, guarantee, warranty, certified, ASE.

 

Looks good, nice layout.

 

I don't have a site up currently, but do have some expericence with them.

That is quite a bit of traffic. I need to build a Facebook page for our business also.

 

 

Yeah, I also use a google function called "Local Business Center" which is another free listing that Google offers. You can edit your existing listing on their site and "own" it. You can upload information about your business, hours, pictures, etc. It also tracks your hits to your listing. I get over 2500 impressions monthly with around 700-1000 clicks for more information. I have had tremendous success with it. When I created the Facebook page, Google automatically picked it up and attached a link to it under my listing. That is where the traffic is coming from mostly.

 

I would suggest everyone set up this Local Business Center, it is the single most successful advertising that I have done to date and it didn't cost me a dime. See one of my listings here: One location. Each individual shop has a listing with pictures and info. Google is amazing.

I recently got my website redesigned. What do you guys think? Its a work in progress but this is main idea.

 

www.CARMandP.com

 

Looks good. I like the graphics and layout. You have some JS (javascript) errors. 3 that I see when the pages load. (Internet Explorer 8) You may want to have your designer look into that.

 

Your keywords are:

 

car, auto, tn, white, house, auto repair, auto repair white house, auto repair white house tn, car repair, imports, import auto repair tn, foreign, bmw, volvo, mercedes, saab, volkswagon, honda, nissan, toyota, mitsubishi

 

They are good, however..they are the same for every page. You may want to do something let's say for this page: Our Auto Repair Services , and add some of those services in there. Make each page as unique as possible.

 

I would also include your shop name as part of every title, like:

 

About Us - CAR Maintenance & Performance

Our Auto Repair Services - CAR Maintenance & Performance

 

It's not always great to copy a site title to every page, but in your case...the words CAR and Maintenance are good title key words.

 

You should resubmit your website to:

 

Google.com

Bing.com

Yahoo.com

dmoz.org

 

Currently in google, you have 2 listings only and they are from 2008: Google

 

Hopefully this will help you a bit. :D

We have been working on our first site for a couple of months now and just turned it on yesterday afternoon. Let me know what you all think.

www.hoganmuffler.com

 

Nice layout. You should change your page title tags and add Hogan Muffler in there. Every page has the same page title: Performance Exhaust Topeka Kansas, Auto Repair Services, Mendrel Bending, Mufflers, Brakes

 

Also a JS error in IE8

I like it that you are using reCaptcha: Performance Exhaust Topeka Kansas, Auto Repair Services, Mendrel Bending, Mufflers, Brakes We use that here also to combat spam and false inputs. Can I suggest that you add your header to thsi page also? The appointment page. Unless it's just not loading on that page for me.

      Honesty is always the best policy, but sometimes is it better to omit certain information to a customer? What if you make a mistake but make it right and eat the cost? Are there situations where you don’t divulge all that information to a customer? Let’s have an open discussion on ethics and your shop’s reputation.
      Matt Fanslow, lead diagnostician and shop manager, Riverside Automotive, Red Wing, MN. Matt’s previous episodes HERE Matt Fanslow Podcast: Diagnosing the Aftermarket A to Z Al Wright, John's Automotive, Cedar Rapids, IA Key Talking Points
       There are times when being completely open is endearing, but other times where it simply hurts the shop's reputation, and the client learning about it changes nothing. They aren't paying more for the service, they aren't leaving with an improperly repaired vehicle.  The issue/mistake/mishap can be kept in-house and learned from. It's not uncommon for us to "lie" by omission, namely when mistakes are made.  We don't call out the specific tech that erred.  That is to be frowned upon.  Unfortunately, we also seem to lie by omission by not calling out the specific tech when there's a victory or a job well done. Another situation MAY be just thinking out loud, which may not always be a good thing, or misdiagnosing a vehicle. What is the best way to fire a customer without damaging the shop's reputation?   In a small community, you have to be careful in your explanation to the customer to prevent the ripple effect.  Comebacks - every shop has them, and it's the first interaction when they return that makes all the difference in defusing a bad situation. Let the customers speak first.  Reputation isn't just a business transaction, reputation is just as important as community involvement. Shop culture can also affect your reputation. It's your employee for 40 hours of the week; what do they say about you and their peers the 80 hours a week?

      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?
