Post your shop's website!

Kaos

 

i like the fact that your website is easy to read and go through. When trying to show too much, i get a little lost/dizzy looking at web pages.

 

So yours is clean and simple : that's what i like.

 

i know you are not done yet, is it normal that the bottom links don't work (Welcome/Schedule/Team/Managment/Map/Address/Contact Us)

 

Good Work !

Hello,

I have a new website and would appreciate any feedback you guys could give me. I actually liked the look of my old website better, but the new guy I hired said the site coding was outdated. I do plan on making changes to the content as we go along. A lot of the things that are on it I don't like from a technician's viewpoint (IE Picture of diesel injection pump, some of the services listed). He told me not to worry we will review the performance in a few months and make any changes that are necessary. My biggest obstacle is the time it takes to write the content for the website. The good thing is that it is getting the phone to ring. I am not looking for feedback on looks or graphics as these have very little to do with it's performance. I want to use the website and tailor it to bring the right customers in. As with any advertising it seems to bring in a lot of price conscious customers which can be very difficult for a shop that focuses on quality and doing the job right.

We are still building ours. Just getting use to all the new technology and social media pages. Our next step is to have the story of our family owned business added somewhere on the site. The family has been in this business since 1930 right in downtown Riverview and our newest and second location is Hancock Tire and Auto Service just north of Riverview nearer to Tampa.

This is our new website. Still needs tweaking but I would love to hear some feedback on it. I like the "My Garage" feature. Customers can set up their vehicle to receive automated emails when factory service intervals are due and they will receive a monthly newsletter with any current coupons. I also like it because it is tied in with my management software so when a ticket is completed a garage profile is automatically created for the customer and they will receive the suggested service emails and also will receive a copy of their invoice by email after they leave.

New recently

 

www.johnsplaceglenview.com

 

Bossman, looks good but a couple of critiques if I may...

 

1.www.johnsplaceglenview.com looks to be the same as www.personalizedautocare.com, I would redirect one or the other domain to the other. Or you have domain masking going on. Search engines are not crazy about that.

 

2. All your pages have the same title or Meta Title which is not great for search engines:

 

 <title>Glenview, Northbrook, Wilmette, and Winnetka Auto Repair Services | Personalized Auto Care | Glenview, IL</title>

MINI4U, nice looking site. All your pages seem to have the same Meta Title as well, which is not great for Search Engines. Looks like every web page is named:

 

<title>Botzon's Automotive. Specializing in European import service and repair. Spokane, WA</title>

But oddly, google does show a bunch of separate pages, was your site changed recently?

 

To check your site pages in google, type "site:www.botsonsauto.com" which will give you all the indexed pages. They will fall out if they all have the same title and your site will loose relevency.

 

Just a suggestion.. :D

Great thread to be revived.

 

Here is our website:

 

www.mspecperformance.com

 

Kukui made it for us. They do all of our internet marketing and CRM. We have been with them for about a year now. I am happy with the level of service and results we get. I need to update the pictures on the site, they are a little dated at this point.

xrac,

 

That is a terrible picture of me, I am young but that picture makes me look like I'm 12. I'm actually getting our website manager photographs of our shop, crew and myself. So hopefully within a couple days that will be changed.

      Most shop owners would agree that the independent auto repair industry has been too cheap for too long regarding its pricing and labor rates. However, can we keep raising our labor rates and prices until we achieve the profit we desire and need? Is it that simple?
      The first step in achieving your required gross and net profit is understanding your numbers and establishing the correct labor and part margins. The next step is to find your business's inefficiencies that impact high production levels.
      Here are a few things to consider. First, do you have the workflow processes in place that is conducive to high production? What about your shop layout? Do you have all the right tools and equipment? Do you have a continuous training program in place? Are technicians waiting to use a particular scanner or waiting to access information from the shop's workstation computer?
      And lastly, are all the estimates written correctly? Is the labor correct for each job? Are you allowing extra time for rust, older vehicles, labor jobs with no parts included, and the fact that many published labor times are wrong? Let's not forget that perhaps the most significant labor loss is not charging enough labor time for testing, electrical work, and other complicated repairs.  
      Once you have determined the correct labor rate and pricing, review your entire operation. Then, tighten up on all those labor leaks and inefficiencies. Improving production and paying close attention to the labor on each job will add much-needed dollars to your bottom line.

      Many auto repair shops are still busy, and many are booked out from a few days to weeks.  After the initial shock of Covid, the recovery for our independent auto repair industry has been quite good, with many positive indicators for the future.
      However, how many of the auto repair shops that did suffer a great loss in business during the lockdown phase of Covid would have survived if not for the SBA loans, the Pay Protection Program and the Employee Retention Credit?  
      Building a cash reserve is crucial to prepare yourself for the next economic downturn.  How much should you set aside?  That depends on your business model, how much debt you have and other financial conditions.  Speak to your accountant, financial advisor and business coach, if you have one. 
      Rule of thumb, you should have at least three months of operating expenses set aside in a dedicated bank account.  Some accountants and financial advisors may suggest up to six months.

Facilitating- a group usually consists of 18 to 20 shop owners. They are assigned a partner, they have an individual accountability partner along with access to their facilitator coach. Have three in-person meetings a year. Part of those in-person meetings is to evaluate the whole shop. Go in,  do a full evaluation of the shop, and give the owner feedback on areas for improvement. The other time is spent with training, and reviewing financial numbers, because if you don't know your numbers, you're never going to grow your business. In between, they have a couple of Zoom meetings as an entire group, and then the facilitator does reach out individually once a month.  Never be the smartest person in the room If you’re not learning, you’re not growing Celebrate other people's accomplishments Joining a coaching company- understand profits, understand the structure of a business, understand your numbers, and structure your finances to make a profit.  “Mama Bear of the Team”- Jennifer wants to see individual employees and their families succeed.

      This shop is too slow. This shop is too busy. This shop doesn’t know either way. It wasn’t long ago that we heard a good bit of chatter regarding shops who were experiencing slow days but most recently we have experienced shops on the other end of the spectrum. They’re too busy and have mentioned pausing their marketing. In this episode, we discuss what shops can do to shift their marketing instead of stopping all together.
      Talking Points
      The too-busy shop trend - sound crazy, but true. Mistake: stop marketing. Busy today does not mean busy tomorrow. Stopping all marketing creates a roller coaster effect Everything is great until one day it isn’t Do you own a business or do you own a job? It’s time to grow up. Never stop marketing; pivot instead. Change messaging to less sales/promotion and more culture Start hiring Focus on brand building Messaging Shift to: More company culture Brand awareness Great Place to work Customer Acquisition Ads Community Relations Social Media SEO Customer Retention Emails Texting Social Media
