  1. Can you really get the car count you need in the middle of a COVID-19 LOCKDOWN? I wanted to share exactly what one shop owner did. I include the exact email he sent me that details HIS NUMBERS - and then show you exactly what he did - and even how much it cost him. Let me know if you have any questions. Hope this helps!

  3. With all due respect, I think we'll be lucky if this only goes on for two more weeks. From what I'm hearing from various sources is that it could easily go on until the end of June... and some say that's in a "best case scenario". I said it before, but if you're the type of shop owner that complained about buying fire insurance and are now trying to get insurance while your house is on fire, you may not survive the new economy. (Sorry to rain on anyone's parade, but right now, there isn't any sugar to make the medicine go down easier). ;-/ Hope this helps!

  4. Agreed! The issue that I'm seeing more and more of is best wrapped up by saying that are so many shop owners "trying to buy fire insurance when the house is on fire!" Really?!? At no other time would you want to be a month too early then a day too late! In so many that I talk with, they're (almost) too late. With that said, it's not about getting car count today. Sure, there are repairs out there that need to be completed - and there's safe ways to make that happen. But the reality is that it's about maintaining the car count you've had so it comes back to you when this blows over. Right now, it's about communicating with customers. Yes, tell them you're open (if you are) and the steps you're taking to make it safe. Remember, those car owners have busy lives that are interrupted. But they still need to get out to get groceries, medications and other things. It's time the repair shop market step up to the plate and communicate with their customers. And for a majority of shops who haven't looked at their customer list for years... thinking that they're all customers (not just names, ha!) they could find themselves being a day to late. I just released this brand new training about 3 things shop owners need to do right now to not only protect their business, but prosper in the future.... because if you haven't noticed, we ARE in a new economy. Hope this helps! Matthew "The Car Count Fixer"
  5. Thanks for stopping by! Obviously we’re entering a new economy. At no other time have we witnessed wide sweeping changes to how we do business; what’s expected of us; how customers respond and what we need to do. I released this brand new training to show you three things you can do right now. Shop owners who have done at least one of the strategies I explain in the training, have already got results booking appointments. You’re welcome to grab a pad and pen and copy any of the details to help you. Hope this helps Matthew “The Car Count Fixer”
  6. ... and if you are remaining open - communicate that with your customers! Above that, tell them what you're doing - tell them the steps you're taking to make it safe for them. Yes, this will pass. But the problem is you need to communicate this message now! If you're looking for what to say, I just released a video that details what Car Count Hackers are doing - and they're getting calls and thanks and return text messages too! Oh, some are even booking appointments - because let's face it - the virus doesn't know when your car is due for service! Hope this helps!

  7. Hi DUFRESNES and all! You're 100% correct! What's important is that you actually took the steps to reach out and contact customers!

We're offering a 100% totally FREE 7 DAY TRIAL on the GO-MO TEXT PLATFORM NOW!

  8. Agreed Joe. The most important part is communication. Get in touch with your customer. Let them know you are thinking about them. Let them know you care. And yes, (if you are) let them know you're open and available for them. My group of car count hackers have all reached out and have gone as far as telling customer what they're doing. I detailed it all in this video, and you're welcome to take notes and use the exact wording that I detail in the video. Stay safe. Keep calm. We ARE in this together! Hope this helps!

  9. We're in strange times. I've published this video in hopes to help shop owners in these difficult times Matthew "The Car Count Fixer:
  10. Joe, I agree with your comments 100%. For most, it's the FEAR that's driving them to make decisions that don't make sense. They PANIC. Now, the drop in business is real, but like most others, it's a bump in the road. If we all simply rely on the hard facts (like WHO information) and stay away from all the FEAR and PANIC, we'll do fine. I posted about this too with the best advice I've got. You can read that here: Thanks again for your calm sensible approach and comments. Matthew "The Car Count Fixer"
  11. THIS IS DIFFERENT I know, I know. Yet ANOTHER message about the Coronavirus. But this one's different. Let's get to work. Here’s What I know: 1. What's going to happen: Things are going to get weird. Then they will get better. It's a new virus. It's contagious. It gets people really sick. A small percentage of those people die. That sucks. 2. What is "everybody" going to do? People are going to continue to panic and then they'll stop. They're going to panic for two reasons. First, because this is a new virus and it's pretty nasty and that's pretty scary. Second, because of the media ...specifically social media. It's full of anecdotal "reports" ...and light on facts.We humans like to pass on "information" without checking it out. And traditional media (the news) gets paid for viewership ...and nothing drives viewership like FEAR. In my opinion, World Health Organization is probably the best place to get your info about this situation. 3. What this means for Your Repair Shop: The best answer I can give you here is ...IT DEPENDS. The best advice I can give you is actually a quote from one of my long time mentors, Mr. Jim Rohn. Mr. Rohn once said… (this isn’t a direct quote, but you’ll get the gist of it)... “You can not change the direction of the winds. You can change the setting of your sails.” Are you going to spend your time browsing social media, watching the news all day, and talking back and forth with people about this situation? Or are you going to FOCUS on business? I'd suggest you focus on business, avoid crowds, and wash your hands. If you step up and LEAD them, you'll stand out. (And it's good Karma.) Think about it this way. Most of your competition will be following the herd and doing the whole "let's sit around and talk about the corona virus ...while simultaneously browsing social media and reading stuff about the coronavirus...while simultaneously watching the news for updates on the coronavirus thing. That means they're NOT promoting. They're NOT in front of the market. They're NOT in the game. What I'm doing personally: 1. Avoiding large crowds, washing my hands, and keeping my immune system strong. 2. Not paying attention to anyone other than non-biased expert health organizations. That means no social media.No news media. Just the facts. 3, I’ve got new free training being released in the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned and I’ll keep you posted.

  12. I get the issue of the dealer looking for that "fee" from shops. But I think what's being overlooked is what they're doing with their customers. Like, the lesson is ,"do be worried about what I'm doing... LOOK at what I'm doing... AND DO THAT!" If you're not reaching your customers on their phones.. somebody else will... but YOU may not like what they do to your business! Hope this helps!

  13. Dabbling? Don't be worried. Here's a simple, easy and painless way to do this. First, just about every shop owner I talk to tells me that people "typically" don't ask what the shop rate is. If they do, don't be ashamed of your rate. But better than that, get a calendar out (yeah, one you can scribble on) and review your shop rate MONTHLY! I didn't say raise it monthly, but at least review it. If you start keeping track, you'll be surprised of how long it's been since your last price increase. With that said, my clients review every month and typically raise their prices every 2-3 months. I know, sounds crazy, right? But wait. Those increases are small. In some cases, just $2-$4/hour. Then look at your most recent RO's. If you calculated those jobs with that increase, would it have made a difference? I'm going to go out on the limb here and say "NO!". With a typical RO being 2-3 hours of labor, raising it $4-$8 in total wouldn't make a difference. But here's where you win! Calculate the total number of hours you provide a year. That $3-$4 increase really adds up. With one of my clients, I asked him to raise his rates $6/hour. At the end of the year, he made an extra $22,000 and didn't work harder, come in earlier or stay later. Could you use that extra $22,000? Figured you said yes! But the best part... every shop I've worked with... and I mean every one of them... never had a complaint about the increase! And why the calendar? You should be planning/reviewing every month with small incremental changes evert 2-3 months. It really adds up at the end of the year. It's simple math - run your numbers and let me know what you find! Hope this helps! Matthew "The Car Count FIxer" P.S.: Your text message program can't do this!

  14. Agreed! You're 100% right! But why not use a tool that lets you do that + schedule appointments, get customer reviews posted wherever you want (Google, Yelp, etc) get customer referrals and even send coupons that put car count in your shop. I am crazy busy and don't have the time to write it all out - but I would be happy to get on the phone and explain it all in 10 minutes. Just use the link http://askthecarcountfixer.com/
  15. Hi YYCAutoSpecialist! The best way I can answer your question is by telling you "sort of - but not really". Confusing, I know. I've talked to 100's of shop owners who all tell me they text. Good idea. I know it works. So my question to them is... "How many jobs did THAT text message system put in YOUR SHOP this month?" The answer... (and this has been every time...) is typically a long period of quiet followed by a shy, "none". So that's the difference. I didn't have a chance to go through everything they offer, but what I can tell you is that GO-MO Texting/Marketing is developed & built for shop owners. I could go on and on and bore you with stories of shop owners who sent ONE TEXT and got 8 JOBS BOOK THAT DAY... but I won't waste your time. Want to find out more? You can start with out basic system here: http://bit.ly/start-texting-for-free If you're a seasoned pro, you'll want to shoot me a message here: http://askthecarcountfixer.com/ I'd be more than happy to answer any question you're got!
