    Mobile Auto Repair?

    Thanks for your feedback xrac! I appreciate that. I think you wrapped it up pretty well. That $80K barrier to entry (financed or not) is pretty hi for the average. Then the help issue - and heck, I wasn't even thinking about getting parts. I guess the suppliers still won't deliver to "the corner of 1st and Main!" Thanks for the input. Matthew

    Mobile Auto Repair?

    Thanks for your input Old and Tired! I think you're right about mobile being the solution for guy who want their own shop - but heck, the cost of operating a TRUCK... and I'm not talking about just the gas. There's the insurance... and even travel time too! Just to be sure... I'm not trying to say that Pep Boys is the answer - nor do I believe mobile is the answer, and what you're saying about the stores failing sort of proves that. Amazon selling auto repair? I thought they were selling unicorns next? Am I wrong? Thanks for your input! Matthew
  6. Hello Everyone! Hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving as much as I did. I wanted to bring this topic up because of PEP BOYS recent "expansion" into launching their "mobile" service. I was interested in your thoughts. Are mobile mechanics a threat to your shop in any way? What are your thoughts? Do they/can they provide the service that today's cars need? Or, on the other hand, do you operate as a mobile tech? What are the struggles you face. From what I am hearing, people "seem" to expect mobile to be cheaper. Only trying to start a discussion about this - and really because, from what I am seeing, there's a lot of buzz around the Pep Boys effort. Comments? Really interested to know your thoughts.

    BBB

    I agree 100% with all the comments. As a business owner, you CLEARLY see that it's... well, for the lack of a better word... "a racket". Problem is - what do your customers say? It's a difficult decision, but still expensive. Hope this helps!

    Yellow Pages

    I agree with xrac. Yes, there's that "iconic" part of Yellow Pages but when you think about it, the PHONE is the remote control to everyone's life. The last time (about a couple of years ago) that I had a client book any YP listings, the push continued to get them listed in their on-line app, etc. Sorry, don't recall all the details - and I can find out if you want - but it was more of a push to sell you everything else. Sorry - that's the truth. Hope this helps! Matthew Lee "The Car Count Fixer" PS: Hey, just opened registration to my new FREE training course - How to Double Your Car Count in 89 Days

    Creating coupons/ Pictures

    Hi sparkerauto! If you're using Microsoft Office, you may already have MS Publisher. You'll have access to a bunch of templates and things in the program - plus access to other online resources. Can I ask... what type of coupon are you creating?? By that, I mean... is it going to be a stand alone coupon (full page) or "postcard size"? The big problem is that there's 100's of ways to create them. With respect to pictures/logo, etc., that can get a little more complicated. Again, depending on what you're trying to do. The real good programs like Photoshop, Corel etc. have a rather long learning curve. We use them all - but we do a lot of that type of stuff. Hope this helps!

    Anyone tried Groupon?

    I agree that it's not for every shop. But what does a shop owner do when they're not doing ANYTHING to attract new customers. They can't just close their eyes and hope. Above that, there's ways to squeeze the lemon a little better. I've had clients who have done these... but the win comes from 1) Not creating a ONE TIME offer; 2) Creating a good offer - not just dropping your pants on price; 3) Follow up I've got a video with some ideas.

    Community Outreach

    Nice job! You're 100% right about supporting your community. But you can get more "mileage" out of it when you get photos and use the best one in your waiting area. Don't assume every person who comes to visit you knows about your community support. Want to take it one step further? Add a short video and post it on your facebook page. Shoot a simple iPhone video... let customers and potential customer get to know YOU. People do business with people - not companies! Overall, nice work!

  14. How can it be true that an independent auto repair shop almost doubles the price of their oil change service without raising their shop rates, parts pricing or adding any more costs? I know, sounds crazy, but we've done it. I am releasing the information shortly - but this short video explains it all. There isn't anything to buy - no sneaky sales pitch - nothing. It's just about how we used a new tactic to present our oil change prices. All the details are being released next week - so you'll want to subscribe (that's FREE TOO!) so you won't miss a thing!

  15. Hi Pete K! About your site at http://www.prospeedautoworks.com/. I always start with a screen shot off my phone... I have to tell you that it's not very good. You can't read it on your phone because it's not mobile optimized. That's the BIGGEST ISSUE. Remember, Google claims that 84% of your customers are going to find you on MOBILE FIRST! This could also be a HUGE SEO Issue. When Google "went mobile" and put all the focus on that, they didn't stop including your site in search... but it's probably been pushed way down (like page 10!!) because of this issue. Remember, Google is about THEIR USER EXPERIENCE. Sending a mobile user to your site wouldn't be very good - so they don't do that. That's probably a huge part of your SEO issues. Also, nowhere in your title do you include a GEO LOCATION. When I checked, your title was: PRO-SPEED - Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Classic Cars, Resto-mods, Customs, Performance First problem, nobody searches by your COMPANY NAME. They don't know you yet. Secondly, (like I said) no GEO location. Consider something like... Hot Rods, Muscle Cars, Classic Cars, Resto-mods, Customs, Performance Chantilly, Virginia, 20151 Then be sure to add SCHEMA DATA. In short, Schema is a language that all search (Google, Bing, Yahoo) agreed upon to help search bots understand WHAT YOUR SITE is all about. You can read all about Schema here (https://schema.org/), but in short, it's giving the search engines a clearer understanding of what your site is all about. Above that, there's a bunch of little things like using <h1>, <h2> tags, alt tags and even your meta description. Your current meta description is: PRO-SPEED Autoworks, LLC performs auto and truck restoration, custom modifications, performance upgrades, rust repair, metal repair, fabrication, paint and body work, performance tuning, engine upgrades, suspension upgrades. We secialize in hot rods, classic cars and resto-mods. PRO-SPEED AutoWorks is located in Chantilly, VA - US Says a lot- and probably too much. I also noticed that when I search your company, Google serves up your video (slide show) first. But there's now sound. Even a simple "voice over" with a little royalty free music would be better. I know video can be a little overwhelming - but you've already got what it takes to do it! YOUR PHONE! I made a short video about using customer reviews on your facebook page - talking about shooting video - but it applies to ANY VIDEO that you can do with a phone. On top of that, you have a huge opportunity to add short videos to your YouTube channel as a way to attract more customers. Simple before and after video would be a great place to start. Just explain the problem and show the solution. I know this is getting a little long... but I hope it helps! If you need any other tips or help, just let me know. You can message me on this forum!
