  5. We've got a big group gathering for dinner at the event, either Wednesday or Thursday night - anyone interested in joining? We've not picked a place yet, working on a head count! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. Well, I'd take some good notes and document what happened. Send the customer and email and leave a voicemail explaining that the initial evaluation is complete and estimate reassembling the car, and completing the no start evaluation once it's reassembled. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    As new members of IGONC (independent garage owners association of NC) we have found so many useful benefits and positives of being involved with such a great organizations. One of them being the ASTE event in Cary,NC! The training and expo has been a great resource for us. We learned so much last year, it has literally transformed our business. I just wanted to make sure the members here knew about the event and had the opportunity to research/plan to attend the event! http://asteshow.com/ https://www.facebook.com/ASTENC/ Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    I think a few lower reviews actually helps by confirming that the reviews aren't fake. Just bury them with good reviews. I'd suggest a campaign asking customers for reviews one week after completion . Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Facebook group

    I've seen more mentions of the forum than I had previously, and the activity here has pretty much been consistent (atleast in the areas I subscribe) since bringing attention to the group. I used to check the group daily, over the last year I can check it weekly and only see an occasional post. This didn't start with the mention of the group in my opinion. That's great Alex! Please let me know and I'll share it in the group. I think if forums are going to survive the Facebook movement it's going to take members actively working the forums. It's one thing to say, nothing is happening here. It's another thing to be posting useful information, sharing it into the groups on facebook and on personal pages, and then say nothing is happening here. If the forum is going to survive it's going to take action from the members to make that happen! That being said, as much as you may not like the idea, it may require webinars and events featuring non-sponsor speakers. I understand why this could be a problem for the paying sponsors, however if there's no activity there's not much use in being a sponsor. Our colleagues in the industry are hungry for interaction and communication with others in the field. But this isn't something that can be forced. It requires influence gained for the greater good, not just for profit. It takes hard work by all involved, for instance one of the key reasons that the facebook group has the growth and activity it does has nothing to do with the platform - It's because Bambi works the group constantly! She's finding speakers, reaching out to shop owners, going to groups where shop owners are present and offering to help and the list goes on and on! Build it and they will come only tells half the story - you need a reason for them to come, value in the experience, presence and a road map so they know where to go. If you want to see more activity here from the group, get a facebook account, join the group and participate! While you can only come to push the group, begin to offer the great advice that was once offered here! Show whats happening here!

    I've been working with Rick White over a 180biz for a while now. I'm sure he'd always be willing to help setup a webinar with you guys. Or maybe you could talk to a sponsor about doing one? Rick will be doing some over on the Facebook group in the future, I'd suggest you guys watch and see what type of interaction it gets! It's certainly very neat, and it really gets the industry professionals on a podium on those who aren't able to attend trainings and such. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    I mention it there from time to time. I will say that Bambi who manages the Facebook group does a very good job managing the group and keeping some of that trouble to a minimum! Facebook groups have a way of exploding from my past experiences however this is the first that's been around this long without those issues. I'll continue to mention the group, but the group needs some activity and happenings to help grow the base. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    I agree 100% that's why the two work so well together. This is a much more manageable format, and is much better for precise and clear information from those who have significant experience in the industry! Hopefully the forum will gain some no clientele. If you guys could have some events or things to draw folks from the group I'd be glad to post them! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    It can be, but I spend a bit of time advertising my business on Facebook and a few minutes scrolling through some of the post. The big advantages are the live videos done with industry experts such as Rick White, Aaron Stokes, Cecil Bullard, insurance companies, suppliers etc. There's also advantage as a sounding board, just like here as they will all give input on handling a negative review or marketing campaign but the input is received within moments. Carm from remarkable results is also using the group for his industry panel quite a bit! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
