This week on the PDR Marketing Minute, Gene challenges his listeners to implement a strategy that was discussed in the Mind Your Business seminar in their own businesses and then share a result with him. He encourages you to get back with your results through PDRMarketingMinute.com or through the PDRMarketingMinute page on Facebook.

The strategy used was dividing the audience into 2 groups and then brainstorming and coming up with ideas to get new business for your own PDR business for just 3 minutes. Gene then goes on to describe a few plans that his group came up with. One of the first ideas was to reach out to corporate events and have a Dent Day to help with employee retention. Another great idea was to attend local networking meetings where you could pitch your business to a large audience. There was even a discussion about regularly getting onto a radio show that is specifically related to cars.

He then advises listeners to spend just five minutes and come up with ideas that will get them more business. Gene also encourages listeners to send in their ideas and says that he will discuss some of the best ideas and how to implement them in the next episode.

Head to PDRMarketingMinute.com to sign up to Gene’s email list and get his Review System. You can even register for the 2019 PDR College Advanced Skills Seminar in Orlando through the website.

This week’s episode continues with Gene’s Basic Marketing Needs. While last week, he discussed his least favorite topics – Yelp, this week he talks about one of his most favorite topics – YouTube which he considers as the best way to market. Gene explains how important it is to create a channel and link it with your Google My Business account. It should be tied together under the same Google account.

He further goes into what type of content you should post by advising listeners to avoid posting boring content. Along with that, he says not to have music playing in the background when recording a video. In terms of PDR repairs, Gene says long before and after videos should be avoided. The videos uploaded should be educational for your customers. Another important thing to remember when creating videos is to show your face and engage with the viewers. If you can create videos with the perfect balance of education and fun, your channel will do well.

Looking at an example, Gene turns to Bryce Kelly’s video where he explains how to remove a dent that lies through the body line of the vehicle. If you implement this in your videos, you will be able to create educational videos with every repair job you receive. One of the most important factors that help make your channel a success is interaction. Share your videos, comment on other PDR videos, and create a community. Because YouTube is owned by Google, posting and interacting on YouTube can get you on the first page of Google. If your content is powerful enough, your videos can outrank websites on Google and get you to the first page.

Gene explains that PDR is all about visual work and therefore videos are the best way to market a business or service. And when it comes to videos, YouTube is the best. Posting on Facebook can also help, but is not as potent. Finally, he speaks about a special project that will be announced in the coming weeks. He will be selecting a few people to work with personally to help their PDR business grow. There are only a few spots open and to join, listeners can head to PDRMarketingMinute.com for details or join the mailing list.

What’s the difference between sales and marketing?

Essentially they are one and the same but they do have their differences. While marketing refers to basically everything you can do up until the customer reaches out to you, sales involves everything after that initial contact.

Both marketing and sales go hand in hand but are completely separate pieces. In fact, if marketing is done really well, it eliminates the process of sales completely. For example, if you create great content on your website, upload informational videos on YouTube, or get positive reviews online, people will approach you without you having to convince them to choose you.
This makes marketing far more important than sales as without it, you will not have customers to sell to. So, to sum up, sales is everything before customers make contact whereas marketing is everything after the customer makes contact.

This book makes writing ads easy!!!

Amazon Book Link

It has been an entire month of a show a day, every day leading up to MTE 2020. You guys have to come down and meet me there. I will be at the KECO booth on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. MTE week is something I always look forward to and I can’t wait to talk shop with you.

Today, I want to talk about a book that makes writing your ads easier. When you write any ad, your headline constitutes 80% of the power of your ad. This means that it doesn’t matter is it’s a short ad or a long sales copy, the headline makes a big difference between people checking it out or not.

The title of the book explains itself – Advertising Headlines That Make You Rich: Create Winning Ads, Web Pages, Sales Letters and More. It is written by David Garfinkel who is an excellent copywriter and also has a podcast for anyone interested in the subject. The book is on Amazon and costs just $10.39 and is a great choice for those who want to create amazing headlines. The headlines in the book can be used for any industry and come with numerous variations of a single proven headline.

An example is, “Give me 5 days, and I’ll give you the secret of learning any subject”. This headline can be transformed into; “Give me 45 minutes and I’ll have your drain running like new” or Give me 15 minutes and I’ll have you up and running on the World Wide Web” for a plumber and internet service provider respectively. There are examples for all types of businesses from florists to personal trainers. The book is also sort of a workbook as it allows you to come up with your own headlines using the proven headline as a base.

The headlines used in the book are proven to work successfully by copywriters around the world and can help you with advertising for your business. I use both the paperback and Kindle version of the book so that I am always prepared.

Your words matter.

It is important to remember that when you’re talking to your customers or your potential customers, your words matter a lot. It can be as simple as removing some negative words from your conversations.

An example of that is you can replace “No problem” with “Yeah, I can help you with that”. Although that is quite subtle, those small changes can paint a more positive picture to your customers. This language can not only be used while talking to a customer in person or on the phone, it can also be implemented in messages, emails, and texts.

There is another small, but vital mistake most of us make while talking to customers and that is referring to our business as PDR. There are only a handful of people who actually know what PDR stands for. It is something we need to focus on when talking to customers. Another acronym we should be avoiding in the business is RNI. While other dent repair professionals will understand what you’re talking about, your customers will not and quite obviously get confused.

The best way to go about this is to discuss everything with your customer in a language that is easily understood. Talk to them about how you would have to remove a few screws to get to a panel and reassure them that it can be put back together just the way it was.

One handy tip is to use “damage assessment” rather than a “free estimate”. The former gives people an idea of what you are going to do or check before they can get an estimate of their repair. Both phrases are basically the same, but “damage assessment” stands out from the rest which is a good way to boost your business.

Get in touch with me through Facebook or email and let me know the words you use when you talk to your customers. Go to DentRepair.com to get your tickets for the Mind Your Business seminar and learn how to promote your business.

Some ways to keep business rolling through these new times.

To kick things off this episode, I would like to apologize for the delayed upload. With all the COVID-19 chaos around, I am trying to keep things upbeat. I started a new Facebook group called Small Business Support and Think Tank and it is open to everyone in the small business world to join.

Yesterday I had a webinar there and had a panel of small business owners on as we discussed ways to keep business rolling through. It was a really upbeat and empowering two and a half hours which you guys should definitely check out. I’m sure you will be able to find some great ideas on there to help you with your business during this rather gloom and doom time.

Some of the best takeaways from the show include collaborating with other businesses and offering appointment-only repairs. Bottom line, let people know that you’re open for business because they don’t really need their cars right now and it gives customers the perfect opportunity to get the repairs they’ve been putting off for so long.

Stay Safe and Stay Busy.

3 Offline ways to market your PDR Business.

As the PDR business is continuously growing and the competition is becoming more and more fierce, online marketing is not as effective as it once was. This doesn’t mean that you should stop marketing your business online entirely – just try something different.

  1. Service Drives – For those technicians who service new car dealerships, you can get access to hundreds of cars that come into the dealership every day for service. Take this opportunity to talk to people and set up some gigs for yourself.
  2. Talk To Insurance Agents – Insurance agents look to lower the amount of claims and if you can take a handful of cases of their hands, you both gain.
  3. Television Advertising – Find a company that buys ad space and sells unsold space at a lower rate. While the hail season is slowly approaching, get some ads ready to go and target them to local areas. Email me at PDRMarketingMinute@gmail.com for more information about TV ads.

Take these tips and use them alongside your online marketing methods to ensure that your business gets the best exposure.

Introduction to email marketing

What is email marketing?

Basically, it means sending out emails to your customer base to offer them your services, get their reviews, or to just keep in contact with them.

The best thing to do is to have an email that is set up to your website rather than a general email id. It is a lot more professional that way and lets your customers learn more about your services. When you’re emailing a larger group of people, you can use a bulk emailing service like MailChimp.com.

You can use this email service to reach out to customers and offer them coupons or special discounts for repairs or other services. Whether you connect with them after a hail storm or some other weather conditions, the bulk email service is an excellent way to offer your customers the best deals.

Some of the other bulk emailing services are AWeber, ActiveCampaign, and Infusionsoft. They all offer great customer management systems including automated follow-ups and text message broadcast from the website. One of the most basic things to do when you use this bulk email service is to create a newsletter every month and send it out to your customers. This newsletter can include everything from tips and tricks on how to take care of your car to maintenance tips.

Email marketing is extremely affordable and easy to use which is why it is important to incorporate it into your business.

On this week’s episode of PDR Marketing Minute, Gene recaps the Mind You Business seminar that was held in Pittsburgh this weekend.

It all started on Friday night as they traveled to a sandwich shop in Downtown which had been around since 1933. On Friday morning, however, Kip Brooks began the seminar by discussing exciting sales tips and tricks. He also showed the audience how NLP or Neuro Linguistic Programming works and got people to sign up for his 6-week course. Later, in the afternoon, Gene took over and he showed the audience how his sales process works for PDR and also gave real-life examples of his sales where his shop always has customers coming in. The night ended in Gene’s shop where his wife, Melissa, cooked some delicious food for the guests.

On Saturday morning, Dave Streen showed the audience some useful stretching techniques to stay limber and active for longer periods of time. He also later spoke on the various tricks to reach out to customers and market their businesses. Gene goes on to say that if you use that portion of the seminar in your business, you will make 100 times more than what you paid to get into the seminar. The afternoon came to a close with Masterminding which is a technique based on Napoleon Hill’s studies and included groups of people coming together and developing new ideas.

Gene ends the episode by telling listeners that there would be another event in February based in Phoenix. Sign up for Gene’s email list and get his Review System or just find out more information at PDRMarketingMinute.com.

Let’s talk Facebook Ads part 3 or our 4 part series on online advertising.

Before we get into anything else, as discussed yesterday, you have to have a Google AdWords account because if people are looking for your business online, Google is the first place they will look. Unfortunately, one of the biggest hurdles the PDR business faces is that most people don’t even know that painless sent repair is a thing.

Facebook is probably the best ways to get yourself and your business out there and to let people know what PDR is all about. Everybody is on Facebook and they get most of their daily news from there. There are basically two types of ads you can put up on Facebook – a picture with a small amount of text or a short video.

Our smartphones can be used to create short, informative videos that can be uploaded to Facebook. These videos can redirect the people back to your website so that they can learn more about what you have to offer. While they are not as profitable as Google ads, Facebook ads are extremely cheap to setup. You need to have a Facebook business page and should test the waters by spending a small amount at first.

Get ready for the Mind Your Business seminar which will be hosted by myself, Kip Brooks, and Dave Streen a week after MTE at Adventure Tools in Orlando.

This week, Gene sends us a reminder to check our AdWords account. He has been working with some people and came across some errors that he brings to our attention. He advises listeners to check their settings and get them right, check their bids and not overpay for a search term, but most importantly, that they don’t overpay for terms that make absolutely no sense.

Google often upgrades your account and charge you more than you signed up for. Gene says he and other people are noticing that Google has changed the way their search results are being served up. You can see multiple AdWords ads at the top and then the Map listings follow them. The actual websites and organic listings have dropped extremely low and have become somewhat irrelevant. Gene encourages listeners to check their AdWords accounts properly and regularly to avoid these hindrances.

If you want to learn some interesting tips for AdWords, you can get tickets for Gene’s seminar in Pittsburgh on the 9th and 10th of November. On the second day, which is a Saturday, Gene plans on having a breakout session which will include AdWords. He will be helping out clients and attendees with some useful tips and tricks. Even if you wish to get better at sales, Gene says Kip will be at the seminar discussing some great processes around sales while he discusses his own system to sell PDR at a retail level.

You can find out more information about the seminar on the PDR Marketing Minute Facebook page or you can check out PDRMarketingMinute.com and sign up for the email list and get Gene’s Review System.

Keeping your MTE “high” going

During MTE, I, along with so many others get to talk PDR business and meet different people for 3 days. So much so, when you get home, you have ideas flowing and you should let that excitement go on.

One major change after this year’s MTE was that I now include my wife into a lot more than just the book keeping and other boring stuff. She now holds me accountable so that I don’t get too comfortable in what I am doing. You too should have someone hold you accountable so that you keep pushing yourself.

Another useful tip is to always take notes and brainstorm on those projects. This allows you to come back to those notes and move forward with any project that you have. If you don’t have a notebook or a pad, you can use the Notes feature on your mobile phone as it is always on you.

Something most of us take for granted is talking shop with other PDR buddies. You can talk to them every week to ensure that you’re up to date with everything going on around you in the world of PDR.

I am also working on a secret project and if you want to learn more about that, message me directly on Facebook – on my Gene Fetty page or through my cellphone number. So, keep the energy going and use the information from MTE to  keep building your PDR business.

Using Instagram

In today’s episode, we are joined by my daughter, Elena, who also happens to be my Instagram manager. Facebook is all the social media I need, but Instagram has billions of users and your PDR customers are on there as well. Being a visual business, Instagram is perfectly designed for the PDR world.

Elena shares some handy tips on how to properly post content on your Instagram page and how often she posts. We discuss the important points of Instagram and how a post can be used across a number of social media platforms. According to Elena, 2-3 posts a week is more than enough to keep customers aware of your business.

“Use a lot of hashtags” is one of the biggest tips Elena has to offer when it comes to posting on Instagram as well as tagging the city where your PDR business is based. You need to get on Instagram and connect with other technicians in the PDR business. It is easy to connect, talk, and share information with others through Instagram.

Check out KECOTabs.com for everything you need for glue pulling.

In the PDR Marketing Minute Podcast this week, Gene continues with the checklist for Basic Marketing Needs. Last week’s episode was all about the importance of creating a website for your business. Today, Gene discusses the second most important thing which is setting up a Google My Business listing account.

Setting it up is absolutely free and offers you a listing on Google for your business. It does, however, involve a bit of a setting up process. To begin, you must visit business.google.com and sign up. After signing up, you will receive a physical card with a numbered code inside. The code activates your listing. For those who do have a retail location, the card gets delivered to the location. For mobile services, like Gene’s, Google sends the card to a home address. Once received, you are required to enter the 5-6 digit code into the Google My Business website. For mobile services, you must check the checkbox which reads “I Provide Goods and Services At My Customers Location”. This process takes away the pin which would have been placed on your home in Google Maps and places it in your zip code with a well defined service area.

Gene goes on to discuss the rest of the checklist which requires confirmation of whether your website is a listed one. Another important thing to check is the NAP or Name, Address, and Phone Number. This information should be consistent with the information on your website. The business hours should also be mentioned because Google has recently started sending out emails before holidays which allow business owners to login and adjust their hours during holidays. You can even post to your Google My Business listing which lets your customers see newer content regularly.

Gene ends the episode by talking about the Advanced Skills Seminar which takes place in January in Orlando. He encourages listeners to sign up at PDRCollege.com for a great opportunity to make new friends and business contacts, and experience networking like never before. You can even sign up to Gene’s Review System by signing up to his email list at PDRMarketingMinute.com.

Today on PDR Marketing Minute, Gene continues with his Basic Marketing Needs with an in-depth look at Yelp. He also talks about how he took a break last week from the podcasts and decided to do a live Q&A on Facebook. If you missed the Q&A, you can check it out by searching for PDR Marketing Minute on Facebook. It covered more than an hour and surrounded a number of topics including creating a website, a Google My Business listing, and a Facebook page.

This week is all about Yelp and how important it really is to have your business listed on Yelp. Considered as an important source by Google, Yelp helped Gene reach the first page of Google within 48 hours. He further talks about Keith and Sal and how Yelp has helped them get a lot of business as well as reviews. Creating a Yelp account is similar to creating a Google My Business listing. You will need to enter your name, phone number, address, and business hours. The information you enter should be consistent throughout all your social media accounts. Gene explains that if you are mobile, it is best to mention your service area or if you have a dedicated shop, the address should be correct.

You should also upload photographs and ensure that your website link is correctly entered. If you are looking for reviews, Gene advises listeners to ask active Yelp users to leave reviews as Yelp removes any review from inactive users. Gene then thanks Charlie Melina for teaching him a simple hack to retain the best reviews. He explains that it is best to take a screenshot of every review and then upload it to your Yelp listing. Gene does warn listeners that once signed up, Yelp’s advertising team will try to reach out to invest in some advertising. If you’re not interested, he says that you should think of excuses to get off the phone. Gene ends this week’s episode by asking listeners to visit PDRMarketingMinute.com and sign up for his email list which will automatically send his Review System to your inbox which will teach you how to get more and better reviews.

This week on the PDR Marketing Minute Podcast, Gene continues to talk about how important it is to have a marketing plan for your PDR business. Rather than marketing for the sake of it, having a clearly set plan will help you market your services better. Over the next few episodes, Gene explains that he will be going through some of the core needs for proper marketing.

The first need, he describes, is having a website for your business. It is extremely important to have place where customers can go to actually learn about your business. There are a few things to remember when setting up a website though.

Probably the most important would be to have an easy to spell domain name. Substituting numbers for words or shortening words will only make the domain name more complicated and will drive customers away. The main purpose for your website is to get your potential customers to contact you. All your information, including email and phone number, should be on the website. A Call to Action button should jump out at the customers so that they can call, text, or email you.

It is vital to have content on your website, says Gene, as it is what customers look for. Written content is great for SEO purposes, but visual content in the form of videos is a must for any PDR business. You can add before and after pictures to showcase your repair work. It is also important to show both small damage and big damage. Lastly, your website should have your reviews on it. Take screenshots of your reviews from Facebook, Google, Yelp, and other sources and make a page on your website to display them for potential customers.

Gene concludes the episode by directing listeners to PDRMarketingMinute.com where they can sign up to his email list and get his Review System for free. He also talks about the upcoming PDR College Advanced Skills Seminar in Jan and how listeners can learn new techniques for fixing dents and connecting with people to market their businesses there.

3 RULES you must follow for successful PDR sales!

With these 3 rules, you should be able to make a lot more money in your PDR business.

Rule number 1 is to never go to check out a job or repair without a price guide. The price guide can be in the form of a physical printed copy or a digital one on Mobile Tech RX. The reason why you should always have a guide with you is because you don’t want to overestimate or underestimate a dent repair.

Rule number 2 is after you check the guide and set the estimate, you need to stop talking. More often than not, there will be an awkward silence but the person who speaks first after that silence is the one who will lose the negotiation. Let the customer hear the estimate and respond to it before you can explain to them why it would cost them that amount. This will let them know that what you’re offering is quality work rather than just another dent repair job.

Rule number 3 is you have to close the sale or at least, ask for the sale. After everything else, you need to hit the customer with, “So when would you like to book an appointment?” or “Tell me your budget so we can see what we can work with here”. You should be ending the conversation with a line about the sale, if not, you will not be making enough money.

Implementing these 3 rules will surely boost your business and help you close more gigs and earn more in the process as well.

Following up with leads and marketing your pdr business using email!

In today’s episode, we look at how you can not only use email marketing to keep in touch with your existing customers but to also follow up with those interested people who have requested for estimates as well as begin a conversation with them.

There are 2 ways to follow up after sales or market your services better:

After a person asks for an estimate, most of us don’t follow up through email. It is helpful to follow up with the person and remind them that you are the best PDR business in the area and that they should be coming to you. You can send them a 3 part email telling them the advantages of getting their hail damage repairs done through PDR which will not only educate them on the subject, but also let them know that you remember them and are looking forward to working on their car.

The other way to market your business through emails is to create a review system or a report that can be downloaded for free in exchange for their email ID’s by anyone visiting your website. With this, you can go back and email them and ask them if you can answer and questions or clear any doubts that they might have about PDR.

With these two tips and tricks, you can market your business better and reach a larger audience with something as simple as an email. You don’t even have to send it out as most of the email services offer automated emails which makes it even easier for you.

In this episode I talk about what the caveman test is and how to see if your website can pass the caveman test. The test essentially is the question could a caveman enter your website and grunt out what you do, get ahold of you, and find your phone number. Another way to think about this test with your site and really any message you put out there is could a 6th grader understand your messaging?
