Go Mobile - A Responsive Website
Your auto body repair website needs to be prepared for anything! Well, in this case it needs to be prepared to be scrolled through on a mobile device. A responsive design for your website will ensure anyone on the go will be able to get the information they need. Additionally, consider a custom mobile app for your business. This keeps your customers in the loop and rewards them for being loyal to your business, all while taking up valuable real estate on their home screen.
Show Off on Social Media
Social media channels are free platforms where your customers can connect with your business. Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are perfect for showing off your quality of work while building community around your shop.
Maintain Directory Listings
Yelp, Google My Business, Facebook, YellowPages, and other directory listing sites can be wonderful assets, unless they have inconsistent information about your business.
