    Want to know the biggest mistake detailers, window tint installers & PPF installers make in their business?


    So you want to start a detailing, window tint or paint protection film business or grow your existing business – that’s the first step. There are many ways and directions that you can do each of those things but wouldn’t it be easier if you could get that information and just zero out the noise and unhelpful information? That’s what our One Day Business Class is designed for.

    If you are jumping into the auto detailing industry and starting a new business – this training will contain essential information for you as a new business owner to help you avoid costly mistakes.

    If you are operating an existing detailing, PPF or window tint business – this training is also for you because our training contains information on what tools you can utilize to leverage your available resources and scale your operation.

    Things you will learn while you are in this class
    (these are just broad sweeping topics, there is much more)

    What type of business do you want to run?

    There are several different styles of auto detailing businesses, we can help explain what those are and what is a good fit for you.

    Will your market support your business vision?

    Every area in the country has different demographics, income levels & communal settings all of which play a large role in what type of business can be supported there.

    What do I charge?

    This is the most common question that is asked amount new business owners. The answer is that there are many variables but there is only one calculation.

    What tools do I need?

    This is another very common area that detailers are often caught up in. Seeing Youtube Detailers show off their endless process and tool selection creates a mental issue of comparing yourself to them. Hint – you don’t need all of it.

    Where should I focus my marketing efforts?

    There is a large problem with our industry in that people will focus growth and marketing efforts in places that are extremely counterproductive. We will go over the areas that you should be focusing on and what has shown to have the most impactful ROI.

    How do I sell detailing, ceramic coatings & paint protection film?

    This is the largest issue that everyone has across the business world. Selling is the most important part of this entire process and you need to be selling to your clients and customers with a certain goal in mind. HINT – IT’S NOT ABOUT MONEY. 

    How do I hire the right staff?

    Hiring and keeping a bad employee or staff member can cost your business thousands and thousands of dollars. We can help you weed out those employees and help you focus your time and efforts on finding and growing the ones that want to grow with you.

    Automating your tasks!

    As your business grows, it becomes essential to ensure that you are being efficient and spending your effort in the right areas. Tasks like follow-up, phone services, invoicing, booking appointments, text messages can all be automated to save you time!

    Create another version of yourself!

    Entrepreneurial cloning is a methodology that you follow when you want to run a business but not touch every task yourself. You set standards in place to ensure that tasks are completed each time, the same time, the same way.

    There are many more items covered but these are the biggest.
