Guys, how are we doing? Simon from Max June. So today help you with your business. Nobody knows you exist unless you tell them you exist. And the only way that happens is with some advertising. Now you hear about advertising go, oh wow, you know, you're a waste of money, waste of money. Unfortunately, in this day and age, Facebook, Instagram, what we are doing now, like YouTube with our Facebook, with our Instagram, you need to let people know you exist. You need to let people know that they're there, that you are there. If you don't, no one's gonna ring you. You know, you, you will have clients if you're a mechanical idiot or if you have your own shop, you know, you'll have some clients and you'll be able to let 'em know word of mouth. But unfortunately, the way the world works today, you need to tell people.
So we would say, have a Facebook, have an Instagram. If you're not clean on YouTube, don't worry. But Facebook and Instagram, definitely and invest some money in advertising. It does work, honestly, it works. So if you say, oh, I'll put 500 pounds a month into advertising, but you get 1500 pounds back from that advertising because you've got four clients at 300 pounds you know, or four, four clients, five clients at 400 pounds, say for example well that makes 2000 pounds and you've only spent 500 pounds. So you are making 1,500 pounds that you wouldn't have made had you not spent the money. Now we got 36,000 followers on Facebook, just under 10,000 on Instagram. We are growing this channel as well. The YouTube channel. I think we got 4,000 something or other. You know, and it takes time, but you have to post all the time.
Now, I'm not saying you have to sit in front of the camera like me. You certainly don't have to. And if you're not comfortable doing that, then don't worry. But take a picture of the card that you are that you are tuning at the time. Take a picture with the, with the, with the device in the car. Tell people in the description what you're doing. You don't have to be on camera personally, it helps, but you don't have to be. If you can take a picture of the car and you can explain what you're doing at the same time, post it on Facebook, post it on Insta Post all the time, as much as you possibly can. Yes, it's an aggravation. Yes, it's not the most fun thing in the world unless you like it. I'm not a massive social media freak.
You know, if, if, to be honest, if I didn't have businesses, I probably wouldn't have social media. Cuz I just don't think people care what I do or what I was eating. But for the business, people do care for the business. People are interested because they don't know what we do, who we are, what we're about, unless we tell them. And the only way we can tell them is through video at the moment because everybody sits there on their phone swishing through videos. And if you catch five people out of 500, you know, we're talking like 1%. If you catch 1%, that
Is five people at 300 pounds, that's 1500 pounds you would not have had. All you've got to do is just post on Instagram and Facebook. That's it. Like, there's no magical, it will look demeaning to start with and you'll look, oh, well I've only had two likes. It takes time for stuff to happen. But if you are in, if, if you're in it for the long haul, you know, within a year, if you start and you do it every day for a year, just one post, one picture, and you can re-share it between Instagram and Facebook, one post, one thing per day, you will see at the end of that year that that has made a huge difference. So if you want to get into the industry, if you're thinking about tuning, let people know that you do it. That's it. There's no magical solution. Just let people know. Alright? So I hope that helps like, and subscribe. Don't forget, help with our channel. And we'll come back with some some more hopeful, hopefully some more helpful advice for you guys. See ya.
