  2. It’s been said that you create a first impression in the first 30 seconds of greeting someone. At MarketSmart, we believe the same is true for websites. Just as you would critique a potential employee in an interview process, a visitor does the same when visiting your site. You have about 30 seconds to capture their interest. Here are five tips to make the right impression on your company website: 1. Be clear about what you do and how you do it differently. If a visitor doesn’t understand what you do and the value of choosing your company, how can they know if they need your service? Featured service “buttons,” usually photos, with brief descriptions, is a common way to highlight what your company offers. 2. Intuitive navigation. Make navigating your site simple so visitors will know how to find the information they’re looking for. 3. High quality images. Use large, high-quality photos of your latest equipment. Some visitors may not know the difference between a rotator and a rollback. This is a good way to show them. 4. Keep it brief. Introduce your company with a welcome statement. It’s a great way to present a brief description of what your company offers. Place the company history on its own page. 5. Contact info. Be certain your phone number, email and mailing address are clearly visible. The visitor could move on because they can’t find a way to contact you. “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.” – Will Rogers View the full article and more on TowTimes.com

  4. As Ohio lawmakers consider a ban on the state’s towing companies using “spotters” to when removing or impounding illegally-parked vehicles, some Ohio towing companies say the impact would be minimal as the practice is not widely used. Under House Bill 113, towing companies that violate the ban would face a third-degree misdemeanor, a fine up to $500 and 60 days in jail. See the full report here.

  11. Here are four tips for coordinating your print marketing materials. 1) Create your marketing items in unison. For example, if you’re creating a brochure, maybe update your business card to match. This helps keep your branding unified and enables you to see how the design will work on other marketing items of different sizes and shapes. 2) Be consistent. When creating your design, make sure that that the colors, fonts and symbols, as well your logo, are consistent on all your marketing items. 3) Website. Translate your website design to your print materials. It could be confusing for a prospective customer to see a different look online than in print. If you’re not happy with your website design, maybe it’s time to update. 4) Materials. When creating your design in print, keep in mind that there will be a difference in how each item will look next to each other because of the material it’s printed on. The paper stock used for a business card, for example, is different than for a brochure. View the full article and more on TowTimes.com

  13. I’m having a wonderful time watching my granddaughter Izzy. She just turned one and is so stinking cute you can’t get mad at her when she’s being sassy. I guess because I’m with her for extended periods of time I notice so much more how she’s growing and learning — just like my own two children did — but I’m not sure if I enjoyed seeing the milestones in my children’s growth and development in this way. One of the best things I notice are the looks of surprise and Izzy’s smiles and laughter when she learns something new — the look of “I did it!” How often have you pulled up to a challenging recovery scene and as your brain is beginning to put together a mental checklist of what needs to be done, and then figuring out how it needs to get done, you have an uneasy feeling of not being sure if what you’ve planned will work? As you’re assessing and imagining the “this will happen if we rig this way,” or “this will happen if we winch this way,” you have law enforcement, employees and others at the scene watching and waiting for you to decide what to do (and you had better hurry it up.) As you start the recovery, you have feelings of stress, anxiety and perhaps even fear. There are lots of factors that could go wrong, even if you’ve done everything you thought should be done for safety, and are using the best equipment available. Do you keep your fingers crossed? Or say a little prayer? Well, planned things can and do go wrong, but oh what a feeling when a difficult recovery goes as planned. You feel elated and relieved. You think: “I did it!” With whatever you’re learning or working at, I’m hoping you all have an “I did it” kind of day. View the full article and more on TowTimes.com

  16. TRAA Press Release: FMCSA is considering a pilot program to allow drivers under 21 to operate commercial motor vehicles in interstate commerce. As FMCSA Administrator Raymond Martinez outlined during TRAA’s Legislative Action Day in March, allowing qualified CDL drivers under 21 may get more young professionals into the industry and elevate some of the driver shortage. Several states already allow 18 year olds to qualify for a CDL license to drive within state borders (intrastate) only but federal law prohibits them from driving across state lines (interstate) until they are 21. Insurance for under 21 drivers may be attainable under a number of established conditions available in most states. Note, FMCSA’s pilot program is independent of the DRIVE-Safe Act (H.R. 1374) currently in the subcommittee on highways and transit. FMCSA is seeking public input on their proposed pilot program. The TRAA Cabinet and the TRAA Legislative Advocacy Network® (TRAA LAN®) are asking for comments in support of the pilot. To view the docket and to make comment, please visit Docket ID FMCSA-2018-0346 and select “COMMENT NOW.” If you need help, see the press release here . Not sure what to say? Email us for talking points. The comment period closes Monday, July 15, 2019. Comment now View the full article and more on TowTimes.com

  20. Clinton Simmons, 30, of Lebanon, Ind., A repairman working to fix a broken down truck was struck and killed on Interstate 74 Wednesday afternoon. State police say 30-year-old Clinton Simmons of Lebanon was called to repair a tire on a box truck on I-74 near SR 39 in Hendricks County. As Simmons finished the repair and started to put his tools back in his truck, a semi struck the box truck, pushing it into Simmons' vehicle and striking the victim. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say the semi driver, identified as Steven Sanchez of Indianapolis, may have fallen asleep before leaving the road and striking the box truck. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash. Sanchez was flown by helicopter to St. Vincent Hospital for treatment. The driver of the box truck was not injured, police said. Visitation will be held on Friday, May 17, 2019, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Myers Mortuary, Lebanon, Indiana. Funeral Services are to be held on Saturday, May 18, at 10 a.m. at the funeral home in Lebanon. Tow Times Article Link Facebook Page Link
