Mission Statement

Jason, the owner of Texas Drivetrain Performance, wanted to emphasize the online parts sales portion of his business while continuing to offer top tier transmission services to the DFW area.

Ecommerce is a very competitive space, but the mission was clear. Push online store sales through the roof using the most advanced SEO (Search Engine Optimization) tactics available today.

Simultaneously, we wanted to supplement online sales with in-person sales to the transmission shop.

Objectives

At Boosted Lab, we don’t just dive in and hope for the best. While that may work, it’s not very effective and it’s not a good use of resources.

Instead, we map out everything first. In order to grow your business, we need to fully grasp the technology stack, the competitive landscape, goals, and steps on how to get there.

This way we guarantee the fastest and healthiest ROI in the business. Your hard-earned money should be working for you.

Our objective is to build your business using the most effective strategies available today.

Phase 1

Analyze

This is by far the most overlooked step in the process. Sure, we can skim the surface and understand most of the situation rather quickly using our own tools. But your return on investment wouldn’t be as nice. Does 20% gains sound good? Is that going to be exciting? Probably not.

We prefer 100%, 250%, and 500%+. How’s that for exciting?

1. Understand the goals by asking the right questions and gathering data
  1. What is the most important goal right now?
  2. What are your top products and services?
  3. Can you sell 2x as much of them? 5x? 10x? Do you have enough supply or staff to service the increased demand?
  4. Are there issues with supplies or staff currently?
  5. Which products and services are of least concern (i.e. lowest profit margin, phasing out, etc)
  6. Are there any competitors you are monitoring?

  4. How do we beat the competition while optimizing resources – time, money, energy?

In this case, it was site layout and architecture. The current website was very difficult to navigate and the user journey was cumbersome, to put it nicely.
