IGA website plan

Trade body has idea to help garages get online

Published:  03 September, 2012

FOLLOWING a recent report that a majority of independent garages don't have any form of online presence, the RMI's Independent Garage Association (IGA) has announced a plan to help garages build a website.

The IGA says that the service will be a benefit of being a member and the only additional cost they will incur will be a minimal sum for hosting site and purchase of the address which they will remain the owners of.  This will still cost less than placing an advert in the local press and will raise their profile substantially.

IGA chief Stuart James said: "The IGA is committed to ensuring that all its members are able to take full advantage of internet marketing. This is why we made the decision to offer this new scheme. We can now ensure that members have the tools to promote their businesses to the best of their ability."
