In today's video, I'm going to be talking about what I believe to be the number one reason that most new PDR text fail. So if you're just starting off in the industry and you want to become a PDR technician, stay tuned.
Now it's sad but true that we do have a high failure rate in the PDR industry in terms of new students becoming successful paid PDR technicians. So I've spoken to a few different PDR techs some students as well as doing my own research, and I've come up with what I believe to be the most common cause for the high failure rate in the PDR industry.
So as most people discover the PDR industry, they quickly learn that it can be a long, drawn out process from start to finish, learning how to remove dents to a high standard. Now, if you intend to run a business removing dents, of course, 100% you need to know how to remove a dent. But I find that there are so much focus and emphasis on the physical side of the training on how to remove them that most people overlook the big part of running a successful business, which is the business itself.
So I quite often see online, particularly in some of the popular Facebook groups, technicians that are selling all of their tools. Now when you look into this, usually there are one or two year tech. They've invested a lot of money into some high quality tools. They've picked the timing to learn the basics of how to remove a dent. But as they're starting to run it as their own PDR business, they're realizing they can't make ends meet. It's not adding up financially. So sadly, we see a lot of these new technicians given up PDR altogether, selling their tools and going back to what they did originally. It's a safe bet it's a safety net rather than going into the unknown.
Now, I believe that if they understood more about business and how to create leads and how to run a successful business, they would not be given up. They've already invested money in the tools they've already invested the time and learn how to remove dents so so many people don't take the time to invest in themselves and learn how to start, create, launch and run a successful business.
Now, if you've been looking into PDR, you'll see it's a fascinating industry. There's so much opportunity. There's so many unknowns. It's developing all the time, and there's huge potential to grow and scale your business. But it really does involve in you investing in yourself and learning how to run a business itself.
So one of the things that I try and focus on within the learned PDR online training hub is that pathway from taking a complete new being right through to being a paid technician. Now I can refer to this as the PDR path.
We start with the very basics of how to remove a dent, and we go through step by step to medium and more complex repairs. But the whole time we're starting at fort process of what our business is going to look like, how it's gonna work for us and how we can build it around our existing lifestyle.
We start by going through website design, social media platforms, lead generation and converting those into sales. Now that is a huge part of being successful. It's all about how to generate enough work to run a successful PDR business now If you'd like to learn a little bit more about what I'm talking about today, you can reach out to me directly.
