If you have been looking for a well respected line of cars with a beautiful executive design, then the Mercedes Benz range is perfect for you. With luxury business interiors but potential to fit your family in some of the models, the brand has managed to provide something useful and comfortable (as well as imminently desirable) for every buyer.So what model is best for you?If you are a smart and sophisticated business person, then you probably want a car that compliments you and your life perfectly. To make a huge first impression, a fancy yet sophisticated sports car will no doubt do the trick. Keeping the design refined is key to not looking over-the-top, and so a SL-Class roadster will no doubt be perfect, whether you choose the basic option with a sporty 3.0litr V6, or opt for massive power with the V12 SL AMG 65. If the looks are a little too subtle for you, the equally powerful yet much more dramatic SLR roadster will suit – even if it does completely break the bank at £325k!If flashing the cash isn’t on your agenda, then it may be worth opting for a new or used Mercedes Benz with a little less bling and a tad more refinement. You probably know that spending hours travelling in your car each week makes it worth spending a little more to get that extra comfort and beautiful car interior. If you still want that convertible feeling, the CLK Cabriolet is the more adult older sister of its sportier siblings. For a saloon, however, your best smart yet sumptuous option is probably the CL-Class, with its designer good looks and incredibly luxurious vibe. If you want to look even more corporate, the GL-Class will be an even more sensible choice.Of course, if you have plenty of money to spare when buying your new or used Mercedes Benz, then you can opt for the wonderful CL-Class, with its AMG sports package, and the butch yet elegant lines that actually resemble a Bentley far more than a Merc.Finally you may be buying a car that will suit your family well, where the dogs will fit in the back along with the buggy and all the other paraphernalia that goes along with bringing up your dependants. In this case the best Used Mercedes Benz for you is the chunky yet handy B-Class, or even the more luxurious E-Class. These will hold everything you could want them to, but won’t look huge or ridiculous, and will definitely be work friendly. If you are a little more rural and want more power beneath the bonnet, then an SUV may be a great alternative with just as much family friendly room – but not as many eco-credentials.There is a model for everyone, from the small to the big and everything in between. Even better, the Mercedes Benz range comes in all sorts of engine sizes for all sorts of drivers – with a little effort, you should definitely be able to find the perfect car for you within their collection.
Every business is feeling the pressures of our rough economy right now. Don’t let the economy keep you from success at your own franchise business. This is a hard time, but as a business owner you will need to keep positive and find new ways to improve. There are many ways you can improve, but you need to get the customers there first. So, if your auto body franchise needs more business, here are some ways that you can use to generate more business for your auto body franchise.First of all you need to advertise for your franchise business in some way. There are many different ways to get the word out about your business. Your franchisor most likely offers some form of advertising, but you can also beef it up locally. You could contact a local radio station about getting an advertisement about your franchise location on it. You can also contact the local newspaper about getting an advertisement in it as well. You may even want to make some flyers to pass out or hang at public locations advertising your business. All of these are simple and cost effective.Next you may want to offer a promotional deal. If possible you should offer a deal of some sort. For example, when someone gets paintless dent removal service they receive a certain amount off of auto detailing service or whatever you think will work and will also work for your budget. Remember, you may be giving them 10.00 off but they are spending more on the additional service that they weren’t going to get in the first place. People like DEALS!!!!!If possible you should try to work with a charitable organization. You could get something worked out that a portion, even if small, of work done is donated to a reputable charitable organization.
