Went to a realtors convention today and had a great time, great marketing time for us. The only problem I find with Home Inspection businesses is, we should all stop looking at our competitors (other H.I.'s) and saying things that we think will give ourselves more business, when what we are doing is giving more of a reason why realitors don’t like H.Inspectors. My thoughts are that if we stick together in promoting the industry, there is plenty of business out there that this industry could grow so much more, but with the gossip and trash talking of another Home Inspector and his qualifications it only hurts everyone related to this industry. It disturbs me to see articles in like the newspapers about an inspection gone wrong and another inspection company looks for recognition by stating what’s wrong with other inspectors or their qualifications.
Don’t get me wrong, an person that has little or no experience or training, and is not contantly training and jumps into the industry is not good for business either. I’m talking about qualified companies that are just looking to discredit another competitor.
I know it’s a dog eat dog world out there, I’m not going to help market my competitors ( that would be stupid) but I won’t drag someone’s name through the mud to gain more business. (I would not want anyone to do this to me, so why would I do this to another. And it just gives another reason why not to get a home inspection)
Good Luck fellow Inspectors and may God enrich your business through your integrity.
I am now off my soap box. Thank you
