After I completed my IR Certification training in building science, I looked at alternatives to promote the service. I am not a big fan of magnetic door signs so I opted to go with something that would advertise my business in a way that someone could have the time to write down my contact information.; principally when I stop at traffic signals or they are following on my bumper. This is what I and the creative sign company people came up with.
All in all, this was about $375 total for the rear window and the tail gate. I figured one inspection would cover the cost. These were my pictures from inspections I had done in the past.
I tried to arouse curiosity more than have a rolling explanation of what IR was all about and it has paid off more than ten fold so far.
Just last Saturday, I was on the expressway coming through Atlanta, returning from an inspection and received a call to my cell phone, which is on the tail gate, from a husband and wife who were following me. I sold a $500 inspection which I did this past Tuesday including the IR service.
I get a lot of questions as to whether or not the rear window sign blocks my view so I included below a shot from inside the truck. When I’m driving, I never know it’s there.
The only downside of this is that I can’t lower the rear window because it will damage the sign so I had to pull the fuse that controls that.
