Just got my Sept.issue of Working RE, they have a section now called “Home Inspectors CLOSER LOOK”.


In an article called Business Dos and Dont’s they quoted a thread from “the other place” where the question was “What are the three best and worst things you did to get your business started”. One post quoted is from a CL, who stated “Join NACHI. They are by far the most helpful for new inspectors.”


I think we can thank Brian from “the other place” for giving us the exposure.

Interesting that you would post that Will, I just got that issue and noticed the same thing. I am really wondering who CL is. I could not think of one person there that was named CL.


You are talking about Brian Hannigan, correct?

I am really surprised that he sends it to me! ![icon_lol.gif](upload://zEgbBCXRskkCTwEux7Bi20ZySza.gif)

Hey guys,


I think they left out the real initials and threw in "CL" as a cover up and it stands for Closer Look (the article). I sure do love the advertisement though. Go get'em CL.

Just my two pesos.

Brian and Hann Tech Marketing having nothing to do with Working RE. Brian is outside Los Angeles.


Working RE is in San Diego.


The editor and publisher of Working RE, David Brauner, does post on www.inspectionnews.com.


Look at Page 2 of the magazine.


There's over 100 posts on Inspection News that mention NACHI.

It's amazing what you can find on the internet in just a few minutes with just a little information to start from.



Here’s the actual post on IN.

Three top things that I did to grow my business in the first year.
#1. Join NACHI - They are by far the most helpful for new inspectors.
#2. Spent most of my time on marketing, meeting Realtors, attending Board of Realtor meetings, etc.
#3. Found a niche--in my area there was a need for an inspector who could provide top-quality proferssional services. That is how I market myself.

If you don't get Working RE, you can visit the web site at www.workingre.com or e-mail David Brauner at dbrauner@workingre.com

Some of us got on his subscription list for free when he first started the magazine.

Subscriptions now cost about $30 bucks a year for 4 issues.

Matter of fact, maybe Nick can contact them and get a reduced rate for NACHI members so he can increase his subscriptions and thus increase his advertising reach and his advertising income.

In any case, it's great to see the NACHI name out there.

Erby,


You are really right on top of things, hey.
Thanks for the info. I'm going to apply right now. It would be nice to set up an account with "Working RE" for NACHI discounts. Maybe Nick can look into this.

Erby,


Nice work in breaking my cover, lol. It is good to see NACHI getting some credit for helping the new inspector. Joining NACHI was an important step for me in growing my business and I want to help other inspectors by spreading the word. I also want to encourage others who have been helped by NACHI to speak up and spread the word about your experience.

Ron
