Still, sometimes a consumer will just up and ask “How do you justify charging more than the other guy?” It’s nice to have a quick response that the consumer accepts as meaningful: “Because I’m a Certified Master Inspector.”
Gee I also see some strange things done by those who lead our country.
This just shows not all are perfect in every thing.
I am glad at least they do ask.
I am more concerned with those EXPERTS??? who do not ask.
Certified Master Inspector sells itself, by itself. They are the most powerful three words in our industry when it comes to marketing directly to consumers.
Don’t let your business decisions be clouded by… what… some kind of roof bracing comment from some other inspector in another state or something. Focus on you, your business, and conquering your market with whatever weapons are available to you. If you had kids to feed, you’d understand. Forget the big war, your war is your local market share battle.
Yes I agree.
But I also think a person in this industry should know it is wrong to post filthy pictures .
I also think some of these experts post lies and attack others instead of trying to help and improve all.
So if our Hommie needs help lets bring him up too a better level instead of ridiculing him.
The industry always will have some who lack proper training .
They soon get weeded out .
NICK is in the process of removing many who are not still in the industry.
Great discussion it might help some to improve .
The best I can do is try and ignore those who abuse the system.
I disagree. CMI is the investment that keeps on feeding your kids.
George, I’m so convinced that CMI works and will make you lots of money (I listen to CMIs tell me it works every day)… I’ll make you a deal so that we can get CMI working for you: Apply for the designation, but don’t pay on page 3 of the application (just stop at the bottom of page 2)… and I’ll personally make your payments until you’re convinced that being a Certified Master Inspector is making you more money than $41.66/month. Once you’re convinced, you let me off the hook and make the last of the payments yourself. You will be a CMI for life (MICB charges no annual dues) without taking on any risk that it might not be profitable. If you are thrilled, you need not pay me back ever, give the money to your kids. Deal?
