Now that you have everything in place, it’s time to start promoting and marketing your credit consulting business.
Call other local credit repair businesses to get an idea of the services they offer and the types of fees associated with these services. In our own PRO software we give a breakdown of suggested fees. Some credit repair specialists don’t charge fees at all. For mortgage brokers and auto dealers the reward can be greater in generating leads and closing more loans. Go through all the information you can find, decide on your fees and services, and get ready to advertise.
Dress professionally and meet with local merchants who deal with financing: mortgage brokers, real estate agents, auto dealers, etc. If you’ve signed up for a Client Portal account and have a website, this will be a plus. Many mortgage and real estate professionals will require you to have a portal and a site before referring clients to you.
Create flyers, brochures and business cards. Give a brief description about your services and contact information. We already provide these in the Credit-Aid Pro Bonus materials. Post flyers everywhere you can. You may also want to place small ads for your services in local newspapers, church newsletters and periodicals.
Offer friends and family your credits repair counseling services for free, and then ask them for a letter of recommendation. This will quickly help to build your client base. Word of mouth is the very best kind of advertising.
You may want to consider giving credit repair and debt seminars or classes to teach people how to help themselves. Give talks at high schools and colleges about ways to stay out of debt. The students will go home with the information you have given them, plus your business card or brochure and tell their parents, who could end up as your next clients. We have many customers who give seminars and buy our software in bulk to resell or give to attendees.
