BROOKFIELD, Wis. — Home inspectors who want to maximize profits from their hard work can benefit from the information available in the new book, “Marketing & Operating a Profitable Home Inspection Business.” The updated home inspection publication, released by OnCourse Learning’s home inspection training school, American Home Inspectors Training, covers everything home inspectors need to know.

“If home inspectors want to generate business and set themselves apart from the competition,  this book is one they’ll refer to time and again,” said Jared Schulze, channel marketing manager for Real Estate – AHIT. “Marketing is one of the most important aspects of a successful home inspection business. The tips in this book will teach home inspectors how to get in front of real estate agents and what to say to them to secure office presentations. This is the information every home inspector needs to get the phone to ring and book inspections.”

Written by Kevin O’Malley, a residential real estate expert, the book includes tips on how to:

  • Use social media to attract customers.
  • Meet real estate agents and get referrals.
  • Learn meeting preparation tips.
  • Hire professional, quality inspectors.
  • Manage calls and scheduling issues.
  • Present yourself in a professional manner.
  • Find additional revenue sources.

O’Malley said home inspectors cannot forget about marketing their business just because they have a certain number of jobs.

“You just have to be smart and creative enough in your marketing to compete,” O’Malley said. “If the market tails off or starts to decline and others are marketing heavily, those who aren’t marketing will lose.”

The book can be purchased at the OnCourse Learning website.
