I'm sure you know this, but let's get it out the way right up front. First, make sure you have the basics covered:
- You have professional-looking home inspection website that showcases your credentials and services, with an easy way for people to get in touch with you
- You have a logo, business cards, and brochures
- You have a commitment to networking with the people that can bring you business (realtors, builders, bankers, Chamber of Commerce)
- Your business is listed correctly in directories, such as Google My Business and other industry resources
- You always ask for referrals
I'm going to assume you've got that down, and you've set up your social media (Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn) in order to get your message out. Now let's leverage all those assets and platforms and add in some video marketing for home inspectors.
