What to Learn?

Learn Your Territory

With any home inspection company, effective marketing is all about understanding your territory and keeping up with the needs of your community. Every territory is different. Whether it’s a focus on suburban neighborhoods and larger houses or condominiums in more densely-populated areas, you will need to tailor your marketing strategy and materials to reflect your target demographic. The great thing about owning a home inspection franchise is the flexibility to adapt your services to local markets. Pillar To Post specializes our inspections as much as possible with a variety of added services. If your area is more suburban, with an abundance of swimming pools, you’ll want to tailor your marketing to emphasize swimming pool inspections services. If your area has a lot of apartment buildings or condominiums, you might choose to highlight your mold sampling services. To determine your target demographic, and make sure your potential consumers know your range of services, it’s essential to thoroughly research your territory and talk to people in the area.

Networking to Grow your Home Inspection Franchise

Networking is vital for success in any industry, but especially to those looking to own their first home inspection franchise. Pillar To Post franchisees must be comfortable meeting new people and forging connections with customers, realtors, and other industry experts. With these connections gained through successful networking, you receive more help from specialists and better leads for building your clientele. Engaging with your community is an excellent way to meet people and grow your business. When you own a home inspection services franchise, you must be prepared to invest in business cards, and keep them handy at all times. You need to be ready to kickstart a new relationship when it presents itself, whether with real estate agents, prospective homebuyers or anyone with whom you cross paths. Attend open houses, visit real estate offices, and take a vested interest in learning the territory inside and out. People will appreciate your enthusiasm and passion for the franchise and will be eager to work with you.
