Marketing Your Private Investigator or Process Server Business

These are the stats from one of my sales channels for January 2017. You can see (hopefully) that 20% of total sales came from a mobile device and new buyers make up 93% of total shoppers.

What does this mean for you? If you do not have a website or your website is not mobile optimized, you might be missing out on 20% of your customers. Too, did you know that Google has been rumored to down rank sites that are not mobile optimized?

To Sell or Not To Sell Your Judgment

Posted by Christine Burke on Monday, June 6, 2016, In : judgment recovery asset investigations 


I recently took a phone call from a potential client (and actually had an email from another) asking if we purchased judgments. These people had been awarded a judgment and were waiting to collect. They possibly did not know how to recover their money or were tired of dealing with it and wanted someone else to take care of it.  Before I answered their question, I provided them with a little background about me and how and why I do business like I do.
