Commercial Property Inspection Business Seminar

The commercial property inspection business isn't an inspection business at all... It's a management business.  In the same way a general contractor building a house uses subcontractors to do the plumbing and wiring, a commercial property inspector also hires and manages specialized subcontractors to help perform the inspection.
 
This concise and fast-paced business course will show you exactly how to start, market and manage a profitable commercial property inspection company.  This is not one of those overpriced "5 days of war stories" presentations or a technical component inspection course.  This is a working, business success, legal issues, and marketing seminar.

  • Nick,  I cannot tell you how jazzed I am after the World Marketing tour last night in Topeka. I woke up this morning with tons of ideas and ways to improve my company.   The information and tips and the door prizes blew away my expectations-that meeting was worth way more than $99.  For the first time in three years I am actually excited to work on my website again.  Cannot thank you enough and look forward to you passing through here again. – Peter Sniderman, Bi-State Properties
  • Well i couldn’t resist – Nick is doing a world tour and i showed up at the first two meetings in Kansas.  Nick did not disappoint… i continue to see him give more free stuff away and not selling anything while helping all of those that showed up over and over.  Every thing was discussed from Stay Back Signs, Brochure and Logo design – done for free for members, materials and tools for inspections, Unique selling points – over and over again, the 10,000 honor guarantee, Call Me Now button – truly brillant, incredible SEO tips, and so much more.  Nick was kind enough to allow me to share some on Brochure Makeovers.  Nick also pulled apart 3 to 4 websites and gave incredible advice on how to improve them and turn them into selling machines.  If the World Tour is coming even within a few hundred miles of you – don’t miss it – be there and learn how to get more business – immediately.  If we are both lucky – i might even get to say Hi to you. – Mike Crow

  • I just left the InterNACHI marketing world tour that came to Dallas. It was without question, the most unbelieveable presentation. I have never seen so much collateral, got so many internet tips, and great marketing ideas. Nick doesn’t hold back anything. He shares it all. The thing is I can’t figure out how he does it. It’s awesome to have someone so passionate about what they do. Thanks Nick. – Larry Wallace.
  • Had a great time last night! I feel like I got more than my money’s worth for sure! A TON of information, handouts, AND a $80 5.11 Tactical Vest I had been eyeballing online for awhile. I will be joining soon and look forward to future events! – Michael Sloane
  • Great job Nick! I attended the meeting in Dallas last night. I was very impressed with the amount of information shared that will help many different aspects of our business. Everyone in attendance seemed to have enjoyed the evening and gained the as much as I did. Even though it was a large crowd I don’t feel anyone felt slighted as a result. There was a lot of interaction with open discussions and great ideas for improving our marketing strategies to increase business. Nick reviewed at least a dozen plus web pages and we all found ways to improve our own. I brought a fellow inspector friend that is not an InterNACHI member and he walked out thanking me for inviting him and very impressed with the evening. He now plans on joining InterNACHI. – Phil Elliott
  • Nick, A great night was had by all. I agree with everything Phil said sums things up well. May have been a bunch of grey hair in the place but at least you kept us from falling asleep at eight. Anyone who doesn’t attend one of these meetings is loosing out, great information and interreaction by everyone. Keep up the good work. – Gary Baldridge.
  • Nick, I want to thank you for your time last night.  I left last night feeling inspired and excited. Thanks! – Jeff Bowman.

  • I attended the Marketing Tour n San Francisco on Monday, 9/24. Although, I have been in business for 8 years, I now have a list of at a dozen tasks tasks to work through that are low cost and will make my marketing budget and efforts more effective.  For me, this may be the best 4 hours and $99 I have ever spent. We kept moving, each presenter spoke to my needs as a small businessman. I am now considering refreshing my service offerings with a recall check, updated website, and better marketing materials.  This seminar re-kick-started my enthusiasm for my business, industry, and interNachi.  Way to go, Nick, Ryan, and Mike!

It was the best marketing presentation I’ve seen in several decades. The information was spot on, useful and entertaining. I actually witnessed some very creative problem solving in the marketing arena.  Anyone who’s thinking of attending at any of the concert locations should sign up as soon as possible. If you’re looking for technical information on how to improve your inspection this isn’t the concert for you. If you’re looking for new and better and more creative ways of implementing your business model through servicing more and better customers then this is a presentation you don’t want to miss.  Nick shows a high degree of experience in analyzing real estate transactions by breaking them down into the simplest components, the basic elements and clearly communicates clever ways of approaching, contacting and communicating with a customer who needs your service now.  This is an honest and refreshing series of marketing approaches that will positively impact your bottom line. – Chuck McKiel.

  • Thanks to Nick, Mike and Nathan for information that will guide the new inspector in the right direction. Even if it means redoing the business card and brochure and developing a new web site.  Hopefully following the guidance of these guys will help the business grow. Dave Hackett.
  • I want to thank InterNACHI for last nights Inspectorboost Marketing world tour event in Morristown, New Jersey. It was worth the trip. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to increase their inspection business and improve on their marketing/advertising material. Nick was terriffic. The course was 4 hours, but we went overtime, 4-1/2 hours and everyone stayed, so interesting.  Thanks Nick, looking forward to another if you choose to do so. – Henry Scheyer.
  • I just got home from the marketing world tour in Philadelphia. I had a great time, and I’m sure the marketing tips I learned will prove invaluable. Thanks, guys! – Mike Shoenfelt.
  • I just wanted to take a moment and thank Nick, Nathan, and Mike for ALL of the great information they shared last night at the event in Philadelphia. The tips and fresh ideas for marketing were invaluable. I will be very busy for quite a while trying to implement as many as possible. Over All GREAT EVENT!!! – Joseph Coyle.
  • Get all your friends to go. Just got back from Inspector Boost in Washington. Great stuff and learned a lot. So tell everyone you like and those you don’t keep it a secret. LOL – Alan Grubb.
  • Just spent over 4 hours on the road there and 4 hour at the seminar and another 4 hours for the trip back.  Thanks Nick and Nathan. If members are not taking advantage of this they have no one to blame but themselves if their business is lacking. There was great information right out of the gate.  All the tools for success are right here and so many are free for the taking. If you have a tour stop coming near you I highly recommend you doing something for your business and attend.  Make sure you man up and have them evaluate your website if you attend. It is worth it. – Troy Pappas.
  • I agree, well worth the money and the 2 1/2 hr trip. – Ronald Rusnock.
  • Thanks to Nick and Nate I have plenty to do for the next few weeks. I was really impressed with their out-of-the-box marketing ideas. They also gave me some great ideas on how to make my website more effective and dynamic. I highly recommend this seminar to both new and seasoned veterans who are looking to take their businesses to the next level. Good job, guys! – Ann. Lyon.
  • Nick and Nate’s marketing presentations were relaxed, engaging, offering concrete, thoughtful suggestions to improve telephonic and personal contact, as well as web page optimization. To re-enforce their presentation Nick and Nathe offered to critique and analyze willing participants’ web pages for the benefit of the owner and all in attendance. This alone was worth the ticket price.  Highly recommended for those seeking expert marketing advice to entice, enhance your client base and answer your new client’s lingering question: why should I hire you? – Bill Roy
  • I just came back from attending the Inspector Boost World Tour. I’m a new inspector and questioned if it would be worth my time to travel the two and a half hour drive. Despite hitting a deer on the way home causing $11,000 worth of damage to my car, I came away with a wealth of information that will help me get started in the right direction. Great job!- Joseph Folker.
  • Attended Marketing World Tour in NJ this past week. Have been to many RA Ra meetings in past. This one was worth every penny. I did not got my web=page reviewed, (one page, not up to much) but I did pick up alot of info when other inspectors sites were viewed. The whole program was professional and not much hard selling of venders products. It took 3 hotels and 2 Hyatts to find correct site, but worth the agro. – M Mulholland.
  • Great tour. – Samir Sheth.
  • Great Information last night. Well worth the $99 and battling the traffic. – Robert Cooper.
  • Drove up with Troy, we swapped horror stories back and forth for 8 hours as only home inspectors can do!  Great information, great resources and great ideas were presented. I look forward to implementing some ideas to grow my business. – Brad Brinke.
  • This seminar was awesome. There was a lot of great information and I have some improvements to make. -Juan Jimenez.
  • Nick,  It was great meeting you and the “crew”.  It sure didn’t seem like 4 hrs, more like 20 minutes!  Great info and great presenters too, yeah, even Nathan. I can’t tell you how much I greatly appreciate everything you and InterNACHI provide for inspectors.  While many of us may be great inspectors, marketing is not high (speaking for myself) on my list of talents and I need all the help I can get. The information presented was great and I have already started to made some changes to the website to start to implement your feedback. As always, websites are a work in progress but that alone helps with SEO I guess.  These sessions should be on NACHI TV. . . Thanks again and I look forward to the next event. – Andy Rider.
  • Nick you did a great job in presenting the material. I came back and started updating my web site. Still have work to do on that but it’s coming along. Now I need to put together that great presentation package and get out and meet real estate agents. So much to-do but I’m having a great time doing it.- Doug Pennell.
  • We had a great time at the inspection marketing tour in Raleigh, NC, it was worth the four hour drive from Laurens, SC. We learned some great tips and ideas! – Bradley and April Wilburn.
  • Hello! Frank, Gretchen and Lisa here! Thank you to Nick and Nate for the great seminar! We really enjoyed the thorough knowledge that they both shared. 2013-2014 is marking our 10 year anniversary! With the tips, recommendations and new tools, we are excited to be making some positive changes! Thank you again! It was fun hanging out with you afterwards! – Frank Vizza.
  • Thanks to InterNACHI for offering this opportunity. I attended the event in Chapel Hill, NC and was very pleased. The night was a full 4 hours of useful information to help me build my business. This ranks as one of the top seminars I have ever attended. Nick, Mike, Nathan and Mike Young did an excellent job and I highly recommend this to all inspectors. – A.D. DiRienzo.
  • Agreed 100%, our industry need more events like this and people like Nick. Ask yourself what your association has done for you lately. – Cuong D. Luu.
  • Really enjoyed the meeting last night in Knoxville Tennessee. Hearing all the ideas on how to grow my business was very helpful and encouraging. Thanks Nick for all the efforts to help us be successful. – Robert Swayne.
  • Great conference in Silver Spring. I enjoyed meeting Nick and Nathan for the first time. You have a great website! I enjoyed the advice (especially regarding my website) and the amount of effort that must go into these conferences. Safe travels and I wish you the best on your World Tour.  Sincerely, – Joseph P. Trimble.
  • Went to the tour last night in Knoxville. It is amazing how many marketing ideas Nick has. I’m sure he could have talked for a lot longer than he did and I could have listened to him even longer. As a new business, I needed as many ideas I could get, and I learned a lot from listening to Nick and the other inspectors in the room. The review of websites was very good, I learned the things I thought were good may not be, and some I thought weren’t worth it can bring in business. Again, the inspectors who offered up their web sites had pretty tough skin but the critiques were very informative for them and all of us watching. Good job, Nick. – Jim Campbell.
  • WOW!! Nick, Nathan, and the INL (InterNachi Ladies) did a great job. Really good marketing ideas, tips and tricks of the trade were given all night.
    Don’t miss this one!  Thanks again to Nick and Nathan. – Earl Beahm.
  • Nick, Nathan, and the (ladies),It was very refreshing to know that you guys really care about each of the members and their success in the industry. Willing to share your experiences, wisdom and also the challenges as a home inspector, I really appreciate the great marketing ideas as well as the tricks of the trade. May God continue to bless you and your endeavors.Thanks again, – Darryl Dillard.
  • Thanks for a great 4 hour primer on marketing my business. Got lots of ideas and I really appreciate it. Given the chance, I will attend again. It was worth the drive to Atlanta from Huntsville AL. – Aubrey Tycer.
  • 4 hours of non-stop marketing and proven ways for inspectors to boost their business. Worth every penny. Glad to see InterNACHI members benefiting from this most excellent material. We took lots of notes and plan to implement! -Gary Sloan.
  • Last evening I attended the Inspection Marketing World Tour in Jacksonville, Florida. It was outstanding, Great Job Nick.
    As always I learned a wealth of information and met old friends. Just another example of why being a InterNACHI member is more then worth the dues. – Stephen Guardino.
  • From northwestern South Carolina, my wife and I spent more time in the vehicle than in the 4 hour class. But the class was fantastic! With the fast pace, a lot of information was passed by both Nick and Nathan, in a format that was understandable and complimented by written material that you can read and digest later. It was well worth the money to us, and would be for any newer or experienced one man operation as well as multi-inspector firms as we are. Nick, it would have been nice to have had this information 20 years ago, when I first started. Thanks for a great event!! – Donald Durham.
  • Thanks to Nick and Nathan for the fun and fantastic marketing event. – Wally Conway.
  • Best use of my time for any class I’ve attended ! Nick, Nathan and the presenting sponsors kept the class engaged and provided up-to-date information to help us stay up with the latest marketing strategies and increase revenue.  Their honest (brutal) disection of my brochures and website were spot-on accurate. I now have a path and guide to fix them both, improve my target marketing, and all at NO COST TO ME! Their recommendations will actually save me $$$ every month off my current web hosting.
    Thanks Nick & Nathan, I enjoyed it. – Doug Cooper.
  • To all who think these events are not worth their time, nothing could be further from the truth. Nick Gromico & Nathan Thornberry generously helped provide the perspective of how you can help the greatest # of people: Be the best businessman you can be! (We already know your the best inspector- Right?) Without sound business practices your principles & zeal help very few. Take time out to sharpen the saw! It was well worth my 6 hours driving time to be there! My advice after working hard for 5 years – Don’t miss the one in your area. – Michael Amick.
  • Thanks for all the great information last night.  Nick and Nathan were very informative.  It was worth the time and money to get another professional’s opinion on marketing ideas to help grow my business. – David Semmel.
  • WOW! Thank you, thank you. I learned a LOT. The event flew by, tons of great information just waiting to be put into use. I see I’ve got many more hours to spend on my web site, but it will be time well spent. I can’t wait for the next one. Just one thing Nick and Nathan…. next time please let me pay for something!!! – Eric Augustin.
  • This is an awesome marketing meeting. Information overload! Learning lots of great strategies. – Jay C. Murray.
  • I am at the Orlando event. Great information and live feedback. Real examples from real inspectors in the room. Real discussion on how to make your marketing materials better including business card, brochures and website. Thanks to all that presented. – John Shishilla.
  • Great meeting. Thanks Nick, Mike and Nathan.  To all who did not attend, thank you. You just made my companies growth a whole lot easier. Aubrey Kahn.
  • As always, Nick raises the bar and exceeds expectations. If you haven’t signed up, you are missing out.  I was really glad that I did not see any colleagues from my core market area last night! – William Chandler.
  • Ditto all of the above. I especially liked that it wasn’t just a lot of theory but they actually took several attendee’s websites apart offered criticism and suggested changes. Terrific job well done. – Lawrence Losciale.
  • We have just finished with our marketing meeting. I have to say it was well worth the drive through the Orlando rush hour. Special thanks to all who put it together. – Shelly Hoffman.
  • Thanks Nick, Nathan and Mike for a informative and remarkable time in Orlando last night. – Dan McGuire.
  • Nick, Mike & Nathan,  What an AMAZING night in Tampa! Thank you for all the incredible information that was provided to us and all for under $150. The people at InterNACHI and their affiliates are always raising the bar and lifting up their inspectors with them.  We drove north and clear across the state yesterday just to attend this meeting & can’t think of a better way to have spent a Friday night! The information provided will certainly help us bring our business to the next level.  Any inspector who thinks they don’t need to attend these meetings, are just wrong. Every single piece of information provided to us, pertained directly to us. And just like the ad said…If you’re not there, your competition will be! I’m certainly happy L Street Homes was the ones representing our service area! – Lawrence Street.

  • Enjoyed the seminar. Mike Crow, Nick and Nathan all gave very helpful presentations. Well worth the time and money. – Robert Sole.
  • Hello, Just to let you know we really enjoyed our Inspector Marketing Seminar last week in Orlando. All the guys were great, gave us a lot of good information for us to bring home with Ideas that we can use for our Marketing. I also really like the Home Inspection magazine that you are sending us to give to the real estate offices and will order more. Thank you very much and look forward in going another class. – Claude Marcoux.
  • Attented the marketing tour tonight. Learned alot of things. Very informative. Thank you guys for all your knowledge, time and assistance. Very relaxed atmosphere, lots of humor throughout.  Thanks again. – Tom Babcock.
  • The Chicago marketing tour by Nick was excellent. Discussed many tips on dealing with client, realtors, how to close that call, tips on brochures, media, and your website and…. Great handout packet of tips and InterNACHI materials. If it is still on schedule for your city – get there! – Richard Mangold.
  • As a “new-bee” to the inspection profession, I thought the Marketing Tour was quite informative. I cannot wait to implement the great information garnered during the meeting. I wholeheartedly recommend this event. The value that InterNACHI puts into everything offered to inspectors is simply unbelievable. Thanks. – Patrick Kurchinski.
