Lightbulb Re: Watch: Inspector Marketing Presentation with Spectora

Roy, I was at a recent meeting where these two gentlemen presented their SEO suggestions and marketing suggestions. They are super knowledgeable about the inspection business and I found their suggestions to be helpful to my business. You're right that their product is expensive. It seems to be a full-service subscription that includes report writing, SEO, other marketing and follow-up services. It could be a good service for someone new in the inspection business, it might help a new person to get a faster start in business. However a new inspector would need a lot of money to buy this service, and of course there is no guarantee of success. Even though I'm not needing something like this service, I wish them success in their business. And as I said, their recent marketing presentation was excellent and quite helpful!

Evidently you’re not fully happy with it if you’re still using ISN instead of Spectora for office management.

Hey Aaron, nice to see you on a Spectora thread!

A majority of our inspectors use our office management features and are pretty happy with them. We like to give our users options though if they feel we don't have everything they need. Either way, they're pretty happy, saving time and making more money.

PS. We have always appreciated your kindness when we entered the industry and have respect for your product.

Thanks Kevin...

Like what though? Why would an inspector continue to use and pay for ISN if Spectora provides the same services?

You need to go back and reread my post, but slower, I stated "Report Writer" not their business management system. Ive been using ISN since 2008 and no one else compares. That's why I still use ISN.

That said, I will say Specorta's business management system is way better than yours. Oh wait, that's right, you don't have one.

I did give Spectacular a try but threw it in the trash because you had a worthless search function.. Hope you got that worked out.

Mike you must pay A LOT for software & office to pay for both of these... Thanks for mentioning Spectacular though. Yes we have comment search and full ISN integration for our office.

Kevin, I must say I don’t feel the respect that you said you have for us especially when you go out and buy Google keyword ads for Spectacular and link them to your site. In fact, it’s a little dirty, shady and extremely disrespectful. Not sure who advised you to do that, but it’s not cool.

I’ve been using Spectora for both report writing and back office. My clients and brokers love the report! Thanks for the informative video.

1 inspection more than pays for both for the month. I pay more for gas in my vehicle.

I am now booking unsolicited office presentations to show off my Spectora reports at the request of brokers and agents who have been loving my reports. Also picking up new referring agents who I have not worked with (as a buyers agent) before.

When the ROI is that good, I will not hesitate to spend the money monthly..
