My offer may be the best you will find, because like
yourself, am a carpet inspector. I own www.carpetinspector.com and as
such, I understand how you need to be involved with the World Wide Web. My goal is to
share this site with you.
This site registers high with most search engines and is a way
for you to:
Have a professional web address
It is somewhat difficult to give someone an
address like "MyOnlineISP.Com/~MyName. You are after all a carpet inspector and your
web address should be CarpetInspector.Com/MyCompanyName. In addition I can give you a
forwarding e-mail address like mine, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get new business from consumers. Nearly
every inspector who has registered with www.carpetinspector.com
has gotten back his or her investment from customers inspections. Our listing is very high
on most search engines and I am working diligently to keep it high. If you are like me,
you have spent money on Yellow Pages that cost way too much for the return. With your own
web site, you can say a lot more about yourself for far less.
Distribute your important documents
like inspection request forms, Curriculum Vitae, Fee Schedule, and Consulting Agreement.
If you do not have these documents already, we have them available at no extra charge.
Check out the ones on my personal site, because when you are talking with an attorney and
want to quickly establish your credibility, the easiest way to do it is to say, "go
to carpetinspector.com and look at my web page. There you will see my Curriculum
Vitae, Fee Schedule, and Consulting Agreement." In addition when you are dealing with
small businesses and carpet dealers, a signed request form means more assurance that you
will collect your fee. Finally, a recent event with myself was at the end of a deposition
that only lasted a couple of hours. The attorney was only going to pay me for two hours
until I reminded him that I have a four hour minimum. He was reluctant to pay the
additional fee until we went to his own computer and looked up my fee schedule on the net.
The price for all of this is very good -- only $250 for the setup and for the
first year. Thereafter the renewal fee is only $100 per year. On top of that, I will do
something that few others will do; I will turn administration rights over to you. That
means you can edit your own site with your computer. Many programs like Microsoft Word
will let you do this and so will many web browsers. If you have other web development
software, you are fee to use that too.
THERE IS MORE, A LOT MORE
You will also gain access into a large electronic reference
guide called THE 100 CLUB. This valuable resource contains over 100 extremely detailed
reports, worksheets, testing procedures, research articles on many subjects.
There are references to ASTM and AATCC testing procedures, HUD STANDARDS, and Carpet Mill
Mailing list. Because it is on the web it is updated, so you do not have to purchase
the latest edition. Whether you are new in the business or have been doing inspection for
a while, this alone may be worth the price of admission.
If you are interested, just e-mail me or call. My number is toll
free at 800-675-4003 and I will tell you how to get started. I office at home, so evening
calls (Pacific Day light savings time) are acceptable.
