Private Investigations and Personal Security/New PI Business-Question

Advertisement


Question
I need your advice.  I am struggling as a private investigator on my own.  A big part of that problem is that I am in Mississippi.  I realize that.  I did ok working for large firms in Florida but Mississippi is another problem.
What do you suggest?  Should I buy one of those, "How to make $100,000.00 per year as a PI!"  If so, which book do you suggest?
I already have the cards and the website but that's about it.
Thanks for your help and God bless.

Answer
1.  Make sure you conduct an aggressive marketing campaign locally (and in the area of the nearest large city such as
Jackson, etc.) which must include the local yellow pages, chamber of commerce directories, etc.  Everywhere a normal business might advertise to get things going.

2.  Be sure to send introductory letters to all of the area criminal and civil lawyers.  They need PI services occasionally and can be a great financial resource over time.

3.  Promote your website everywhere you can.... If in doubt as to what can be done, contact/hire a web marketing firm to help.

4.  Contact any local PI firms to let them know about you and ask they consider sending business your way if they get overloaded or need help with surveillances, etc.

This should help and we wish you all the best!
