Allow us to share our experiences with you.

We provide seminars and workshops that focus on aspects of private investigation that other investigators and the general public would like to know more about. Our experiences tend to capture the attention of audiences and provide real-life, practical ideas for discussion or expansion.

We have several seminars/workshops for you to choose from and we will also customize our seminars and workshops to meet the needs of your audience.

Business Secrets for the Successful Private Investigator

We have partnered with a proven producer of successful business programs to bring you the latest in creating and continuing a successful PI business. Most investigators are not business oriented and are used to earning just enough to get by. We’ll change that for you with proved methods that can bring in $100,000, $200,000 or $300,000 a YEAR! Programs designed just for you!

We help you:

  • Develop a successful business plan
  • Implement that plan
  • Identify your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats
  • Identify your unique selling proposition
  • Identify your niche market that aligns with your strengths
  • Market your services
  • Identify and get to the decision makers
  • Present your services in a way that speaks to your market
  • Close the sale
  • Conducting a proper investigation
  • Putting your results on paper
  • Satisfy your client
  • Bringing them back for more
  • Business development

Building A Solid Private Investigation Practice

The Building A Solid Private Investigation Practice seminar/workshop teaches business owners how to get their vision, mission, purpose and values on paper to provide them direction, give them focus, empower them when things are tough, help them make critical business decisions and have a solid foundation on which to build and operate their business. Partnered with leading experts in the field, they will also identify the core of their business, which will allow them to focus on their strengths and become more profitable. Even though this seems easy, 90% of small business owners have not taken the time to do this work, therefore they react instead of being proactive.

Guerilla Marketing That Works

The Marketing That Works seminar/workshop teaches private investigators who have never been business owners how to develop a marketing message that speaks directly to their market, therefore providing results that increases their revenue. It also covers how to identify their “niche” market, tactics for networking, why market research saves them time and money, and how to track their ROI. After this workshop, your participants will spend less on marketing but capture more of their market share.

How to Hire a Private Investigator

The Hiring a Private Investigator workshop is designed for attorneys, law practices, and business owners who have never utilized a private investigator before. Experiences of private investigators vary widely and not all private investigators are equally qualified. Learn what investigators expect of you and what you should expect from the investigator as well as some of the pitfalls of hiring the wrong person. We’ll provide you with some practical thoughts about where to find the best investigator and the kinds of services that will enhance your own business.
