Websites in home inspection have been evolving over the last 20 years. At first they were a simple business card site, then they became resource centers for clients, then we started blogging to get to the top of search engines...and then ISN came along and made ordering home inspections straight from your website a reality.

Then things got a little off track. We (as a profession) started getting into crazy squeeze page concepts that turned clients off and then we killed that. Some of us even paid crazy monthly fees (as much as $750 per month, not kidding) for a few pages where the web host actually owned the phone number (not good) and the ROI was terrible. Some feel trapped in these to this day, getting only a few inspections off the site per month and justifying its existence somehow.

Now we've largely come back to reality.


We have always known the websites offered by Dominic Maricic are solid and it is hard to find an inspector that doesn't have at least one of those - if you don't have one you should (try to do more than the basic content we see on many of them...add a few USP's at least and some great graphics!). We've seen other great sites built by high end developers with examples out there like www.EliteInspections.com. More recently we've had premium sites developed through InspectorSHOP like www.AroundTheBlockHomeInspections.com and hundreds of inspectors have created sites at www.UltimateInspectorWebsites.com - a free web building tool that is incredibly easy to use and has a free hosting feature for up to five websites.

Here's a Great Project for your Memorial Day Weekend:


Build a Website and Get $250-$1000 in FREE tools, printing, or anything else we offer at The Inspector Services Group.


Here's the fine print:


1. Build site at www.UltimateInspectorWebsites.com for your own company. Important: It does NOT have to replace your existing site!!! It should be an additional site.

2. Site can focus on home inspection, mold inspection, or anything else inspection related BUT it must be a minimum of 40 pages and have the content complete.

3. You must connect it to a URL (click the publish button) and then post a link to in on the Home Inspection Forum in this Thread.



That's it! The first to complete this challenge gets $1000 credit, the second $750, the third $500, and everyone thereafter $250 in credit all the way through JULY 4th, 2016!.

I'm interested but all of these "pages" would need to be landing pages to work effectively - right?

No, they can be pages of any kind.

I hadn't heard that. What are you using? I've used it in Safari as well and it was fine.

Internet Explorer - I know...but I like it. On the start page, you have to pick either Chrome or Firefox to begin. I don't get that especially since I heard MS was dropping Chrome.

BUT it must be a minimum of 40 pages


An obtuse and arbitrary number; no one in this industry needs 40 or more pages, period.

It is apparently designed to advertise your own offerings, as per your description in the ad copy.

I would like to use their product but I just can't support someone who doesn't respect minorities and equal web surfing. Internet Explorer Users matter too.
