Start a Credit Repair Business in Texas

Statistics tell us that there are over 3 million consumers in Texas that have a 599 credit score or lower. That means that many people in the state of Texas that would like to purchase a home cannot qualify for a mortgage. Therefore, if someone is looking for a business opportunity a great idea would be to start a credit repair business in Texas.

However, state and federal government laws and regulations along with competition from large, experienced companies make it very difficult to start a credit repair company on your own.

In addition, as an entrepreneur beginning a “start up” venture you have to do everything yourself including having $10,000 to invest in your business to do it professionally and legally. So, what’s the alternative?

Credit Score Basics – How to Get a Good Credit Score

The first step in learning the credit score basics is to learn what makes up a credit score. Although each credit bureau uses a somewhat different scoring model (FICO, FICO II, Vantage) what constitutes a credit score is represented by this infographic:

Credit Score Basics
What Makes Up a Credit Score

When people want to improve their credit score they mostly focus on removing derogatory or negative accounts from their credit report. They may try it themselves. Then after little or no results they call a credit repair company for help. Credit repair, or what we call credit restoration, is a good thing to do. Removing derogatory accounts will increase your score.

Obsolete Accounts– accounts older than 7 years from the date of last activity should be deleted automatically but sometimes they are not. We use federal law to get these items removed for you.

Accounts with Erroneous or Outdated Information– If these are negative accounts, removing them will increase your score. We also use federal law do get these items updated or removed.

Unverifiable or Unverified Accounts– These are accounts that the creditor of record cannot or chooses not to verify. These items will be removed via federal law if challenged in the correct manner.

Our company has been providing the fastest, most effective results in the credit repair industry since 2004.

However, that only impacts 35% of your credit score.

We can help you in every area of your credit score basics

Therefore, we provide other services that impact 100% of your credit score.

Let’s tackle the next biggest percentage, your amounts owed (30%)

If you can pay down the amounts you owe to 30% of your credit limit that will increase your credit score. For instance, if you have a credit card with a $1,000 limit, pay down the balance to $300.  You may not think you can based on your budget but we have an online budget and debt payoff tool that will show you how to pay these accounts down. And, it will show you how to do that with the same amount of money you currently spend on your bills.

Next, the Types of Credit and New Credit (20%)

Sometimes it’s hard to understand that if you don’t have the right types of open credit accounts (revolving, installment) such as a car loan, mortgage, and credit cards you can’t have an optimum credit score. In other words, you have to have credit to have a good credit score. And you need new credit from time to time especially if you do not have enough open lines of credit.

We help people establish new lines of credit with a secured credit card program from Synovus Bank and a program that will add a positive rental history to your Transunion credit report. And, we will make other recommendations to you as well.

Lastly, Length of Credit History (15%)

This one just takes time. We have to get you the right types of credit, remove negative items, and let it season. Over time your credit score will go up based on the length of credit history.

Market a Credit Repair Business Using Social Media

There are many ways to get the word out and attract customers to market a credit repair business. These techniques are really no different than any other business. But many times credit repair businesses are owned and operated by solopreneurs, those that are running their business by themselves. Therefore, time and expertise is limited.

Market a Credit Repair Business

Word of Mouth- Everyone you know needs to know you’re in the credit repair business.

Referral Sources- Make contact with those professionals in real estate, mortgage, banking, auto and solar businesses. These people run talk with people that need credit repair every day.

Business Networking- Get out in the community and go to networking meetings that are attended by local business professionals from many industries. Consider joining your local Chamber of Commerce.

Advertising- Run ads on Google and other search engines, use signs, car magnets. It can be expensive and time consuming to advertise on the internet. You need expertise and have the time constantly monitor online advertising.

Blogging- This is a great way to get exposure and drive traffic to your website.

Social Media- Whether you personally like social media or not, using it to get exposure, drive traffic to your website, and attract customers to market a credit repair business is a must.

 

You either have to learn different social media platforms or hire someone to do it for you.

Here are the different social media platforms, the primary purpose of each and what each is best used for.

Social Media Platforms for Marketing a Credit Repair Business

There are keys to doing it correctly. These keys will alter a bit depending on the platform you use.

Posting on Social Media

You must be consistent in order to attract people and build your brand. Posting on social media is not ALL about your business. You want to give before you get by educating people on credit. You want to show people that you’re a real person by posting about your family, lifestyle and interests.

Types of posts you want to be consistent with-

The Services You Offer
Free Information, Education About Credit
Lifestyle- Posts about yourself and family
Motivational posts- quotes, inspirational images and videos
Business Activities- Images when attend a community meeting, visit a real estate office, do a seminar, etc.

As you can see social media can be time consuming. First, you have to learn it. Then you have to carve out time every day to do it. You also have to look at other forms of exposure as listed above because social media will take some time to develop a following. Then, of course, you have to run your business.

But what if all you had to do was attract customers? The infrastructure of your business was already in place and the service of credit repair and other services to increase a client’s credit score was being handled by a staff. That would be great, right? Then you could concentrate on attracting more customers, building a bigger business, and making more money.
