But will they address all derogatory items immediately? Will they give you online reporting to so you can monitor the progress of your account?

Your credit score is not just based on negative items on your report. You need an overall credit score plan that will impact every aspect of your credit score.
You can read on but if you’d like we can explain this all to you over the phone.

If you’re looking to start a credit repair business you may have come to the conclusion that you basically have two options.
Option 1- Piece together the business by paying separately for software, a website, contracts, training and other essential components by buying kits, CD’s and manuals.
Option 2- Purchase a credit repair franchise that presumably has everything you need to get started.
We actually are going to provide you a third option for a credit repair business opportunity below that we believe you’ll find head and shoulders above the first two.
A Challenge to Overcome to Start a Credit Repair Business
Neither of the first two options overcomes a major challenge in the credit repair business. You need to have the time to not only find clients but also perform the credit repair service for these clients. Finding clients is a full time job by itself. Doing the work of credit repair is another full time job. So, to work with either of the first two options there will be a limit to the amount of credit repair business you can generate. Or, you have to hire staff to generate the business or provide the credit repair service, whichever part you do not want to do or are least skilled to do.
If you have done any homework on the topic you probably did an internet search for the following terms as we did:
start a credit repair business
starting a credit repair business
credit repair business opportunity
credit repair business franchise
and terms very similar. What you found are the types of opportunities mentioned above. Companies that provide pieces of the business, and others that offer a credit repair franchise.
What You’ll Need to Start a Credit Repair Business from Scratch
Before you can decide on a company to work with that offers pieces of the credit repair business you need to understand all the pieces you’ll need. Here is a partial list of what you would need to start a credit repair business.
A Web Site– and text for that web site such as frequently asked questions, a marketing video explaining your service, a contact form, an option for a client to sign up for your credit repair service online, and more.
Marketing Materials– brochures, flyers, videos, business cards, logo
Credit Repair Contracts for your state or other states if you want to do business outside your state
Credit Repair Software to assist in the credit repair process, sales tracking, and accounting
A Staffed Phone Line for customer support
An Automated Process for updating clients on the their credit repair progress
We found no companies other than the third option which we’ll reveal below that provides all these pieces.To put it all together, costs will range upward from $1,000 to start a credit repair business. But that does not include many of the missing parts of your business. You can estimate the true start up costs yourself but our figure is conservatively at $10,000 over the first year.
Credit Repair Franchise
There is the credit repair franchise or licensee option. We found a few although there may be more.
There is also a company called Credit Repair USA which is not a franchise. They consider you a licensee. According to a video on their website as of the update of this post they’ve been bringing on licensees since 2015 and have about 200 such licensees. Franchise Gator lists their fees at between $199/mo to $1499/mo.
Challenges with a Credit Repair Franchise
Let’s assume each of these franchisors or licensors provides you with everything listed above. And let’s ignore for the fact for a moment that many credit repair franchisors have gone out of business. That, of course, leaves their franchisees with no benefit to the money they spent on the franchise. You still have to consider that franchisors typically limit your territory.
And what really are you paying thousands of dollars for? None of these companies have a household name. If you buy a Subway sandwich franchise you’re getting a recognized name and national TV exposure. But none of these companies will accomplish that for you. And, are they going to satisfy the requirements in your state or do you have to do that?

This post was originally published in June of 2013 and has been updated for freshness, accuracy and comprehensiveness.
Approximately one third of the people in the U.S. have a sub-prime credit score (under 620). About 14% have no credit score at all. That means that nearly half of this country needs help. But you have to find those people, get your message out to them, and convert them into clients. The only way to do that is to think of your new business as an online credit repair business.
That doesn’t mean you won’t have interaction with your client prospects. It just means that you need to find them online through social media and other ways, and attract them to you. But finding clients online isn’t as easy as it sounds. Taking someone from a Facebook Ad, as an example, to a converted client requires online tools and marketing material.
Online Credit Repair Business Model
Building online tools such as Ads, sales funnels, and landing pages can be a full time job by itself. Couple that with everything needed to start a credit repair business in the first place and it can become overwhelming. Fortunately we have a business model that someone can plug right into and have the tools and technology, online and offline, to start generating clients right away.
Building an online credit repair business can be advantageous to those that still have another business or job. It allows the part-time credit repair business owner to look at their phone, tablet or laptop and check in on their business periodically throughout the day. You can send a quick message or a book a phone appointment at a time when you’re available.
Built in Credit Repair Business Support
In addition to the marketing, one other consideration is the time and effort it takes after you get a client. Who’s going to pull credit? And how are you going to get those credit reports? Who’s going to analyze those reports and generate legally compliant disputes of derogatory items? How are you going to report progress and results to the client? And, there’s much more in the way of administration to be concerned with. No worries. Our business model takes care of all that too!

Whether you earn $30,000 a year or $300,000 there are basic protections we all should have to secure ourselves and our families. Your credit score, that 3 digit number, is so vitally important that we need to take steps to manage it and protect it. A key in protecting your credit score is to protect your identity.
Facebook announced on September 28, 2018 that an attack on its computer network had exposed the personal information of nearly 50 million users. It is unclear if this breach affected the world-wide Facebook community of 2.23 billion or just the 214 million U.S. users. Assuming it was a world-wide attack you would have a 1 in 45 chance of having your identity compromised.
If you are not currently using Lifelock or another identity theft protection program you should immediately. The day after Facebook reported the breach Lifelock sent out a warning to its subscribers so they could take appropriate action.
Protection of your identity and credit is a monthly expense. But it’s nominal compared to not being protected. Protection of this kind should be looked upon as being similar to home owners, car, life and health insurance. Comparatively it costs much less but can save you just as much.
A recommendation is to get an evaluation of your current credit status. There are simple many ways and ongoing habits to adopt that can boost your score. You just have to know what those are. For a free evaluation visit www.ERACreditServices.com/contact. There you can schedule a phone appointment on a day and time convenient for you. We can also enroll you for Lifelock to protect your identity immediately.
