What You Need to
Start a Credit Repair Business

For several years I have been blogging and producing videos about how to, and what you need to start a credit repair business. If done correctly the credit repair business can be an incredibly lucrative and rewarding home-based business. However, it’s all about the business model. If someone chooses the wrong business model it can be a failure before it gets off the ground.

The reason I am qualified to share this information is that I started my own credit repair business in 2012. Today that business produces nearly $1 million in annual revenue and provides me a very comfortable 6 figure income. I have worked from home the entire time and control my schedule. My wife and I travel whenever we like. I can decide to work while traveling or have someone on the team work my business for me and shut down completely.

The revenue, income and time freedom I enjoy are all a result of the business model we chose. I cannot stress this enough. You can choose to go it alone and start a credit repair business all on your own. I contend that if you choose this type of business model you will never generate the revenue, income and time freedom you perhaps desire.

What Are You Trying to Accomplish?

I believe that in order to start a successful credit repair business you must look at what you want that business to accomplish for you before you start it. You must also think about what you need to start a credit repair business. What are all the components of a credit repair business? Then decide how you’re going to implement them.

The chart below is a list of items you must consider before you begin any work on starting your business. As you will see there is a lot to think about. You can easily compare starting a credit repair business on your own versus joining our company as an independent credit repair agency owner.

Please note that an independent agency is a business that you own. You can sell that business or will it to your heirs just like starting your own business by yourself. However, as you can see, the advantages are many.

If you want to explore more about owning an independent credit repair agency I give you the process of doing that below the chart.

Referral sources receive an online portal linking them to progress reports of the clients they refer to you

Business Growth Potential

Limited based on the owner doing all the credit repair admin work, marketing, sales, and all other aspects of the business. If staff is hired it reduces profits generated from clients

Unlimited for 2 reasons. The company and staff provide all work and materials except marketing & sales. And Agencies, at no cost to them, can bring on an unlimited number of independent Agents to expand the business throughout the country. As the number of Agents grow so does the revenue & profit from the business

Experience Required

Because all knowledge of credit repair and building a business must be acquired at a cost, it is beneficial that the owner have as much previous experience as possible

No previous credit repair or business experience is necessary. Of course, if the Agent has previous experience in either it will help their business grow faster

Best Credit Repair Services

For nearly 7 years I’ve been on a mission to tell people about what we do. That we offer not only credit repair, but a package of the best credit repair services to work on 100% of their credit score. To understand the distinction requires a bit of an explanation.

Credit repair, which is offered by many companies, is the removal or deletion of derogatory accounts from a credit report. This is all that the majority of credit repair companies offer. But this only impacts 35% of a consumer’s credit score which is called ‘Payment History’. The other components of a credit score are:

Amounts Owed- 30%
Length of Credit History- 15%
New Credit- 10%
Types of Credit- 10%

We offer the fastest, most effective credit repair service allowed by federal law. We do a great job of removing negative items from our client’s credit reports. However, we also provide other credit repair services to build all, or 100% of our client’s credit score. This gives you the biggest boost to your credit score.

Get the Maximum Boost to Your Credit Score

Most people when they come to us need us to remove some negative items from their credit report. But in order to get the maximum boost to their score, they need to add positive credit accounts to their credit reports. We provide recommendations on how to do that and we have a service that no one else in our industry has. We call it ‘Credit My Rent’.

Credit My Rent adds a client’s monthly rental payment of a home or apartment onto their Transunion credit report. We can add up to the previous 2 years of these payments. This will boost Length of Credit History (15%), New Credit (10%), and Types of Credit (10%).

Eliminate Negative Accounts & Add Positive Accounts

We also educate our clients and provide online tools to help them pay down their existing debt. Most people think that as long as they make their minimum payment on their credit card they are maximizing their credit score. This is not true. To get the maximum credit score, credit card and other revolving credit balances must be 30% or less of the limit.

Of course, to pay down credit card balances is easier said than done. We give our clients on online tool to show them how to pay down their balances using the same amount of money they currently spend on monthly debt. This impacts the Amounts Owed (30%).

Other credit repair services we provide free of charge are online credit monitoring, identity monitoring and theft protection, a budgeting tool and more.

You’ll be very impressed that we provide these services for the same or less cost than most companies charge for credit repair alone. And remember, credit repair alone only impacts 35% of your score.

Start a Credit Repair Business
in North Carolina

Many people in today’s economy decide to start their own business. Possibly they just need a 2nd income. Or, maybe they want to leave their job and work for themselves. After doing some research it makes sense for many to start a credit repair business in North Carolina.

I have owned a business that markets credit repair and related services since 2012. Here I give you the Pro’s and the Con’s of starting a North Carolina credit repair business. Then I offer you a solution that will offset all of the Con’s and is the very best credit repair business solution in the country.

The Pro’s of Starting a Credit Repair Business in North Carolina

The Con’s of Starting a Credit Repair Business in North Carolina

This list includes the con’s of starting a credit repair business anywhere in the United States

  • The cost of starting a credit repair business can be high
    • A requirement to start a credit repair business in North Carolina is to obtain a surety bond. The bond must be in the amount of $10,000. The cost of the bond will be dependent on your credit score and other factors. The lowest cost for a surety bond that I could find was $200 annually with excellent credit.
    • To be in business today you must have a website. You can hire someone to build it for you or build it yourself. Costs will vary. Even if you have the skill to build it yourself using Wix, WordPress or another service, there are other costs. You must pay for hosting, an SSL certificate, a related email address, and more
    • You will need to purchase software. The cost of credit repair software ranges from $30/month to $400/month.
    • Marketing materials are a must to be in the credit repair business. You could start off with just business cards and flyers. But in order to compete with other companies you will want to have tri-fold brochures and even marketing videos. This can get very costly
    • Providing your clients online access to their credit repair information and updates to the progress may be cost prohibitive when you’re starting out. But just know that other companies provide this and it’s something you’ll have to convince your prospects that they don’t need

Even if you have the capital to start a credit repair business in North Carolina
have you considered the following:

  • Working alone in your credit repair business will limit the amount of business you can do. Many under estimate the time to work on a client’s credit repair. They also don’t consider the amount of time for marketing to new prospects and selling to those prospects
  • Initially you may not have other services available to increase a client’s credit score. Removing negative items from a credit report only accounts for 35% of a credit score. Can you provide other services to impact the other 65%?
  • When you start your business you have no reputation, credibility or trust built up in the market. Many times consumers look for a Better Business Bureau rating or reviews to help them make a decision. You will want to create listings on Yelp, Google, and other services. You will also need to have social media pages/accounts on Facebook and other platforms. If no one can look you up on the internet they will not trust your business
  • There is a lot of competition in North Carolina in this industry. All the large players are in the state and can offer more services and more technology
  • You will have to have competitive pricing. And, if you are not an attorney, bank or non-profit organization you cannot charge fees for service until they are performed. You can charge a nominal start-up fee
