WIN Home Inspection Franchise Strategic-Partners benefit from extensive support at headquarters

Back-office support at the WIN Home Inspection franchise sets us apart from our competitors. Our Strategic-Partners benefit from extensive support from headquarters with our 90-day Go Plan.

WIN Home Inspection is one of the fastest-growing home inspection franchises in the country, and it is ranked as a top franchise opportunity by Entrepreneur magazine, Franchise Business Review and by G.I. Jobs. We stand apart from competitors by offering a consistent, professional home inspection service that home buyers appreciate and real estate agents respect. Training, technology and marketing support help Strategic-Partners develop loyal relationships in the real estate industry that lead to a steady stream of customer referrals.

“WIN’s marketing materials are excellent. The training is outstanding,” says Bert Welsh, who started his business near Fresno, California, in 2009. “WIN showed me how to get past the gatekeepers and how to get into the offices to meet the brokers. If you follow the process WIN sets you up with, it really works. As I learned things, I was able to grow my business in a down market. At this point, I’m in control of my own destiny, and that’s what I was looking for at this point in my life. Owning my franchise makes me part of the community. I know hundreds of people that I didn’t know before in the real estate industry.”

WIN’s 90-day Go Plan gives you a roadmap to follow for building relationships quickly. Our training is comprehensive, covering marketing techniques, sales and public relations strategies, target audiences for your messages and ways to differentiate WIN from competitors. Behind the scenes, WIN provides many other tools that help your business grow, including:

  • Local websites that are customized for your area with content that is optimized for search engines and designed to generate leads;
  • Mobile sites for smartphone users, giving them contact information and allowing them to book jobs, which is especially valuable for real estate agents;
  • Social media marketing support and public relations tools and partners;
  • Print-on-demand templates that quickly create custom marketing materials.

Strategic-Partners also receive a 171-page Marketing Manual that covers tools and strategies to grow your business.

“They have a great game plan. Everything in it is explained and mapped out for you,” says Tom Unverzagt, an eight-year Strategic-Partner with franchises in Suffolk and Nassau counties in the greater New York City area — Valley Stream, Rocky Point, East End, Smithtown, Babylon and Huntington. “I like that items, such as fliers and brochures, are included. The training is so comprehensive. WIN teaches you how to set the stage for your business.”

Tom says that being a part of a franchise doesn’t mean your phone will immediately ring off the hook. Strategic-Partners must first get out and shake some hands. Implementing WIN marketing may be difficult at first, Tom says, but it gets easier and more familiar with time.

“WIN’s marketing plan really helps you learn to walk the walk when it comes to marketing,” Tom says. “It can be hard when you first start, but after you’ve cracked that egg, it becomes old hat pretty quickly.”
