7 Tips to Grow Your Private Investigator Business 

Are you wondering if it is possible to grow your PI business to a new level?

Yes, it’s possible!

Did you know that highly professional Sydney private investigators charge up to $80 to $120 per hour? Well, now you know, and you can earn even more. With the right expertise and dedication, you will definitely earn more and grow exponentially.
All you must do is elevate the position of your private investigator business in the eyes of your customers. The better your business appears, the more customers will trust you and the more money you make.

In today’s post, we will discuss how exactly to grow your business like that. So, without further ado, let’s get started!

1. Focus on Hiring a Talented Team

Most private investigators prefer to work alone. But if you want to run a business and take up more clients, it’s important to have a team of talented individuals.

Please don’t take the hiring process lightly. These team members will handle most of the workload and client queries. If your team is not talented enough to handle challenging tasks themselves, you will find yourself engaged in a single project for long hours.

This will slow down the progress of your business. You will also not get enough time to make other important decisions and plan ahead. 

2. Have a Personal Brand

Nowadays, a powerful personal brand is your best digital marketing tool. If people see you as an authoritative or influential personality on the internet, they will automatically approach you for business.

But how do you create a strong personal brand for new private investigators? Well, first, join Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, Twitter, and other social media platforms. Create an impressive profile and start posting insightful content. 

You may talk about your achievements, case studies, and even your life as a private investigator. The goal is to increase your follower number and get more business.

3. Create a Business Website

The first thing your potential customers do is look for your website. They will put your business name on Google and search for relevant details. But if your official site doesn’t exist, your customer will feel like you aren’t legit. 

So, create a business website on your preferred platform and fill it with useful information about your business. Also, add a blog section to share free information and generate a passive income stream.

Please make sure the site is impressive and designed by a professional. The look of your business site matters as much as the text. So, set a good first impression!

4. Build an Online Presence

Once you’ve built a website, focus on increasing the social media presence of your private investigator business. Create an account on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and other popular platforms.

Note that these accounts will be different from your personal brand accounts. In personal branding, your content will be centered around you. How qualified and talented you are as a private investigator? 

But, in business accounts, your content will promote your company as one unit. You will post about your business services, achievements, case studies, etc. You will also keep a professional, corporate-like tone.

5. Establish a Loyal Customer Base

Like any other business, it’s important to provide an outstanding service to your customers for a long-term relationship. It doesn’t matter how well you solve the investigation. If your team’s behavior towards the customer is rude or unsatisfactory, the client won’t return.

This means you will lose a future business opportunity. So, train your team on how to offer an excellent experience to your clients and focus on increasing the number of repeat clients.

6. Network with the Right People

There’s a lot of power in the word of mouth. People discuss each other and when they get to know about a reputable service from a person they know, they are much more likely to use that service.

So, attend events and connect with people in relevant fields. These may include lawyers, restaurant owners, police officers, and even retailers.

7. Invest in a Digital Marketer

Lastly, if you want to see sudden growth in your private investigator business, invest in a qualified digital marketer. This person will assess your current status and develop a customized online strategy.

Of course, the professional will charge a considerable amount to grow your business online. But since you won’t have to spend time learning and experimenting with digital marketing, this will be a fair trade-off.
