Welcome!

BizVelop is a free business development tool that helps inspection companies grow and become more profitable.

Whether you're a brand new inspector, a veteran inspector, or the owner of a multi-inspector firm, BizVelop first determines where you are now and then boosts all areas of your inspection business to help you get to that next level-and beyond-while, at the same time, identifying weaknesses and then strengthening them to increase your profits.

Here's How it Works:

BizVelop starts by asking you a series of questions about you and your inspection business. The system will analyze the information you provide. As you advance through each section, BizVelop's built-in intelligence will generate customized business advice, with live links that include detailed instructions on what you should do-and not do-to grow your inspection business. Each live link will open in a new window that you can close without disrupting your progress. BizVelop allows you to work at your own pace-you can stop and save your work whenever you like and return to it later.

BizVelop makes it fun by providing advice instantly, in real time. So, as you proceed so you don't have to finish or wait for a report at the end. Instant gratification!

Although BizVelop doesn't require you to complete the "Additional Recommendations" sections or read the articles recommended, you really should. They are important to your success.

BizVelop isn't just a digital tool. Real human beings fulfill the requests you make while inside the system. They'll contact you in person if you request it. They'll perform actual tasks for you. And they'll ship you actual, free products that will help you, but only after you reach the end of the system and hit the "Submit" button. So do complete all the sections.

The system works best if you never touch your "return" key. After you type something, just move your cursor to the next line.

If you ever intentionally or accidentally leave BizVelop, you can always return and continue. At the end of each section, the system offers you the option to save your work so that you can resume later. When you choose this option, you are provided a live link to return to exactly where you left off. You are even given an option to have the link emailed to you.

BizVelop will land you more inspection jobs, add additional fee-paying services, permit you to charge more for those services, improve your efficiencies, lower your risks, save you money, and boost your bottom line.

Hit the green button at the bottom right to get started.


Enjoy your success!
