More than just marketing materials, a start-up kit, or a software program that may become outdated, Nationwide Inventory Professionals offers a thorough, comprehensive Business Package and License Agreement to assist you with starting and growing your personal property inventory business. You’ll receive one-on-one mentoring, plus access to processes and procedures you need to catapult your business to success — more quickly than you ever dreamed possible!

Mentoring and Consulting
We don’t just teach you how to do an inventory; we teach you about the industry. This is important because there is more to providing a professional inventory than just documenting items. Rather than the canned formats that most training programs offer, we provide one-on-one consulting to meet your needs. Too often, structured training covers a great deal of information that you might already know, thus wasting valuable time to get your business started. Therefore, you will benefit from personal telephone sessions with the founders or a trained, certified consultant. This telephone consulting method allows us to meet your specific needs without you incurring additional travel expenses for training sessions. With today’s technology, you are able to learn in the comfort of your home, at your chosen pace.
The goal of the first few sessions is to give you a comfort level of the industry and your inventory service. Having this knowledge to present yourself professionally will be a key element when you begin to promote your business. Other topics that are covered in your telephone sessions include business development, marketing strategies, sales techniques, best practices, pricing your service in your market area, and much more. We focus on specific questions you have so we always address what is most important to you.
It is common knowledge that people don’t know what they don’t know. The same is true for the home and business inventory industry. After all, this is a new business for you. Therefore, once all your questions are answered, we have a checklist of items that you and your consultant will discuss during the scheduled mentoring sessions. Suggested articles and other reading material are other aspects of the coaching process.
Since this is your business, you will determine the speed at which we cover these topics. Remember, this is designed to meet your needs, and you will always have access to your consultant as long as you remain a Licensee. Just email or call and we will be there to assist you. Knowledge is extremely important, and the answer to any question is just a phone call away. We are proud to be the only ones in the industry to provide this level of support.
Written in a conversational tone by a professional writer, you will find this 200+ page manual easy to read and comprehend. It will serve as a reference how-to guide during your learning stages of the business, then as a resource thereafter. Provided electronically on a website created just for Licensees, it is in pdf format so you can search for a specific topic or keywords to easily find the information you’re seeking. Some of the topics included in the manual are:
- Know your target markets
- Speaking engagements/presentations
- Handling objections
- Sales techniques
- Pricing your service
- Equipment and supplies
- The proven process
- Tips on conducting a thorough inventory
There many other topics in the manual which is designed to be a resource, not a book you read once and then never look at it again. We update the information, adding improved processes, new marketing ideas, and ways to connect with new ancillary markets. Therefore, your electronic asset inventory service guide is always up to date.
We believe in continuing education, and encourage Licensees to always learn and grow. To support this belief, we are committed to helping each Licensee achieve industry certification. As part of your License Agreement, you will receive your 1st-year membership in the National Inventory Certification Association (NICA). Also, to help ensure you gain industry and general business knowledge, all required courses to achieve your Certified Inventory Specialist (CIS) designation are also included in your License Agreement.
As you develop and grow your business, you will receive the resources you need, as often as you need them. We will be with you every step of the way, providing experience, knowledge, and mentoring. Yet it’s your independent business. You own the company — and you reap the rewards!
