Wake up your website

HomeGauge can wake up your website

It's past noon... get your lazy website out of bed!

It takes more than just a brochure website to really get noticed online these days. Our dedicated team of website developers and SEO specialists can prime your website and help build it up for higher rankings. You may have heard of our successful SEO Primer, which over a period of 6 months takes the most important steps of setting up your website for long-term success. Many of our hosting customers have had great success with this program and have asked for more. So, now we have more. The next step is our brand new SEO Builder. With the building blocks in place from our SEO Primer, the SEO Builder takes websites to the next level with custom blogging, shared links to your company's Facebook page, and more. Everyone used to say, "Content is King on the Internet!" Well guess what? It still is. Your website is the new yellow page phone book ad and it needs professional service and custom content that's regularly updated. Rates are as low as $150 a month and include our Managed Hosting, where we become your website manager. We promise you will not get similar service elsewhere for anywhere near the price we offer. We do it because we are in it for the long haul. We will update your website continually and do the nerdy work for you. My dad always said, "Let a plumber do what a plumber does and you do what you do best." So take my dad's advice and let us manage your website with HomeGauge's SEO Primer and SEO Builder! For more information, call us at (828) 254-2030 or email us at hostingsupport@homegauge.com. You can also learn more about these programs at our upcoming class in September (see below).

HomeGauge Promoting HG Inspectors
HomeGauge is promoting HomeGauge inspectors

HomeGauge is spending thousands promoting our HomeGauge inspectors at real estate shows! How many other home inspection software companies do that? (Answer: None.) This fall we will be giving away a Ring doorbell or two while showing real estate agents our new patent pending Create Request List™ (CRL™) feature! After we show them how we can save them an hour or more per report, reduce liability through documentation, and control the buyer's expectations, we'll tell them that they can only get this when they use an inspector who uses HomeGauge! We will be attending several real estate shows across the country and promoting you and CRL™!

You can promote your services by using your custom CRL™ link! Go to the page below on your HomeGauge.com Dashboard to get your custom CRL™ marketing link and to read more information about CRL™.

Final Thoughts
Final thoughts

Stay tuned — HomeGauge has more unique features coming soon that the industry has never seen before! We were the first in the industry to upload reports! Remember when that wasn't a thing? We were the first to provide real html (not the fake html where they convert their pdf to inflexible html)! We were the first to empower you with video clips in the report! We were the first to help real estate professionals create lists for their repair addendums with Create Request List™. It's funny how it all seems so obvious now. HomeGauge leads while the others copy. Choose HomeGauge for your home inspection reports and delivery service to get more business! When you succeed, we succeed too.

Until next time,
Russell Buchanan
HomeGauge, President
