Tips For Fixing Other People's Credit

Jul 2, 2008
There is a huge amount of unmet demand for solving other people's credit problems. Now is the time to enter the market as a credit restoration specialist. In this article we will tell you how to prepare for this fast growing field.

Tip #1: Arm yourself with education and information. There is a wide array of resources available today on the credit repair process. Take the time to learn everything you can about the fixing other people's credit. Some of the information will be legal and specific to your state. Equally valuable will be proven techniques and tips that other professionals have successfully used. Collect and categorize the information and it will provide a ready reference when you really need it.

Tip #2: Protect yourself and your clients. Before you start working to repair a client's bad credit, you should share with them the appropriate legal disclosures and disclaimers. This is important to protect yourself from potential risk, but also to ensure your client understands what you can and cannot legally do. It is likely that you are not a lawyer, so take the time upfront to obtain the appropriate legal disclosure and disclaimer forms from a reputable source.

Tip #3: Document and file. If you are not a well-organized person, the credit repair field may not be for you. It is critical that you maintain accurate files with all the correspondence and communications between you, your clients, and their lenders. View this as a paper trail; if you can't immediately retrieve what you've done in the past for a client, you can not take the correct, next step for them.

Tip #4: Don't get personal. You will be dealing with a client base that may be upset, even angry. Your goal is to be dispassionate and provide logical advice based on the circumstances. If you become personally involved with each client's problems, and become swayed by their emotions, your effectiveness will be hindered. Be compassionate and understanding. Provide good, solid advice. Don't let your professionalism be compromised by your emotions.

Tip #5: Update your knowledge. The regulations and legal rulings pertaining to credit repair change over time. It is important that you stay up-to-date with the very latest information and techniques. Locate a frequently updated information source, and check it often to ensure that you are staying current with the latest trends

Tip #6: Celebrate your successes. The credit repair business is an art, not a science. The problems your clients bring you will be diverse and complicated. It's not likely that you will be successful 100% of the time. Don't take it personally if your clients don't follow your advice. Don't despair if you are unable to help a particular client. Take pride in your successes and learn from your failures.

The success of your efforts will lie with your ability to learn the proper techniques, follow legal procedures, document your paper trail, and stay up-to-date with your knowledge of the credit repair business. Your clients, and your bank account, will thank you.
