11 Tools Successful Credit Repair Business Owners Love

By: Daniel Rosen September 26, 2019

Derrick Harper, founder of multi-million dollar company Point Boosters Credit Repair, attributes his success in the credit repair industry to working smart, not hard.

When Derrick started in credit repair, he was doing everything manually. But with client numbers steadily increasing, the workload soon became unmanageable. It was only when Derrick began to optimize his business that he was able to regain control and experience exponential growth. He says, “automation is key” if you want to build a business that grows while you sleep.

In this post, we’ve tapped into the community of people who are killing it as credit repair business owners. Here are the 11 tools they rely on to reach their mission.

1. Credit Repair Cloud

What would a credit repair company be without a one-stop-shop for managing all things credit? Credit hero, Tracy Arnett, Founder of First Capital Inquiry Removal, found that he was able to take his company from start-up to scale-up with the right credit repair software – increasing his yearly revenue from $120,000 to more than $2 million.

Credit repair software like Credit Repair Cloud (CRC) negates the need for other tools by providing add-ons such as:

  • A professionally built website that’s ready in minutes
  • Templates for flyers and other marketing collateral
  • Three different types of API integrations that integrate your data with other tools
  • Battle-tested dispute letter templates
  • A training portal for continued education
  • Continued support through the credit repair cloud community
  • A professionally built website that’s ready in minutes
  • Templates for flyers and other marketing collateral
  • Built-in Zapier integrations that seamlessly integrate your data with other tools
  • Battle-tested dispute letter templates
  • A training portal for continued education

With Credit Repair Cloud, unleashing your inner credit hero comes naturally as you follow the path trialed and tested by others.

2. ActiveCampaign

ActiveCampaign helps your credit repair company to grow by giving your clients what they need, when they need it.

Credit heroes understand that each client’s story is unique. By using smart marketing automation tools like ActiveCampaign, they’re able to deliver unique customer experiences by:

  • Creating dynamic emails that are customized by a client’s data
  • Automatically moving a client through the buyer journey based on their engagement
  • Connecting to other tools for automatic data-sharing
  • Measuring user interaction to gain more knowledge of a client

The intuitive interface makes it easy to customize ActiveCampaign so that it always does the heavy lifting for you and your team.

3. Zapier

Zapier makes automation a digital breeze. The software moves information between tools so your hands are free for your best work.

Credit repair business owners love Zapier because it saves time, reduces errors, and helps them to provide a seamless customer experience. For example, if a client makes an appointment through your website, their information will be automatically passed on to your credit repair software (e.g., Credit Repair Cloud). Then, this information can be relayed to your marketing tool (e.g., ActiveCampaign) to kick off an email workflow that provides pricing, appointment details, or whatever your customer’s heart desires.

4. Asana

Setting a goal is easy. Seeing it through to completion can be much harder.

All business owners struggle at times to prioritize, often causing them to suffer from decision-fatigue and overwhelm. But by using a project management tool like Asana, you’re able to remove the day-to-day decision making that contributes to burn-out, leaving you with more time for strategic action.

With Asana, you’re able to break down your mission into bite-sized tasks and ensure that each task’s details are accurately recorded and tracked.

5. Google Suite

Many credit repair business owners work remotely and depend on cloud-based tools for seamless collaboration with their team and clients.

GoogleSuite (GSuite) offers a plethora of tools for the modern workforce so that business owners never miss a beat (unless they want to).

Collaboration is easy when all files saved in the cloud are tracked and updated in real-time. Day-to-day planning is stress-free when your calendar syncs across all devices.

Free tools within GSuite include:

  • GMail: one of the world’s favorite email providers
  • GSheets: spreadsheets that can be edited by multiple people in real-time
  • GSlides: Google’s answer to Microsoft PowerPoint
  • GHangouts: a place to send messages, make calls, and have group conversations
  • GCalendar: an e-diary for all of your important events and appointments

Setting up your own professional email with your website as the domain (i.e., not @gmail.com) is one of the most important GSuite benefits for credit repair business owners.

6. Acuity Scheduling

Credit repair business owners love spending their time talking to people – not scouring calendars trying to find the time to talk to people. They stay on top of their mission-driven schedules with project management tools like Asana, and GCalendar. As a result, they’re able to let Acuity Scheduling alleviate the back-and-forth of emails when arranging meetings.

In addition to Acuity for scheduling, credit heroes use credit repair software to automatically remind them of important tasks like monthly client follow-ups with alerts that sync to their calendars.

7. MyCreditRepairSite.com

 

Here’s one of the designs ready to plug-and-play for your credit repair company’s website.

These days, a company without a website is like a store without a front door. People might somehow find out what you’re selling, but they won’t have access to make a purchase.

8. Slack

A huge benefit of being a credit repair business owner is having the freedom to create a company that lets you and your team work flexibly, from anywhere.

Slack is the digital era’s answer to an office. It’s a chat system where you can share ideas, files, or Friday night plans with the team. Data-sharing across platforms is made easy through integrations with tools like Asana, GDrive, Zapier, and so on.

9. Call Loop

Credit repair business owners know that the work they do shines hope into darkness. So when an update is available on a client’s dispute letter, or credit status, the business owner wants to ensure that the client receives the information as soon as possible.

Call Loop helps credit heroes reach clients where they are through SMS, voice broadcasting, and voicemail drops. And, you guessed it, Call Loop integrates with other tools on this list so that everybody stays in-the-know.

10. Twilio

Twilio is a secure, cloud-based platform that can help you better connect with your customers from anywhere. Credit repair business owners love it because it helps them bring secure voice, video, and messaging communication to their clients. Whether you work from home or have clients who live far from your office, real-time communication tools for your business bridge the distance.

As a credit repair business owner, you can use Twilio for a lot of communication needs, including:

  • Video chat for your monthly check-ins with clients
  • Messaging on your website to respond to credit repair leads the moment they sense a tug to work on their credit score
  • Simpler and less expensive VoIP and traditional calls internally and for inbound and outbound calling
  • Integrating apps and communication platforms to streamline your workflow

11. HootSuite

Social media has multiple purposes: seeing what your friends are up to, sharing pictures of cats who are scared of cucumbers, and growing a seven-figure credit repair business.

Research by Ambassador found that 71 percent of people who had a positive social media experience with a company were likely to recommend it to others. Using social media for your credit repair company will increase your business growth by:

  • Helping you find your brand voice
  • Allowing customers and prospects to engage with you in different ways
  • Increasing brand awareness
  • Connecting you with new and different audiences
  • Increasing inbound traffic to your website
