Basically this business is about learning how to help people improve their credit rating. Your job is to help and advice people who are having financial difficulty , and to help solve their problems.

As time goes by you will become more experienced and you will be able to handle credit repair effortlessly. No matter what the economic climate your services will always be in demand, since people will always need financial help in any economy; this means that you and your credit repair business will be needed always. It also means you will always have the ability to earn a good income.

First some tips – and a few warnings!

Things you’ll need to begin your profitable credit repair business:

– Knowledge about credit repair related laws
– Proficiency in analyzing and improving a credit report and credit score
– A high-quality course in starting a credit repair business
– A strong desire to help people with problem finances


1. Before launching your credit repair business, offer your services for free (if possible, under the guidance of experts) and check out how you are doing.
2. Ensure you know the law well and that you stay within its boundaries no matter how tempting it is to “manage” a few rough corners
3. Affiliate your credit repair business with one or more highly reputed regulatory bodies such as the BBB (Better Business Bureau) or ECRA (Ethical Credit Repair Alliance) in order to promote an impeccable image


1. Beware of the temptation to hurry things along; in such cases you may be tempted to bend laws and thereby compromise your reputation. This is a trap you do NOT want to fall into!
2. Do not be in too big a hurry to launch your credit repair business. Learn the ropes and start by offering a “Freebie” or two to a close friend or family member until you are confident you are ready to go “public.”
3. Never put your profit above the needs of your client. This is being “penny wise pound foolish.”

All Right, let’s begin

Step 1
Find a good training program that will teach you how to go about starting and operating a credit repair business. Search the Internet for those available, and compare features and costs. And keep uppermost in your mind to look for value! – look not only at the price, but for what you get for your money.

Contact the seller and be leery of anyone unable or unwilling to answer your questions. Try and find a program that provides everything you will need at a price that doesn’t break the bank.

Step 2
Just purchasing a course is not enough. Do some outside research and take every opportunity to supplement your knowledge. Learn all you can in regard to legal issues related to credit. While you can glean a great deal of valuable information from the Internet, some online training related to credit repair, legal issues, and debt issues are a good idea to supplement your knowledge.

Step 3
Make contact with other professionals in the business and learn all you can from them. A good resource is the Ethical Credit Repair Alliance, where members can interact with one another

Step 4
Your first “clients” should be those whom we already know; friends, family, and acquaintances

Step 5
Marketing your business is crucial. Make sure you learn how to market, and your business will thrive

Step 6
Your customer’s needs must always come before everything else. After all, if you want to do this business right you must know that your primary task is to help those in need. If you don’t get this right, you won’t be in business very long

Also remember that marketing and service quality converge at a certain point – because every time you provide excellent service, you generate an army of word-of-mouth promoters for your business!

Step 7
Keep growing your business all the time. Continue learning and apply that knowledge to promote your business. As your credit repair business continues to grow, you will learn more about fixing credit reports and improving credit scores, and you will become more adept at dealing with complex matters related to your client’s credit.

What better way you generate wealth while at the same time helping others solve their problems?

The credit repair business is not only very lucrative, but very satisfying as well! It’s a business that lets you help those in need while earning a very good living at the same time.

What more could you want in a business? The time to start is now.
