Why Join Your State Associations?
by Bob Gulinello, Founder & Past President of the NYSPPSA

Several people have asked me recently, "Why should I join a state association? After all, it costs $75 - $100 per year, and that's a lot of money!"

"My phone has been ringing off the hook with new investigation business since I signed up PInow.com. Thanks so much!"

 Gordon D. Bowers
 Atlantic Bureau of Investigations
 Rehoboth Beach, DE

"For the first time since I have been on my own, my advertising is working. I am getting some quality cases and great leads from PInow.com.

With print advertisments and Yellow Pages, I could expect a 10% chance of a phone contact making it to the acitve case file. With PInow.com, it is more like 75%!

Do you have any idea how many advertisers would like that rate of return?"

 William "Moose" Moseley
 Chameleon Investigations
 Phoenix, AZ

"I think PInow.com is one of the greatest sources of investigative clients from all over the world.

They offer a tremendous opportunity for PI's to gain targeted market exposure without doing any of the legwork and that certainly makes them one of the best returns on investment I can possibly suggest."

 Jimmie Mesis, Editor-in-Chief
