"PInow.com has made a significant impact on our business! Our case load has dramatically increased over the last year that we have advertised with this great service. When you compare PInow.com to the cost of other modes of advertising, there simply is no denying that the results are real, as well as economical. Our agency experienced responses only two days after starting our listing with PInow.com!!! We will definitely continue to advertise with this service."

"I think PInow.com is one of the greatest sources of investigative clients from all over the world. They offer a tremendous opportunity for PIs 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."
