"I joined ServeNow.com and within 48 hours I had obtained multiple requests for process service that paid for my initial joining fees and made a profit. It has also opened possibilities for future investigation assignments."

 Robert Bryant
 Bryant Investigations
 Winston Salem, NC

"About two weeks ago, I added my firm to ServeNow.com for the two counties that I service the most in Virginia. Within 48 hours of the ads going live, I had five out-of-state clients that I now service for, and the first weekend I received 18 calls on my 24-hour line. Of those I served 16. Not a day goes by that I am not receiving calls to have items served. Just yesterday the child welfare department added me to their list of servers. The one thing that all these calls have in common is ServeNow.com website. We have already started discussing adding associates to do nothing but process service.
The minimal amount that I spend with you has yielded the biggest bang for my dollar. I spend more on dinner with the wife then what I pay here. I cannot thank you all enough for being there!"

"You guys definitely deliver, and do what you say you're going to do. I like the fact that I always see PInow.com advertised all over the Internet."

 Robert Jack
 Innovative Investigative Services
 Mason, OH

"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."

Government Contracts: RFP's for Investigators and Process Servers

State and government contracts can provide process servers and investigators with steady, recurring revenue. Many ServeNow.com and PInow.com advertisers have been awarded contracts such as these as a result of being listed with us.

Government agencies advertise RFP's (request for proposal) for these contracts. As a free service to you, we provide the details of these contracts as they become available.

Would you like to be notified of Government Contract RFP's as they become available? If so, please join the following groups:
