Help for Hoarding is Available

Hoarding-before-afterDuring the past nine years, the staff of Bio-Trauma 911, Inc. has helped hundreds of hoarders in Indianapolis and surrounding cities to reclaim their living space and lives.  Our staff of caring and compassionate experts work with hoarders and their family members to make the remediation process as pleasant as it can be.  As experts in this field, our staff understands that it may take several weeks, even months, to get everyone on board so that the process can be started with full participation from the hoarder.

Hoarding or Compulsive Hoarding Disorder makes it very difficult, and nearly impossible, for a person to discard or part with possessions because of a perceived need to save them.  The mere thought of throwing away an item of perceived value or importance will cause distress and hardship for the hoarder.  Regardless of actual value or worth, excessive accumulation of items will occur.  This accumulation, over time, may become so severe that the hoarder and/or other family members find it very difficult to live a normal and healthy life.

So often, our initial contact with the client comes by way of a concerned family member or friend. Unfortunately it is all too common for hoarders to live in isolation. Many family members have no idea that their loved one is in fact a hoarder.  In the home of a family member and friend with a hoarding disorder, one would typically find the counter tops, desks, sinks, stoves, stairways and nearly all other surfaces to be stacked with items.  When no more can be stacked on these surfaces, these items may begin to clutter up the garage, storage barns, vehicles and yard.  Among the first signs of hoarding disorder will be the amassing of items and the difficulty in discarding of these items.  These signs or symptoms may often surface during the teenage years.  As the person ages, the situation becomes progressively worse and more difficult to treat.

While our company is a strong proponent of professional intervention and treatment for hoarding disorder, it’s not unusual for hoarders, with the help of family members, to seek out help on their own.  It is during this time, or after a successful treatment program, that our staff will meet with the hoarder and typically a family member. During the initial meeting, which may come after weeks of telephone conversations, we discuss the remediation or cleaning process.  At this point or a short time later, we like to have a full understanding of the value and importance the hoarder places on items in the home.  Often times it’s important to save certain items, as not everything should be discarded.  Likewise, during the cleaning process, our staff will take time to search for and retain: momentos, valuables, photos, important documents and other items that shouldn’t be thrown away.

To properly clean a home of a hoarder generally requires several of our technicians to work long days for the better part of a week.  It is not an inexpensive process but one that many hoarders find to be invaluable.  The excitement, joy, disbelief and complete relief expressed by so many of our clients is a true testament to our unwavering commitment and dedication to our clients and their goal of realizing a better way of living.

During the past few days we have been busy upgrading CleanupDirectory.com so that new features are available to you as a business owner.  Here are some of the features that are now available to our listing members:

  • Add a video you may have hosted at Vimeo.  Same as above, just add the code of the video that is found in the URL in the space provided in your “edit listing” screen.

Are You Converting Visitors into Paying Customers?

CleanupBlog_Advertising6

Happy New Year from all of us at CleanupDirectory.com.

As we start a new year most of us will consider making changes in our personal lives.  Equally important will be the changes you choose to make in your business. As our personal lives, our happiness and level of success are often intertwined with our business and professional lives, changes to either will often affect one another.

Following our previous email, we received numerous responses and requests from members of CleanupDirectory.com.  To those of you who have asked us to assist with your website optimization and social media marketing, we will respond to you very soon.  To those members who have renewed your membership with our crime scene cleanup directory, thank you very much.

In light of business changes you may choose to make in 2014, we would like to take a minute to discuss a recent comment made by one of our members.  The comment expressed this member’s concern that he was not receiving enough business leads from CleanupDirectory.com.  While this is a very valid concern for any business owner who spends money for a business directory listing, we submit the following in response.

CleanupDirectory.com brings in thousands of potential customers every month.  Unlike directories similar to YP.com, which charges hundreds of dollars a month and caters to customers and businesses in every industry, CleanupDirectory.com changes only $100 a year and targets individuals only looking for crime & trauma scene remediation services.

CleanupDirectory.com can bring potential clients to your doorstep, but that’s as far as we can bring them.  We cannot bring them into your business or close the deal.  This is your job.  If you are not reaping the benefits of a paid membership with CleanupDirectory.com, you need to look at several factors that may be affecting your ability to convert website visitors into paying customers.  Here are some ideas:

  • What does your directory listing look like at CleanupDirectory.com? Is it thorough and concise? Do you have links to your website? Do you have enough information on your listing page to entice someone to click through to your website? Do you include pictures and sales literature in your listing?
  • When a potential client clicks through to your website, what does he or she find?  Like your directory listing page, is your website clear, concise and easy to navigate?  Do you use neutral colors or bright bold colors? Do you include a “Call to Action” on each page of your website? Do all of your internal links work?
  • If a customer is pleased with your directory listing page and website, he or she may feel comfortable enough to call you. Now think about your method of accepting incoming calls.  Can a potential client always reach a member of your staff to discuss his or her needs or are they sent to an answering service or voicemail.  In this industry most individuals will want to talk to a live person who is knowledgeable about their unique situation.  An answering service or voicemail will typically send them in search of another company for help.
  • Does your website allow for an individual to complete a detailed email/contact form to explain their situation?  So many potential clients, especially hoarders, will want to first make contact via email before making the initial phone call.
  • Do you have a means for potential clients to chat with a help desk or support personnel?  If not, very inexpensive (and often free) systems exist that will integrate with your existing website.
  • How do you track incoming traffic to your website?  How do you track incoming calls to your business? How many people have found you through CleanupDirectory.com and simply tell you “I found you online”.  An individual may very well find you on CleanupDirectory.com, then conduct a search of Google to see what your company has to offer or if there are any negative entries about your company.  The individual will then click through to your website and simply tell you “I found you through your website”. 

The bottom line is we can only do so much for you.  Take advantage of the potential clients who visit CleanupDirectory.com each month. Treat them to a well-designed and thoughtfully layed out directory listing. Take time to redesign your website (if that’s what it needs) so that it helps you to receive an initial contact, whether by email or phone, from a potential client.  Remember – the key to business success is your ability to convert potential clients into paying clients.

  • If you need help with your business listing, please ask us.
  • If you can’t remember your username or password to log into your directory control panel, please ask us.
  • If you would like to create a new account and start over, please feel free to do so.

There are very few limits to what you can do at CleanupDirectory.com.  The amount of information you can present to potential clients through our directory is extensive.  We offer you all of the tools you need to put your company in front of people who need your services. You should take full advantage of this opportunity.

In closing consider your listing with CleanupDirectory.com and the information you provide to entice a click through to your website. Consider your website and all that it has to offer. And, take time to create a free listing and write business related articles at FactSnap.com.  Again, the more an individual sees and recognizes your company name in print and advertising, the more likely that person will be to contact you when your services are needed.

Best of luck to you and all your business endeavors in 2014.

A Simple Approach to Better Business

Alert-Worldwide-Logo-A3As business owners, we spend countless hours trying to find the right way to advertise. Every month our hard earned money is allocated to business directories, phone books and pay per click ads.  We mail sales literature, we pass out trinkets with our company name and contact info and attend trade shows.  While these efforts are probably not in vain, how much revenue can be directly attributed to each these advertising methods? What is the return on your investment (ROI)?  How much money are you really making?

The purpose of this article is not to convince you to curtail or to stop your current advertising program.  It is meant to convey to you other options and opportunities that you may not be taking full advantage of.  Most of what I will talk about will cost you very little, thus resulting in a much better ROI.

Companies like Bio-Trauma 911 and Trinity Executive Services, Inc. have for many years used Alert Worldwide, LLC for their internet advertising needs. Together these two companies bring in millions of dollars in revenue each year, with very little of that revenue allocated to advertising.

Over the years, I have written numerous articles about website optimization for the Security and Crime Scene Cleanup Industries.  While a highly optimized website will benefit a business in any industry, this is a crime scene cleanup blog and this article should relate to your industry.

Many of you reading this article are members of CleanupDirectory.com and have a business listing through this directory.  While some of the directory listings I’ve viewed are very well written and should generate some response from potential clients, others are not.  Here are some of the discrepancies I’ve noted:

  • Very short descriptions, sometimes just a few sentences in length
  • No external links pointing to your company website
  • No links to your Twitter or LinkedIn profiles
  • Broken links to your company website
  • Incomplete or non-existent addresses or phone numbers
  • No pictures, sales literature
  • No videos

An internet business directory will do four things for your business:

  1. Drive traffic to your website, or
  2. Result in a direct call from the directory, and/or
  3. Create name recognition, or
  4. Turn people off and drive them to your competitor

Ideally numbers 1-3 above will apply.

I’ve used the CleanupDirectory.com as an example to help me illustrate the point(s) I want to make in this article.  Please allow me to preface this next paragraph with the fact that the internet generates billions of dollars in revenue for business owners.  Much of this revenue comes by way of online business directories and keyword searches through Google, Yahoo and Bing.

I told you earlier in this article that you could generate more revenue for your business while spending very little to do so.  Here is how it can be done:

  • Don’t be afraid of small business directories like CleanupDirectory.com.  Well over 200,000 searches for services you offer have been conducted through this directory. Other business directories see similar stats.  At $99 a year for a business listing, you have very little to lose.  Remember the four options above? A well written business listing will generally result in a phone call, a visit to your webpage or name recognition.
  • What about name recognition?  Many people who happen to find you on the internet may not be ready or willing to purchase your services at the time they discover you.  However, the more an individual sees your company name on the internet, in print advertising, on a billboard, etc., the more likely he or she will be to call you when your services are needed.
  • A well written directory listing page, such as the listing page of Bio-Trauma 911, may be indexed by search engines.  To begin with your directory listing page should have no less than 250 words and the page should contain keywords and keyword phrases (e.g. crime scene cleanup, biohazard remediation, hoarding).  Your directory listing through CleanupDirectory.com, FactSnap.com or YP.com may very well show up on a Search Engine Results Page (SERP) ahead of your own company website.  This is another form of advertising that will benefit your company.
  • Banner ads are important.  While many of us never click a banner ad, they allow for us to put our company name in front of potential customers/clients.  Again, you’re creating name recognition.  CleanupDirectory.com allows you to upload banner ads for free if you’re a member.  Banner ads are not too difficult to create and for a small fee the staff at CleanupDirectory.com will create one for you if you are unable to.  Look for any site that will allow you to upload a banner ad.
  • Articles and blogs are another cost effective way to put your business in front of prospective clients.  FactSnap.com allows you to write articles about your business for FREE!  The staff of CleanupDirectory.com will accept your article and reprint it in their blog for free as well.  Throughout the internet there exists hundreds of similar sites where you can write about your business and its services.
  • Create a Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn profile for your company. Spend time to add relevant information to these profile pages. Use business directories and your company website to drive traffic to these profiles. Often times these social media profile pages will have more relevant and up-to-date information about your company and its services.
  • A well written and highly optimized website that is search engine friendly will probably be one of your best business assets.  Finding your website on page one of Google for any number of keyword search terms is the holy grail of internet advertising. Google search nearly any keyword phrase pertaining to the Crime Scene Cleanup Industry and if you’re located in the Midwestern United States, you’ll probably find Bio-Trauma 911 and/or CleanupDirectory.com on the first page of the SERP.  You may have a very nice looking website that is attractive, flashy and full of useful information but if you’re not on page one of the SERP, your website isn’t doing you much good.  Find a company or individual who understands website optimization and work towards improving your placement.

There are hundreds (maybe thousands) of places you can find to spend your hard earned money on advertising. Find what works best for you, keep advertising sources that generating a healthy ROI, increase your name recognition and improve your placement in organic search listings.  Remember, while you may not always be able to directly link a phone call or website visit to a particular directory, your business and website visitors are coming from somewhere.  You never know when your next client may have found your business six months ago through a small online directory and today needs your help.

Are You Getting 15,000 Visitors a Month?

CleanupBlog_Advertising7

CleanupDirectory.com and its sister sites now receive over 15,000 visitors a month.  Our visitors are looking for Crime & Trauma Scene Cleanup companies that service all parts of the United States.  Visitors are also searching our business directory for property restoration, mold removal and other biohazard remediation services.

In addition to our business directory, visitors can also find and print our free PDF Crime & Trauma Scene Cleanup Directory.  This handy desktop version is perfect for the desk drawer or maintenance folder and is a quick access guide for insurance adjusters and other businesses that may be in need of the services you offer.  This directory is made up of the paid listing members of CleanupDirectory.com.  Our current version will be updated with new members at the end of May 2012.

Crime Scene Cleanup Companies Needed

Cleanupdirectory.com has too many work requests to be acted upon by our current list of active members.  As an example, our directory just received a request for a decomposition cleanup in California.  Unfortunately, our member list does not include any California crime scene cleanup companies.

On almost a daily basis our office receives crime & trauma scene cleanup requests from all parts of the United States.  While these service requests are sent out to our current listing members, many are in areas (such as California) that are not serviced by our current members. 

CleanupDirectory.com brings in 1,000’s of unique visitors every month.  Our listing members receive business exposure through their listing page, which includes photos, sales literature, banner ads and links to website, email, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and much more.  Through our sister sites, our directory generates service leads that come directory to our office.  These leads are then sent out to our listing members.

Please take a few minutes to visit our directory at CleanupDirectory.com.  If you find that your company services a particular state or an area where we have no other companies listed, please consider adding a listing.  Most of our most popular categories have received over 10,000 hits.  These hits do not include the thousands of visitors received by our sister websites.

Visitors to this page may also be looking for: crime scene cleanup advertising, hoarding cleanup, suicide cleanup, gross filth cleanup

Who’s Going Out of Business?

Sometimes we have no choice. For one reason or another a sustainable revenue is beyond our reach. Business must close for the last time and there’s nothing we can do about it. Or is there?

On more than one occassion our office has been contacted by a business owner in search of a buyer for their fledgeling business.  After less than a year in operation as a crime scene cleanup business and thousands in debt, one by one business owners decide it’s time to throw in the towel.  When asked why so soon, the answer is generally related to either a lack of business or too much competition.

Without a doubt business in the crime scene cleanup industry is sporadic.  There seems to be no rhyme or reason why one week there’s more work than can adequtely be staffed, while the next week the only incoming calls are from a fast talking salesman promising to make you rich with a $10 investment. But, it doesn’t have to be this way.

CleanupDirectory.com comes through AGAIN

CleanupDirectory.com is the most popular Crime Scene Cleanup Directory around.  With well over 6,000 visitors a month and over 80,000 visitors since its creation, people in need of assistance turn to CleanupDirectory.com.  Through our directory member’s listing pages and sister sites such as this one in Georgia, our members are easy to find and easy to contact.  Gone are the days when victims and traumatized family members had to sift through hundreds of search engine listings to find a company in their city or neighborhood.   CleanupDirectory.com makes it easy and our efforts are routinely praised by those who have found our members to be polite, knowledgeable and helpful.

Due to our numerous websites, blogs and directories, CleanupDirectory.com receives service requests from potential clients on a weekly basis.  As our members know, these are routinely sent via email as soon as they come into our office.  Recently we sent one such request to our members and received this response back from the client.

 Name: Lori

          City: Prescott Valley         

          State: Arizona

          Email Address:  (Hidden for Privacy)

          How Can We Help: Hoarding

Message: Thank you for your immediate assistance.  Richard Cota called me within 24 hours & is very professional. Making me comfortable in my time of need.  Richard came by today to evaluate my situation & a time frame for me to organize before service is started.   I’ve tried for several years to find someone to come in and help, but some individuals really don’t have their heart in this business & Phoenix / Tucson is a long way from Prescott Valley.  Thanks again I’ll email you once the service is completed.

These are the types of emails we receive from clients that we send to our CleanupDirectory.com members.  Unfortunately, we still do not have enough members to cover or handle all of the requests we receive.  Too many requests for service go unanswered simply because we do not have members in the state or city where the request originated.  

If you would like to receive more exposure for your business and the opportunity to bid on the Service Requests that we receive on a regular basis, please consider joining CleanupDirectory.com by following this link JOIN NOW. 

By joining CleanupDirectory.com will you have access to our endless supply of Service Requests generated by our sister websites.  You will also be able to take advantage of the 1,000’s of potential clients who visit our directory each month.  At only $99 a year, CleanupDirectory.com is the most cost effective advertising you will find that actually brings clients to your business through emails, phone calls and website exposure.

Where Can I Find Help?

We want to reach out to those of you who want more crime scene cleanup business (including hoarding, accidents and other incidents involving blood and bodily fluids).  After nearly three years of helping victims and family members find the help they need, we’re still falling short in our efforts.  On nearly a weekly basis, a victim, family member or friend contacts us for assistance.  Far too often we have to turn down their request for help, simply because we do not have enough members to assist them. 

As a nationwide directory that ranks at the top of Google for many industry keyword searches, we get calls for service and directory visitors from every city and state in the United States.  Although some of the best and largest crime scene cleanup companies are members of our directory, our relatively small list of members are unable to service the entire US.

Here’s a more detailed look at why we need your help:

  • CleanupDirectory.com receives over 5000 visitors a month.  These visitors search or view over 16,450 pages in our directory each month.
  • Many of our visitors are looking for a crime or trauma scene cleanup company in their area
  • There are thirty-one states (31) in our directory that none of our members service!
  • There are hundreds of cities in the US that our current members do not service
  • We routinely receive calls and emails from potential customers who we are unable to assist

Cleanupdirectory.com recently launched 100’s of city optimized websites, such as http://www.detroit-michigan.hoardingbloodcrimedeath.com/.  Sites such as this one generate service requests that are routinely received by our office.  These requests are immediately sent to our listing members.  Unfortunately, we do not send many of these requests because we have no one available to help in the customer’s city or state.  Here is a sample request that was sent to our members today:

Name: Crystal

City: Denver

State: Colorado

Phone Number: (XXX) XXX-XXXX

Email Address: XXXXX@XXXXXX.com

How Can We Help: Decomposition

Message: My estranged husband died a several days ago. He was found aprox 3 or4 days after death. He died of alcohol poisoning. I have to.clean up his apartment since i am next of kin.

Hoarding, Blood, Crime & Death

Hoarding, blood, crime and death is the topic of our newest website, HoardingBloodCrimeDeath.com.  This particular website works in conjuction with CleanupDirectory.com and serves to funnel internet traffic to our member’s listing pages.  Since its launch, we have received several emails regarding the purpose of our newest website.  Our team thought it would be helpful if we explained HoardingBloodCrimeDeath.com and its overall purpose.

Although CleanupDirectory.com remains our only “directory” style website in the Crime Scene Cleanup Industry, we are in the process of creating hundreds of sister sites to drive traffic to CleanupDirectory.com.  The above referenced domain, HoardingBloodCrimeDeath.com, is one of those sister sites.  This particular domain is comprised of over 100 sub-domains that have been created and optimized for individual cities and industry specific keywords.  As with most of our sites, HoardingBloodCrimeDeath.com has been optimized for Google.  Our site rankings with other search engines may or may not be similar.

How to Start a Crime Scene Cleanup Business

On a daily basis our staff receives emails from individuals who are interested in starting a crime scene cleanup business.  Many of those who contact us have previous medical, military or law enforcement experience.  Very few have business experience. 

The Crime Scene Cleanup Industry is unlike many service industries.  Take for example the janitorial industry or security industry.  When a business owner secures a contract in either of these industries, he or she has the opportunity to cater to that particular client on a regular basis.  Both janitorial and security services are typically provided on a daily basis, which provides for a sustained and calculated income.  Crime & trauma scene cleanup does not offer this same type of job security.

Although skills learned in the medical, military and law enforcement fields can play an important role in your decision to start a crime scene cleanup business, it takes much more to be successful. Unlike many service industries where you may be able to rely on one or two big contracts to generate an adequate income, you must willing and able to work harder and smarter in building and maintaining your crime scene cleanup business.
