My book addresses the six problems Investigators and Researchers face when conducting Investigative Internet Research.

What They Don’t Teach in Private Investigator School

Do you have any of these six problems?

1)  You need to produce a better investigation report that includes Investigative Internet Research (IIR), but you do not know how to do the research and produce a professional report in a timely and profitable manner.

2)  As a new manager or PI agency owner, you are struggling with reporting processes and IIR.

3)  As a member of a group of Investigators you need to collaborate to conduct IIR and produce a single report without time-wasting meetings and conference calls.

4)  You are an experienced Investigator. But you are still looking for new skills and opportunities? That’s the Investigator’s best habit: continuous learning.

5)  You are not making enough money from your hard work and looking for a way to earn more money.

6)  You need to cut costs and save time. The data you need is out there, but you don’t know how to find it on-time and on-budget.

If you are not a Private Investigator, you can still apply everything in Sources and Methods for Investigative Internet Research to conduct superior research and report your findings as well as any high-priced consultant.

If you are a new PI agency owner, then this book will open your eyes to the challenges of Investigative Internet Research (IIR) and the challenges of reporting the results of your IIR efforts.
