Prospecting Is The Life Of Your Credit Repair Company

Prospecting is the life of any kind of business. If there are no new leads coming into your business then you are going to have a difficult time running a successful credit repair company because without clients there is no business.

This is one of main tasks that a credit repair company needs to focus on. There are many ways to attract new prospects in your pipe line. Just so we are on the same page throughout this article, when the words “prospect” or “lead” is used it is meant as a potential customer, someone who hasn’t paid yet. When the words “client” or “customer” is used it is referring to someone who has already paid for your service.

So in order to get clients you first need to get prospects. You can get prospects by many methods

1) By asking for referrals from others. A good method to use for this is to offer a commission to affiliates. They bring you a client and you pay this affiliate a flat fee per client. An excellent tool that you can use to recruit affiliates is by working with portals. A portal will allow your affiliates to submit their leads directly to you. It will also give them access to updates on when their commission is going to be paid. This is an important tool when trying to recruit affiliates to promote your Credit Repair Company. They are in a sense partnering with you to expand your business. Make sure to make it a compelling offer, your affiliates are going to be bringing leads your way that you didn’t have to acquire yourself. Just imagine having a few dozen affiliates brining you a few deals per week. The best way to motivate is to compensate. So treat your affiliates good, they can provide a large portion of your companies revenue.

2) Word of mouth. This method is relatively easy, since you are in the business of repairing credit, and a good percentage of our population has credit problems, you just have to open your mouth and let people know that your company exists. There are many people that carry around business cards with them everywhere they go: grocery store, networking events, Doctor visits, the list goes on and on. They do this because they know that the power of word of mouth can bring in new customers and simply because it works. That prospect gets to see you in the eyes and gets to meet you in person. This prospect will then be left with your business card in hand, always keeping you in mind if they were to ever need of your services.

3) Advertising: There are literally hundreds of ways to advertise. We will just discuss a few. There are two ways that you can advertise: there is the off-line method and then there is the online method.

Off-line Methods:

– Handing out business cards in malls

A Review of the IDA Marketing Services Multi Level Marketing Company

IDA Marketing Services registered their website domain in July 2004. The organization name behind it is IDA Business Services, Inc. and the registrant details originate out of Richland, Washington. This is an MLM Company that sells Car Insurance and they are the sole distributor of the Collision Deductible Reserve Plan (CDRP). This program was made to help their customers lower their cost of auto insurance and earn money at the same time without having to use another Insurance Agent or change Insurance Companies.

The CRDP through IDA Marketing Services is promoted via MLM Distributors all over the United States, so I think this program is only for U.S. Marketing Reps. This company wants to plant the seeds to create the largest networking distribution channel to sell their products. Their goal is to assist americans to break free from debt by providing these types of unique business opportunities like selling Car Insurance.

The leadership of IDA Marketing Services include Torry Webb, Justin Brunson, Gerald McElroy, Robert Schmitt and Rich Hawkins. Included in this leadership team are Fortune 500 Executives and Real-Time Network Marketing leaders currently in the field. When I was searching for the news information for this website, the latest news I saw dated back to September 24th 2008 where they said IDA was in Pre-Launch in Portland, Oregon. I haven’t seen any more recent news posting on their website other than this.

The CRDP offered through IDA Marketing Services is a product that will allow them to raise their auto collision insurance deductable to One Grand. This program is supposed to allow you to save 10-40% on our Insurance without having to find a new Insurance Carrier. This will leverage themselves so their overall Insurance Premium will lower as well. Over time, the consumer of this product could end up saving thousands over their driving career so that’s the gist of this product and what they are offering.

Once you raise your collision deductibles you can use this money you save to fund your IDA Marketing Services CDRP Account.

If a collision deductible is due before your CDRP account matures, the company will fund you the entire payment in advance even if you have just made one lump sum payment. You can pay these advances back to the company at $25.00 per month and they don’t charge any interest or penalties for this service. Once you build up your CDRP account and it becomes mature, you can use this extra money you save each month to help with your debt and to start building more wealth.

Just on a quick glance there were at least 4 pages that came up not found. This gives me the initial impression that the company had intentions of launching but never followed through. However I took a look at the Better Networker which is a Portal Site for Network Marketers, and there was one rep promoting it as recent of July 2009. So maybe they ran into issues and looks like they’ll be launching after all. This company supposedly has been 9 years in the making.

When I did a bit more research I discovered that the Vice Pres for a major Insurance Company in Washington joined the IDA team. Also I read on a rep website that people involved in the conception and execution of this MLM Opportunity held some very high positions in some household name Insurance Companies already. If this is the case, we’ll be hearing a lot more about this company later on.
