You are selling various benefits and services of an Estate Planning Service Program through a membership enrollment process.
People ages 60-80 with an approximate net worth of $200,000 to $800,000
While a background in insurance or financial planning may prove beneficial, it is not nescessary. We provide a comprehensive training program that will provide you the knowlege necessary to succeed. However, some type of prior sales experience is necessary, preferably "in-home" sales.
No. Our program is considered a "service", not insurance, and therefore no license is required.
Training is comprised of a series of online video tutorials, followed by a two-day online webinar. Additionally in-field training may be provided depending on geographical location or availability.
Yes. All new representatives are provided with a direct-mail drop intended to generate an initial group of new leads (a primer, if you will). With each sale resulting from those leads or any other lead source, an additional mail drop will be made, based on the volume and frequency of total sales. (For example, each sale can trigger an 1500-2000 piece mailing). The more you sell, the more leads you will earn. There is no cap on the amount of leads that can be earned and there is no cost to the representative under this program, nor is there a cost for lead drops made based on sales. Based on availability, you may also have access to our matured lead data base. This database consists of leads which have been previously assigned to another representative, but did not result in a sale. In some instances, these leads may never have been followed up or contacted, but were received longer than 90 days ago.
Yes and No. As stated above, we make an initial lead drop on your behalf to prime your account with new leads. This practice results in a $750.00 up front expense to the company for each new representative. We co-op $500.00 of that expense and ask that you co-op the remaining $250.00. Once you achieve your 5th enrollment with the company, the $250.00 is automatically refunded to you. In the net, your cost is $0. Thus, the yes and no. Aside from the refundable $250.00 co-op fee, there are no other expenses involved. This includes all other polnt-of-sale materials, presentation book, business cards, etc..
Yes. In fact, if you buy leads on your own, we'll actually co-op one-third of the actual cost through our Lead Partnership Program.
You are. We believe strongly in the philosophy that there is no better quality of appointment than one you have set for yourself. No one cares about your time or paycheck more than you. You should expect to spend approximately 8 to 10 hours per week on the phone setting appointments. This continual time comment to phone work is absolutely critical to your success in this business. Without it you will fail. If you have any phone reluctance, this position isn’t for you.
Not officially. However, we use a common sense rule; If you are selling, it simply doesn't make sense to hire someone in your back yard and dilute your opportunity to earn a living. Conversely, if you are not productive, then yes, we may hire someone to increase sales within your territory. Is there a formalized presentation? Yes. Our presentation can be used in the form of a flip chart, laptop or mobile device such as an lPad.
Except for certain bonuses, which are paid monthly, all commissions are paid weekly. So if you make a sale this week (Monday-Sunday), you can expect to be paid on Friday of next week. All compensation is paid via Electronic Funds Transfer.
While we do not have a specific "sales quota", you will miss out on certain monthly bonuses, if you don't hit your monthly benchmark.
Yes. You are considered a 1099 Independant Contractor under our agreement.
Your income is completely dependent on your own sales ability and potential. Full time dedicated representatives can expect to earn between $65,000 and $100,000 Including bonuses.
No. Because you are an independent contractor, there are no traditional employee benefits provided with this position. However, being an independent contractor can offer you significant tax advantages. For example, you will be able to write off business mileage, home office and other related business expenses such as computer, phone, internet, etc.. In addition, you may be eligible to contribute to a simplified employee pension. This program allows you to write off up to 25% of your unused net income up to certain limits. Sometimes these tax benefits can significantly outweigh those offered by traditional employer/employee relationships.
Yes. Each year the top 10 producers and one "President's Pick", along with their guest earn a spot at our annual convention. Past convention destinations include Alaska, Spain, Mexico, Jamaica, the Caribbean to name a few.
Realistically, you can start within 1 to 3 weeks depending on our training schedule, however, this 'may’ affect how quickly your new leads are available to you.
