I see it every day inside our Credit Repair Cloud Facebook community.
Somebody decides to start their own credit repair business, they begin to follow my proven way to get your first client within 24 hours, and guess what?
The only problem is, it happened so fast, they don't know what to do next.
So today, I’m sharing a high level view of the process so if you’re in the same boat as a lot of our Credit Heroes are when they're just starting out, you’ll feel confident as you grow your business, get results for your clients, and change a lotta lives.
Okay, when you get that first service agreement signed, it can be both exciting and nerve wracking at the same time, because now it’s all becoming real.
You’ve got a job to do and a life to change!
But don’t panic.
For those of you who took our awesome Credit Hero Challenge already, you learned all about the benefits of starting out with free clients, like family, friends or even complete strangers.
The whole point of this is to get practice, gain confidence and get a bunch of positive reviews, some killer testimonials and most importantly get referrals.
In the Credit Hero Challenge, we walk you through step by step on exactly what to do and how to do it with a proven and repeatable process.
But what about paid clients?
Once your first client enrolls, you need to start by “onboarding”.
At this point you may have already received their credit reports, imported them into Credit Repair Cloud, ran the simple audit and closed the deal.
And, by the way, you can do all this for a LEAD, before you make them into a client.
The next step is to setup your new client in your Credit Repair Cloud software so you’ll need to finish filling in your client’s profile, set the status as “Client”, set a start date, assign the client to yourself or a team member, turn the portal access on and choose the agreement you want to use.
If it’s a paid client, you’ll need to set up payment arrangements using your preferred payment method.
Your client will receive login credentials and they need to log in from their smartphone, then they sign your agreement, and take a picture of their ID and utility bill. Once that’s done, you're all set. You're ready to start repairing credit!
This is where it gets really fun, but can feel overwhelming at first - and that’s okay!
Start by reviewing and tagging items in the pending credit report, once you do this the entire lifecycle will have been planned out.
Next, run the dispute wizard and choose the items you want to dispute.
Print and mail the letters with the copy of the clients ID and utility bill.
Now it’s time to wait.
But that doesn’t mean your work is done. You want to make sure your client feels fully supported during those 45 days of waiting.
A great way to do this is through automated emails you set up ahead of time.
That was easy wasn't it?
Now, to REALLY grow your business, you need to maximize the benefits of every single client by collecting, advertising and marketing each result, review, testimonial and referral to its fullest potential.
You can also use this time of waiting to get ready for the amazing testimonials and results you’re about to get!
First, set up your free business listings on Google Places, Yelp and TrustPilot. You're gonna need them later so your clients can post reviews about you.
Then, when your first client sends you results they receive from the bureaus, especially when you've gotten a deletion or a score increase, be sure to post them on your personal and business Facebook page, your website and blog, Instagram, LinkedIn and any other platform that you can reach potential clients.
Just be sure to blur or mark out any personally identifying information.
These results you post are going to grow your business.
They're proof that you're the credit expert, so brag about them! It’s exciting, you should be proud, and this will attract more clients!
Next, reach out to your client and ask if they can give you a review and testimonial for you.
You're going to use these, and repurpose them ALL OVER the place.
But, don’t just settle for a written review or testimonial, ask for a video too!
And also ask your clients to post reviews on the business listing platforms like Yelp, Google, and Trustpilot.
Then once they do, copy and repost those reviews and videos on your website, blog, facebook and any other platform that you can reach potential clients.
As you gain email contacts, send out a newsletter or drip email to them, showing them how you helped your client.
Next, don’t be shy - ask for referrals!
Ask your clients if they know anyone that could use your help. This is how you grow your business and gain more clients quickly without spending a dime on advertising!
Then simply follow up with your referrals and convert them to paying clients.
Lather, rinse, repeat!
Before you know it, you’ll have a profitable credit repair business and change a lotta lives.
