Financial Education Services or FES, is a well established company in the financial services arena. Its core product is the Protection Plan. The Protection Plan is a set of credit centric services revolving around credit restoration or what the public calls credit repair.
About Financial Education Services
Financial Education Services (FES) has a unique direct sales business model where individuals become independent Agents and sell the FES services. FES Agents also have the opportunity to build a team of Agents. This gives them the ability to do far more sales and earn far more income than they could on their own.
The advantages of FES over starting your own credit repair business are many and are addressed in another blog post. In this post I want to discuss the best way to learn this business if you want to get started as an Agent with FES.
Learn the FES Business from a Top Producer
The best way to learn this business at a high level is to learn it from someone that has reached a high level. Often people take advice and try to learn from people that haven’t achieved what they are trying to achieve. That makes no sense. So, this logic holds true for learning the Financial Education Services business.
Who is Dale Guiducci in FES?
In order to establish my credibility with you, even though it’s not typically the way I like to operate, please allow me to share some of the accomplishments I’ve had with FES.
I have been in the top 5 in sales 5 years in a row. One year being #1. I have been in the top 5 in building my team of Agents 5 years in a row. The Most Valuable Agent award was presented to me in 2017. I have also received the Outstanding Achievement and Leadership Awards. And I have either been in the top 5 or won every company sponsored contest 5 years in a row. In addition, I was named a trainer for the company and spent nearly 3 years traveling the country training thousands of FES Agents. And, I am a Vice President and member of the prestigious R&R Club. OK enough of that.
ERA Credit Services
Before I get into sharing our training program (personal and FES training) let me talk about the name of my independent agency with Financial Education Services. When most people become Agents they simply use their own name. I decided to brand a company name for my agency, ERA Credit Services. So, if you were to go to YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn or even my website you would see the name of ERA Credit Services. FES or Financial Education services, is not mentioned often and is not mentioned on our website at all. There is a strategic reason behind it that I can explain more in detail if we ever get the chance to discuss this business.
Building the Financial Education Services Business
In general, you can build an FES business 2 ways. And, you can combine, as I have, both of these ways. You can build it organically, meaning without paid advertising. And you can build it through paid advertising. I have done and continue to do both. Therefore I can teach you how to do both but with a disclaimer.
If you have an advertising budget and are familiar with online tools such as sales funnels, social media and Google Ads this is a great way to go. However, your budget and your knowledge have to be extensive. I cannot, nor can anyone else that’s busy running their own business, teach you Facebook, Instagram, Google Ads and sales funnels from scratch. Again, you have to bring a certain level of experience in these areas to the table.
Anyone Can Learn the FES Business
However, you do not need to have any level of significant experience to learn this business and build it organically (without paid advertising). This is an area that I have flourished in and so has my team. There are very specific methods of procuring customers and agents that I can teach you. There is a system with tools that I have developed for my team that I also teach and that each agent on my team has access to.
The FES Success System of Training
FES has developed a top notch online training program. It will teach you the basics from getting your website and services set up to using their mini sales funnel called FES Connect. A huge benefit to this online training program is that it’s flexible for our agents. They can access the training anytime of the day or night so it really helps those agents that have a full time job and a family.
I take a personal interest in the success of each agent on my team. Immediately after an agent joins FES we set up our 1st coaching call. From there my FES agents have a link they can use to schedule coaching calls very week if they like. They also have my cell phone and know that I respond to calls and texts very quickly.
Weekly Live Training
In addition, I conduct live training sessions every week through Facebook Live and our private team Facebook page. I cover different topics each week about sales, recruiting, credit repair, customer service and more. Facebook is a great platform for this as any previous Facebook Live can be viewed by new and veteran agents on their schedule.
What Else Do You Need to Be Successful With FES?
Financial Education Services and I will provide you with everything you need. However, each new FES Agent has to bring with them a sincere desire to succeed and a willingness to get outside their comfort zone. They also have to be coachable and okay with learning new business strategies and letting some old philosophies go. And finally, they have to have a strong work ethic that is commensurate with the kind of success they want to achieve.
Part Time and Full Time Agents
What I love about the FES business is that people can earn a steady part time income of between $500 and $1,000 a month or they can earn a significant 6 figure income. They only difference is the time and effort that they put in.
