How to Run a Successful
Credit Repair Business – Warm Market

For years I’ve been blogging about “How to Start a Credit Repair Business.” I’ve discussed all aspects of getting a credit repair business set up, from federal and state laws to websites. If you are still researching that phase, then look through my Credit Repair Blog and YouTube channel for that sort of information. However, it’s time to start sharing aspects of how to run a successful credit repair business once it’s started.

These blog posts and YouTube videos will break down best practices to get a credit repair business off to a good start. As well, I’ll discuss communication tools, internet and phone apps, software, marketing techniques and much more. If you follow and read these blog posts, and/or watch the corresponding videos, you’ll learn exactly how I’ve developed a very successful credit repair business. In addition, you’ll discover how I do it from a home office and earn six figures a year doing so.

I’m going to address marketing first for 2 reasons. First, that’s what most people are concerned with and want to know about. Second, as I cover what I have done to market my business I’ll discuss the tools and technology I use to do so. So, let’s start where you should start, your warm market.

Start with Your Warm Market

I know. I get it. You most likely tensed up or even grunted when you read that last sentence. It seems that most people don’t want to let the people that they know, know they just started a new business. That’s just not logical. Further, it shows signs of insecurity about oneself or a lack of confidence in the business they’re starting.  Here’s the reality. If you don’t feel that the people closet to you, or even acquaintances, should know about your new credit repair business, the you shouldn’t start it.

On the other hand, if you’re excited about letting everyone know you’re available to help people improve their credit situation you already have a leg up on the competition. Now we just need to figure out the best way to do it. Do you do an email blast? Should you text everyone? Should you call key people? Let’s explore some possibilities.

The key is your attitude and how you’re thinking about it. You are starting a new business. And you want to learn how to run a successful credit repair business. Think of it as any new business. What if you were starting a new tax business? How about if you just got your real estate license? Or you were opening a new boutique. What if you bought a Sports Clips franchise? What would you do then? How would you get the word out to everyone that you know about your new business?

If I Did It All Over Again

Here’s something I would do if I were doing it all over again. In fact, this is something you could do a couple of times a year. Host a gathering at your home or a local restaurant. Get some finger foods and serve beverages. Wine and beer if you’re so inclined. If you’re not opposed to alcohol, I think it’s a good idea for the simple reason that a drink or two loosens people up.

Have flyers and brochures available and invite people from all aspects of your life. Some family members that are supportive and don’t think you’ve lost it because you’re not working for someone else. Call anyone you know in real estate, the mortgage business or banking. Invite other entrepreneurs you know in any business. Make it a good opportunity for people to get to know other people. Prepare to speak to the crowd that gathers for 5 minutes max about your new business and let the party flow.

If you’re more of a business or formal mindset you could host a presentation of your new business. You could do a PowerPoint presentation of your services and educate people on the importance of good credit. And you can close with how they can help you grow your business which is referrals. If they need help with their credit, they’ll tell you. Trust me. You don’t need to ask.

Just Get the Word Out

If you don’t want to go through the effort to do something like hosting a gathering, then you still need to contact people that you know. In our business we have developed phone apps for that purpose. All your contacts are automatically transferred to the app. Then you can send a contact a message letting them know about your business. If they express any interest in learning more, you can send them a link to a 2-minute teaser video.

By the way I would NOT do an email blast. That’s very impersonal, very old school, and most importantly ineffective.

Another bit of advice that might seem like common sense is do not approach people that you know as credit repair candidates. Again, if they need help let them approach you after they know about your business. Approach them by asking them to help you get the word out about your business. The people that you know, know a ton of people. You can expand your sphere of influence very rapidly by engaging your contacts.

If you embrace the idea of contacting your warm market this can not only get your business off to a great start, but it can keep you busy for a long time. And, for the most part, it’s free (except the appetizers and drinks part).

Incorporate the Efforts of Others to Run Your Credit Repair Business

Another unique aspect to our business model is that you can bring on others that also want to start a new business. Why not join you in the credit repair business? You could be full time while they just want to earn a little side hustle money. Or visa versa. Either way you earn a percentage of what they produce. By getting the word out to people that you know you could expand your business immediately. You’ll have people referring people to you. And, you might have some people that join you in the business and have a huge incentive to duplicate your efforts. That means they’ll be telling a lot of people about it too!

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective
Credit Repair Business Owners

The credit repair business is a great home based business option. You can help a lot of people and it can be very lucrative.

However, the business failure rate is extremely high if you don’t have the right business model or operate your business in the right way.

Learn the habits that successful credit repair business owners have in common and avoid the mistakes many make.

7 habits highly effective credit repair business owners

Extract – The 7 Habits of Highly Effective
Credit Repair Business Owners

Credit Repair is a great choice as a part-time or full-time business. You help people improve their lives while having the opportunity to change your own. However, there is much to learn about starting and running a credit repair business. In the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Credit Repair Business Owners I give you 7 key elements from my experience as a highly successful credit repair business owner. I believe this is the most honest and candid information about the credit repair business that you will find. I hope you find it valuable as you do your research into this dynamic and potentially lucrative industry.

The Ultimate Goal – Interdependence

The late Stephen Covey published ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ in 1989. It has now sold over 25 million copies in 40 languages around the world. He outlines 7 specific habits that we should develop to move us through stages from Dependence to Independence and finally to Interdependence.

Interdependence, the ultimate goal is “the paradigm under which we cooperate to achieve something that cannot be achieved independently.” Read this sentence again. It is a theme discussed in different ways by nearly every author of business building and personal development information from Napoleon Hill to John Maxwell. Robert Kiyosaki maintains that in order to reach financial independence we must develop systems and networks. By developing systems and networks we become ‘interdependent’ and thus can rely on others to help us produce far more than we can on our own.

To test this theory, try and think of just one highly successful individual that did it all on their own. My first inclination is to think of professional athletes. They surely were alone in achieving their success, weren’t they? In sports you perform as an individual even if part of a team. Yet in virtually every Hall of Fame speech the athlete runs out of time giving thanks and credit to dozens of people that impacted their career. And without whom they wouldn’t be standing at that podium on that day.

The 7 Habits of Highly Successful Credit Repair Business Owners

The 7 habits listed below are separate concepts and each will help you build your credit repair business. But combined they will help you go from Independence to the ultimate goal of Interdependence. They will help you achieve much of what Covey, Hill, Kiyosaki and many others have been trying to teach us for decades.

In ‘The 7 Habits’ Covey lists the 1st habit as ‘Be Proactive’. I’m going to assume you are already being proactive because you are taking the time to read this. You want to discover the missing keys to your success in credit repair. Therefore, I’m going to take his 2nd habit, ‘Begin with the End in Mind’ and make it our 1st habit.

What You Need to
Start a Credit Repair Business

For several years I have been blogging and producing videos about how to, and what you need to start a credit repair business. If done correctly the credit repair business can be an incredibly lucrative and rewarding home-based business. However, it’s all about the business model. If someone chooses the wrong business model it can be a failure before it gets off the ground.

The reason I am qualified to share this information is that I started my own credit repair business in 2012. Today that business produces nearly $1 million in annual revenue and provides me a very comfortable 6 figure income. I have worked from home the entire time and control my schedule. My wife and I travel whenever we like. I can decide to work while traveling or have someone on the team work my business for me and shut down completely.

The revenue, income and time freedom I enjoy are all a result of the business model we chose. I cannot stress this enough. You can choose to go it alone and start a credit repair business all on your own. I contend that if you choose this type of business model you will never generate the revenue, income and time freedom you perhaps desire.

What Are You Trying to Accomplish?

I believe that in order to start a successful credit repair business you must look at what you want that business to accomplish for you before you start it. You must also think about what you need to start a credit repair business. What are all the components of a credit repair business? Then decide how you’re going to implement them.

The chart below is a list of items you must consider before you begin any work on starting your business. As you will see there is a lot to think about. You can easily compare starting a credit repair business on your own versus joining our company as an independent credit repair agency owner.

Please note that an independent agency is a business that you own. You can sell that business or will it to your heirs just like starting your own business by yourself. However, as you can see, the advantages are many.

If you want to explore more about owning an independent credit repair agency I give you the process of doing that below the chart.

How to Build a Credit Repair Business

How to Build a Credit Repair Business

You Can’t Create Momentum When You Have to Create Everything

You’ve heard the saying, “You don’t know what you don’t know”? I resign myself to this many times when I’m talking to people that call me for information on how to build a credit repair business.

The first stage of someone learning about starting a credit repair business almost always begins with changing a preconceived mindset that they have to build it all themselves. Because what they don’t yet realize initially is the enormous amount of time, energy and money it will take to build it from scratch.

Even if they do learn how to build a credit repair business all on their own what they don’t often think about is how they’ll compete against other companies with experience, technology and track record. And, what about the state and federal laws they have to navigate through? These laws cost more money and limit the amount of revenue and profit they can earn.

Let’s say they get through all of this and build a credit repair business on their own. Great! Now, how are they going to find the time to get clients, not just a few but hundreds of clients, and deliver the service to those clients?

There’s another saying, “If you want it done right, do it yourself”. That saying is what unsuccessful people abide by. Successful people use the efforts of others that know more than they do about how to do something. That’s how they get more done and build large, successful businesses.

Build a Credit Repair Business for Less Than $300

What if there were a way to build a credit repair business for less than $300 total start up costs? It includes training on exactly what to do to get a steady stream of clients, staff to provide the service delivery to the clients, technology to keep them and their clients informed, and access to all the marketing materials they’ll need.

And, what if someone could build it small, or build it all over the country by incorporating the efforts of other Independent Agents? And, learn directly how to build a credit repair business from a top producer in the credit repair industry. Not just someone that teaches, but someone that is currently running a successful credit repair business.

This opportunity exists. It takes an open mind to understand a different type of business model and it takes training and hard work. But if someone is willing to learn and work hard they can be where they want to be in a far shorter time.

How to Build a Credit Repair Business
Start a Credit Repair Agency TODAY!

Start a Credit Repair Agency TODAY!

When you come up with the idea to start a credit repair business it seems pretty simple. But after doing some research you realize that there’s a lot to it. And, it’s going to take more time and money than you originally anticipated. Even just the basics can be hurdles to jump over. But I’m hear to give you good news. You can start a credit repair agency and do it today!

To Do List for Starting a Credit Repair Business

Federal and State Laws have to be researched and overcome. Can you afford to not accept upfront fees? And, can you afford the surety bond if one is required by your state.

You’ll need to find a way to pull credit for your clients or are you going to have to ask your clients to pull their own? Or, maybe they sign up for a credit report service and give you their username and password. That’s not ideal.

Then you become aware that it’s next to impossible to find a merchant services company to work with someone in the credit repair business. So, how are you going to be able to process credit and debit cards?

Of course, you have to choose the best credit repair software to use. Or, at least pick one that isn’t going to cost a fortune.

Maybe you know how to build a website, maybe not. But that has to be tackled for sure.

In order to start a credit repair agency you have to have credit repair training

Oh, and marketing materials like business cards, brochures and flyers. Too bad you couldn’t have a high quality video.

And all that’s just for starters. You haven’t yet figured out who’s going to do the marketing, the sales, and deliver the credit repair service. Oh wait, that’s all on you!

What If There Were a Way to Start a Credit Repair Agency TODAY?

Well, there is! Our company has been in business since 2004 and offers an opportunity for you to own your own credit repair business as an independent Agency. It’s very similar to a State Farm Insurance Agency. You would market to and sell to customers and the parent company delivers the services.

But credit repair only works on Payment History which makes up just 35% of a credit score. What about the other 65%? You’ll have other services to provide to your clients at no extra charge that will affect 100% of their credit score.

But Here’s the Best Part

Credit Repair Business – The Reality

It’s a Great Business But…

The changes in the American economy over the last 2 decades have created a huge market of consumers in need of help with their credit report and increasing their credit score. As a result, many people have decided to look into starting a credit repair business.

But just like any other business there are challenges. If you have never attempted starting a credit repair business before there is a lot of information to gather and knowledge necessary to do it the right way. The credit repair industry, like many others, has a high percentage of people that start the business and quit within the first year. Why is that? And how do you avoid being one of those people? This article will cover the points you need to consider.

Laws and Licensing

There are no licenses you need to have to be in the credit repair business. However, you do have a few laws you must consider. And, these laws may be different in each state. The Credit Restoration Organizations Act (CROA), a federal law, states that a for profit company cannot charge fees before performing credit repair work for a consumer. Although many have come up with creative ways to deal with this law it will affect cash flow for a new business owner. However, attorneys, banks, credit unions and 501(c)3 non-profit companies may charge upfront fees. They are exempt from CROA.

In addition, certain states require surety bonds up to $100,000. Bonds will run you between $1,000 and $10,000 every 2 years depending on the surety amount and your credit score. Yes, credit score affects just about everything.

Fees for Service

In addition to deciding how you are going to charge for your credit repair services (if you cannot charge upfront how are you going to charge?) you must also decide how much to charge. Gone are the days when you can charge $1,500 to $5,000 for credit repair services. There are established, reputable companies that charge $90 to $125/month for a very effective service. You’ll have to compete with that when starting a credit repair business.

Initial Investment of Starting a Credit Repair Business

There are typically two ways to go with starting a credit repair business. The first is to purchase all the necessary components such as software, a web site, legal documents, training, etc. separately. We’ve estimated this cost to be about $10,000 in the first year although these items can be purchased on a monthly basis. The other way to go is to purchase a franchise. The investment in a credit repair franchise is between $19,000 and $25,000. Don’t be discouraged if you do not have $10,000. We will give you a third alternative below that has a start up cost of less than $300.00.

Technology

Consumers today expect that a company will have technology in place to allow them to stay in touch and keep track of what’s happening with the progress of their credit repair process. You must provide your customers with the ability to check the status of their account online to be competitive in this industry. Doing this as solopreneur may be an expensive and daunting task.

Skill Sets

If you’re doing it alone in this business you have to be good at three things, marketing, sales and administration. You have to be a good marketer. Selling your credit repair service to friends and family may get you started but you must position yourself as a credit repair expert in your area. You have to get the word out in the community by developing relations with other business professionals that may have clients that need your service. You must have an online presence as well. Not just a website but the ability to drive traffic to your web site. You need to have leads coming to you every day.

Then you have to be great at sales especially when you’re new because you have no track record or credibility to fall back on. You have to sell against local and national companies that your prospective customer is going to contact as well. Even if your company has the same credentials and advantages as other companies how good are you at selling and closing sales?

Lastly, you have to be good at credit repair. Can you pull credit reports (credit report brokers don’t want to supply credit repair companies) and analyze those reports. Do you know how to advise the client as to the probability of removing all types of items (foreclosures, liens, charge offs, medical bills, repossessions, late payments and more). You then have to know the correct dispute codes and reasons that a credit bureau will open a dispute about these items. Then you have to track this information and be prepared to challenge each item multiple times for a client. This is no easy set of tasks.

Time

You have to have time to do all that is stated above when starting a credit repair business. Credit repair business owners can’t find time to develop new customers because they are doing the credit repair work for their existing customers. Or, they can’t find the time to service the customer because they are trying to develop new customers.

The Solution

Everything stated above comes from experience. It seems daunting, and if done on your own it is. However, we have developed a system for new credit repair business owners that addresses and overcomes everything we have discussed here.

All the state laws and requirements are met. You can do business in ALL 50 states right away.

There is a low initial investment of less than $300.00.

This system provides the latest technology for you to offer customers.

There is an online training platform and one-on-one credit repair business coaching.

You utilize a staff to do the credit repair admin work. This allows you the time to market and sell to customers.

In addition, you’ll provide the best, fastest, and most effective credit repair service in the industry.

But the best component to this solution is that you can develop other people that want to build a credit repair business. They are part of your business and you earn income from their production.

It is without question the best opportunity for anyone that desires to start a credit repair business.

Credit Repair Business – The Reality
Credit Repair Business Plan

Credit Repair Business Plan

To start a credit repair business, or any business, you must think about a credit repair business plan.

In doing so most people will start thinking about what they need. After doing just a bit of research on the internet they may decide they need software, a website, knowledge of state law, and training. That may seem logical. But I would recommend you start from a different place.

Building a Credit Repair Business Plan

Instead of first thinking about what you need, first think about what you’re trying to accomplish for yourself. What do you want this new business to do for you? How is your new credit repair business going to fit into your life and your existing job or business? When starting a credit repair business first consider the following:

  • How many hours per week can you devote to it?
  • What are you willing to do to market your new business?
  • How much time are you able to give your business before it generates a profit?
  • What can you afford to invest into starting a credit repair business?
  • Are you willing to do all the administrative labor for your clients?
  • If so, will you still have time to find new clients and referrals?
  • Will doing all of what is required take away from an existing business or job?
  • Do you like, are you good at, or are you willing to learn how to sell?

Once you answer questions like these now you can start looking at different credit repair business models. Yes, there are different ways to set up your credit repair business depending on your needs and desires.

Match Your Needs and Desires with the Right Credit Repair Business Model

Time and Money is Abundant

If you have a significant amount of financial resources and time you can start your business from scratch. You can research and buy credit repair software. You can build a website, social media pages, start a blog, and all else that’s necessary to drive traffic to your website. You can build a sales funnel for online marketing. You can do the administrative work and still market your business to continually find new clients.

Time is Limited, But Money Isn’t a Problem

You can then purchase a credit repair franchise. You’ll have most everything from a credit repair standpoint already set up for you. You’ll only need to focus on setting up the marketing your business. Hopefully the franchisor you choose will provide the administrative tools to do the credit repair work. Just know that buying a credit repair franchise starts at $9,500 and goes much higher.

Time and Money are Limited

If this is the case you’ll need to find a business model that takes care of a lot of the set up and ongoing credit repair process for you. You will be charged only a nominal fee to get your business set up. You’ll have a staff that does the redundant work of credit repair for your clients. And, your marketing materials, videos, online marketing tools, website and more are set up for you from day one. Plus all the state and federal law requirements are satisfied in all 50 states. That means you can do business anywhere in the country.

What is this Credit Repair Business Plan?

In the credit repair industry people typically spend more time, effort and money researching how to get their business started than they can afford. They don’t create a credit repair business plan. They don’t consider what they truly want out of a credit repair business. And therefore they either quit before they get started, or they fail just a few months into it.

The Best Credit Repair Business Plan in the Country

We started a credit repair business in 2012. We built that into a business that produces nearly $1 million in revenue annually and a 6 figure income. You can exactly the same thing. All you need to do is take 30 minutes to watch a video detailing the business model and then book a phone appointment to get your questions answered. If nothing else, you’ll be much more aware before you start your credit repair business. But this credit repair business plan and business model may fit perfectly into what you’re trying to accomplish.

Credit Repair Business Owner

90% of people fail as a credit repair business owner. Don’t let that discourage you. It’s actually a good thing because it weeds out those that make a poor decision regarding their business model. It should however, make you curious about why choosing a business model is so important. And, want to find out what the credit repair business model options are.

We’ll discuss the options below but just know that if you choose a business model where you are doing all the work (marketing, sales, service delivery) you will fall into the category of the 90% who fail. It’s inevitable. That’s not because of your abilities necessarily. It’s because there are only so many hours in a day and you HAVE NO LEVERAGE!

Think about it. As an employee working for someone else you were trading time for money. Go to work for a certain number of hours and bring home a check. If you didn’t work, there was no check. What would be different of you became a credit repair business owner and had to do all the work yourself? You still HAVE NO LEVERAGE!

You could never stop working. You couldn’t even make money when you took time off or got sick. Yes, you are working for yourself but you’re the only one that’s working!

Credit Repair Business Owner – Choose Wisely

It’s all about being an entrepreneur versus a solopreneur. Solopreneurs work for themselves but also by themselves.

But what if you could use leverage to have systems and people in place working for you? This is what entrepreneurs do. First, you could have more customers and make more income. Next, you could develop passive income by having others generate business for you. And, you’d have a system in place to deliver the services to all these customers.

How do you build something like this as a credit repair business owner? You can’t. Or, at least most of us can’t because we simply don’t have the time, money and expertise to do it. It takes years, millions of dollars, and decades of experience.

So, we’ve put this system together for anyone that wants to work smarter and not harder. And, become an entrepreneur as a credit repair business owner. Make no mistake. You still have to work hard. But why work harder at something that has a 90% chance of failing? Why not make a smart decision to begin with and work hard to build that?

Credit Repair Business Owner – The Solution

We’ve partnered with two other companies to build this system. First, a company that provides all the technology and infrastructure. This includes websites, customer portals, delivery of the services, customer support, and satisfaction of legal requirements in all 50 states.

The other company trains people on how to run a successful business and become a true entrepreneur. And, if someone wants to expand their business by developing a team of people to sell and build a business, they train them as well.

These two companies are both vitally important to our success and to yours. You can’t have one and not the other. You can’t have a vehicle and then not learn how to drive it. And, what good would it be to learn how to drive and not have a vehicle?

This system has proven to help people earn millions of dollars as a credit repair business owner. It’s also helped people have a credit repair service available to their clients from another business. They don’t have to spend all their time delivering credit repair. They can focus their time on their main business and still produce the result they are looking for.

How to Start a Credit Repair Business

How to Start a Credit Repair Business

If you want to learn how to start a credit repair business you first have to ask yourself some questions.

How many hours per week or per month do I have to devote to a credit repair business?

Do I have the necessary expertise in technology, sales, marketing, and customer service?

When I start my credit repair business do I want to do all the work myself?

Do I want to do it the hard way or the easy way?

I’m not trying to dampen your spirits about learning how to start a credit repair business. I’m trying to save you a lot of time, energy and money. The reason I am qualified to do this is only because I started a credit repair business in August of 2012 and become very successful with it. If I can pass along what I’ve learned to you then taking the time to write this is well worth it to me.

I get calls from many people every week asking me about this topic. The fact is that we don’t know what we don’t know. Then we read on the internet how easy it is and how much money we can make. It’s therefore, very enticing to learn how to start a credit repair business.

What They Don’t Tell You

What they don’t tell you is that if you have to do all the marketing, selling and service delivery yourself, you’ll never have enough business to make a substantial income. The reason is that there just isn’t enough hours in a day. The solution is to have other people representing you that are independent and not employees.

I’m sure you’ve figured this out by now but here’s what you need:

  • Credit repair law training and how to build a business in this industry
  • Knowledge of the federal laws and laws in your state
  • Knowledge of the competition both locally and nationally
  • Technology to build online reporting for your client
  • A website to market your business
  • Knowledge of how to market a credit repair business
  • And more…

Software is NOT All That You Need

Many companies that want to sell you their software may tell you that you don’t need any of this. Or, that it’s simple to learn. It’s not.

After nearly 7 years in the industry I would suggest that you align yourself with a company that’s already done all of this and simply represent them as an Independent Agent. Get your business started now by using what someone else has already built. Be successful with it. If at some point you’re still dead set on starting your own separate company, at least then you’ll know not only what is necessary, but how to do it.

Your Options for How to Start a Credit Repair Business

There are a few companies out there that give you the opportunity to align with them and still have your own business. Credit Repair USA and Allied Credit Solutions are two of them.  However, there is only one company that I’ve found that gives you everything you need to be in the credit repair business. They also give you the opportunity to bring on other people and you’ll get paid on their production. Why is that important? Because you can only do so much yourself. Just like all successful business people you want to use leverage.

This means you can be in business tomorrow and avoid the overwhelming time, cost and information you’ll have to learn about how to start a credit repair business.

Start a Credit Repair Business
for Around $300

If you want to start credit repair business and have already done a bit of searching on the internet you may have come to the conclusion that you basically have two options. The first is to piece together the infrastructure of your business by buying software to generate dispute letters, a website, contracts, training and other essential components. Or, you could purchase a credit repair franchise that presumably has everything you need to get started. We actually are going to provide you a third option to start a credit repair business below that solves a major challenge that the first two do not.

The Challenge in Starting a Credit Repair Business

Neither of the first two options overcomes the challenge of having enough time to not only find clients but also provide the credit repair service for those clients. Finding clients is a full time job by itself. Doing the work of credit repair is another full-time job. Therefore, the first two options come with limitations to the amount of credit repair business you can generate. To break through this limitation you’ll have to hire staff to go out and get the business or deliver the credit repair service to your clients, whichever part you do not want to do or are least skilled to do. More about this will be discussed below.

And here’s something else. When you get started and talk to your first sales prospects what are you going to say when they ask you about your track record, how long you’ve been in business, the results you’ve been able to achieve for previous clients?

Further, and perhaps most importantly, it is imperative to receive training on how to build a business. This is especially true if you have never started a business before. What if you could be trained by people that have already achieved significant success in building a credit repair business? Wouldn’t it make sense to duplicate what they have already done?

What Do You Need to Start Credit Repair Business?

If you have searched around the internet you probably did a search for the following terms-

start credit repair business

how to start a credit repair business

starting a credit repair business

credit repair business opportunity

credit repair business franchise

and terms very similar. What you most likely found are the types of opportunities mentioned above. Companies that provide pieces of the infrastructure, and others that offer a credit repair franchise.

Before you can decide on a company to work with that offers pieces of the credit repair business infrastructure you’ll want to understand what you’ll need. Here is a partial list of what it takes to start a credit repair business.

First off a web site is essential, of course. If you know how to use WordPress or otherwise can build a website, that’s great. Or, you can pay someone to set up the site for you. Either way you’ll still need to draft text for that web site such as frequently asked questions, a marketing video explaining your service, a contact form, an option for a client to sign up for your credit repair service online, and more.

Another important element is giving your client online access to their account and the ability to check on the progress of their service, what items are being disputed, what items have been deleted, etc. This is essential to compete in today’s credit repair market.

You’ll need professionally designed marketing materials- brochures, flyers, videos, business cards, logo. Many companies today have quality videos about their credit repair service.

You’ll have to provide credit repair contracts for your state and other states if you want to do business outside your state. Note that if you want to conduct business outside your own state you’ll have to fulfill all the requirements in each state as you do with your own state.

You’ll need a dedicated phone line for sales and customer support. Using your personal phone for your business not be sufficient.

You’ll of course need to find training on credit repair law such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act and the Credit Repair Organizations Act, sales training, and training on building a business that can be done online and in person. Here’s list of states that require Surety Bonds

What Credit Repair Companies Provide Everything?

There are companies that provide a lot of the essential elements in getting your credit repair business s started. CreditRepair Cloud is one of those companies. The cost will range from $179 to $599 per month. But CreditRepair Cloud doesn’t overcome the big 3 challenges. You still have to do all the work of getting clients and delivering the service, you have no track record, and you get no business building training.

Credit Repair Franchise

When we first launched our business in 2012 there were some franchise options. Those companies have now gone out of business. There are many reasons why the franchise option didn’t work. Restricted territories, high start up costs, and franchise fees are a few.

There is also a company once called Credit Repair Nerds that has now changed their name to Credit Repair USA which is not a franchise. They consider you a licensee. According to a video on their website they’ve been bringing on licensees since March of 2015 and have about 90 such licensees. Licensing fees ranged from $999 to $4,500. They now seem to be offering a new program for $99/month. It’s difficult to figure out what their business model is from their website so we suggest you call them if your interested.

You’ll have to check with them to see if they have registered with your state and followed through with state requirements such as a surety bond. If they have not you’ll have to provide that yourself. Even if they have you may be restricted to doing business just in your state.

The Company That Provides Everything to Get You Started in Credit Repair for Just $300

So, what if you could find a company that provided everything you need to get started as stated above?

And, did all the credit repair service work for you so your job would simply be to go out and get paying clients.

And, offered credit repair at one of the most competitive rates in the industry.

And, offered clients a satisfaction money back guarantee.

And, has been in the credit repair business since 2004 with stellar third party documentation.

And, did not limit you with geographical limitations. You can do business in any and all 50 states.

And, gave you the opportunity to develop an unlimited team of other Agents, and get paid on their business.

And, allowed you to offer other credit related services such as online credit monitoring, credit and identity protection though Lifelock, suggestions and solutions of positive trade lines for your clients, a Will and Trust, a service to help your clients pay off their bills faster, and more.

And, provided you with all their services potentially free and included up to $100,000 in term life insurance.

And, you could get started immediately for $288.00 plus $89/month. By the way, the $89/month is waived after you get your first 5 customers.

In addition to training that is second to none, you get one on one mentorship from someone who has built a business using the same system and is one of the top producers in the company.

If you’re serious about getting into the credit repair business this is not a hard decision.

ERA Credit Services can offer you the opportunity to start credit repair business, get everything listed above, and do it for $288.00 out of pocket start up costs. You can literally start today and begin earning money by the end of the day. We also have the best compensation plan in the industry.
