Commercial Finance Consultant Program
With earnings potential well into the six-figures, a career as a Freelance Commercial Finance Consultant is a profession almost like no other. We warn you no to be fooled by the few schools that train in this industry and charge thousands upon thousands to teach you. This career is NOT that difficult and you will find your real challenges are related to marketing (like anyone in business) rather than spending weeks and weeks learning the various types of business finance.
Unlike the Sponsored Agents, here you do not work as an intern / lead generator for a single lender. Here you will work with multiple lenders and represent multiple product lines. Factoring is an important product. But as a Commercial Finance Consultant, you will also provide cash-starved small and mid-size business owners with YOUR researces for SBA loans, Revolving Line of Credit, Purchase Order Finance, Inventory Loans, Equipment Loans and Leasing, Export Financing. merchant Cash, and much much more. In fact, IACFB provides you with hundreds of actual lenders that provide all of those types of loans and more with IACFB’s American Directory of Factors and Lenders with nearly 500 included in a searchable database. You will never lose a business finance deal without the ability to find the right lender
And, we say again, do not pay $5,000 – $50,000 for this training. Anyone can become a successful business factoring consultant and loan broker for a fraction of those fees through the Academy Campus here at IACFB.
Questions and Answers
You do require a sponsor and IACFB is the program’s “default” sponsor. You can, at anytime, opt to begin working with any factor at your choice. There is a difference in commissions. This is a FREE Program once you have completed the course.
Yes!. Although IACFB is the “default” sponsor of the Agent’s Program, you will earn a little more if you work directly with a factor. Although the standard rate for commissions for brokers and agents is 10% of fees earned, some factors are significantly higher and especially for agents that are “productive”.
The Sponsored Agents Program is normally $99.95 for those not sponsored BUT your sponsor will provide you with a PROMO or COUPON for $50.00 when you finish the course for you to use during checkout at DataMax. That coupon only works ONE TIME, however. If you have your credit card fail after 30 days for hosting of your site or decide to take “a break” and then want back in, the COUPON will not be valid and you will be forced to pay the $99.95 to re-enter
Factors and IACFB sponsor “agents” but our highly trained Commercial Finance Consultants do as well. Sponsored Agents are “lead generators” and, to the point, the more Sponored Agents you have, the more leads you will have to work. Simply put, Sponsored Agents are a valuable NETWORK that provides leads from just being in the right place, at the right time, with the right knowledge.
Well, the proper term in the industry is “Clients” but you will learn factoring terminology in the courses. To answer your question, all most all Sponsored Agents strictly network, getting referrals for qualified leads. Commercial Finance Consultants use a CRM (we train you on Pipedrive CRM) to build lists of prospects who they mail to and cold call. CFCs still use networking foi at least 50% of the time like Agents, but direct marketing is used as well.
Business-in-a-Box at the ANNEX is a suite of direct marketing tools and aids that are included with the Commercial Finance Consultant Program which includes Postcards, Mail Stuffers, Flyers, Cover Letters, Cold Call Scripts and much more.
Periodically, IACFB will provide PROMOTIONS. When any promotions are “active”, they are posted at the IACFB Magazine under the “CONTESTS” category.
Yes, both the Sponsored Agent Landing Page and the FB-Series websites include blogs. While blogging is not necessary, it’s a great way to generate high quality leads for both factoring and other types of alternative commercial finance.
Both types of websites for the two different programs include an “OFFER” which is a PDF booklet called, “When Banks Say NO!,…The Small Business Guide to Factoring.” This booklet is one of your primary lead generators and, in fact, giving that book to business owners that request it is EXACTLY how Sponsored Agents work. The more booklets they have downloaded every month, the more leads they generate for their sponsor. The more leads, the more commissions. It truly is a numbers game.
Though not typically used for Sponsored Agents Pipedrive is a CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) which is software which literally runs your marketing and back office functions if you are a career driven Commercial Finance Consultant. For example, as a CFC, you will build large books of leads and propects. Count on about 1,000 new prospects each year. You cannot possibly manage marketing to such numbers if you don’t use a CRM.
Years ago at IACFB we at to determine a quality CRM that was affordable and after some significant searching, we selected Pipedrive because it was perfect for how needs for consults. There are 4 different plan for Pipedrive. The plan we recommend is about $35 per month. Again, Sponsored Agents are “time and place” networkers to generate leads so they do not use a CRM. Career Freelance CFCs cannot operate effectively without a CRM of some kind. We provide a FREE 15 days with an IACFB recommendation of Pipedrive. You can see videos at YouTube..
One of the most attractive characteristics about Sponsored Agents is that there are literally all types, shapes, and sizes. Remember, Agents work in the factoring product almost exclusively and that means “residual commissions”. Those can build up quickly and significantly. You should that are “active” in networking can earn almost any amount but we feel that “good” sponsored agents should set goals or targets. Let your first be $1,000 per month and then set $1,500 and on and on.
As we said, as a Sponsored Agent you have NO JOB other than to generate a lead. Once a business owner requests and download our offer of the PDF booklet, you are done. Your sponsor does the rest. The more time you spend at networking events, the better you will generate leads and build commission income.
